THE PANTHERS HAVE THE BEST FRONT FOUR IN FOOTBALL. THAT DISTINCTION USED TO BELONG TO THE GIANTS. I WATCHED EDWARDS, HARDY, HORTON AND JOHNSON MAKE MINCED MEAT OUT OF A 49’ER OFFENSIVE LINE THAT HAS THREE FIRST ROUND PICKS NUMBERED AMONG THEIR STARTERS.

CAROLINA SACKED KAPAERNICK SIX TIMES TODAY—ONLY TWICE ON BLITZES—AND HAD HIM RUNNING FOR HIS LIFE ALL GAME LONG ON HIS WAY TO A PALTRY 42 NET YARDS PASSING.

THAT’S TAMPA BAY BUC-TYPE STUFF BACK WHEN WARREN SAPP, SIMEON RICE, DERRICK BROOKS AND JOHN LYNCH WERE IN THEIR PRIMES (AND, DARE I SAY IT, JOE GREEN, DWIGHT WHITE, LC GREENWOOD, ERNIE HOLMES WHEN THEY WERE IN THEIRS!)

 

OKAY, PERHAPS I’M GETTING A BIT CARRIED AWAY HERE. BUT CONSIDERING THE FACT THAT THE NFL HAS DEVOLVED INTO A GLORIFIED ARENA LEAGUE OFFENSIVELY OVER THE LAST 25 YEARS, LET’S JUST SAY THAT I’M IMPRESSED WITH THE WAY RON RIVERA  HAS HIS TEAM PLAYING ON THAT SIDE OF THE BALL.

NOW IF HE—OR ANYONE ON THE COACHING STAFF—CAN GET CAM NEWTON TO QUIT MAKING STUPID MISTAKES IN TIGHT SITUATIONS, YOU’RE PROBABLY LOOKING AT A LEGITIMATE PLAYOFF TEAM THAT’S BUILT FOR THE RIGORS OF THE POST SEASON WHETHER THEY’RE PLAYING AT HOME OR ON THE ROAD…
