Still claims Atlanta will win the division but thinks NO can challenge them.  Calls us the Carolina Jekylls and Hydes saying if Cam can hit his stride early and the secondary holds its own we can be in the thick of things.  I thought it was an accurate preview of the Panthers.  But as it is with everything at this time of the year, it really doesn't matter what they write.

If Cam hits his stride early and the secondary holds then I'd wager we'd be more than just in the thick of things...

Hmm says linebacker may be a weak point but Josh Norman is listed as the "breakout" player.  OK sure.

 

Where they got worse: Outside linebacker.

I dont want to jump ahead of anything but I believe our defense is superior to New Orleans' and Atlanta's. On top of everything, we swept the Taints and nearly shocked the Dirty Pigeons.

Truth be told, we should have swept every damn team in the NFC South last season.

With the exception of the first TB game, we dominated every other game against our division.

Right.  And as bad as that first TB game was, we still had a great shot to win at the end.

Well the guy who wrote column actually does his homework and does the "audible" series every week where he breaks down film, so his overall analysis is credible.

 

Just like any year it looks like the division could go to anyone.

That Week 11 loss against The Bucs hurt so much. We had that game in the basket, and then our offense went on vacation and our defense gassed. Words could not describe how pissed off I was after that game.

This was obviously written before they knew we were in the semifinal for best uniform ever.



That being said, I'm still on the 6-8 win bandwagon until Rivera and Shula prove they can coach on Sunday's. Our talent is good enough to win if put in position to do so.

I was at that game with a group of friends.  It was such an unbelievable collapse I could only laugh.
