With the Panthers being stacked in the running game, do you think
I think they are.
From a statistical perspective, Williams and Stewart enjoyed unparalleled success in 2009, becoming the only teammates in NFL history to each rush for 1,100 yards in the same season. Obviously, they won't repeat that feat this season, but their impact on the bottom line can be even greater.
Williams and Stewart, along with fullback
For all the yards Williams and Stewart produced in 2009, that team was 4-5 at this juncture and finished 8-8. Right now, they are pivotal pieces for a team that has won five consecutive games to stand 6-3.
Ron Rivera gets no respect. His forte is defense, and he's certainly done a fantastic job winning five in a row. The so-called experts have not mentioned a darn thing about his successes, only talking about him early in the season when his job was in jeopardy. Come on man! – R.J. in Austin, Texas
Praise for the job that Rivera has done is trickling in, and obviously the talk about his job status has subsided. The Panthers defense ranks second in the NFL in points and yards allowed, and only the unbeaten Kansas City Chiefs have a longer current winning streak than Carolina. Rivera does deserve more credit, but he's not losing sleep over it. Instead, he's spending every waking hour trying to keep his team relevant, and continued winning will eventually shed a broader light on the good work he's doing.
Is there a place to watch the entire Panthers-49ers game that I missed? – Ken in Charlotte
Your best bet is to subscribe to NFL Game Rewind. Depending on the package you pick, you can watch every NFL game already played this season or perhaps watch Williams and Stewart along their path to 1,100-plus yards back in 2009. Any of the packages would include the Panthers-49ers game, an instant Carolina classic to be sure.
It's not an indictment on Hixon as much as it's an indication of how well
Norman, a second-year cornerback who led the NFL with four interceptions in the preseason, has been inactive for four of the last five games. He struggled some early in the regular season and suffered a thigh injury, and that opened the door for the likes of veteran
"It's about competition," Rivera said. "That's what we're trying to foster here."
Norman certainly could get another chance. He has to be ready for it.
Can I be your quarterback in 2028, please? Age 8. – Benjamin in San Antonio
