Joe Brady comments on Cam Newton's future with Panthers

Not even 24 hours after LSU defeated Clemson in the national championship game, ESPN insider Adam Schefter revealed that Joe Brady would be departing for the NFL. He’ll be the offensive coordinator next season for the Carolina Panthers. Brady was an instrumental part to LSU’s revamped offense. The way he transformed the offense from a ground-and-pound attack to an aerial assault made him an appealing option on the coaching market. Even though LSU made a strong effort to keep Brady in...

Keep Sounding: Luke Kuechly is out, Joe Brady is in

Big changes are here.

Talk about a Tuesday. The Carolina Panthers had everyone on cloud nine when it was reported that Joe Brady was going to be the team’s next offensive coordinator. Then we had that cloud ripped out from under us when Luke Kuechly announced his retirement about two hours later. Safe to say that’s the most important Tuesday in franchise history so far.

That makes for a lot of talking points on today’s episode. They are:

Our feelings on the Joe Brady hire Joe...

Jaguars Interview Ben McAdoo, Scott Linehan for OC

The Jaguars interviewed former Giants head coach Ben McAdoo for their offensive coordinator vacancy, according to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport. McAdoo, who did not coach in 2019, is looking to reboot his career after a dismal run in New York.  The Giants fired McAdoo late in the 2017 season, ending a three-plus-year run with the team as offensive coordinator and head coach. The Giants threw him under the bus following the Eli Manning benching debacle and most fans were happy to see him go —...

My favorite Luke Kuechly memory is as delicious as a Thanksgiving Day feast

Brad Loper/Fort Worth Star-Telegram/Tribune News Service via Getty Images

2015 was an unforgettable season and Luke Kuechly gave me a special Thanksgiving moment against Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys.

Like most of the rest of you, I’m still reeling from Luke Kuechly’s shocking retirement. I’m just sad right now. I’m going to miss everything about having Luke being a central part of my weekly football experience. I’m going to miss watching him call out the opposing...

This story shows Luke Kuechly’s crazy dedication to football

Luke Kuechly announced his surprising retirement from the NFL on Tuesday, and the amount of respect he commanded throughout the league was evident. The lifetime Carolina Panthers linebacker received praise from many of his teammates, coaches and colleagues. Kuechly was dedicated to the sport and constantly worked on his craft. This nugget speaks to his dedication. Last season, former Panthers defensive back Captain Munnerlyn shared that Kuechly didn’t have cable at his home the first four...

Report: Panthers expected to trade Cam Newton in March

The Carolina Panthers have an entirely new and exciting coaching staff. Earlier this month, Carolina brought in former Baylor head coach Matt Rhule. He’s since hired LSU passing game coordinator Joe Brady, 30, to become the offensive coordinator. This seemingly set up former NFL MVP Cam Newton for a return to relevance after missing a vast majority of the 2019 campaign with a Lisfranc injury. That’s apparently not the case. According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, the expectation is that...

Following Luke Kuechly retirement, longevity shouldn’t be part of HOF process

Carolina Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly on Tuesday night announced his retirement at age of 28. A seven-time Pro Bowler, Kuechly retired after just eight seasons in the NFL. It was a shock to those who have followed his heralded career. Emotions from those responding to the Boston College product retiring ranged from sadness to see him leave the field to happiness for a healthy post-football life. But it really shouldn’t have been a shock. We’ve seen star players call it quits in the...

Luke Kuechly shocked everyone when he announced his retirement after eight seasons last night. What does that mean for the Panthers’ salary cap in 2020?

The Carolina Panthers are losing one of the best — if not the best — defensive players to ever wear their uniform after middle linebacker Luke Kuechly shocked everyone and announced his retirement last night. We’ve all pretty much dealt with the emotion of such an announcement in our own ways,...

Luke Kuechly retiring was too soon for all of us, but never too soon for him

Luke Kuechly retired last night shocking the football world, but never have we seen a career this short make such an incredible impact on the game.

I could sit here forever trying to write the perfect opening for this article, but it would never ever live up to the man I’m writing about. I thought about comparisons to superheroes with famously subdued alter egos like Superman with Clark Kent, or the Hulk with David Banner, and it just never felt right, or it...

Watching Luke Kuechly play is something I will forever be grateful for

The Panthers defensive pillar for the last eight seasons called it a career on Tuesday. I don’t know how I feel, but I’ll try to share it.

I’m not even sure I can put into words how I feel right now, but I am going to try.

After watching a visibly frustrated Luke Kuechly play for a horrid 2019 Carolina Panthers defense, I looked forward to seeing Luke play for a defense that should have been much improved in 2020.

Instead, I had to read that he had...
