  • That pass Jake threw to Proehl (I think) to come from behind vs the Jags when he came in for Peete.
  • Kris Jenkins blocked what would be the winning extra point at the end of the game vs Tampa Bay one year and sent the game to overtime--we won it.
  • Deshaun Foster's 1-yard run vs Philly in the NFC championship game
  • Moose's long TD reception in super bowl 38.
  • Sam Mills interception that led to the first team victory vs the Jets (I think).

- X clown for sure.  Remember being at a friends house and we were supposed to be heading out to a party but the game kept going and we sat there in amazement.  I had no faith that we could win that game before it started, special moment for sure 

- few weeks before that versus the Cowboys in the wild card round.  First playoff game I attended, was at night, Madden and then hank Williams jr on the big screen before the game as it was an ABC broadcast and thus included all the MNF stuff.  As a teenager that was special.

- then obviously the NFC championship.  A surreal experience to be there for that one.  The domination of the game, The trophy presentation, then walking back to the hotel with cars honking and everyone in uptown pumped up.  Ready to get back to the playoffs and make some morE memories

A twist on the JAG's post..

Obviously the SB years will be top moments for people but what are some of your favorite/most impactful memories you have as your time as a panther fan?

X-Clown and it's not even close.

I'll skip the obvious and more recent ones.

I'll go back to the second year in 1996 when we beat San Francisco twice to win the NFC West.

And then when we went up 7-0 on the frozen tundra in Green Bay on the Collins to Howard Griffith td pass in the NFC title game, I thought for a moment, "Holy crap! We might go to the Super Bowl in our second year."

Of course it was all down hill in that game from there.

X-Clown is the #1, like a lot folks have said. It was such a roller coaster of emotions watching that game, and in the end that play was almost cathartic to watch. Simply amazing from start to finish and St Louis was one of the toughest places to play in that time.

Another one that is still a favorite of mine, which @pantherclaw alluded to that most of the younger generation may not remember or even know about, is the playoff beatdown we gave the Cowboys back in 97. All week long they'd been running their mouths about how they would easily run over the speedbump in Carolina, and their Coach Swizzlestick even went so far as to say he "had never traveled this far South for a playoff game." Complete disrespect for the team, its fans, and the area as a whole. So you can imagine how much fun it was to break their Superbowl dynasty like we did.

During the game, Irvin broke his collarbone after being tackled by Lathon and I can't remember who did it, but watching Neon Deion get knocked out cold was kind of satisfying, as he'd been running his mouth since his days with Atlanta non-stop. It was pretty much a landmark victory that put our team on the map, and made for one heck of a proud moment for us brand spanking new Panther fans. Great game and one of my favorites for sure.

 

Here's an article about the game I found interesting and well-written:

and not really a good memory but memorable…

A desperate Carolina team with no QB…called a 43 year old off his couch and with only a handful of days of prep….he became the oldest QB to ever win a NFL game.

I still remember the 2008 game vs the Bucks. Where we racked up 300 yards rushing.. I was watching that game with my buddy who is a Bucks fan and it was the best time.. it birthed one of the best stiff arms ever..

MNF game, i was at this game watching from the nosebleeds. It was pure dominance against the Bucks.

My #1 is opening day 2003.  I went with my family.  I mean we rolled in deep, 15-20 of us.  We (and 73,000) boo'd Rodney Peete and his -1 yards passing in the first half off the field.  Fast forward to 4th & 12 and that was the first time I ever felt the Earth move beneath my feet.
