Football Extra Points:
The Carolina Panthers looked like an exciting young team last season. This season they've looked lost and underachieved on offense.
As we get closer to the end of the season it's time to start looking ahead to the coaching changes for next year.
Here's a quick look at the teams I think will, or should, be looking for a coaching change when the season ends.
Buffalo Bills - The Bills spent a lot of money on Defense bringing in Mario Williams this offseason, that did it pay off at all. On top of that they paid Ryan Fitzpatrick like a starting QB and they're finding out that he isn't one. They can run the ball but lack talent on both sides of the ball. I think ultimately it'll be the Fitzpatrick decision that costs Galey in Buffalo.
Jacksonville Jaguars - The Jags are a franchise in a difficult position. They have a new Owner and no one is showing up to the games. They thought Gabbert was a franchise QB, I never did, and it turns out he's...
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...
Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart is out for Sunday's game against San Diego with an ankle injury.Fantasy Spin:Stewart suffered a left high-ankle sprain and has missed Carolina's last two games. Coach Ron Rivera said Brandon LaFell was closer to returning than Stewart and with a healthy DeAngelo Williams and Mike Tolbert there was no reason to rush Stewart back into the lineup.
Panthers receiver Brandon LaFell (foot, toe) is questionable for Sunday's game against San Diego. Coach Ron Rivera called it 50-50 when asked about the chance of Lafell playing.Fantasy Spin:Not only does LaFell have a turf toe injury, he's also dealing with a chipped bone in his foot. Louis Murphy will start if LaFell is inactive and caught five balls for 36 yards last week.
The Carolina Panthers have ruled running back Jonathan
Stewart out for today’s contest against the San Diego Chargers, while wide
receiver Brandon LaFell and linebacker James Anderson are questionable to play.
Stewart has been sidelined since sustaining an ankle injury during
a Nov. 26 contest against the Philadelphia Eagles. The running back missed
practice all week and has...
Veteran wide receiver Steve Smith is showing no signs of slowing down as he continues his march toward possibly becoming the first Panther in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Smith's latest 100-yard receiving game Sunday against Atlanta was the 43rd of his career, putting him in the top 10 in NFL history.
He currently ranks 26th all-time in yards receiving and 32nd in receptions...
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...
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...
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.
As you can see in this video...
Last week: 27 (+2)
Net points per drive: -0.38 (24th)
DVOA: -1.6% (16th)
Weighted DVOA: -1.4% (16th)
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...
Carolina Panthers (4-9) at San Diego Chargers (5-8)
I picked the Chargers to win at home against the Ravens and Bengals respectively in week 12 and 13 because, among other reasons, they always start playing really well at this point in the season, even when their season has been lost. Well, they couldn’t quite close the deal in either of those games, though they made it close and...
I knew that it was all too early to get excited about the “new” Chiefs team when they beat the Carolina Panthers last week. I was really hoping against hope that it was not a fluke but somewhere, deep down inside of my soul, I thought it was.
SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Suffice it to say that Norv Turner didn't receive a game ball after this stinker.
On a fittingly glum, misty afternoon, the San Diego Chargers' slim playoff hopes were extinguished by Mike Tolbert, Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers.
Although realistically eliminated weeks ago, the punchless Bolts finally got the mathematical heave-ho in a 31-7 pratfall...
Hard to believe, but tonight’s bout between the Bengals and Eagles is the last Thursday Night Football of the 2012-2013 season. So has the extended Thursday night schedule worked out this year? Some highlights:
September 20: Giants 36, Panthers 7. The only Carolina score was from a one-yard Cam Newton leap over the pile into the end zone.
September 27: Ravens 23, Browns 16. Cleveland...
