The Penalty Flag:
Adversity can be defined in many capacities. It is one of the most telling signs of a person’s character and can be an indicator of who you want in your corner throughout life. Who responds to adversity the best? Vince Lombardi once said: “The real glory is being knocked to your knees and then coming back. That’s real glory. That’s the essence of it.”
Thomas Davis, the weak side linebacker for the Carolina Panthers, could be the poster boy for the word, “adversity.” He’s been knocked down to his knees and in his case, he practically lost a knee. This is a man who has had three torn ACL injuries in the past three years and is now back playing some of the best football he has ever played in his career.… Read more

Cam Newton somehow avoided ejection against the Raiders after kicking Tommy Kelly and bumping an official. See video here.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Giants director of college scouting Marc Ross is the leading candidate to take over as the Carolina Panthers new general manager.

Ross has been a GM candidate...
Cam Newton apologized Sunday for bumping official Jerome Boger during the Carolina Panthers’ 17-6 win over the Oakland Raiders, though he was less apologetic for kicking Tommy Kelly in the game.
Newton was steamed after what he likely felt was a late hit from Raiders safety Mike Mitchell in the fourth quarter. Newton got up immediately after being driven into the turf and aggressively...
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Giants’ director of college scouting Marc Ross is the “leading candidate” for the Carolina Panthers GM vacancy.
Brandon Beane took over for former GM Marty Hurney who was fired back in October, but the Panthers are looking for a different option to takeover in the coming weeks.
Ross has done a great job of bringing in plenty of quality...
Usually when I’m unfairly stereotyping Carolina Panthers fans, I accuse them of loving college basketball above all else. Then I remember that South Carolina exists. And so there’s the explanation behind a Panthers fan who used the Gamecocks’ logo as the letter C in his customized “CAROLINA” jersey. It’s probably the most tacky thing you’ll see in Bank of America Stadium...
The Carolina Panthers have officially declared running back Jonathan Stewart as inactive, meaning that DeAngelo Williams will once again serve as the starting running back in Week 16 against the Oakland Raiders. Stewart was expected to miss this game, although the team was holding out some hope that he would be able to play in a limited capacity.
In the end, Carolina felt as if the...

CHARLOTTE, N.C. Three years. Thats how long its been since the Carolina Panthers won three games in a row, which they accomplished Sunday with a 17-6 win over the Oakland Raiders.
But after the game, the bulk of the chatter wasnt focused on the Panthers newfound winning vibes or stingy defense.
It was focused on a bump and a kick.
Last week: 25 (+4)
Net points per drive: -0.20 (21st)
DVOA: 3.4% (14th)
Weighted DVOA: 8.1% (11th)
The Panthers have actually been playing some good football lately and have been an underrated team all year, losing just twice by more than 6 points (once on Thursday Night, in a game they were completely unprepared for). However, they’ve won 3 of their last 4, including...
Oakland Raiders (4-10) at Carolina Panthers (5-9)
One of my favorite trends is the six and six trend, which says that teams who finish with 6 wins or fewer are 23-64 ATS since 2002 as favorites of 6 or more. So far this year, teams that are currently 5-9 or worse are 2-5 ATS as favorites of 6 or more this season. The Eagles failed to cover week 1 as 8.5 point favorites in Cleveland...
True, this game would be considered irrelevant compared to other games on the Sunday slate. However this has the potential to be a solid quarterback duel in Charlotte.The Carolina Panthers come into this game winners of two straight including a win over the NFC best Atlanta Falcons 30-20 two weeks ago.The Panthers dispatched the San Diego Chargers last week 30-7 and will be facing...
Cam Newton threw for 170 yards with a touchdown and also ran for a score to lead the Carolina Panthers to a 17-6 win over the Oakland Raiders.
Steve Smith had four catches for 45 yards and a score and Greg Olsen hauled in six passes for 53 yards for the Panthers (6-9), who have won three straight and four of their last five. Rookie linebacker Luke Kuechly had nine tackles an one...
