What is the huddle concensus terribly wrong about this year?

It seems like every year we collectively get something completely wrong about the Carolina Panthers.

 

A couple years ago it was "Cam starting off slow and the defense keeping us in games" Turns out the opposite was true.

 

Last year it was "Cam and the offense will blow teams out, no need for a good defense". Turns out the defense kept us in games as the O struggled.

 

 

So take a look around. What is the Huddle consensus on any given topic and what will most likely be a whiff?

Not sure if any of these will work like the above, but the secondary is widely regarded as the achilles heel, so therefore, they should have a banner season.

We will have one of the strongest receiving corps in the league, statistically.

True...every year we are super confident in something and it highly disappoints and a worry normally isn't that bad.

So based on the talks....either Steve Smith or the defensive line disappoint.

Either our secondary or someone not named Smitty is out most productive WR (with Smitty being decent)

No need for anyone to have a meltdown, but unpopular opinion alert incoming:

 

Cam might still have problems with losing properly next year. We all know it's true, we're just huge homers and are blinded to it at times. Cam is a sore loser, and it affects him in games when things aren't going his way. The second half of last season it seemed like he was finally maturing, but will this continue if we get off to YET ANOTHER slow start this year?  Obviously no one knows for sure, but I do know this: Cam is the most critical part of this team. If he can step up both his play and leadership, he can take this team to a new level. If he keeps reverting to a sixth-grader mentality when losing or not playing perfect, this team will never reach its full potential.

 

tl;dr- We all want to hope Cam has finally grown up, not so sure if he really has. Time will tell. His development into an elite quarterback is what is holding us back from getting to the playoffs and making a run.

 

 

Another one I just thought of: don't expect Star and KK to be dominate forces in the first quarter of the season. I expect gradual progression with both of them. Rarely are DT's dominate in their first year in the league (exception: Suh).

Yeah by this logic...

 

-Top 10 offense

-Defense that struggles as a unit

-Some young players step up in a big way and we have a top notch secondary

-Defensive line struggles for some reason, probably because Chico is really good at holding players back (Limiting Star to 60% of defensive snaps)

-One of our WRs finally step up and take over the #1 spot

 

Past those I'd just be pissing in the wind. Honestly, I don't think this logic will work this season.

I think it will be our DLine being dominant this season....usually takes DT's a season to find their groove.
