Tuesday Turtle Spotlight: DJ Moore had a better day because of Ron Rivera

Rivera treated rookie DJ Moore the right way on Sunday

D.J. Moore’s two fumbles against Washington were an undeniable part of the Carolina Panthers loss on Sunday. The conservative, old school head coach that Ron Rivera often epitomizes might have taken the rookie out of the game after his first fumble. Instead, Rivera kept Moore in the game. Offensive coordinator Norv Turner called plays that gave Moore opportunities to be a part of the come back attempt. Quarterback Cam Newton trusted...

The Hog Molly Report: Panthers at Washington

The Panthers laid an egg in a game they should have won against Washington, so let’s talk about what parts the offensive and defensive lines played in this contest.

Welcome ladies and gentlemen to the Hog Molly Report, where winning in the trenches is all that matters. Before we begin, we open with the reciting of our usual motto:

“Big men allow you to compete. We're certainly going to look at the big hog mollies.”

In the spirit of Mr. Gettleman’s words (regardless of him having...

Monday Morning Optimist: I’m done defending Ron Rivera

The Carolina Panthers head coach has finally outrun my patience.

Ron Rivera is going on eight years of trying to establish the run in the Carolinas and it is past time he gave it a rest. If I thought he knew who I was then I would think he opened the game yesterday with five straight runs just to spite me. This is the part in the Optimist where I am supposed to point to the Panthers’ 3-2 record. I should say that there is still plenty of season left and that the Panthers are only getting...

Kevin Durant talks trash to Steph Curry after Washington beats Panthers

Kevin Durant did a little trash-talking toward teammate Steph Curry after the Washington Redskins beat the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. Durant, who is from the DC area, is a Redskins fan. Curry, who is from Charlotte, is a Panthers fan and even had interest in buying the team. Washington pulled out a 23-17 win over Carolina to make both teams 3-2 on the season. Durant went on his Instagram story to gloat in a profane message. He showed himself tossing aside a Panthers-colored shoe. He then...

3 winners, 5 losers from Panthers’ embarrassing loss to Washington

This was not a good game if you like the Carolina Panthers.

To put it bluntly, the Carolina Panthers played like garbage today. Washington outplayed them for four straight quarters, and came away with a 23-17 win that shouldn’t surprise anyone. The Panthers were simply outplayed and outcoached by an inferior team... again.

This routine is getting old, but yet here we are. The Panthers will continue to wallow in mediocrity as long as they continue to let this incompetent coaching staff...

Panthers play down to their competition and lose a game they shouldn’t have

The Panthers looked awful today, and paid the price for it with their second loss of the season.

The Carolina Panthers played the worst game they’ve played since their 17-3 loss to the Chicago Bears last season, and frankly heads should roll after this ludicrous display of “football”. The Panthers managed to make it believable that they could somehow come from behind and win in the end, but their incompetence reared its ugly head with two mind boggling plays on second and third down of...
