There isn't a more frustrating player for Panthers fans than Brandon "Donald" Lafell. One week he looks like a rookie, the next an accomplished veteran.

Against the Saints, Lafell had a less than lackluster performance (to put it nicely). Not only was he not catching balls, but he was missing blocks. Missing blocks is inexcusable for a receiver of his size.

Apparently, Lafell knew he needed to redeem himself. Notice his role in the Deangelo Williams screen pass. Without Lafell's block on the 20 yard line Deangelo would not have had a touchdown. With the Panthers red zone scoring at a near season low, this was a crucial play that has gone overlooked.
