I am glad most of the folks on here weren't controlling the draft or we wouldn't have drafted Kuechly either. Some of us were on the bandwagon immediately especially since we knew that Beason was largely done. But many wanted Richardson or Barron or someone else.

The only thing that really matters is the guaranteed amount. That isn't that much more than rookies were getting for being the number 1 pick I every year before Cam was drafted. We got the benefit of seeing how he turned out first and then got to decide what he is worth. He has shown that he is the real deal and deserves to get paid a ton. We can make enough unguaranteed and on the back end to protect us in the event he ends up like Jake with a career ending injury.

Historically the Panthers have not handled success well.

They have done better when caste as the underdog.

This game will be another data point helping determine whether the team is transitioning from an also ran to perennial favorite.

Given we have won 15 out of our last 16 games, I would suggest we are handling success pretty well. We can't help if the village idiots haven't figured it out yet. I don't think we go into games thinking we are underdogs. Players prepare all week and have a gameplan they practiced all week. They go into the game thinking they are going to win and are the favorite in their mind. Being cast as an underdog just makes it even more satisfying when they actually do win. Or like the A team always said, they love when a plan comes together.
