Panthers at Titans Final Score: Second and Third teams shine, but Panthers fall 34-27

Panthers at Titans Final Score: Second and Third teams shine, but Panthers fall 34-27

The Carolina Panthers played their second preseason game with mixed results. Takeaways Christin McCaffery is a savage. He logged 3 carries for 33 yards and a TD, with 2 receptions for 39 yards. The hype is real, this kid is good. Julius Peppers forced some rushed passes several times while lining up against Jack Conklin, a Pro Bowl tackle. The first team struggled a great deal this week. The Titans went up 17-0 in the first quarter against the first teams. Not a huge deal since the play book is hand cuffed and guys like Luke Kuechly didn’t play, but the timing issues were...

Panthers issue first depth chart of 2017

Panthers issue first depth chart of 2017

There’s a couple surprises in the first release From Panthers.com: Offense Hat tip to C Tyler Lawson on the promotion to 2nd string. He’s deserved it. I also see WR Damiere Byrd has not overtaken Brensin Bersin yet. That seems like just a matter of time regardless of whether Bersin gets back on the field soon. Defense I’m more than a little surprised to see DE Julius Peppers lined up behind Charles Johnson instead of the starter on the other side. Instead it’s Mario Addison listed as the starter. I’m not saying I disagree, just that it raised my...

Mocking the Depth: Week 1 Panthers Defense

Mocking the Depth: Week 1 Panthers Defense

Here’s a look at the Carolina Panthers defense and where the current depth chart stands. I will be bringing you a weekly look at the offense and defensive depth chart as the preseason progresses, to monitor injuries and where guys stand. Offense Chart #1 Defensive End Starters: Charles Johnson, Mario Addison Depth: Julius Peppers, Wes Horton, Daeshon Hall Cuts: Bryan Cox, Zach Moore, Arthur Miley, Larry Webster Not really much to see here. Julius Peppers will probably be more of a “co-starter” alongside Johnson and Addison, while Horton and Hall will rotate in. There’s a chance...

Panthers DT Vernon Butler thinks he can keep blocking FGs

Panthers DT Vernon Butler thinks he can keep blocking FGs

The Panthers could lead the league in blocked kicks in 2017 With the return of prolific kick blocker Julius Peppers the Panthers could really put pressure on kickers this season. Peppers has thirteen career blocks to his name, nine of those coming in a Panther uni. As a rookie DT Vernon Butler tied the league lead with 2 in 2016. His big paws came close to a couple more. The big kid could well lead the league in blocks in 2017. Who can forget this one? That penalty sucked! One rookie makes a big play and another nullifies it. So went our 2016 season. But I digress... A blocked kick here...

Panthers Season Opener Countdown: 46 days to go

With a month and a half to go let’s look at TE Eric Wallace Eric Wallace is a multi-sport, international athlete that Carolina has shuffled in and out of the roster since last July. While not likely to be a breakout player in any capacity, he provides solid depth for a blocking TE and rotation. Bio Height: 6’ 6” Weight: 260 lbs Age: 28 Experience: 1 year College: Seattle Career Eric Wallace is huge. Standing one inch taller than Cam and at least ten pounds heavier he takes up a lot of space. Like the team mate Julius Peppers, Wallace was a basketball star in college who switched...
