Baltimore clobbers Carolina, 37-13

Baltimore just clobbered Carolina, 37-13, to drop the Panthers to 1-9 this season.

The Ravens led the entire way, but Carolina actually got within a touchdown early in the fourth quarter on Brian St. Pierre's 88-yard TD pass to David Gettis. That made it 20-13, Baltimore, and gave the Panthers a bit of life.

But from then on, the Panthers crumbled. First, Baltimore drove for a field goal. Then St. Pierre threw two straight interceptions that were returned for TDs only 11 seconds apart, and that made a 23-13 game into a 37-13 rout. Baltimore, which hadn't scored a defensive TD all season, scored two in a couple of heartbeats.

About all that was left in the stadium at the end were a couple of thousand Ravens fans, chanting "Let's go, Ravens!" and generally making Bank of America Stadium their own. It was only the latest in a series of embarrassing moments for the Panthers.

Baltimore QB Joe Flacco was superb, throwing for 301 yards and continually eluding the Panther rush as the Ravens improved to 7-3.

The Panthers have lost their last 3 games by 31, 15 and 24 points, respectively.

Panther coach John Fox went with St. Pierre the entire way at quarterback, even after the back-to-back interceptions that resulted in TDs.

Fox also insisted on using all his timeouts at the end of the game when down by 24 points. He then ran the ball twice once he got it back. Panther RB Mike Goodson did have a second straight 100-yard rushing game, including a 45-yarder.

The Panthers proved one thing. They can go from one score away to a tie, then a 24 point loss faster than any team in the NFL.

Bravo Jerry Richardson. We prove again we are beyond a doubt the worst team in the NFL by far but you sure saved those free agency bucks for your own well being!

PSL's aren't worth dirt but hey....you sold most of them anyway!!!

You go girl...and raise those ticket prices again for 2011/12!!!!!

Fox just praised Pepe' Le Pew saying he did an "amazing job"

Has Richardson's health lead to a decline in judgement? He has a heart transplant then starts making lots of poor business decisions. Maybe he should have turned the team over to his sons instead of firing them.

Jerry, maybe it is time for you to defer to other family members before the Panther franchise is totally destroyed. If you are lucky maybe John Fox will agree to stay.

John Fox is definitely a better asset the Jerry Richardson is at this point.

I got two tickets to today's game in a promotion and gave them to Ravens fans here in Raleigh. Hope they had a good day. So what did Armanti Edwards do to not even deserve a tryout at QB? How could anything be worse than this?

Who is starting at Q-back next week? Barney Fife? The Panthers and the coaching staff are now the biggest joke in NFL history! ROFLMAO! I LOVE it for all the PSL holders! Feel smart and big-shotty now dontcha!

ARMANTI EDWARDS IS NOT A NFL QB...I THOUGHT YOU CHRIS LEAKE FANS WENT AWAY YEARS AGO. ON THAT NOTE IF THE PANTHERS NEVER GAVE LEAKE A SHOT AT QB WHAT MAKES YOU THINK THEY WILL GIVE IT TO A NAIA QB.

anon says "ARMANTI EDWARDS IS NOT A NFL QB". So what? None of our QBs are NFL quarterbacks.

Not only does the team suck, but you can't even smoke. What is the point of going to the game?

Buffalo won, so now the Carolina Panthers have the honor of the WORST record in the entire NFL.

Watching or should I say listening to the game today on T.V. was very sad.It is ridiculous that each time Heap touched the ball you could hear the his named chanted very loud and crystal clear. You would have thought the game was in Baltimore.I'm still shocked that our team who were the NFC South Champs two seasons ago have come to this. Mr. Richardson you should be ashamed.

With the first pick in the 2011 draft, the Carolina Panthers select...

Jake Delhomme said...

Hey everybody, miss me yet?

Brendan said...

So who should they take for the first pick? Offense needs weapons. Free agent QB and draft WR like A.J. Green?

John Fox should be fired now.Why wait til the end of the season?

Happy2ride said...

Playing St Pierre was a spiteful move against Mr Richardson, calling all those time outs at the end and then running the ball was a knife-in-the-back to all the fans.
Never thought John Fox to be so petty.

The only thing the Panthers organization can do to make amends for this pathetic excuse of a football team is to 1) send us back at least half the money they stole from us before the season started and they cheaped out, and 2) get rid of the crap on the field they call 'talent' and get some professionals to run the place, and 3) APOLOGIZE publicly to the fans.

This is hideous.

Let's hope for Jim Harbaugh and Luck.

John Fox said...

Hey everybody, I'm resigning tomorrow but this time next week you'll be begging me to come back.

EXCUSE ME JOE, if the fans are that big of an issue, why didnt you get your a@@ off the couch and go to the game, with YOUR Panthers jersey on and cheer for the Panthers, instead of calling out the still loyal fans that did?

And YES I DID!!!

HARRY V said...

Come on people, at this pace Carolina will have to first draft pick in next years draft. Andrew Luck will be a big improvement on anything in Uniform at the moment. Maybe the owner can trade for Jake since he's riding the pine in Cleveland.

Baltimore Sun's take on Jerry's masterpiece....

"The Panthers are atrocious."

I watched this game on TV from Baltimore... um... when was the last time the Panthers sold out? The stadium looked half-empty and I could here a lot more Ravens cheers than Panthers cheers.

Thank goodness we didn't pursue Michael Vick before the season started. He might have won a few games for us. At least we don't have a criminal on the team...right?
