After an impressive opening drive, Jimmy Clausen imploded. He threw the ball so hard to Mike Goodson it was as if he disliked him. The ball was too hard and too high and it bounced off Goodon's hands and was intercepted.
You could not start a season as terribly as Carolina has started this one. To lose at home to Tampa Bay, in a game that wasn't even close, doesn't cut it.
Carolina ought to start Jimmy Clausen next week at home against Cincinnati, a game the Panthers really do have to win. Youth either will be served or served up.
