First I have to say I disagree with this statement. I want to clarify that I have been a Panthers fan my entire life. I’m in the generation where I haven’t known Charlotte without the Panthers. That being said, I have emotionally detached from the team for the past several years. I say that to mean that while I still watch the games, I don’t get emotionally invested. I expect them to lose at this point, so I don’t get nervous during the games or upset with a loss. Which is a far cry from normal for me. Anyone who knows me will tell you being with me during a college game (or Panthers a few years ago) is next-level stressful. But a recent study by ClutchBet has found that the Carolina Panthers are the most stressful team to support this time of year.
For any NFL teams this time of year is stressful if you’re looking to clinch that playoff spot, division title, or the elusive first-round bye. So this was taken into account by ClutchBook. They analyzed numbers from 2017-2021 to determine the most stressful teams to support. This is because, in that time span, the Panthers have only won 24% of their November and December games. That is essentially one game per month. Though its too soon to truly tell the tides may be turning. The Panthers are coming off a win on Sunday and are on a two-game win streak. They’ve even won 3 out of their 5 November and December games. If you aren’t good at math that’s a 60% win rate. I’d take that any day over the trends of the past few seasons.
In fact, the Panthers still have an outside shot at a division win and playoff spot. Regardless of if we reach that, it’s obvious the turnaround under intern coach Steve Wilkes.
