Loss to Eagles worst halftime lead squandered since Nov 2016

I got curious as to how the team had fared in the weeks following squandering a big halftime lead.

In the 8 other games where they've led by 9 or more points at the half and then gone on to lose, their record was 5-2 in the following week's game. (In 2001 week 13, the game with the large squandered lead was followed by a bye, so I didn't count it.)

In 2011 week 14, squandered a 16 point lead.  Week 15: Won 28-13

In 2016 week 10, squandered a 14 point lead.  Week 11:  Won 23-20

In 2011 week 11, squandered a 13 point lead.  Week 12:  Won 27-19

In 2001 week 13, squandered an 11 point lead.  Week 14 Bye  [Wk 15 L]

In 2010 week 13, squandered an 11 point lead.  Week 14:  Lost 10-31

In 2009 week 9, squandered an 11 point lead.  Week 10: Won 28-19

In 2016 week 1, squandered a 10 point lead.  Week 2: Won 46-27

In 1998 week 10, squandered a 9 point lead.  Week 11: Lost 9-13

I almost forgot about that 2016 Chiefs game and so against my own wisdom, I looked it up.

That was when Kelvin Benjamin fumbled on the first play of the final drive with only 30 seconds left on the clock which led to the game losing FG. And before that, Cam throwing a pick six. 

Can't lie. That loss was just as brutal.

Apologies, I know it's long-past the 24 hour rule and time to be moving on from Sunday's loss.  But I've had a really busy two weeks and no chance to be on here much at all for awhile.

You haven't missed much.  In fact, you should probably be thankful.  This place has been a shitshow.  I really hope we win sunday just so people's periods hopefully end.  The dumbass hot takes have been extra this week.

9 points?  This is hardly a 28-3 type of collapse 

Definitely not a huge lead. I was kind of surprised that a 16 point margin was the biggest halftime lead we've ever squandered.

Just for fun I looked up Panthers largest-ever margin at halftime.  Funnily enough, 28 points.  3 games.  1 of them versus Atlanta in 2015.  The 38-0 shutout.  Fun.

and since then they drafted a HOFer at QB while we took an oft injured RB, and signed two bottom 10 starters as signal callers

    • I don't think it has anything to do with moving the team. The Market in the Carolina's is one of the fastest growing in the country. There is a reason Tepper is making the moves he is with the Rock Hill Complex and the MLS Team. In 5 to 10 years everything he is invested in will be worth double. He may not know football but this kind of business stuff is his bread and Butter and a major reason he wanted to buy the team. As far as the NFL and the football stuff, It all falls on Goodell and how much of a piece of human trash he is. It is the same story with Rob Manfred and the MLB. David Stern was in that same camp but look at Adam Silver now and what he has done with the NBA. The NBA is the fastest growing sport in the world and at the best place it's been since the world wide draw of Michael Jordan in the 90's 25 years ago. Even though super teams are still a think there are actual signs of parity now that haven't been seen in the NBA in decades. With all of the positive rule changes and things Adam Silver has done since taking over, He is easily the best commissioner in professional sports. Meanwhile guys like Goodell and Manfred are turning their sports more and more into the WWE each year while only caring about making the owners and themselves as much money as possible. They don't give a damn about the actual product they're putting out there. Player safety, cheating??? They let their public relation teams try and manipulate the media into promoting that these things are their top priorities and when these issues actually make it to the forefront, they show their true colors and do the exact opposite of what should be done and go back to their PR teams to sweep the poo under the rug while trying to pull the blinders down over their customers and players faces.
    • Basically dont draft a one dimensional player top top and a meh athlete. Fat run stoppers can be had rounds 2-5. Phil has look decent for example. Roy has his moments as well... But Brown... this I run a 5.2 whatever he did and I'm mostly a run stuffer but not really...is looking as busty as  42 year old mom on the rebound. Very dissapointed.
    • This coaching staff is too terrible for literally any QB/player to overcome. I've never seen anything like this in the history of the Panthers, even in our 2-14 season with a lame duck Fox. That team was bad because of Pickles. Insert Matt Moore or who ever at the time and that same team would have gone 6-10 or Panthers classic 7-9. People are mad because the talent on this team is good enough to make the playoffs. When you look at the roster it isn't crazy to expect playoffs even with a second year coaching staff. The talent on this team sometimes overcomes the lack of coaching and wins games. It was like Rivera's tenure. The team constantly won in spite of the coaching and when they needed the coaches to do their jobs ("cough cough" Super Bowl "cough cough') They failed the players every time.  4 QB's now and the same terrible results. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize what the problem is. Same thing goes for the defense. As soon as a team counters what our defense is throwing at them and they need the coaches to counter, they get nothing. Literally, our coaches do nothing, week after fuging week. I'd be more than happy to have Cam and Sam back next season to compete for the starting job as long as we have a coaching staff in place with legitimate NFL experience.
