How many times can a team utter the phrase "Thank goodness it's only preseason?"
The Panthers may be approaching their limit. After their 0-3 preseason start, they have already managed to go down 7-0 in Fake Game No.4 following an 80-yard Pittsburgh punt return for a TD.
How'd Carolina get behind so fast? Carolina got the ball and started with a nine-yard run by DeAngelo Williams.
On second-and-1, a nice offensive call: a play-action pass to a wide open Muhsin Muhammad. Unfortunately, Moose dropped a nicely thrown ball 15 yards downfield.
Then, on 3rd-and-1, the Steelers defense did what it does -- stacked DeAngelo up for a 2-yard loss.
Then came the clincher: a 52-yard Jason Baker punt followed by an 80-yard punt return for a TD by Pittsburgh's Stefan Logan.
