This is the most excited I have ever been for a home playoff game. I was too young to understand the significance of 1996 and the home games in 2003 and last year were more expected given our record throughout the year.
In terms of overall games, this is probably the 3rd most excited I've ever been behind the 2003 NFC Championship Game and Super Bowl.
I am too scarred by the 2008 Cardinals game (which I think is unequivocally the most disappointing game in Panthers history) to look too far ahead, but it does seem like there is something a little magical about the season the likes which we haven't seen since 2003.
I will be rocking it down in 541 on Saturday come rain or shine, and I hope this is the start of something special.
And 2 PT returns for TD given up, awful coverage on the ones that weren't blocked, and fair catches/ no returns on the punts we received.
Complete failure on special teams. And while I'm not going to list the laundry list of issues when ST stood out as this hideously bad, 0-5 after a bye week is an indictable record.
Seriously, both Philly after the game and Minny during half time referenced major special teams issue they spotted on film and exploited. Our coaches didn't see that and correct during the bye week??!!
That seriously was a top 10 and maybe top 5 worst Special Teams performance in NFL history
