Immaculate Perception? Robbed Gronkowski? Nicknaming the big play

I asked the Twitterverse on Tuesday to come up with a nickname for the last play of the Panthers-Patriots game Monday night, when Carolina linebacker Luke Kuechly was first flagged for pass interference against New England tight end Rob Gronkowski in the Panther end zone with 0:00 on the clock. Then the call was reversed after the officials determined Gronkowski couldn't have caught the ball anyway, and the Panthers won, 24-20. Had the original call stood, the Patriots would have gotten one play from the 1 to try and score a game-winning touchdown.

Here were some of the best entries, all submitted via Twitter to @Scott_Fowler. A three-person panel judged "Immaculate Perception," written by David Wood, as the winner of the modest prize -- a copy of my new book chronicling the Panthers. Thanks to all who entered.

Time to move on to Miami,Here`s a interesting statistic I`m here`in from the Miami crowd the Dolphins always beat the Panthers, In the 5 meetings they`ve played Miami has owned the Panthers in every outing. Ron you have a chance here to do something no other Carolina Panther coach has ever done,Rally the troops and coaching staff for yet another huge game and win this to add it to your accomplishments as coach of the Panthers...Go Panthers
