NYT: Reason for Optimism as Panthers Shed Cautious Ways

27 posts in this topic

But there is reason to be optimistic about the Panthers. Carolina has outscored its opponents by 41 points this season, the most by a 2-3 team since 1921. There has been a strong relationship between points differential and the future performance of 2-3 teams. Of all the 2-3 teams from 1990 to 2012, 11 have outscored opponents by 20 or more points, with an average points differential of 28.5. Over the rest of the season, those 11 teams won 64.9 percent of their games.

Still some semblance of hope for the season...

I'm happy that Ron has finally grown a pair, but he's still done nothing to disprove that he can't win close games, unfortunately.

If we win all our games by 25 points, no one will care.

Isn't it sad when other media market writers produce better, more insightful panthers material than our own beat writers?

Yeah, that's not happening. So let's stop with the unrealistic hypotheticals.

So I'm curious, what's to stop one of us like Mr Scot, fug, PhillyB, any of us who've proven we can write worth a damn, and trying to infiltrate the Disturber from the inside?  We trolled the NFL's website this summer, getting a Huddler hired as a beat reporter may just be the best thing any fanbase has ever done.

 

I nominate SCP...Saints, Foreskins, Cowfagos and *Stealer games would become even more legendary.
