I found this video and it reminded me of how things used to be in the old NFC West. The Rams and 49ers ruled the roost, the Panthers were the upstart contenders and the Falcons and Saints traded for turns down in the cellar.
Now here we are in 2006. The New Orleans Saints, one year removed from the near destruction of their hometown are the current leaders of the NFC South. The Atlanta Falcons are considered by many to be one of the best teams in the NFC. The Carolina Panthers are a team full of expectations and hype just trying to survive a rash of injuries and poor performance. And the former NFC rulers from Tampa Bay are heading downward towards the same abyss as their pirate brethren in Oakland.
It just does not seem right, well except for the Tampa Bay part. The Panthers can get right back into this thing with a win and help all of us in Panther Nation form some new good memories.
Wouldn't Drew Bree's look good with the backward helmet?
