Raiders 2016 pre-camp season preview: Week 12 vs Carolina Panthers

Fresh off a trip to Mexico City, hopefully without drinking the water, the Raiders return to Oakland to face the reigning NFC Champions. As if facing the reigning Super Bowl champion Broncos twice this season isn’t enough, the Raiders also face the other Super Bowl team from last season, the Panthers, who also had the league’s best record in 2015. Panthers 2015 numbers Record: 15-1 Offense rank: 11th Defense rank: 6th It’s no coincidence that the Panthers had both the most wins last season, but also scored more points than any other team. They scored a total of exactly 500 points last...

Pete Prisco lists his overrated and underrated Panthers

See if you agree with his selections. It's a fans nature to have a hard time selecting an overrated player while having many players jump to mind for the underrated list. Try not to knee jerk react to Prisco's selection until thinking about them, especially the overrated selection. NFL's Most Underrated: 32 teams, 32 players who deserve more props - CBSSports.com Andrew Norwell G / Carolina Panthers: Trai Turner, the other guard, gets a lot of attention and rightfully so. He is a heck of a player. But Norwell, in his second season as a starter in 2015, isn't far behind. He plays with a...

Raiders will be looking to prove they are legitimate vs Panthers

The Raiders are everyone's pick for upstart contender in 2016. While they may not be picking them to win the AFC West they are certainly expecting them to be a wildcard contender.

Here's a summary of their offseason from an SBN Raiders blogger at Silver and Black Pride: Notable free agent additions: OG Kelechi Osemele, LB Bruce Irvin, CB Sean Smith, S Reggie Nelson Notable free agent departures: S Charles Woodson (retirement), DE Justin Tuck (retirement), OL J'Marcus Webb Trades: None You...

Panthers 2016 Season Opener Countdown: 46 Days to go

Height: 5’ 11” Weight: Probably more than ten years ago Age: 45 College: Tennessee State Hometown: Gallatin, TN Experience: 12 In a magical time, long before Roman Harper was a Panther, before John Fox and Jimmy Clausen were even a thing, way way back before Jake Delhomme and even in a time when Steve Smith was just a promising young prospect in his first year at Santa Monica College, the Panthers were a plucky moderately talented team just starting out as a franchise. In a bygone era known as the 90s, Carolina employed a number of free agent veterans from other teams to fill...

Panthers 2016 season opener countdown: 47 days to go

The click is ticking down. With 47 days to go let's take a brief look at a FB nicknames 'Rockhead'. As nicknames go, Rockhead is a pretty good one for a FB. I look forward to seeing if he lives up to the name. DEVON JOHNSON FB #47 Height: 6-0 Weight: 245 Age: 22 College: Marshall Hometown: Richlands, Va. Experience: Rookie The fullback is a dying position in the NFL in the true sense of the position. Fullbacks like Mike Hoover, who normally rarely tough the ball and instead lead block are few and far between. The Panthers are one of the few remaining teams to employ a fullback yet Mike...

Chiefs will present a huge challenge to Panthers in week 10

The 11-5 Chiefs will travel to BoA stadium to play the Panthers in week 10 of the NFL season. We have no reason to think it won't be a tight game. Here's a preview of the Chiefs offseason provided by an SBN blogger over at Arrowhead Pride Free agent additions: RT Mitch Schwartz, WR Rod Streater Notable free agent departures: CB Sean Smith, S Tyvon Branch, QB Chase Daniel Trades: none It would appear the Chiefs haven't made major changes to a roster that went 11-5 last season. Given they should go 3-1 against the NFC South they could easily repeat an 11 win season. Schwartz is a decent...

Panthers 2016 Season Opener Countdown: 49 Days to Go

It’s here, ladies and gentleman. We are officially less than 50 days from vengeance Panther football. Training camp is just around the corner and hopes are high for the Big Cat and his shiny new statue. And the team, too, I guess.

Panthers secondary depth: Is it safe?

Do the young starters have what it takes? Last week something happened that went largely unnoticed in the Panthers community but does bring to light an interesting point. One of the league’s most talented underdog teams failed to reach a deal with one of the most talented, soon to be free agents in the secondary pool. Pro Bowl Safety Eric Berry enters the 2016 season without a long term deal having missed the Franchise Tag deadline. Berry, who reportedly is seeking in the ballpark of $50 million a year is not likely to be on Gettleman’s radar but that price tag is just another reminder...

Early Week One Carolina Panthers Offensive Depth Chart Projection

Here's an early look at the Carolina Panthers' opening day depth chart. Despite a historically deep roster with a great deal of returning continuity, the Panthers depth chart will likely look very different from last season. They must deal with the (good) problem of figuring out what players they will keep and who will get cut. The team will need to let go of legitimate NFL talent to make it to 53 players, and likely will try to stash some of those on the practice squad. Let's take a look at how that could shake down on offense. Quarterback Cam Newton-Starter Backups: Derek Anderson, Joe...
