Found December 30, 2011 on Chicks in the Huddle:
On Sunday at midnight, many of us will ring in the New Year singing “Auld Lang Syne.” But on Sunday at noon in the Superdome, I can assure you old acquaintances most certainly won’t be forgotten. The Saints will face a Carolina team that they’ve not only come to know very well, but loathe very much. And with the Panthers rookie quarterback Cam Newton performing like something out of a Tecmo Bowl game, they could very well have their hands full. But you know what, I still think they’re gonna kick some ass. Know why? Because the Saints are on a mission. They’ve been subjected to trash talk and scrutiny all week long over the decision to let their star player make history, as opposed to, I don’t know, letting Matt Ryan suckle on the teet of Gregg Williams to ease the pain of getting spanked in prime time. My friends at Moosedenied did a fabulous job of summing up how most of us Saints fans feel about the scrutiny, while laying out what I would consider a fairly appropriate res...

Ouch That Hurt: Swiping Cam Newton’s Talented Butt Cheeks Across the Fiery Pits of Reality

I love Cam Newton. Now that that’s out of the way it’s time for me to swipe those cute little buns across the fiery pits of racial reality.

Newton has impressed in such a way in his rookie season as to be the hands-down favorite for “Rookie of the Year” honors. Carolina leads the head-to-head series against...

Newton gets snubbed

Look for Panthers rookie Cam Newton to be a little extra motivated this week against the Saints after missing out on the Pro Bowl. Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees and Eli Manning made the NFC team ahead of Newton. Newton has combined for 34 touchdowns, while Manning has 27.

Saints Nation: Previewing the Carolina Panthers

This is the final regular season game as the Carolina Panthers come to town. It should be a tightly contested game as the first time these two clubs faced each other it was won on the last drive the Saints had the ball. I expect this game to go two ways: either the Saints will play to win or they will rest their starters and the game will be in question but it all depends on...
