A WHOLE PIE!

On the sidelines yesterday, there were some people celebrating with a few minutes left. Media type people. I told them the Panthers would lose this game. They laughed at me, said there was no way, and asked why I thought so.

"All I know is this team knows how to lose" I said.

I went on to explain that the offense would fail at trying to run the clock, there would be some mental errors, and V-Jax or Clark would end up winning the game.

They looked in amazement at me as all I said came true, but really, anyone that had been paying a little attention all season long saw it coming.

This losing stench is going to take a few seasons to wash away I am afraid. At this point, one can't help chalk it up to karma for the 2010 intentional tanking of the season by JR.

Pass the bourbon.

When the panthers were up 4 I almost took TB to win for $100 but I hate betting against the Panthers.

That was such a depressing outcome.

they tried hard to give it away. their persistence finally paid off.

they are turning it into an art form.

Oh, and I called the Newton sack on third and long after a holding penalty. To be fair, I think a sack is the most common outcome in that situation.

I agree with all except fo the taking a few seasons to get rid of the losing stench. We lost a bunch of close games in the 1-15 season. Yet, we were in the Superbowl the season in two seasons.

The right combination of new players and and new coaches can turn it around quickly. But finding the right combination is not easy.

Panthers were the last team in my 6 team parlay yesterday. How do you think I felt watching that?

When we took the foot off the pedal that last couple of drives, I knew we were in trouble. Our defense doesn't have the testicular fortitude (yet) to win a game like that. Maybe two or three players and another year will bring the desired result.

Giving up 17 points in 8 minutes of play emphasizes that no lead by the Panthers is safe. But then, we probably already knew that.

I watch now largely devoid of emotion, much as I watch a game between say the Raiders and San Diego. It's still football, but without any emotional investment.

This staff has broken the spirit of the fans just as surely as they've broken the spirits of the players.

No timeouts and they still score. Pro football players just can't allow that to happen.
Good thing I can drown my sorrys a few days from now on Thanksgiving.
