FB: Last season, the NFC South didn’t really deserve a single playoff team with the Panthers grabbing the fourth seed with a 7-8-1 record. Despite that, two years ago we saw Carolina advance with New Orleans taking a wild card berth. Two years later, can the ‘South send two teams into the postseason again?
CS: If the Saints still had Graham, then they would be the Wild Card team.
FB: No love for the Falcons I see. Last season, the head-to-head was split between Atlanta and Carolina, with each team winning on the road. What do the Panthers need to do to replicate their Week 17 victory?
CS: Play consistent because you never know what Falcons team is going to show up. Last year on paper it appeared they had one of the best teams in the league. Get on the field and it is a different story.
FB: I feel I already know your answer to this, but who is winning the NFC South?
We’ll have to agree to disagree there, Chris. I’d like to thank Chris for taking time out to talk to us. If you ever feel like scouting the enemy, be sure to head over to Cat Crave. They do a great job of covering the Panthers. I will be giving my take on the Falcons’ offseason in the coming days over on their site, so stay tuned for that.
