our overall performance is undershadowed by obscenely awful situational football that has us 2-3 instead of 4-1. i'd say so, yes.

I don't know if you can call us underrated, considering how inconsistent we are.

We are right were we should be, everybody else is overrated.

Well, considering the fact that we should be* undefeated like the Chiefs and Broncos... I'd like to say that we are under rated... But as the HOF coach Bill Parcells says "You are what your record says you are" I'm gonna say that we're not under rated.

Do we have the talent to have a better record? Absolutely!

Do we live up to what we should be? Up to this point no.

We are what our record says we are, no matter how much better we think* this team is.

Hell, we haven't been above .500 in years... Let's get to .500 first and then we'll talk

I don't think we're underrated.

I think we're legitimately just not that good.

Maybe after another offseason of rebuilding (and a new head coach) we'll be better.

Right now? No :(

That's really a tough question to answer objectively.

 

I watch as many NFL games as I can, regardless of who's playing with the Panthers taking priority obviously.

 

But even doing that I don't know any team like I know the panthers, it would really have to be a full time job to say who's the best, underrated or any doing any other kind ranking. 

 

But back to the subject at hand. I think we have enough talent to be a playoff team and can make some noise if we get in. Our biggest problem has been Rivera. That's not to say we are on the level of Denver, New Orleans, NE, K.C or Seattle because were def. not but we aren't too terribly far behind on paper.

In short, the number crunchers love us and the "gut feeling" sportswriters hate us.

 

golden mean, anyone?

    • You do realize no one wanted RyanCare/ObamaCare Lite to pass, right? If anything, the media and democrats has made themselves absolute fools lately. STILL no evidence Trump colluded with Russia whatsoever, which is quite the funny irony in this whole conspiracy. Trump inherited a mess. Hard to fix this mess when you got crybaby globalists and dems everywhere.    
    • I hate this DG analogy so much.  It only makes sense in the context of an efficient market where teams are rational, have perfect information, and scouts are always right about players.  But we have ample evidence that is not the case.  Sometimes, talented players just don't work out.  Injuries derail careers.  Teams make oddball picks.  Sometimes, you are just wrong about a player (see Ealy, Kony). I like him a lot, but DG's habit of always trading up / never trading down may ultimately be his downfall in CAR.  It results in a lack of depth across the roster and it makes your roster very vulnerable to i) injuries (see 2015 vs. 2016) and ii) missing on evals.  If we missed on Funchess (jury still out), that hurts - but missing on Funchess when you traded multiple picks to get him compounds the issue. Trading up and trading down are both valid strategies - but I'd suggest balancing the two strategies would improve your chances of long-term success.
    • He is worth #8 pick. I'd like to see him next to Newton on the field.
