Sunday Night Football Chat: Panthers at Giants

by November 30, 1999 @ 12:00 am (Category : Uncategorized )

With two weeks left in the season, home-field in the NFC playoffs will be decided Sunday night.

The Carolina Panthers (11-3) play the New York Giants (11-3) under the lights at Giants Stadium. The winner will secure the top seed and all the pressure that goes with it.

The loser is still a playoff team, and in the case of the Giants, still a division champion.

We should be safe in assuming that there will be a lot of talk about this being an “NFC Championship preview”. This, of course, likely guarantees that it isn’t.

Predicting The Playoffs: So Many Playoff Scenarios, So Little Time

This was the week when seemingly everyone decided they didn’t want to go to the playoffs. For three weeks, the injury-ravaged Broncos could have earned a playoff spot by simply winning one game. But here we are with a week to play and the Broncos still need one win.

In the NFC wild card race, Dallas came into the weekend controlling its own destiny, but they lost. That then put the ball in the Falcons and Bucs’ court. Atlanta did come through with a win to clinch a playoff spot, but the Bucs also punted their chance with a loss to the Chargers. That meant that the Eagles could put themselves in the driver’s seat with a win over the Redskins (the same team that just lost to the Bengals). Of course Philadelphia lost that game, which means that Dallas is right back where they began the weekend–win next weekend and the Cowboys are in the playoffs.Continue Reading

DeAngelo Williams Credits … Vinny Testaverde (??) for His Breakout 2008 Season

by @ 12:00 am (Category : Uncategorized )

Dec 20th 2008 9:00PM by Will Brinson (author feed)
Filed under: Panthers, NFL Coaching, NFL Real TalkDeAngelo Williams has had plenty of promise since he was drafted as a first rounder in 2006. But after two so-so years in terms of totals (his YPC were still stout) toiling behind DeShaun Foster — for whatever reason — he has finally exploded onto the scene in 2008, racking up 16 total touchdowns and 1,229 yards on the ground.

It was entirely possible that Jonathan Stewart could have taken over the roll of primary back this year too, keeping Williams from starting … but obviously he didn’t. So something must have happened, obviously, to spark this change in Williams’ play. Turns out, it was a convo with Vinny Testaverde. Really.
[…]the once ageless quarterback who, before finally retiring at the end of last season, sat down the young running back and gave some wise, fatherly advice.

“I think he’s probably impacted my season the most this year than anybody because of the conversation that we had before he left,” Williams said Wednesday.

[…]”We had a lengthy conversation and everything he said to me made perfect sense,” said Williams, Carolina’s first-round pick in 2006. “From the film room down to work ethic and everything of that nature. He really left me with some things that really touched me and stayed on my heart, as you can tell from this season.”
It makes complete sense — Testaverde didn’t have a 4,000 year NFL career by not preparing. But it’s still odd to think about Vinny, who only played in Carolina for half a season, having such an impact on Williams, when they’re two totally different players from, well, different generations.

The lesson, as always: Vinny >>> Mittens.

How do we figure out this NFL season? The Giants have been the best team in the NFC all year, but after Sunday’s loss the surging Panthers could catch them. The Titans have been the best team in the AFC all year, but after Sunday’s loss the surging Steelers could catch them.

Yes, we’ve got a wonderful pair of games on Sunday, with the Top 4 teams in our NFL Power Rankings taking each other on and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs on the line. Our rankings of the Big 4 — and the other 28 — are below.Continue Reading

LenDale White Sends DeAngelo Williams a Care Package With a Smash/Dash T-Shirt

by @ 12:00 am (Category : Uncategorized )

Dec 19th 2008 12:39AM by Will Brinson (author feed)
Filed under: Panthers, Titans, NFL Media Watch, NFL Real Talk, NFL RumorsLenDale White is not going to let the whole “Smash and Dash” thing go. In case you missed it the first time around, he called out DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart for hijacking his and Chris Johnson’s nickname and called them out publicly.

The Panthers’ running backs kind of shrugged the business off and went back to not collapsing at the end of the season. LenDale, on the other hand, decided he wanted to let them know who the real owners of the name were. By sending them a little care package.
Inside were two blue T-shirts featuring photos of White and teammate Charles Johnson that read: “Tennessee’s Smash and Dash.”

“These are nice,” Williams said with a laugh as he held up a very large shirt. “I like them. But I wish LenDale had sent me one in my size instead of his.”
Get it? Because he’s fat. Which is a way more humorous insult than trying to grift an unoriginal nickname. The smart thing for White to do would probably be focusing on the Steelers game this weekend instead of trying to rile up a team that plays in another conference.

Not that it should matter much to Williams — he knows darn well he just got snubbed for the Pro Bowl (he’s the first backup) and you can most certainly expect he and Stewart to both run hard against the Giants Sunday night in what amounts to easily the most important game of the season for the NFC.

Between The Lines: Carolina’s Line Keeps Jake Delhomme Clean

As the playoffs get closer and closer, the Panthers may supplant the Plaxico Burress-less Giants as the NFC’s No. 1 seed. If they do, a lot of the credit will go to an offense that can run (with DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart) and pass.

But an even bigger reason the Panthers are 6-1 over the past seven games is because they have finally gotten their starting offensive line playing together.

Early in the season, injuries wrecked the Panthers’ line. First guard Travelle Wharton missed two games with a knee injury. Tackle Jordan Gross missed a game with a concussion. Then ankle injuries sidelined tackle Jeff Otah (four games) and center Ryan Kalil (four games). Because of all the injuries, right guard Keydrick Vincent is the only lineman to start all 14 games this season, and three different Panthers’ substitutes have started a total of 11 games this year.Continue Reading

FanHouse in the Stands: This Guy Needs to Turn in His Man Card

by @ 12:00 am (Category : Uncategorized )

Dec 17th 2008 11:00AM by Stephanie Stradley (author feed)
Filed under: Giants, Panthers, Texans, NFL FansThis season, FanHouse writers take their cameras to NFL stadiums to document what happens when you stop being polite and start getting real. Or something. We’ve cleverly titled it “FanHouse in the Stands.”

Okay, I’ve seen some weird stuff at NFL games like tailgating snakes and lame gameday attire, but this picture that my friend Andy sent me is truly inexplicable.

Why would someone wear a David Carr PANTHERS jersey to a Houston Texans game against the Titans?

How did such a jersey even exist? Mister Mittens lost his starting job with the Panthers to Vinny Freaking Testaverde, a guy who wasn’t in camp with the team and didn’t know the names of the guys he was playing with when he took over the offense. Matt Moore, a rookie from Oregon State got on the field over Carr.

Did the Panther Mittens guy lose a bet? If he loves the man so much, why not rock a Carr Giants jersey? Does this guy want someone to *accidentally” spill a big plate of nachos on him? Because I can’t think of any jersey you could wear to a Texans game that would cause more abuse being flung your way.

Anyhow, I felt compelled to put together a photoshop essay to share my thoughts on this. Enjoy….Continue Reading

Predicting the Playoffs: Giants Need to Earn Their First-Round Bye

Every week the playoff scenarios get a little bit clearer, but what’s remarkable with two weeks to play is how a 10-6 record may mean very little this year. Usually 10-6 is enough to wrap up a playoff spot, and it is this year if you play in a weak division. But if you’re aiming for a wild card spot, 10-6 might leave you sitting at home.

But while scenarios are clearer this week than last week, it’s still pretty complicated, especially in the wild card races, where four 9-5 AFC teams and three 9-5 wild card contenders in the NFC ensure that there are plenty of tiebreakers to check out.

Probably the most surprising thing that jumped out when running through this week’s scenarios is how the Giants could go from a sure-fire No. 1 seed to playing next week to stay out of the first week of the postseason if they lose this week. And Minnesota has gone from a likely January vacation to a shot at a first-round bye.Continue Reading

Panthers 30, Broncos 10: Carolina Sets Up Showdown With Giants Next Week

by @ 12:00 am (Category : Uncategorized )

Dec 15th 2008 1:21AM by Sportz Assassin (author feed)
Filed under: Broncos, Panthers, AFC West, NFC SouthThe Carolina Panthers are peaking at the right time. As they are ascending the conference standings, the once-mighty Giants are falling a bit.

Those two will collide in New York next week with the winner earning home-field advantage in the NFC playoffs.

Carolina discarded the likely AFC West Champion Denver Broncos, 30-10. They have clinched at least a tie for the NFC South title and need just one win in their last two games to win it outright.

It was business as usual for Carolina. Steve Smith looked good with 165 receiving yards and a touchdown. DeAngelo Williams blasted a 56-yard touchdown run that put the game out of reach. Jake Delhomme actually looked like a functional quarterback with 253 yards passing and that TD to Smith.

LenDale White Accuses DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart of Hijacking His Nickname

by @ 12:00 am (Category : Uncategorized )

Dec 10th 2008 5:43PM by Will Brinson (author feed)
Filed under: Panthers, Titans, NFL Fans, NFL Media Watch, NFL Real TalkFat men are generally funny and that stereotype (just roll with it, okay?) appears to apply to LenDale White as well, if you hear what he was spouting off at a recent press conference.

See, White was asked what he thought about DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart being nicknamed “Smash and Dash” for their on-field running prowess. And, since White claims he already has proprietary rights on that name, he was none too pleased.
“If they want a nickname, I can nickname them: ‘Identity and Theft,’” said White, who’s successfully paired with the speedy rookie Chris Johnson this season. “…I was upset because I made that phrase up myself. I mean I made it up. I don’t know about NFL Network and all those other guys. I heard somebody say, ‘Batman and Robin,’ that’s like cute, that’s for them. If they want that name they can have it. The ‘Smash and Dash’ is something I made up.”

“We’ve got a copyright and everything for it, I’ll make sure I show the documents,” White said. “It’s well trademarked and it’s copy written. I don’t know if we’re going to take legal action or not.”
He also went on to say that he had been “swacced”, which apparently means “swagger-jacked”, and is definitely my new favorite term.

Now, while I would personally prefer the Stewart - Williams combo (I think they’re collectively much more talented than White and Johnson, although I do love the speedy ECU grab), the nickname “Smash and Dash” is vastly more applicable to the Tennessee tandem, in terms of running style. So, I’m willing to concede it to him. Besides, at least he didn’t call them weak a … er, nevermind.
