Panthers head coach Ron Rivera gave a vote of confidence to his beleaguered safety Haruki Nakamura by saying he will remain a starter despite giving up the single biggest play in the loss to the Falcons last Sunday. The question is whether he will still be in the lineup against the Cowboys after the bye week.
If Cam Newton is indeed seeing a “mind coach,” then he’d better ask for his money back. Maybe it’s better spent on a media coach. Either way, the young sponsorship beacon was less than polished in his press conference after Wednesday’s Panthers’ practice.
