The Panthers lost in Week One, but there was a lot to like about the performance.

Cam Newton had an incredible first start, Steve Smith seemed like the old Steve Smith, and cornerback Chris Gamble enjoyed a great day tracking Larry Fitzgerald.

Of course, there was a lot not to like too. Defensive leader Jon Beason was lost for the season and special teams gave up a decisive punt return score.

Coach Ron Rivera joined PFT Live Thursday to discuss the good, the bad, and the rest.
