<div id=”content_id”>The news has been bad for the Carolina Panthers following their Week 1 win over the Dallas Cowboys. Starting right tackle Daryl Williams re-injured his knee and is likely headed for injured reserve while he recovers from surgery. Tight end Greg Olsen re-fractured the foot that kept him out for the majority of last season. The Panthers are once again vying to produce back-to-back winning seasons for the first time in franchise history and they are being haunted by injuries. I’m not superstitious Youth Kawann Short Jersey , but I also don’t use ‘haunted’ lightly. There might be literal ghosts perpetuating this curse on the Carolinas.That’s nice.For now, we are going to talk about all of the positive elements to come out of a win. We did win, y’all. It was close, maybe closer than it had any need to be — but we won all the same. Here are the opinions of the Cat Scratch Reader staff on the best takeaways from the Panthers season opener.Bradley SmithJanelle MooreEvan LeekleyBrian BeversluisJonathan DeLongAshley BarnettBradley and Brian seem to think this game was the harbinger of a carefully coached offense. The Panthers committed 9 penalties on Sunday and had two unlucky/dumb fumbles, only one of which they recovered. The first game jitters are gone now and the offense has a lot of potential if they can play cleanly and carefully. Remember that the Panthers were the least penalized team in the NFL in 2017.Janelle and Jonathan walked away with the same impression that most of you did: the Panthers have a hell of a defense. Janelle also raised a good point that Thomas Davis hasn’t seen the field yet. Unlike the offense, Eric Washington’s unit is only getting stronger.Meanwhile http://www.panthersfootballauthentic.com/mario-addison-jersey-authentic , Evan and Ashley saw what so many of us hoped for this offseason. Norv Turner took advantage of his players. I can’t believe I have to say this, but McCaffrey is such an obviously better pitchman on the option than Jerricho Cotchery ever could have been. They never shared a locker room in Carolina, but can you honestly tell me Shula would have made the right choice if he had them both at the same time?How about it, Panthers’ fans, which takeaway is the most inspiring when looking forward this season? A couple of snaps before Panthers kicker Graham Gano nailed a 63-yard field goal to win Sunday’s game against the Giants, Carolina faced third down and short from the Giants’ 46 yard line. Officially Womens Donte Jackson Jersey , the Panthers converted.Unofficially, it’s debatable.The Panthers tried a handoff to running back Christian McCaffrey, who based on the TV copy arguably failed to make it to the line to gain. The officials ruled that McCaffrey had achieved a first down. As the clock ticked under 30 seconds, the offense lined up for a clock-killing spike play. By then, 12 seconds remained.In the rush to get the teams lined up and the ball snapped to kill the clock, the replay official didn’t buzz the referee for a review of the ruling that McCaffrey had reached the line to gain. Because the Giants had used all three of their time outs http://www.panthersfootballauthentic.com/jarius-wright-jersey-authentic , coach Pat Shurmur couldn’t pull the plug on the process while hoping for someone to think that maybe there should be a closer look.Per multiple sources, the league contends that the play was reviewed at the command center in New York, with a determination being made that no formal replay was needed.That’s also debatable, especially since the standard for triggering an automatic replay review continues to be the mirror image of the standard for overturning a ruling on the field. In other words, absent clear and obvious evidence that the ruling on the field was correct, a formal effort should commence to determine whether there is clear and obvious evidence that the ruling on the field was wrong.The ultimate outcome may not have changed. If the ruling on the field had been overturned via replay review http://www.panthersfootballauthentic.com/da_norris-searcy-jersey-authentic , the officials would have ordered a 10-second runoff from the 26 seconds that remained when the McCaffrey play ended. The Panthers then would have had 16 seconds to snap the ball for Graham Gano’s 63-yard field goal.That said, the circumstances definitely would have been different, with a running clock instead of a stopped clock. For a kick that long, any little difference could have altered the broader dynamics of the play.</div>
