Defense showing no spunk at the beginning of the game again. Last game got to come out fired up and hurt somebody!

Waited to late like all of us have been saying to start Matt Moore! There went the season.

I'll give you some spunk you silly little boy. Where is Michael Procton, I love him.

I like how the undrafted rookie knows more about this panther offense than the 2 number one draft picks.... which is the throw the ball to steve smith

did dwayne jarrett run the ball? i wasn't paying attention... b/c he has 11 yrd rushing

Posted by: chris norman | Dec 30, 2007 1:52:15 PM

Jarrett ran a double reverse.

As Homer Simpson would say, realted to the inactives... "I have no idea who that is"

Fox looks smarter every minute for not playing Matt Moore earlier doesn't he? Look at David Carr on the sidelines. He has his two black gloves on in case there is a need to play. What a freaking dufus. Bet anything Fox puts Vinny in the game before it ends. I never understood that whole Vinny thing, and everyone's affinity for him. What the hell did he ever win? It was stupid, and designed to save Fox's job instead of having the stones to play Moore.

Why is Deshaun Foster not in the game?? What a joke. Deangelo Williams sucks so bad. One lucky run, pathetic. Look at the stats you idiots, just look at the stats. You take away his big runs and he averages 1.9 yards per carry. My boy Foster averages at least 2.0 a carry. Get some. Pathetic John Fox. Put your starting and best running back in the game. I can't watch this crap.

Did anyone ever think maybe Moore wasnt ready earlier in this season and that if he came out and got rattled he would turn into david carr???? Also can Fox get some credit for atleast picking him up.

Posted by: Billy | Dec 30, 2007 4:54:44 PM

Billy, no to both.

Posted by: Willy | Dec 30, 2007 5:13:25 PM

Most people expected Carr to do well. As to people insulting him for being ready to play, would you rather he be off someplace else?

I really wanted Carr to work out here, and I'm disappointed he did not. I wish him well wherever he lands next.

As to Foster vs Williams, great, Foster averages .1 yard more than Williams. Good for him. Too bad Foster has all those big game-breaking runs to his credit? Oops, wait, that's Williams, not Foster. The only reason Foster plays over Williams is because of blocking.

Michael, if you can't watch this crap please quit and shut up. Williams is the man loser

I'm surprised anyone would prefer Foster over Williams. "You take away his big runs and he averages 1.9 yards per carry." uh, buddy, those big runs still count ! Also one of DeAngelo runs was a 1yd TD run. Guess What? After you are in the endzone you dont get to keep on running to boost your average.

If you take away Williams' top 5 runs
(14,13,18,13 and 32) then Williams had an average of 2.06yds/carry

If you do the same and subtract Foster's top 5 runs (12,7,7,5,5) then Foster had an average of 1.66yds/carry

Foster had 1 run of 10+ out of 11 carries.
Williams had 5 runs of 10+ out of 20 carries.

3 of Williams carries were for 1yd AFTER Carolina was up 31-23 when running the clock and NOT fumbling was most important.

Deshaun Foster 7 fumbles and lost 5
DeAngelo Williams 0 fumbles rushing

My vote is CLEARLY for Williams.

Michael Procton said "One lucky run, pathetic. Look at the stats you idiots, just look at the stats."

I did. There they are.

But I forgot a couple of stats:
DeAngelo Williams yds/carry average= 5.0
Deshaun Foster's yds/carry average= 3.4

# of Carries and total yards rushing
Williams 144 carries for 717yds
Foster 247 carries for 876yds

So with those extra 103 carries Foster only gained 159 yds more yards.

LMAO I can't believe people don't know sarcasm when they hear it.

Waaaaaaahh Waaaaaahh Waaahhhhhhh!!! Give it a rest, creepos! Moore's peroformance was no better or worse than any other Panther QB this year (that includes Delhomme)!! As a matter of fact, you haters are usually harping on mistakes made... why aren't you harping on Moore's?!? The guy looked like what he is today, an unseasoned rookie making a ton of errors. Sure they got a "W" --- but against a team that has been resting its key players for a couple of weeks and didn't care wether or not they won or lost. Back to why you people aren't splitting hairs with this particular guy (Moore)--- because you are a bunch of sheeple!!! Pat Yasiknaluskioskiselloutski says that Cowher is god, and you people erect tabernacles in his honor! Yes, Moore is good, but so is Verde, Fox, Foster, Robinson, etc... Even Jake and Meshawn are good, I'll admit, but that does not matter with you people. What matters is that you recite everything you read and hear so you don't sound stupid. Well guess what....

Bottom line... Fox is a great coach! Moore was not played until he was ready to handle the responsibility... Williams has not received more carries until he was willing to show that he is not scared to hit the holes (and won't start until he shows he can do the rest= pass catching & blocking). The same goes for the rest of this coaching staff's decisions. And for those of you who say "injuries are no excuse" are just a bunch of sheeple!! Of course it's an excuse! Let's see you people do your daily job's with half of your co-workers on IR and a bunch of new guys coming in from nowhere to fill in! If your team does anywhere near as well as the Panthers have this season, than guess what... YOU STILL DON'T HAVE A RIGHT TO CRITICIZE THIS ORGANIZATION AND THE PEOPLE IN IT!!!!!! But what am I wasting my time for?? I don't think some of you will ever get that.

BTW... Happy New Year!!!
