Mr. Stevonne Latrall Smith goes off for a career high 1,600 yards to move to 15th all time.

 

God, I hope. Not only for Smith and the Panthers, but because he's on my fantasy team.

8 or 9 wins, we struggle early like always(i know thats a cop out but it's in our dna now for the past 5 seasons) and have close and ugly games to start out the season.  The defense is steady throughout and offense finally gets their poo together too little, too late.  Again, so hard to argue history when it has become the norm.  I'ma go on a limb and say Buccs win division, Falcons miss playoffs but finish 2nd with 10 wins and we finish about the same as the Stains.

if we struggle early then we will probably end up with 3 or 4 wins total. our last half of the season is ridiculously hard.

Beat Seattle, then stumble in one of our next three games to open the season 3-1.  People are happy, we have our first winning record of the RR era.
 
In the next four games, win one we don't expect to and lose one we felt we should have won.  Go 2-2, and the team has shown flashes of being very good but inconsistent.
 
In our next four games, reality smacks us in the face.  Go 1-3.  Mood sours as far as RR is concerned.  Head into December with a 6-6 record.

 

So now there are two ways this all unfolds.

The team goes to New Orleans, and wins in a shootout. Inspired, they head home and beat down the Jets, and sweep the Saints the following week. In Atlanta, the game is for 10-6 and the division in a tiebreaker. Ryan is sacked 8 times and our power running game just crushes their defensive line. Win handily.

The team goes to New Orleans, and lays an egg.  Since the promising start they've gone 3-6, and whispers inside the building are saying that RR is done no matter what happens in the final three games.  They come home and the unthinkable happens--the Jets pull an upset.  The team goes flat, puts on a "who cares" performance against New Orleans, and manages to beat the Falcons anyway, giving the Saints the division.  Rivera is fired the next day.

 

 - I think that by the end of the year, Smitty will be in the slot most of the time, with Gettis and LaFell outside. 

 - Edwards contributes well enough to earn another contract (although a small one). 

 - The Offensive Line will be ok in protection, but that's mainly because of Cam's ability to move around. 

 - The running game is unimaginative and ineffective.  The offense can't score when it counts.

 - One of our Cornerbacks (not named Munnerlyn) looks like a legitimate NFL starter.  The entire secondary looks fairly serviceable

 - Hardy has more sacks than Johnson

The Panthers go 9-7 and claim a wildcard spot in the playoffs. 

 

We finish second in the division behind Atlanta, as they go 10-6.  Split series.

 

We surprise and win our wildcard round game, but lose in the game following due to our subpar o-line. 

 

Luke is a DPOY candidate. Cam has a fine year and is able to make the media eat crow.

 

Ginn has a great season for the special teams, but just an ok year as a wide receiver, where as both Gettis and Armanti contribute nicely. 

 

Stewart is placed on IR, but our stable of backs does just fine without him, with Williams leading the way.

 

We do just enough as a team for Rivera to keep his job and for our fans to not kill themselves.

And most importantly, we will see a repeat of 2006.

The role of Foster will be played by DWill and the role of DWill will be played by Barner

One RB will run into tackles and nowhere and everyone will be asking why the young kid gaining yards isn't getting more touches
