The Carolina Panthers have been dreadful this season and now it just got worse for the 1-7 Panthers as the team has now lost QB Matt Moore and LB Dan Conner for the season. The Carolina Panthers announced that they have placed Matt Moore and Dan Conner on injured reserve for the rest of the season.

The Carolina Panthers have been ripped by injuries this season, and the team currently is the lowest scoring squad in the NFL. Carolina once featured one of the strongest running games in the NFL with the duo of DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart, however neither has posted a 100 yard game this season. Injuries to the offensive line, as well as to Williams the past two weeks has hindered the panthers running game.

Of course one thing that cannot be understated is the lack of production at the quarterback position. Three quarterbacks have played the position this season for the Panthers, Matt Moore, rookies Jimmy Clausen and Tony Pike saw some action in yesterday’s 34-3 drubbing by the New Orleans Saints.

With next years NFL draft considered to be stacked with quarterback talent, rookie Jimmy Clausen now has to give the Panthers a reason not to use what will be a high first round pick on a quarterback. Clausen has not looked sharp in limited action this season, completing less than 50% of his passes, along with throwing four interceptions and has a current passer rating of 48.0.

Watch Cam Newton Put His Own Interests Above The Team

Millions of things have been said about Cam Newton, but this one instance in particular fires me up as a Carolina Panthers fan. With the score 16-10 Broncos, Von Miller knocks the ball out of Newton's hands which leads to a mad scramble. Newton has the opportunity to jump on the ball in the pile, but he decides to back away to protect himself from injury. In a one-possession game in the Super Bowl, Newton should've sacrificed every limb he has to get that ball back for his team, and it's extremely unnerving to me as a fan that he didn't jump in there.

Watch Angry Grandpa Go Insane After Panthers' Loss

The Carolina Panthers lost to the Denver Broncos 24-10 in Super Bowl 50 which disappointed Panthers fans everywhere. I'm going to go out on a limb and say not many fans were as angered by the loss as this elderly man. While a lot of us have the self-control to avoid letting our anger take us this far, this grandpa didn't care and took his frustrations out on the television.
