    Doesn’t look to me like NO will win this pass reception challenge.

    … And they didn’t.

    Aints trying for the miracle in the last minute in Seattle….

    SeaHawks looked workmanlike today…. should have plenty of gas left in the tank for next weekend, except for Percy Harvin.

    C-Hawks lookin good. Hope Panthers win somehow tomorrow and can give them a good game next week in Seattle. But it is looking like it could be an all NFC West final. Remember when that division was trash? Not any more.

    Hope Luck can get it done tonight but not very confident.

    Notre Dame lost at Georgia Tech today, so it is probably time to temper our win in South Bend a little. Truth is, outside of Cuse, Pitt and likely UVA, the ACC is a hot jumbled mess. I would expect Duke to get it together but after that it is a jumbled mess. This is both good and bad. Good in the sense that if we can find some consistency we can quickly climb the standings. Bad in that really good opportunities for solid wins are growing scarce. No longer would a win over an unranked UNC turn any heads, except ours of course. Really disappointing conference thus far.

    Going to Bank of America stadium now. Will have the crowd spell out dogbreath in honor of a huge fan that can’t be there in person. Go black cats!!

    I’m excited to see my hometown (hopefully) have a nice moment in the sun. What a slobberknocker Panthers/FRWs would be in Seattle next week.

    But even more excited to see PeyPey take one more step towards his coronation as best QB of all time (he needs the second ring, and I need the Broncos to get their third, and to see Foxy get his well-earned first).

    The refs are turning football into a woman’s sport.

    Panthers are taking it to the 9ers. This, folks, is the most physical team in the league.

    Heck of a game thus far. Love the physicality on both sides. And Cam showing he is tougher than nails.

    Today’s game is certainly not for the faint of heart. But I don’t think that the Panther’s goal line play calls were very imaginative.

    Peyton is a great QB. But I don’t think that even in BJD’s rosy scenario, there is anything there that would prove that he is better than Brady…never mind best of all time.

    Agree VaWolf. On both counts.

    I am a huge Peyton fan, but if the Broncs get by the Chargers today my best guess is Brady and the Pats gets Peyton again next week. Hope he can prove me wrong.

    49ers living right, ahead at the half after Panthers basically ruled the first half

    PR and the bolo…too funny.

    You guys are overlooking the fact that SD is the team of destiny.

    Or, maybe it’s density.

    I like where the Panthers are. Got to get points, though. There is going to be a turnover that decides this game as both teams are so equal.

    #36718

    Well, the 49ers have certainly gotten the breaks from the officials – two calls (or no call on one) that led directly to 10 points. From Pam Oliver’s sideline report it sounds like the 49ers are going to push it even more this half and see what they can get away with.

    Bad call on the Mitchell unnecessary roughness, Boldin not called for any of his shenanigans (including an identical headbut that was called on the Panthers), and the clear 12 men in the huddle on the TD.

    Officials not often a concern in NFL games.

    Rut roh indeed … And if the Panthers’ D players didn’t want to impale Kaepernik before, they definitely do now after that cheese TD celebration

    8 minute possession with no points out of it … brutal

    Have to have a stop soon, and then something the Panthers haven’t done much of – hurry up offense

    This one is over I am afraid.

    The day is starting the way last night left off. Ugh.

    I fear what this bad juju means for PeyPey.

    Yup, Niners running downhill right now.

    Short of a turnover here, things look bleak.

    At the moment, Cam doesn’t have the facial expression one would hope for.

    He looks beaten. Bad sign.

    This is a 49er team that can easily win it all. I don’t see a weakness. Seattle will be a tough out but San Fran to me is a better team overall.
