Keep in mind that the Panthers have been decimated with injuries in the secondary and Offensive line all year. To the point where we signed guys off the street to play defensive back, and are trying to convert a recently re-signed d-lineman to play on our offensive line. Now on to Steph Curry the guy grew up in Charlotte, and played at Davidson in North Carolina. Its not surprising that he would be a Carolina fan. He has no loyalty to the 49ers, he plays for the Warriors. Its not like he's been living over there that long anyway, i'm not sure why the outrage on this.
The only legit injury excuse is Vernon Davis, the others had little to no impact. VD is Kaep's favorite target, though I don't even know if it would have made a difference today with how he was playing.
P.S. I'm new to Charlotte after living in NORCAL most of my life, it's a nice place.
