Panthers safety Roman Harper: “We are the better team”

cD05ODdlNmNhY2MwMjRlZWQzNTJhM2ViYTQ1Y2VlY2YzOCZnPWRlMjEwOWNmYWFkZmQ1MTU4NGVkMzBkMGJhMjBiMzZm AP

In six days, the Panthers will host the Seahawks in the divisional round of the playoffs. And the talk already has begun.

We are the better team,” safety Roman Harper declared Monday, via Steve Reed of the Associated Press.

“We have to go out and show confidence in who we are and the things that we have done all year — and don’t shy away from the pressure,” Harper added.

That’s fine. But it’s one thing to be confident. It’s quite another to give the Seahawks bulletin-board material.

Carolina beat Seattle earlier this year in Seattle, after losing to the Seahawks in the divisional round last year, 31-17. Before that, Seattle had won three straight games by five or fewer points over the Panthers, in 2012, 2013, and 2014.

After two straight years as the No. 1 seed, Seattle entered the current postseason as the No. 6 seed. Which means that the pressure is squarely on the 15-1 Panthers to win at home, something they failed to do two years ago as the No. 2 seed, falling to the 49ers, 23-10.

All that hard work and success by the Panthers throughout the regular season can disappear in three hours on Sunday afternoon. Seattle, which won a game for the ages in Minnesota on Sunday on a missed 27-yard field goal, is riding house money.

So if Carolina is the better team, they’d better be ready to prove it on Sunday. Or they’ll have no pressure at all during the NFC title game, because they won’t be in it.

    Zimmer showed you how to shut down their offense. Now just score some TDs and it’s yours.

    We survived a slugfest in weather conditions that NO southern team could survive in. Now we’re going to warm and balmy Charlotte, where ALL the pressure is on the Panthers.

    Who cares. Play the game then talk.

    I hate the Seahawks but at least they have the ring and the bragging rights what a bunch of punk clowns these Panther frauds are

    Don’t worry, Scam will still be celebrating first downs while his team is being blown out because it’s all about him and his inane elementary school celebrations

    Act like you been there, bunch of loser amateurs

  12. captainspangled says: Jan 11, 2016 11:51 PM

    Aw is Mikey mad his fave team got insulted?

    The Panthers are the better team. 2015 belongs to us. Accept it.

  13. kylexitron says: Jan 11, 2016 11:51 PM

    Roman Harper? The same dude that Matt Hasselbeck and the first playoff 7-9 Seahawks victimized and embarrassed in the 2010 playoffs, who was repeatedly burned and abused? He should probably let someone else do the talking.

  14. pantherfan1973299 says: Jan 11, 2016 11:55 PM

    A game for the ages? Only for Walsh, who will live on in finklesque infamy. The Seahawks didn’t win that game, it was gift wrapped and handed to them. Am I nervous? Yes I am, but I really think the Panthers are legit, and they will do this. Keep pounding!!!

  15. Bizzareslantpass says: Jan 11, 2016 11:56 PM

    Better team? Not sure about that. Have a less obnoxious fan base? Absolutely!

  16. nineball26 says: Jan 12, 2016 12:00 AM

    thats HILARIOUS!!!!

    you WISH

    lets see… how many NFC titles YOU HAVE?

    none? hmm..

    how many SUPERBOWL wins? oh NONE?

    lol at the better the team, you mean you were the team who played ONE team over .500 all SEASON and got beaten down by a 4-12 team..

    and lets not talk about how the officials hand you almost every game we’ll leave that alone

    better alright, only one thing is CERTAIN and thats time will tell….

    GO HAWKS!!!

  17. number1hawkfan says: Jan 12, 2016 12:01 AM

    They might be the better team but you have to win to move on. That’s what’s great about making the playoffs. Seattle has as good a chance as any to move on and as a fan that’s all I need. Can’t wait till Sunday and I’m confident there’s a chance I go to bed happy Sunday night. I don’t know who will win but I know the Hawks can compete with anybody.

  18. realitycheckbaby says: Jan 12, 2016 12:02 AM

    Seattle wins this game.

  19. stepheninportland says: Jan 12, 2016 12:03 AM

    As the article points out, the Seahawks have won four out of five of the last games they’ve played.

    I will concede the Panthers have the better record this year, but the better team? I guess we’ll see on Sunday. At 10:00 PST. A little gift to the Panthers from the NFL.

    Not that it’s ever been a problem for the Seahawks.

    GO HAWKS! Just win on this Sunday.

  20. bonecrushinghits says: Jan 12, 2016 12:08 AM

    Correct. 15-1 team playing at home and 2 weeks rest Vs 10-6 team who just barely eeked out a win on a muffed chip shot field goal. The Panthers are clearly the better team and should win easily. “Should” being the key word. Hoping for a great game regardless.

  21. thatneuneu says: Jan 12, 2016 12:13 AM

    Just keep pounding!

  22. nineball26 says: Jan 12, 2016 12:14 AM

    oh and lets throw int he fact Seattle is UNDEFEATED in Carols house..

    Carols house, I picture Kam and his dancing clowns with apron baking cookies while the Hawks are outside hunting down the nights dinner

    Panters, that’s a hoot, this Seahawks team has NEVER LOST in YOUR house!!!!

    stop daydreaming and play!!!

  23. bombittorandy says: Jan 12, 2016 12:16 AM

    Talk with your play first please….

  24. 704firecats says: Jan 12, 2016 12:16 AM

    1st off, I’m a Panthers fan but I just don’t get why a 15-1 team gets so little respect. I understand Seattle is a great team and has had our number 4 out of the last 5 games, but you do not go 15-1 by mistake. When Vegas makes the #1 seed almost a pick-em game vs the #6 seed, that’s just plain disrespect. The Panthers were just as hot as the Seahawks coming into the playoffs. Just because we lost one game to a bitter, divisional rival, on the road does not change that fact. I think it will be a great game on Sunday and I’m hoping that we not only win but if we do, finally get a little respect as well!

    Go Panthers!

  25. conormacleodisloosebutthole says: Jan 12, 2016 12:19 AM

    Not a fan of either team but my money is on Carolina. The Vikings almost beat the Seahawks for crying out loud.

  26. Marshawn Lunch says: Jan 12, 2016 12:26 AM

    Be ready to prove it.

  27. jshawaii22 says: Jan 12, 2016 12:26 AM

    Yes you are on paper. And, You came into Seattle and and beat them in their house which started the Seahawks series of ‘we can’t hold leads in the 4th qtr’ games this year.

    The Seahawks have come to Carolina under Pete and beat you all 3 times in your stadium the past years.

    If anything, the biggest advantage is the condition of the Seahawks coming off that Ice Bowl which has to be hurting. I can’t imagine recovering physically in a few days.

    It’s really on Russell.. play like you did against the Cards, it’s a 50/50 win… play like you did against the Vikings and we won’t, period.

  28. gergie1957 says: Jan 12, 2016 12:28 AM

    He would be best just to get out there and show it on the field. Talk is cheap.

    Hilarious, good luck with that one Old Man Harper.

  30. oldbrowndawg says: Jan 12, 2016 12:35 AM

    What’s wrong with these dummies? Just shut up and play the game! Why give the other team extra motivation? I can see why this guy never played for New England. Belichick famously said once, “Don’t play the dumb ones.” Geez.

  31. dohczeppelin says: Jan 12, 2016 12:39 AM

    “Riding house money” is pretty accurate. Seahawks are good, don’t get me wrong, but they must be the luckiest team in football (I’m looking at you, Lions game).

    As a Bills fan I’ve developed a special instinct that’s best described as a sinking feeling in my stomach that occurs every time it looks like the Bills might actually win something significant. I feel it right before disaster inevitably strikes. So watching Seahawks games is just such a bizarre experience for me…. every time it seems obvious that they’re goners the planets just seem to align for them. The NFC title game last year against the Packers… I mean, how did that even happen?

    Ah well. As they say, it’s better to be lucky than good.

  32. dickshotdogs says: Jan 12, 2016 12:39 AM

    We shall see…when was the last time we lost IN CAROLINA……?

  36. rlr79 says: Jan 12, 2016 1:07 AM

    Harper should talk to Josh Norman, he took a much better approach. Carolina may be better, and maybe there not, one thing is for sure besides a forth quarter melt down in Seattle, the Seahawks have had the Panthers number for four years now, and poking the hornets nest may not be the smartest decision.

  37. theashleyguy says: Jan 12, 2016 1:12 AM

    Carolina had the better team in the regular season. This is the playoffs and none of that means a thing.

    But it will be a great game. Two excellent defenses (but Seattle was ranked number 2 and Carolina number 6 in total defense). Two good offenses (but Seattle was ranked 4 and Carolina 11 in total offense). Two game-changing quarterbacks (but Wilson was the highest-rated passer in the NFL this year with a 110.1 rating and Newton was 8th with a 99.4 rating). AND CAROLINA HAS THE BETTER TEAM?

    Carolina has the hype. Seattle has the facts. All the pressure is on Carolina and I think that the Seahawks will advance to the NFC Championship Game once again.

  38. allidoiswin55 says: Jan 12, 2016 1:29 AM

    Flat out STUPID COMMENT! Don’t give the seahawks any extra motivation and don’t put that unnecessary pressure on your own team which outside of a miraculous late game td likely get a Loss in Seattle like the past 3-4 years have happened. Seattle plays the same type of ball as Carolina but the Panthers defense is more susceptible than Seattles is currently. CamVP in 4-5 games has been terrible he finally broke through in the 4th qtr the last game but until the end of the game Cam had like 50 total yards in over 3 qtrs.

    Going to be a bloodbath hope both teams come ready to play like tonight’s national championship game was played.

  39. vancouversportsbro says: Jan 12, 2016 1:56 AM

    Thanks for the bulletin board material mr. big neck

  40. 1trojan33usc says: Jan 12, 2016 2:18 AM

    Attaboy Roman !! Way to “spark up” those bulletin boards. What a tool, I might expect this from a rookie but Roman has been around for some time now.

  41. goawayeverybody says: Jan 12, 2016 2:23 AM

    The Seahawks are going to destroy the Panthers and it’s not going to be close.

    35-17. Buh bye sCam Newton.

  42. mcmccii says: Jan 12, 2016 2:50 AM

    Panthers can’t keep their mouth shut. Jinx city.

  43. bannedfromchoirpractice says: Jan 12, 2016 3:33 AM

    Seattle to Charlotte is a five hour flight, not to mention this will be the Seahawks’ third road game in three weeks. Cam is “on” this year like no qb I’ve ever seen. The Panthers have had two full weeks to get this game figured out. The Seahawks, on the other hand, will take two days to thaw out from the Vikings game and then come up with a half-hearted game plan before jumping on another plane for a miserable five hour flight to Charlotte. How do you not love Panthers at home -2.5 or -3?

  44. kicksave1980 says: Jan 12, 2016 3:33 AM

    “Bulletin board material” is so stupid. Both teams know that the other team is going to show up to try to beat them. Players on both teams are going to give 100% effort. This is the playoffs…if a team needs “bulletin board material” to get up for this, they won’t be around long anyway. Or maybe the Panthers should talk about how great the Seahawks are so they’ll go easy on them…come on man.

  45. eljefedelmundo says: Jan 12, 2016 3:34 AM

    I miss having him on the Saints.

    Why did he go? Was it attitude or $$?

    Best to him, but not the Panthers obviously..

  46. aavengern7 says: Jan 12, 2016 5:15 AM

    Talk talk. Media has to write about something they hope people want to read. Saturday playing the game will decide it. To many variables to choose anyone. If Carolina comes out with fire in their belly the Hawks will have their hands full. All you need is one goofy play like Walsh missing a chip in field goal and it changes everything. Someone fumble, slip, or even have the squirts on game day. It’s all talk. Carolina plays hungry at home they should win. They play scared or some freak play who knows. Wilson is a handful.

  47. vikingforlife says: Jan 12, 2016 5:23 AM

    It is VERY obvious the Panthers are the better team. Not sure why everyone commenting here is so VERY afraid to admit that??? GO PANTHERS!!! Obnoxious fan base???? You have got to be kidding me and the rest of America, right? While my pain is still very fresh from our loss, I can still bring myself up enough to get ready to root for football on Sunday and I will be EXTREMEMELY HAPPY to do so!!! Good Luck Cam, even though I know team really doesn’t need any of Petey and Russell’s “Magic”!!

  48. namingrights says: Jan 12, 2016 5:42 AM

    15-1 > can’t even win your division or beat the Rams

    What 4-12 team beat down the Panthers?

  53. heelinfine says: Jan 12, 2016 6:11 AM

    Dude that strength of schedule bs is getting old. Look at the Panthers avg margin of victory against those “weak” teams, compare that to Seattles avg margin of victory vs “weak” opponents, condidering the Seahawks lost to a few “weak” teams shouldn’t be hard to calculate.

  54. pinkmist4 says: Jan 12, 2016 6:13 AM

    They’re 15-1 and beat the Hawks, why WOULDN’T he think they’re better? Much ado about nothing……

  55. mlander12 says: Jan 12, 2016 6:28 AM

    This sounds a lot like they’re trying to convince themselves. Seattle in week 6 was a lot less pressure, we’ll see what they can do when all the pressures on them. They have the talent and the coaching, do they have the mental toughness.

  56. noteamforlosangeles says: Jan 12, 2016 6:29 AM

    Dear Roman,

    We too thought we had the better team, until we had to play the game. We thought it was going to be a historic season…and it was for the wrong reason

    Yours Truly,

    The 2011 15-1 (and done) Green Bay Packers.

  57. romophobic says: Jan 12, 2016 6:38 AM

    If you think professional athletes need “bulletin board” material then you clearly don’t understand professional athletes. And, if a professional athlete does indeed need “bulletin board” material then they should be cut.

    “All that hard work and success by the Panthers throughout the regular season can disappear in three hours on Sunday afternoon. ”
    ****************************
    Wrong! Not even a loss can subtract from what the franchise has built. It’s a process and a playoff loss can’t take that away. You simply get up and keep going in the right direction, the next chance you get.

    Actually, he should play from a position of strength and let the play do the talking. As a vet, Harper should know that.

    Your thought process is ridiculous. Some of your questions that your own ego answered are incorrect.

    The Panthers played and beat 4 playoff teams. Seattle played 5 playoff teams and lost to 4 of them. Also, at the time of each game the Panthers played, there were 4 teams at or above .500. For the season, the Panthers played 6 teams at or above .500 and beat them all.

    There was also no beatdown. The Falcons won by a touchdown.

    As for the Seahawks, they also played 6 teams at or above .500 and lost to 4 of them.

    Furthermore, the Panthers have 1 NFC title and have lost in two other NFC Championship games. One was to Seattle in 2005.

    As for the officials handing games to the Panthers, please give all the examples.

    And, you are correct, time will tell!

    #KEEP POUNDING!

    Oh, and your grammar is terrible.

  62. junkmtb says: Jan 12, 2016 8:17 AM

  63. jmethane says: Jan 12, 2016 8:20 AM

    Zimmer showed you how to shut down their offense. Now just score some TDs and it’s yours.

    ——-

    Now all they have to do is figure out how to make N.C. -6 degrees.

  64. jmethane says: Jan 12, 2016 8:25 AM

    What’s with the Johnny come lately fans proclaiming Carolina already claimed their nfc throne? Congrats on the regular season title but that was just for seeding. The hard work is yet to be done.

    You have to win two more games to rightly claim the nfc throne. Until the the Seahawks are still the back to back nfc champions.

    Win a ring and you will get it. That was only the regular season.

  65. jmethane says: Jan 12, 2016 8:31 AM

    Actually I guess you will “get it” with a loss on Sunday as well. The regular season can only get you into the playoffs, it cannot win you the superbowl.

    Just ask pats fans…they were undefeated until eli…a helmet catch….and tears.

  66. slashbond says: Jan 12, 2016 8:32 AM

    what is nineball26 even talking about? go back to school, get some history lessons and comeback to repost.

    Panthers have 1 NFC title
    Harper has a superbowl win

    as far as teams they played…?

    at the time green bay was the only over .500 team

    At the end of the season there are
    shehawks 10-6
    GB 10-6
    Washington 9-7
    Houston 9-7

    and lost to ATL who is 8-8

    so what are you talking about?

  67. kitmandew says: Jan 12, 2016 8:47 AM

    I’m just wondering if any of the Seahag fans on here are men? Never seen so much whining and fussing, I can’t wait to see how many of you whiners show up after Sunday. As far as who we played and beat…. How about the fact that we beat three teams that are NFC playoff teams, shut up and come take your medicine……again! Keep Pounding!

  68. realdealsteel says: Jan 12, 2016 9:06 AM

    Keep talking Harper. Just keep talking.

    Like the Seahawks are not already motivated by your fluke win over them earlier in the season. Just keep talking.

    He’s completely right.

    Minnesota’s D SHUT DOWN Seattle on all but one miracle play. That play, along with the AP fumble and the shanked FG are the only three plays that allowed Seattle to win a game they did not deserve…again.

    Carolina won’t be settling for field goals this weekend.

  78. krm62015 says: Jan 12, 2016 12:01 PM

    I would love to see Newton play in that temp, it was the 3rd lowest temp of a playoff game ever. Carolina fans need to realize that the weather played a huge factor into the play by both teams. They also need to realize that Kam Chancellor was still getting into game shape when they met earlier in the year from his selfish holdout, and that Wagner did not play in that game at all. This is gonna be a close game decided on the final play.

    Dude, are you OK?

    I would love for people to do their homework and research the players on this Panthers team…. You would have to be a sick person to not at least appreciate them for being good human beings. Add in that they actually enjoy playing the game, which somehow makes people hate them. I’m proud to call myself a Panthers fan and do not underestimate the chemistry this locker room has.

    Why do people hate them? Because they enjoy playing the game? Because they enjoy winning? Because they have the BEST record in the league? I don’t know, they seem like a really tight group of guys to me. No, they are not my team, but I’ve been keeping my eye on them and they’re fun to watch. I wish them the BEST of luck from here on out. And yes, Panther fans should be proud of their team!!!

    This is stupid.

    It’s going to be a great game. Nothing can really be taken from the game in Minnesota because that game was played in such adverse conditions. I have no problem with the Panthers talking. They are 15-1. They should be (and are) the favorite. That said, they should also forget about the win over the Seahawks earlier in the year because that was a long time ago and the Seahawks defense is playing much better since Cary Williams was let go.

    The Vikings should’ve won last week. Period. But, they didn’t.

    Here we are. The best matchup of Divisional weekend.

    Go Hawks.

    You realize Seattle has a better offense than the Giants and the Falcons right?

    Sure, I’ll give you that. As long as you realize Carolina has a better offense and defense than the Vikings.

    So many people completely forgetting that that was a -6 degree game. Or the people that aren’t forgetting have never felt it and somehow think it’s no big deal and just a little bit colder than freezing.

    That game was a straight up test of mental fortitude and will to survive it wasn’t a football game.

    Earl Thomas said his feet and hands were completely numb and frozen the whole game. How are athletes supposed to perform like that? You wonder why Russell Wilson was inaccurate and overthrowing his receivers? He had bare hands in -6 degree weather give me a break.

    I understand many of you have never felt sub-zero temperatures and don’t understand I don’t hold it against you. Myself I wouldn’t want to be out in it more than about 5 minutes wearing a down parka. Even then my nose hairs are going to freeze and I hate that.

    Did you see zimmer and caroll’s faces? They look like they had been on a North Pole expedition. They look like they at all just got done climbing Mount Everest not playing a football game.

    When was the last time an offense led the league in scoring and rushing attempts?

    Offense yes, Defense? You may want to go look at that.

    so I guess he was right….

  89. vikingforlife says: Jan 17, 2016 6:54 PM

    As so many of us were trying to tell so many of you!!!!!

  90. lapantherfan86 says: Jan 20, 2016 6:19 PM

    I meant Roman Harper was right.

    Beastmode was completely wrong, as were “so many of you” if you thought the Vikes had a better D than the Panthers. Carolina was ranked higher than Minnesota in every single defensive category, so I’m not sure what you guys wanted me to go look at…
