When the Panthers had to be creative, they weren't. When they had to make a play, they couldn't.
They had opportunities, Delhomme to Steve Smith and Delhomme to Dwayne Jarrett. But Jarrett back peddled and couldn't grab the pass. Smith went one way and Delhomme's pass another. It's mid-November and Delhomme and Smith apparently ran different plays.
