Disrespect: For our 2003 Superbowl Run

I was reading this story at Foxsports.com about the 10 worst teams to make the Superbowl and what did I find at #9? That's right our 2003 Panthers. My jaw almost hit the floor. That was something I didn't expect.

Just like many of the Super Bowl teams on this list, the 11-5 Panthers were good, but certainly not Super Bowl champion-worthy. They almost missed the playoffs after a late-season three-game losing streak, but righted their ship and shut down Philly in the NFC title games — those vaunted Eagles of Todd Pinkston and James Thrash at wide receiver. The Panthers did give us an exciting Super Bowl ending before losing to Tom Brady's Patriots by a late field goal.

Apparently the 11-5 record and a division win, plus almost winning the Superbowl is wiped out by a three game losing streak. Give me a break!

Do you guys agree to disagree?
