MONDAY MORNING QUARTERBACK!! So I was totally wrong thinking me smashing a little Prius bumper with a Pittsburgh sticker on it was some kind of foreshadowing. Luckily no one was injured in the accident. But as far as that Steelers bumper goes…check anywhere on Ballantyne Commons for that junk.
Offense started slow again just like the Lions game. Field goals will not win games. Didn’t we find that out against San Fran last year in the playoffs?
Also Philly Brown will not win you any games. Who? Yes Philly Brown from I have no idea where but he wears the black and blue so I support. What can Brown do for you? He can drop a punt in the 4th quarter right after the defense gets a very quick 3 and out with 11 minutes left in the game down 10 and we need scores. Well Mr. Brown drops the punt and it goes all the way into the endzone recovered by Pittsburgh for a TD and the game was done after that. I’m not blaming the L on Brown at all.
Defense got a nice wake up call. Offense needs Deangelo and Stew out there and maybe some WR that can help Kelvin Benjamin. I think that guy could have been Ted Ginn Jr. Guess who would of been back there last night returning that punt Philly just couldn’t seem to handle? That’s right Ted Ginn. Who knows what if he houses it and Panthers are down 3 instead of 17! Minor details but so costly.
The final score says it all we got beat, bad. However it could have been a different game with a successful punt return or just catching the damn ball!
I have wonderful family members who live in Pittsburgh so I am not generalizing all steelers fans here but at least the people around me last night were the prime time example of a fair weather steelers fan and the lack of class fanmanship was just embarrassing for you and your “fans.”
HOWEVER PANTHER NATION it is only ONE game. Maybe we needed this. A good ol kick in the rear to fire us up and bring us down to Earth.
Apparently there will be blood and guts on the field next week…. I know 89 was my favorite player but this week he’s on the other side. My advice for you 89 ice up before and after the game. You heard it hear on MMQB Smitty will have no more than 50 yards and 0 ZERO touchdowns. Next week we need a strong rebound vs a good AFC North team in a hostile environment.
Like I said it was only one game, luckily there are 13 left. KEEP POUNDING Panther Nation!
