So this Sunday the Panthers looked like they do just about every week….good enough to loose! The game started with the Vikings running the ball 78 yards off the opening kick and the Panthers going two play before they turn the ball over and the Viking score 7 off the Carolina mistake. Now by the game starting off with such Viking gusto, one would think the Vikings had the Cat-in-the-Bag? Rookie QB C. Ponder made friendly with Adrian Peterson & Percy Harvin all game for huge yard pick-ups and excellent Viking field position. Wait, we’re talking about Carolina not praising Minnesota! The Panthers played awful…and that’s putting it nicely! For every good thing they did (on offense) they followed it up with bad plays, poor running and mostly PENALTIES! —> if ever the NFL decides to give points for penalties, Carolina would be leading the league!
Steve Smith did everything in his power to help his team win yesterday’s match-up including making catches that got back penalty yards, 100 receiving yards on the day and a touchdown, however his amazing efforts, it wasn’t enough for the Panthers to win. The Panthers Defense continues to get exploited in the middle of the field and for some reason the Defensive Coordinator doesn’t make the necessary adjustments at the half to keep the Panthers from looking bad for the second half of the game. The saddest moment of the game came at the very end with Olindo Mare missing the game tying field goal. The Panther have a week to Ponder over their high anticipated team and disappointing record before facing the Titans.
