Signs pointing to Chudzinski as Offensive Coordinator?

Rumors are circulating that the Panthers are interested in Chargers Tight Ends / Assistant Head Coach Rob Chudzinski as their next offensive coordinator. “Chud”, a former tight end for the Miami Hurricanes during two championship runs during ’87 and ’89, has primarily been a tight ends coach through his coaching career.

Ron Rivera to be named Panthers head coach

Multiple reports are stating that Chargers defensive coordinator Ron Rivera will be named the next head coach of the Carolina Panthers shortly, most likely on Tuesday. UPDATE Sources are confirming Rivera is the next head coach, but no formal announcement has been made by the Panthers.

Few fans show up to see Bobcats vs. Grizzlies

So what happens when you have a blizzard hit the area (well, to us in Charlotte it’s a blizzard) and the other team is already in town? You play the game. The Bobcats and Grizzlies did not postpone their game Monday night, resulting in a few hundred fans getting great seats to see the contest….

No Cowher? Who says?

Sure, it makes sense that the Panthers would go for a young, up and coming coach. After all, they went to the Super Bowl with John Fox. But Fox also never had back to back winning seasons. He also only made the playoffs three times. Around some circles, Fox is regarded as a great coach….

Bobcats open season against the Mavericks

Granted, the NFL’s labor situation is far from decided, but several players have contracts that expire after the current season: Matt Moore, DeAngelo Williams, Dwayne Jarrett, Jeff…

thoughts on the final 53 – WR

The panthers cut Charlotte native Kenny Moore on Saturday and kept former second round pick Dwayne Jarrett insted, despite Jarrett’s disappointing on-field display over the last few seasons. Jarrett had been criticized for running wrong routes, lacking speed and the proper mind set to be successful in the NFL. Moore had a decent preseason, filling…

thoughts on the final 53 – QB

Im not surpised that the Panthers decided to keep Tony Pike over Hunter Cantwell. There were a few reasons why it made sense, but the most impotant one is that Pike is under contract for multiple years. That assures them of having at least two QBs from this season back next season. Pike was a…

Moore discusses lack of production this preseason

On his website, Matt Moore wrote: “I think the lack of points we have scored in the preseason is not a true reflection of how the preseason has gone for the offense. We tried a lot of different things. I think our true offensive style will show through during the regular season and hopefully result…
