PFF predicts two Panthers pro bowlers: Luke Kuechly and one very pleasant surprise

PFF predicts two Panthers pro bowlers: Luke Kuechly and one very pleasant surprise

One young Panther has elevated his game in 2017 Last week PFF issued a Pro Bowl Cheat Sheet and two Carolina Panthers made the cut. The first, unsurprisingly, was Luke Kuechly. We all know why. No need to explain here. It’s the second potential Pro Bowler we as Panthers fans should be thrilled about: right tackle Daryl Williams. Here is what PFF had to say about the 2015 fourth round pick: There would be a lot more people talking about Daryl Williams’ breakout season if he played at a skill position as he has not allowed a single sack over the last six games. PFF has Williams in the...

Panthers vs Vikings game day inactives: Shaq Thompson out for Carolina, Mike Remmers out for Minnesota

Panthers vs Vikings game day inactives: Shaq Thompson out for Carolina, Mike Remmers out for Minnesota

The Panthers will be without one of their starting linebackers when they face off against the Vikings this afternoon. The Panthers will be without on of their three starting linebackers today against the Vikings as Shaq Thompson has been ruled out with a foot injury. Thompson missed practice every day this week and was officially ruled out on Friday, so his inclusion on the inactive list isn’t a surprise. Captain Munnerlyn will see more snaps due to Thompson’s absence, and David Mayo will slide into the Thompson’s spot in the linebacker corps alongside Luke Kuechly and Thomas...

Panthers at Saints Final Score: Panthers struggle on all levels, drop their 4th loss 31-21.

Panthers at Saints Final Score: Panthers struggle on all levels, drop their 4th loss 31-21.

The Carolina Panthers suffered another beating by the New Orleans Saints. The Panthers lost a game they could have won. But that’s too often been the story with the 2017 Panthers; missed opportunities. The Saints came out and made less mistakes and more big plays, bottom line. The Panthers still have some control of their fate for the playoffs but this loss puts them into the wild card race, in a crowded one at that. Takeaways Luke Kuechly continues to be a god at linebacker. Most of their linebackers struggled today but when Kuechly got his hands on the running back, they went down....

Luke Kuechly named NFC Defensive Player of the Week

Luke Kuechly named NFC Defensive Player of the Week

Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly was named NFC Defensive Player of the Week for his performance in Week 12 against the New York Jets. It’s no surprise if you watched the Panthers-Jets game last Sunday, but Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly was definitely the defensive player of the game when Carolina needed a big play in what was essentially a must-win game. Kuechly was the man on the spot, taking advantage of a Wes Horton strip sack to end the Jets’ drive, pick up a touchdown and essentially put the game out of reach. Kuechly scooped up Josh McCown’s fumble on the 34-yard line and...

Panthers survive turbulence in 35-27 win over the Jets

Panthers survive turbulence in 35-27 win over the Jets

Kaelin Clay and Luke Kuechly’s heroics vault the Panthers over the Jets. Let’s get the ugly stuff out of the way first: the Carolina Panthers had no business winning. NFL teams cannot count on defensive and special teams touchdowns to win games with any regularity. The now 8-3, playoff-bound Carolina Panthers should have lost to the New York Jets, preseason favorites for the top pick in the 2018 draft. That said, there were still glimpses of the team that has taken turns being dominant on both sides of the ball all season long. At the end of the day, a win is a win and the Panthers are...

Panthers at Jets Final Score: Kaelin Clay and Luke Kuechly help kick the Jets 35-27

Panthers at Jets Final Score: Kaelin Clay and Luke Kuechly help kick the Jets 35-27

The Panthers knocked off a tough Jets team for their 8th win. It wasn’t pretty, but the Panthers made enough big plays on both sides of the ball to win this one. A Kuechly return, a Kaelin return, and some solid plays by Devin Funchess helped the Panthers to their 8th win as they continue to push the playoff race. Highlights The passing game sucked, but the rushing attack managed 144 yards against a stout Jets defense. Can’t complain too much about it though the Panthers struggled at times to push the rock forward. Devin Funchess was really the only offensive weapon who performed,...

Carolina Panthers Film Analysis: Pattern Matching with Luke Kuechly

Carolina Panthers Film Analysis: Pattern Matching with Luke Kuechly

A quick analysis of Luke Kuechly’s incredible football IQ. This is why he’s the best linebacker in football. During last week’s win over the Miami Dolphins, Panthers middle linebacker Luke Kuechly made one of the most impressive plays I’ve seen from a defender all year long. The Dolphins were facing a first and ten at their own 20 yard line, following a disappointing two-minute drill from Carolina’s offense that ended with a punt. The Dolphins were trailing 10-7 and had 47 seconds left along with all three timeouts, and were going to try and drive down the field to tie the game or...
