Some mid-game notes from Panthers-Vikings

-- Carolina's Cam Newton hadn't lost a fumble all season until Sunday. He lost two in the first half, both of them leading to Vikings touchdowns.

-- Adrian Peterson is such a good running back that he seemed to be bottled up through most of the first three quarters (it was 21-all entering the fourth) and yet he also scored twice.

-- Gorgeous day in the stadium. I went to the top row of the 500 Section to get a feel for the atmosphere, and the fans were really into it.

-- The Panthers continue to have problems defending the tight end on pass plays up the middle of the field.

3rd and 10, 3rd and 10, 3rd and 10 over and over and then give up a 1st down. Hey Panthers defense, what's the point of playing hard for the first two downs only to give the opponent a 1st down on 3rd and 10?

Why would anyone think that the same level of education, smarts, possessed by the occupy Wall Street protesters wouldn't run through a professional football team? Sooner, or later that stupidity will rise to the surface, and it's hard to overcome the penalties that go with such actions.
