Yeah, baby!

Oh, now this was sweet! And simply confirmed my genius in choosing the Panthers as my new favorite team... They beat Miami last night, 19-10, with an oustanding performance by my favorite running back, former Tiger DeAngelo Williams.

Carolina Panthers: "
[T]he Panthers special teams scored all 19 points, including a 98-yard kickoff return for a touchdown by rookie DeAngelo Williams... [T]he Dolphins tied the game... with a 23-yard Olindo Mare field goal. That's when they got a case of the Memphis blues.

Williams, the rookie from Memphis, hauled in Mare's kickoff at the two-yard line, then burst through a seam in the coverage and ran 98 yards for a touchdown. 'As we've said all along, he's got good bursts, good acceleration, and excellent vision,' said Fox of Williams. 'He's got a second gear, and I think you saw a little bit of that when he popped through on that play... DeAngelo did a nice job of seeing that seam and hitting it.'"
