Getting lucky: Who we want to win

2 posts in this topic


Forget the "Yeah but I am a true fan and I want the Panthers to win regardless of draft" nonsense. I will trade a meaningless win in 2010 for a Super Bowl ring in 2012. This is for those who are simply cheering for Panthers to lose so they can get a franchise QB who will make the Panthers great for the next decade.

Since there is such a large difference between the Panthers and the Broncos, there is no need to factor them in the Strength of schedule / "Who do I root for?" list. Instead, the games that would cause separation with Cincinnati are considered, along with the obvious Denver/Texans pick.

This Week:

New Orleans vs. Atlanta: Unless you want the Panthers to play the Atlanta bench in week 17, pull for New Orleans

New York Giants vs. Green Bay: We played NY, and neither Carolina nor Cincinnati played Green Bay. The Packers need to win.

Seattle vs. Tampa Bay: We play Tampa Bay twice, Seattle once. Root for Seattle

Houston vs. Denver: Of course, a Denver win and a Panther loss eliminates Denver from any shot at the first overall selection. Go Broncos

Pittsburgh vs Carolina is a big game this week because it is against us. A Steeler victory counts once against the Bengals because they played us and we lost. However, it counts twice against the Bengals because the Steelers play Cincy twice. Of course, a win would hurt the Panthers two ways.

Miami vs. Detroit: Since the Lions are not on the Panthers nor the Bengals' schedule and Miami is on the Bengals schedule only, root for Miami to win.

Indianapolis vs. Oakland: Since the Panthers nor the Bengals play the Raiders and the Bengals played Indy, pull for Indy.

NY Jets vs. Chicago: Pull for the Jets. NY played Cincinnati and we played the Bears.

San Diego vs. Cincinnati: Root for Cincinnati because a win with a Panther loss to Pittsburgh eliminates the Bengals from getting the #1 pick,


Miami 3.5 over Detroit

Indianapolis 3 over Oakland

Chicago 1 over NY Jets

San Diego 7 over Cincinnati

Atlanta 2.5 over New Orleans

Pittsburgh 13.5 over Carolina

Tampa Bay 6 over Seattle

Houston 3 over Denver

Green Bay 2.5 over NY Giants
