Was asking Panthers coach John Fox earlier if he was particularly disturbed about leading the league in penalties (38), considering he's always preached a "smart and tough" mantra.
"I’m more concerned about our record than stats," Fox replied. "And the most important stat is that W and L column. Always has been and always will be.
"I think I’ve even said stats are for losers."
I suppose that's fair, and I give him credit. Not once did he bring up the fact that teams get more penalties when they're playing without their starting quarterback.
