Carolina's Season Closes With Loss to Saints

The playoffs are not part of the story as Carolina finishes its season with a difficult loss to New Orleans. The Carolina Panthers made an amazing comeback in 2004, starting the season 1-7 before improving to 7-8 going into their final regular season game.

With 50 seconds remaining Sunday at Bank of America Stadium, they hoped they had one more comeback left in them. After driving 56 yards in five plays, kicker John Kasay attempted a 60-yard field goal attempt on the game's final play. But the kick was blocked, and the New Orleans Saints ended the Panthers season by a score of 21-18, knocking Carolina out of playoff contention in the process.

Foistavall - I ain't no anonymous. I be da Uncle Wheelie. But, for some reason, I ended up as anonymous. Ah well. Could be woise.

Anyway, Sorry the Panthers didn't make it to the Super Bowl. (Hmmm. I wonder if there'll be any clowning around out in the stadium parking lot in Jax?)

Here are my predictions:

It will be a high yardage game. Lots and lots of yardage. Many long passes caught. But very low scoring. Very very low scoring. And -- no turnovers. Not a one. Well, maybe one little one, like a fumble during a sack. But that's it. It will look like a typical pre-season, doo-dah football game. And the winner? If the Patriots don't outscore Philly, then the Eagles might win. But, hey! It's a football game and as everybody knows, ANY TEAM CAN WIN ON ANY SUNDAY. So, I wouldn't be surprised if the San Diego Chargers end up winning it.

Come to think of it, the KC Chiefs aren't too shabby and the Seahawks are always good for some activity in the endzone. So, wouldn't it be fun if the Chiefs and the Seahawks arrived at JAX stadium ahead of time, chased off the Pats and Eagles, and then play the game instead. That would be the ultimate in turnovers!
