First quarter blog: Titans 14, Panthers 0

The Panthers started off poorly against Tennessee and just got worse.

After going 3-and-out on their opening possession, the Panthers allowed Marc Mariani to break free for a 76-yard punt return for a touchdown about a minute into the game.

It was the third time this year the Panthers have allowed a punt return for a touchdown. And it was the 11th allowed by Panthers punter Jason Baker, the most among active punters.

The Panthers moved the ball on their next series. But a fumble by tight end Greg Olsen at the Titans' 8-yard line continued the season-long problems in the red zone.

The Titans went 92 yards in six plays to go up 14-0, bringing out the boobirds at Bank of America Stadium.

Thank goodness we kept Baker instead of Kasay. Paying all KINDS of dividends!

It's a shame the rookie QB is playing like a veteran and the veterans are playing like rookies.

Offensive line don't want to block today.

The rookie QB was lucky the interception he threw was called back on a holding penalty. He has been lucky like that a few times this season like the interception called back in their opening game against the Cardinals.

stop hating "out of town panther fan" you can say that about any player in the NFL, sometimes luck is a key factor in determining the outcome of the game. Watch some real football and not just the stat line.

@ out of town panther fan. Actually that reciever for the panthers/te or whoever should have step into that pass instead of just waiting there for the ball. Learn football before you run your mouth.
