If we beat the Seahawks week one, will the talking heads around the NFL jump on the Panthers nuts or continue to overlook us?

Obviously you take the opinions of idiots like Steven A., Skip Bayless, and Colin Cowherd with a grain of salt, but with all those guys talking so highly about Seattle, if we beat them week 1, will people be talking about the fact that the Panthers WON or will they talk more about Seattle LOSING?

We will be overlooked, it will be more about the Hawks coming out soft and overlooking us because they got the 49ers WK 2.

Obviously Seattle losing.

 

Whenever bad teams drop a top team, they don't talk about how good the bad team is.

seattle losing would be the biggest story, but it won't be much. excuses will be given.

 

people won't pay attention to the panthers until they are have at least 3 more wins than losses.

 

no one has any reason to pay attention to the panthers until they have won several more games than they've lost. winning one game against any team won't matter. winning several early instead of losing several will.

We'll have to beat San Fran, Seattle, and New England to be viewed as legit contenders in ESPN's and NFL Network's eyes. The odds of us beating those three squads are slim however.

They will talk about how Seattle lost the game and mention how they lost their first game last year

The headlines will read; Are the Seahawks still contenders without harvin and Irvin?
While the article will be about how the Seahawks don't look as strong as last year. If we can go into our bye week undefeated, maybe a few of them will mention us.

If we beat Seattle the only way they talk about the Panthers is if we really beat them by a lot and were in complete control of the game. That is the only way they will talk about us on both network, well check that if Cam has a bad game they will talk about us on both networks and never people hear the end of it.

First time is happenstance, second time is a coincidence,

third time is a trend.

Always remember this.

Do we really care what the talking heads say? I for one don't give a damn as long as we win.

No, not really. It would however be f*cking nice to turn on ESPN or NFLN and not have to hear about the same 5 teams and the same sh*t, day after day, week after week.

I agree it's been a long time since the team has started off with a winning record.
