On the flip side of this I hope this was a humbling experience for some fans too. So many people around here have been acting like we are the best team in the NFL and if all the experts don't pick us we are being disrespected.
I hate Darin Gnant but he said it best a couple of weeks ago, this team has such a thin margin of error. We can't go out there and play like New England and just win it in the last 30 secs. We have to play sound, physical mistake free football.
Our secondary is average, the right side of the line is below average, and the receiving core is average. In a few years we can fix those issues which is part of the plan but for right now we have to find a way to mask our weaknesses. Right now its through running the ball, short high percentage passes, time consuming drives, and getting after the quarterback. We didn't do any of that last night.
Hopefully our fan base gets some perspective and begins to understand that we have a great team here in charlotte, ONE THAT WE SHOULD CHEER ON AT ALL TIMES, but they aren't perfect and maybe we shouldn't act that way, or expect it.
