NFC South Flash Points coming soon

I’m looking through your voting in our Flash Points ballots for the make-or-break moment in the history of the Saints, Panthers, Buccaneers and Falcons. More than 133,000 of you voted -- that’s an outstanding number and we thank you very much.

I’ll be spending much of today writing a column that will highlight the Flash Points for each NFC South franchise. That column will appear Wednesday afternoon and I’ll be quoting some of the voters who voiced their opinions in the comments section or my mailbag.

Let me also give you fair warning that the rules on this one, set forth by the bosses in Bristol, say that the moment that won the popular vote doesn’t have to be the Flash Point. Ultimately, I get to make the call on the definitive moment for each franchise.

Your votes definitely will have some influence and I can tell you I’m going to agree strongly with the vote for one team. I’m going to disagree with the vote for two teams and I’m still somewhat on the fence with the remaining team.

Stay tuned for the final results Wednesday afternoon.
