End 1st qtr: Panthers 7, Raiders 0


Cam Newton’s 23-yard touchdown pass to Steve Smith has the Panthers up at the end of the quarter.

The Raiders lost Carson Palmer to a rib injury on a hit by Greg Hardy that drew a roughing the passer call for leading with the helmet to the back. Tyvon Branch is questionable to return wiht a foot injury.

On three third-and-1 plays, the Raiders lost five yards on a Darren McFadden run on their first possession, had Palmer knocked out of the game on a third-and-1, and also lost 2 yards on a Matt Leinart pass to Marcel Reece.

    You people are hilarous continuing to defend this inept staff. It’s obvious what Leinart’s place in life is. We need to see what Houdini can do.


    At 4-12, DA and DirtKnapp are trying to stay employed. We’d like to see some life on O, but the coaches are just trying to look respectable. They’re not interested in entertaining us (obviously).

    Coaching staff must think Pryor is a gimmick QB and nothing more. nobody here is in a position to say otherwise outside of our own agendas or biases. that said, leinhart isn’t going to set the world on fire either.Raiders are in a bad place.

    and Fig Newton is garbage, kicks a dude and get away with it. he’ll never win with that attitude.
