Kasay finally misses: Still 30-10 Carolina

Panther kicker John Kasay just missed from 41 yards, leaving Carolina with a 30-10 lead with 3:22 left in the third quarter.

That miss broke Kasay's string of 30 field goals in a row from under 50 yards -- it had been the longest active streak in the NFL. Still, Carolina knocked a lot of time off the clock on the drive.

The Panthers have had some offensive line issues today injury-wise. Jeff Otah has an injured toe and may not return. Geoff Hangartner, the starter at RG, went out with an ankle injury and Jeremy (Dom Perignon) Bridges has played some in his place.

time to draft a kicker..he cost them the home field advantage vs. NY and has now left them exposed @ N.O. today.

Trent, that's not gonna happen with Kasay just extended through 2012 and Rhys Lloyd on the roster and under contract through next season.

Only Mother Nature is to blame for the wind gust that cost us the win, not John Kasey. Kasey is among the finest kickers in the league. Our defense shouldn't have put us in that situation in the first place.
