RotoWorld (just after the game) - "All fantasy players should be started against a Panthers defense that has made Andy Dalton, Chad Hanne, Reggie Bush, and the Bengals backs look like stars. ... it doesn't say much for the Panthers defense that the Bengals moved the ball at will. ... Newton never looked comfortable in the pocket. ... Newton Certainly hasn't 'earned' the starting job, but the Panthers are loath to turn the offense over to Jimmy Clausen. ... CB Chris Camble - dislocated thumb, as A. J. Green abused Chris Gamble in the 1st half".
ProfootballTalk.com (just after the game) - "A. J. Green destroyed Panthers CB Chris Gamble repeatedly, catching 2 passes for 45 yards, and a score (40 yards). He had Gamble beat 2 other times deep, but Dalton couldn't hit him. ... Their defense was steamrolled by the Bengals".
Pat Yasinskas (at RotoWorld today) - CB Chris Gamble could be "Totally washed up".
RoroWorld (this afternoon) - From an unnamed NFL scout, "If it wasn't Cam Newton, you'd say this guy has no business being on the field".
A Bengals fan (during the game, at nfl.com) - Your QB sucks, your management sucks for drafting him #1 over all when you could have gotten A. J. Green, then Cam in the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th. He's not the future and never will be".
I hate to bring the bad news, but I hope it lights a fire under the team.
