Carolina will not make the playoffs

So after looking at what teams are doing and where we stand, I am convinced we will not make the playoffs.  This is funny bc we stand a better chance of making the playoffs now than when we were 2-4 and I thought then that we would still.  The reason I say this now is bc of the fact that we will have to rely on the wildcard berth without a doubt, and we would need some help.  Yes it is still early but we would need quite a few teams to lose currently we are in 10th.  We do not own any outright tie breakers over the teams ahead of us (although we could still over the Giants).  We could pray the 49ers beat out the Cards for the division (as we own a tie breaker over them) and that we beat the Giants and they do not win their division or that someone beats out Minn and then we beat them and own the tie breaker bc of that.  But this is a very long shot.  As it stands we need at least four teams to finish with a record below us to for sure lock up a playoff spot (as the only one we could get a tie breaker on is the Giants if we beat them when we play).  This is assuming the teams below us currently stay below us.  There is just too much if this then and so on.  Even if we were to win out we would be at best 11-5 and a few of the teams left could be that (even the Giants but we would own the tiebreaker.  There just seems to be waaaaay too many things in play to even realistically think we can do it.  If we had won against Buffalo or NO as we should have (either one) and we are a LOT better off.

Not to mention all the injuries and so on.

Re: Carolina will not make the playoffs

Though I understand your desire to keep things in check, I for one would like to start a tread saying we will make the playoffs. But I do not make predication since they seldom come to fruition. There is no harm saying we will go to the playoffs since we, in fact can actually make it. So i will kindly agree to disagree with the statement above...

Re: Carolina will not make the playoffs

I like to keep reality in check too and I know its a long shot but hope is what keeps the team going and trying hard, and that's something that I have to cling onto as well

Re: Carolina will not make the playoffs

I think everyone knows it's a long shot but for me, I just love this time of the year (football season) and am just going to enjoy watching the panthers play. The season's going to be over with in the blink of an eye and we'll be back to the long off-season.

Re: Carolina will not make the playoffs

Formost i will say that it can be accomplished...this team has faced many setbacks this yr...but if they hang together and keep pounding great things come out of overcoming setbacks!

I do agree that the Buffalo L... really hurt and still does!
I see the problems facing the team not as much of who they play...but more so who they have lost the past two weeks...a team changes when guys like TD and JG are lost for the season...so these losses make the challenge ahead even tougher...very much tougher...but I think it is do-able..it'll take a team playing very well...plus some breaks and good fortune...may be Great Fortune...but they can do this thing!!!!

Re: Carolina will not make the playoffs

jayj is a genius, or thinks he is. Didn't ya'll hear me say this already? Didn't I tell ya'll about the curse? The voodoo that says we cannot go 2 years in a row with winning seasons? I can't explain it but it happens to the best of franchises. Probably has to do with statistical probabilities and formulas mambo jumbo. We were doomed to repeat history. I wish it weren't so but unfortunately it is...
