It was a fun ride today watching the Cardinals beat the Seahawks, but there is NO chance in hell of the Seahawks dropping two in a row to end the season at home. The Seahawks have the loudest stadium in North America, there is no way a team led by Kellen Clemens beats the Seahawks.
But here's a bigger and more pressing issue: this is the definition of a trap game for the Panthers this week. We saw what happened after the 49ers and Patriots games on the road against the Dolphins. This whole fan base and this entire team treated today like the Super Bowl. They know the playoffs are coming. Meanwhile, the Georgia Dome has been the worst place in the NFL for us to play traditionally and stopping us from a 2 seed is the only thing the Falcons have left to play for. ALL this plus it's likely that 89 doesn't play.
In fact, I'm so convinced the Panthers won't win the #1 seed that I'll donate $100 to charity if they do. It would be a nice story, but I just don't see it happening.
