The Panthers have been all over the Giants today. The Panthers were a sleeper team heading into this season and it seems as though they are finally piecing things together. Offensively, they have weapons in DeAngelo Williams, Steve Smith, Greg Olsen, and Brandon LaFell surrounding star QB Cam Newton. Ted Ginn, now with his third team, is finding his niche in slot. Ginn turned heads with a punt return TD in the preseason and has now scored in back-to-back games. The two receiving touchdowns already tie Ginn’s career high.
Ginn’s speed is obviously the reason he was drafted 7th overall. Now, 8 years later, Ginn may finally be piecing together some route running skill from the slot, providing the Panthers with another weapon. Ginn will be searching for his first 800 yard season as the year continues.
