From today’s game at Charlotte’s Bank of America Stadium….
It didnâ€™t take long for the crowd, sitting in 90-degree heat, to grow restless with qurterback Matt Moore, who replaced longtime starter Jake Delhomme. Moore failed to see an open Steve Smith down the right sideline, then threw a third-and-11 screen pass into a sea of bodies on the ground, producing boos before the first quarter was over.
Later on Jimmy Clausen, the former Notre Dame star, trotted on the field with 10:03 left in the game, to loud cheers from the crowd.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. â€” Josh Freeman and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers continued to show remarkable growth. The Carolina Panthers remained in disarray, and may be ready to turn permanently to their own young quarterback.
Freeman returned to the site of the worst game of his brief pro career and threw for 178 yards and two touchdown passes in Tampa Bayâ€™s 20-7 win over Carolina on Sunday to give the Buccaneers their first 2-0 start in five years.
A year after starting 0-7 and just over nine months removed from Freemanâ€™s five-interception nightmare against Carolina, the second-year quarterback avoided any big mistakes or turnovers. The miscues were made by the bumbling Panthers (0-2), who couldnâ€™t move the ball as Matt Moore had two more turnovers and was benched for rookie Jimmy Clausen in the fourth quarter.
Mick Mixon, Eugene Robinson and Jim Szoke had the call of the game on the radio on 1110 WBT and at 101.1FM WZTK. Call in at around 5pm during the Wrap Up show to help explain what the team should do next week to get the win.
