Cam Newton is headed to IR and other stuff

The Carolina Panthers decided to IR Cam Newton hours before we recorded this episode, so that takes up a lot of our time. We do get to talk about the Titans game a little bit, but not too much because the Titans are boring. We also preview Sunday's big game against the Packers. There's also a lot of Chargers talk for some reason. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit


The Panthers turned into a pumpkin for Halloween

Woo boy where do we begin? The Panthers had two weeks to rest up and prepare for the 49ers and still managed to get absolutely wallopped. Kyle Allen has now thrown an interception (3) and lost a game (1); his credentials are crumbling before our eyes. There were a lot of problems. And then the Panthers still have to play a game next week against the most boring team in the NFL. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
