How prepared are you for another hilariously miserable season?

fug me you miserable sods could suck the life out of any room.

Yup.

We're going to upset some teams this year.  We were better than our record last year due to injuries.  When Horn, CMC and the OL stay healthier than last year, we are going to surprise some teams.

I'm going to enjoy the laughs all the way. I don't think there is any chance we win more than 7 games but that's fine with me. Bad teams usually pick high and have talent on the roster but don't win regardless. That is us since Tepper showed up.

I was incredibly dubious of Rhule once I heard him speak after we hired him. I cheered anyways but those times died after they traded for Sam. Well what sounded full of poop turned out to be 100% full of poop. If you can't win then watching bad things happen to bad people is good enough for now. It's not what I wanted but it is not uncommon with a new owner in the NFL sadly.

So let the laughs begin and may the tears of the unbelievers taste refreshing because it's not like we have another realistic option. Rinse and repeat.

Yeah, I am prepped to do a lot more laughing than being pissed off this season. I hope the broadcast crews are liberal with their cuts to Tepper in the owners box when the Keystone Cops mode gets in full gear.

I want to see that fuger squirm at what he has created for us.

All of that. There should be no place to hide left at this point. The crowds, the broadcast crews and the media can all teach Tepper why a token 3rd year was not needed for anyone with a set of eyes and a brain. 

Player development is the only place I have any positive hope left at this point and even that is tampered by the reality of it all.

I get the op and every one else saying screw the Panthers it’s hard watching us when we suck but I’ll continue to go to the games and be outnumbered by the opposing teams fans. Somebody’s gotta do it so oh well I will.

I haven't decided if I want to attend games this season or not(assuming I have time anyway). 

If we decide to not have Darnold start and we see Corral/Baker/Jimmy G....I might come out for a game or two.

I suspect selling tickets at face will be a lot more challenging this season.

Fully, and I expect nothing less with Rhule at the helm. Doesn't mean I don't acknowledge the possibility of some major turnaround/breakout, as that's always a possibility and would be fantastic to see, but the odds of that are pretty slim IMO even with the NFL-caliber offseason.

To summon the essence of John Fox, it is what it is. Let's get to the season and see what happens.

I want to go to a game where Corral starts. That's it. It's been 2 dead ass years under Rhule and Covid. It would be nice to laugh and chant 'Fire Rhule' for one game.

I get it and I’m in no way shaming those who choose to not watch the likely upcoming train wreck of a season just pointing out what I’ll do.

We have improved the roster and coaching staff and we are getting key guys back from injury. That should be enough to not end the year on a 2-12 streak this season.

With that said, major areas we haven’t fixed 

1. QB. Those hoping for corral to be a savior are overly optimistic. He’s a third round project that they took a chance on. He might surprise us all but historical odds are highly against that. They can talk up Darnold all they want but he’s still going to make bad decision under pressure and sometimes from a clean pocket. I dont think he can lead a team to the playoffs 

2. Head coach. This goes without saying. At least he’s put together a real NFL staff. If he’s coach in name only there might be some hope here.

Also the schedule is a bitch on paper this year. Both super bowl participants, the NFC west and the AFC south. Our crossover AFC game is a broncos team that will be significantly improved with Russell Wilson at QB. Games we might expect to win like Detroit and NYG are no given based on past history with this coach.

So yes, we should be better on paper and we’ve made some good coaching and personnel moves in the offseason. I still think we are too limited at QB and head coach and the schedule to win more than 7 games. However, given Tepper’s love affair with Rhule that will be enough improvement to keep him for year 4.

    • Did we hear Corral will get more game time / a game plan?
    • Thanks to Anthony Rizzuti of Panthers Wire 1. QB Baker Mayfield: 80.5 2. OL Cade Mays: 79.1 3. WR Keith Kirkwood: 78.4 4. WR Derek Wright: 77.2 5. TE Giovanni Ricci: 75.5 33. TE Jared Scott: 46.5 34. C Pat Elflein: 45.6 35. QB Matt Corral: 43.3 36. RG Austin Corbett: 31.9 37: TE Nate Becker: 30.3   1. LB Cory Littleton: 92.8 2. CB Duke Dawson: 90.1 3. CB Stantley Thomas-Oliver III: 82.1 4. LB Brandon Smith: 81.5 5. CB Tae Hayes: 77.0 31. LB Julian Stanford: 37.7 32. DT Daviyon Nixon: 37.4 33. LB Isaiah Graham-Mobley: 36.4 34. DT Bravvion Roy: 36.0 35. DT Frank Herron: 30.2 Take from it what you will. I would like to see all the grades, but I will say that it appears that the depth at DT is bad, while the same at CB looks good. Our LB corps may not be great, but its floor is probably average at worst. All in all, these grades are probably a pretty accurate reflection of the team's strengths and weaknesses at certain positions.
