Cam Newton is apologizing for a mistake that likely cost the Carolina Panthers a victory last weekend, but there is no quarterback controversy for coach Ron Rivera's team.
Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll could be faced with one soon if rookie Russell Wilson can't limit his errors.
Newton and the Panthers will try to avoid a third consecutive loss when the Seahawks go for their first win in Charlotte in three tries Sunday.
Needing two yards for a game-clinching first down last Sunday at Atlanta, Newton fumbled on a third-down run that was recovered by teammate Mike Tolbert. Rivera decided to punt with 1:09 left instead of giving Newton another chance, and the Falcons responded with a 77-yard scoring drive that dropped Carolina (1-3) three games back of Atlanta for the NFC South lead.
"You have to protect the football," Newton said following the 30-28 defeat. "That was a key focus going into this game, and I fumbled. There's a lot of guys that are tr...
BEST OF MAXIM
Carolina Panthers’ receiver Brandon LaFell is still smarting from the heartbreaking loss to the Atlanta Falcons. The upstart target for Cam Newton didn’t feel like punting was the right choice in the waning moments of thier Sunday game. In the NFL it’s a game of inches, and pound of courage, they had the inches, just not the courage. Protecting a one point lead, the Panthers...
Former Seattle Seahawks great Warren Moon believes that head coach Pete Carroll needs to stop having rookie quarterback Russell Wilson play like a robot to limit turnovers.
“He feels that he can do more and handle more than they’re giving him,” Moon told Doug Farrar of Shutdown Corner.
“You’ve got to remember — Pete’s a defensive coach, and he preaches, ‘Turnovers...
Despite Seattle's offensive struggles in its first four games, the Seahawks are sticking with
rookie Russell Wilson as their starting quarterback. Coach Pete Carroll told The News Tribune of Tacoma, Wash., that Matt Flynn, the team's big
offseason acquisition, wasn't ready to play because of an elbow injury that has limited him in
practice. But Carroll later backtracked...
(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By TIM BOOTH AP Sports Writer The question asked of Seattle coach Pete Carroll had nothing to do with Bobby Wagner.
After the way Wagner has played in the first quarter of the season, Carroll made it a point to recognize how well his rookie middle linebacker is doing making the adjustment from college to the NFL.

Impressions, such a funny word isn’t it?
Root word is impress, as in I would like to see the Seattle Seahawks impress me over the next quarter of the season.
Past tense is impressed, as in the Seahawks defense really impressed me during the first half of the Monday Night Football game against the Packers.
Impressions? Now that is a totally...
When it comes to the most trusted, dignified journalists in American history, of course Geraldo Rivera will be forever atop the list. No one else has made a career out of being so right, all of the time, like the distinguished Mr. Rivera.
The latest example of Geraldo's class and dignity on television came as he discussed the Seattle Seahawks/Green Bay Packers controversial...
Replacement Refs, QB Controversy, Inconsistencies
In part one of our four part series, NWSB examined the first four games of the Seattle Seahawks‘ 2012 schedule. Fearlessly, I predicted that the Seahawks would find themselves sitting with a record of 3-1 at this point in the season and, needless to say, I was wrong.
It’s been a frustrating campaign so far — to say the least...
Playing to their level
The Seattle Seahawks went into St Louis on Sunday looking to make a name for themselves in the NFC West. After starting off the year with a heartbreaking loss at division rival Arizona, the Seahawks couldn’t afford to lose their second division game of the year.
Leave it to the Seahawks, though, and they’ll surprise you in many ways. After looking stellar...
According to Eric D. Williams of the Tacoma News Tribune, Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch fully participated in practice on Thursday.
This is great news since Lynch has been limited for the first quarter of the season with tightness in his back.
Amid the influx of horror stories we have heard about replacement officials and how awful they were for the game of football, there is at least one story that sticks out from all the rest. By blowing one of the biggest calls in NFL history and essentially handing the Seahawks a win over the Packers last week, the NFL’s replacement refs changed the lives of Branford, Ontario’s...
