Found October 08, 2012 on NFL Draft Zone:

Yesterday, Luke Kuechly racked up 11 tackles, one interception and one pass breakup in the Panthers’ Week 5 loss to the Seahawks. Making a spot-start at middle linebacker in place of Jon Beason (knee), Kuechly was everywhere. The No. 9 overall pick sheds blockers with ease and goes sideline-to-sideline in unique fashion. He’s a threat to stick in the middle even when Beason gets back, and is definitely the player that you want to form your defense around.  Kuechly has been a great player and a big hitter for the Panthers.  Both Kuechly and Josh Norman (CB) are great pick ups if you play in a IDP league.

Cam Newton going through the Sophomore Slump

Cam Newton’s play this year is certainly giving credence to the idea of a sophomore slump.  The throw in that gif from late in the 4th quarter with a chance to get the lead virtually sums up his performances thus far this season.  He hasn’t been effective in any game this year, and his attitude seems to be getting worse with each loss; perhaps expectations were too high after...
