8-0 for the first time!

8-0 for the first time in our 43 year history.. what a good game tonight.. some offensive trouble with colston dropping passes. i hope his wrist is not injured again cause i feel that might be the reason for the drops.. two thumbs up for meachem with 5 catches and 98 yards and that amazing touchdown. didn't see much actions from pierre and mike tonight.. but im sure they will bounce back.. drew still ripped up the # 1 pass defense with 300+ yards. will smith was beast tonight.. he really has been doing good im liking his strive to play.. on the other hand i think grant needs to step up. idk if you guys saw but there was a play grant could of broke off the RT and get delhomme for a sack but it seemed like he just stood there. i hope Greer is ok and hoping its not a big injury. Bushrod did a good job containing peppers i give credit for that. though the OL did give up a sack and fumble and a deflection. the big question is.. do you think pressley did a good job? Geaux Saints.

Re: 8-0 for the first time!

Not impressed at all! Just as UGLY as last week...and the week before. We are managing to win but not playing good football. Our defense got exposed against the run and have been getting pounded ever since - that's not a good thing going forward. Our tackling is horrible...absolutely horrible. Our outside run press was as bad as the inside gap control. We finally got to Delomme at the end of the game and still let Smith get behind EVERYBODY late-down the stretch.
Thank you Carol's Panties for not wanting it as bad as we did.
It looked more like Carolina lost the game as aposed to us winning it.
At the end of the day, I'll take it, along with any other ugly win.
I just don't want to get used to winning ugly.

I think managing to win in the face of adversity is the mark of a CHAMPION! Maybe I'm wrong, but I've seen so many Champion teams winning BARELY in the face of every team gunning for them!

i know what you mean man. it was an ugly game but thats what you'd expect from a divisional game. well thats how i see it. the run was something that screwed but but we are missing some key players such as sed and fujita. and plus we have marvin mitchell playing lol.. not a good idea. our tackling hasn't been great mostly due to the players working on trying to strip it as to wrapping up then stripping as stated in the atlanta game. our outside run and inside gap press wasn't not all great i mostly see that because it seems like some people forget or dont know their assignments. i wouldnt say we got to delhomme at the end because will smith did have some outstanding plays i beleive in the third and 2nd quarter, excuse if im wrong but thats what i could recall. i get oyur point as to accepting it but not wanting to get used to ugly wins. our coaches are really good at fixing mistakes and i beleive we will have more good wins. i can feel your frustrations towards how are defense was playing and how ugly our win was. but a wins a win lets jsut enjoy our new franchise record. WHO DAT

I don't think you are wrong.
This was a "monkey of our backs" game knowing the Panthers have been wining in the Dome for so long.

It's really amazing, the accomplishments this year...

First time 8-0
First time they win after the bye.
First time they beat the Panthers in the Dome since 2001!

... all the injuries they have: Brown, Moore, Evans, Ellis, Clancy, Fujita...
... all the TOs in the past 3 games... all the 14+ point holes in the past 2 games.

... it is just amazing...
