Week 2 - Bills: Win
Week 3 - Giants: Win
Week 5 - Cardinals: Win
Week 8/13 - Buccaneers: Win
Week 12 - Dolphins: Win
Week 15 - Jets: Win

Agree with all of those except the giants. It will be a tough one. They out coached us and outplayed us in every single way last year.

Every year is a new year. Our defense isn't the same it was last year. We will make it hard on Eli and their offense. I believe that their Dline is upgraded but secondary and LB are very much in question. And after losing Stevie Brown, it won't serve them any well.

Most teams seem to be struggling on offense this preseason, including the Panthers.  Since I don't believe we'll struggle once the games are for real, I don't think I'm prepared to believe that our opponents will struggle either.

I'm prepared to believe that our opponents will struggle vs. our defense.

Eli went 8 for 20 with no touchdowns in the preseason? Clearly the Giants should be concerned.

If we're not concerned with Cam, the Giants are not even sweating with Eli.

People should worry about Wilson and a 2x SB champ in Eli, but we can't worry about Cam right? Gotcha'. No need to comment back.

The entire point is not to trip over yourself reading too much into preseason quarterback performances. As fieryprophet pointed out yesterday, Tavaris Jackson (yes you read that right) leads all QB's so far in the preseason.

Yeah because he's the only quarterback who's played against backups this preseason, lol.

Geno Smith was playing against backups. How'd that go for him?

a win against seattle will be the key.  then its off to the races.  the landscape is def changing in our favor and steamrolling a win against the seachickens into a feeding frenzy on nfl teams might not be so far fetched.

The Dolphins will be tough too!

Dolphins defense also yielded 63 total yards to the Bucs in the first half (without Doug Martin) and made Freeman look worse than normal.

Tannehill also playing without his starting TE and a backup right guard was over 90 qb rating, 1 td (2 others dropped) and 150 yards in 1 half of play. Tannehill hasn't thrown a pick all preseason and is over a 100 qb rating this exhibition season without a decent run game. (Miller will be fine btw he has a 4.3 ypc average with 73 yards on 17 carries and a td this preseason)

I am excited for November 24th.....the Panthers and Dolphins have a lot of similarities.




Looking forward to it as well seeing that the Dolphins are the only NFL team that the Panthers haven't beaten in the regular season :)

Bills CB Stephon Gilmore to miss about eight weeks with a hand/wrist issue. Tough one there but hope is he only misses 5-6 games or so.
