Despite their win over the Redskins, the Panthers took their lumps last Sunday which included kick return specialist Kealoha Pilares being lost for the season. Once again it is next man up and this time it is David Gettis who will see his first regular season action since 2010.

The way things are going for the Carolina Panthers they might be hard pressed to equal last year’s 6-10 record. With the offense sputtering, a quarterback that hates to lose but continues to do so and a defense that is better but not elite, how close are they from thinking about next season?

Well, yesterday the Carolina Panthers added a little extra incentive to get home faster and read up on all the news. The Panthers, who have never been a team to make too many off-season trades and acquisitions, made not one but two trades yesterday.

Saturday night’s preseason game was the breath of fresh air the Charlotte football fans needed.
