May 20th, 2012 at 10:26 PM
***PHOTO2*** While the Carolina Panthers received mostly praise for their performance in April's draft, many fans and analysts were surprised that the team didn't address the defensive line until the fourth round (DE Frank Alexander) - and didn't draft a single defensive tackle with one of their seven picks.

Carolina Panthers Must Address Defense First This Offseason
January 4th, 2012 at 9:33 PM
While a 6-10 finish isn't exactly a record that most teams would be content with, the Carolina Panthers may be one of the few exceptions. After an atrocious 2-14 campaign in 2010, Carolina had nowhere to go but up - and they did just that. The Panthers tripled their win total...

Carolina Panthers Game Against Indianapolis Colts is a Must-win Situation
November 23rd, 2011 at 5:43 PM
The Panthers travel to Indianapolis this Sunday to take on the 0-10 Colts in a matchup of two doormats of the NFL. Frankly, the Panthers cannot give the Colts their first victory of the season. In my opinion, the fallout will be utterly devastating for two main reasons. 1) Fan disinterest-...

November 5th, 2011 at 12:00 PM
Run Defense It's no secret. After losing starting linebackers Jon Beason and Thomas Davis early in the season, stopping the run has been the Achilles heel of the Panthers defense all season long.

Carolina Panthers Defense Abysmal Last Two Preseason Games
August 27th, 2011 at 2:16 PM
During his tenure as head coach of the Panthers, John Fox was as conservative as it gets. The offensive game plan was predictable and as a result the Panthers struggled to get first downs, let alone score points. As bad as the Panthers struggled on offense under Fox, the defense...
