Panther voice Mick Mixon on blowout loss to Packers (AUDIO)

Carolina PanthersTonight we welcomed into the program our good friend, and play-by-play man for the Carolina Panthers, Mick Mixon.  Mick joins us every Monday to break down the Panthers’ action from Sunday.

Yesterday was not a good outing whatsoever for the Panthers at Lambeau Field.

Packer quarterback Aaron Rodgers and his offense lit up the Panthers D early and often.  Rodgers threw three for three more scores, and went his 6th straight game without throwing an interception.

Tonight Mick provided us with his perspective on the broadcast crew’s trip to historic Lambeau, discussed the Luke Kuechly ejection, and much more with SportsTalk.
