Probably, haha. I'm thinking if they don't get some help defensively, they are a one and done team this year though, no matter who they play in the first round.

Yeah, right now I expect both South teams to be the weakest playoff team in both conferences, although the Falcons could at least put up a respectable fight and might sneak away with one as a result.

I think both the Falcons and the Panthers will make the playoffs and both teams have enough talent to win at least one playoff game.  The Falcons have a good enough offense to win a playoff game the Panthers have a good enough defense to win a playoff game.



Is it really going to be another one of those weeks?

Could not disagree more about the Panthers. They've looked bad on all sides of the ball, and their defeat of the Jaguars, Texans, Saints, and Bucs (combined record to date: 4-17) does not persuade me otherwise. If they beat the Packers, I might start to come around. They MIGHT still make the playoffs, because they will play fourteen of their games against the NFC South, AFC South, and NFC East, but that would be a Strength Of Schedule wildcard team, not a quality playoff team.

I agree that the Panthers look bad, but...have many teams looked better? I wouldn't be surprised if they get the wild card as all, especially with their schedule of theirs.

Frankly, it could not be any more of an embarrassment of a year, competition-wise, for the NFL, esp. in the year they'll be celebrating SB 50.  As I've said before, the cherry on top of this year, would be Goodell having to give Kraft another Lombardi (not saying it WILL happen...just that it'd be a cherry on top).

Fair point. I'd say the Seahawks, Rams, Vikings, Bears, Giants, and post-injury Cowboys are all as good or better than the Panthers, but none of those guys get the same liquid soft schedule as the Panthers. I don't see them beating any of the conference leaders, though.
