Steve Smith joins The Drive every Monday to discuss the ins and outs of the the game on Sunday This week Steve talks Panthers fans off the ledge as they lost their season opener to the Seahawks. He discusses the offensive play calling, how Ted Ginn Jr played, and how Cam’s leadership has changed on the sideline.
Ok, it was another tough loss for the Cats on Sunday vs Seattle. Time to take a deeper look at the game, with a few interesting numbers for the contest.
Last week I was 4-1 with my only loss coming at the hands of Northwestern who failed to cover the spread as a favorite. Pretty good for a guy whom Taylor and Marc rip every week on not knowing college football.
It’s that time QC sports fans. The Panthers are starting a new season and I feel like it can be a special one. I think they have a chance at a special win on Sunday. But, they need to do these 4 things…..
The Drive Thursday 9-5-13 – Luke Kuechly talked with The Drive about being voted a team captain, we get his thoughts on the quarterback for the Seahawks Russell Wilson, and if he senses any added pressure on this years team in order to save Ron Rivera’s job. Plus we ask the second year linebacker what his personal goals are for this season, if he’s ready for the responsibility that comes with being a captain and what he likes to when he’s away from football.
The Drive Wednesday 9-4-13 – Warren Moon talks with The Drive about what its like for a player when the last few days before the season approach, what his relationship with Cam Newton is like now, and if he sees the third year quarterback is ready to handle losing in a more professional way.
The Carolina Panthers really, really, really need to beat the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. The franchise hasn’t had a winning record at any point since the 2008 season, their 6-12 in openers, and have only made the playoffs once after losing the first game. More importantly, Ron Rivera and Cam Newton have never taken the field with a winning record. Fine, the first game isn’t a must win, but its as close as it gets.
This week was the final week that starters were likely to appear in the preseason, offering fans one more indiscernible glimpse of what may lie ahead in the ensuing 17 weeks of NFL battle.
