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.

Top cornerbacks in the draft: Do the Panthers need to take a corner in the first round?

Anybody who has followed the Carolina Panthers closely this past season and offseason recognizes that Carolina has three key weaknesses that must be addressed in the draft: wide receiver, offensive line, and secondary. We’ve paid a lot of attention to the first two, but with losing starters Captain Munnerlyn and Drayton Florence, cornerback is arguably just as big of a need. Even...

Carolina Panthers exploring options to replace Charles Godfrey

Which Top 10 free agent DB could help Arizona?

The defensive backfield is a position of flux for the Arizona Cardinals.

Cards' free-agency look: Cornerback

There is one certainty at cornerback for the Arizona Cardinals in 2014. That is Patrick Peterson. The three-time Pro Bowl corner enters his fourth season as one of the foundations of the Cards’ defense. He will for sure be on one side of the field, lining up across the opponent’s best receiver. But it's unclear who will start opposite Peterson. Last season it was Jerraud...

Titans come back to force OT, still lose to Cardinals, 37-34

It could have been a comeback for the ages, the sort of win a struggling coach and a struggling team needed to keep slim playoff hopes alive. It had a chance, as the Tennessee Titans came back from a 34-17 deficit to force overtime and won the coin toss. It then ended the way it looked like it would in the middle of the fourth quarter, though, with the Arizona Cardinals coming away...
