The Scratching Post: The Panthers need to improve their rushing attack before heading to Chicago

Cam Newton being the primary running back is not a good way to run the offense. Greetings, internet users. Welcome to The Scratching Post. Here’s some reading material from outside CSR for you to consume. Weekend Notebook: Too Much Newton? | Jared Allen, Panthers.com Carolina's coaches would rather Newton not lead the team in rushing, but against the Eagles, it was the only part of the running game that worked. While running backs Jonathan Stewart, Christian McCaffrey and Fozzy Whitaker managed to combine for just one yard on 13 attempts, Newton rushed for 71 yards on 11 carries....

Panthers hope to get back on the winning track with a trip to Chicago

The Panthers look to rebound from a 28-23 loss to the Eagles last Thursday night. The Panthers are back on the road in this week’s matchup with the Chicago Bears, but they’ve had a few extra days rest after their Thursday night loss against the Eagles in Week 6. Hopefully those few days will benefit the Panthers and help them pick up the pieces after their prime time loss last week. The Panthers are struggling on offense right now because they can’t run the dang ball. Cam Newton was the team’s primary running back last Thursday night, and if they want to have success this Sunday...

Carolina Panthers Film Analysis: Breaking down Cam Newton’s three interceptions against the Philadelphia Eagles

Carolina Panthers Film Analysis: Breaking down Cam Newton’s three interceptions against the Philadelphia Eagles

What went wrong and who is to blame? It’s tough to win games in the NFL when you lose the turnover battle. On Thursday night’s loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, the Panthers offense had three turnovers, while the Panthers defense could only force one. All three of the Panthers turnovers were interceptions thrown by Cam Newton, although only one might have been his fault. Let’s take a quick look: The first interception came in the second quarter on a 3rd and 5 from the Panthers own 14 yard line. The Panthers are in 11 personnel (1 RB, 1 TE, 3 WR) and run a mirrored...

The Falcons lost and regained first place in the NFC South without playing a game

The Falcons lost and regained first place in the NFC South without playing a game

The bye week can be fun like that. When the Falcons dropped their last game to the Buffalo Bills, they were still comfortably in first place in the NFC South. In the nearly two full weeks since then, they have lost their hold on the divisional lead and, as of late last night, regained it again. That is entirely thanks to the Panthers, a dangerous team weirdly incapable of looking dominant for more than a short stretch here and there. With a tight but impressive road win over the Detroit Lions in which Cam Newton threw for over 300 yards, they moved to 4-1 and first place in the division,...

Panthers fight hard, but are grounded by Eagles

Panthers fight hard, but are grounded by Eagles

The Panthers couldn’t quite pull out the win under the Thursday night lights, but while no loss is a good loss, you can feel good that your team is 4-2 at this point. Losing sucks. But there is a huge difference between a loss and getting run off the field. The Panthers belonged in that game against a big NFC contender, and they clawed until they ran out of time despite a lot of adversity heaped their way. Coming into this game, the Carolina Panthers have been flying high on the wings of Cam Newton’s surgically repaired shoulder, but, ultimately, big cats prefer to work more on the...

Panthers vs Eagles Final Score: Panthers can’t seal the deal, lose 28-23

Panthers vs Eagles Final Score: Panthers can’t seal the deal, lose 28-23

The Carolina Panthers had opportunities, but couldn’t capitalize on offense and lost their second game of the season. The Panthers played a top tier defense on Thursday, and couldn’t keep their momentum going. They played a close game but couldn’t come out on top and ended up losing their second game of the season. Takeaways The rushing aspect of the game was bad on both fronts. The Eagles ran for over 100 yards, where everyone not named Cam Newton rushed for less than 10 for the Panters. A team that prides itself on the rushing piece needs to do better. Cam played a decent game, but...

Panthers vs Eagles: 2nd half open game thread

The Panthers and the Eagles are tied 10-10 at the half. The Panthers and the Eagles are tied 10-10 at the half. So far it’s been a pretty good game, as both sides have made some quality plays. The Panthers need to find a way to run the ball and they need to protect Cam Newton. Otherwise, there’s not much to complain about. Except for not going for the field goal at the end of the half. That was pretty dumb. Use this space to talk about the 2nd half as the action unfolds. You know the drill. This is now an open thread!

Thursday Night Football Live: Eagles vs. Panthers

Thursday Night Football Live: Eagles vs. Panthers

It’s TNF time in Charlotte. Hey, look! It’s two 4-1 teams going against each other on Thursday Night Football! Surely the fact that both of these teams are on a short week won’t impact the quality of play of these two behemoths, right? RIGHT? Tonight’s game will feature Panthers QB Cam Newton coming off of his best performance so far this year in the win over Detroit, in which Newton threw 26-33 for 355 yards, 3 touchdowns, and zero interceptions. This surge in efficiency from the Panthers’ offense is scary, considering that the defense is still as loaded as ever with Luke...

NFL Fantasy Football 2017: Week 6 TNF Start/Sit Advice

Which match ups can you exploit for Thursday night? The Panthers make a rare appearance in prime time against a foe with a similar record but questionable strength of schedule. The Eagles are certainly talented but they’ll have their hands full with Carolina’s defense and a resurgent Cam Newton. These are some of the best starts for your early week game points. Start Quarterback Cam Newton Cam is on a streak of his best performances since the 2015 MVP season. With three hundred yards in each of the last two games and TDs for everyone, Newton is on fire. Wide Receiver Devin Funchess The...
