CIncy now leads 20-7 midway through 4th quarter

Cincinnati just took what is likely an insurmountable lead, given Carolina's offensive problems. With 8:11 to go in the fourth quarter, Cincinnati leads, 20-7, following a short touchdown pass from Carson Palmer to Cedric Benson.

That score was set up by Jonathan Stewart's lost fumble -- the Panthers' fourth turnover of the game. Cincinnati started with the ball on Carolina's 37 because of the turnover.

The Panthers' defense looked poor on the drive, giving up those 37 yards in three plays. They once again had trouble guarding Cincy tight end Jermaine Gresham, who has given them fits for much of the game on short screens and flare-outs.

On the plus side for Carolina, the Panthers finally have a sack by a defensive lineman (Charles Johnson) and a catch by Steve Smith (although it took more than 50 minutes in this game for him to get it).

Clausen at least looks like an NFL quarterback (albeit a rookie one in his first start), as opposed to Matt Moore, who's looked like a hopeless mess for a couple of weeks.

R-E-B-U-I-L-D LET'S GO!

Another stellar performance by the Panthers! Tell me PSL owners - is it the rain and cooler temps - or paying $25 for parking only to leave after the first half you find more exhilarating?

Stand and cheer for the Panthers
Stand and cheer for the team
The pride of both Carolinas
And city of the queen
Carolina!

Stand and cheer for the Panthers
In our grand ol' name
Nothin' could be finer
Than to be in Carolina
For a Panther football game!

The Panthers at least look like an NFL team (albeit the Detroit Lions). Jerry Richardson at least looks like a pro sports team owner (albeit Robert Irsay). John Fox at least looks like an NFL coach (albeit Wade Phillips) and at least Jeff Davidson looks like an NFL offensive coordinator ... well actually, all he really is ... is offensive.

In the words of SO MANY who commented during the preseason debacle, "Calm down everybody - once we get everyone healthy, Matt Moore, Double Trouble, Steve Smith and this killer defense, the Panthers will be fine!

WOW - your football knowledge is dead on!

Well...at least they're consistent. All three losses by 13 points? The last two losses the exact same score? Consistency at its finest.
