    The Carolina Panthers open their season with a win in a wild affair over the 49ers. The Panthers open the game with a 102 yard kick return by rookie CB J. Dyer to take the pressure of the offense and give the defense a lead to work with. San Francisco ended the 1st quarter scoring with a 51 yard FG. The offense struggled a bit during the half without HB D. Williams when he was knocked from the game for a couple quarters. Clausen managed to get the Panthers on the board with a 7 yard scramble for a TD to make it 14-3. Panthers rookie WR L. Waiters made an immediate impact with a 73 yard touchdown catch to put Carolina up 21-3. But the 49ers came right back moments later with bomb to TE V. Davis for 77 yards and the TD. Carolina manage to get a field goal in before the end of the quarter for a halftime lead of 24-10. San Francisco controls the 3rd quarter opening with a 99 yard kick off return by WR T. Ginn and a 1 yard run by N. Norris to tie the game up a 24 after three. The Panthers recovered a fumble after fumbling themselves inside the 10 and had to settle for a FG to go up 27-24. With about 5 minutes in the game, the 49ers was faced with a 4 & 10 from their own 29 and chose to go for it but failed to convert putting the Panthers in prime scoring position. They would capitalize on the short field ended with a D. Williams TD of 3 yards. The fight in the 49ers wasn't dead yet and they moved down the field and scored from 4 yards out on a pass to WR Crabtree. With two timeouts and good defense the 49ers managed to get the ball back with a minute in the game. San Francisco connected on a couple of medium passes before Panthers new FS Bethea picked the ball off to secure the win 34-31.

    The win was costly for the Panthers as they lost their #1 pick MLB T. Ridder to a broken forearm for 10 weeks.

    Good Game Troy! That was definitely a nerve wrecking game! Good Luck the rest of the season!

    We've all had to overcome adversity at one time or another. Some of us have been lucky enough to avoid injuries like the notorious "broken collarbone," while others have not been so lucky. Regardless, it's all part of the game. ;)
