1. The Panthers gameplan was better than the Bears. Carolina played good enough to win this game, but lost it in the end. Stop me if you have heard this before. The gameplan was shifted from the normal spread offense that the Panthers normally run to a more traditional-style scheme to help quarterback, Cam Newton with his reads and to also hopefully spring a more efficient rushing attack. On defense, Carolina played aggressive with Chicago's wide receivers in a bump-and-run style and brought extra blitzers to get after quarterback, Jay Cutler. It worked. At least in the first half. The Panthers went away from it in the second half and on the final possession for the Bears the Panther's coaches elected to sit in soft coverage with no blitzers. And it got them beat.2. New running game implemented by Carolina. The Panthers were able to eclipse the 100-yard rushing mark with 119 on the ground lead by running back, Jonathan Stewart who rushed 17 times for 42 yards. Cam Newton had...

Cam Newton may have been the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year last season, but at least one person believes the second-year quarterback may need to start worrying about his job security.
FOX NFL Sunday analyst Jimmy Johnson thinks that the Carolina Panthers’ decision to fire general manager Marty Hurney during the week could put Newton’s job status in jeopardy.
“With a new...
The Panthers are a franchise in complete disarray. So far this season, their quarterback has had episodes of showing a severe lack of mental toughness, they've fired their general manager, and now their head coach is publicly stating the team is without a leader, not that it surprises anyone to hear it. Rivera said during an interview WFNZ’s The Drive, "Some people...
Cam Newton showed his lack of leadership by the way he spoke to the media in the previous weeks. Is it the team that can't produce, Cam, or both?The Carolina Panthers haven't had one single game with a rusher with over 100 yards. The defense ranks 19th in both rush and pass defense. Plus, players on the defensive side, like Chris Gamble, have been sidelined with injuries...
Jay Cutler dropped the f-bomb on his own fans, and Cam Newton strangely left the field in seclusion and didn't congratulate, hug or even recognize a teammate who had saved him by recovering his reckless fumble in the end zone for a touchdown.
So it was a special moment Sunday when these two quarterbacks, now known for their self-absorption and sulking, faced each other. It was...

The Panthers are reeling fast at 1-5. It doesn’t get any easier as they face a pack of hungry Bears looking to feast on Cam Newton and company.Cam Newton is overrated!I didn’t like him at Auburn and I don’t think he is a good NFL quarterback. Yes, I think he will be a bust, and yes I am an African-American, so you can throw the race card out the window. The bust comparisons...
It’s Week 8 in the NFL and the Carolina Panthers are 1-5. Cam Newton has been heavily criticized again this year for his childish mannerisms on the sidelines. In fairness to the Panthers they have been hit hard by the injury bug. Many of their big name players are out for the season including Chris Gamble, Jon Beason and Ryan Kalil. The atmosphere in the stadium was full of hope...
When you have a "franchise quarterback" and your team is under performing, then a change must be made. Usually that comes at the head coaching position. You're not going to trade or release Phillip Rivers or Cam Newton in favor of a should be off/def coordinator. Sometimes GM's are quick on the trigger and sometimes they hold on too long hoping that the guy...
The Carolina Panthers are on the fast track to becoming hopeless. Carolina has something of a dynamic foundation to build upon.
None of that matters when, a team loses faith in its direction and its collective will to win.

The Chicago Bears staged a tremendous comeback over the Carolina Panthers Sunday afternoon at Soldier Field in Chicago, Illinois.

However, about halfway through the third quarter, this game changed in a huge...
Depending where your teams bye week is scheduled, this is pretty much around the mid-point mark of the NFL season. Some teams are separating themselves from the bunch as being better than the rest, and some still have a chance to turn things around. Then there are the others who are in need of a re-haul. And waiting until the end of this season won't be fast enough for a...
