Should the Panthers pass on drafting a QB?

With the NFL schedule being officially released earlier this week, we know that the Carolina Panthers will have one of,  if not the toughest schedule in the league. Knowing that, and knowing the likelihood that the Panthers will have another poor season and likely pick in the top 5 again next year, does it make…

Does is make sense to draft either Gabbert or Newton?

Details are starting to emerge about the new Carolina Panthers’ offense, with word that Rob Chudzinski’s offensive playbook is in excess of 900 pages, and that it contains a lot of shifts, motions and is a timing-based passing attack. Knowing that, and knowing that either Cam Newton or Blaine Gabbert probably won’t contribute for a…

Beason rankled at ESPN’s LB ranking

A few hours ago, Panthers linebacker Jon Beason (@jonbeason) had a few words to say about ESPN’s ranking him 9th in the league: They ask me if I think I’ve arrived? I always say, the day I do is the day I stop getting better. I don’t like to read into who has the ……

DeAngelo Williams, who is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent (or a restricted free agent, depending on a new CBA), recently said that he wouldn’t mind playing for the Miami Dolphins, but just like the Panthers, it made a difference who the quarterback was. “It’s all going to boil down to quarterbacks,” Williams told…

Is Patrick Peterson the Panthers’ Pick?

Possibly. Honestly, I think this whole deal about Cam Newton is a snowjob.

Ryan Mallett: The good, the bad and the ugly all on video

Most of us only know what we’ve heard about Arkansas QB Ryan Mallett. I didn’t watch many of his games, mainly because I’m not an Arkansas fan. But the beauty of the interwebs is that we can take snippets of Mallett’s performances and lump them into segments for easy consumption. Mallett, who stands 6’6″ and…
