we've gone at least to the NFCCG in 3 out of 4 playoff appearances. i don't know if that's pathetically awesome or awesomely pathetic.

It's one impressive stat for a below average franchise.

We still have a culture of mediocrity.

When we are good, we are really good. When we are not really good, we are below average. Not much gray area. Problem is that we are "below average" much more often than we are "really good".

This begs the question...Would you prefer to be one and done every year or no playoffs but 1 in every 3/4 years you make the conference title game when you do make it in?

Not surprised, whenever we get there we have success. Minus you know what.

Is that just playoff games not including Super Bowl games?

Actually we're historically more of a 7-9 8-8 9-7 team, which is the definition of mediocrity

Tough questions. One reason I have PSLs is for the chance at a home payoff game. That's the golden egg for me. I went overseas from 2003 to 2009 so missed 2 of them and then bought at the top of the market in summer 2009. Since then we went 23 and 41.

What I really want is a culture of winning. Every team has down years but some seem to get mired in them. I want the confidence going into any season that we can make a run.

Some teams have it. We don't right now.

Actually we've never been 9-7.

And people asking for the source... We were 6-2 postseason at one point (a .750 winning pct - in first place by a huge margin). We've lost our last two postseason games. I'll break it down for you:
1996: beat cowboys, lost to packers
2003: beat cowboys, rams, eagles; lost to patriots
2005: beat giants, bears, lost to seahawks
2008: lost to cardinals.

The wording "Most Winning" in the title was confusing. I thought "most winning" meant "won the most number of games" not "won the highest percentage of games." So when I asked for a source, I was thinking both the Giants and Patriots off the top of my head have a higher number of wins than the Panthers and should therefore be ranked higher.

All clear now?


Edit: spelling

Yes, it should be the highest winning percentage. [url="http://www.profootballhof.com/history/2005/1/1/585/"]Pro Football HOF link[/url]

Just tells me that when we get into the playoffs, we can hold our own.

But [i]getting[/i] to the playoffs is a completely different animal. One has to come before the other.

It's a moot point, otherwise.
