Buy or Sell: Jerricho Cotchery

Few off-seasons have been as strange as the one experienced by Carolina Panthers. Coming off a surprise trip to the playoffs, fans watched as virtually the entire WR corps was traded or allowed to leave as free agents. The team is left with TE Greg Olsen and a collection of rookies and free agents that will cobble together Cam Newton’s supporting cast for 2014. The highest expectations...

Carolina Panthers chances of winning the NFC South could hinge on this question

Thank goodness, football is here. All week, training camps open around the NFL, as teams begin the journey toward Super Bowl XLVIX in Glendale, Arizona. Every team in the league has questions that need to be answered, as no one has a clear and easy road map to the Promised Land. But the difference between being a contender and an also-ran usually comes down to one key issue. So as...

Panthers Sign Veteran C Fernando Velasco

  According to Panthers DE Charles Johnson, veteran C Fernando Velasco has signed a contract with Carolina on Wednesday.

Carolina Panthers will have fierce defense, running game in ’14

The talent is definitely there for the Carolina Panthers on D. However, it seems that everyone else in the NFC NASCAR division improved, or at least they addressed their weaknesses this offseason. The Panthers tried but got worse. The Atlanta Falcons should leapfrog Carolina this year. And the Saints are a notch or two above both of the teams. That said, I would not be surprised...

Carolina Panthers Training Camp preview: A new star ready to emerge at linebacker?

We’ve already looked at every offensive position and examined the defensive line yesterday.

Carolina Panthers: Three Bold Predictions For Training Camp

At the beginning of the season, Ron Rivera looked like he wouldn’t make it to midseason before being fired in Carolina. At the end of the season, he was Coach of the Year. The Carolina Panthers were the feel good story of the year in the NFL and proved the former Chicago Bears star could take a team, build a solid defense, and have the offense play up to its counterpart’s standard...

Carolina Panthers: Things that we didn't get about Steve Smith

The Carolina Panthers have proven to be a franchise that is thoroughly underappreciated in my mind as of 2011. I don’t blame the NFL public at large for being slow to figure out the Panthers are for real considering the previous era riddled with multiple failed features at the quarterback position including Matt Moore, Chris Weinke, and Jimmy Clausen among others. I’ll admit...
