they did a top 10 divisional round moments, and the panthers were number 8. given the round i think many of you could figure out which play they picked. Double OT. vs the rams. yeah. Jake to Steve on the X-clown for the touchdown. its one of those plays i could watch over and over.

I might just be a Panther homer but I would have guessed that would have been closer to the top. I have not seen the segment however.

there's a lot of older plays closer to the top.

Just saw that! That play made me lose at least a half a beer on my couch! Definately one of the greatest plays in Panther history!

Nice....drinking in the A.M. Who ever said that beer isnt a breakfast beverage?

haha, i think he meant back when he watched it live.

i bloodied my knuckles jumping up off the sofa and hitting them on the low, popcorn-paint ceiling in my mom's basement. i dont think i realized it for a few minutes due to all the excitement.

Did not see the segment either, but it is a travesty to hear that play wasn't top 5. Further evidence of the Anti-Panthers bias in the MSM.

Since we're sharing our "where were you stories" about that game, I guess I'll share mine. I was driving down to my uncle's house just outside of Washington DC that night (staying there for the night, on the way driving down to NC from Rhode Island). But these were the pre-GPS days, and I got extremely lost near his house. So I had to listen to all of regulation and the first three or four minutes of overtime in the car -- you can't imagine how agonizing it was being lost AND hearing the Panthers blow that 11-point lead.

But all's well that end's well -- found the place in time to catch most of the first overtime, and Smitty's game-winner. Good times.

Yeah that play is definitely one of those, "where were you when..." moments as a Panthers fan. I remember it pretty well. I had to work and I was working on an assembly line for Ford. I had a small color TV set up at my workstation for the game. It's hard to work and do the job at the same time so I'd miss some plays here and there, but during the overtimes I had our upgrader (who is kind of like a utility worker who knows all the jobs in our section) cover my job while I watched the overtime. When Smitty caught that ball, I was yelling so loud that the supervisor thought someone had gotten mangled in the line or something.

I lost my voice for 3 days. Had to take 3 days off of work because I worked at a call center. Well worth it.
