Panthers quarterback Cam Newton's success this season has not been limited to his acting ability on gimmick plays. Newton set the NFL record for passing yards by a rookie, a record previously held by Peyton Manning, and did so with seven quarters to spare in the 2011 season.

Ike Taylor may be receiving the lion's share of the blame for Sunday's postseason loss, but he was just part of the problem in a loss that really was a total team effort. Numerous players and coaches had a hand in what turned out to be an overtime defeat to an inferior opponent.

Thomas abused Ike Taylor all afternoon, racking up 204 yards on four catches. Isaac Redman was outstanding in a losing effort with 121 yards in his postseason debut.

Feature ThreePure Steel
Time moves faster in the NFL. Players seem to age more rapidly and rosters turn over more quickly than in any other sport. Nowhere else is this more evident than the Steelers defense, where nine of 2011’s opening day starters are no longer with the team.
