I think the Panthers CAN stomp all over them...I just don't think they WILL. Just based on recent history.

All are indeed winnable. However, at best I see 4-3. With the only loss to the Rams.

No not really. We have the talent to, but you never know what team is gonna show up. I mean did you expect us to romp the Giants? I thought the opposite was gonna happen. I thought Eli would throw all over us. Teams that primarily throw are in trouble against our front 7, but teams with balance may bother us.

Exactly. We can compete with any team talent-wise, but don't have the mental strength sometimes to finish games. Week 1 is a microcosm of our team this year. We played better than Seattle for most of the game, but failed to come through when it mattered. Hopefully this disturbing trend has ended but we will have to wait and see.

We have always been a team with good talent and poor coaching.

I think after the long speech Rivera have to his players after the Buffalo loss and the fact a NYJ used the Panthers as a punch line really woke them up.

I see us going on a hot run, 5-2 when we meet against the Falcons.

I think it's possible. I think we should be able to handle Arizona with our front 4. I also think the defense can shut down Adrian Peterson, but can we keep Patterson from having a break out game.

The defense will show up every week in my opinion. We just need to offense build off the Giants game.

The Giants game was the only game where I was please with our offensive playcalling. Hopefully Shula recognizes what worked and can translate to following games.

Shula needs to let Cam run. That was clearly a huge difference. It's not just the plays go for positive yardage but it throws the defense off and makes them stay on their heels. With a great run game, solid if not elite defense and good game management with a few big throws by Cam I like our chances against anybody.

Offensive play calling importance needs to go: 1. Run 2. Play action pass 3. Pass 4. Read option or design run with Cam.

Our defense has only allowed 36 points all season, 12 a game. If our offense puts 24 points on the board a game I like our chances again against anybody.
