I went to Rifftrax Live last night so didn't watch the game, listened to the beginning and end of it while driving.   Pre-season really isn't worth watching, the regular starters were mostly out by the time I got to the theater.

The Panthers looked like crap the 1st part of the game with 2 turnovers then came back to tie it up 27 all in the 4th only to cough it up at the 2 minute warning :grr:
3 turnovers total on our part :angry:

The Patriots seem to be in a bit of disarray.. :o

Patriots are releasing DE Kony Ealy. The team has been disappointed in his development as he transitioned into a new defensive system.
New England acquired Ealy this offseason in a trade with Carolina that sent the Panthers the Patriots 2nd-round pick in exchange for Ealy and a 3rd-round pick.

And Julian Edelman is done for the season with a torn ACL.

It'll be interesting to see how beatable the Patriots are this season..

Panthers surprisingly release Joe Webb
Veteran quarterback Joe Webb is now a free agent.

Those hoping the Carolina Panthers were going to elevate Joe Webb to backup quarterback and demote Derek Anderson will be vastly disappointed in what the team did Saturday morning.

Carolina has elected to keep only two quarterbacks, releasing Webb and fourth-string quarterback Garrett Gilbert, per Bill Voth of the team's official site.

Webb's departure comes as a surprise, especially considering his value to the team both on special teams and at quarterback, but clearly the Panthers believe keeping a third quarterback isn't as important as holding onto another player at another position.

Gilbert could make a return to the Panthers' practice squad if he clears waivers.

Carolina will head into the season with only Cam Newton and Derek Anderson as quarterbacks on the 53-man roster. Newton is coming off shoulder surgery to repair a partially-torn rotator cuff, but is expected to be ready for the team's season opener at San Francisco on Sept. 10.

Anderson struggled through the preseason, but his track record won him the backup quarterback job.

Joe Webb signs with Buffalo Bills

Joe Webb has found his new NFL home.

The former Panthers and Vikings quarterback has signed with the Buffalo Bills, the team has announced.

Webb was released by the Panthers on Saturday during the team's final roster cut-down.

Buffalo waived safety Colt Anderson to make room for Webb on the 53-man roster. The Bills now have Tyrod Taylor, Nathan Peterman, TJ Yates and Webb all on their roster.

Webb will likely play special teams along with his QB duty. He's reunited with former Panthers assistant Sean McDermott, who's now the head coach with the Bills, and general manager Brandon Beane.
