Gantt apparently has an axe to grind. Just for fun, I read PFT articles without looking at the writer of the article. I can always guess when it's Gantt because he is either taking an unnecessary cheap shot at the Panthers or has some comment at the end that is similar to a cheesy joke that he thinks is hilarious when in reality crickets are chirping.
What everyone has failed to enter in to the equation is the fact this season is different concerning the game following the bye. In both seasons (2011,2012) we have lost the game before the bye week. This season we handily won the game before the bye. I would have to believe the energy being either negative or positive has to carry over to the bye week and sequentially to the game after the bye.
I do not know if it is denial or whatever, but Saints fans are saying they have much better talent on the roster at OLB. Several fans stated he wasn't making the switch well and couldn't keep up with the speed.
That Week 11 loss against The Bucs hurt so much. We had that game in the basket, and then our offense went on vacation and our defense gassed. Words could not describe how pissed off I was after that game.
I was at that game as well sitting in the endzone about 6 rows back. There was a Falcons fan of which I believed to be a player's significant other. Anyway, she was screaming the entire first quarter and was extremely annoying. When we started spanking the Buc's ass, she shut up. But then, the Panthers blow the game and she is right back at it more obnoxious than ever. Man I really hate the walk of shame after a home loss.
As for our record this year, every time I look at the schedule, I see 10-6 written all over it.
