Carolina was as bad as it has ever been Sunday. It was dominated by a team without a quarterback. It couldn't move the ball, couldn't stop Chicago from moving the ball and its special teams were abysmal.
Every Panther first down felt like a reason to celebrate. The Bears ripped off big gains against Carolina early and the Panthers couldn't even pretend as if they would come back.
You can say that their bye week next Sunday is coming at the right time. But I disagree. The Panthers and their fans will have two weeks to remember Sunday's performance.
