fact: if cam connects with smitty on that 3rd-and-2 bomb everyone is bawling about we'd have put the game away.

fact: fox would have run the ball in that situation because he didn't have the killer instinct to put the game away. this is what caused him to get fired.

fact: chuz and rivera HAVE that killer instinct.

fact: cam newton is a rookie quarterback playing his fifth game in an offense installed at the beginning of the season, with no OTA's or minicamp and will have occasional timing errors with receivers.

fact: in the future these types of coaching decision, coupled with an experienced quarterback and gelling offensive machine, will lead to completions and clutch finishes against quality teams like today's matchup.

fact: today's loss sucks but if you are actually suggesting rivera and chudz are terrible coaches i sincerely hope you drown before next sunday.

fact: A hand-off to one of our two first round running backs was still the correct call.

It's a very low probability gamble especially when you consider Cam wasn't very accurate on his deep passes all day and hadn't been on the same page with 89.

I mean, if I were to buy $1000 worth of Powerball tickets and just happened to win $300 million off one of them, was it still an intelligent decision to buy that many tickets that you would recommend other people try?

I have a better fact: Defense has to stop third down conversions. They did not. /game
