Panthers Severely Lacking In Playoff Experience As They Prepare For Niners

The Carolina Panthers have not been to the playoffs since 2008. The upcoming game against the San Francisco 49ers will mark just the fifth time in franchise history that the Panthers have been to the playoffs, and that means the team is severely lacking in playoff experience.

49ers Slowly Recovering While Saints’ Biggest Weapon Limited

All signs point to the 49ers and Saints having all their playmakers available this Sunday, but New Orleans biggest weapon is not completely healthy. Despite several players on this week’s report, San Francisco is continues to avoid any serious injuries.

49ers First Half Co-MVPs: NaVorro Bowman, Eric Reid

San Francisco has hit the midway point in their season and with a 6-2 record, they have to be happy with the overall play of the team. They have gotten a positive contribution from just about every member of the roster, and the only real gripes have to be a questionable offensive game plan to start the season and a free agent pick up that has not lived up to expectations.

Injuries Will Play A Role When 49ers And Colts Play

The scoreboard is not the only place where the 49ers were beat up this past weekend. After a relatively injury free start to the season, there are several players who now fill up the injury report, but the news is not all bad. Their opponent has two very significant injuries, and this game will not be nearly as physical as the war that was the game against Seattle.

49ers Rely On Rookie And Veteran To Fill Voids

The 49ers had two big holes to fill this offseason, with the departure of Dashon Goldson and the release of David Akers. It would be impossible to have any sustained success with question marks at both positions, but after the Week 1 performances of Phil Dawson and Eric Reid, it appears that the 49ers have found a short-term replacement for Akers, and long-term answer for Goldson.
