    No doubt the Panthers need to consider drafting a QB this year. Somebody like JeMarcus Russell would be good for them. Jake isn't getting any younger and they don't have anyone behind him. Anyways, back to the game, I felt the play calling was attrocious on that final drive. They could at least tried to run it in. Deangelo was having some success there towards the end and they had two time outs.

    Those were my thoughts also....especially considering the next point:

    Again, when you throw the ball, only three things can happen, and two of them are bad. 33.333% odds on a game-winning drive are not the odds I would want to play given the Panthers' 4th-quarter record this year and the success of DeAngelo Williams' running game.

  6. Weinke sucks. No way you replace Delhomme for Weinke.

    I've gotta go with Thunder....that INT was all Keyshawn. He got bumped and turned around a good five yards from the sideline...on a FADE pattern. I won't pretend to know the Panthers' playbook, but last time I checked, a fade is thrown to the sideline, over the receiver's outside shoulder. Key just ran the wrong route.

    The only other possibility is that Key and Jake weren't on the same page; it's possible that Key broke off the fade to a short curl route, and Delhomme stayed with the fade. If that's the case, then it's a simple and unfortunate miscommunication that ultimately cost them the game.

    I am only going on what I saw in the first half. They ran that same exact play for a touchdown, and Keyshawn did go to the back of the end zone. I think he broke it off after getting held up, hoping Jake would see him, but he had already released the ball. As we all know, a fade is timing, and the ball is released immediately.

    I thought that one was pretty well-known.
