Carolina Panthers v Tampa Bay Buccaneers

How Do The Panthers Make The Playoffs?

Earlier this summer Panthers center Ryan Kalil bought an ad in the paper stating that he thought the Panthers could make it to the Super Bowl. Obviously with Kalil doing his best Don Draper impersonation, this fired up the fans of the team with thoughts of returning to the big game almost a decade after the Panthers’ first appearance in a Super Bowl. Well, there is one way and one way only for Carolina to get Super Bowl bound, and that is to make the playoffs. So how do the Panthers make the playoffs?

Chicago Bears v Carolina Panthers

Panthers Trade Otah, Addition By Subtraction

Yesterday seemed like a normal Monday. The slow, dragging morning, the stark pain of waking up and returning to work, and the long drawn-out afternoon until it’s finally time to go home and unwind. Well, yesterday the Carolina Panthers added a little extra incentive to get home faster and read up on all the news. The Panthers, who have never been a team to make too many off-season trades and acquisitions, made not one but two trades yesterday.

2012 NBA Draft

Curb The Controversy, Kidd-Gilchrist Is A Good Pick

Charlotte’s sports emotions seem to be running high after last night’s NBA draft. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist was either a love-him or hate-him pick. Let’s be honest, though: other than Anthony Davis, there wasn’t a clear-cut number two.

2012 NBA Draft Lottery

Hey NBA, Remove All Doubt

The Charlotte Bobcats continued their losing ways this year on Wednesday when they missed out on the number one pick of the draft. After sporting a 7-59 record and the worst losing percentage in league history (.106), it seemed like they were for certain headed for the number one pick of the draft. In fact, everybody in Charlotte had pretty much banked on taking Anthony Davis at one since about mid-March. So what exactly went wrong Wednesday night?

Should The Panthers Give Plaxico A Shot?

A little bit of a stir was caused this week when wide receiver Plaxico Burress said that he would be interested in playing with the Carolina Panthers. It seems like every off-season a free agent in the wide receiver pool emerges as a name of interest for the Panthers, and why should this year be any different. With that being said, let’s look at some of the Panthers’ possible post-draft moves.

Charlotte Knights

Should The Charlotte Knights Stadium Go Uptown?

This past week a new proposal was presented to give the Charlotte Knights $8.5 million in city money to help build a new stadium uptown. As I heard this news, I thought, “Do we really need another stadium uptown?” Is this a good idea, or a shot in the dark to bring in a MLB franchise?
