Carolina Panthers: Time for Cam Newton to prove his talent

Going into the 2018 NFL season the Carolina Panthers will be looking to see if quarterback Cam Newton can make a tremendous leap in his development as a football player. Last season, the Panthers were able to finish 11-5 before losing to the New Orleans Saints in the Wild Card Round of the NFL playoffs. That alone was a huge accomplishment for this group, especially given the amount of injuries sustained on the offensive side of the ball over the course of the year. Players like Greg Olsen...

Could Daryl Williams time in Carolina be coming to an end?

It was reported last week that offensive tackle Daryl Williams and the Carolina Panthers began negotiating talks about a contract extension. Williams was drafted by the Panthers back in 2015 as a fourth round draft pick out of Oklahoma University. But after getting more playing time this past season and becoming a regular starter, Williams was able to earn himself Second-Team All Pro honors (2017).He was even ranked one of the best tackles in the entire NFL. According to Bleacher Report, he...

BCI Hall of Fame Class of 2018: Luke Kuechly

I have a hard time coming up with an adequate way to describe Luke Kuechly’s time at Boston College outside of saying that calling him the best football player I’ve ever seen at BC feels like I’m selling him short. Matt Ryan was incredible and Andre Williams had a senior year for the ages, but for my money, Kuechly was on a level all by himself. From the time that Kuechly came to BC in 2009, he was not just one of the best players in the ACC, but in the country. A three year member...

Why Cam Newton is not the Carolina Panthers salary cap MVP

Unpopular opinion alert: Cam’s $21.5 million cap hit is right where it should be

Last week I highlighted the players who will likely compete to be the Panthers 2018 “Offensive Salary Cap MVPs” by significantly outplaying their 2018 cap hits. I narrowed the list down to C.J. Anderson, Jarius Wright, and Tyler Larsen, but several of the CSR faithful made the case in the comments that Cam Newton is the Panthers actual Salary Cap MVP.

I thought a healthy debate about Cam’s 2018 cap...

Panthers 2018 season opener countdown: 78 days to go

We continue our count down to the Panthers season opener.

Jersey number 78 remains unclaimed by a Panther at the moment. So here is a look back at the players that used to wear No. 78. Quick, name one right now and see if you are correct. Well the first Panther to wear No. 78 was one of our first two Panthers in history...

More evidence emerges suggesting that Luke Kuechly may be a good linebacker

Yesterday we talked about his pass coverage. Today we reiterate that Luke Kuechly is in fact good at football.

Panthers stat guy Will Bryan Tweeted out a fun little nugget today about everyone’s favorite middle linebacker today.

Luke Kuechly is the only defensive player in the NFL to be named AP All-Pro first team four times since 2013.

Taylor Heinicke hoping to catch on with Panthers

The Panthers are inexperienced at quarterback behind Cam Newton. After letting Derek Anderson walk in free agency, Carolina has Garrett Gilbert, its third-stringer last season, rookie Kyle Allen and Taylor Heinicke. Heinicke, claimed by the Panthers on April 16 after the Texans waived him, took nine snaps last season in Houston. That’s nine more than [more]

Kawann Short rated top player in his draft class after five years per PFF

Pro Football Focus has compiled the grades for this past season, and the best player of the 2013 draft class at this point is our dominant defensive tackle.

In a bit of information that won’t be surprising to any fan of the Carolina Panthers but might turn some heads across the NFL, Kawann Short has been named the most effective player in his 2013 draft class after five NFL seasons by Pro Football Focus.

Panthers and Daryl Williams not close to a new deal

The fourth year right tackle and the team are apparently very far apart in their salary negotiations.

The team has needed stability at either tackle position for quite some time now, and it looked like they found it last season when former fourth round pick Daryl Williams took several steps forward in his development and became the clear cut starter for the team. Williams went on to have an excellent season, one that earned him second team all-pro honors, and placed him as Pro Football Focus...

We are 81 days away from the beginning of the Carolina Panthers 2018 season. Since there are no current Panthers wearing the No. 81, let’s take a moment to reflect on the career of former Panthers wide receiver Ricky Proehl.

Proehl spent three of his 17 years with the Panthers (2003-2005) and was a key...
