Soo much to like about this game.

First and foremost Godfrey played his ass off today. That pick 6 was a game changer and got the crowd involved in a big way from then on. He also knocked the absolute poo outta Graham in the 4th, sending him to the sideline.

Props to the section on the away side on the 30 yard line...they refused to participate in the wave, but the section by the panthers tunnel was so persistent they got it to go the other direction.

Cam Newton is so awesome for the fans. When we took the lead,his enthusiasm in the end zone jumping up and down and waving his hands and acknowledging the crowd was priceless.

The crowd was awesome today and my section 127 nearly stood up the entire game without 1 complaint.

We truly had homefield advantage today with the D being electrified by the crowd.

I hate the over usage of this word but Thursday Nights atmosphere should be epic.

So nice to see Beason seal the win with the final interception today.

Deangelo still has that home run ability and I am glad we have him regardless of CRA's vendetta against him.

Gamble showed why he was the man again in that pass deflection to force 4th down for the Saints** in the 4th.

By the games end you could tell we totally demoralized the Saints** Defense.

The trick play on the Lafell reverse was a thing of beauty.

Saints** fans behind me were good sports and were genuinely fun to go back and forth with all game.

That Gamble play was my favorite play on Defense today.

Followed by the Hardy sack, and the TD hit on Brees.

By the time Beason INT rolled around, the sun was making its way out from behind the clouds and about half the stadium was empty.

Everyone, Panthers and Saints** fans included, assumed the game was in hand after the late 4th down stop when the stadium's noise level was at its peak.



I wouldn't say that HALF the staduim was empty at this point. Me and my friends were impressed by how many ppl were still in their seats when the clock ran out. The fans were as great as the players today.

Finally got home, had a blast today. Stadium had some bare spots around it, but damn did it get loud. Godfreys pick six really did kick things off, everyone was pumped up from start to finish. Ended up leaving right after Beason got the INT followed by cheers from everyone. Great day for a Panther win.

Less left in the 4th than usual IMO.
Sec 133 was on it's feet every 3rd down quietly watching on offense and standing up and screaming like crazy when we were on D. Many high fives amongst the faithful. Most enthusiasm I have ever witnessed in that section, minus playoff games.
The preemptive "Sweet Caroline" was good today too.

lol....

Nothing irrational about it. Williams had a good game. Hit his read option hard and up the gut. That works. Today was the first time he has done such under Chud.

I have stated a billion times the current Williams has the talent to lead the NFL in rushing if given the opportunity and in an ideal scheme for him. Love the guy....in his now 18 games under Chud....this system hasn't fit as well for him as Fox one did for example. But if he runs like he did TODAY....we will be fine.

I don't overreact to one game. Good or bad.

Great read, and happy to add from my experience today:

1) The Statue of Liberty was truly amazing to see in person. Would be SC #1 all week if it went for 6.

2) Halftime tribute (after Chairman of the Board) got a ton of cheers.

3) It looked much easier in person than it did on TV (watched the DVR after). The Panthers were in control from their first score onward.

4) Stadium experience is a notch higher.

5) The Saints* fans behind me were a lot of fun to talk to. They drove down from DC and knew their team inside and out; back 30 years when they started following them. There are indeed a lot of bandwagon fans, but New Orleans does have reasonable fans.

I was in 529 today and there is a solid section of Panthers fans thntere. No Saints* fans anywhere near us...

The row I was in probably got up and down more than any row I've ever sat in, but they were all Panthers fans and polite.

Still surprising to me that the majority of people don't show up until 5 minutes left in the first quarter. I wanna watch from the very first kickoff...

Was also surprised at how many fans left with about 4 minutes remaining... Game wasn't over...

I usually average about 2 games a season and this was a great one... I like sitting in the endzone like that and the Panthers were awesome today.
