Panthers 2016 Position Review: Wide Receivers

Success is in our hands, unless we drop it. For a team that looked stacked in the Wide Receivers department prior to the season, the stats themselves don’t really reflect that at all. We ended up going from an embarrassment of riches with returning number one receiver Kelvin Benjamin, second year up and comer Devin Funchess and speedy vet Ted Ginn Jr, to just an embarrassment by...

A Four Round Panthers Mock to Love or Hate

I really like what Chad Reuter does for the Panthers in the first four rounds, provided these players match the hype. For me a four mock is perfect length. The first four rounds are where you get your potential starters plus it just gets to be more of a crap shoot going any further. I will say I like the results of this mock though not a single one slides into a starting spot based...

If tagged by the Panthers, will Kawann Short sign it?

With the franchise tag window open and an apple pie still slowly cooling on the ledge, the question becomes whether any of the players who ultimately receive the one-year payday that goes along with being blocked from the open market will view it as a turd sandwich. Guys like Kirk Cousins won’t; at $23.94 million…

What moves should the Carolina Panthers make in the offseason?

From the moment James White‘s outstretched fingertips broke the plane of the end zone in overtime of Super Bowl 51, the NFL offseason had begun. Well, maybe not for Tom Brady and co., but for the rest of the league, the 2016-17 season was over, and a new season was in full force. Before the NFL draft takes place from April 27-29, teams will pursue, discard and sign many players...

Carolina Panthers Should Consider Desean Jackson

With Ted Ginn Jr. hitting the open market again, there is a chance he takes a pay check elsewhere, similarly to 2014 when he bolted Charlotte for Arizona. I am somewhat a proponent for trying to retain Ginn, and you would expect he would be smart enough to stay in the one place he has had success in his career. After finishing his tenth season in the NFL, Ginn has over 50% of his...

To get his Atlanta Falcons fired up before their NFC Championship game against the Green Bay Packers, WWE Hall of Famer and 16-time world champion Ric Flair gave a pep talk to the team in a Facebook video. It wasn’t on the level of elbow dropping a book or stripping down to his boxers in the middle of a wrestling ring but it was a decent promo. The issue is that Flair lives in...
