Things keep getting worse for the Carolina Panthers, falling to 1-4, missing a concussed Cam Newton, and losing to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers of all teams, conceding a field goal from the awful (up to now) Roberto Aguayo. That kind of collapse from a Super Bowl team is more than meme worthy.
The memes focus on a number of things: The Panthers ‘keep pounding’ slogan, which turns into keep pouting when they’re losing; Cam Newton dabs being turned into jokes, even if he wasn’t even playing; and mostly, the fans, who a lot of them had nothing to do with the Panthers before last season, and now might be searching for a new team. Perhaps go back to the Seattle Seahawks?
It’s not that the Bucs have too many things to be happy about. They scored only 14 points against a bad Panthers defense, and couldn’t finish a game against backup quarterback Derek Anderson earlier.
However, second-round (!!!) pick, kicker Roberto Aguayo, had himself a happy ending to the weekend: First, Florida State beat Miami. And now, after being turned into a laughing stock for his inaccuracy as a kicker, he nailed a 38-yard field goal as time expired to win the game.
