I did a radio show out of New York. One of the hosts was in Charlotte last week and said he had never seen so many churches in one town. He asked me how a city that spends so much time in church could be so angry about Carolina's loss to Arizona.
I asked him if he was aware of the Inquisition.
One misconception going around is that Panther coaches are leaving because they failed to please Julius Peppers. Every coach that has left, with the exception of defensive coordinator Mike Trgovac, went to a better job or a better contract.
I'm more convinced than ever that Peppers will never play for Carolina again. One Panther told me that after the Arizona game Peppers went to some of his teammates and told them how much he had enjoyed playing with them.
At that moment, said the Panther, he knew Peppers was gone.
