  1. This is a revenge game, call it extra motivation to lighten it up. However, this is "The Greatest Panther"s(top3 arguably) former team his last two years he put in work with those guys. And after last year they played him said he was finsished I remember reading this article and found it. https://www.totalpackers.com/2017/03/packers-also-ignored-julius-peppers/ I believe he's gonna be fired all the way up we know what's at stake this is a veteran team who went to the big one two years ago but as far as a little bit of intel a whole lot of aggressive anger towards the team that didn't even think you could play now your headed to Hawaii(if it's there). Julius and this Dline is coming and we blitz all dam game nowadays he's gonna wanna show Mike and staff you should of put a offer out there I'm worth it. That was a slap in the face especially with his current year no offers. I believe somebody gonna pay for that either Huntley or Rodgers will see.
  2. This year’s Panthers defense is more dangerous than the 2015 unit that went to Super Bowl 50. The secondary is better, and first-year coordinator Steve Wilks runs a blitz-intensive scheme. This is a radical change from ex-DC Sean McDermott, a shrewd but judicious blitz-caller. Most teams that blitz a lot need matchup corners. The Panthers, however, are so fast at linebacker that they can afford to consistently blitz out of zone. Instead of four underneath defenders protecting their single-high coverage, there are only three. But the three are Luke Kuechly, Thomas Davis and Shaq Thompson. It might as well be four. Expect more blitzing this Sunday; the Panthers will see it as a way to defend Minnesota’s ground game and force Case Keenum to dink-and-dunk like he did last week against a Falcons defense that held the Vikings to 14 points. https://www.si.com/nfl/2017/12/08/week-14-panthers-defense-philip-rivers-gerald-everett-jameis-winston-cowboys-run-game-giants
  3. The Panthers offense came out after halftime trailing the Saints 14 - 21. On 3rd down and 4* I believe it was, the Defense jumped into the Neutral zone, causing a reaction from the Panthers Offensive line, but there was no call. That is the very definition of a Neutral Zone Infraction. Then, THE EXACT same thing happened for the Panthers defense; almost on the same part of the field as well. Yet, the refs instantly threw multiple flags and awarded the Saints 5 yards and a replay of down. One of the worst missed calls that I have ever seen. Literally a mirror image if you watch both plays, but one is called, one is not. Granted, we wouldn't have won the game on this call because we played very Poorly in all phases of the game today, but it killed our opening drive and gave the Saints even more momentum coming out of half time. Can anybody find the .gif's of these 2 plays and post them here? Because I lost all composure after that one.
  4. Nice to see something positive in relation to Butler. Will update if he posts more.
  5. T Matt Kalil, 36.3 overall grade Kalil struggled to block Bears edge defender Pernell McPhee and Co., as the former Minnesota Viking surrendered 7 total pressures including a sack and a hit. He also struggled in run blocking, as Panthers’ rushers gained just 14 yards on 7 carries when running left.
  6. This is ESPN.com's top headline right now.
  7. Man its a great day to be a panther. Couple quick things that I saw that impressed. 1. Offensive Communication- Specifically on the oline. Larsen is learning quickly and it seemed as if Cam made it a point to help a little when the Pats showed pressure. Trai seemed to be communicating too. All this leads to Kalil knowing where to be as well. So thats a positive. 2. Receivers and Backs- We are starting to get seperation. Funchess had the best game of his career and gave a middle finger to you doubters on this board and I love it. He has been playing very well for us this year and I think he took a big step forward today. Dickson filled in his roll nicely. Mccaffrey, Mccaffrey'd. Minus the fumble stew ran well overall great show by our skill players on O. 3. SHULA calls a great game? He put us in positions to win. Gave Cam outlets on the plays we were looking to push the ball down the field. Would like to see him be a bit more aggressive with a lead, and that goes for ron, wilks and the defense too. But that has typically been what we do, unfortunately. 4. RECORDS SET, and a win AGAINST THE PATS! J-stew surpasses DWILL for all-time franchise rushing leader. Cam surpasses Delhomme for all-time leaders in wins for a panthers Qb and we beat the pats. Man what a day! 5- Cam is back! There was some negatives and those will be addressed. But we all should be proud of this ball team today! For those of you that counted us out. Just dont bother posting anymore, you should be banned to strictly lurking for a 12 month sentence. GO PANTHERS!

  10. Top 5 Grades: G Andrew Norwell, 85.1 overall grade G Trai Turner, 84.0 overall grade LB Luke Kuechly, 80.4 overall grade C Tyler Larsen, 80.0 overall grade HB Christian McCaffrey, 79.1 overall grade Performances of Note: QB Cam Newton, 40.9 overall grade It was a tough day for quarterback Cam Newton as he ended with 167 yards passing and three interceptions. One of those interceptions was deflected off HB Christian McCaffrey, the other two will fall on Newtons shoulders. All three of his interceptions came while under no pressure, as he finished 13 of 21 averaging 4.8 yards per attempt when the pocket was clean. Newton will look to bounce back next week against a tough opponent in the Patriots.
  11. Carolina Panthers C Ryan Kalil may miss Week 3 with a neck injury, according to head coach Ron Rivera. After missing the Panthers’ Week 2 game against the Buffalo Bills, Kalil has sat out both Wednesday and Thursday practices this week. Kalil had a very solid showing in Week 1, earning a grade of 76.3 which currently ranks fifth best among centers. Kalil is a stronger run blocker than pass blocker, having earned the seventh best run blocking grade among centers (75.6). The Panthers would not be in bad hands if Kalil is unable to play this week. Backup C Tyler Larsen, who has filled in for Kalil, has a pass-blocking grade of 80.2, second highest among centers. He has not allowed a single pressure on 41 pass blocking snaps.
  12. Top 5 Grades: LB Thomas Davis, 91.6 overall grade CB James Bradberry, 88.1 overall grade WR Kelvin Benjamin, 82.1 overall grade DI Kawann Short, 81.4 overall grade EDGE Julius Peppers, 80.3 overall grade Performances of Note: WR Kelvin Benjamin, 82.1 overall grade Benjamin had a solid outing against the Bills as he was QB Cam Newton’s most reliable target. The wide receiver hauled in all six of his catchable targets, including three passes that traveled more than 10 yards in the air
  13. Vikings just released FS Antone Exum. He played in 12 games for them last year and 15 games the year prior. Hurney has been very active this month trying to strengthen our depth with young players and we could still use more depth at safety. Would make sense
  14. Benoit: Christian McCaffrey was the featured point, Gary, for Carolina. He was the guy the offense ran through. Gramling: That Jonathan Stewart touchdown catch, that was a neat little play they drew up there. Benoit: Stewart and McCaffrey in the backfield together, they had some good backfield passing designs. So we’ve talked a lot about Carolina’s offense this year. And I think our listeners know I’m skeptical that what they’re trying to do can work, at least what I was expecting they were trying to do, which is use McCaffrey kind of as their Julian Edelman/Darren Sproles type of guy, have that kind of offense, get those easy underneath completions for Cam. What’s made me skeptical is that Newton is a power thrower, he’s not a precision/accuracy/timing type of thrower, two very different things. And we saw that in the first half, by the way. Newton was rusty, until the two-minute drive at the end of the first half, and then he got going and warmed up. But you saw the inconsistencies in accuracy. The difference though, Gary, is a lot of that are playing this way, with the shifty underneath guys and the inverted formations, they spread out and do it. Carolina did not spread out. They stayed in condensed formations. The wide receivers were just a few yards outside the offensive tackles, they often had two guys in the backfield, it was McCaffrey and Ed Dickson or McCaffrey with Stewart, someone moving around, an off-set guy. They were very diverse schematically. And it did a few things. For one, it sets up all the moving pieces in their run game. They feature pull blockers and misdirection elements. They try to get you moving in the wrong direction defensively in the running game. When you put a lot more bodies in the middle of the field you can do more things in that regard. So I was a little bit impressed with how they’re doing it, and it’s something I hadn’t considered, it O.K., they’re going to be a shifty, underneath controlled passing game at times, but maybe they’re not doing out of spread formations. They’re going to try to do it out of some of the running formations that we’ve seen from them before. We’ll see if it works. It worked today, it’s a long season though. We’re watching this, and their opponents are watching it too. But so far off to an intriguing start. Let’s call it an intriguing start for Carolina’s offense.
  15. IMPRESSED + Jonathan Stewart - stat line is less than impressive but he wore down the 49ers defense late and picked up some valuable 1st downs. + Michael Palardy - 51.7 average on 3 punts with a long of 58. We absolutely made the right decision to go with this young punter. + Russell Shepard - After not doing anything in pre-season, looked like a playmaker and a very solid slot WR option for us. + Kawann Short - Absolutely destroyed the interior of the 9ers O-line and provided consistent pressure up the middle. DEPRESSED + Cam - It was expected Cam would be rusty but he looked awful in the 1st half. Give him credit for finishing 6/6 in the 2nd half. + Run defense in the 1st quarter - Hyde started 4/40 yards before Panthers D made their adjustments.

  18. Panthers vs. Titans Game Observations 1st quarter: Panthers offense only ran 5 plays in the first 13 minutes. Funchess fumble. Missed block by LT Matt Kalil on Titans OLB gets Stewart stuffed for TFL. McCaffrey overthrown out of bounds. McCaffrey catches for no gain. Anderson's interception was caused by LB dropping off covering Dickson to double Olsen on a dual drag route by both TE's. That LB tipped the ball. Had Anderson checked it down to Dickson he would have gotten a 1st down because he was wide open 6 yards from the LOS. Panthers defense played with alot of effort but Titans offensive line played with alot of execution. They doubled teamed the DT playside and slide off to our LB. Our defensive ends were so quick to rush up field that they opened up the lanes for off tackle runs. Gap integrity was greatly compromised. Poor open field tackling haunted the team for the entire 1st half. 2nd quarter: Panthers offensive line shows balance of solid pass and run blocking on a 8 play 75 yard drive. RB McCaffrey benefited on both of his running plays with the 2nd one being a TD. Fatigue set in on the defense as Titans QB Cassel was able to throw for chunk yardage on the secondary, and poor gap control along with more missed tackles opened up huge run gains for Titans RB's. Another solid blocking session by the offensive line allowed for Anderson to lead a drive that to a 46 yard field goal by Harrison Butker. 1st half summary: Take away the Panthers turnovers and blocking miscues then this is a totally different half. Tennessee did not do anything exotic or tricky. They simply executed better and taking advantage of two short field drives. Our 100% effort given was overwhelmed by their 100% execution. Perfect example of showing you need more than a fiery passion. 3rd quarter: The 2nd half began like you would hope for with an opening quarter drive on your 1st possession for a TD. QB Webb showed his pocket awareness with impressive escape moves for either good run yardage or pass completions. RB's Whittaker and Artis-Payne picked up good yardage on the ground while WR's Bersin and Shepard got most of the passing yards. Although Shepard's came from getting a pass interference call on a deep ball in the end zone which moved the ball 30 yards to the 1 for a Artis-Payne TD run 2 plays later. The Titans opening drive of the 3rd quarter simply overwhelmed Panthers backups. No getting off the blocks by linemen. Bad angles by the linebackers. Fortunately Titans penalties stalled their momentum for a field goal. It was encouraging to see the backup offense respond with another TD with 4 plays for 75 yards. A huge run by Artis-Payne down the right side of the field was followed up by a nifty TD pass by FB Armah who provided a huge block on the long run by Artis-Payne the play before. 4th quarter & Summary: The 2nd and 3rd units battled hard to tie the game at 27 to give the Panthers a chance to win the game late. But a sack & fumble on QB Gilbert for the 3rd turnover of the day sealed the win for the Titans as they scored a TD to go up by 34-27 with a couple of minutes left. The last chance stalled on a 4th & 10 from the Titans 30 yard line. Overall we saw that the Panthers are their own worst enemy when they do not take care of the ball and when they do not execute the fundamentals of blocking and tackling. All it takes is one player out of 11 not doing their job to destroy a play on any of the 3 phases of offense defense or special teams. WR Byrd was only targeted once the entire game. He also needs to be smart about when to take a knee and when to return the ball on kickoffs. McCaffrey is the real deal but needs to be used smartly as far as reps. He touched the ball 5 times for 75 total yards rushing and receiving. OT Moton had a hell of a day blocking as he played at all positions on the offensive line except center. Moves the pile and walls off pass rushers effectively. C Tyler Larsen showed he is very capable to replace All Pro C Ryan Kalil and not miss a beat. DE Hall just needs to learn discipline better and he will be an emerging player in the near future. LB Mayo was a man possessed. He is clearly ready to fill in if needed for Kuechly and has earned a few reps as well. FB Armah is showing that he can adjust to playing fullback. K Harrison Butker had a strong day with booming kickoffs and making both field goal attempts. It was great seeing the team battle back from self inflicting wounds in the 1st quarter to put themselves in position to win on the road. But the margin for error is small. Missed opportunities by starters to make drive stopping plays on defense must be corrected in spite of defending a short field. Effort can only get you sweaty. Execution gets you results. This game was needed to reel in the focus of the team. No need to panic but points of concern are valid. The 3rd preseason game @ Jacksonville on Thursday will reveal a lot more. The coaching staff will actually game plan the starters as if this was a regular season game. Stay calm. Stay observant. Keep Pounding!
  19. The Carolina Panthers offensive line depth chart has become a little more clear now that the OTA practices have come to an end and the Panthers Mini-Camp is set to begin. Here is how the depth chart is shaking out according to my eyes and notes... Left Tackle Michael Oher - Biggest question mark on the entire team. Jonathan Martin - Looking to revitalize his career Martin Wallace - Has earned a few second string reps David Foucault - On the bubble Right Tackle Mike Remmers - Has also spent limited reps at second string center) Daryl Williams (R) - Getting plenty of one on one coaching Nate Chandler - Chandler hasn't practiced, recovering from injury, slight speculation here. Left Guard Andrew Norwell - Future pro bowler? Amini Silatolu - Last year's starter Tyronne Green - 5th year journeyman our of Auburn, injury issues. Right Guard Trai Turner - Road grading guard Chris Scott - Appears to be in good shape, can also backup tackle position Jordan McCray - Tryout player looking for a chance Center Ryan Kalil - Leader of the offense. Brian Folkerts - Solid backup, used as TE on some rhino packages Ronald Patrick - South Carolina kid looking for a NFL home. Taking a quick glance of this lineup, it is easy even for the most casual fans to see a tremendous upgrade over the offensive line from this time last season. Three of the five starting offensive line positions have been upgraded tremendously (Remmers, Turner, Norwell) and the jury is still out on one position (Oher). The quality of depth found is also much improved with former starters moving back to backup positions where they probably should have been to begin with.
