Everything they say about the Patri-
ots is true. They haven't lost since the
fourth week of the season, Tom Brady
is a stud, and, yes, Bill Belichick's
defenses are as good as everyone says
they are. The Patriots are the real deal.
But I have seen this all before. Brad
Johnson beat Rich Gannon last year
when everyone thought that the experi-
ence of the Raiders would prevail. The
year before that, it was Tom Brady's
Patriots upsetting the Rams and their
juggernaut offense. In 2000, the
Ravens were led to a Super Bowl title
by whom? Trent Dilfer? I refuse to be
duped once again by this game.
Carolina is no slouch. This team is
led by one of the best running backs in
the country, Stephen Davis. He ran for
over 1400 yards this season while bat-
tling injury. He is the type of running
back that wants the ball every down
and will run 50 times each game if that
is what it takes to win. Davis averaged
106.7 yards per game, fourth in the
NFL, and he rarely turns the ball over.
In order to stop the Panthers New Eng-
land has to put eight guys in the box.
Carolina coach John Fox will run the
ball on first and 10 or third and eight,
so the Patriots might as well just keep
their nickel-and-dime packages on the
Jake Delhomme is no Tom Brady.
He doesn't have the experience or the
legs. But he does have a great arm, and
he makes smart decisions. He may not
be a superstar yet, but he is certainly
good enough to get the ball to Steve
Smith and Muhsin Muhammad in sin-
But that's the way the Panthers are
built. They are the Patriots of two years
ago: No one knows who they are, and
they are the underdogs every week, but
they keep winning. Jake Delhomme's
quarterback rating actually improves,
from 71.4 to 97.3, when his team is
behind. This team is the definition of
clutch. Delhomme has led the Panthers
on game-winning drives in the last two
minutes of regulation or in overtime
eight times this season, including a
double overtime score from Del-
homme to Smith to beat the Rams in
Fox has given this team a purpose. A
team that was 1-15 two seasons ago is
now the pride of the NFC. They go
into each game expecting to win.
In week two of the season, the Pan-
thers took on the defending Super
Bowl Champion Tampa Bay Bucca-
neers. It was a team that looked even
better in a week-one slaughtering of
Philadelphia than they did in the Super
Bowl the year before. The Panthers
didn't care. They blocked three kicks,
ran the ball for 130 yards, and beat the
Bucs 12-9. That was the defining
moment for this team. They estab-
lished themselves as the team to beat
in the NFC, and they showed the foot-
ball world which team really has the
best defense in the NFL.
The standard for defenses in the
NFL of late has been the Buccaneers.
But the Panthers' front four are
stronger and faster. Julius Peppers,
constantly fighting double teams, had
only seven sacks this season (down
from his 12 last season). The other
three took advantage and combined
for 17 sacks between them. They get
to the quarterback without needing
the help of the safeties.
So, let the wild rumpus start and
watch as the underdog Panthers sur-
prise everyone once again.
