What EXACTLY needs to happen for the Carolina Panthers to miraculously sneak into

the playoffs in 2011? Now as a die hard Carolina Panthers fan, I'm not asking this with an sort of optimism that we have a chance because I know we're done for. However, the fact remains that we are not yet eliminated from playoff contention with the record of 4-8.

Does anyone know exactly what needs to happen in the following weeks in order for this to happen? Wikipedia says that we are eliminated next week if we lose AND either Detroit or Chicago wins. But that's the extent of what I know.

Thanks guys, the more specific the better! Remember, this is sheer curiosity so please don't go bashing my team or telling me to give it up already

by that logic, you have to win every game and Detroit and Chicago would have to lose every game for the rest of the season.

Basically you magic number is 2. Any loss by Carolina or win by either Chicago or Detroit is one. Either combination and you are eliminated.

Well for starters you can't win the division but you know that because the Saints already have 9 wins. Your only hope is that one team gets the first wild card spot (Falcons, Lions, and Bears) and of those 3 teams the other 2 lose the rest of their games... not likely.

They have to win the rest of their games first and foremost.

They need CHI, DET, and ATL, to lose the rest of their games.

The Giants can only win one more game. If the giants win 2 or more, you need the cowboys to not win another game this season.

I think that would do it.
