Yea, they're finished. 1-5 and they still have games left in Oakland, in Seattle, and vs. the Chiefs and Falcons. Not to mention games left against the Bucs and Saints which are in division. That team will lose at least 2 more (that's being generous), and 9-7 won't cut this year.
Yeah, they've still got a very rough schedule ahead of them. They've already lost a few must-wins. I do see them improving dramatically between now and the end of the year, but I don't think we wind up with more than 8 wins. Bad enough to be left out of the playoffs, but good enough to not get a super good pick...
I know this is a hard question to ask you and a hard question for you to answer, but now that things are not looking so good for your Panther's, who do you really think will win your division? Just trying to get a gambler's edge anyway I can for the future. And with the current records and porous defenses, I only see division winner making the playoffs, no wild card here I can see (Sorry ERnie, only 1 of your teams get in). Plus, except for one year out of the last 17 years, I know exactly how you feel after being in the Super Bowl last year. Its an empty feeling. Only a very, and I mean very few super bowl losers make it back to the super bowl. I think many of them don't even make it back to the playoffs. Its weird what happens to very good teams sometime.
