Is the Falcons game a "must win"for Panthers?

95 posts in this topic

Just FYI, there was a poll up on NFL.com just now asking which 3-0 team will stay undefeated the longest, the Foulcunts, the Texans or the Cardinals. To be honest, I expected the masses to pick Atlanta, but it was like 56% Houston, 25% Atlanta, 19% Arizona or something like that.

I don't think them being undefeated so far makes this game any more of a must win. I would say however, that we've got to beat either the Falcons or the Seahawks as going 2-3 into the bye week is a lot more manageable than 1-4. I'm banking on us winning both though.

FYI I don't give a rusty red rat's rectum what the NFL.com poll numbers are. NFL.com's polls, comments and/or predictions might be interesting to those who are desperately looking for something to get reassurance from, but in the final analysis, it doesn't mean diddly squat in the real world.

I certainly would never want to see Matt Ryan get hurt, but if it were to happen, I'm pretty sure Dominick Davis, our rookie QB, would be plenty enough to handle things vs Scam the Pouter.

If we want a prayer of contending in the NFC South, then yeah, we need to beat the Falcons. They are the team to beat.

When was the last time you won a playoff game?

Regular season doesn't mean poo.....0 playoff wins is 0 playoff wins. The Panther franchise is a baby....and they already have matched what you have done in your long history in the postseason.

If you want to give Mike Smith and Matty Ice an award for meaningless regular season wins.....have at it. All they do is get their breaks beat off when it matters

It's been so long, you probably don't remember, but in fact regular season wins DO matter, because that's the way you actually GET to the play-offs, which is something you people won't even get within shouting distance of again until about 2025. Peyton Manning lost three play-offs before he got his Super Bowl rings. Face the bitter truth; the Falcons are at or near the top and will win several Super Bowls before your team even gets above .500 again. Good try, dude. Thanks for playing.

Only matters of it leads to something....which it hasn't for the Falcons.

Manning won playoff games....before he finally got a ring.

Good try. Carolina has more recent playoff wins than your team. So again, beat your chest over regular season wins.....that is all you got.

And as I stated before....we have been around only since 95.....and already have matched your postseason success.....THAT is how pathetic your franchise is. You do realize in reality....that makes our franchise more successful and I don't see that changing big picture.

We both know with Noodle Ice and your stone handed recievers you will never do anything noteworthy. But you deserve he right to bask in the glory of your regular wins.

We had offensive and a defensive coordinators who couldn't put a winning play-off game plan together if their jobs depended on it, and as a consequence they got replaced by quality coaches.

Yeah, um....you don't think Mike Smith was in on all that?

I guess ole Mike has nothing to do with getting beat by an average of 18 pts a game in the postseason.

All lot of people here are vastly over estimating the Falcons just like they vastly under estimated the Giants. They are our division foe, I'll be very surprised if its not a close game.
