AP Pro32 comments about Panthers
NEW YORK (AP) Comments on the Carolina Panthers by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):
Chris Berman (ESPN, 29) - Back to drawing board.
Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 22) - Cam Newton's performance and attitude need
Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 25) - Comment currently unavailable
Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 23) - Things don't get easier for Cam and the Panthers against the red hot Falcons.
Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 21) - The Panthers have an average time of possession of barely 25 minutes. That puts too much strain on your defense.
Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 27) - Maybe what we're seeing is Newton's Universal Law of Gravitation at work.
Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 24) - Cam Newton and the offense have hit some bumps in the road and the defensive front struggles to rush the passer and stop the run.
John Lynch (Fox Sports, 22) - Awful against the Giants and now on the road to face the thus far nearly flawless Falcons.
Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 23) - Cam Newton needs to quit his moping. The Panthers will need a much better effort from their second-year quarterback Sunday against Atlanta than it got during a shockingly bad 36-7 home loss to the New York Giants.
Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 23) - Are they coming apart at the seams or just going through some early season growing pains?
