Pro career

Goings went undrafted, but signed with the Carolina Panthers as a free agent. He was used sparingly, mostly on third down carries to give the starting backs a break. He was also placed on special teams. However, his role began to expand with the change in offense once Jake Delhomme took over as quarterback. He scored his first NFL touchdown against the Tennessee Titans on an eight-yard reception from Delhomme. During the 2004 NFL season, Goings went from fourth on the depth chart to starter, once Stephen Davis, DeShaun Foster, and Rod Smart all went down with injuries. Goings led the team in rushing, and played in all sixteen games. His 121-yard, 3 touchdown performance against the Arizona Cardinals earned him NFC Offensive Player of the Week honors. He also led the NFL with five 100-yard rushing games, and tied Davis' team record with four consecutive 100 yard games. The next season, he moved up to the third slot on the depth chart, and thanks to his impressive 2004 season, he was used much more often in game situations. With another injury to Davis, he was the backup to Foster towards the end of the season. As Foster went down in the NFC Divisional Game, Goings has once again become the starter. He will start in the NFC Championship Game on January 22 against the Seattle Seahawks.
