Personally I'm no more or less worried about the Panthers than I have been during our winning streak. We have a few really big holes left in our team, which is to be expected because you can't fix as many holes as we had last year in one season. The Saints are one of the best equipped teams in the league to exploit them and we played them in their house after they got obliterated the week before. When it comes down to it we still won 8 straight including some games noone gave us even a chance to win. For the most part we beat the teams we were supposed to beat pretty badly during those weeks too. That's an accomplishment that shows we are still a very good, dangerous team to play. This week's game doesn't change anything about my opinion of our team.
Honestly I think a lot of us already forgot what we came from in the immediate past. If you'd have told me before the season we'd be 9-4 with a pretty solid shot at 12-4 and a VERY good shot at 11-5 to end the season I'd have called you insane yet here we are...even with the holes we still have to plug. I'll take it.
