Team Grades: Early Woes Bring Panthers’ Loss To Falcons

The Carolina Panthers have fallen even further down the NFC South ladder, and it is looking more and more like “there’s always next year” talk instead of “playoffs.” The Atlanta Falcons were able to hold on and now are tied for the division lead.

Team Grades: Panthers Embarrassed By Eagles In Huge Rout

The Carolina Panthers had a good chance to move up in the NFC South due to a loss by the New Orleans Saints, but it wasn’t meant to be. Not only was that the case, but the Philadelphia Eagles welcomed them into town and simply embarrassed them.

Team Grades: Panthers Allow Saints To Run All Over Them

The Carolina Panthers are in a complete free-fall and it continued on “Thursday Night Football” with a loss to the New Orleans Saints. Carolina’s defense couldn’t stop the Saints and the offense could never get going in a season that is slipping away.

Team Grades: Panthers Just Fail Miserably Against Struggling Seahawks

Once known as one of the strongest divisions in all of football, the NFC South will get through week eight without a single team over the .500 mark. A preseason Super Bowl contender, the Carolina Panthers looked like anything but, against a Seattle Seahawks team that had been struggling.

Team Grades: Panthers Fail In Almost Every Department In Blowout Loss To Packers

It’s hard to imagine that this is the same Carolina Panthers team from last year or even earlier this season, but it is. Injuries are beginning to be a problem, but it’s the defense that is the biggest fault of the team and the Green Bay Packers totally exposed it.

Team Grades: Panthers Defense Fail To Stop Bengals, But Offense Leads To Tie

The Carolina Panthers were hoping that some of the plaguing issues that have bothered them for a few weeks now would be rectified against the Cincinnati Bengals. Unfortunately, they still can’t run the ball and their defense is full of holes, but at least it didn’t result in a loss.

Team Grades: Panthers Mount Huge Comeback To Take Down Bears

The Carolina Panthers have been on a downward spiral the past two weeks, and the first half against the Chicago Bears made it seem like that would continue. Then, they got back on their horse and turned things around to make it a game throughout the second half.

Team Grades: Steve Smith Decimates Former Team As Panthers Fail Versus Ravens

Steve Smith said there would be “blood and guts” when he first faced off with his former team in the Carolina Panthers, and he wasn’t kidding. After two wins to open the season, the Panthers have lost two in a row and this week, they weren’t even close.

Team Grades: Panthers Crumble In Second-Half Loss To Steelers

The Carolina Panthers have started two different quarterbacks this season and racked up two wins as they look like legitimate Super Bowl contenders. Against the Pittsburgh Steelers, those contenders looked nothing like what had been shown so far this season and it’s kind of hard to figure out what happened.

Team Grades: Cam Newton’s Return Sparks Panthers Rout Of Lions

The return of Cam Newton to the starting quarterback position for the Carolina Panthers brought an extra spark to a team that played well enough in week one to register a win. Now, they’ve taken down the Detroit Lions for a 2-0 start, but there are still a number of things that could use some improvement.
