Let us be honest.
This was an unexpected victory. Considering the entire Offense had less than 200 scrimmage yards. Obviously, you will take a win when it is given to you.
The Offense sucked and had no cohesion to it at all. The game plan sucked, sadly, the actual play by everyone matched the suckage of the game plan. This is not just a Cam Newton problem. It is the entire Offense that needs to work so much harder and smarter.
The real champions of this game were the Defense. Holding down the Arizona Cardinals is a feat that should be recognized. Only allowing 17 points with your own Offense barely able to get out of its own way is magnificent.
This team still has a shot at the playoffs but it is not realistic. Keep that in mind folks.
Take the win and be happy with it.
