Absolutely....we were incredibly close last year.

 

Atlanta game....Cam's fumble

Chicago game...Smitty fell down

Seattle game....game short armed a wide open Brokel in the endzone

TB game....complete collapse in the last two minutes

Dallas game....outplayed them all game to only collapse in the last 2 min

 

 

You win any 3 of those and we are 10-6

 

This team has a ton of talent and the defense just got much better.

 

We WILL be in the playoff mix this season.

and we had a legitimate shot to win all 5...my head hurts

Don't forget the KC game if we can stop Jamal Charles we win that going away. That's 6 games we should have won.

 

Not to mention the fist Tampa Game and Chud's unprepared game plan.

people keep on saying that cam's fumble cost us that game, but did he lose the fumble? was it fourth down? was it highly unlikely that we would, with our stable of RBs and cam frikkin newton be able to get the one yard we needed to get that first down? did he decide to punt and give one of the best and most efficient offenses with two of the best WRs in the game and one of the best pass catching TEs in the history of the game a chance to get the ball down the field against a weak secondary  making it nakamura's responsibility to cover roddy white while gamble rushed the QB?

 

and so what if the punt was placed perfectly. where was the guarantee that it would  fall just right? 

 

cam didn't help by losing the ball, but  that game was lost more because of game management at the end of the game than cam fumbling. the same thing can be said for every game we lost in the last couple minutes. but that's what happens when you are dumb enough to give the other team the ball and an opportunity to score when the rules favor the deep passing game and your secondary is weak. you end up playing to the other teams strengths rather than yours.

I think it's a fight between us (Panthers) and Atlanta for the South this season.

Other than TB's secondary, they have an average Dline with bad linebackers.

NO sucks and is very old. Switching to a 34 D with no outside pass rusher and true Dline with cost them plenty of games. Vaccaro may be pretty good but that secondary is Roman Harper old. Breed will have to out up 45 points every week to keep up. Too bad he won't BR able to bc he'll be laying on his ass against us.

Funny and sad that this sports writer in Utah is more knowledgeable than most of the national media when it comes to the Panthers.

Was not intended to mean that Cam cost us the game. Merely that it was one play (fluke) that had it not happened, the game was over.

I was merely pointing out that if a couple of specific plays had gone our way, we would have been a playoff team last year.

Stop trying to turn everything into an insult to Cam.

i wasn't trying to make it an insult to Vsm or whoever you are talking about.

 

i was trying to deflect blame to the place it ultimately lies for most if our losses, esp.  close ones...the coaching staff. unless they do their job better, this team will continue to underachieve, even with an influx of talent.

The TB game and terrible defensive call at the end....on the coaches

 

Cam Fumble/Nak's bonehead play.....player execution

 

Smitty falling and Cam throwing the int....player execution (although not blaming Cam or Smitty as it was just one of those unfortunate fluke plays.

 

Defense at the end of the Chicago game....on the coaches

 

Cam short arming a wide open Brokel....player execution

 

There was plenty of blame to go around last year.....some on the coaches and some on the players (including Cam).

 

I think that everyone learned from those mistakes and will be much better for it this season.
