Interesting stat about the game:

14. I'll tell you why that Carolina victory was significant, and it has nothing to do with Cam Newton and/or RG3 and everything to do with referee Carl Cheffers. It marked the first time in Cheffers' last 12 games that the home team lost.

It was penalized, but on the bright side it makes QBs think twice.

See Julius Peppers nails Aaron Rodgers, Packers vs Panters.

Not that it's fair or right, but the ferocity of TD's hit drew the flag.

RG3 is a league darling right now - refs have his back.

RG was hit a few times in just our game where he looked like he was going to need smelling salts.. The Shannies are sailing him out in some dangerous seas..his frame is just not going to take that.

I wish you would all stop acting like girls and STOP with your CAM WHINING! Frankly its embarrasing. Everytime some perceived slight of Cam happens someone has to start a thread about it, Get the fug over it please, Cam isnt your boyfriend and you dont have to show him what an internet tough guy you are.

Seems to me any big market team gets the favor at home. I mean Vick is getting killed in Philly but no one cares.

First the hit on Cam did not look as violent, the one on RG did. Second, it was that way ALOT with Vick in all those years we played him against Atlanta. Many times he would look like is going out of bounds then turned it upfield, so there were plenty of times he got late hit calls cause he would decide to go out of bounds. Not sure how you handle that, except after awhile with QB's that play that way you treat as a RB when they run out of the pocket. But not sure if that will ever happen. Vick was good at using this to his advantage when he ran.

Cam got a much, much cheaper Roughing The Passer call than RGIII, yet everyone cries that we wuz robbed.

It looked like a hit out of bounds to me until they replayed it in slow motion. The refs don't get to look at the replays before making a call. I don't think it's a huge deal either way.

That flag gets thrown every single time in today's NFL, fair or not. If you haven't noticed, this league is all about protecting the QB and when it appears a QB is stepping out of bounds, defenders must let up or else they will get a 15 yarder. This applies to every quarterback in the league, even pickles.
