  1. You're making a fool of yourself. The Panthers are one of the most profitable teams in the league.

    Carolina Huddle Pick’em - Week 7

    Maybe @rayzor can help?
  3. Combined record of teams the Eagles have won against: 4-14 Combined record for teams the Eagles have lost against: 8-8-1 Panthers should be angry after getting hit in the mouth. Eagles will be at home and trying to claw out if mediocrity. I like the Panthers to win 31-28.

    Let's make a loose comparison

    Thanks for your outstanding addition to internet forum discussion
  6. I see alot of similarities between some games we've played this season, and games we played in our last two successful seasons. Just curious for your thoughts. 1) Our season opener this season was reminiscent of the Jacksonville opener in 2015 and the Buffalo home opener last year. An early-season, low-scoring affair that we controlled for most of the game. 2) The week 2 loss to Atlanta this year reminded me of the loss to Atlanta in 2015, and the loss to Philadelphia last year. A game where the Panthers didn't quite come prepared and made a few miatakes but kept it close enough and fought hard enough to really find alot of hope after the loss. 3) The Cincinnati game is similar to the (hot as hell) home opener against Houston in 2015, and the late-season win against Minnesota last year. These three were games where the Panthers battled hard against a quality opponent, playing good football and defending a lead at the end to earn the win. 4) Our heart-stopper against the Giants this season reminded me alot of the OT win over the Colts in 2015 and the Detroit game last year. Games where the Panthers got out to a 2-possession lead and squandered it, only to gut out the win. 5) and the Washington game reminds me of the Chicago game last year, and Super Bowl 50. Games where the Panthers just could not get out of their own way. Embarrassing losses that didn't define the character of the team shown by it's record. I wrote this thread for that last point, though I hope the others spark some discussion too. My point in writing all this is that after an exercise in the 24-hour rule, I'm confident this loss doesn't define our team. Did the Chicago game define our season last year? No. As heartbreaking as Super Bowl 50 was, did it define our season? No. 2015 is still the best season we've ever had. Thankfully, the team has time to rebound from this embarrassment. We have to do it against a team that is at home and is in a surprisingly desperate position. But we can hope in the fact that the teams the Eagles have beat have a combined record of 4-14. The record of teams they've lost to? 8-8-1. Exactly .500. The Eagles aren't a top team in this league so far this season. They arent to be underestimated, much like Washington, but they are vulnerable. If the Panthers get back to what they did in the Cincinnati game, they will win and perhaps win comfortably, even in Philadelphia. Like Zod said, everything is still in front of us, including the division crown. Until proven otherwise, I believe this team will turn things around and win 11-12 games. #KeepPounding Panther fans

    Carolina Huddle Pick’em - Week 7

    UP’s Picks: DEN @ AZ: DEN TEN @ LAC: LAC NE @ CHI: NE BUF @ IND: IND HOU @ JAX: JAX DET @ MIA: MIA MIN @ NYJ: MIN CAR @ PHI: CAR CLE @ TB: CLE NO @ BAL: BAL DAL @ WAS: WAS LAR @ SF: LAR CIN @ KC: KC NYG @ ATL: ATL, 75 total points
  9. Update on the result of last week’s rule change: We added 2 new contestants, gained 2 back, and 3 Huddlers who missed their picks completely this week are still alive, though they all took a serious hit in the season standings. I will only allow ONE missed week per contestant. Obviously, missing a week will really hurt your chances. Likewise, making sure you get your picks in BEFORE kickoff of the first game of the week will be the best way to put yourself in contention for the prize at the end of the season. Picks made before 1:00pm on Sundays will be accepted, though any picks submitted after the fact for games played before that time will NOT count. Hopefully this is the last bit of housekeeping we need to do lol SCOREBOARD: WEEKLY WINNER: @gtanaka 12/15 (+1), .800, MNF guess: 50pts (Actual: 63) T-2) @Kevin Greene 12/15, .800, MNF guess: 47 T-2) @Raleigh PF 12/15, .800, MNF guess: 48 T-3) @FakePlasticTrees 11/15, .733 T-3) @DudeNamedJeremy 11/15, .733 T-3) @Cracka McNasty 11/15, .733 T-3) @X-Clown on 1 11/15, .733 T-3) @kungfoodude 11/15, .733 T-4) @panther4life 10/15, .667 T-4) @grimesgoat 10/15, .667 T-4) @mbarbour21 10/15, .667 T-4) @Chosen Newton 10/15, .667 T-4) @yayfootball 10/15, .667 T-4) @Liminy 10/15, .667 T-4) @MHS831 10/15, .667 T-5) @Kuhndog94 9/15, .600 T-5) @bigdavis 9/15, .600 T-5) @Boxhead85 9/15, .600 T-5) @Datawire 9/15, .600 T-5) @Panthers8969 9/15, .600 T-5) @Wyank 9/15, .600 T-6) @L-TownCat 8/15, .533 T-6) UpstatePanther 8/15, .533 T-6) @ChibCU 8/15, .533 T-6) @XOBlackxJokerOX 8/15, .533 T-6) @bababoey 8/15, .533 T-6) @Zaximus 8/15, .533 T-6) @maddog1945 8/15, .533 T-7) @PntherPryd 7/15, .467 T-7) @Khyber53 7/15, .467 T-7) @luke nukem 7/15, .467 T-7) @Bronn 7/15, .467 T-8) @PantherNation123 6/15, .400 T-8) @RumHam 6/15, .400 T-8) @KBRed 6/15, .400 T-9) @CRA @Saca312 @Moorgan No Picks.

Lol 2) Other upsets were Dallas over Jacksonville, Pittsburgh over Cincinnati, and Miami over Chicago 3) Atlanta, Houston, Seattle, Minnesota, LA Rams, and Green Bay were this week’s locks. 4) there were NO unanimous picks this week 5) teams coming off a bye this week: Detroit and New Orleans Alrighty lemme know via DM if you guys have any questions or comments! Good luck this week!

    Uniform for Sunday ... White On Black

    BLUE ON BLACK dammit... White on black is so stupid
  11. I get what you're saying but we don't need to peak until January. A slow climb until then is fine with me. Obviously we need to do whatever it takes to win, but do I expect our best football right now? No. I hope we play well enough to get into the dance and maybe take back the division, and end up playing our best football right as the playoffs start.

    Lighten Up....

    This cannot be overstated The only exception was our 15-1 year ill take another one of those We may be the cream of the crop in the NFC/NFCSouth. The Saints have yet to play the toughest part of their schedule. Any or all of their next 6 opponents could kick their teeth in. Thus far they've played the Bucs (and lost), the Browns (and almost lost), the Falcons (and almost lost), the Giants and the Redskins. All of those teams are scrappy, but they all aren't considered to be top contenders this year. Granted, one of the teams that the Saints beat has beat the Panthers, another one almost beat us. But that should show us how evenly matched we are with the Saints. We will split with them this year, and it wouldn't surprise me (though I'll be enraged if it comes to pass this way) that the Saints surprise us at home to open our series. But if that happens, I can almost guarantee we are coming for blood in week 17 and will win. It may be a two horse race, but I think the black and blue horse will outrun the black and gold one, even in the next 6 weeks. Not to mention they have to face us in Carolina, the Steelers in Pittsburgh, and us in New Orleans to close their season. That's absolutely brutal. We play the Falcons in a contest that will probably see them demoralized and us out for blood for the Week 2 loss. I'm tired af and rambling so I'll quit. Long story short, fug the Saints and #KeepfugingPounding
