Is this the biggest game of the past couple of seasons?

Recommended Posts



I mean, I felt like last week was pretty damn important. Can’t lose twice to the Bucs in one season and go to 3-3. Lost to the 49ers and go to 4-3, well it’s not the end of the world. In terms of making a statement as a legit NFC contender, yes this week is a big damn deal.

It feels like we have to win every week, so I think every week is the biggest, most important game

It's a pretty huge game. I think London was actually more truly make or break in terms of playoff leverage, though I haven't seen this week's leverage % chart. Certainly the fact that most of the teams above us have very easy games this week adds a lot of pressure to win to keep pace.

This week is huge though too in terms of the quality of the opponent (though who they've played could make that a bit deceiving) and what it could do for Panthers confidence and the attention it brings.

The 2013 wins vs SF and NE come to mind as does the 2015 win at Seattle.

It does have a lot of echoes of last year at Pittsburgh too. So, while I want a W, above all I just desperately hope for a respectable close game and no serious injuries.

This has the 2015 Seattle game vibe. No one expects us to win.

I think it’s getting extra hype from us because we’ve had two weeks to stew and we are just on the other side of the playoff window.  
 

that said I still think it’s big.

way more 2013 san fran vibes, although this is a better panthers team overall.

Yes

it is a nfc conference game. Panthers have lost a division game and a conference game. In a tie break situation, even for a wild card position, this game is huge

49ers coach did pretty good against Ron’s 4 3 in the past. Let’s see how he does this year with Ron’s tweaked defense

....then Ron’s tendency to go into a shell with a lead 

offensively, conservative on first down won’t work in this game. 

do I think the 49ers are over rated, maybe but as per Parcells ‘you are what your record says you are’

looking forward to this to see who the Panthers are

No and here is why. The year was 2013, a scrappy, underdog Panthers team went into San Fran and beat a very good Harbaugh 49ers team.

Playoff time comes and it’s a rematch,  San Fran beats us and makes it to the NFCCG that year.

My point- I’m not reading much into this game at all because we could easily be the 2013 49ers in this situation. Besides, it’s very hard to beat a team twice in a row, so it could end up being a silver lining if we lose this one and have a rematch in the playoffs
