The silver lining for this team is getting real thin. In their last game against Detroit, the Panthers played well in the first half. With a 27-14 lead going into halftime, Carolina looked like the clear favorites to win. That is, until Matt Stafford came alive and lit up their secondary to the tune of 335 passing yards and 5 touchdowns. This Sunday, they face the frontrunners in the "Suck for Luck" campaign, the Indianapolis Colts. So don't be surprised to see the Panthers pull out a sympathy W. And they better cherish it because with Tampa Bay, Atlanta, New Orleans and Houston on tap for the final five games of the regular season, this could very well be their last win of the year. —Jose Martinez
