I had only read about Reddick calling it a dirty play. I was skeptical, given…it’s FOOTBALL, and given its Mac Jones. Having seen it now, I can’t believe anyone is making anything of this. He was trying to keep him from getting the ball or getting away. WHO CARES? Jesus.

This happens EVERY time there is a loose ball on a fumble. Daniel Jones was mauled in the Giants game on a similar play. Jones didnt twist his ankle, he literally just held his leg and Burns turned himself into a pretzel trying to get away.

So I know Darnold was hurt and not his best this game, but the Panthers really screwed up by drafting a CB this year right?

They could have had Mac or Fields and instead are going to try to make it work with Darnold and hope that Jaycee Horn becomes the best CB in football?

Pretty sure from reporting at the time that Wilson was their guy and when it became clear he'd be a Jet, they just didn't rate Mac or Fields. Which doesn't absolve them since Wilson doesn't look good, but Fields has hardly shone to date either.

I think they even screwed up by not just keeping Teddy if they didn't intend to draft a QB. Much better player and would have saved them a second round pick.
