Things we learned today:
- Wade Phillips is very, very important to this team's success.
- DeMeco Ryans is no longer an elite LB. (We kind of suspected this for a while, but the tackling today proved it.)
- T.J. Yates is not, in fact, a god.
- Jeremy Shockey is a worthless piece of trash who should be euthanized.
- Cam Newton is legit.
- FGs when trailing by 21 are not a great plan.
- Neil Rackers is infuriating.
- We will not be going 13-3 this year.
