Along the Sidelines - Patriots Edition

Nov 19 2013 07:04 AM Zod Carolina Panthers
In what became one of the most exciting and inspiring game in years the Panthers ultimately defeated the New England Patriots,

The night began with fireworks during the national anthem. The entire evening was a dedication to the military and their families.

Earlier in the week I predicted Steve Smith, despite being covered by Talib, would make an impact in this game. Almost immediately 89 began to remind Talib why Smith is known as one of the toughest players in the game.

Talib, while helpless to stop Steve Smith resorted to trying to twist his ankle after the play. The result was a Patriots penalty which energized the crowd more than in recent memory.

Posted Image

In fact, the Patriots played the dirtiest football I have ever witnessed at Bank of America Stadium. After each play they were sure to get in extra kicks and hits.

The Panthers, however, play between the whistles and sometimes even offer a helping hand to the opposition once the play is over.

Cam Newton had, in my opinion, one of the best games of his career. Without his elusive running ability and sure handed passing, the Panthers would not have been in this game.

However, the thing that I liked most about Cam last night was his presence and leadership. Each week, Cam is getting more comfortable in his role as a leader on this team. Last night, he led a clutch game winning touchdown against a solid team.

Brandon Lafell doesn't seem to get much credit from the media, but this season he has turned out to be a legitimate threat in this league.

No one is happier about the emergence of 2nd and 3rd receiving threats more than Steve Smith, who understands while he may not be getting the number of catches the team is getting the wins. After the Tedd Ginn game winning touchdown Steve was sure to celebrate with Ginn. It almost looked like a passing of the torch...

Thomas Davis had a monster night. It would have been difficult to photograph a defensive play without him in the frame.

Posted Image

Luke Kuechly was in a chess match with Tom Brady all evening. For a second year player to go toe to toe with one of the greatest QB's of all time speaks volumes to Luke's ability before and after the snap.

Posted Image

During the last Patriots touchdown, you could feel the energy collectively let out of the stadium. Immediately there were concerns the game may be lost. How ever, Cam Newton was having none of that.

Posted Image

And put together a solid scoring drive.

Once the defense took the field for the last time the game was within reach. The Panthers defense harassed Tom Brady with the most pressure he had seen all night long,

Posted Image

In the end, Robert Lester intercepted a ball as Tom Brady cried foul.

Posted Image

After the game, Bill Bellichick was man enough to shake the hand of Ron Rivera...

Posted Image

but Tom Brady was no where to be found. In a completely classless move, Brady headed for the tunnels without shaking hands with Cam Newton.

But you know what? Cam wasn't even mad.

Posted Image

And even did a victory lap, administering high fives to his fans who stayed until the very end.

What a great night to be a Panthers fan.

are you going to miami this week?

Really I was right there when Talib would not let go of Smith's leg. There is no doubt in my mind his intent was to injure Steve.

 

They Patriots were by far the dirtiest team I have ever shot at BoA. They made the Rams look like choir boys.

 

If I felt badly about the way the game ended before, I don't anymore. Pats got away with a lot, and they had other chances to win the game besides that last second pass.

Thank you zod. This is incredible. Im so proud of this team. Also that is a great pic of Lester the Interceptor

cmon, CAM cant be that dam tall.  are those guys all midgets or what?

That picture looks photo shopped or an optical illusion. The fans in the stand are so small and Cams height compared to the wall is off.

 

edit: it looks like Cam is jumping and closer to the camera.

is that Bill Murray in the final shot? lol

If I could give you a whole pie for this thread, I would :)

 

Awesome to see you here again.  Wish we saw more of you and the others who've sort of vanished over the years...

the crowd after the ginn td, i wish someone had a video of it from the stands.  i jumped so high i almost hit my head on the ceiling fan.  

1.  Why was Justin Long there?

2.  First time I've felt the stadium shake since the Tampa Bay game.

3.  I love the salute to the troops, but the singers at halftime were beyond a doubt horrid.  I thought I had transported into a bad 1950s musical.

The crowd was AMAZING! Something is changing! Man I woke up today really proud to be a Carolinian and a Panther fan!

 

Starting to feel like old times again ...  the team is 'gelling' as well.

the crowd after the ginn td, i wish someone had a video of it from the stands.  i jumped so high i almost hit my head on the ceiling fan.  

 

At least Dont'a Hightower (2nd year from Alabama) gave Cam some love- and they were bitter SEC enemies....

1.  Why was Justin Long there?

 

 Justin Long is a native of Connecticut.

Ah, so his douchiness is nurture as well as nature.

great pics Zod...thanks for not sharing all your cheerleader pics with the general public.  the PM's are awesome

I jumped and yelled, prompting my wife to give me "the look." She said, "if you had woken up the baby, I would have killed you." I informed her that that was as reserved as I could possibly have been.

Cam (Auburn) talking with Hightower (Bama).

 

I wonder if he was trash-talking the Iron Bowl yet.  :lol:

i dont have kids but believe me i can relate a little bit.

 

ive reached the point now where i have to watch the games with only panther fans or by myself.  I would rather not be in public with my language or attitude.  Im going full on ape poo, win, lose or draw... volcanic is a better adj to describe me when the game starts.

The telly just said we're only the second team to come back from down and beat Belichick in the final minute. Neat.



Now onto Miami. I want another one sunday.

Cam (Auburn) talking with Hightower (Bama).

 

I wonder if he was trash-talking the Iron Bowl yet.   :lol:

 

Notice Robert Lester (Bama) jawing also.

 

And thats exactly what they were talking about.

You know what Pisses me off?  Do you?  Take a look at the third picture and note that SS is wearing Under Armor socks.  I smell a scandal that rivals the Cam face shield clips of October.

I still have a ragging boner from last night

 

Raging, I hope.  Ragging would be the opposite.  However, we can look past the typo when we are 7-3!!!!
