A leaner, meaner Cam Newton? Carolina Panthers fans rejoice.

One of the Carolina Panthers story lines that has gone largely under-reported this offseason is the apparent physical transformation of starting quarterback Cam Newton.  With so much attention being paid to his surgically repaired shoulder (and deservedly so) it seems the rest of his physique has gone unnoticed. I remarked during the Carolina Panthers OTA […] The post A leaner...

Making an NFL GM change in the summer has its benefits

Perhaps it’s not something bound to be remembered by most fans, but the 2017 NFL offseason has been notable for the way teams have shaken up their front offices late in the roster-building process. Since the NFL Draft, three teams have made a change at general manager: the Buffalo Bills dismissed Doug Whaley, the Kansas City Chiefs said goodbye to John Dorsey, and just this week...

Carolina Panthers: Landry could transcend the receiving corps

The organization has made an admirable effort to surround Cam Newton with quality receivers. Kelvin Benjamin was drafted in 2014 in the first round, grabbed Devin Funchess with their second round pick in 2015, and did their best to fill in the rest of the gaps along the way. With that being said, there may be an interesting scenario involving a fellow receiver from the 2014 draft...

The NFL offseason seems far longer compared to other major sports, and as we impatiently wait for the season to begin we have a lot of time to think and hope and pray that this year will be better than the last.

The Carolina Panthers just spent three days executing the dumbest social media gimmick of all time

In the year 2017, all entities must have two distinct but intersecting identities: one as a flesh-and-blood person/company/football team and another on social media. And so millions of hours of brainpower are spent every day trying to turn mindless musings into likes and retweets, for the sake of brand-building or just for the yuks.
