Brees passes Saints to comeback win in Carolina
Posted by Michael David Smith on October 9, 2011, 4:38 PM EDT
ReutersThe Panthers gave the Saints all they could handle today in Carolina, but in the end Drew Brees came up big — and Cam Newton came up just short — as New Orleans won 30-27.

Brees had another big day, completing 32 of 45 passes for 359 yards and two touchdowns, the second of which went to Pierre Thomas with less than a minute remaining, giving the Saints a lead after they had trailed for most of the fourth quarter.

That gave Newton one last chance to lead the Panthers back, and Newton did march the Panthers into Saints territory in the final seconds. But his last pass fell short, and the Panthers walked off the field having lost again, falling to 1-4 on the season.

The Panthers can take solace in knowing that they’re playing competitive football: All four of their losses are by a touchdown or less. For Carolina, that’s progress.

As for the Saints, they got big days from Jimmy Graham (129 receiving yards) and Darren Sproles (91 yards from scrimmage), and at 4-1 they’re looking like one of the best teams in football.

What should not be overlooked was the horrible refereeing in this game. Steve Smith dragging Jenkins around by his facemask was inexcusable and should’ve been a penalty and probably an ejection. Ingram taunted a Panthers player and was rightfully penalized, however the Panthers player threw a forearm shiver to his head/face area and was not. A really awful roughing the passer was called on a perfectly clean hit on Newton on 3rd down that extended a drive and let the Panthers score a go-ahead touchdown.

Officiating was historically bad in this game. The NFL is the biggest most important sports league in the world and I don’t see how they can continue to let this crap happen week after week.

The two roughing the passer flags I think both resulted in a TD for Carolina. Ridiculous! Then on 4th and 10 with the game nearly over, the refs call a pass interference (or it may have been an llegal contact) on Roman Harper and it gives them a fresh set of downs. Normally I hate blaming the refs, but I can't help but think they wanted the panthers to win.

This is a huge problem this year...

POOR OFFICIATING. It just seems it gets worse and worse every year.

The good thing is that it just so happens to even out for both sides.

Worst officiating i've seen in years.... That no call, on the helmet to helmet, on Drew was just freaking ridiculous... Cam Newton is being groomed to be the face of the NFL... You can see it in everything they do about the Panthers... I just watched the game highlights on NBC, and they showed nothing but Panthers replays, except for our game winning touchdown.... Pathetic...

The reason it gets worse is because they keep trying to take the violence out of a violent game. That first roughing penalty is exhibit "A". The second one, the helmet to helmet...ticky tack, okay, whatever. But that first one...that was a joke.

Actually just to clarify the penalty of rushing the passer on Cam was actually the right freakin call I hate to say it.

I was damn sure the ball was in his hand when they hit him.

The problem on the play is that we hit him high by one player and another player cam in low. That is a roughing the passer penalty.

The same thing was called on us against the Vikes in the NFC championship game if I recall. They didn't do a good job explaining the call vs the Panters.
