The Panthers and the Art of War

Many players, coaches, managers, and analysts have equated football planning and strategy to war over the course of the game's history, with the gridiron being the battlefield where it all plays out. So what can the oldest and greatest book of military strategy teach us about the failures of the 2014 Carolina Panthers? War. War never changes. The manner in which it has been fought has evolved greatly since Sun Tzu wrote "The Art of War" around the time period of 500 B.C., but the principles of leadership and discipline remain unchanged. Commanders even in modern times would be foolish to...

Monday morning optimist (Friday edition): Help, please

It was more of the same on Thursday night. The Carolina Panthers were on national TV once again, which means you know what happened. In an all too familiar result we saw the home team lay an egg against the resurgent Saints and find themselves lose the top spot in the NFC South. A freak interception in the first quarter should have resulted in a positive gain, but it didn't. The ball careened off Antoine Cason in coverage and into the open hands of Dwan Edwards. On the ensuing drive the Panthers forced another turnover when edge pressure from Charles Johnson helped create a Drew Brees...

With only three days to recover after beating the Green Bay Packers last Sunday night, the New Orleans Saints earned their first road-win of the 2014 season by defeating the Carolina Panthers at Bank of America Stadium. Here's how Twitter lived the 28-10 triumph. Another intense night of angst, anger, elation and relief for Saints fans. Here's how the craziest social media of the moment, Twitter, reacted to every crucial moment of the NFC South showdown between the Saints and the Panthers. *** Minutes Before the Game Our own Zip Code was at the game, and prior to kickoff he faked...

Panthers Squander NFC South Lead; Lose to Saints 28-10

Panthers Squander NFC South Lead; Lose to Saints 28-10

There wasn't much positive to take away from this game. In front of a prime time audience and with the NFC South lead on the line the Panthers needed to play well. It never happened. Both the offense and defense had their moments, but it was sorely outweighed by bad play all around. The defense started strong in the 1st quarter forcing two Saints turnovers. The offense in turn drove to the Saints 40 twice but then had to punt. The game was a stalemate until late in the 2nd quarter when a fumble by Newton inside his own 10 yard line opened the scoring as Mark Ingram ran in the TD. The...

Saints vs. Panthers Halftime Score Recap: Saints Lead 14-0 After Two Quarters.

It's halftime, bitches! Do what you have to do then get back here to chat up the first half results and discuss the 3rd quarter of the Saints-Panthers game as it unfolds. The New Orleans Saints had their offense humming for their first two possessions of the game. Alas, both resulted in turnovers. Since then, the Saints offense has sputtered and punter Thomas Morstead has had a busy night. The Carolina Panthers haven't been better, as they've turned the ball over twice as well, including a Cam Newton fumble deep in Panthers territory that led to a two-yard Mark Ingram rushing touchdown. At...

Saints at Panthers 2nd Half Open Thread

The defense played well for the first 27 minutes but the offense could not capitalize. Saints lead 14-0. I really want to say a lot of very critical things about this Panther team, in particular the offense but I'll just save it for later and instead hope we turn it around in the 2nd half. This is Now a 2nd Half Open Game Thread!

Thursday Night Football Open Thread: New Orleans Saints at Carolina Panthers

Join us for an NFC South battle, as SOMEONE actually needs to win this division. NFL rules dictate every division must have a winner, yet clearly nobody wants to win the NFC South in 2014. Somehow, the Carolina Panthers (3-4-1, 1st place NFC South) have herp'd and derp'd their way to the top of the division, but it certainly feels tenuous.  The New Orleans Saints (3-4, 2nd place NFC South) refuse to wear pants when they play on the road, or at least they play like it.  It's to the point where these Saints remind me of my beloved Run 'n Shoot era Houston Oilers, who would often dominate at...

Week 9 Thursday Night Football open thread: New Orleans Saints at Carolina Panthers

Two teams with losing records duke it out to see who gets to be top of the NFC South. There's all to play for tonight as the top two teams in the NFC South clash to see which gets to be in sole possession of first place.  In the first of their two intradivisional contests, the 3-4 New Orleans Saints travel to sunny Carolina to face the 3-4-1 Carolina Panthers. The Saints rebounded off a disappointing (for them as well as for us) late collapse against the Detroit Lions in Detroit two weeks ago by thrashing the Green Bay Packers at home, 44-23.  Their 3-4 record is perfectly split between...

Greg Hardy's Season Likely Over After Trial Postponement

Greg Hardy's Season Likely Over After Trial Postponement

More bad news. Per multiple sources, the judge handling Greg Hardy's domestic violence trial is postponing it until after the season. For those of us who were hoping for the best possible outcome in his November 17th trial date, this recent development is just another blow to an already reeling team. Now that his return is out of the question, it will be interesting to see how the players respond, starting tonight against the New Orleans Saints.

Thursday Night Football: Saints at Panthers...with a Dash of Florida St. at Louisville

The Carolina Panthers will host the New Orleans Saints on Thursday Night Football. But before they do, you’d be wise to tune into a Top-25 College matchup between the Cardinals and Seminoles! Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints, who have lost all four of their road games in 2014, head to Carolina on Thursday night to take on the Panthers.  The game kicks off at 8:25pm ET and, for the first time this year, will be shown on the NFL Network. It wasn’t all that long ago that the NFC West was the laughing stock of the NFL.  In 2010, the Rams [yes, the Rams] barely missed a playoff berth...

Panthers vs. Saints: Key Matchups

After a dissappointing loss that we've all know too well in the Ron Riv-Era, the Panthers take on the divisional rival Saints at home on a short week. Miraculously, even after several blowout losses the Panthers are still in position to right the ship and take first place in the NFC South midway through the season. The Panthers looked to have been playing a bit better against the reigning Super Bowl champions, but they will need to be a more complete team to beat the Saints, and win enough games to make the playoffs in 2014. Junior Galette/Parys Haralson vs. David Foucault/Nate...

Saints at Panthers: Offensive Preview

Saints at Panthers: Offensive Preview

Can the Carolina Panthers offense get back on track against a surprisingly weak Saints Defense? Under Mike Shula, the offense has typically come out cold and warmed up in the second half and it extends beyond even this current year. This shouldn't necessarily be tied directly to Mike Shula, as they are getting the yards, just not points. CanadianPanther wrote a fantastic article explaining the Panthers red zone struggles, and it's tough to pin it on play calling. Through a series of miscues, Panthers are simply missing opportunities to score. Last week, the Panthers failed to score a...
