Panthers/Saints

I've been coming to this site as a guest for the past two years now and have finally decided to create an account. Before I start my initial post I would like to say that while I am only 21 I have been following this team since Steve Buerline (spelling) and Barry Foster. Can't exactly player came first because of my age at the time, so I am quite familiar with the franchise.

I watched the Saints/Falcons game tonight unsure of which team to pull for due to the underachieving this team has been through this season. I watched Sportscenter, NFL Primetime, and Sportscenter (in that order after the game) and for the first time this season actually became upset about how the Panthers are being overlooked for this weekend's matchup. Granted everyone up until the Patriots game is as well. But something that should be of note is that the home team has not won in this matchup since these teams hae met in the 2001-2002 season. (I looked this up on ESPN.com)

With that said I'm hoping for good things in the matchup in what I consider is a must win game. Given the way the Saints have played this season I'm a bit worried but I believe if we play the way we've played the since the 2nd half of the Redskins game (minus the turnovers of course) I'm starting to believe winning the division is not too far fetched at this point despite being down 4 games. It's going to take some work and there is a small margin of error, starting this week.

Re: Panthers/Saints

Welcome to the Growl, and you are exactly right in the sense that this game is a muust win if we are to advance any further than the regular season.  I hope the win Sunday will put us on a tear through the rest of the schedule that will allow us to gain momentum and take it into the playoffs if we get there.

Its far fetched but very possible.

Re: Panthers/Saints

and another welcome to you.  I agree that this would be an important win to get into the playoffs.  If we can win Sunday, we will be at 4-4 and looking at a chance to pass ATL up for a WC spot.  Because if it comes to a tie we have the breaker due to strength of schedule.

Welcome! Well just heard J Clayton say...NO has the perfect set up to be unbeaten going into the NE game...AS THEY HAVE 3 EASY GAMES leading into the NE game...could careless about 2 of the 3 teams but JC certainly doesn't think much of Carolina...PO'ed about this prospective...but it is a good setup for a NO fall and HUGE PANTHER W....No one thinks they can beat NO...kind of like last year when no one thought AZ could beat Carolina!!!

Re: Panthers/Saints

Everyone is drinking the N.O. koolaid right now, which is cool, but they should not forget that N.E. went 18-1 last year.  Its not about going undefeated in the regular season.  Its about winning the one the matters the most. I'm not expecting a win SUnday, but if the same team shows up Sunday that did against AZ the Saints are going to be in for one hell of a surprise.

Re: Panthers/Saints

I think right now, the Saints are primed for the perverbial "Trap" game against us. They had to have a big comeback against Miami and Atl took them to the brink last night. Those are 2 huge, emotionally draining games. Not sure they can do it 3 weeks in a row. Atl exposed the run game against them, too. If we can keep it close in the 4th Qtr, a "W" is definitly possible.
