Why would that make any difference? Who knows what the level of competition the Panthers will have faced by the end of the year. What if all 9 wins come against teams that failed to make the playoffs? That's not the way to asses the team at this point in time.
Pandion Haliaetus wrote:As a Seahawks fan since 1997 even I know two things: Don't be too critical of a road opener, first game of the season, especially on a 10 am start because the Seahawks usually tend to look sluggish and suck even against worst talent and easier weather conditions.
I've likely been a Seahawks fan longer than you've been alive, if you just started being a fan in 1997. I don't need to be told by you or anyone for that matter about the Seahawk's history of difficulties on the east coast and early starts. Every team has a first game and half the teams start on the road. Seahawks had plenty of hot weather for training camp, so I don't buy that excuse.
Pandion Haliaetus wrote:And 2ndly: Don't get way too excited over a hot start because more often than not the flames die out.
Thanks for that sage advice. I'll decide when I'll get excited or not though. Just in case you're wondering, I'll also decide when to be concerned if that's ok by you.

Wow. Just when I thought you had exhausted your obvioius deep understanding of the NFL and the Seahawks you come up with reminding us of the obvious. Could you revel us some more with explaining what last year has to do with this year and why that means we shouldn't critique the team's performance in a game?

Oooh I knew I could count on you to come through.
Pandion Haliaetus wrote:I'm just saying if problems continue to persist with no avail then start dropping rocks from space on your dinosaurs but to be so critical after the first real game the season is little short sighted and premature.
I guess I'll just wait for you to give me the go ahead before I point out any shortcomings I may see in our team from week to week. When the OL plays better against SF than they did in Carolina is it ok with you that I point out the improvement or should I just pretend their poor play in Carolina didn't happen? Please let me know, because I crave your approval and don't want to break any of your rules for Seahawk fans.
Pandion Haliaetus wrote:Our team is built to become stronger as the season journeys on as other teams wear out in the final battles but the Seahawks are as human as everyone else and young.
I'm sorry, I see the problem now. I didn't know that you were an insider who is privy to such detailed information about personnell decisions and game planning.
Pandion Haliaetus wrote:They will make a lot of mistakes but should get better with each one and with more experience.
I had no idea that teams and players get better with experience. I just thought they popped out of the womb with everything they needed to be successful.
Thank you so much for this lesson on being a fan. I don't know how I've managed all these years without you.
