    Foster needs to step up. Seems as if since we lost out starting QB Foster has been playing with out the same effort or intensity in the first half of games. The fumbles are driving me crazy. After the fumble Texans were playing catch up all game. B. Tate dont get a pass either needs to hold on to ball and step up. We have a rookie qb which in general is a liability we damn sure dont need our "Star RB" to be a liability as well.

    Ya come on Foster, I can't believe you only a 170 total yards on offense!
    You must at least score 2 TDs and get 200 yards every single game!
    :listening

    I do get where you are going, the fumbles and no TDs need to stop. These last couple of games have not been his best but we need a QB so we don't have to rely just on Foster. The offense as a whole however is at fault.

    Something I noticed on one of the replays of a second half Foster run was the way he was flailing his arm around in traffic .... only the hand and forearm making contact with the ball ..... It reminded me a whole lot of Jacoby Jones during his couple seasons ..... an accident waiting to happen.

    Last few games he has had a gimped up vickers and a gimped up casey. We've been relying on guard pull and stretch plays. Teams key in on this, no fault to foster. Look at his yards after contact, he's at the top of the league.

    Look at his fumbles .... two on the first drives of games that directly led to points for the opposition in recent weeks (Jaq's and today). Thats putting your team behind the 8 ball from the get go.

    With a 3rd string QB they really have to limit mistakes.

    4 fumbles last 4 games. I would say something is different because he usually is sure handed. He is a great player and great contributor, but he needs to get back to himself holding onto the ball. 7 pts off the turnover.

    It's kind of narrow-minded to put this loss on one guy. The whole team played bad today. Third down went horribly on offense and defense. We only converted 2 of 9 chances while our D let the Panthers convert nine times in 14 tries. Steve Smith PWNED J. Jo today.

    Carolina found the end zone three times in its first five possessions. Meanwhile we stumbled and sputtered in the red zone 3 times: 1st & goal at the 16 = FG; 1 & goal at the 7 = FG, 1st & goal at the 10 = INT.

    We didn't do squat in the turnover dept. Weren't we on a streak of like 8-9 games with at least one takeaway? Didn't get a single one today.

    But you say all that is Foster's fault?
    ....please

    This was a collaborative fail.
