Importance of the Preseason

1

We all know the 2012 preseason recently came out. But how important is it really? The Panthers are 31-38 all time and have won at least 50% of the preseason games in their 4 playoff seasons. When we went 12-4 in 2008 we had some very good preseason games including a huge rout of the Redskins that would preview how dominant our running game would be. The Detroit Lions went 0-16 in 2008. Guess how many preseason games they won? All four. The Panthers have gone 2-10 in the last 3 years and that's been pretty indicative of our regular season success. Even though preseason games don't really matter, I really want to see everyone on our roster strive for the win so they can truly show the coaching staff what they are made of. I like our opponents for this preseason as we will go up against stout defenses and diverse offenses.
