Ranking the AFC West: Outside linebackers

No position group in the division is more talented among the top two starters than outside linebacker. 1. Broncos - Von Miller, Demarcus Ware This was absolutely the toughest position to gauge in this division because arguably the three best pass rushing outside linebackers in the NFL are all in this division. Von Miller is the reigning Super Bowl MVP after his incredible performance in terrorizing Cam Newton. He sacked Newton 2.5 times which came on the heels of his 2.5 sacks on Tom Brady in the AFC Championship game. Ware will be 34 years old by the start of training camp. But even as he...

Early Week One Carolina Panthers Offensive Depth Chart Projection

Here's an early look at the Carolina Panthers' opening day depth chart. Despite a historically deep roster with a great deal of returning continuity, the Panthers depth chart will likely look very different from last season. They must deal with the (good) problem of figuring out what players they will keep and who will get cut. The team will need to let go of legitimate NFL talent to make it to 53 players, and likely will try to stash some of those on the practice squad. Let's take a look at how that could shake down on offense. Quarterback Cam Newton-Starter Backups: Derek Anderson, Joe...

Panthers QB Cam Newton would rank Patriots QB Tom Brady the #1 player in the NFL

Newton was asked who he would rank as the best player in the NFL. Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton was named the #1 player in the NFL by his peers in the 2016 NFL Top 100 rankings, ahead of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. “Well, it’s an unbelievable accolade in itself, that’s getting your peers’ respect,” Newton said on the NFL Network. “For me having so much respect, and me being fans of so many guys in this league, for them to vote me number one means a lot.” Brady finished in 2nd place and remains the only player to rank inside the top four in each list...

If the dab is dead, then what is next?

Panthers QB Cam Newton keeps insisting that the dab is dead. Well that means something to replace it must be forthcoming. Newton first put the dab in its grave in early June during an interview on WFNZ. He then affirmed it at The Kids Choice Sports Awards. He then reaffirmed it again at the ESPY's. He's pretty adamant it is dead. So much so it leads me to think he might already have a replacement in mind. But hold on not so fast. The person who actually suggested the dab to Newton wants to weigh in, Cam's little brother Caylin: Cam Newton keeping replacement for the 'dab' a big secret -...

Why did ESPN snub Cam Newton?

While he did win the ESPY for Best NFL Player they did not broadcast the award so if you are like me you had to search for it the next day. Here's the simplest answer though it hardly justifies the snub: Did ESPN just snub Cam Newton?There were other awards not aired during the ESPN special, of course, but none as high level as "Best NFL Player". Best NFL Player is surely one of the highlights of the evening. The award millions of NFL fans tune in just to see. ESPN spends millions every season just for the opportunity to air a single game every week of the NFL season, and they won’t...

What is the worst seventh round pick the Panthers have made?

It's time for the seventh part of our eight-part series on the worst picks in franchise history. With the 2016 draft now behind us, and after deciding that Cam Newton is the best draft pick in franchise history, I feel it's time to look back and answer one more important question. What is the worst draft pick the Panthers have made? Ok, honestly we're doing this because this time of year is boring and there's nothing else to talk about until training camp starts. At least it's not another D-Will vs. J-Stew debate, right? Over the next few weeks we're going to decide the worst Panthers draft...

Anonymous Scouts on Arizona Cardinals Draft Pick Robert Nkemdiche

What did the anonymous scouts say about the Arizona Cardinals first round pick? One of the best things about the NFL Draft is the "anonymous scouts" and what they have to say about the prospects. It's easy to be an anonymous scout because you don't have to answer for your opinion. No matter how wrong you are, remember the Cam Newton report? For the Arizona Cardinals we'll start with the look at Robert Nkemdiche and what the anonymous scouts had to say about the Arizona Cardinals first pick. Third-year junior from Loganville, Ga. "He's definitely a top-10 talent," one scout said. "But...

I Choose You Cam Newton! Panthers Players as Pokemon

Pokemon Go is taking over the world. So while it is topical, and certainly while it is the off-season, let's be silly for ahwile. Pokemon Go has swept the nation. If you go out to any community park, university, or general area of congregation, you will find players numbering in the dozens, if not hundreds, jovially playing the game. Even stadiums around the country are getting in the spirit, hosting events for small admission fees, many of which are being directly donated to charity. So far, the "PoGo" experience has been positive for all involved outside of a couple minor incidents....

Minnesota Vikings 2016 Schedule Preview: Carolina Panthers

We’re moving right along to Week 3 of the Minnesota Vikings’ 2016 schedule in our series of previews, which means that we’re taking a look at the defending NFC Champions, the Carolina Panthers. They’re led by the league MVP in quarterback Cam Newton and started last season on a 14-game winning streak before ultimately finishing 15-1. Unfortunately for them, that led to a Super Bowl loss to the Denver Broncos in February, but they’re among the favorites to make a return trip to the big game this season. Our friends over at Cat Scratch Reader have put together this preview of the...

Cam Haters take to Twitter to voice displeasure with #1 ranking

I guess they don't realize that NFL players don't give a crap about what non-NFL players think. The NFL players voted on their top 100 and Cam Newton came out on top. I would think that the players themselves might at least have some credibility with the overall NFL fanbase. I guess not looking at the outrage on Twitter over the ranking. Twitter Outraged Cam Newton Tops NFL Top 100No way Cam Newton should be #1 Tom Brady, Russell Wilson and Aaron Rodgers all better than him #NFLTop100. That's a mild comment. Here's one of the more stupid comments: I lost all respect 4 Cam Newton when he...
