Confidence Level for the 2015 Season

Recommended Posts

It's not how confident I am at this point in the season, it's how comfortable Jeremy is that controls how I feel about the preseason Panthers. He is the only person I know who has his eyes on the Panthers

Panthers have the personnel to be Top 5 Team in the NFL!

 

I'm not worried about defense, should be top 7 or better.Special Teams will be in the middle of the pack just by having better player. Now Offense can be top 10 if these 5 things happen 

 

~ If Oher can be an below average or average LT and Remmers & Williams average RT (not worried about Kalil, Nowell, & Turner)

 

~ *JStew & Core offense players can stay healthy [*Big IF] 

 

~ Run a 2 TE Set 50% time (Olsen, Dickson, *Funchess, & Benjamin all over 6'4 235lb) [*Funchess is a decent #2 & plays closer to his pro day speed]

 

~ Run the No Huddle 60% time (That mean Cam is takin control of the offense)

 

~ If Cam can get back to being 2014 1st 5 games Cam but HEALTHY

 

"But will Rivera and Shula run this type of Offense?"

Honestly though, the personal is in place...its Ron Riveria and Co that I am "worried" about

I  think we win 10 games and all things being equal we make the playoffs.

There may be some disappointed people in this thread come January.

I really can't believe people are still ripping Rivera.

Everything really depends on if we can stay healthy, if we can pressure the qb on a consistent basis, if we can return to our dominant running game and if Ron has finally learned how to manage the clock.

Me: "The Panthers are going to be really good this year."

Friend: "Don't you say that every year?"

Me: "...... um... but they are going to be really good THIS year...."

It seems like this is the common consensus among Huddlers:

  • The Panthers will have a top 5 defense
  • The Panthers will have a much better offense, top 15ish
  • The Panthers will have a much improved special teams unit
  • The Panthers will win the NFC South
I personally think this is the most confident I have ever been at this point in the offseason. I was way too confident last year. Going into the season, and even after the first two games, I was thinking we couldn't be stopped. After several blowouts, I saw the obvious holes in the O-line, secondary(as it was then), and WR core.

How does your confidence going into this season compare with past seasons? Are we being homers, or do we really know that the Panthers are going to light it up in 2015?

Confidence level: 100%

Why not? What are people afraid? That they're expectations will be crushed and they'll need psychiatric treatment for depression?

Be a goddam fan and hope/wish/desire for the best!

Wait... I forgot... some "fans" prefer to be "real". And then when success does occur, they grab on to that caboose.

Pretty high id say, think we've improved across the board. Think we'll win the south, then who knows what happens once you get into the playoffs

The area I'm most confident in: Our D sustains the late season form or better.  Ron/McD got the wildcard/playmaker on defense they've wanted so badly.  Also, the secondary has come a LONG way since the beginning of last season when many were expecting to start Melvin White and Josh Thomas initially (lol).  Now?  Josh-Bene-Tillman-Teddy-Peters-etc...so much better from a confidence standpoint.    

 

 

The offense will produce.  We were fine with getting the ball into the redzone but our tendencies with Shula are to have random, ill-timed cold streaks and punching it in the endzone outside of a Cam run within the 5yl.  We have made measures to assure success in a road grader in Williams, a fresh healthy non-fumbling RB, and another monster of a wideout.  

 

The offense is FINALLY more built for the offense the coaches have been trying to run.  Chain movers that control the tempo of the game.  When things need to heat up though, we've now got enough ammunition to do so.

I'm always hopeful but never confident. The Panthers have hurt me too many times.

I'm pretty confident however there are a lot of IFS for this team. If Oher can step in and be a solid LT, j stew can manage to stay healthy for the whole season, and Funchess produces like were all expecting him to I don't see why we can't win at least 12 games. Worst case scenario I see us going 9-7 or 10-6. Its time guys, we're gonna be real.

    • I can't get behind that 100%, I wish Cam was here as much as anyone, but in MIN his first two years they weren't really the stock of the league at receiver, Cordarell Patterson, Thielien (before he made a name for himself in 2017), Charles Johsnon, and , Jrariyus Wright,  rookie Diggs, and old Greg Jennings & Mike Wallace. They also ran a WCO in the passing game if memory serves. Not to mention that was an Adrian Peterson HEAVY offense, I will reserve some judgement until I see him in this offense.  We needed a guy like Anderson as that opens up 1) the run game and keeps teams from stacking the box vs CMC, and 2) it opens up the short to intermediate routes our offense will likely feature. TB ''Two Gloves'' wasn't a bust as a first rounder he suffered a crazy knee injury. Even as NO's signal caller, they don't really feature a deep passing game, they take shots like anyone else but that isn't the basis. It's more about getting the ball out, keeping the QB upright, working the mismatch and YAC.  Teddy was a 1st round talent, and has the arm to connect deep with, this isn't a UDFA that guys here were anointing after 4 games. Teddy actually has legit seasons worth of tape to review if you go back, and take the time to see what he offers. 
    • What will the worlds reaction to China be once this is all over?  Nobody has time to worry with it now, but do you think China will suffer economically by the world turning its back on them?
