Happy Panther

Panthers still 35% to make the playoffs

116 posts in this topic

I think both NY and KC are better than they are given credit for. If Eli gets his INTs under control, which he will the Giants are going to be fine.

KC is under the radar but they have looked decent, and clearly not as bad as last year.

If you think about it, we almost beat a team that destroyed SF the next week and almost beat a team that almost be NE. And heck we are favored against NYG

 

So it makes sense that the simulation would view our average success on similar plays to the NFL as favorable so far in the year.

 

It doesn't have a coach factor though.

This is pretty interesting. I think we can still make the playoffs. It's not like we are getting bullied. We haven't been playing all that great but we could easily by 2-0 minus a few mistakes. I'm curious to see how we fare against the giants. I am going to go out on a limb and say we will end the season at 10-6. :)

just over 12% actually.

 

. The 12%+ is merely a historical average 

This.

 

Most people don't realize this, they just sound like parrots. If I had a dollar for every time the last two weeks I heard a Panther fan state the 12%, I'd have like 45 dollars.

 

I know being optimistic is frowned upon here, but I think we have better odds than 12%. There are so many variables not accounted for, we are usually a stronger team the second half of the season, which is actually when we play every division game. The Falcons, who have one of the worst O-lines I've seen for years (yes, worse than ours), the Saints, who aside from Drew Brees, don't look like they have it all together either, and the Bucs (enough said).

 

I truly think we sweep our division and make the playoffs. Haters welcome.
