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?

    • So we have already picked up Kelvin's fifth year option.  If I gaze into my crystal ball this is what I see happening. This upcoming season (year four) for Kelvin, will be a somewhat of a disappointment, same for Funchess. However, our offense will benefit from the varied and viable options we have provided Cam.  Panthers win Superbowl beating the Patriots and Olsen retires.  Panthers draft a tight end with pick 32.  Kelvin will swear in the offseason that he's taking things seriously as they will need him to be a leader with Olsen retiring., hint: he will because that oh so coveted second contract is looming and Kelvin is no spring chicken (already 26).  Year 5 comes. Kelvin has worked himself into shape and looks amazing. Basically everything we've always wanted from him. However, Funchess has a great season as well, remember Funchess is only (22) right now. He probably came out a year too early and it historically takes WRs a couple years to hit their stride.  Big time decision will come down to Gettleman and co. and I ultimately think we move on from Benjamin where he goes on to sign with the Los Angeles Rams. 
    • Competition makes the most of everyone. Gano had an off year and might be spurred on by the challenge. This guy seems like a good kid, but only one or two new kickers make it into the league each year... it's a hard gig to land.
