Hitting To All Fields: Bigger Blowout – Duke Over UNC Or Deadspin.com Over Panthers Owner Jerry Richardson?
What was the bigger blow-out: Duke over North Carolina in Chapel Hill or Deadspin.com’s exposé of Panthers’ owner Jerry Richardson?
When a bad season is over it is said to have ended mercifully, but in the case of the Panthers there is a real sense that the best is yet to come despite a 7-9 record. Cam Newton may have come of age in a single 60 minutes of play while head coach Ron Rivera gave his boss, Jerry Richardson, something to think about when it comes to his job. Happy New Year, Panthers’ fans!
In a season chocked full of rookie sensations, one is rapidly climbing the Defensive Rookie of the Year ladder. Linebacker Luke Kuechly leads the league in tackles, just like he led the nation at Boston College, and despite the Panthers losing record, he could get serious consideration for the top first year player award. Carolina is also knee deep in players on injured reserve.
In a season filled with injuries, the Panthers are very used to saying, “Next man up.” This week is no different as they have to replace their number one back and number two receiver as they host the 11-1 Falcons who are in a lot better shape, physically.
When the Panthers have an effective running game they are hard to beat, and they proved it against the Saints. DeAngelo Williams got his sidekick, Jonathan Stewart, back in the lineup and the duo combined for 120 of Carolina’s 219 yards on the ground helping QB Cam Newton knock off the New Orleans Saints to even their record at 1-1.
