Panthers RB Stewart Cracks 100-Yard Mark Against Vikings

Posted by Mike Wobschall on December 21, 2009 – 8:45 am

We’ve already noted the reasons why the Vikings 26-7 loss on Sunday night was so disappointing.

But there are more reasons.

And one of them is that in Carolina’s winning effort, RB Jonathan Stewart did something that no other RB has been able to do against the Vikings over the previous 36 weeks – he rushed for 100 yards.

Stewart was the impetus behind Carolina’s offensive attack and 26-point output against the Vikings on Sunday night. He carried the ball 25 times and rushed for 109 yards and 1 TD while also hauling in 2 receptions for 14 yards and 1 TD.

The 2nd-year pro did most of his damage after Panthers starting RB DeAngelo Williams left the game with an ankle injury. One might have thought that without Williams in the game, the Vikings would’ve been in great shape to extend their impressive streak and pull out an important late-season road win.

But that clearly wasn’t the case.

Stewart’s 100-yard rushing performance against the Vikings is the first such performance the Vikings have allowed since Ryan Grant ran for 102 yards on 11/11/07.

    what is with the Vikings. They can’t stop the run. WHo would have thought that would happen. And can we please give AP the it is ridiculous that he has to claw and scratch to get 20 carries. And Bryant mckinnie how tough is it to block Juliuos Peppers. Good Night Vikings. They’ll be sitting a home during the Divisional Playoffs. GO FIGURE

    The Vilkings do not look like a Superbowl caliber team. They have the talent but the coaching staff is not doing the job. They failed in every aspect of the game.

    Have you noticed the lack of playmaking ability of the 2 safeties on the Vikes? While I”m sure a nice guy, Tyrell Johnson, has yet to make a play all season: his angles to tackles are horrible and he gets dissed when trying to make a tackle. The Vikes have been playing with 10 1/2 players on defense all year (M. Williams is the other 1/2, but another good guy). As for the Offense, it’s starts at the line of scrimmage: when is the last time you saw a hole for Peterson to run through? The lanes other teams open up for their backs on the Vikes is enough to get a truck through, while Peterson suffers to get a crack (and the pass blocking is as lame as the unimaginative play calling). We’ve called one reverse all year (fumble to Harvin but it was wide open for 20 + yards). Childress has his work cut out for him this week, so let’s see if he can earn that bonus…

    The vikings are truly the Chicago Cubs of football! I have watched them do the same thing over and over again for more than 40 years….FAIL! But they do make more than their share of highlight films. Always trying to catch someone from behind. Kind of like the Keystone cops, falling all over each other.

    The Vikings are still 11-3, in the playoffs, and can do well if they get it together as a team, both coaches and players. The defense did not do well, A.P. had a bad game, and the offensive line did not allow #4 enough time to make plays. Too many explosive plays by the Panthers. The Vikings have to remember that their 11-3 record is not a free ticket to the Super Bowl. Practice hard, play hard, and success will be there for them.

    As a Carolina Panthers fan living in Minnesota the game was really a delight to watch. I was told numerous times that the Vikes would win by at least two scores. Well, that didn’t happen. One question for all the Vikings fans. How many times does Favre have to get sacked/hit by Peppers before you double team him? And what is it I have been hearing about Moss potentially coming back to the Vikes??? Good or bad news?

    BAD NEWS!!! He takes too many plays off and a good corner can take him out of the game. We had him, Chris Carter, Jake Reed and Robert Smith and still lost to Atlanta at home. I think the vikings stadium was built on an old Indian burial ground considering all their misfortune.

    I thought the Atlanta game was lost because Anderson was paid off? Or was that story largely covered up in Minnesota?

    That could be, considering it was his only miss all year. Minnesota used to play the prevent defense which more often than not prevented them from winning the game. Now they play cover no one and that seems to work just as well.
    The players should be well rested by the time they have to play in the Pro Bowl.
