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.

    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.  
    • Assholes should've never taken it away in the first place.  Me and a couple buddies had a hookup and were all hyped up and planned out going to it... then the NBA had to get all political and take it out on the city of Charlotte and the fans -- which made no fuging sense.  Seriously doubt we'll even get the chance to go again.
    • 6'6" 255.  He'll definitely have some good mentors with JP, CJ and the rest of the D-Line crew. 255 he'll need to put some weight on don't you think?
