Tom Sorensen on Super Bowl 50: Panthers couldn’t handle Broncos defense

Posted on 15 February 2016 by WNST Staff

Tom Sorensen covers the Carolina Panthers for the Charlotte Observer, and he joined Nestor and WNST to discuss the Panthers magical ride to a 15-1 regular season on their way to ultimately losing Super Bowl 50 to the Denver Broncos.

Tom pointed out that while the Panthers have the same sort of atmosphere surrounding the team as the Ravens do, as far as football being the main sport in Charlotte, this is the first year that the Panthers were the toast of the NFL.

“The NFL has long been the number one sport here, and after that it’s college basketball and college football, but this is the first season the Panthers have had where they were recognized as the best team in football,” Sorensen said. “They attracted so many peripheral fans, and it was cool to see. No matter where you went, whether it be the grocery store, bars, or gym, it was what people were talking about.”

As for the Super Bowl, Tom doesn’t think you have to dig too deep to understand what went wrong for the Panthers.

“It was a pretty simple game,” Sorensen said. “They could not handle that defense of Denver. It’s a truism, but the best defensive team usually wins.”
