Coach Ron Rivera disagreed, saying that there was help some times. More than anything, Rivera expects his tackles to play better in a big spot.
"You can't give (help) to him all the time. Sometimes you've got to make plays," Rivera said of Remmers, who had a nightmare game.
At some point Carolina needed to realize their tackles weren't going to win any one-on-ones Sunday night and reverse course.
Even when there was help, it was mostly ineffectual -- highlighted by backup running back Fozzy Whittaker actually chipping his own guy off a block.
As Denver found out in Super Bowl XLVIII, fans can have an effect on the outcome of a neutral-site game. A heavily partisan Broncos crowd forced the Panthers offense to go to a silent count much of the contest. That advantage allowed Miller and Ware to get off the snap another fraction of a second quicker. When you already have All-Pro talent, that split second can make all the difference.
"They had a great get-off," Remmers said. "They did a good job of getting off on the snap count and something I'm going to look to improve on this year."
