This has been one poor half by the online and the defense if they think they have arrived, they have a rude awaking coming we collectively better pray for Luke 's return and soon ..and Darryl at right tackle
It would be a real good weekend to end it early and get some young players like Funchess and artis Payne going with reps before that brutal 4 to 5 game stretch i suspect the Panthers will win but winning easily or convincingly just does not seem to be in Rivera led team's DNA
The 3 in front of me were pretty bad, along with showing pics of Cam in his pink jacket on their cell phones and making remarks with a 6 year old girl sitting just in back of them i just said 'look at the score board' each time they displayed their intelligence, which was often
The excuse given was Cam was out of the pocket i guess being hit out of bounds is ok when out of pocket some of the ball placements yesterday very questionable as well cam isn't a liar. Hochuli however .,..
If Harper and Tillman remain as DBs and that DL continues to not get pressure, the Panthers best pray they have a decent enough offense to run the ball and grind that clock away. For a team that hangs their hat on defense, due to injuries, age, and non performance, the Panthers D is looking a bit suspect. I'm not sure Luke would have made that much difference yesterday. If a team can't pressure and contain Luke McNown, oh my....how will it deal with Ryan, Luck, Rodgers, Wilson? Frankly, as much as I want to be impressed with Shaq Thompson, I"m just not. They could have used another DL or OL vs Shaq. I just don't see a #1 on him. The Panthers D goes at that Dline goes and they weren't great with Charles Johnson. Where are all those 'special things' Shaq was supposed to bring...just asking.
Those refs yesterday were simply unbelievable the Vegas line was 10 points seems to me those refs wanted to make sure that didn't happen. Ask yourself, if that had been Brady, luck, Rodgers or any other qb than cam newton if roughing the passer would not have been called
