I've been fooled too many times by the potential of our team.

I appreciate the optimism, I really do. It's hard not to be optimistic when you evaluate our potential. One major factor you overlooked though is coaching. I'm not convinced Rivera can make game day decisions and Shula has a lot to prove. We have a handful of new position coaches as well. Our schedule is the hardest in the league based on 2012 win percentage. We are facing some really well coached teams. We have to stay healthy and we have to have great game day coaching. I think our ceiling is 9 wins in 2013 but still think we are staring at 6 to 8 wins.

 

 

 

I give Rivera benefit of the doubt.....Since he started coaching  panthers, we have improved every year it may not be significant in W-L  but in other areas we have improved drastically ......We are in position to have great year... the DL has been addressed, return of Beason, and competition in secondary.  In the offense we bring back key injured players addressed the O-line, brought in WR for competition, going back to more of traditional offense that we where more successful in & plays to the strength of the team. His game mangagement was not the greatest last season but that was a learning experience for both the coaches and the players ,  i'm pretty sure they want make the same mistake twice knowings whats at stake for them.

 

Far as schedule strength I love it  (coming from the SEC)........ every game is a grind and the competition brings the best out of you. You gotta beat the best to be the best.

 

 

You don't finish with a top 10 defense, top 12 offense (where the  QB had slump and no real running game) without some good coaching.

 

 

As a fan of the team i rather set the goals high than low. 

 

 

10-6 (minimum)

I know it's a cliche saying but I stopped after the line about the OL being as good as any in the league. I don't know how that could be true.

Fans are so manic when it comes to the outlook of the team. The swings in mood are huge.

Read the SI review on us for this season.....they also stated that when healthy we have one of the best OL's in the league.

Don't mention strength of schedule to Dave.....he's likely to explode.

We also simplified the play calling, which should automatically bring better game management.

I'll be honest and say I stopped reading when you tried to pass of Hangartner as even a viable player.

For as atrocious as he was last season, he was worse the year before. This team can seriously claim it's trying to make a run this year and leave him as the starter.

The secondary is in shambles and the WR corp is paper thin. We still have a little bit of work to do this offseason if we wanna make a run.

All the wishing and hoping and homerness in the world isn't going to fix that drayton florence is our top corner on the depth chart.

We'll see..  Like the majority of things I post about.  They are accurate.  

 

 

I don't really give a crap whether you like what I had to say or not...    Like I said... When all is said and done...  Barring major injury my opinion will hit closer to the mark then those that disagree.

 

Hard to argue with this guy when you look at last year's prediction....

Incredible. I gotta say the Cap Cam and Incredible Beason are my 2 favorites.

Cool write up. I did a take on the Panthers season and came away 13-3 too.

This year all those close losses are going to be close wins.

Go Panthers

I agree we can jump the gun on making predictions. But last year we really could hav went 13-3, at least 12-4. 7 of 9 games we lost by just 6.....or less. Plus we started off diff (with the read option) than we did the year before. It wasnt totally inconceivable that we could win 12 games last year. This year is less likely. However, I'm hoping for 10-6 or better. But thinking we would be lucky to get 10 wins. But it IS possible.

We could have won them but we didn't. Stupid coaching decisions and a lack of 2nd half adjustments are much to blame IMO. Every team in the NFL can point to a loss and say we could have won if we did such and such. The well coached teams win those games, the out-coached teams lose those games.
