Raiders @ the Panthers Game thread 


http://www.nfl.com/gamecenter/2012122301/2012/REG1 6/raiders@panthers#tab=preview&menu=highlights
Why this game is intriguing: Thanks in part to their salary-cap disaster, the Oakland Raiders came into 2012 expecting a rebuilding year. They got it. With Darren McFadden returning to form in last week's victory, maybe they can find some more optimism. On the Carolina Panthers' side of things, Ron Rivera's seat is quite warm. Remember, this season began with major playoff aspirations. Could a late-season hot streak save Rivera's job? The Panthers enter this contest with two straight wins. Would a couple more victories prove that Rivera can thrive with a talent like Cam Newton

Injury Report :

For the first time since Week 12, Panthers running back  Jonathan Stewart  is not listed as doubtful or out on the injury report.

Stewart, who has been battling an ankle injury, is questionable for Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders after practicing in a limited fashion on Friday.

"We'll see how he is on Sunday," head coach Ron Rivera said.

With only two games remaining in the season and running backs  DeAngelo Williams  and  Mike Tolbert  performing well, the Panthers want to be careful about not rushing Stewart back.

"You have to be very smart about that," Rivera said. "All those things will go into consideration."

Center  Geoff Hangartner  (foot) is doubtful and likely to miss his second straight game.

Guard  Garry Williams  (illness) is questionable after coming down with what inflicted fellow linemen  Byron Bell  and Thomas Austin , who both practiced fully Friday and are probable.

"Apparently we didn't clean the (offensive line) room fast enough," Rivera joked.

Wide receiver  Brandon LaFell  (toe) and defensive tackle  Dwan Edwards  (wrist) practiced for the first time this week and are probable.

Defensive end  Charles Johnson  was given the day off.

hopefully the Panthers will win the coin toss. After losing 13 in a row and then winning, I think it puts the team in an emotional advantage to come out hard and fast on the get go

I just want to see another complete game. It's a bad team having to travel across country and play in our home game finale.

From what I understand their OL sucks, so we should see another big day from our DL.

Panthers have added linebacker James Anderson to the injury report as probable. Anderson has missed the past two games with a back injury.

Meh, just IR him already. Let's see what we have in Phillips, it's not like we're playing for anything.

Feels kinda odd to have a better record than our opponent... When's the last time we played someone that had a worse record than us at the time we were playing them?

And the more I think about it the more ridiculous it gets after looking at our roster.   ohlord

I am going to stick my head out here and ask: Is there anyone else who feels Kuechly is just slightly overrated?

eek ...or maybe you've been talking too much to a Falcon fan! A rookie takes over the calls for our D and is in almost every tackle and is playing PB level D.

I've tried to watch him very closely.  He sometimes misses easy tackles and over pursues on plays often/makes bad reads.  I think he's going to be great, but he ain't the Second Coming already.
