What a strange NFL season this has been. It is the kind of season that just might allow for a previously 0-2 team to make the playoffs.

With a record of 1-2, the Panthers are second in their division and definitely still in the playoff hunt.

Here are the Panthers upcoming October games....

@ Cardinals (2-2)
@ Vikings (1-3)
Rams (1-3)
@ Bucs (0-4)

Every single one of these games should be a Panthers victory and put the Panthers at a 5-2 record heading into November. Heck, just winning the first two would give Ron Rivera his first taste of being over .500 in his head coaching career.

It seems the football gods have smiled favorably on the Panthers this season.

That said, Panthers fans are currently at a crossroads. While the home game against the Giants was a huge morale booster, there is still worry for a let down. We are accustomed to seeing this Panthers team play down to the level of the competition and not win the games that they should win.

It all starts Sunday against the Cardinals, which I am calling a must win. This Panthers team MUST go on the road and win if they want to convince the fan base they are for real this year. After all, Ron Rivera is 0-2 after a bye week. A loss is very possible.

Give them nothing. But take from them everything.

Now that Rivera's job is guaranteed through the season, it will be interesting to see if he goes back to scared coaching.

This game is definitely going to dictate the tone for the rest of the season. If we lose this game, it would take a Super Bowl victory to convince me that Rivera shouldn't be canned.

Dear Friend,


It is Monday morning coming off a bye week that was preceded by this Panther team destroying a NY Giant team led by a 2 time Superbowl winning QB.  This team can go on the road, and do to the Cardinals, the same thing they did to the Giants.  I fully expect for that to happen next Sunday.  I respect your opinion and have no problem with your glass being half empty but mine, on the other hand, is half full.  And by the time game time comes around on Sunday, I, and many other individuals on this board will have glasses that are 100% full.  Most will contain various forms of adult libations but they will be full all the same.


Panthers 42


Cardinals 10

2nd in the division without playing any divisional games. Dont choke.


If we sweep the saints, but they have an overall better record than us, do we win the division or does the best record in the division wins? In other words, does overall record matter, or does the divisional record matter?

Based on the answer we could be practically 0-0
