Anyone else getting a little tired of seeing the Giants on national TV?

Yes? No? It's ok, you ain't hatin', but think of it this way, when was the last time the Panthers were on nationally?

Probably when the Steelers destroyed them back in 2010. My, how much changes in a few seasons. It'll be interesting to see how good the Panthers really are, as opposed to the human highlight reel Cam Newton just running around making guys miss. How good of a thrower is he, really? How does their offensive scheme differ from teams with more stationary quarterbacks?

Can they run zone concepts?

All interesting questions, all things we can discuss and answer on the Week 3 kickoff party, and you can weigh in on how the Steelers will handle the Raiders in their own Week 3 brawl.

Think it was a coincidence the league sent notice to its 32 teams saying the abuse they've given to the officials over the first two games won't be tolerated this weekend? Couldn't have anything to do with the brawl that nearly broke out the last time the Steelers and Raiders played, could it?

Hmmm...discuss.
