One could argue that the offense gave the defense a lead and it's their job as a defensive team to protect that lead they didn't.


I'm not sure how many people believe 7 points will win a NFL game.

have i landed in some magical fairy turd land where points and winning don't matter?
 
we only scored seven and we lost. yay. everything is awesome.

No you landed into a discussion about a defensive struggle where turnovers and mistakes limited the offensive opportunities and make each possession critical. No one is happy with 7 points or a loss but they have perspective and an ability to see things more objectively.

Of course not but let's not act like 7 points has never won a game. My point is this team has been built around defense correct? It was a defensive battle. Their d made a play at the end and ours didn't. We get the ball back maybe we score and win 14-12 or maybe their offense comes back on the field and scores and we lose 14-19.

The defense isn't getting a pass with me. They played a great game but once again couldn't finish

I don't think we were close to 9th best, as 7 PTs simply isn't enough. But we weren't terrible, just off at crucial moments. We need to refine and improve, not panic.

The defense allowed 370 yards of offense, that will get you ranked about 21st.

 

Slow :goodjob: Exactly!

Haven't we been saying that at some point the ball will bounce our way for a few years now?  It gets old...

Cynic.

Cynic.

 

Not really.

 

A cynic is someone who despite looking at history to the contrary decides on a pessimistic stance.

 

The fact is the Panthers have had little luck over the past two season. Pointing that fact out doesn't make one a cynic.

 

Calling an apple an apple is not cynicism.

the defensive rating is right.. but when you look at the "game aspects".. the team we were playing, the score.. etc... you can see it was one of the best Defensive showings in the NFL.

I'll take a low ranked defense that allows few points over a highly ranked one that allows many points any day of the week.
