Same old Panthers will resurface this week.  Anyone else expecting to lose against Arizona?  My wallet says yes.

Agreed with Yahoo. 

 

Beat ARI, while looking more like the team that beat the Giants, and it's potentially time to get excited.

 

Lose...and to hell with Ron Rivera.

its funny how our schedule went from toughest in the league to looking pretty tame.

 

that said, we are the Panthers so playing down to competition is par for the course.

I think it is very possible. For some reason we pencil them in as a "should win". AZ is thinking the same thing.

We are a "should win" game for every team left on our schedule.

Well, not if we prove to be good. If we do....then for example the Jets couldn't think of us as a should win

i need to see these things happen for me to feel good about rivera.

1) beat the teams that we should beat. last year losing to the chiefs and getting swept by the bucs were inexcusable. beating the chargers and the raiders last year were good, but beating the bucs and the chiefs would have given us a winning season. we didn't because we lost games against teams that were worse than us. we should have beaten the bills. that was inexcusable, but we beat another team that we should have beaten in the giants. we have four teams coming up that we should beat. if we can do that...yeah, i'm feeling fairly well about rivera.

2) win the close games. enough said. we win in blowouts, but if it's within 10-14 points in the 4th we don't do well. we need to put those games away. i just haven't seen us being able to do that. i can see the games against the falcons(x2), 49ers, and dolphins as being close games being decided in the 4th. we can and should put those games away.

3) beat the better teams. seattle is a better team and we almost beat them. looking at the schedule, there's only two teams i would consider being "better" and that's the saints and the pats. we know we can beat the saints. we also know that we can get spanked by them....esp. when they've got payton running the show. we can't afford to get swept by them. i can't see us sweeping them. we have to at least split with them to have any amount of respectablility. as far as the pats are concerned...they just own us. sure, the series between us is 2-3 in favor ot the pats, but one of those times cam in '95 (pre-brady/belichick) so i don't know that it counts. patriots aren't pretty this year, but they are the better coached and better prepared team constantly. we need to win that game.

of course there's the whole pull off a winning season and then do it again the next year and get us to the playoffs thing that i need to see as well, but for right now i need to see him pull this off.

i think the way we do it is none of this playing it safe crap. it just doesn't work for us. we need to go hard all game, never letting off the gas...even with a 10 point lead and only 2 minutes on the clock...we can't ever let up. i just need to see that fire from start to finish that i saw against the giants and i need to see it every week.



In other words, just win?

Well, I guess it depends on if we are viewing both teams under full strength.

Full strength I think there D is better and offense around the QB.

If you take into account who is on the field that may make me change.

yeah, i was going with current strength and what we're likely to face when we play, but even on defense i think it may be a push between our front sevens when full strength.

Gotta disagree with it being a bad time for our bye. We were pretty banged up and should still carry our momentum to a very bad Arizona team while being well rested.

Panthers always seem to struggle with easy schedules.

Since 2008 the Panthers have struggled against any schedule.

Sorry guys. The phone app freaked out. Didn't mean to post the same thing multiple times.
