Carolina Panthers — Super Bowl ChampsJuly 25th, 2012

Joe appreciates the attitude, but that’s as far as it goes. For Joe, a full-page ad apologizing to Clifton Smith for destroying his career — and nearly his life — would be more appropriate.
Joe sincerely hopes the Bucs learn how to stop the run and tackle in the next six weeks. A loss to the Panthers after this kind of bluster would be too much to bear.
