Panthers 38 Giants 0: Game MVP Fan Poll

Grant Halverson

These polls are always much more fun when the Panthers win and boy did they win big yesterday. It's going to be hard to pick an MVP when you see this line up of performances to choose from.

We have game MVP candidates on both sides of the ball and special teams. Let's start with the defense since I think we all agree they got it going early and often.

DE Greg Hardy - Just a Monster day with 3 sacks, 3 tackles for loss, 3 QB hurries and 6 combined tackles

LB Thomas Davis - 1 sack, 2 tackles for loss, 1 QB hurry and 5 combined tackles

DE Charles Johnson - 1 sack, 1 tackle for loss, 3 QB hurries, 4 combined tackles

SS Robert Lester - 1 INT, 1 pass defended, 1 fumble recovery and 5 combined tackles

CB Melvin White - 1 INT, 1 pass defended, 1 forced fumble and 2 combined tackles coming off the bench

On offense we of course start with the ring leader:

QB Cam Newton - 15 for 27 with 233 yards, 3 TD passes, 1 rushing TD, 45 yards rushing and 1 INT

WR Brandon LaFell - 3 receptions for 53 yards and 2 TDs

WR Ted Ginn - 3 receptions for 73 yards and 1 TD

RB DeAngelo Williams - 23 rushes for 120 yards (5.2 ypc)

As I mentioned special teams had a decent day as well:

P Brad Nortman averaged 48.5 yards on 2 punts

K Graham Gano went 5 for 5 on PATs and nailed a 53 yard FG with plenty of distance to spare.

So there are your game MVP candidates.
