Re: Reality Check People!

Ste back from the edge man.  Your comment about Delhomme cannot be backed up because Smitty hasn't played this preseason.  Also I think he has played very well with the limited action.  As far as the defense, I would look for them to pick up a DT.  Wait till we drop a few reg-season games before you think about jumping

Re: Reality Check People!

Schedule not that bad? LOL. OK. The Panthers first units have came out flat on both sides of the ball(with the exception of Williams on O) & Fox has not shown any kind of game planning or adjustments. Once again, these are all bad signs & everyone should take a red flag approach. The OP is right, they have no depth, they havent addressed the glaring weaknesses, they have a tough schedule & a predictable coach that seems to get outcoached in his "bend dont break" type way of playing. Its 7-9 at best guys, thats the reality. Its not being negative, its not being suicidal, its just the facts. Injuries will hurt this team & they are not prepared for it this time.

Re: Reality Check People!

Reporter: you are forgetting that this is the preseason.  There is no game planning for the first two preseason games.  Fox said it himself.  I think the real test and show of what we have will be sat night.  We do need to address the need at DT, but there is still time.  You guys are talking like we are 0-2 in the regular season with no sign of change.

All I know is this: The Panthers are still the best team in the division, and every team has glaring weaknesses that can be taken advantage of.

Re: Reality Check People!

To all the cry babies that dont believe in this team.. find a better way to waste your time.  The core of this team is still intact and there is no reason not to expect wins.  You guys want to sit here and look at games on the schedule and say this game is tough and this game is tough, but other teams and their fans are looking at us and saying we dont want to play them.  Youre sitting here and looking at records and crying about our opponents, well last year every team in the division had a winning record and we won that division.  Now all of a sudden we are afraid of good teams.  We can only win games against teams that are guaranteed not to make the playoffs?

Also every team has to deal with their injuries.  Teams have to deal with losing players to free agency.  Teams lose their best defensive player like Haynesworth, but everyone expects the Titans to be good again.  There are a lot of good teams that have weaknesses and are missing guys cause of injuries.  You guys are simply too close to this team and every "problem" is the end of the world.  Everyone needs to take a deep breath and let the season play out. 

Lastly everything on paper is not what will happen.  You list the teams and what we are up against.  Well nobody thought we were gonna put up almost 300 rushing yards on a TB defense that was considered in the top 10 in the league at the time.  And no one thought our rushing attack would be able to work that effectively on the Giants at the end of the season too.  But that is why they play the game!!!!!!!

If you believe in this team then lets have fun and enjoy this ride.. If you do not please find something else to do, and make it a little easier for the rest of us to get tickets.

Before training camp I would have agreed with this but with our current injuries and lack of DT help and with ATL losing five Def starters and the Bucs having many question marks, it looks like (can't believe I am actually saying this and it actually seem true) the Saints are the most balanced team in the NFC South. 

It looks like the curse may be back.  :facepalm:
