Carolina Panthers Broadcast Bingo
Posted August 21
The Carolina Panthers will begin their 2014 NFL campaign on Sept. 7 at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on FOX.
A couple weeks later, Cam Newton and his crew take NBC Sunday Night Football's center stage against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sept. 21. The Panthers also have two more spotlight contests later in the season, hosting New Orleans on NFL Network and a visit to Philadelphia for ESPN's Monday Night Football.
The national broadcast troupes assigned to Carolina typically have their talking points in advance in order to set the table in the opening moments of a game. Viewers will discover Newton has "matured."
They'll find out the Panthers had to replace Steve Smith, Jerry Rice and Randy Moss in the off-season (actually Ted Ginn and Brandon LaFell). We'll certainly hear the legend of Riverboat Ron and other scorching hot takes on Carolina's season in progress.
Rather than rolling our eyes at the same ol' narratives, let's have some fun. Let's play "Carolina Panthers National Broadcast Bingo."
