What is the huddle concensus terribly wrong about this year?

75 posts in this topic

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).

I honestly can't blame Cam for the way he acts it has to be incredibly hard on the guy. He won a Championship every year of his football career before coming to Carolina. Now he's in a situation where he's not only losing but there are players on the team ok with that losing mentality.

He'll mature yes, but I think he will always take losing hard that's just who he is and I'd rather him be upset and take it personal than be those guys laughing on the bench when the team is down by 30.

The secondary sucks! The O-line sucks!  Take your pick!

U can still compete and win with a bad secondary if your pass rush and front 7 is top notch. Many people here think the front 7 has a chance at being one of the best in the NFL. Maybe that is a contender for wrong consensus.

If Cam gets seriously injured the panthers will be picking in the top 5 next season

our defense is not going to be as good as people thing. early on the front line is going to be a problem...we pretty much have a journeyman and a rookie starting a DT

Think one of the things that could surprise us is that we all feel like Rivera couldn't coach his way out of a paper bag...nah...that's still totally true.

All kidding aside I find it hard to fathom that Johnson and Hardy are as effective this year, even if all signs point to the opposite.  It's just the Panther way.

Mike Shula.

Offensive stagnation.

Defensive adjustments lacking.

Shula ends up being better than Chud.  

 

By better, I just mean more consistent/not trying to out think the room and we have a well-oiled machine on offense throughout the season.

I don't think the DL is going to be as good as everyone thinks right off the bat

That seems to be the consensus already.
