Are the Patriots treated differently than other teams?

Here is a touchy subject around the league but one that needs to be said. The New England Patriots are treated differently than other teams around the NFL. The Atlanta Falcons have a rogue employee, with the unlikely name of Roddy White, crank up sound in the Georgia Dome. There is no evidence of anyone else being involved, certainly not a marquee player like Matt Ryan. The team looses...

3 reasons why Graham Gano is the next great member of the Carolina Panthers

When it comes to the Carolina Panthers’ kicking game, one name has always been synonymous with greatness: John Kasay.

NFC South Off-Season Grades: Panthers

Since we are now approaching training camp I figure it’s time I get off my butt and start taking a look into the 2015-16 season.

Now to be clear this isn’t necessarily a grade on the team overall, that will come later when I scout them, it’s just...

Why is Derek Anderson so important to the Carolina Panthers?

During the course of an NFL season, there comes a time when backup quarterbacks have to answer the call. The big question for most teams is whether their second-string quarterback has what it takes to either continue a winning streak or break the team out of a slump. Some teams may go the entire season not knowing if their backup is capable, but some actually get the opportunity...

Devin Funchess on goal for 2015: 'To be Rookie of the Year'

Devin Funchess isn't one to shy away from the spotlight it seems, and he's also not a player who's lacking confidence in any way, shape or form. At least, that's one way to look at it. The other way to look at it is that the newest receiver for the Carolina Panthers is simply confident in his own abilities and thinks that he'll produce with his new team immediately. More likely than...

The Carolina Panthers are proving themselves to be the classiest team in the NFL

For the second time in half as many days a standard bearer for the Carolina Panthers organization has reached out to those devastated by last week’s killings in Charleston. Its owner, Jerry Richardson, through a generous donation and its franchise quarterback by visiting the bereaved. There are those cynical of any good-hearted deed done by high profile characters. But in my opinion...

Do the Carolina Panthers have the best defensive coordinator in the NFL?

Even with Cam Newton acting as the face of the franchise, there’s no question that the Panthers defense is the reason for their recent success. In each of the last two seasons, it has been the play of Luke Kuechly and Thomas Davis, as well as the patchwork play of the secondary, that has carried Carolina to consecutive NFC South titles. And who should we be giving credit to? Yes...

Cam Newton is the ultimate class-act

Cam Newton for all intents and purposes, is one of the most athletic quarterbacks to ever play in the NFL. With his large size (6’5″ 245 lbs) for the position, ability to scramble to make plays and slinging it as well as any quarterback in the game, makes him must-see TV. Yet, it is what he does away from the field that truly gives him great character and equal amount of class...

Even after multiple additions, Bersin still very alive in WR battle

To say that the Carolina Panthers upgraded this offseason at the wide receiver position would be a major understatement. Not only did the team draft Devin Funchess, bring back Ted Ginn Jr. and sign Jarrett Boykin to pair with Kelvin Benjamin, but they also return Stephen Hill and Corey Brown as well. So, does that leave Brenton Bersin as the odd man out...
