Steve Smith probably lost the game.

And just typing that hurt a lot (look at my avatar, after all).

His hold on the last FG drive was not only amazingly obvious, but even a little cheap (he had successfully blocked the defender from the play, because the guy couldn't even see beyond his shoes Steve was pulling him so hard).

Without that hold, the defender might have gotten to DeAngelo a little bit sooner, but Kasay's FG would have been a bit shorter (and from the looks of how close it was, would have gone through).

Oh, and I am a bit ticked at Kalil for muffing the snap. That play was not designed as a run at all (or if it was, it was a delayed handoff.) DeAngelo looked a bit surprised to have the ball in his hands, but Delhomme was trying to salvage the play.

Yea but poo happens and you get over it. The refs decided to call things in the second and not the first. It was going on on both sides.

No one player can be singled out for losing the game not unless it reall was that bad and Smitty's holding wasn't THE single game defining moment

I can,t blame smitty for that blatent hold, the dam yellow flags were superglued to the refs for most of the game! He prolly figured it was going to be overlooked like all the other penalties.

Several plays/mistakes along the way probably lost the game (or won it from the Giants). This was one of them. Dumb behavior by Steve on the play, and costly, but he's earned quite a bit of slack from Panther fans in 2008, imo. Still love him.

Smith probably lost us the game because of his penalty.

Kasay probably lost us the game because of his miss.

The defensive line probably lost us the game because of their laughable attempts at tackling Ward.

The secondary probably lost us the game because Eli was able to pick them apart on every key 3rd and long.

Jake probably lost us the game because of his poor throws in the second half and overtime.

The coaches probably lost us the game because of their horrible predictable playcalling.

The Panthers probably lost us the game because they got outplayed in the second half in all facets.

We lost because Jake called heads at the OT coin toss and it came down tails

Wtf

We still had a chance to pick up 6 for a 1st down to get closer

We decided to run and let Kasay kick a long one

As it is probably well known i HATE Steve Smith passionately. He's a despicable human being but he didn't lose this game. Giving up 300 yards rushing lost the game.
