Here’s an open thread from anyone who wants to comment during the game. Also, if you are unable to watch the game I’ll be giving commentary on the key plays as best I can. I’m on kid duty today so in between referring brawls between my boys and keeping them from destroying the house I’ll report on brawls on the field and watching the Panthers destroy the Bucs!
My game day musings:
• Is this the week Dwayne Jarrett comes off the inactive list? I wouldn’t be surprised that when that happens the Panthers trade or cut Keary Colbert outright right then.
• How much will Stanley McClover play today? I’ve talked him up so much I hope he at least makes one play to talk about.
• Will David Carr play like we know he is capable of playing? I actually find myself not too worried about this.
•Will the Panthers finally generate a pass rush? We need to be a little more creative in our blitzes.
• Will DeAngelo Williams finally break a big play? He’s been close a couple times. He’s due.
• Will Steve Smith bounce back? Of course he will. How did that thought ever even enter my mind?
• Finally, will the Panthers home field actually provide an advantage? I know the Cat Man has been trying to come up with some type of cheer to fire up the home crowd. Let’s keep an eye out for that.

I must concur that it's a beautiful day as well here in Charleston! Maybe a couple degrees warmer, slightly windy.
