The pressure sits squarely on the shoulders of the New Orleans Saints.

After all, things turned south quickly for the Carolina Panthers in 2010 as they stand 1-6 in the NFC South and may already be on 'on the clock' for next year's No. 1 overall NFL draft pick—unlikely but possible.

Fox may be the next head coach in Dallas. Barring a dramatic turnaround, it's unlikely Fox will return to Carolina in 2011.

Carolina Nation is not happy.

The game is being played in Charlotte and that's too bad because those Panther fans probably could have used a trip to Pat O'Brien's to calm their nerves.

Witness what those Panthers fans are saying in a Charlotte Observer fan forum these days
