That makes no sense..
The eagles were supposed to be good.. they weren't.. even with Overrated Donovan.. their offense looked like crap.. could have been because of the Panthers defense.. probably 50% good play by the panthers, 50% crap by the eagles..
But the eagles defense also looked like crap.. could have been because of the Pathers offense.. probably 50% good play by the panthers, 50% crap by the eagles..
Now, take into account what the Pats did. knocking off in back to back weeks the Co-MVPs.
talk about getting no respect.. The Pats.. listen to the commentators.. read the papers.. they all talk about how the Pats are 7pt favorites BUT.... then go on to praise the Panthers.
it's the Panthers that will go into this game overconfident and underprepared. Clearly they are the Best team in the NFC.. clearly they are head and shoulders above the best of the NFC..
but when it comes down to armchair quarterbacking, there is no way I would want money riding on the Panthers offense, defense, qb, coach or special teams.
plus they look gay in baby blue.
