By some magic that Panthers have gotten themselves to a "in the mix' 3-3. This is mostly a good thing. That said I fear we have missed our chance at finishing the year with a winning record. The Buffalo Loss and the Zona loss would have given us a very nice cushion as we head into the meat of our schedule.  Lets look ahead and prognosticate what "May" become.

 

 

  • @Bucs
  • Falcons
  • @Niners
  • Patriots
  • @Dolphins
  • Bucs
  • @Saints
  • Jets
  • Saints
  • @Falcons

 

Looking at that, the fan in me wants to to say oh we can get 10-6 if we steal a few. I ask you where do we "steal" a win?

 

 

@Bucs - W We honestly should completely destroy the Buc's Thursday night. Martin isn't playing, Glennon is horrible. If they score we should demand a player commit seppuku to atone for the dishonor.

 

Falcons - W  If Julio was not on IR I would likely give this one to the Falgoons. Steven Jackson may be back by this game, but it was reported he had a setback. The deciding factor will be our pass rush. The Falcons OLine could be worse than ours. Byron Bell might be better than their RT.  It will be close and I will be at this game which gives the Falcons an advantage, but it's a get away weekend for me and the wife and Kurb loves sexy time so fug yall I'm going to Charlotte.

 

@-Niners- I expect a sober knocker early and they pull away late. I'm not worried about their run game, I'm worried about their Defense beating our Offense in the ground.

 

Patriots, MNF- Who stops Gronk?  Brady is Brady and it's MNF. Do we really think Rivera and Co can play chess with BilliCheat?

 

@Dolphins. -50/50 L?  Panthers have never won in Miami. True story. This is a toss up game tho. 

 

Bucs- We do Tampa a favor and rid them of Schiano.

 

@Saints - L  Saints are almost unbeatable in the Dome.

 

Jets - 50/50 L? The other toss up. Jet's defense is dominant. I don't trust out O-Line to stop their front 7 in any fashion. That said, I could see this turning into another Rams like game. Which (amazingly enough) seems to help this team.

 

Saints ? The Saints could very well have the NFC locked up at this point. If they are sitting people we can steal a win. If not they will likely beat us. Bree's is going to feast on our secondary.

 

@ Falcons Honestly, no matter what our record at this point I think we completely punk the Falcons at home. Cam has yet to win there, we have had two wins stolen, and the Falcons are about 2 losses away from a complete meltdown.

 

So looking at all this. Anywhere from 7-9 to 10-6 is within reason. 

 

 

What say you huddle?

Feels good to be at .500 but I think ultimately the Buffalo and AZ losses will haunt us.

All we need to do is sweep NO and split TB and ATL.   Just win the division.

i wouldn't be surprised if we upset the niners and patriots at this point.

 

This was a big time win not just because of the record but for setting the tone for the rest of the season. These guys are out for blood. They are tired of being poo on in the media and by fans.

 

Or maybe that is just how i feel lol

I can make a case for beating the Pats. 9ers will be quite the battle.

I think we can sweep Tampa and Atl.

If we plan to contend for a playoff spot....49er game is HUGE.

Outside of NO at home.... The rest I consider a coin flip

If I put my troll hat on.  We still haven't beat a winning team though either.

Agreed...but beating bad NFL teams by 15+ is impressive

Not to be a dick, but I'm conditioned to say thats just how you feel as a fan.  

 

 

By thinking that you are saying :

"Mike Shula's offense can score 25+ points a game on any defense"

 

"The Panthers secondary can contain any WR corps + QB combo"

 

"The Panthers coaching staff can match wits with any other NFL staff"

 

and a few more about our WR's, QB, and on and on.

 

I just can't believe that strong anymore.....I've been hurt to many times! :D

I tend to agree.  I'm afraid we are going to seesaw our way through the season.

 

Blow out bad team, lose in tragedy to good team.
