- Don't want to face them. I'm sick of hearing about Matt Ryan. Falcons lose, the Panthers get either the Cards or the Vikings, and the media is forced to shut up about Ryan.
- Don't want to face them. They lose, Giants get the Eagles, who probably have a better chance of knocking off the Giants than any other lower seed.
- I'd like to see the NFC Championship Game be played in Charlotte. I couldn't care less about a "rematch" against them. I'd much rather have a home NFC Championship Game. But wherever the game is played, I think the Panthers match up better against the Giants than they do with the Vikings (Peterson) or Falcons (Ryan and Turner), so they're third on my list.
It may seem like a "no brainer," but this question actually requires strategic thinking.
