Football season is over for us, Carolina fans. Please sadly turn your attention in the direction of that other version of football they play on Sundays. Together we can cling to the remaining NFL slate until the vast darkness of spring and summer consume us all for another year and we try to distract ourselves with strange diversions like "baseball" and "hockey playoffs" in order to survive football withdrawal. Or maybe we should check out our kick-ass basketball programs, since the NFL is dumb and probably not worth our attention outside of the guys listed below anyway.
