Where is the Carolina offense? Right here, Bank of America Stadium. Down in Columbia Williams-Brice has lightning. Panthers have some, too.
First series of the game. Second play. Derek Anderson hits Ted Ginn Jr. for 13 yards. Fourth play, Anderson hits Brandon LeFell for 12 yards. Fifth play, Anderson hits Domenik Hixon for 16 yards. Fifth play, Anderson hits Ginn for 35 yards and a TD.
Second quarter, first and 20 from the Carolina 13. Ginn goes deep and Anderson hits him for 87 yards. Ginn starts fans and, as he runs the route, becomes faster. Haven't seen speed like his in a Panther uniform since Steve Smith was young.
Yes, with San Francisco last season Ginn caught two passes for one yard. Yes, he was working against deep reserves when he caught the 87 yard TD Thursday.
But the speed is real, and he makes the competition for the No. 3 spot intriguing.
