NFL, union launch joint review of Panthers' handling of Cam Newton injury

NFL, union launch joint review of Panthers' handling of Cam Newton injury

This has the potential to be the game of the weekend as you have one of the best offenses in the league going against the top defensive unit in the NFL.

The Panthers have since claimed that Newton was ordered to go down to deal with an eye injury suffered on the play, and Newton himself also said his helmet pressed down over his eyelid, causing discomfort.

Panthers officials maintained Monday that Newton, following instructions from the sideline, took a knee so backup QB Derek Anderson could get warmed up. "I mean, he was injured". How can we apply pressure and how can we get them off their balance?' It looks as though they could have put him back into the game despite Newton suffering a concussion.

Panthers: Begin the offseason after their fourth trip to the playoffs in five years lasted on game.

So, the Panthers came in with a defensive plan that was created to clog the running lanes and put the onus on the passing game.

That was as close as they got, prolonging a painful trend in an excruciating 31-26 loss Sunday night in the NFC wild-card round. "I feel like plenty of times this year it was up to me". Ginn has now put together the best three-year stretch of his career after his 30 birthday with the Panthers and Saints. The only remaining players from the teams are Vikings defensive end Brian Robison, and Saints quarterback Drew Brees and punter Thomas Morstead.

"He was a lot like me", said Johnson, who came out of Southern Cal with more fanfare as the No. 1 overall pick by the New York Jets in the 1996 NFL Draft.

Last offseason, Carolina coaches talked about getting into more two tight end formations and developing quarterback Cam Newton into a pocket passer, all while maintaining their power run game philosophy. In 2012, the league ruled there was a system in place that paid Saints players bonuses for injuring opposing players.

Carolina Panthers report card: Running game worked, but secondary got scorched

He completed 12 of 23 passes for 87 yards, with a touchdown.

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer, who came to Minnesota in 2014, was at the 2009 championship game in the stands because his son, Vikings linebackers coach Adam Zimmer, was then a New Orleans assistant.

With the Panthers in position for their first lead, Newton was called for intentional grounding, which cost 13 yards, a loss of down and a 10-second runoff.

Rivera didn't agree with the penalty.

"I didn't know he was a fan of my dress code". That's tough. That's a tough one to handle. "Nevertheless, that's flattering to me", the Panthers' quarterback said, via ESPN.

"That was huge. I think it blew the whole thing wide open", said Brees, who needed to take advantage on a day when Carolina was clearly intent on stopping New Orleans' dynamic rushing duo of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara (a combined 45 yards on 19 carries). I though the ball was past the line of scrimmage. "You just sense it around your team you get to this stage of the season, the experience these guys have varies".

Brees passed for 376 yards and two touchdowns, but one more completion would have considerably lowered the stress level on the Saints' sideline.
