This weeks game ball selection was a tough choice. Tough that is until BW Smith gave me a good tie breaker. Panthers QB Matt Moore had a fantastic bounce back game after getting his starting job back.He went 28 for 41 for 308 yards, 2 TDs,1 INT.
I was equally impressed with rookie WR David Gettis, who flashed exactly what the Panthers have needed all season as a #2 WR. He hauled in 8 passes for 125 yds and 2 TDs. So it seemed a tough call between the two. That is until BW's suggestion:
"When 2 performances appear fairly equal always reward the rookie! Always!"
He's the one that needs the confidence. He's the oen that played over his head in a sense. Or did he?
Congratulations to WR David Gettis, the Sprint Game Ball winner in the victory over the 49ers.
