1st & 15: Best Panther Game!

“1st & 15″ is a new series where you get to throw the penalty flag.  In each article, I will “start” with an adamant statement.  You get to tell me why my “start” is “false.” 

So, make a comment below to tell me why your opinion is better than mine.  We will have a followup article where the best responses will be noted, plus we’ll have a poll to see which opinion most readers agree with.


START:  The Best Game in Carolina Panthers History was the 2008 Season Opener! 

The San Diego Chargers were a popular pick to win the Super Bowl, yet in Game One, our undercats managed to dominate most of the game.  The Chargers made a late surge to take the lead, but, in an incredible last minute drive, it came down to one play: Two seconds left on the clock and Carolina’s down by 5.  4th down at the Charger’s 14.  As time expires, Jake Delhomme pump fakes (fooling even the cameraman), then throws a TD pass to TE Dante Rosario for the shocking victory!  Best game ever!

(I know this crew disagrees with me!)

FALSE?  If you feel another Panther game was the best ever, drop me a comment to say which game and why.

    Has everyone forgot about the Cardiac Cats of 03? Best season in history..The best game has got to be the 2003 Divisional Championship round against the St Louis Rams. Double OT..First play of the second overtime where Smith is just standing in the endzone all alone..How can you ever top that?

    I wish I could disagree to make it to the top comments but I have to agree. It was the wildest panther day ( aka sunday )ever. We are a wild group of panther fanatics but that last second touchdown led to holes in the walls and a injured panther fan. We went crazy, had the whole neighborhood outside on their porches screaming ” lets go Panthers ” and I’m pretty sure the injured colleague we had would say it was worth the regular season we had that year. Good Pick !!!

    I have to throw a flag on that penalty…. best game so far in our short history has got to be the game in the playoffs against the Rams. I remember sitting in my car here in Virginia,waiting for my wife…. and almost jumping out of my car when Smitty caught that pass.
