Not feeling good about this season

85 posts in this topic

It should be worth noting that every year there is some poor noob Huddler that makes a thread like this early calling the team out for not patching the horrible bleeding we have at so many positions, and every year the huddle skewers him and says "it's only the first day!!!"

Followed by

"it's only been a week!! Relax!!

Preceding

"it's barely been a month!!"

And the last bastions

"we'll probably sigh all out big free agents just before the season starts!!"

concluded by the final delusional dweebs

"dis ain't madden brah! Good teams don't sign good players! They probably get knocked out in the first round of the playoffs!!"

And every year the Panthers stick to "the plan" and continue to wallow in their shame and ineptitude and don't go spending no dollars no confoundit free agents when we got some good ole decent folk on our own the ole fashioned way at the RB position

And then the panthers miss the playoffs and fans act mad and then Richardson promises real change and sends your PSLs in the mail and then doesn't actually do anything else and the cycle begins anew

Just worth remembering

Did we have the Falcons beat in Atlanta? The bears in Chicago? Yes. Tampa Bay in charlotte? yes. How did we lose each game? Defensive backs. We are 10-6 if we had some DBs. We are VERY close as we are. No reason for gloom and doom. We nearly went 10-6 with a 5th round rookie CB, a special teamer at S, and a second-year, fifth rounder at the other CB spot. Munnerlyn is a limited, smallish 7th rounder.

We need a DT and a DB or two. On offense, a RG and maybe a WR. we are close. GMan is doing all he can.

I feel great about this year.

1. Cam entering 3rd year

2. No expectations - always when we have success

3. We have been a play away from under Rivera from being 10 win teams...Cam gets us over now (especially since he has been forgotten)

I'm in the same boat as you. Rivera made a group with some serious holes into a top 10 unit on the defensive side. He's built great defenses in the past, and he obviously knows what he's doing in that regard.

I'm a little concerned about Shula, but I have enough faith in Cam's athletic ability to mask those concerns, at least in the short-term.

I really think that we are justified in being optimistic heading into this season, but time will tell. I've felt that way before, only to be doused with some icy-cold water in the end.

I think we will make the playoffs, but just barely. Everyone will take this as a sign that we have "arrived" and Rivera will get a fat new contract. Then once expectations are high and everyone spends the off season talking about super bowls we spend years being mediocre as hell. This just seems like the appropriate outcome.

No one needs to worry about Shula.

Chud and Scott Shanahan are both average.....they get Cam and RGIII and suddenly people think they are mad scientist. Shula has Cam....suddenly Shula will look like a changed man. Players make coaches....and break them overall.

Hey we have put back to back winning seasons together many times.
