Man, how nice is Booth's play as of late? I really thought we would miss Jokinen on offense, but Booth has filled in nice and is having a better offensive season then Jokinen, scoring 18 compared to Ollie's 14. Ollie has a few more assists, but with this lame offense, I'll take the extra goals.
Speaking of, we are scoring more then last year, I think skewed because of the recent surge, but whateever, I'll take it! 9 points in the last 5 games, 5+ goals per game. We are one of those teams that can become dangerous in the playoffs even as a 6th, 7th or 8th. If Vokun can heat up, I think we can steal a playoff spot easy. This year we won't have to worry about having a 10-game streak to make up 4 ranks in the standings, by weeks end, we might be in the top 8!!
I also saw an interesting stat...
The Panthers have scored 120 goals and given up 119. The first time in which their Goals For was higher then Goals Against after a minimum of 20 games over the past 3 years. Maybe there is some promise for this team?!
One day, I will own a new NFL team, and to it I will sign:
QB: Michael Vick, RB: Ricky Williams, RB: Lendale White, WR: Terrel Owens, WR: Chad Johnson, WR: Plaxico Burress, WR: Chris Henry, TE: Jeremy Shockey, LB Ray Lewis, CB Deangelo Hall, CB Pacman Jones, DT Tank Johnson, and fill the holes with Bengles and Raiders.
Noone will #$@! with us, or we'll send our new offensive cooridnator Rae Carruth their way...
