Official Panthers - Colts Gameday Thread

eSPN has posted some interesting pre-game stats:

Here's an excerpt.  There are also stats on the Colts.

The Elias Sports Bureau tells us that only two teams have had a better start than the Panthers following a losing season since the AFL/NFL merger in 1970. The St. Louis Cardinals started 7-0 in 1974 and the Kansas City Chiefs started 9-0 in 2013.

Defense has been the key to success during the 10-game win streak.

The Panthers entered Week 8 ranked second in points per game allowed (15.3) and turnover margin (+10) since the start of their winning streak in Week 14 of last season. During that span, the Panthers’ 4.8 yards per play allowed ranks third in the NFL behind the Denver Broncos (4.4) and Seattle Seahawks (4.5).

Cam Newton's great play late in games has been another key.

Newton is one of three qualified quarterbacks who have not thrown a fourth-quarter interception this season. Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers are the others.

Newton has a fourth-quarter Total QBR of 93 this season, highest in the NFL. The last quarterback with a higher fourth-quarter Total QBR over a full season was Peyton Manning in 2006 (94), the year he led the Colts to a Super Bowl title.

ESPN sideline reporter just stated on NFL Insiders (from BOA rainy, tarped field btw) that it will be Velasco getting the start.

 

 

That sucks. At least the Colts don't have a dominant interior line.

If your not sweating after eating hot wings, your not eating hot wings. 

 

The wife had some wings like things at a Mexican Restaurant one time. She asked if they had any hotter sauce, so they brought her some. She then asked if they had any that was actually hot. They said they had some the employees use. When they brought it out, all the kitchen staff were standing at the door watching her. She broke out in a sweat, but she ate them all. Needless to say, almost everyone came over to talk to her.

 

I can't do that hot, but the wife is one tough SOB. She says all the time. "If you aren't sweating, it ain't hot enough".

Almost 25 years. Been together since the night we met. Couldn't get rid of her if I tried. Not that I've tried too hard...yet. Although, she still has no clue about football. When Ryan got dragged down she asked how that guy got away with that. She still doesn't understand that having the football in your hands is dangerous.

 

Thankfully, she pretty much leaves me alone when the Panthers, and Michigan State play. So she's got that going for her.

 

Don't know why I felt the need to add that. I guess I still like talking about her. Kinda sucks in a needy kind a way.

So no Shaq, Kalil, Addison, or Edwards tonight....not having Kalil worries me, but if he has a bum ankle and this rain does not stop I for-sure would not want to risk him. He HAS to be ready to go come January. Hopefully both shaq and Kalil will be ready for GB.

Interesting from Adam Schefter..

5. Detroit trades wide receiver Calvin Johnson to the Panthers for a second-round pick, plus a fourth.

Detroit's season is already effectively over in terms of competing for a playoff spot, and it's time for a reboot, which means getting draft assets wherever it can. The Lions can get back an extra pick (or more), while the Panthers could land the stud wide receiver they need to compete for an NFC South title -- a move that would be wildly popular in the Carolinas. Remember, Johnson is now over 30, very expensive, and Detroit won't be able to shop him forever.

So, if true that Shaq & Kalil are out, our likely inactives would be:

Addison, Edwards, Kalil, Shaq, Marlowe, Wegher and Norwood.

Glad we don't have more injuries, but sure would love it if those latter three could get some game time at some point... maybe late in the season if we've clinched the division early?
