While this is getting harder to nominate players for another loss there are several worthy players of this weeks award. Please place your vote for the Game Ball of the Week winner sponsored by Samsung. I'm leaving Cam Newton off the list since if he should win this week with that stat line what's the point in doing a game ball at all? given his stat line was what it was I hope you understand. This week's candidates are:
RB Jonathan Stewart - Stewart became the
first second non-QB Panther to score on the ground this season (Williams being the other). He chipped in 7 carries for 48 yards and 3 receptions for 24 yards for 72 yards total and a TD.
TE Jeremy Shockey - Shock logged 4 catches for 60 yards including several key 3rd down conversions
DE Charles Johnson - Johnson added his 5th sack of the season along with 4 combined tackles
Okay so maybe we don't have a lot of candidates. I would add Steve Smith since he led the team in catches and receiving yards but honestly that stat line (5 for 66 yds) is so beneath him I can't put him on the list either. I guess it should be expected that given it was the worst loss of the season that we have a short list of game ball candidates.
