Despite being 11-0, the Carolina Panthers still have a tremendous amount of naysayers. And the team knows it.
Davis was referring to a recent article on ESPN's FiveThirtyEight that pegged Carolina as the doormat of history's 11-0 clubs.
"Who knows? Maybe they need a story, maybe they need something to talk about other than how well we've been playing. They'd rather talk about what we can't do and what we shouldn't be able to do at this point and how bad we are," the linebacker said.
"It's something that's extremely tough to do in this league. You have so many good football teams in the NFL ... each week there's so many different teams trying to knock you off, and for us to be in this position right now is truly special and you enjoy every minute of it," Davis said.
While it is an accomplishment to start 11-0, Davis and company realize all of the negative talk gives them extra bulletin board material.
"Keep going out and playing like we've been playing and win football games. All we care about right now is the guys in this locker room and how we go out and perform, and that's all that matters to us," he added.
