Indication Derek Anderson will Start for Carolina?

Not too often do you read articles about pre-game production meetings between quarterbacks and the network televising their football games. There are two reasons for this.  1. Who really cares? 2.

Now that we’ve all calmed down from the Super Bowl and are able to think clearly now I’d like to bring something up that grinded my gears leading up to the game.
