I swear it seems like the Packers are never playing at Lambeau Field on Sundays.  This sucks because honestly there is no better Sunday than one spent at Lambeau Field and the surrounding area.  Honestly it feels that way because it’s accurate.  The Packers have played one home game on a Sunday so far.  The team has 10 games left and six of those are at home.  Green Bay has...

Is Kawann Short of the Carolina Panthers the best pass rusher in the NFL?

If you’ve heard it once you’ve heard it a hundred times. The NFL is becoming a passing league more and more every day. This means that the relative value of certain positions has changed over time. It used to be that running backs and inside linebackers were considered far more important. Today it’s all about quarterbacks, wide receivers and pass rushers. Everybody likes to...

Just when you think there’s nothing to talk about, ESPN publishes a story where 26 NFL insiders (head coaches, general managers, coordinators, even a top executive) evaluated every starting quarterback in the NFL.

Do the Carolina Panthers have a top-10 cornerback in the NFL?

Typically speaking, sports fans tend to worry about two things – the past and the future.

Looking back at the 2013 Carolina Panthers draft class one year later

Grading last year’s draft is almost as foolish as grading this upcoming draft the day after, but nowadays people want instant analysis so that’s what we at cover32 are going to give them. The best we can do is grade based on what we know from one year of this class being in the league. As the 2008 draft showed us, year one performance doesn’t mean the player will or won’t...

Linebacker didn’t seem like a huge need two years ago when Carolina took Luke Kuechly in the Top 10. From his time with the New York...
