Cam Newton Has Redefined NFL Success

Cam Newton Has Redefined NFL Success

As 2015 marches on towards Thanksgiving, even the most optimistic fans of the Carolina Panthers couldn't have predicted being undefeated after playing at home against Green Bay. Perennially-ignored Carolina has had long been relegated to an NFL afterthought following their playoff loss in February at Seattle (since avenged),  then defeating the OTHER team in last year's NFC Championship game in back-to-back weeks.

Now that the Carolina Panthers ARE the 800 pound gorilla in the room that can no longer be ignored, expectations have skyrocketed and the scrutiny intensified. Even now, it seems like the Bengals and Patriots are getting more talk than Carolina after the initial surge in talk has died down a little after the victory over the Packers.

2015 Fantasy Football: Russell Wilson or Cam Newton?

2015 Fantasy Football: Russell Wilson or Cam Newton?

When you think about “elite” fantasy quarterbacks Andrew Luck and Aaron Rodgers come to mind. But you most likely won't have the opportunity to draft one of those players. When you get to that point in your fantasy football draft where you need to draft a quarterback, who will you take?

Most fantasy football owners don't even have Cam Newton or Russell Wilson on the top of their wish list. But they should because the fantasy football experts think that Newton, and Wilson are both top ten worthy quarterbacks. But are they really worthy of their ranking?

Panther's Roster Comparison: 2012-13 Baltimore Ravens

Panther's Roster Comparison: 2012-13 Baltimore Ravens

I share the opinion that the current Carolina Panthers roster is close to being very very good. I also believe it can be one that could possibly make a deep playoff run as soon as this year. I’ve chosen to compare our current roster to the one the Baltimore Ravens trotted out on the field for Super Bowl XLVII. Though comparing current rosters to ones of the past isn’t a fair judgement, it should give us a view into how talented our current team is.

Did The Panthers Finally Get It Right By Paying Cam?

Did The Panthers Finally Get It Right By Paying Cam?

The Carolina Panthers have made some mistakes in the past with big money contracts. They have a bad track record of grossly overpaying players and those players not living up to their expectations. Some players that come to mind more recently are DeAngelo Williams, Jonathan Stewart, Julius Peppers (franchise Tag), and Jake Delhomme.

Attention NFL Franchises: Hold On To Your Red Flags

Attention NFL Franchises: Hold On To Your Red Flags

NFL Head Coaches are limited to only two challenges per game, and receive a third if the first two challenges were successful. Because of the lack of challenges allowed per game they are hesitant when they should throw the flag. The front offices should be the same way when players have character issues. A red flag is usually thrown when a prospect does something questionable that could relate to academics, substance abuse, criminal activity, violations, and personal issues. But maybe they shouldn't be so quick to judge these NFL prospects. What if they were falsely accused? Are there really any character concerns?

Fan Poll: The Greatest Quarterback in Carolina Panthers History

Fan Poll: The Greatest Quarterback in Carolina Panthers History

Before going right into this debate I want to tell you why I decided to write about this topic. The starting quarterback for every NFL team is always being graded for their performance on and off the field. They are either criticized or praised depending on their play and lifestyle. Recently a kid from Virginia wrote an article stating that Cam Newton would be better if he was a running back. He wrote, “The team never seems to win and I think he is the reason. He gets intercepted a lot.” Where do you think he learned this from? His Dad? The Media? The Fans?

Some Carolina Panthers fans still have a bad taste in their mouth from when Andrew Luck decided to go back to Stanford for another year. Andrew Luck most likely was going to be the Panthers number one pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. Instead of drafting Luck, the Panthers selected Cam Newton with the number one pick in that draft.

One of the best offensive weapons that the Panthers could get in the offseason is Randall Cobb. Cobb is the 2nd string wide receiver for the Green Bay Packers, and is heading for unrestricted free agency. Randall Cobb had a great 2014 season with 91 receptions for 1,287 yards, and 12 touchdowns.
