All I want to say is THIS IS COOL!
In my 18 years at WBTV, I have been blessed to cover some great players, attend some great games, and be at some outstanding events, but covering a Panthers game on Thanksgiving in Dallas is in the top 5... PERIOD! Might be 2nd to being at the Super Bowl...
I look in the eyes of some Panthers fans and they are in awwwwwwwwwwwwwww of the size of AT&T Stadium. The seating capacity is listed at 80,000 but with all the others side rooms to watch the game in this mega building, they are estimating 100,000 in the building for today's game. And the video board is something to behold.
But enough of the shock and amazement... It is time for football. Just got off the field for pre game warm ups and this Panthers team looks relaxed and ready to go in this one. They looks sharp in their color rush Panther Blue uniforms. Hey, if you look good, you are going to play good.
I certainly can't wait for kickoff.
My final analysis in this one is if the Panthers win 2 of these 3 battles, I think they win the game.
Dez Bryant vs Josh Norman
Greg Hardy vs Michael Oher
Panthers running attack vs Cowboys rush defense (150 yards by the Panthers is what I consider a win)
My prediction on the game?
Carolina Panthers 33
Dallas Cowboys 24
Let's kick this thing off folks!
