Last Year 3 Games Into The Season........

The Panthers were 1-2 with their only victory against a Head Coach-less New Orleans Saint team in disarray.

 

Trailing a 3-0 Atlanta Falcon team and tied with the Bucs for 2nd place already 2 games back.

 

This year the Panthers are again 1-2 with their only victory against a Giant team on the decline and in disarray.

 

Again tied in 2nd place 2 games back this year to the 3-0 Saints.

 

What does Ron Rivera and the Panthers do this year to avoid quickly falling out of contention for the NFC South Crown or a Wild Card spot as they did last year?

 

What's the difference this year to last?

The next few games may actually be a fairly favorable stretch.  We could actually be decently on the positive side by mid year.

 

The last half of the season is what will tell the story.

The only reason the Giants are in disarray is because they are losing. It's not the same issue as the Saints had last year. They are really unfortunate to go to Dalles, then play Denver, and then play us. That's a tough draw. Quit searching for reasons to calm your own excitement and bask in the glory of a shutout.

The last shutout was in 2008, didn't we make the playoffs that year? Weren't the chiefs in disarray that year? When's the last time Dwill was averaging 100 yards per game?

We won that game by 8 points. We won this one by 38.

First difference that comes to mind is our D.

Next is the fact that I still do not believe the Saints are as good as their record would indicate. That D will be tested and pressure always frustrates Bree's when he can't step up in the pocket.

The giants are better than they look its just an odd set of circumstances why they look so poor. They really deflated after we went up 17-0 and knew we got the ball after the half.

This is the cats team I was looking for. Seatle was a beast and we hung tough. Buffalo was a let down "trap game" and NY was ths team finally understanding what it takes to be successful.

Prepare your bodies boys, this s abut to get good.

Like last year? And the year before. The beginning of the year will tell the story. This team has to worry Ron will be fired to win, so I hope the media and us fines keep up the fire Rivera mantra.

It's playoffs or busy for Ron so that's what will tell the story of this season. For us there is no favorable stretch. We can beat anyone, we can lose to anyone.

To build on your statement of going up 17. That is 3 games where we have scored right before the half. We have a great 2-4 minute offense.

The difference is...this D has the chance to be legendary, last year we were playing teacher's pet in a position he couldn't play anymore and Fua was a starter.  That's your difference.

the win against the saints last year was ok, but nowhere near the dominant performance we saw today, but one game is just one game. we're still battling futility.

 

what needs to change is that foot of rivera's needs to stay on that gas pedal and avoid tapping the brake pedal and that pink slip needs to be right there in his rearview mirror. if he slows up, he's done.

Only reason the giants appear in disarray is because our dline can get to immobile eli unlike last year. Welcome to the new NFL where your QB may need to be mobile to at least get a chance to throw away the football and not lose yardage.
