Postgame Q&A

The Panthers escape now-snow covered Green Bay with a 35-31 victory. Post your post-game questions here as comments and Charles and David will answer them a little later on.

I just have a comment. The game ball has to go to Mark Jones for setting up great drives all day long. The Panthers can take the division back this Monday night infront of the whole nation. Now, it's our turn to get some respect and we get to show the league what we're made of. Go Panthers!

how is stewart?

Posted by: bull123 | Nov 30, 2008 5:35:00 PM

Was it just me or did our safeties seem particularly lost and confused today? What were the Packers doing that had them so unsure of where to be?

How much you think they'll fine Peppers for that hit?

How did the defense get to be this bad? The last few games they couldn't tackle. Now they can't pass rush, cover, or stop the run either. That doesn't leave much. I shudder to think what the Giants are going to do to them. I'm relieved they managed to steal this game, but can this defense stop any of the upcoming teams' offenses? Not looking very likely.

Wont 9-7 or 10-6 get us in the playoffs?

David, I would be curious to know what John fox's success rate is for Coach's Challenges. It would also be interesting to see how he compares during his tenure against other coaches. I seems not just this year but in years past that fox success rate would be below 50%.

It ceases to amaze me that even after big wins, fans still come on this board whining and crying about the team. Go root for the Titans and Giants if you think this team is so bad. Do us all a favor please...

What was the deal with Jonathan Stewart's fast burst through the linemen then ran slow toward end zone then fumbled?? He would have SCORE!!

Posted by: Brad Hardin | Nov 30, 2008 5:54:42 PM

Wayne...10-6 may get them in. 9-7 will be very iffy

Posted by: Mike C | Nov 30, 2008 5:56:28 PM

What was the deal with Stewart on that long run? Is he injured?

Posted by: KCPanther | Nov 30, 2008 5:58:23 PM

10-6 won't get them in this year....Their division has two teams 9-3 and Atlanta is 8-4 if you look at the NFC East it is the same way they must win at least 11 to make it to the playoffs...this year in the nfc.

i like stewart the announcers said that he had a cramp and thats why he came up short however, i sure hope our secondary gets on the same page the second half was not very good, but i am glad we pulled it out

Posted by: Thomas | Nov 30, 2008 6:04:14 PM

Why have they moved the Monday Night game to 8PM? Is this something ESPN does or was it done by the league.

Posted by: Dave Morrison | Nov 30, 2008 6:05:55 PM

Do u think that the panthers didn't use the wildcat this game, and limited the week before.. because they need to use it against Tampa bay, because they have good D

Why are the safeties always out of position?

Posted by: SonnyBoy | Nov 30, 2008 6:15:46 PM

Was the personal foul on Peppers legit? Rodgers looked in bounds and ON HIS WAY out, but still in-bounds. If it was legit, was this a case of protecting a QB? QB's are football players too, and should be allowed to get hit like anyone else. Polamalu's statement a few weeks ago about the league being soft keeps getting confirmed more and more.

Sorry for the length of the post/question.

What do you think the chances are on the Panthers-Giants game being moved to prime time with the flex scheduling?

Posted by: Brian | Nov 30, 2008 6:22:39 PM

If the Panthers win this coming Monday night against Tampa won't they still be tied with Tampa for the divison lead. Season head to head 1-1. Divison won loss would be even at 3-2. It then comes down to common opponents and Carolina is currently 6-1 with only Denver to play and Tampa is currently 5-1 with home games against Chargers and Raiders. The next tie breaker is conference record. Panthers would be 7-3 and Tampa would be 1/2 game up at 8-3. Next tie breaker is strenght of victory and currently Tampa has the edge on that. So it looks like even with a win on Monday night the Panthers will still be in seconds. What are the Observer's writers thoughts on the tie breaker situations????

Is Ryne Robinson getting more and more expendable for the Panthers ? It seems Mark Jones is improving with every game. Those last 3-4 Games have been almost eye-popping, we finally got our dependable return man. With Hackett and Jarrett battling for that 3rd Receiverjob(did we ever have 4 or more active receivers this season ?), i guess Robinsons Panther-days are numbered. Just a random question.

Does Trgovac not know what blitzing is?
You could pull a QB from the stands and he would look good against Trgo's defensive schemes.

Posted by: jimmy | Nov 30, 2008 6:38:12 PM

Jones has evolved from "reliable but unspectacular" to "reliable and dangerous" this season. Nice pickup.

Posted by: Authority on Everything | Nov 30, 2008 6:40:02 PM

HEY, aren't all you guys forgetting someone? How about "raise hell" trevelle wharton and ryan kalil? Hot almighty what a game those two studs had!!!!!

Posted by: stork302 | Nov 30, 2008 6:42:09 PM

What gets my goat about Trgovac is that we supposedly have two top-10 cornerbacks but still give 10 yards off the LOS in coverage. Without getting a jam on the WR, we're very vulnerable to short-to-medium routes.
