Have we started?
No, the NFL "Pick Um" game hasn't started. As others have gently pointed out, wrong thread.
And why do you all use place names rather than the names the teams chose? It's not poetic. It's pedantic. Carolina is not playing. It's the Panthers who are playing.
Because we like to, and we can. Around here we occasionally call the AZ Cardinals the "Red Birds" ... again, we only do it because we want to.
What does this lot mean?
Carolina Panthers NFC NCS 0 4 0 .000 57 89 -32 6 0-2 0-2 0-0 .000 0-1 .000 0-3 4L 0-4
That is Carolina's line for this year's preseason. They are in the NFC (National Football Conference) in the South division. Those numbers relate to the following: Wins, Losses, Ties, Winning Percentage, Points For, Points Against, Net Points, Touchdowns, Home Record, Road Record, Division Record, Division Winning Percentage, Conference Record, Conference Winning Percentage, Current Streak, Record in Last 5 games.
They are second bottom in the League. Is there a relegation zone?
No such critter. Anyway, this is just preseason ... they might win the Super Bowl!
