I've wondered the same thing. Primarily I'm a Titans fan (Houston native here, hello Galveston!). Panthers are my #2 Unit.
Keeping the Panther Pride, in Galveston, Texas.
While the Titans were getting trounced when they lost, the Panthers were getting edged out. To me that seems a step closer to arriving.
Don't understand the calling for Rivera's head et al.
The offense is aging though so better get it into gear as Newton enters his prime.
