Panthers following NFL’s lead on Greg Hardy punishment

It’s a banner day for women everywhere around the NFL. After Ray Rice’s two-game suspension for knocking his wife unconscious (Hey, she apologized), it now appears the league’s other star abuser of women is going to continue to make his full $13 million this year. According to Bill Voth of Black and Blue Review, Panthers General Manager Dave Gettleman indicated the team was...

Do the Carolina Panthers have any of the top-10 most overrated players in the NFL?

Yesterday, the fine folks at Grantland released the second half of their annual NFL trade value list, which ranks each player in the league based on how much interest they would garner on the open market. It’s an interesting list, one that is fun to compare with a similar piece cover32 posted earlier in the offseason. While there were plenty of similarities between the two...

Buy or Sell: Jerricho Cotchery

Few off-seasons have been as strange as the one experienced by Carolina Panthers. Coming off a surprise trip to the playoffs, fans watched as virtually the entire WR corps was traded or allowed to leave as free agents. The team is left with TE Greg Olsen and a collection of rookies and free agents that will cobble together Cam Newton’s supporting cast for 2014. The highest expectations...

Carolina Panthers chances of winning the NFC South could hinge on this question

Thank goodness, football is here. All week, training camps open around the NFL, as teams begin the journey toward Super Bowl XLVIX in Glendale, Arizona. Every team in the league has questions that need to be answered, as no one has a clear and easy road map to the Promised Land. But the difference between being a contender and an also-ran usually comes down to one key issue. So as...

Carolina Panthers will have fierce defense, running game in ’14

The talent is definitely there for the Carolina Panthers on D. However, it seems that everyone else in the NFC NASCAR division improved, or at least they addressed their weaknesses this offseason. The Panthers tried but got worse. The Atlanta Falcons should leapfrog Carolina this year. And the Saints are a notch or two above both of the teams. That said, I would not be surprised...

Carolina Panthers: Things that we didn't get about Steve Smith

The Carolina Panthers have proven to be a franchise that is thoroughly underappreciated in my mind as of 2011. I don’t blame the NFL public at large for being slow to figure out the Panthers are for real considering the previous era riddled with multiple failed features at the quarterback position including Matt Moore, Chris Weinke, and Jimmy Clausen among others. I’ll admit...
