I am more excited for this season than I was last season.

Recommended Posts

First it was a new owner. Honeymoon over and a few months later he was getting poo on

Now it is a new coaching staff and QB.  We are ready to win!

Personally I never really follow a player once they leave Carolina. 

Really? How truthful is that statement? You can't tell me you weren't paying any attention when Steve Smith left for Baltimore and his first game against Charlotte he went for 2 TDs in a 38-10 trouncing.

We have arguably the most interesting coaching situation in the league with Rhule and Brady.  Super young team, it's really exciting.  There may be growing pains but we could be really fun to watch. 

Joe Brady using CMC, Moore, Robby, & Samuel should be interesting. 

The defense with this new DL in Weatherly, Burns, Brown, Short, Gross-Matos is easily the most excited I've been about that unit since Fox days.  We never really had a stellar DL under Rivera just a good overall defense (at times).  I also won't discount Kerr, Christian Miller and that big Baylor guy in Roy.  

OL, TE and LBs are works in progress...

DB is another super interesting spot with Chinn, Boston, Burris, Robinson, Jackson, Pride, Apple, & Tommy-Olives making a fast/young core.  Not an Apple fan but whatevs.

Is it weird that I actually enjoyed watching him get revenge? lol. 

I won't be following Cam much but power to the guy beyond the Panthers.

I agree, when i analyze the current team i cant find a reason not to be excited. I want see how this young defensive line looks and if joe Brady can duplicate succces in the pros. We may finally have a consistently good offense. I have watched bridgewater game tape from last season a lot. Say what you want the dude is a good QB.

If Cam can sign to a competitive team it’ll be great watching our young guys develop and hopefully Cam having a productive season that builds up his career. 

Cam was a talent we didn’t get to fully appreciate with the Panthers. I for one don’t care about players once they leave our team. It’s like when someone is sick and dying. After they pass I want them to be remembered at their best (with the team I root for), because I can’t be a fan of a singular person on a team sport if they aren’t on my team. I guarantee you didn’t follow Pepper Smitty, Thomas Davis, or the other Panthers that were significant contributors that left. So why Cam?

I’m excited to see young guys play and new concepts on offense and defense, but mostly unpredictable football will be a breath of fresh air.

No, this is not Carolina Panthers news, but since so many Panthers fans are also still huge Steve Smith fans I thought this was relevant.

Smith recently welled up when speaking about why he is coming back and playing another season. Smith also addressed concerns over his age directly in classic Steve Smith fashion.

i think it’s weird that people got more backlash for being fans of the starting quarterback of the carolina panthers than for “enjoying” an opponent’s “revenge game”

has anyone ever accused anyone of being a “steve smith only” fan?

that’s really funny bc i don’t remember seeing a lot of ppl disillusioned about the franchise and begging for change besides me and a few others last summer

everybody here was drinking kool aid and acting like the panthers just pulled off the best offseason in the entire league in 2019

I think more people than not choose to be optimistic. I consider myself a realist but also tend to focus more on the positives than negatives. I don’t think we make the playoffs this year but I hope we do and I do think there’s a chance we can if certain things fall into place.

I am curious and open minded and a little hopeful. That's as far as I'm willing to go right now.

I'm more excited simply because it feels like we've finally turned the page towards the next chapter of Panthers football.

The team got so much younger so fast, and there's a lot of young talent to be excited about and build around.

The new coaching staff has an exciting mix of guys, and it's nice to be able to move on from the Jon Fox and Ron Rivera style of football and really think of the Panthers as a team with a much more modern and dynamic offense.

I followed 89 when he left.  Honestly, I even followed Jake to a degree.   Jake was kinda weird follow but I still did it. 

If Cam plays this year, I'll 100% watch his games.   I would wager most hardcore fans will follow Cam.   Everyone is going to want to know the answer. 

I'm kinda excited about the Rhule staff and seeing what is what.  Hard to get super excited until we get a new QB to be excited over.  Teddy doesn't bring that factor to the equation for me.

I hope all the young guys get a ton of playing time so we both get them to improve and also get the top pick. It’s fine to be excited about the young guys in the secondary and DL. I am, but I’m tempering expectations for this year. I know that even Brown will have growing pains and guys like Pride, Chinn, YGM and Robinson are going to have a lot of growing pains and may not play that much.
