The Carolina Panthers need to think interior lineman in the NFL Draft

Glamorous. That’s not the word that comes to mind when thinking about players along the offensive line. And it’s especially not attributed to the guys in the middle of that group, the guards and center. While “skill-position” players get all of the headlines, and offensive tackles get the biggest contracts, interior linemen toil in relative anonymity. But in the center of...

2014 Carolina Panthers Season Evaluations: Offensive Line

For much of the 2014 season, the Carolina Panthers offensive line was just that, offensive.Veteran stalwarts Jordan Gross and Travelle Wharton retired in the offseason, removing the foundation of a line that had already been cracking. To replace them, Carolina did some reshuffling, moving former right tackle Byron Bell to the left side and inserting converted defensive tackle Nate...

Panthers Must Stick to Draft to Boost Offensive Line

There will be no shortage of offensive linemen available in the NFL once free agency begins on March 10. Considering the Carolina Panthers' current situation with their poor offensive line, many would think the team would attempt to sign at least one offensive linemen. However, the quality of said linemen is less than great. With Dave Gettleman's eye for talent, he's sure to see...

Panthers offensive line vastly improved with unexpected help

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- As early as training camp, it was obvious to most observers that the offensive line of the Carolina Panthers was going to be a major weak spot. There were essentially four positions being held by new players. The only mainstay was star center Ryan Kalil, but not even he, whom many consider to be the best center in the NFL, could prevent this offensive line from...

What is Carolina Looking for in the 2015 Draft?

After Carolina lost to Minnesota in Week 13 and slumped to 3-8-1, there were many Panthers fans who began to look forward to having a top-ten pick in the 2015 NFL draft. Nobody predicted what would happen next. Four straight victories propelled Ron Rivera's men to a second consecutive NFC South title, a feat that had never been managed before. However, now Carolina is sliding down...

Holiday Bonus Hot Cheryl Kalil Twitter Action!

Y’all may be fed up with Matt Kalil this season (Well, so are we … We did give him a poop stamp earlier this week), but one thing we will NEVER tire of is his hot mom, Cheryl Kalil.

Ryan Kalil can empathize with struggling brother Matt

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Perhaps no one knows Minnesota Vikings left tackle Matt Kalil, or what he's going through, better than his brother, Ryan. Ryan Kalil, the Carolina Panthers' center, has watched his brother from afar, spoken with him often and can sympathize with some of the struggles Matt is having in his third NFL season. With their two teams playing this week, the two brothers...

Panthers That Need to Step Up Now and Beyond

1. Byron Bell (or a replacement left tackle)Cam Newton has been sacked 32 times this season and the tackles have been the weak link on that line. Ryan Kalil has been a rock inside and missing Amini Silatolu for a chunk of the year has not helped. But if the offensive tackles don’t protect Newton from taking so many hits we will continue to see Newton on the injury report week in...

Four Downs: Panthers' weaknesses exposed in loss to Steelers

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Carolina Panthers entered the nationally televised Sunday night game against Pittsburgh riding high and undefeated. The Steelers, however, humbled Carolina and exposed a lot of the weaknesses the Panthers had hidden fairly well in the first two games as Pittsburgh won 37-19 at Bank of America Stadium. Here are four key points with the Panthers that occurred...

Carolina living off turnovers and not turning it over

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Carolina Panthers sit 2-0 on the season, and while it may be a surprise to some, there are two very simple reasons why that's the case: 1. Everybody knows the defense is one of the best in the NFL, and it shouldn't be that much of a surprise that in the two games Tampa and Detroit have combined for a total of 21 points. The defense of the Panthers has corralled...

Panthers not focusing on postseason odds after 2-0 start

CHARLOTTE -- If you're a believer in statistics and a Carolina Panthers fan, then you have to be extremely happy where they stand after just two games into the 2014 NFL season. Following Sunday's 24-7 win against Detroit, Carolina is one of six teams to have a perfect 2-0 record. Philadelphia could join that group with a win against Indianapolis Monday night.

Panthers' O-line has their hands full with Suh, Lions defense

But he's also one of the NFL's premier defensive tackles. Rest assured that when he and Detroit Lions teammates line up against the Panthers on Sunday (Bank of America Stadium), Suh will do everything...

Carolina Panthers center and perennial Pro Bowler Ryan Kalil is used to having several players rotate at the starting right guard and right tackle spots. Those positions, in particular, have had nearly as many changes over the last six years as Jay Leno has cars. However, Kalil always knew that if nothing else, Jordan Gross would be holding down the fort at left tackle, regardless...
