First you dashed my Super Bowl hopes by letting Trent Dilfer thrown like he was the second coming of Montana, now you let Jake Delhoume become a post season hero!


Great job Carolina! Most entertaining Playoff game in a long, long time!

Unbelievable game. I think it was the most interesting to see Delhomme get pissy at the last series because it was so loud....


...and then throw that strike to Smith that he did for the Drive Home Safely moment.

I couldn't take the overtime of that game after Carolina blew its kick. I thought it was all over; I was too tense. I felt awful. For the sake of my mental health, I really shouldn't have bet Carolina to win. But I did, and I can't stand the Rams, and that ending was just so exciting. And, most importantly, such a relief. That was just incredibly cool.

I screamed more for this game than I did for the Pats; it was astounding.

Martz is a fool for not going for the win; I hope he gets fired and verbally crucified on PTI.

To steal a quote off the Patriots pre-game show on the radio, it looks like Vermiel was the "Offensive Genius" when the Rams won the Super Bowl a few years ago, not Martz.

Yeah, I think they fire Martz and give the head coaching job to Lovey "Don't ask me where Thurston is" Smith.

Settling for the tie and taking it to overtime was a fine idea. It would have taken one 40 or two 20 yard passes to get in the endzone; the way Bulger was occasionally slinging wild and getting picked makes sending it to overtime just as feasible. If the Rams had won the game no one would care that he ran it out. I think most of the blame belongs with Bulger anyway.

DOnt blame Bulger, like the local media are doing, the rams simply got beat by a terrific defense. Pure and simple. Every time it looked like the Rams would go up big, the Panthers held them, and picked off passes to end two drives.

The Rams were at the 16 yard line at the end of the game (it was a 33 yard field goal, because we add the 10 yard endzone & the 7 yard kicking room behind the line of scrimmage)... One of the worse coaching moves I've ever seen. You have all the momentum, you had the Panthers defense on the ropes the first time all game. They just battled a long Rams drive for a score & had to go right back out there after the onside kick. After the onside kick Rams went about 40 yards in a few plays to get to the 16 & you stop with 30 seconds & a timeout. How do you play for a tie? How does someone put their entire season fate on a freakin coin toss when you have a legit chance of finishing the game in regulation?

If the field goal was for the win, okay I can see it (I would still have gone to the endzone), but for a tie to go to sudden death overtime where you have a chance of not having your offense even coming on the field. I can't state how stupid it was. If Martz was worried about Bulger screwing up big time and throwing an interception, then The Rams have no business being in the playoffs and Warner should be playing. It's one thing to play smart and conservative when you are in the lead but when trailing? Naa that doesn't pass... I was rooting for The Rams, just because I picked them here and wanted to go 5 for 5 in the playoffs, but once overtime came, I was all behind The Panthers, there's no way I could cheer for The Rams when their coach pussed out in pathetic fashion.

I have to agree with you, NHS. What is even worse, with hindsight, is that I think Martz was playing for a field goal the whole way, from the moment they recovered the onside kick with about 2:20 left on the clock! At the time, I thought they were just overconfident about their scoring ability, and he was just being cautious about leaving too much time on the clock when they went ahead. Only at the end did I realize that he was actually not even going for the win, just the tie. I never thought I would see Martz coach scared, but that's what he did.

But both coaches coached scared in OT. Both offenses would eat up yardage until they got within long field gaol range, then they would bring in the TE's and run the 1 yard and a cloud of dust offense. It apparently never occured to either coach that they could try to get in closer to set up more of a sure-thing field goal. They just thought "OMG, we might turn it over, better not screw up!" I knew the game wouldn't end until somebody busted a big play from long range that either brought the ball into short field goal distance or actually scored a TD.

Hey, the Panthers first field goal was perfectly in range. It was as perfect a field goal as you could ask for. It just sucks that the snap was late. Oh yeah, and StaggerLee?

Angie HARMON. Not that hard to tell 'em apart. One was on a bastion of quality television programming. The other was in Agent Cody Banks.
