Carolina Panthers Vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The bumbling Panthers take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Bank of America Stadium today.  Kickoff is 1:00 PM ET.  Fox is carrying the game.

Panthers’ fans are ready for this season to be over.  The NFC South Division is the home of the suckiest teams in the league.  The Falcons and the Saints are both 5 and 8.  The Panthers at 4-8-1 are only slightly better than the 2-11 Buccaneers.

With the arrogant Newton sidelined with two transverse process fractures in his lower back due to a vehicle crash earlier in the week, fans finally get to see backup QB Derek Anderson take the reins.

The Panthers have been, to say the least, disappointing this year.  I blame Coach Ron Rivera and QB Cam Newton.  Rivera refused to play 9-year veteran Derek Anderson when it became clear early in the season that Newton was experiencing delusions of grandeur.

Anderson had a great game against the Bucs in Week 1 completing 24 of 34 passes for 230 yards and two TDs.  I’ve been begging the Panthers organization to bench Newton and play Anderson instead.  He’s proven himself capable of winning and he’s not narcissistic.

And because no football post would be complete without pom-poms, here’s a photo of Top Cat Whitney.  Have a great Sunday.
