Dissagree that we should be behind NE....but the rest are OK by me.

 

Yeah, not sure how we can be behind NE after beating them?

Personally I think we win Sunday.  But, you will see how little respect we actually have if we do lose. 



Really cannot argue that. I truly think though that folks really respect our Defense. The only thing holding us back, in the media that is, is our Offense. They do see an efficient Offense, and a team that can move the ball. I just feel that because those splash plays are down this year, they think our Offense is somehow not that good.

Folks know we are a very good team. The biggest question is that as young as we are, can we keep this thing going. Some are waiting for us to fold. Most others see us as legitimate.

Rankings are for fans. They spawn debate. Which, IMO, is a good thing.

RANK

CAR.png

9-3 PANTHERS

Look out for Carolina, everybody. The Panthers did what good teams are supposed to do: take care of lesser teams at home. Beating the Bucs by three touchdowns certainly qualifies. The Panthers' defense is going to make them a tough out. I don't care if the opposition is Seattle, New Orleans or West Canaan, Carolina is going to represent a formidable challenge, because it doesn't rely on a high-risk, 60-throws-per-game offense to win. Oh, and before we go -- nice fourth-and-goal call, Coach. #RiverboatRon




oh and check this out

 

 

RANK

SEA.png

11-1 SEAHAWKS

 

What a statement game for the Seahawks and Pete Carroll. David Lee Roth circa 1982 in all of his spastic glory couldn't compete with the Seattle head coach. Telling you right now, the only team that would have a chance to beat Carroll's squad in Seattle is Carolina -- and even that might be a stretch.

I don't know that our OL is good enough to take down SEA in SEA right now... But it's good to get the respect we deserve.

Lmao!


Yupperz. I have been on this train since late last year. And even I don't see us as the "Best" team in the league. Maybe next year, with a couple of the right upgrades. Just not right now. We are close for sure. Just not quite there yet.

We are capable of playing with anyone, that is for sure. The only thing I see against us, is our playoff inexperience.

We still can take it all this year. But it is the future that excites me the most. We are just getting started up in here.

This Week's Rank: 5

Last Week's Rank: 5

Differential: 0

The Carolina Panthers have won eight straight games, and in the process they secured a winning season for the first time since 2008. Thanks to an MVP-like season from quarterback Cam Newton and an aggressive defense, the Panthers look like a threat to make a run as a wild-card team.

The Panthers' ability has been tested with a difficult schedule so far this season, but they continue to answer their doubters with wins. Beating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers isn't a season-defining victory, but it does show that the Panthers can win trap games. That's not something this team could have done last season, but the maturation of Cam Newton and the bravado of head coach Ron Rivera is paying off.

After thinking this over for a few moments. I have to put this right up there with playoff inexperience as the only things that could derail this train.

Also the main reasons I truly believe we are at least a year away from the ultimate prize.

Not to say we cannot do it this year, cuz we most certainly can, but I think our youth is working against us.

In hindsight it is really great that the refs allowed that one PI call against Keuchly.  Ironic as hell considering what happened later.  If they didn't make that call, Rivera might not have changed anything and we would have gone down the same path this year. 

 

 

I don't think we are lucky. We are winning now because Rivera plays to win and not to lose. We were 2-14 in one score games because of Rivera. If he coached like this last year we would be 9-7 or 10-6 at a minimum.

Our record this year is an indication of a team that has made improvements and a coach that has made adjustments to his philosophy.
We are what we are. The Buffalo game gave Ron and the team the adversity needed to dig deep and change

that seems to be what happened in our situation..  we as fans are lucky because that doesn't happen all too often and when it does it's usually short lived.

 

typically the Bills game is more often than not a sign of things to come...
