Steve Smith joined us in studio for his weekly visit. Here are some of the highlights from Tuesday’s show. We start by asking Steve how the Panthers can turn this season around, then we talk about the dropped balls that the receivers had during the game in Arizona, and we talk about Cam Newton and if he is the franchises quarterback for the future. Plus much more…
The Panthers are 1-3 for the third straight year under Rivera. Can they still make playoffs?
Cam Newton sacked seven times, picked off three more as Panthers offense and defense sputter to a 1-3 record.
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Seven sacks, three interceptions and a lost fumble. Cam Newton had a miserable Sunday in Arizona.
Carolina 3 3 0 0— 6
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — The Cardinals gave Cam Newton a rough reception in his return to Arizona.
The health of the Panthers secondary is much better than two weeks ago and the bye could not have come at a better time.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The Panthers are hoping flamboyant defensive end Greg Hardy can get healthy before Sunday and build on the momentum he helped create before the bye week.
At the end of most seasons, teams can look back at a turning point or a key stretch and say “that’s where our season was decided.”
