notes on government, sports and popular culture
So if the Panthers
make the playoffs, who's going to want to play them? Especially with a defensive line that makes like Julius Peppers did against Atlanta and Kindal Moorehead did against Tampa Bay.
Philadelphia? They suddenly look vulnerable, especially since they've lost their not-so-secret weapon, T.O. It will be interesting to see how they perform against the Rams tonight.
Atlanta? Despite the heartbreaking loss, the Panthers will definitely not be scared. Michael Vick took a beating despite pulling the game out, so he'll be hearing footsteps.
Green Bay? The first game of the season seems like a decade ago. Green Bay's offense is inconsistent, and their defense was way too porous, even against the top-rated Vikings offense.
Minnesota? Figure it out: Tampa Bay has the NFC's second-best defense. Minnesota has the NFC's second-worse defense. So the Panthers would be able to match the Vikings point-for-point and make some key defensive stops.
St. Louis and Seattle? Both teams are struggliong to get into the playoffs, while the Panthers are at the top of their game.
The Panthers have to get there first. I don't see them losing at home agaisnt the Saints.......
