Kissing Suzy Kolber:
The Carolina Panthers turned to their fans via Facebook and Reddit yesterday for advice on how to call the team’s next coin flip as the team is 0-13 (including one overtime) on the toss this season. Much like trying to remember if it’s “liquor before beer, have no fear” or “beer before liquor, never sicker” six drinks into a bender, the captains of the Panthers seem to be struggling with, “tails never fails” versus “tails always fails, why not just call the same thing each week and see what happens it’s not like it can get any worse we’re already 3-8 and even the Jaguars and Chiefs have won coin tosses.”
This isn’t the first time in recent memory a team has struggled to win the coin flip. Last year both the New Orleans Saints and the Cleveland Browns started the season 0-11 on the coin flip, demonstrating that such bad luck can happen to both playoff bound and non-playoff bound teams alike.
Teams often spend a fair amount of time planning their strategy based upon on getting the ball first or deferring to the second half, so winning the toss does have some importance to the Panthers beyond just moral and superstition. Maybe they can lobby for Cleatus the Robot to toss this coin in this week’s game against the Chiefs, removing the human element that alters the true 50-50 nature of a coin flip.
As far as which option won the poll in the end? Hard to say as the Panthers have removed the poll from their Facebook page. Guess it’s a toss.

BEST OF MAXIM
The Carolina Panthers are an underachieving team. They have regressed from a team that finished 6-10 last season , to a team that is currently 3-8 and does not look like they are going to equal last season's win total. The Panthers don't appear to have made any improvement in any phases of the game. Quarterback Cam Newton has not improved since coming off his Rookie...
FLIP YA FOR REAL
After losing twelve consecutive coin tosses, the Carolina Panthers have posted a poll on the team's Facebook page asking fans to pick heads or tails.

to play this weekend against the Kansas City Chiefs after missing a week of
practice due to an ankle injury.

high ankle sprain in his left and a more generic sprain in his right. He’s
doubtful and most expect him to be sidelined against the Chiefs. The

When you have lost 12 coin tosses this season things are bad. By nature the coin toss gives a team a 50% chance of winning, yet the Carolina Panthers have lost on each of them to start their 11 game this season as well as losing out on one in an overtime loss to Tampa Bay.
Instead of taking an 0-for-13 the Panthers have sought the help from its fans to choose for Sunday’s game...

Despite today's tragedy involving Jovan Belcher's apparent homicide, suicide, the NFL has advised the Carolina Panthers to make the trip to Kansas City as planned according to Joe Person.
Considering the NFL's history of canceling games only in the most extreme of circumstances, it's unsurprising that this game will be played, although it seems surprising that...
Carolina Panthers (3-8) at Kansas City Chiefs (1-10)
Obviously, I can’t do this write up without mentioning the tragedy that happened Saturday Morning. Early Saturday morning, Chiefs’ starting middle linebacker Jovan Belcher murdered his girlfriend at their house and then came to the Chiefs’ practice facility and committed suicide in front of several teammates and coaches,...
The NFL’s week 13 MNF matchup between the Carolina Panthers and the Philadelphia Eagles put the spotlight on a pair of 3-8 teams who are headed towards empty postseasons. For the Carolina Panthers, they appear to be an organization that will look to shuffle the deck once more this offseason. They pulled the plug on longtime General Manager Marty Hurney several weeks ago and...
