What in the actual fug are you even doing on this forum? Your handle is tarheels, your avatar is a panther player, yet in a week's time you've done nothing but talk down the Panthers?
You are obviously a troll fan from some poor team watching SB50 from their couches, my guess is some scrub ass AFC team since when you're not trashing the Panthers you're trashing the NFC (like the AFC East/South/West hasn't been hot garbage for basically the past 14 years, with 3 good teams and 9 others always fighting for 2nd place in their division.)
Talk about us only making it to the Superbowl because we played the AFCS and NFCE, check Manning's glorious 2013 year and the last time he went to the Superbowl and that's the same divisions he played that year.
2013 Manning and the offense sent them to the Superbowl and then fizzled out while the defense did nothing to help. 2015 Manning let his defense and the backup qb carry them to the Superbowl, because he sure as fug did nothing to get them there.
The biggest difference between us and the 2013 Broncos that feasted on the NFCE and AFCS? We feasted on both sides of the ball, and our whole team took us to SB50.
And before you talk about second half stats, you should realize that stats belong on paper, the game is played on the field. Had you watched any of our games this year, you would realize the only reason any of those teams made any sort of progress in the second half, was because the coaching staff always switched to the conservative, grind the clock and play not to lose game plan. Thankfully, we abandoned that after our first playoff game when we allowed Seattle to score way too many points in our conservative game plan. It was OK during the regular season, but understanding every game could be the last in January and keeping the foot on the gas during the second half was a must......and you see how that ended for the Cardinals.
I fully expect them to be full throttle for 60 minutes on Sunday and fug the respect for the Sheriff, I hope they drop at least 50 in SB50.
