That is true if the coaches have faced each other a bunch. This is Quins first year in Atlanta, and they are going backwards

They're going so far backwards and fast that I think Quin was actually the one who helped George McFly at Prom.

Not sure how much I buy this article, but it raises a lot of good points.

Carolina has played an easy schedule, that's undeniable. The whole NFC South got a boost this year going up against the NFC East and AFC South. Any team, including TB, could be boosting and winning games left and right.

Let’s start at the top: This season, Carolina is outscoring foes by about 11.5 points per game, which is relatively low by the standards of an undefeated team. Among the 11-0 club’s dozen members, only the 2009 Indianapolis Colts and 1969 Los Angeles Rams had lower per-game scoring margins than the 2015 Panthers. Further, the Panthers have piled up the wins against a schedule rated as the league’s second-weakest by Pro-Football-Reference.com’s Simple Rating System (SRS). According to SRS, only two of the Panthers’ opponents thus far have been above-average teams: the Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers.

 

 

I have to agree with their point here, I totally see it. They do remind me a bit of the 2009 Colts, who were undefeated most the season, beating up on cupcake teams. The Colts barely beat New England that year at home, the same Patriots team that the Saints mopped the floor with a few weeks later. It's easy to start 11-0 when all your opponents are crap. The Colts could have went undefeated in 2009, with just the Patriots being their lone opponent that really was any good. 

 

So far so good, Carolina has only had to play one "tough" team, and that was the Packers, who are a mediocre joke. 

Carolina could run into a problem down the road, by playing all these crap teams and beating up on them, and then in the playoffs they have to play an actual competitive team that don't lay down.

    • Seems odd in general that it took so long.  Outside of the guy in SD, we rarely hear why someone holds out this long on a mundane contract with so little to quibble over. 
    • One thing I’ll say about Bob though, his small size & Wolverine (comic book character) mentality made him a terror against the run.  With him already being short, when he went submarine on a RB, they really risked their careers if their feet were planted when the Colonel was coming for them.  He turned so many guys into tip toe bandits or sent them helicoptering into the air.  No wonder our run defense was so stout.  Usually only took 1 “meeting” with Bob in the hole, to put fear in the RB’s head the rest of the game...  You had to know where he was at all times or kiss your knees goodbye.
    • I have to disagree with the last sentence. I think Sean Taylor (The former Hurricane & Redskin safety) was and would have statistically been better than all 3 had he not been murdered.  That dude was what you’d get if you created a cyborg safety. Big. Fast. Physical. And immaculate receiver level ball skills...  I still love the other 3, especially the Colonel, but Taylor was on another level.  A combination of all 3.
    • This is a big compliment for KM.    
    • No, if he wants to go be a gm somewhere who are we to hold him back from that.
