Earlier this week WR Santonio Holmes made the unfortunate comment that the Panthers secondary was their Achilles’ heel. The Panthers took it personally.
“With what Santonio said earlier in the week, we had to come out and shut him up. I think we did a good job of that,” Mikell said, via the team’s website. “Our thing all year has been that people point the finger at the secondary, and that’s fine. We drive the bus from the back. We’ve had some good games and we’ve had some bad games. Tonight we had a good one and just shut them down.”-ProFootballTalk.com
Santonio Holmes ended the game with 1 more catch and 1 less TD than Panthers CB Captain Munnerlyn.
