Atlanta and the Chargers could beat them and Oakland would give them a game.

All I know, is that 10-3 will look a hell of a lot better than 9-4 about this time tomorrow. This is the time of year when you want to start playing your best football anyway, and that's what it will take to beat the Bucs.

:iagree:

I can close my eyes and see Chad Cota catching that ball in the end zone .............

The stadium erupts, fans don't leave because we want to feel that way forevah, and the Panthers come out of the locker room to run around the field and celebrate with the fans. :hurray:

I expect the same type of intensity that we have seen in our playoff games. Tempers flaring, bodies flying, Jake pointing and yelling at the Tampa D. Oh hell yeah!

What about the comeback season of 2004 where we could have beat the saints and got a playoff spot. But we lost. I think that game was more important considering that was a "do or die" situation. Even though we chose "die".

I think, in some points, this IS the biggest game. It won't decide a playoff spot, for sure, but it does have some tweaks we've hardly ever seen before:

1. These two teams have never been THIS good before we've they've met. Either they've been okay, or one has been a lot better than the other. But this time, both the Bucs and Panthers are dominant teams, unlike the Panthers-Falcons in '05

2. The division has never been THIS close before. All four teams have winning records, and all for have a chance at the playoffs. A loss here by either teams could decide their fate.

3. A game of this import has never been televised nationally for the Panthers. The eyes of the entire nation are going to be watching a game that may decide the division.

4. It's still the infamous Panthers-Bucs rivalry, the players are more hyped, the fans are more hyped, and I don't see the Giants-Panthers having this sort of excitement.

So while it may or may not decide a playoff spot, it may decide the division, and is probably the most important game we've ever had as far as determining the true strength of both these teams.

yes, if we "lay" down tonight then no more complaining of the non attention from the media. But again, I don't mind the non attention and low expectations.....we seem to thrive on that...doing something that no one thinks we can do. SO, go out and punch them in the mouth, repeatedly, tonight Panthers!

It may not be the most important but the players better play like it at least.

I choose to believe that the Panthers can now "smell it" and will play lights out tonight. That's what I choose to believe...
