Kurt Coleman says Panthers don’t notice the pressure


It seemed on Sunday night as if the Cardinals wilted under the pressure of playing for a berth in the Super Bowl while the Panthers embraced it. The more accurate explanation could be that the Panthers didn’t even notice it.

Appearing on Tuesday’s PFT Live on NBC Sports Radio, Panthers safety Kurt Coleman explained that the team is so focused on getting better that the pressure that comes from climbing higher is an afterthought.

“We’ve been built all season to withstand everything,” Coleman said. “You go on a fourteen-game [winning] streak that’s not easy. There’s a lot of pressure that comes with that and we haven’t even just noticed the pressure because we’re worried about ourselves. We’re worried about getting better each and every week and that’s really been the motto throughout the season is find a way to get better.”

Coleman had plenty of other great stuff, including an explanation of his momentum-changing interception at the end of the first half, how many requests for tickets he already has gotten, and whether he’d prefer that the Panthers be underdogs in the Super Bowl. You can catch it all below.

    Nothing like talking about something you don’t notice.

    Nice comeback season for a guy who’s spent most of his career making a highlight film entitled “Exactly what not to do when playing safety during play action”

    But he always had a nose for the ball (assuming he wasn’t 15 yards out of position because of PA) and a knack for big plays. Always good to see guys improve on their weak points, happy to see him having a great year

    All these Buckeyes on both teams in the Super Bowl. No coincidence. They’ve been exceptional players for years. Go Bucks!

    ….why…why…why the Eagles EVER let this kid go, I’ll never know. He played with toughness in the secondary we’ve never been able to replace since Dawkins.
