Down the stretch...

18 posts in this topic

Posted

everyone keeps talking about how we finished strong "down the stretch" last season..

considering who we played, we better have won most of those games against the opponents we played:

 

DEN - smoked us.. one of only 2 games that we lost by more than 6pts (MNF vs NYG)

TB - lost in overtime in ridiculous fashion

PHI - beat a pitiful team with a ton of injuries- only won by 8pts BTW

KC - lost to the worst team in the league

ATL - a quality win in the books - check

SD - a Jeckle and Hyde team- very similar to us last year.. you can call this a quality win if you want

OAK - another team reeling at that point in the year

NO - a shoot out of a game that we eventually won.. i guess you can say a quality win too

 

so at the end of the day- our Awesome "down the stretch" run consisted of 2.5 Quality wins and a loss to the worst team in the league..

How ever you count them they dont really have any bearing on this season and what can be/should be expected of the 53 man roster that still hasn't even been settled on.

a win is a win. carolina's problem is, when all is said and done, they never have enough.

Yea but if you look at most of the games we lost where by less than a TD in last few mins of the game

good teams make their schedules look like fluffier than they really are

 

average teams make their schedules look tougher than they really are.

 

bad teams just suck.

Whose side are you on bro...

 

We finished with promise last year, especially Cam & the defense. A win is a win in the NFL no matter who you play.

We could have lost a lot more games last year.

One day we will all die.

Good reminder, but as others have said no one gives a fug who you beat, as long as you win.  Look at the Ravens regular season, hardly impressive.

wins are wins...but control/blowouts get media respect. That what everybody wants, right?
