This feels like 1996 did to me
But this time, it's REAL... '96 was a magical season for sure and the Dallas playoff game was crazy ! But it's almost been 20 years since we've had this team. We've literally, seen it all. The Up's, 96, 03, 05, 08... the down's ...98, 01, 04, 10. And now, it finally feels like we've truly arrived. That we've finally been accepted in the NFL...now I know how fast that can change without consistency, but think back in the 90s the Jaguars were always out doing us, then we went to the Super Bowl, like a middle school boy at his first dance, and since both franchises have their struggles. But the NFL and its fans treat the Jags like their shunned step child... and with a fanbase the Panthers have that is growing and getting older.. meaning people like me, in my 20s, I've grown up with this team... have had no other real team and there is a whole generation of fans like me that are getting older and able to afford going to games more often. And we're not wine-and-cheese fans. We come to get loud and to wear the Black and Blue with Pride and Respect.
With Cam, Kuechly, and the rest of the young stars on this team... this could be a very special era in this franchise's history. With the G-Man behind the helm, we will add the right pieces, I mean look at what he's done in just one season.. this franchise is on the track to success and it feels great! Couldn't be prouder 11 weeks into the season than I am right now..
