Disappointing Season Ends With Flourish So Panthers Have A Lot To Look Forward To In 2013

When a bad season is over it is said to have ended mercifully, but in the case of the Panthers there is a real sense that the best is yet to come despite a 7-9 record. Cam Newton may have come of age in a single 60 minutes of play while head coach Ron Rivera gave his boss, Jerry Richardson, something to think about when it comes to his job. Happy New Year, Panthers’ fans!

Panthers Notch Their First Three Game Streak Since 2009

It was a day not fit for man nor beast, and that was just the yellow flags that were raining down on their heads. A plethora of personal fouls ruined an otherwise boring game but in the end the Carolina Panthers did something no one thought possible a few short weeks ago and that was matching last year’s win total.

Panthers Late Season Surge Continues After Convincing 31-7 Win Over Chargers

The Panthers are playing the way many expected them to early in the season so one might say it is better late than never. If fans thought their team played a well rounded game against the Falcons last weekend, the whooping they put on the Chargers on Sunday was as good, if not better.

The Tackle According To Luke: Panthers Kuechly Cops NFC Defensive Player Of The Week

In a season chocked full of rookie sensations, one is rapidly climbing the Defensive Rookie of the Year ladder. Linebacker Luke Kuechly leads the league in tackles, just like he led the nation at Boston College, and despite the Panthers losing record, he could get serious consideration for the top first year player award. Carolina is also knee deep in players on injured reserve.

Ron Rivera Needs To Be Told He Will Return As Panthers Head Coach For 2013

What is more important: How you begin or how you finish? For head coach Ron Rivera, the Panthers have begun to turn things around, but is it too late to keep his job beyond 2012. Over the last half-dozen games, Carolina is a .500 club and deserves a commitment for at least one more year from owner Jerry Richardson.

Panthers Play Their Most Complete Game Of The Season, Slowing Falcons’ Home Field March

As a season winds down, you can always count on someone saying, “If the season ended today …..,” but in the Panthers’ case, it would be “If the season STARTED today …..,” as in six weeks ago. Over that span they are 3-3 and coming off a solid win against a division rival while Cam Newton is looking more like he did last year than in the first seven games of 2012.
