Our players shouldn't have to get cancer or have a family member die to get extracurricular support from fans. Sherman's gonna win because Seattle fans actually rally around their players, what a concept.
Charlotte in general is extremely pessimistic about sports thanks to a history of disappointment. I think with the recent rise of the Panthers and now a solid HORNETS team in play things are turning around.

Im sorry but I disagree and frankly im getting upset that people keep moving the goal posts. A few weeks ago all we heard was "This game against the 9ers is huge, if we go into San Fran and beat the NFC champs coming off a bye, it will push us into elite status." Well we ended up beating them, then what happened? "This game against the Pats is by far the biggest game of Cam and Rivera's career, a win against Tom Brady in prime time will cement our elite status." Now people are saying we need to beat the Saints to show we are for real? I agree this game is very important, but we are past the point of wondering if we are contenders are not. We beat BOTH San Fran AND New England back to back, if we lose to the Saints, it doesnt mean we are not an elite team. It will simply just mean we are a elite team that lost a game. Poo happens.
The win against the Patriots did exactly that. "Elite teams" are a dime a dozen thought. Sunday night is bigger than that.
