As Ron Rivera goes, so do the Panthers.
Football coaches analyze video frame by frame, stopping and replaying tape to grade performances. They evaluate games, scrimmages and practices. Sometimes they seek outside advice they value.
The Carolina Panthers safety continues to call attention to systemic inequality and advocate for his friend Colin Kaepernick, but that got harder when Jay-Z joined forces with the NFL.
Good news: eight quarters of Panthers preseason football are now in the books. Bad news: there are still eight more to go. Last night Carolina participated in one of the most gruesome exhibition games we have witnessed. If not for a late surge led by Taylor Heinicke in the fourth quarter, it might well have qualified as the worst ever. Normally we share a takeaways post after each game, but in this case the action on the field was so bad that it defied description at times. What is there to say when teams aren't playing their best players and aren't using their real playbooks? The only takeaway that really matters from last night's game is that the NFL needs to do away with the four-game preseason
After Christian McCaffrey's break out season in 2019 is there anyone left who doesn't think he was worth the No. 8 overall pick in the 2018 draft? If so then I have nothing for you. Wait...yes I do. McCaffrey could easily improve on his 1,800 yards and 13 touchdowns combined rushing and receiving. He could actually improve on it a lot. Hey you don't have to believe me if you don't want to. I am an unabashed Panthers homer after all. Instead simply look to your fantasy draft boards. McCaffrey is being drafted on average as the second or third pick overall! Only Saquon Barkley is being drafted over McCaffrey on a consistent basis (which I approve by the way). Here's one of the best fantasy sites
This is not that. This is total irrational love (maybe slightly backed up by some facts) that our writers feel for certain players they're thinking about drafting in fantasy leagues this year, because sometimes you just have that gut feeling that an overlooked player, disappointing performer last year or deep sleeper is going to break out. Here are six players we have that feeling about: 1. WR Curtis Samuel, Carolina Panthers D.J. Moore is going to be a stud, too, but Samuel is going much lower in drafts … and his highlight reel last year was jaw-dropping. Couple that with some Ron Rivera gushing in training camp and increase usage (remember when we asked why he wasn't being used more?) and I'm
In the fifth edition of his drumbeats notebook, Matt Harmon checks in on the fantasy football stock of Kalen Ballage, Kyler Murray and more.
Please don’t overreact to Wednesday’s arrest of Carolina Panthers defensive end Bryan Cox Jr. for speeding and possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
Nebraska freshman quarterback Luke McCaffrey has turned a lot of heads during Husker Fall Camp. McCaffrey is making an impact at the quarterback position. McCaffrey said: "Its super fun its awesome about our system but what's super special about it is at any time who knows if the strategy will work and a player will make a play that is something that is super special." McCaffrey grew up in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, where he led Valor Christian High School to the State Championship. Luke is the son of NFL great Ed McCaffrey and the brother of Carolina Panther All-Pro Christian McCaffrey, so he was raised on football. McCaffrey said: "My family played a lot of backyard football in the day I was
The AJC's Super 11 team of five years ago can claim two consensus college All-Americans, Roquan Smith and Mitch Hyatt, and two more that were selected in the most recent NFL Draft, Terry Godwin and Chuma Edoga. The most highly regarded recruit at the time, Trenton Thompson, didn't pan out, proving again that it's hard to live up to the highest of expectations. Here's a look back at the 2014 Super 11: *Kawon Bryant, North Oconee:Bryant rushed for more than 6,500 yards in his high school career and went down as one of the 10 most prolific rushers in state history. He spent two seasons at Georgia Military, was the team MVP the second season, and played a year at Faulkner University, an NAIA school
He had been Manhertz for most of his first 35 games with Carolina after signing with the Panthers midway through the 2016 season. He had only made four catches for 29 yards, prior to the 50-yard touchdown catch, used mostly as a blocking tight end. But this week, Manhertz has come alive in the passing game, using his 6-6 frame to get leverage in red zone situations. More passes have been thrown his way partly because second-year tight end Ian Thomas has been sitting out with a rib injury. But Manhertz has been preparing for this opportunity and working hard on his route-running and catching. “Every year I try to add bits and pieces to my game, both in the run game and the pass game,” Manhertz
With the 2019 season just around the corner (it's less than a month away, y'all!), we reached out to our group of Carolina Panthers fans who have signed up for our FanPulse surveys to get an idea of how confident they are in the direction of the team. Well, the people have spoken, and as it should probably be expected with the fresh start of a brand new season upon us, Panthers fans are very confident in the direction the team is headed. An astonishing 93 percent of Panthers fans said they are confident in the team's direction. The Panthers had a solid free agency period when they added several quality veterans to the roster (notably center Matt Paradis, defensive tackle Gerald McCoy and edge rusher Bruce Irvin) and re-signed a few of their own free agents (safety Eric Reid, right tackle Daryl Williams, safety Colin Jones and defensive tackle Kyle Love).
