What's your opinion?

I'm reading Steve's comments on Reeders take and I have to wonder...Is the 1st team taking preseason seriously or are they going to be this ineffective during the regular season. I'm really hoping we will see the real Panthers when the Eagles get here.

Re: What's your opinion?

In my opinion I think we are going into these games with little to no game plan esp the giants and dolphins since we play them in the regular season-I think we'll see a better team vs the eagles, but our defense hasnt looked good against the run and the pass- The offense will be much better with J-stew and Smith in the lineup as well Bottom line the defense has to step up we are struggling with out a run stuffer in the middle

We suck.  But hey its a work in progress right?  Or I think we just chose a bad preseason to have a bad preseason. 

The offense I will give a slight pass too as we are missing two major pieces in Smitty and Stewart and Moose did not play last night.  But the D had everyone but Kemo and I know that is a huge loss but it should not have been a devastating one and now it is looking that way.

Re: What's your opinion?

We're not just getting beat buy the run, The giants and Dolphins were both able to throw the ball on us. Let's face it, we saw during the second half of last year that our secondary isn't that good. Peppers hasn't done anything, I hope he's not just gonna show up this year and collect his money, and have another "mysterious illness" like in 2007.

Re: What's your opinion?

My gut tells me this is going to be a long season one we'll look back and regret signing JP to 1 mil per game. This team has no depth. Even the starters appear weaker than Miami or NY, our O line looks smaller than the D line's we've played, our D line looks smaller than the O line's we've played. And I dont mind smaller if their flying around, but my eyes see guys who are going half-way and that generally translates to injuries. I see a lot of alligator arms and busted plays on both sides of the ball. Call it what you want: chemistry, attitude, let down from last year, the inability to win in back to back seasons - I see anywher from 4-12 to 6-10 where before i thought with the redonkulous schedule we'd go 9-7.

Re: What's your opinion?

I still think we can go 9-7 or 10-6
Once we actually game plan a little, and put plays in is when we'll know for sure how good our team will be-We will probably game plan a little bit for the ravens so this will be a good test for us
The defense is saving their hard hits for the regular season, JP will play hard, Everett Brown is looking real good he beat Jake Long last night and forced a fumble and a sack

Just wait until Phili when Meeks and Fox actually game plan it will hopefully look a lot better

Good points SmallFish. I really hope they are just not playing hard because it's the preseason, but they played hard last preaseason so why wouldn't they in this one? I think we'll be better than 6-10, I'm thinkin somewhere along the lines of 8-8 to 10-6. But only because of Double Trouble and Smitty. The pass D will get exposed in week 1, and will have a tough year, but hopefully the D-Line will stiffen up. I think this year will show what kind of QB Jake is, he'll either be good or mediocre. The way the preseason has gone thus far combined with the end of last year, he looks less than mediocre. He can't seem to find the open man sometimes. Although he did complete 3 passes last night on 3rd downs, and he was with out Smitty and Moose. If we don't have a winning record, or atleast 8-8, Fox could be gone. Only time will tell.
