I actually disagree. Carolina can win this game but it still may not tell us anything about the team. Not sure hope would be restored from winning a game everyone expects them to win. However, losing this game will destroy hope in pantherland.
Yeah I agree with no the no excuses part and although I'd take a W anyway they can get it, to really make me think these guys are for real they need to convincingly beat buffalo today.
The true test would be next week against NY as long as they win today.
