    Difference in schedules gives Panthers somewhat of a chance

    The Saints took control of the NFC South race Thursday night. Such that a 4-4 team can be in control of anything. They’re now clear of the 3-5-1 Panthers after last night’s 28-10 win in Charlotte, but nothing is as it appears in the dirty south (The NSFW South?). The Saints have the edge now,…

    Linebacker Junior Galette made one of the biggest plays of Thursday night’s Saints win when he hit Panthers quarterback Cam Newton from behind in the second quarter to force a fumble that New Orleans recovered on the doorstep of the end zone. They cashed in with the first points of the game a few plays…

But after beating the Panthers on the road Thursday night (which followed beating the Packers Sunday night), Payton was finally ready to let the NFL know how he felt. “I just think it’s foolish,” Payton said, via Katherine Terrell of the New Orleans Times-Picayune. “I’ve got three guys…

    The New Orleans Saints won a critical divisional game on Thursday night, beating the Carolina Panthers by a score of 28-10, but head coach Sean Payton still expressed some sour grapes over how his team was forced to play two games in an incredibly short amount of time.The concept of Thursday night games has been the source of griping from coaches and players alike, but the Saints were dealt an even rawer deal than normal as the team was coming off a Sunday night game against the Green Bay Packers, thus making an already tight window in which a team can rest, recover and prepare that much more…

    While the Saints are weak on the road, we still favor them and their passing attack to take the game 35-24.Drew Brees should throw for three touchdowns, two to Jimmy Graham and one to Brandin Cooks.

    While much of the talk was about whether New Orleans could win a big game - or any game, for that matter - on the road, the conversation in the Saints' locker room was about something completely different. The Saints weren't focused on breaking a seven-game road losing streak dating to last season. They were stinging from their four-point loss at Carolina last December that allowed the Panthers to take control of the NFC South lead and eventually win the division title. So New Orleans' 28-10 victory Thursday night left the Saints (4-4) feeling pretty good.

    This is my last post here, because I'm done with the NFL. So let's get one thing straight from the beginning: this is not a response to the Saints' loss at Seattle. Actually, I had been planning something like this for quite a long time, to be posted after the last game of the season—whatever that game was, however it ended. This is all about the damnable behavior of the so-called men behind the current NFL.

    Three and out. Savor those words. Let them sink into your brain and emboss their shape on your cortex. Three and out. The phrase describes almost perfectly the course of this, one of the epic losses in the long, tawdry history of New Orleans Saints losses. It describes the Carolina offense, which was helpless until it wasn't. It describes the Saints' offense, which needed just ten yards to seal a victory already won, and instead gained no yards at all. I wonder: does it describe the end of our season?

    The Saints' loss to the Seahawks was so one-sided, so crushing a defeat, it seemed there must be shell craters on the New Orleans sideline.

Or are the Seahawks really this good?

    Panthers must find themselves on offense before season is lost

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Nine games into the season the Carolina Panthers have lost their identity offensively.To salvage a season that is close to being lost, they must find a way to get it back.That begins with getting running backs DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart more involved."We are going to have to continue to find more and more chances to use them, more and more situations where we have to put the ball in their hands," coach Ron Rivera said after Thursday night's 28-10 loss to New Orleans.

    Cason benching another signal Panthers secondary has to be addressed

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera insisted cornerback Antoine Cason wasn’t benched late in the first half of Thursday night’s 28-10 loss to New Orleans. The snap counts don’t support that.Cason didn’t return after being called for pass interference against Robert Meachem in the end zone with six seconds left in the half.

    Is Cam Newton becoming too fixated on Kelvin Benjamin?

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Seldom do you see Carolina Panthers rookie wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin without a smile or being playful in the locker room.He wasn’t smiling or playful after Thursday night’s 28-10 loss to New Orleans. His voice was low, and his mood somber.“I just have to be more mature," the 28th pick of the draft said. “Just come in more focused, more ready."Benjamin was struggling for the right words as much as he struggled to make plays as Carolina fell to 3-5-1.

    Falcons rookie James Stone hopes to be rock solid moving forward

    It was far from a flawless first start for James Stone, but the Atlanta Falcons center had reason to hold his head high.Last Sunday's matchup against Ndamukong Suh and the stout Detroit Lions' front was a baptism by fire for Stone, an undrafted rookie out of Tennessee. When he looked over the film with offensive offensive line coach Mike Tice, Stone heard words like "firm in the pocket" and "good push in the run game" to describe his play, although Pro Football Focus gave Stone a minus-1.

    Saints in first place -- and they have defense to thank

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The New Orleans Saints finally won a road game Thursday night, wrestling control of the NFC South away from the Carolina Panthers with an emphatic 28-10 victory.And they did it by literally wrestling the ball away from quarterback Cam Newton with a game-changing sack-fumble in the shadow of his own end zone with the game still scoreless late in the second quarter.Who would've thought? A defense stepped up to turn the tide of a division that had become the NFL's laughingstock because of poor defensive play during the first half of the season.
