That was awesome right there. Who would've thought it would be Delhomme who stopped us from getting into the postseason back then.

I remember that game. Crazy scenario man. Even before the game ended, Buerlein was going around apologizing to the saints and explaining why we were running up the score. I still think our offense in 1999 was the best in our history. The second half of that season was so awesome and I was convinced we were a championship next year. Buerlein was lookin like Payton Manning, two 1000 yd receivers (moose and jeffers), wesley walls caught a TD on what it seemed every other drive....damn I've gotten old :) And let's not forget how hot Timmy B started that year (remember the redskins game when he was on fire before he got pulled to share the ball with Fred lane)

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.

 

Starts at the @4:00 mark:

Very cool to watch!

    • And to think this guy made it through 7 rounds and not one team wanted him.  Thank God Gettleman was on his "A" game and signed him here. Amazing how talent can bypass so many scouts, coaches and GMs. If they did a redraft.   What round would he go to?  Round 1?  He's a solid of a Guard as any in this league.
    • you do realize that $1M pledge he made was after he had received a ton of backlash and outcry from the media for sitting during the national anthem? He did hold his promise and has made some other donations as well, but before he decided to sit at football games, he didn't do jack poo for oppressed communities and the homeless, or any other charities for that matter. He was just a narcissist prima dona who so happened to play for one of the most talented teams in the NFL headed by one of the greatest coaches in the NFL. Him prospering early on in his career made him a cocky SOB who dressed like a thug during press conferences and treated the media like dog poo.  Yes people change, but he changed for the wrong reasons. His career was in turmoil, he was a declining NFL QB trying to stay relevant, so he thought up a rouge to get back in the spotlight by sitting. After he received backlash, he thought to himself "oh crap, I need to back up my words with some action. let me make a few donations to show the world I truly care about what I stand for"  the dude could give a rats ass about any of that poo. He didn't even show up to vote, and I don't think he's ever voted in his life. And I don't care about voting for the president, but at least vote for your local officials and congressman and for your states propositions. If he truly wants to have a voice and use the stage he has to inflict some serious changes in this country, there's a way to go about it, not seek attention for the wrong reasons just to resurrect your career.  
    • I love Moton. The only thing that freaks me out about him is that he played for a small school. I do think he could've flourished for a big time program though.
