The Carolina Panthers will play their fourth consecutive game against an opponent they have no business losing to. And if they knock off the Atlanta Falcons at home, they’ll at worst be tied for the final ah off spot in the NFC with half of the season remaining. What’s the biggest reason for their turnaround? Cam Newton. He has played incredibly smart football during their three game winning streak, utilizing his athleticism, and making smart decisions with his arm. If uses the same approach on Sunday things are going to really get fun in the Queen City.

I know the big game is between FSU and Miami this weekend, but I can’t believe how irrelevant NC State vs North Carolina is outside of their fanbases. Right now the two schools with the most resources are the two worst football programs in the state. That is truly pathetic. The Wolfpack’s Dave Doeren gets a much longer rope than UNC’s Larry Fedora because it’s only Doeren’s first season. But both programs are dealing with sins from past regimes- all hell breaking loose off the field in Chapel Hill, and terrible recruiting in Raleigh. One wonders if these two programs will ever live up to their potential.
