Yeah and what happened to the blueprint for the offensive line? Now Barton and Adams are gone and the same suspects with the exception of Balough being a new face and Oakley is gone. Beekman starts for now but what about the future? This is sorry planning.

It will be a hard fought game but in the end will be a carolina foot. Nobody even has a clue as to how good the Panthers really are but us in carolina. Da Dears are fixin' to find out. All I'm trying to say is you better bring it or pay the price. What are you going to think about your management when Moose scores twice and Harris not only strips Forte but knocks him out too. You can't out physical the South. You should just give up now and save your energy for 7-9.

you sports guys are generally stupid. have any of you ever seen a full season of football before? your sure dont act like it. the chargers had all kinds of problems. i get it. but so did the panthers. a new offensive line, with one player on the new line getting hurt, jake coming back from tommy john surgery, playing without steve smith, starting wide receivers with little experience or no experience with jake,(exception to moose of course), a new defensive line, peppers in a new position, a defensive team captain in only his 2nd? year, a new secondary, new running back configuration featuring a rookie running back and starting the season on the road playing the super bowl favored chargers. you can give all the excuses you want but the cats went west and beat a loaded charger team.

and if you look closely, i bet ALL the nfl teams in week one, both winners and losers had similar challenges to overcome. the goal is not to have the best team or least problems to start a game. the goal is to overcome problems and win anyway.

and to big daddy, i love the cats, but sundays game alone will not tell whos offseason path was better. it will just be one number in the equation, and the final answer for either team will be determined later in the season, and possibly in a future season.

it only comes down to one game when the playoffs start.

so when you guys make comments, act like youve seen an entire season play out before and not act like one game during the regular season determines everything.

Carolina is not where WRs go to die... you killed Moose up in Chi-town. Lol. Jerry Richardson (Panthers owner) does take an interest in winning and thus does hold his coaches responsible for winning. Although, not nearly as much as some of the fans who would have fired Fox last year.
Carolina 7-9 last year should not match up well against the Bears. We won a surprising game against the number 1 RB from last year last week. The Bears will be a real test as to how good the Panthers are this year.
Wish we had Steve Smith for this one.
Good luck!
