Panthers nation has been in a constant panic this week.
First, it was another disconcerting press conference for their franchise quarterback, Cam Newton, after the Panthers suffered their fourth consecutive loss against the Dallas Cowboys last Sunday.
Then, Monday, things became even more hectic when Marty Hurney was abruptly fired less than halfway through his 11th season as general manager.
Before we all begin to hyperventilate, let's think back two years to the 2-14 season where the team finished dead last in almost every offensive category. At that point, every Panthers fan knew that the transformation from a doormat into a perennial playoff contender would not happen overnight. This became abundantly clear when the team used the first overall pick in the 2011 draft on Newton, who was labeled by most as a raw project with tremendous upside.

Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon believes race is a factor for all the criticism Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton receives. Newton disagrees.
"I haven't heard anything he said. But obviously Warren is a person I go to for guidance and leadership on the field and off the field.
When it comes to (racism) I don't think there is any at all." Said Newton...
Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson fired general manager Marty Hurney on Monday following a disappointing 1-5 start to the 2012 season.
Hurney, who held the general manager position since 2002, saw everything unravel quickly and unexpectedly over the past two-and-a-half seasons.
From 2002-2009, the John Fox-led Panthers made the playoffs three times (2003, 2005, 2008),...
Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams could be dealt before next week's trading deadline. SOURCE: Michael Lombardi, NFL NetworkFantasy Spin:Williams is expendable now that Jonathan Stewart has emerged as the team's every down back. The Panthers certainly wouldn't mind getting rid of his awful contract either (five years, $43 million). With that said, no deal is imminent...
I love Friday nights Juan…
Fantasy owners have been waiting for one of the Panthers RBs to emerge and J-Stew should be the guy that Rivera gives the rock to. Rivera confirmed that he wanted to get one RB in a rhythm instead of rotating all three guys in and out of the lineup. It’s about time.
Stewart is a top 5-10 talent at the RB slot, but the most carries he has received...
Carolina head coach Ron Rivera acknowledged Friday that Jonathan Stewart is officially the Panthers' starting running back.Fantasy Spin:Stewart hopped DeAngelo Williams on the depth chart last week against Dallas and it looks he'll continue to play with the starter distinction for the forseeable future. With that said, Stewart faces an uphill battle this week against the Bears.
For a team that has lost two of its best players to injury, linebacker Jon Beason and cornerback Chris Gamble, it would be expected to struggle defensively.
Through their first six games of the season, the Carolina Panthers‘ defense is allowing over 360 total yards and giving up 24 points per game. While not the best numbers in the league, it is an improvement over last year...
Carolina Panthers (1-5) at Chicago Bears (5-1) I normally hate laying more than a touchdown, but I like the Bears this week for several reasons. The first reason is simply that I think they’re the best team in the league in this wide open NFL (the undefeated Falcons have played a cupcake schedule and won [...]
The Carolina Panthers (1-5) and the Chicago Bears (5-1) will meet for the eighth time ever on Sunday afternoon.
The Bears lead the all-time series 4-3. Last season, the Panthers came to Soldier Field and fell short 34-29, but gave the Bears everything they had.
The Bears will don their alternate jerseys on Sunday that honor the 1940's "Monsters of the Midway."
