Eh, if that happens I'm not too worried.

Now, if it does happen, and the Giants and Bears win out, and the NFC West turns into a wrecking crew while the Patriots implode and drop their last three along with the Chargers and Colts, well then I'm worried.

But for what's likely to happen, I'm not. The Panthers will win, the Bengals will lose, and at the end of the season their opponents will have around 152-156 combined wins while the Panthers' will have between 148 and 152.

So, the Panther higher limit will be where the Bengals lower limit is. Assuming they're tied, then the NFL will go to the divisional tie breaker methods to see if any is applicable. Since they played, the very first divisional tie breaker method, head to head, will be used. And the Bengals beat us.

And yes, I know they're not in the same division. But the rules say methods, meaning that they'll proceed down that path after the Strength of Schedule is worked out.

No worries, unless we win two of our last three.

Edit: I'll add that if you don't buy the head to head thing, all of the other tiebreakers that may be applicable are about points scored and points allowed. Given our 12.6 points per game average, something fairly drastic would have to happen to lose that one.

I think the Huddle will implode if we don't end up with the first pick after watching this thing that passes for a season.

Naw...

The REALLY awesome implosion comes when they get the first pick, Luck declares, and we trade down for picks. :)

If that happens I imagine I wouldn't sleep for a week.

    • Elbows too pointy. Would not bang.
    • On the surface this team seems greatly improved but in reality we added a geriatric at DE and SS. Our LT is bad enough that the Vikings thought getting Remmers in return was an upgrade, and our greatly improved offense includes a rookie RB who dominated the 5th best college conference and a hybrid RB/WR who isn't good enough to stick at either position. That being said, I'm hopeful it works out.
    • First, let me say that I pretty much only watch the NBA during the playoffs (or when I'm absolutely bored and channel surfing, which is very very seldom). I am really a fan of players and coaches and not necessarily teams except for the Spurs. That being said, I do support the Hornets as they are a North Carolina team---the "home" team, if you will.  The problem is I don't see any way that they will credibly compete for a championship (because they really haven't come close in franchise history). Gone are the days of Grand Ma Ma and Dell Curry, but even then one would be hard pressed to really believe. Unless they happen to draft a legitimate, and I mean legitimate, superstar that wants to be here, I can't see it. I go from year to year in June saying "Perhaps this is the year," but reality sets in during December.  Well, perhaps this is the year that they at least become credible. Monk was arguably the best pure shooter in the draft. Can he create his own shot---break 'em down and break some ankles to be a legitimate point guard or 2-guard? We will see. Bacon may be underrated. We will see. Does the other Superman in Charlotte have enough juice to make a credible run and get the Hornets over the hump. I don't know.  It's just hard to believe that the Hornets will actually become truly relevant when you look at their history, and that has to really suck as a hardcore fan.
