Yep. It doesn’t get much better than this. Check out the Super Bowl 50 trailer for the Carolina Panthers. Narrated by Matthew McConaughey (I think it’s his Interstellar monologue, but hey, who’s counting) it takes highlights from the last time the team was in the Big Game.
Kevin Greene makes a showing. It shows the last time the team won the NFC and made it to the Super Bowl with John Fox and Jake Delhomme. What a game that was. They almost came back and beat the New England Patriots to take the title.
Then it shows the scene after the NFC Championship win against the Arizona Cardinals. There is a lot of motivation from predictions made by the “experts” before the season. They talked about seven wins. They talked about us getting third in the division. They talked about how Cam couldn’t get it done.
People said we couldn’t beat the Seattle Seahawks in the playoffs. That they were going to come into our house and end our Super Bowl dreams. Well, that didn’t happen. We gave them a first half beating and never looked back. There are plenty of highlights from that game in the video and it gave me chills seeing it again on television.
Then came the Arizona Cardinals and the talk about their excellent wide receivers. Their high flying offense. About how Carolina didn’t have the receivers that Arizona did.
Well, the Panthers just kept pounding, hit them in the mouth, knocked them around, and shut them down. We got to Carson Palmer early and often. He looked flustered and that game was never as close as the experts thought it was going to be.
So what happens now? Obviously the Denver Broncos are a good team, but you can’t tell me you don’t feel good about getting them instead of the New England Patriots. The offense just hasn’t looked good all season long and Peyton Manning is by no means his old self. The Sheriff looks old. He looks beat up. He doesn’t look like Peyton.
I don’t think the Panthers dream season is done yet. I think they go out to San Francisco and pick up another victory at Levi’s Stadium. If you want to get yourself pumped up for the final game of the season then give this video a watch.
