Panthers by the numbers entering Tennessee game

Some interesting Panther numbers as the team prepares for the start of the second half of its season, vs. 4-4 Tennessee Sunday at home:

1 -- TDs scored by Tennessee running back Chris Johnson, who has had a terrible year so far by his standards after getting a huge contract (3.0 rushing average, 366 yards -- only 47 more than Cam Newton).

3 -- NFL teams with fewer wins the 2-6 Panthers (0-9 Indianapolis, 1-7 St. Louis and 1-7 Miami)

7 -- Charles Johnson's number of sacks through eight games, which ties "Big Money" for sixth in the NFL in that category.

27 -- The Panthers' defensive rank in rushing yards allowed per game. They are giving up 133.2 per game and will try not to be the defense Chris Johnson gets well against Sunday.

42 -- Yards that Steve Smith trails New England's Wes Welker by for the overall NFL receiving yardage lead (960 to 918).

299.1 -- Newton's average passing yards per game, which now ranks him fifth behind the four quarterbacks averaging 300-plus (Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers and Philip Rivers).

I wanna see our D get crazy in this game. We need someone to go nuts, go for the jugular and inspire this team and get the D going.

I'm talking no mercy, like that Suh guy from the Lions. Anything less than one titan carted off the field won't be enough.

Titans are 4-4 but could easily be 7-1.

Bengals beat the Titans by 5 last week.

Cinc Bengals rookie QB Dalton from TCU is 6-2.

Carolina Pansies QB is 2-6. Go fig.

The 2 bottom feeder rookie QBs are Pansie Newton and Jag Gabbert both at 2-6 if any consolation.

Titans by 16

To that anonymous bashing Newton, stay anonymous. Newton is a better quarterback than Dalton. Cam is responsible for 18 touchdowns. Dalton has played subpar teams while having a good defense on his side. Cam doesn't really have much of a defense helping him. Go back and watch the games, Cam isn't the reason we lost those leads. In fact, he regained those leads but our defense couldn't stop a pop warner team when they need to. Bengals will be exposed against the Steelers and Ravens (each twice), then Houston.

Thats true. Cam is way too good to be on that terible team playing for these sorry fans.
We only hope when the season is over he takes that 95 million offer in Chicago and leaves that terrible place.
Cam hates it there. He hates the fans worse of all.
