I'm going with my home town Panthers on this one. They have really come together as a team and are peaking at the right time.
The Pats are probably the better team, but I just have a feeling that the Panthers are going to give everything they have to win.
Of course Belichick knows that the Panthers don't do well against teams that go ahead big early. So look for a couple trick plays by the Pats to start the game.....if Carolina can shut these down, I think they win the game.
I think we all agree that it will be a great game. I just can't see it being a big blow out. It will be fun. I like the Panthers a lot and I hope they win. But the Pat's are really tough and smart. If Coach Billichick can come up with a game plan to stop Manning, Edge and Harrison in one weeks time... I can't imagine what he will come up with in two weeks for Delhomme and the Panthers. If the Panthers can get that running game rolling it will be a great game. My Guarantee.... the team with the highest point total at the end of the game will win..... I think.
