A local Charlotte TV station said that the NFL referenced a 2010 game against the Panthers. This game, Nov. 7th:



Full NFL release here:

"The facts, however, conclusively undermine this characterization. For example, in a game between the Saints and the New York Giants in 2009, a Saints player earned a reward for a cart-off of Giants running back Brandon Jacobs, who left the game with a shoulder injury. After a 2010 game against the Carolina Panthers, the Saints defensive unit was commended for forcing '3 CART-OFFS! 1 already placed on I.R.!' In that game, three Carolina players were seriously injured: running backs Jonathan Stewart and Tyrell Sutton, who were literally carted off the field with a head/neck and ankle injury, respectively, and quarterback Matt Moore, who was later placed on injured reserve, unable to return for the remainder of the season, with a torn labrum. These all satisfied Coach Williams' definition of cart-offs: 'big hits that resulted in an opposing player leaving the game due to the hit (for example, having the "wind knocked out of him" or being shaken up or injured in some other way)...' He added that 'rewarding cart-offs and knockouts...could encourage players to injure opposing players [and] I now understand that someone could be seriously injured as a result...'

They are getting what they deserve. Period. Vilma especially is slime. No sympathy here.

If I was the fans of the Panthers, I'd be way more concerned with what's wrong with my team than I would be with the Saints. But that's just me. It seems some of you rather sit and hope for the failure of otherteams than fix your own team's mess.

I sit and hope for the Panthers to right the ship. I sit and laugh at a division rival getting slammed by Goddell.
