2 positives I picked up from the game last night

Also, Mark Jones seems to be that "one tackle away" from breaking into the open field for a Touchdown on Punt and kick off returns, he seems to always get to that second level...seems like a much better option then Robinson, and could turn out to be a key player in the playoffs.

Rushed for over 150 yards and 4 TD's.
0 sacks allowed
28 points on the road against a top defense.
1 penalty the entire game.
Jarrett adds another clutch catch to his resume (doesn't have many catches, but he's made them all count)
Baker had a very good night punting despite a strong rush.
ZERO turn overs.
Still plenty of stuff to work on, but I was very happy with how last night went...outside of 300 yards rushing and the loss.

Also, Brayton had a pretty goos night
And finally, I still think there's a chance the Giants don't even make it to the NFC championship game. And if we win next week, we'll get to host it.

If it wasnt for the run game against us, that game would have been UGLY.
This team is different from panther teams of the past, it seems they have yet to get a "big head" like teams of past, then get fall on their faces when it counts...this team plays great against great teams. Alot of that has to do with chemistry I believe, and everyone seems to be on the same page, just the run couldn't be stopped last night. Other then that, we played an overall solid game.

Brayton played his best game of the year! Steve Smith let his temper take over for a few seconds and like always it made him look like a fool and hurt the team. Again!

* Carolina led and largely controlled the now superbowl favotire for 3 and a half quarters and lost by a missed fg at the end.
* The loss can largely can be credited to Kemo not playing. What happens when he is healthy?
* Our offense was seemingly mistake free. No turnovers, no penalties almost.
* Our offense moved the ball seemingly at will against the arguably best def. line in the game. To me the only time we stalled on offense is when we sat on the lead in the 4th.
