Came across this just now. Anybody remember this crazy points differential scenario? Being ten at the time, the only thing I understood was that the Panthers had to outscore Green Bay. Really fun day despite coming out on the "losing" end after everything played out.

NFL used to be fun. Remember when you could celebrate after a touchdown?

i think the point scenario still exists it just rarely is needed. And Jake Delhome is a saints Jersey. UGH

Yep.  It is so incredibly rare.  Very exciting, though.

That offense was on fire that year. Jeffers and Beuerlein.

Does anyone know why we had to outscore green bay? From what i remember we beat them so we shouldve had some kind of tiebreaker right?

A quick check shows 5 teams at 8-8 of which the lions beat us and we beat packers. 

 

I guess it was just one of those "it will never happen anyway" tie breaker rules that had to be used. Still it beats a coin toss...

    • I do think Kpassagnon is an interesting prospect that needs to be in the right situation to thrive. It just so happens that we have one of the best 6'7" defensive ends in the history of the NFL on a reunion tour with us in 2017 and maybe if need be, 2018 if he holds up.   Kpassagnon's attitude and work ethic is strong and tireless. His 3-cone and vert scare me for a defensive end, and that's not something you can teach. Being able to bend and explode off the snap to beat OL is not something that Peppers can show him, but maybe Peppers can show how to use athleticism to his advantage.  I can see him being just another Michael Johnson/Erik Armstead player or I could also see the environment here in Carolina benefiting him and he becomes a Carlos Dunlap kind of lanky DE that causes headaches along our DL. Kpassagnon's spider web looks amazing and awful all at the same time. I'd take him in this draft, but "where" is the big question.
