Panthers vs Dolphins Final Score: Panthers Offense finally wakes up and wallops the Dolphins 45-21

The Carolina Panthers were firing on all cylinders as they beat the Miami Dolphins on Monday Night Football. The Panthers defense has carried them for weeks, but that changed tonight. After several re-hashings of the same narrative, the Panthers offense woke up tonight. The defense was great as always, but the offense finally capitalized on their opportunities. Takeaways For once, Cam Newton didn’t have to shoulder the bulk of the Panthers’ rushing productivity. Jonathan Stewart finally eclipsed the 100 yard mark with 110 and a 6.5 yards per carry average. Christian McCaffery and...

NFL 2017 Fantasy Football: Week 10 DFS Advice

NFL 2017 Fantasy Football: Week 10 DFS Advice

An in-depth lineup review for daily fantasy sports As usual we’ll begin by examining last weeks lineup for what worked and what didn’t. Last minute changes due to Leonard Fournette’s absence actually led to this being my second best lineup in play Sunday. The other one making a tidy profit so, yay DFS. Anyway, here we go: As we can see, all went well until I once again got bit by the Jonathan Stewart bug. I guess me and Shula have something in common, we both kept going to a well that has obviously run dry. Gurley had a good game replacing Fournette and I even struck on a hunch that...

Panthers 20 Falcons 17: Panthers Player of the game fan poll

Panthers 20 Falcons 17: Panthers Player of the game fan poll

Time to make your selection We have good options on both sides of the ball this week. First up, QB Cam Newton turns to the PoG fan poll. He didn’t exactly light it up passing but he was stellar running the ball. More important, he didn’t turn the ball over. RB Jonathan Stewart cannot say the same. Hence you won’t see Stewart in this post. I honestly don’t know why we saw him at all after his second fumble...but I digress. Actually it was the defense that turned this game around. So we have some of those players as options as well. QB Cam Newton Newton only passed for 137 yards on...

The Scratching Post: Is it time to bench Jonathan Stewart?

The Scratching Post: Is it time to bench Jonathan Stewart?

Has the time come for the Panthers to phase out Jonathan Stewart’s touches on offense? Greetings, internet users. Welcome to The Scratching Post. Here’s some reading material from outside CSR for you to consume. The Panthers – and their quarterback – are playing emotionally, and that matters | Jourdan Rodrigue, Charlotte Observer It’s not just about keeping spirits lifted on the sideline, or in the crowd. Just ask tight end Ed Dickson. “For our quarterback to sacrifice his body like that, for the greater need of the team, I’d do anything for that quarterback,” Dickson...

Panthers vs Falcons Final Score: Rushing Attack Roars as Panthers win 20-17

The Panthers got back to Panthers football as they beat the Atlanta Falcons. In typical ugly, defensive football fashion, the Panthers won their second consecutive NFC South divisional game. They had several opportunities to lose this one, but managed to pull it out. A win is a win, and the Panthers are 6-3. Takeaways After Jonathan Stewart fumbled away two scoring opportunities, the Panthers’ rushing attack got grounded and returned to form. They ran for over 200 yards, 86 of which came from Newton. They gave more opportunities to Christian McCaffery, who averaged 4.4 yards per carry...

Panthers vs Falcons: 2nd half open game thread

The Panthers lead the Falcons 14-10 at the half. The Panthers lead the Falcons 14-10 at the half. The first part of this game looked like a disaster in the making after Jonathan Stewart fumbled twice to give the Falcons plenty of opportunities to blow this game wide open. Thankfully, the defense stepped up huge and prevented them from doing so. The offense finally woke up late in the first half and scored two unanswered touchdowns to take the lead 14-10 going into the half. The Panthers will receive the ball to start the second half half, so hopefully they can keep the momentum going...

What is ailing the Carolina Panthers ground game

What is ailing the Carolina Panthers ground game

One of the league’s great rushing attacks has become a shadow of itself. It was not all that long ago that the Carolina Panthers had DeAngelo Williams, Jonathan Stewart, and even Mike Tolbert at running back. They could—and did—run all over other teams, and that helped to make them one of the NFL’s most fearsome rushing attacks for years. In 2017, however, the Panthers have an unbelievably anemic attack on the ground. Cam Newton has more rushing touchdowns (3) than the rest of the team’s backs combined, is averaging a higher yards per carry (4.3) than any other back (nobody else...

Panthers Film Room: Examining the offensive run game issues

Panthers Film Room: Examining the offensive run game issues

There are a plethora of reasons to why Carolina is struggling to run the football. It’s easy to simply point the finger at Mike Shula, the offensive line, and the running backs. The truth is those three factors are part of the issue, but there’s more to it. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to conclude that the Panthers rushing attack is one of the worst in the league. The combination of Jonathan Stewart and Christian McCaffrey are currently averaging a lousy 2.84 yards per attempt. The run game has been below average for a number of weeks. It’s officially a concern. The Panthers...

Carolina Panthers Film Analysis: Taking a look at 6-OL formations

Carolina Panthers Film Analysis: Taking a look at 6-OL formations

The Panthers unveiled a new 6-OL formation last Sunday against the Bears. How effective was it, and will we see more of it moving forward? The Carolina Panthers currently have one of the worst run games in the entire NFL. Despite ranking tenth in the league in rush attempts, they are only averaging 3.4 yards per carry, which is the fourth-worst average in the league. When you take out Cam Newton’s designed quarterback runs, the average drops even further to just 2.83 yards per carry. A big reason why the Panthers are having significant issues running the ball is because they lack a deep...

Bears 17 Panthers 3: Panthers Player of the Game fan poll

Be sure to cast your vote. We did have a few performances worthy of consideration. It’s not as many as most weeks though, with only one entry two entries from the offense. Here’s this week’s candidates. RT Daryl Williams It’s two weeks in a row that PFF has given the young right tackle the team’s top grade for the game. Dilly dilly! RB Jonathan Stewart Stewart put up an eye popping 48 yards on 14 carries for a 3.4 ypc average. If you’re thinking ‘What’s so special about that?’ then just remember it is a yuge improvement from last week’s 8 for -4 yards (-.5 ypc)...
