Carolina Panthers are Super Bowl bound!

It's been over a week and a half since the Carolina Panthers knocked off the Arizona Cardinals to win the NFC Championship game...and I still have a hard time believing my team is playing in the Super Bowl this weekend.

Man, where do I even start? It's been a fun and wild ride through the 2015 NFL season. To think back to how our season began, losing WR Kelvin Benjamin before the 1st game, no one thought this team would be this good. I believe however one of the things that sets this team apart from other NFL teams is their heart and their teamwork. I know it sounds cliche to say "let's win this for the team", but all season long these guys have been there for one another. The next man up mentality has never been truer, especially with the late season injuries to Charles "Peanut" Tillman, Bene Benwikere, Jaren Allen and a host of other guys.

Even the rookies have stepped up and added something to this team. The image above is the 2015 Topps Chrome team set, but this really doesn't do this team justice. Where's Thomas Davis?! Roman Harper, Kurt Coleman, Ted Ginn Jr., Jericho Cotchery, Jared Allen? 

All long this Panthers fan has had to listen to the critics and the media downplay this team. Even though the team kept winning all I heard is "who have they played?". When they beat Seattle and Green Bay, it was "oh, those teams were going through a slump" or "those teams aren't that good this year". With the exception of the one game in Atlanta against the dirty birds, this team has overcome all odds and come out with the victory. 

Needless to say I'm on cloud 9 and I can't wait for this weekend. It ought be a good game and my prediction for the night will be by the time the game is over, this song will be played all through out the Carolinas...

Panthers 31, Broncos 14
