They may have had a bit of a shakey start to the season, but Tampa ooze quality and its only a matter of time before they start to click.

Carolina is better than people think and I think they will make the playoffs, but I still think Tampa is the best team in the NFL. That defense is so nasty. Monday night vs. the Colts will be a good test for both teams.

I think we've got a fair shot at winning the Division.

1st of all, the Saints and Falcons don't hardly count anymore.

2nd, we own the tiebreaker with the Buc's. So if we beat NO and ATL, (like we ought to) and the Buc's do the same, and they come to our house and beat us, we still win.

3rd. I'm not sure the Buc's can beat us again anyway. We match up very well with them for some reason. We played them very closely last year when we ended up 7-9 and they won the SB.

This year we went in and beat them in their home opener. Which was really their best shot. The crowd at Ericsson has been great this year. Jake Delhomme has been improving steadily every game. He was thrown in against the Buc's for his first start as a Panther and won, even with a shaky showing, I'd expect better play next time. And Deshaun Foster should have emerged more by then. Davis got 130+ yards all by himself last time. By then he should be sharing more carries with Foster, who has a very complementary style to Davis.

So, while the Buc's are undoubtedly a great team, I'd actually be kinda surprised if they beat us Nov. 9th.

Carolina wins the South. That defense and running attack is hard to stop.
