Panthers Offense Looks to Get Back on Track Against Struggling Redskins Defense

Panthers Offense Looks to Get Back on Track Against Struggling Redskins Defense

Carolina's offense hasn't been as bad as people have made it out to be. Currently, the Panthers are ranked #13 in scoring with 23.9 points per game. Prior to the Seattle game, the Panthers were ranked much higher. Nevertheless, the Panthers offense has been anything but consistent. Last week against the Chargers, Carolina failed to capitalize on great field position and found themselves relying on the leg of Graham Gano.

Early 2016 Position Strengths for the Carolina Panthers

Early 2016 Position Strengths for the Carolina Panthers

I realize this is a smidgen early. No, it's way way early. Panthers GM Dave Gettleman is known for playing chess and in doing so, he is thinking years down the road. I want to look position by position, tying things up at the end for 2016. Here goes for each position group's year-long outlook:

Remember that Mammoth Receiver Kelvin Benjamin? He'sss Back!!!

There couldn't have been a better set of circumstances surrounding Kelvin Benjamin's injury last season. Carolina's success shaded the sophomore receiver's rehabilitation. Instead of fielding an endless set of questions concerning the impact of his loss, the progress of his rehabilitation, or the expectations concerning his return, we celebrated a historic season of success. Benjamin focused on his recovery.  

Today, however, Benjamin returned to the field and we get to muse over just how good Carolina, Cam Newton, and Kelvin Benjamin can be! It's like finding a $20 bill in the dryer. So, I gotta ask....can Cam get 45....maybe even 50 passing TDs?

Does a healthy Kelvin Benjamin Mean Cam Newton Throws for 45+ TDs?
Hell MVP Yes
45 in the air is a lot

Kelvin Benjamin Looking Fit and Focused Rehabbing Knee Injury

Kelvin Benjamin Looking Fit and Focused Rehabbing Knee Injury

The Panthers success has shaded Kelvin Benjamin's rehab of his torn ACL suffered in training camp. The cameras occasionally focused on KB on the sidelines during games throughout the season, but the team's success rarely called for the camera men to search for stories of interest off the field.  Last week, however, Joe Person reported that KB had returned to practice and had been running for the past five months.

Will Luke Kuechly Break Carolina's Salary Cap?

Will Luke Kuechly Break Carolina's Salary Cap?

One of the first things I heard Carolina Panthers General Manager David Gettleman say, not long after he was hired, was about his long-term strategy of player management.

He said basically that you hate to draft a kid who turns out great and not be able to keep him over money

Which Wide Receivers will Make the Final Roster

Which Wide Receivers will Make the Final Roster

The punchline for the Panthers over the last few years has been their lack of receiving talent, with possibly the biggest joke being last years group. This year should dispel all critics; it seems the Panthers will trot out a formidable group of receiving talent. However, behind the twin towers in Kelvin Benjamin and Devin Funchess, the remaining wideouts form a muddled yet talented group. The Panthers kept 5 receivers on their 53 man roster last year, this year I can see them keeping 5-7. Here is my prediction on who will make up this group.

Looking Ahead: Expectations of the 2014 Draft Class

Looking  Ahead: Expectations of the 2014 Draft Class

Nothing gets me more excited then the NFL Draft and everything leading up to it. Whether it be the prospect of big time playmakers on the board or exciting backyard players ready to make an impact on their hometown teams, the draft is a great event. In the months leading up to the draft, expectations and predictions run wild for most people. It seems that every pick, even seventh rounders, can be pro bowl players as long as they are drafted by your favorite team. Can that sixth round receiver who never topped a 1000 yards in college really be expected to perennially post outstanding numbers at the next level?

The rookie has struggled late in the season.  He's had numerous drops and simply not been a large factor in the offense.  If Carolina is to win Saturday, Benjamin will need to show up.

A Shot at Redemption

The C3 podcast last night featured an phone interview with renowned Panthers writer and Black and Blue Review founder, Bill Voth. During the interview, Voth mentioned Panthers rookie receiver Kelvin Benjamin was not sharing in the revelry and merry making following the teamโ€™s big win in Atlanta on Sunday. Benjamin was down on himself because of his dropped passes, one of which may have been good for a long score. This is not an isolated incident. Benjamin has had issues with drops throughout this season. The rap on him coming out of Florida State was just that; prone to drop easy catches. This is what we are seeing now.
