The return of the much loved Hornet's was a success in every way. A sell out crowd met the team, amidst lots of crazyness. Check out the start of the introductions.
Then they looked perfectly lousy for the next 90 minutes. Down 11 at the half, their offense sputtered on poor shooting, and their defense was defense-less. It grew worse in the third quarter, where they fell further behind, all the way to 24 points down with about 7 minutes to...Continue Reading!
An ugly win, maybe, but a Win!
The Panthers came out of their two game funk with just 2 minutes to the half when Cam led the offense to its first touchdown to bring the team to 21-14 (Bears) at the half. It was an impressive drive, he threw with pinpoint accuracy and moved the team downfield, almost effortlessly.
The defense came alive and became what we expected going back to games 1 and 2.
Next up, Cincinnati.

What did we learn about the Panthers strong showing in Tampa?
The Carolina Panthers beat an improving Tampa Bay team 20-14 and answered a major "What If" question along the way, "What if Cam Newton was injured and out for 4-6 Weeks? Would the season be lost?" For many teams the answer would be, "Season Over!" but not here. It turns out that DA, Derek Anderson, who started and ran the same offense prepared for Cam, has the respect of the...Continue Reading!

Let's just say I'm not quite as optimistic as Coach Ron Riveria who assured reporters Cam would be ready...Continue Reading!

Noah Vonleh was a great no. 9 pick for the Hornets as he was projected to go as high as no. 4 or 5. Vonleh played only one college season at Indiana, but with a...Continue Reading!

Well this is getting familiar!
Another Monday, another win, but this time, all eyes are looking forward to the Monday evening match up between the acknowledged heavy weights ahead of the Panthers, the Seahawk's and the Saints. The Panthers very nearly defeated the Seahawk's in the earlier less confident part of the season,and they have the Saints twice in the next four weeks. It is December, and this team will be remembered for how it plays in December.
I can't remember a...Continue Reading!
