Panthers rolling early over the Buccaneers

The Panthers have had an annoying tendency to play down to competition for much of the Ron Rivera era.

It appears they’re putting that reputation to rest, at least for a night.

The Panthers are off to a 14-3 lead over the winless Buccaneers after a pair of long touchdown drives.

DeAngelo Williams just ran in from 12 yards out to cap a six-play, 80-yard drive. And that one looked like a hurry-up offense compared to the 15-play, 70-yard drive which preceded it. Cam Newton hit Greg Olsen for a touchdown to end that one.

Newton’s a clean 9-of-10 for 98 yards passing, and is showing a well-rounded game so far, running for third down conversions and also showing strength and poise in the pocket.

    At least they are Schiano men playing Buccaneer ball.

    Is anyone listening to Michael Silver? How is this guy given a soap box on tv?

    This Bucs team is worst than the Jags are. All that money spent on their roster for nothing.

    Don’t worry. Coach Schiano says it’s gonna be fine! “We will win our share”. He said the team will turn the corner soon! Maybe he should put THAT on some billboards.
