Panthers vs. Seahawks: Impressions from Carolina's Week 1 Loss

The stage was set nicely for the Carolina Panthers to come out and "steal" one from a Super Bowl favorite, the Seattle Seahawks. With much of Seattle's defense nicked up, the pieces looked to be falling into place for a Carolina victory—this was not to be the case.

Issues such as undisciplined penalties, an offense that could not put up points and an exhausted defense in the fourth quarter led to yet another season-opening loss for the Panthers. It was another game that "woulda, shoulda, coulda" been a win for the Ron Rivera regime. 

Even in the loss, Panthers fans can find a few beacons of hope and, as always with losing, a few pariahs to lay the blame upon. 

Here are some of examples of both from Carolina's 12-7 Week 1 loss.
