I just wanted to mention how much better the NFCS blog at ESPN has been since they broke it up with individual writers assigned to teams.  David Newton has been a HUGE upgrade over Pat Y.  I like how he has been getting more in depth with his observations and comments, writing more about specific players and nuances of our game rather than Pat Y's usual basic "Panthers suck because they've had 3 losing seasons in a row" drivel.  The only thing I can think of off the top of my head that Pat is more often than not positive about is Cam.  Newton usually seems more unbiased (but with a positive tone) which is what I like to see.

I stopped reading Yas a while, and I'm pleasenty surprised with our ESPN beat writer.

Just like the Panthers, ESPN needed to bring in a Newton to improve. Pat = Pickles

Funny how the ESPN NASCAR guy (Newton) does a better job than our beat writer (Person)

Completely agree. He's provided excellent coverage. Reminds me of the days of Steve Reed and DGantt.

But Yas is a genius. He predicted Brandon Beane would be our GM!

If you feel like you need a good cry today, imagine what our team would currently look like if Beane HAD become our GM.  Imagine what our cap situation would be looking like, imagine who we might have taken with our first pick of the draft (Teo?).  I'm running the warm bath and sharpening my razors just thinking about it.

I like the fact in can open the Panthers blog posts instead of having to scroll past all the news of those other dick licker teams in the NFC South.

This is one of the best things ESPN has done in a while

Too bad ESPN paired it with the murdering of their fan posting (converting to Facebook).
