Panthers roster news: QB Garrett Gilbert promoted to 53-man roster

The Panthers now have four quarterbacks on their active roster. The Panthers made an interesting move this afternoon by promoting practice squad quarterback Garrett Gilbert to the 53-man roster. Gilbert replaces S Dezmen Southward on the roster, who was apparently cut according to Max Henson who claims there are now two open spots on the practice squad. QB Gilbert has taken S Dez Southward's spot on active roster. And with DL Purcell released, Panthers now have 2 open practice squad spots.— Max Henson (@PanthersMax) October 16, 2017 There’s no word yet on who will take those two...

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

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...

The Scratching Post: Christian McCaffrey is ‘inches away’ from making big plays for the Panthers

The No. 8 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft almost broke a few against the Eagles on Thursday night. Greetings, internet users. Welcome to The Scratching Post. Here’s some reading material from outside CSR for you to consume. Big plays remain "inches away" from Christian McCaffrey | Bill Voth, Panthers.com Granted, coming close to making a play doesn’t mean a whole lot if you don’t make it. And the Panthers lost Thursday night in part because they didn’t make these. But before we begin looking ahead to Week 7, it’s worth pointing out how close Christian McCaffrey came to making...

Eagles 28 Panthers 23: Panther Player of the Game fan poll

Eagles 28 Panthers 23: Panther Player of the Game fan poll

Let’s give a hat tip to those deserving. A week ago I was saying the 2017 Panther offense reminded me of the 2015 offense when they went 15-1. The Thursday night happened, the 2016 offense showed up. The Panther offense has turned in the NFL version of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde. They now get ten days to prepare for a trip to Soldier Field to play the Bears. They have four more games before the bye week and I can see them going at least 2-2, 6-4 overall. But I digress... Here’s this week’s candidates: RB Christian McCaffrey On a day the running game was trash, McCaffrey hauled in 10...

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...

Panthers DC Steve Wilks says Luke Kuechly is ‘fine’ after leaving last night’s game with a possible concussion

Panthers DC Steve Wilks says Luke Kuechly is ‘fine’ after leaving last night’s game with a possible concussion

The Panthers linebacker remains in the concussion protocol. According to a pair of tweets from Bill Voth, Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks believes Luke Kuechly is ‘fine’ after being placed in the concussion protocol last night during the Panthers’ loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. So Wilks said Kuechly is “fine” and other folks here confirmed he was his normal self today. (1/2)— Bill Voth (@PanthersBill) October 13, 2017 Now, sometimes symptoms don’t show up right away. Still, the Panthers may have been overly cautious last night and understandably so....

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: Luke Kuechly being evaluated for concussion

Kuechly went out in the first half with a suspected concussion Luke Kuechly took a mean hit in the first half of the Thursday night game against the Eagles. Initially it looked to be nothing more than a shoulder injury with Kuechly pointing to the shoulder he has had trouble with in the past on the sidelines. He was spotted running to the locker room just before half time. When he failed to return for the second half, reports were that he was being evaluated for what would be his third concussion. The hit from the Eagles’ offensive lineman did not appear to make contact with the helmet...

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!

Philadelphia Eagles at Carolina Panthers: Thursday Night Football Live Blog

The Philadelphia Eagles (4-1) and Carolina Panthers (4-1) will be battling for NFC supremacy early in the season. If both teams continue their winning ways, the winner of this game could hold the keys to homefield advantage in the conference. The Eagles might have the advantage defensively, having faced a similar offense in the Kansas City Chiefs this season, even if that was a game they lost. The Panthers are not nearly as potent on offense as the Chiefs. On the other side, the Panthers defense has been making plays. That is the premier matchup in this game. The Eagles offense is in the...

Thursday Night Football open thread: Eagles at Panthers

Hey, look! A good Thursday Night Football game! Week 6 is already here and it couldn’t come soon enough. The Detroit Lions and their fans are hoping to turn the page from Sunday’s game as quick as possible. Unfortunately Thursday Night Football brings a stark reminder of Sunday’s loss as the Carolina Panthers (4-1) are in action. They will be taking on the Philadelphia Eagles (4-1) in a battle of two of the top teams in the NFL. For the Lions, this will be a good benchmark to see just how good this Panthers team—that essentially dominated Detroit for 3.5 quarters—really is. In...
