Panthers WR coach on doubters: ‘Pisses me off’

The common criticism of the Carolina Panthers is a star-less receiving corps, and position coach Ricky Proehl is sick of hearing it. Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic notes the 17-year NFL veteran said losing No. 1 wideout Kelvin Benjamin undoubtedly hurt, but being called the offense’s weak link has motivated the Carolina receivers. Proehl said: “It pisses me off, I ain’t...

Panthers WR coach Ricky Proehl excited about the offensive weapons

To say that Ricky Proehl had a tough first two seasons as the wide receivers coach of the Carolina Panthers would be a bit of an understatement. Not only did his group of receivers in 2014 feature absolutely zero players who had ever caught a pass from Cam Newton, but the group was led by a rookie in Kelvin Benjamin and two veterans in Jason Avant and Jerricho Cotchery. What a difference...
