The sky is clear, Charlotte is ready and there isn't a Ric Flair in sight. It's time for playoff football at Bank of America Stadium for the first time in five year.
Two wins from the Super Bowl, that's all it takes. This team has beaten San Francisco before, they know what needs to be done in order to move on. The media seemed to have forgotten that the Panthers won 12 games this season, but we sure haven't. The slant this week has been exceptionally annoying, but starting at 1:05 p.m. there's a chance to quiet all the critics.
It's more than one football game, it's about "Keep Pounding." 10 years after the phrase was invented it remains as important as ever. It's about overcoming adversity, never giving up and cracking a smile when the odds have you down and out.
ROLE CALL. LET'S HEAR YOU PANTHER NATION.
THIS IS NOW AN OPEN THREAD
