I have to say, man I am starting to like David Newton the writer for ESPN NFCS Blog/ Panthers. Dude is way better then Pat. He seems to me neutral when analyzing whether its good or bad. But doesn't seem to enjoy beating us down like most media members.
His latest article praises us for beating the poo out of the Giants, and not the Giants just having a bad day.
But remember, the Giants trailed the high-powered Denver Broncos only 17-16 until late in the third quarter, so this team hasn't been a complete pushover.
The Giants might be bad, but they put up 31 against Cowboys and 23 vs Denver, and like Newton pointed out, the score was 17-16 late in the 3rd QTR vs Denver. I mean this same Giants team beat the crap out of us with our starters last year and they had backup WR's eat us alive. Now our backup DB's seemed to stick with there man long enough to let our DL dominate.
The Panthers deserve some credit here, too.
I would say that is the best statement I have heard about our win in the last 24 hours. I am excited about the diamonds in the rough that we found. Melvin White and Robert Lester played great, when most (including myself) thought ELI was going to carve them up. Give the DL credit, but they only got 1 sack in the 2nd half, the pass rush slowed down IMO, but even our young DB's kept it going.
