Also only the fumbled can advance it on 4th down. Regardless, this is the luckiest panthers touchdown I can remember. Anyone remember a luckier one? Also this reminded me of Steve smith's lucky touchdown on the deflection against us with the Ravens last year.
One thing I noticed was that on the bad spots, the line judges were simply not in position to spot the ball. When the saints were given the benefit of the spot on 4th and 1, both line judges were 5 yards down the field. They had little chance to make a good spot due to being out of position. There was also a play where the panthers threw a ball into the end zone and maybe there was pi but the ref completely turned his head away from the play while the ball was approaching like he was afraid the ball would hit him.
That is so cool. I used to really like his podcast but I just stopped listening for some reason. I will definitely check it out tomorrow. I have listened to your last two huddle podcasts and they are great. Really enjoyed norman and bene last week. You are doing a great job on those.
Nfc south is currently the only division with two 2-0 teams (afc east would also if jets win) yet espn and the media just want to talk about how bad the division is. Look at the Falcons remaining schedule and the Panthers schedule. I think both could get double digit wins. Meanwhile the nfc east is terrible and the afc south is terrible and nobody talks about them. Good thing the playoffs aren't decided by popularity.
Going for 2 at the end is not a riverboat Ron moment. Most NFL coaches do that at the end of a preseason game to avoid overtime. The announcers acted surprised but that was an obvious decision and is no indication of what would happen in a real game.
It was a good situation to practice a 2 pter though.
