Not sure if this was already posted on the Red Board. If so, ignore.
Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers’ offense opened the 2012 NFL season with a thud, struggling to generate anything in a 16-10 loss at Tampa Bay.
The Panthers were the fifth highest scoring team in football last season, and Newton blew through the rookie QB record books. So, what went wrong in Week 1 this year?
Blame the Panthers’ misery on a combination of aggressive defense from the Bucs … and some extremely odd play calling from Carolina’s own offensive coaching staff. http://nfl.si.com/2012/09/12/break-it-down-why-cam-newton-could-not-solve-tampa-bays-defense/?sct=hp_wr_a3&eref=sihp
