    The loss of this game is one of the worst in Panther history.  Being an avid fan it is difficult to see all the mistakes with such good players.  Injuries are a little much, but they are no excuse for just bad play by some of the players. it is hard to believe this is a team that went 11-5 last  year.  Oh well, I will watch the game next week and maybe something will change.  Go Panthers and keep, no start pounding.
