- Stink Panthers can’t get out of their own way on offense, and the result is a mercy killing at the hands of the relatively comatose Saints. Thankfully, this is the last time this year we’ll have to watch Cam Newton in prime time; good god has he gone downhill from his meteoric rise during Carolina’s run to the Super Bowl. For whatever reason, Rivera refuses to sit him, bad shoulder and all, and the result is a complete deterioration of his throwing mechanics, not to mention his perennial bad attitude. Tonight’s 2 minute drill was indeed one of the most pathetic attempts to drive a team 50 yards into field goal range in recent memory., and it’s clearly time to say Uncle and give this starter a seat on bench.
As for Brees, he’s been in a funk since the Cowboy debacle, hanging back in the pocket and with difficulty seeing through the trees in front of him (he’ll need magical elevator shoes if he refuses to move), and the NFC looks completely/absolutely wide open. #Saints #Panthers
