"The play call looked conservative, but turned out big: Jonathan Stewart took a handoff to the left side, burst into the secondary and rambled 45 yards for the game-clinching touchdown." --- Yeah, it was conservative, but why give them any real credit, right???
And it's about time Jake woke up. I guess he had to wait until things looked dismal (as far as playoff hopes and expectations) before he gave it some serious effort, evident by how he ran with the ball when he couldn't find anyone open. He did become ineffective in the second half though. I guess having a game lead is like kryptonite to him--- or more like what cholrine is to bacteria (the last thing I want to do is compare his on-field performances to Superman).
It would be great to get revenge on Dan Henning Thursday. It would be also be fantastic to watch them go to Foxboro and humble the Paper Champions once again! Hopefully, by then, the team will be behind again so Jake can have a good performance.

"Of course, the question beckons, why didn’t the Panthers turn to it earlier in the season when they were trying to find their way in the passing game?"---Carolina Growl, about the hurry up offense and how effective it was in the first half.
... to answer the question with the obvious, because JAKE HAS BEEN HORRIBLE!! Pathetic accuracy (or lack thereof), bad decision making and straight up playing scared. Why would ANY intelligent coach give him even more responsibility???
Finally, it was just a half!!! It was not even the whole game that he did that well, and already they are calling Fox (and Davidson) an idiot for not throwing "caution to the wind" sooner... Are they serious!?!
Look, it will be great if this trend continues, especially for an entire game! That will not chage history however. Jake was horrible and Fox was forced to play to his strengths..... PERIOD!!!

I see the play off happening. Check the standings, we are only 1 game away! (ok, not with tie breakers but still)
We should beet Jets, Bucs, Saints (that are melting down) and Miami. I see 2 wins against NE, Minnesota and Giants as possible. Sure it is not likely but possible. So show some faith in your team guys, Fox teams usually finishes strong!

What is the status of the game for Thursday. I have heard that it will be picked up by local TV, is this true?

This season has a familiar feel to the 2007 NY Giants' season. I can only hope it ends as well.
