Of course you do. And, I've got the Panthers over the Seahawks because the Seahawks have a .34 winning percentage in 10:00 AM road games and they lost their first five road games last year.
Wilson was basically held back and eased into the team before Carrol sent him loose later on when he felt he was ready. So yes we lost some games in the start of the season including at road games, but from the Bears game onward the Hawks were on a roll. I'd also like to add that in the Atlanta game that Wilson was great in the near comeback, but the defense unfortunately did not do its part when they took the field and ultimately let the team down.
However, that Carolina upset is possible. Team really has no pass rush as of yet. Clemeons out...Irvin out we have a rookie from Idaho who might shine. If we can get some pressure on him it's over. If Cam can get outside it could be really a close game. If we force him to throw it's over. The hawks are team still reeling from losing Michael Robinson. I'm not sure how that is going to affect the team spirit in the locker room yet. If Carolina wants to beat this team ....now is that time. NOT later in the season.
Did you see how Pryor ran all over us from the QB spot. Look to that and more when Cam takes the field. If Cam has some decent down field targets they have a good shot. But then again he is throwing into the LEGION OF BOOM. His speed will be the thing that could help him with short slant passes.
