I would like to know alittle more insight of what he meant by nervous. Giddy maybe? Unfocused is what I am guessing but would need a little more info about this.

read that as nervous energy/excited/antsy...not scared. there's a difference.

 

it's excitement. it's pre-show jitters.

 

everything is clicking now and they are facing a really good team that they have a realistic chance to beat that could send them well on their way to the playoffs and really boost their confidence.

 

this game is huge...probably the biggest game they've had in years. in a lot of ways, this game is going to show their true identity. this game is going to show what they are made of. they want to be relevant...well, to an extent, this will make them that.

 

this isn't just another game. this is a defining moment. with this win comes respect...not just outwardly, but inwardly.

 

all of that isn't going to be lost on them.

 

i expect there to be some nervousness. i expect there to be a certain level of eagerness. i expect to see that in the opening moments of the game on sunday. but i also expect them to level out/channel that energy and find their groove.

 

i doubt these guys are going to be able to rest leading up to the game on sunday. i can see them being on edge the whole time. if they do win, i can see that energy continuing for the next few weeks.

This is perfect. The 9rs will read this and be like - "oh they scared, we got this, they ain't nuthin" (cause that's how they be talking and skit)

And then we punch them straight in the mouth come game time.

And then we like; just playin bitches!

Why exactly would he actually say this to media? WTF?!

 

Calculated Risk Taker Ron. Maybe hoping the players hear it and nut up.

I'm nervous in the moments leading up to every single one of my drunken brawls. Then I get punched in the mouth and the nerves go away completely and it's attack mode.

Hopefully this same sort of thing happens with the Panthers on Sunday.

Idk why they nervous. We got like 8 more games left. We do play NE next on MONDAY Night Football, National game. That's bigger than this one. I think that game is easier than this one personally, but still

I know this word is played out to the nth degree around here, but could this truly be...



...a smokescreen?

The last time this team was on edge and nervous? Before the Giants game.

I hope your right.  A blowout of epic proportions,against an establilshed team,  is just the message we  need to send to the rest of the league.  I want Godell to fine the whole damn team for being too scary for TV
