Panthers' rookie linebacker Luke Kuechly has grown accustomed to winning awards and with the way he's currently playing more could soon be on the way.
Kuechly leads the NFL with 131 tackles and is making a strong push for defensive rookie of the year honors. Kuechly had 16 tackles this past Sunday as the Panthers held the Falcons to 35 yards rushing in a 30-20 victory earning him NFC defensive player of the week honors.
The attention makes the humble 21-year-old a little uncomfortable, prompting him to deflect all the credit to his defensive teammates.
But coaches and teammates alike see incredible potential in Kuechly.
Coach Ron Rivera says with Cam Newton and Kuechly the Panthers have ''their quarterbacks of the future on both sides of the ball.''
BEST OF MAXIM
Isaac Newton once wrote “For every action, there is a reaction.” and no quarterback has had a bigger reaction from fans or foes than Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton. Even after winning the Heisman Trophy in 2010 and NCAA Football Championship in 2011. Newton has been compared to everything from Jamarcus Russell to Ben Roethlisberger, but Cam Newton is Cam Newton and...
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The 2009 football season might as well be an eternity ago for Thomas Davis.
It was the first of many frustrating years for Davis, beginning a trend that many around the Carolina Panthers organization didnt think would end positively for the well-liked and respected linebacker out of Georgia
But when Matt Ryans pass that was intended for wide receiver Roddy White...
At 4-9, the Carolina Panthers’ season looks far different now than most fans would have imagined in August. Coming off a 2011 season that was full of improvement and optimism, the sky was the limit for the Panthers. Cam Newton, a rookie quarterback, was the team’s most valuable player, and he proved to be the centerpiece of the organization moving forward. The Panthers...
The Bears have signed Olindo Mare to replace Robbie Gould.Fantasy Spin:The 39-year-old Mare kicked for Carolina last season, going 22-for-28 in field goal tries and 44-for-45 on extra point attempts. He's not going to get you many 50-yard field goals as he's attempted just four over the past three seasons, making one of them.
You may have heard Carolina Panthers linebacker screaming at the Atlanta Falcons to get off field in Charlotte. Of course, he said it with a much more colorful adjective. He screamed it repeatedly as the players were, in fact, leaving the field. It was probably one of the bigger wins of the season for the [...]
There was something of a controversy that came about following the Panthers' upset victory over the Falcons last Sunday, when Carolina defensive end Greg Hardy told Falcons players to "get the f**k off our field."
Proving payback is indeed a female dog, it was the same comment quarterback Matt Ryan made after Atlanta's Week 4 win.
Though, as we've come...
Following the Carolina Panthers’ 30-20 win over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, Carolina defensive end Greg Hardy had some unfriendly words for the Falcons players when telling them to get off the field. Hardy made the comments as a direct response to Matt Ryan, who the Panthers say was disrespectful to them after the two teams met earlier this season.

Another team that has been better than their record all season, the Panthers showed it last week, beating the Falcons, who they almost knocked off earlier this season. Week 16, they host the Raiders, which should get them their 5th win of the season, but I don’t know...
There are only so many chances you can give a team, especially if that team is the Atlanta Falcons.
One week after holding off a late push from the New Orleans Saints, the Falcons went on the road looking to send a message against the lowly Carolina Panthers. Instead, the Panthers drubbed the Falcons, with Cam Newton running wild over a defenseless Atlanta defense.
The Falcons lost...
