Wild Card Playoffs - Indianapolis Colts v Baltimore Ravens

2012 NFL Playoff Picks – Wild Card Round

With the NFL playoffs now arriving, there are four games in this opening wild card round, and they’re all going to be big. Only one seems like a sure bet pick, but then again…it’s not like my selections have been spot on for most of the season.

Around The NFL: Ray Lewis To ESPN, Coaching Carousel Keeps Going Round And Round

Round and round she goes, where the NFL coaching carousel stops…no one really knows.

Tostitos Fiesta Bowl - Oregon v Kansas State

Around the NFL: Andy Reid to Cards? Chip Kelly to NFL? Mike Holmgren Back Again?

Black Monday is officially over, but now a new time begins in the NFL. That would be a guessing game that’s as big as free agency, and it’s the wonderment as to which coach will end up where.

Health Wise, Saints Lose Two Starters While Panthers Should Be All-In For Season Finale

For the fourth time in the last five seasons, the Panthers will close out the season against the division rival Saints, and the only thing on the line for either club is to finish on a positive note. Carolina desperately wants to surpass last year’s win total while New Orleans, disappointed that they will miss the postseason for the first time since 2008, is looking to go 8-8.

Without Seymour, Raiders Left Defenseless Against ‘Healthier’ Panthers

Defense has not been a trademark of the 2012 Raiders, having given up 402 points in 14 games, so it will be no surprise if they add to that inflated number this weekend. Pro Bowl defensive tackle Richard Seymour has somehow stayed on the active roster all season, despite missing the last six contests, and he will be out again when his team tries to slow down the recharged Panthers.

Trying To Stay Playoff Relevant, Chargers Could Be Getting Hobbled Panthers At Right Time

The way they have been playing of late the Panthers were probably looking forward to taking on the reeling Chargers. That is, until the Friday injury report put them behind the eight-ball with eight starters on it, three definitely out and possibly two more ready to join them.

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.

Injuries Force Panthers To Do More Shuffling Against Healthy Falcons

In a season filled with injuries, the Panthers are very used to saying, “Next man up.” This week is no different as they have to replace their number one back and number two receiver as they host the 11-1 Falcons who are in a lot better shape, physically.

Panthers’ Jonathan Stewart ‘Very Doubtful’ Against Chiefs, DeAngelo Williams Gets Nod

Head coach Ron Rivera pretty much put the kibosh on running back Jonathan Stewart being available to play in Kansas City but with the ground game the way it has been all season, quarterback Cam Newton will more than likely lead the team in rushing once again. DeAngelo Williams wilkl be hard pressed to match him yard for yard.
