Panthers' Newton stays positive amid obstacles

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Cam Newton is staying positive - and productive - even though the obstacles seem to keep piling up in front of him. Newton is on a quest to lead the Panthers to the playoffs in back-to-back seasons for the first time in franchise history, but things haven't gone quite as planned. His year began with offseason ankle surgery, followed by fractured ribs in...

Carolina Panthers participating in a top Week 8 game to watch?

The leaves are turning. Halloween decorations are up throughout the neighborhood. And the days are getting shorter and shorter. What do those things signal?

That may sound nutty in Week 8, but that’s...

It’s time to trust the Packers’ defense

I trust Dom Capers. There, I said it out loud. No take-backs and all that, right? Sure it was a little shaky there in the first few weeks, and I was nodding along with demands for a regime change. What can I say? I’m fickle and impatient. But wasn’t Cam Newton on his way to being crowned one of the next big things? A mobile QB that was a dangerous threat outside the pocket? Well...

Hello Clay, It's Good to See You Again

The Packers best defensive player came under fire last week when he arguably had one of his worst games of his career against the Miami Dolphins. Matthews failed to record a tackle and was out of position on a number of plays. He didn’t stay home on the read-option plays and failed to win any of his one-on-one opportunities. Ordinarily people would have chalked it up to a quiet...

And The Winner Is…

This week’s poll asked who’ll win today’s game between Green Bay and the Panthers? You chose the Packers by 4 to 7 points (38.35%). I agree, although I’d feel a lot more confident if Green Bay was healthier. But even without four potential starters, the D should be able to keep the offensively-challenged Panthers under 30 points – as long as Cam Newton isn’t allowed to...

5 Reasons the Packers will beat the Panthers (and 1 reason why they might not)

I gotta admit, on Monday and Tuesday I was worried about the Green Bay Packers losing to the Carolina Panthers this week. Sam Shields and Datone Jones are out. Tramon Williams might also be out. Cam Newton is one of the best running quarterbacks in the league, and we all know what happens when the Packers encounter a running quarterback. Luke Kuechly is like Brian Urlacher and Patrick...

Panthers vs. Packers: Saturday Scoop

This week’s scoop will be a short and sweet one.  The Carolina Panthers and their quarterback Cam Newton are in the house and the Green Bay Packers better be on full alert. As much as we all know what Newton’s running capabilities are, and the Packers do as well, they still seem to struggle with the obvious.  Mobile quarterbacks have been the Packers’ kryptonite for the last...

Is Cam Newton of the Panthers one of the NFL’s least likeable quarterbacks?

Everybody knows who the most popular quarterbacks in the NFL are. You see their names at the top of the NFL’s jersey sales list just about every single year: Peyton Manning and his folksy charm. Tom Brady and his hot wife. Drew Brees and his classic underdog story. But what about those other guys? The ones with character flaws so deep that home town fans even feel awkward about...
