From the end of the 03-04 season.

First up, a synopsis of the divisional game against the Rams.




Second, an NFL Films review of both the Ram and Eagle games.




And last, the entire overtime period from the Rams game, right up through X-Clown.




A little analysis from clip three:

A lot has been made of it before, but it's worth mentioning again. One of the big turns of the game is near the end of regulation when Mike Martz makes an absolutely terrible decision to pull back the reins and go for the tie rather than the win. At game's end, the Rams were surging and the Panthers were on their heels. had Martz been a better decision maker, they might have won (but then that's why Martz is lousy as a head coach, isn't it?)

On the Ricky Manning interception (just after 39:00) watch the reverse angle replay. Marc Bulger had the opportunity to throw to a wide open Torry Holt but hesitated, instead gesturing for Holt to move further outside, but Holt doesn't go all that far. That hesitation is what gives Ricky Manning the chance to step in front of Holt and make the pick. If Bulger has a little more confidence and throws the ball at his first opportunity, that interception doesn't happen and the result of the game is likely very different.

And last, the moment everyone will automatically gravitate to occurs at a little after the 43 minute mark. When you watch the replays, look at Steve Smith's eyes. As he's running, there is a look on his face of something between uncertainty and fear almost right up until the moment he crosses the goal line. It's not until the last that he realizes nobody is going to catch him, elation rolls over his face like a river and his arms spread wide in triumph.

Good memories indeed :D

My favorite memory is watching the Panthers beat the Dallas Cowboys in the 1996 postseason. I'll post the hulu link but there are commercials.

This Dallas team was loaded with Hall of Famers and we dominated them.

Well, Jason Sehorn did at least make a valiant effort.

(okay, maybe it wasn't all that valiant) :lol:

I remember during the second half of the 2003 Cowboy game, ABC ran a couple of segments with Jerry Jones talking about his hiring of Bill Parcells. It was pretty clear those were made with the expectation that the Cowboys would be winning the game big by the time they were aired. Given the way it actually played out, they made little to no sense, but they chose to run them anyway :lol:

The following week, some analyst (I forget who) wrote an article predicting how all the games for the Divisional Weekend were going to be barnburners, except one. He believed the Rams would "throttle the Panthers". As I recall though, most of the other games were snoozers, and ours was designated by NFL Films as their "Game of the Year".

The doubters just made it that much more satisfying :D

lol nice

Later, an emotional Lathon stood on the field and let the Cowboys have it, shouting to anyone in earshot, “So now I propose a question to you, Barry Switzer, while you’re sitting at home next week! Do you know where Charlotte, North Carolina is now, baby?!”


Pre-internet, going to be rough to find the vid but here's something thatll take you back to that 1.
