First Round Draft Pick. If they beat ATL once and go 2-14 they go into a 3 way tie for FRDP.

I meant the Falcons game against Seattle

I've actually been thinking the panthers are the team thats gonna save us from being a 13-3 wildcard for a while. They match up well against the Falcons and honestly think they can shut down their offense. If they can get points some how, I think this they are the best shot left on the schedule. I don't see Seattle beating Atlanta; though having Cole back may help them a ton(it's just how they've played so far Turner would light them up). If the panthers can somehow put points on the board they have a good shot, and to be honest I'm not impressed with the Falcons defense, so thats very possible.

There's not a player or coach in the league that gives a flying rat's kahooty about a draft pick. When they step foot on that field it will be with every intention of doing whatever it takes to win.

They probably would have played better had they been plaing us, the Bucs and the Falcons. Its kind of difficult to plug one team in for another and conclude the result of that match up. Like Saintswrath said, we just have to handle our business and be ready however this thing shakes out.

Players yes. Coaches... don't count on that. It is far too easy to screw up clock management and make a loss look unintentional. And any coach with any sense and a loosing record is thinking about the draft... It does not take multiple seasons to lose a coaching job any more, there are way too many great coaches that are not coaching.

If I am the owner of Carolina, I am looking at next year.... Have been for a few weeks now.

I say they lose to the Seahawks. Road game, different weather, Qwest field...it could happen. Those Falcons like it nice and cumfy in a dome.

Fox, and his staff, are out next year. They care less about Carolina draft choices than the players do. They are auditioning for new jobs.
