Panthers' Benjamin says rookie wall won't stop him

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Panthers receiver Kelvin Benjamin says he has no plans on slowing down after needing just 11 games to establish new franchise rookie records for receptions, yards receiving and touchdowns in a season.

Carolina Panthers fan burns his own team on Twitter in epic fashion

The Carolina Panthers are one of the NFL’s biggest disappointments this season. After Cam Newton took a big leap forward in 2013, the front office robbed him of his receivers and the offense has taken a considerable step back.

Carolina Panthers: Terrible division only hope for terrible play

The 2014 season clearly hasn’t gone the way the Carolina Panthers envisioned it. However, there is hope, and that hope may lie in abysmal play of NFC South. The NFL’s worst division has combined for 13 wins, and is only one of two divisions without at least 20 combined wins (AFC South has 14 wins). The Carolina Panthers season woes have been well documented this year, ranging...

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...

The Carolina Panthers apparently have seen — and heard — enough of Jason Avant. Avant’s agent, Doug Hendrickson, sent out a cryptic tweet on Tuesday, implying the veteran receiver has been given his walking papers. Much better things ahead and role for Jason Avant.
