    Why I am a Fan of the Carolina Panthers

    I was nine years old when in 1993 I found out North Carolina was getting a NFL football team that we would be sharing with South Carolina. I was an instant homer and was delighted to hear they would be called the Panthers and our Owner Jerry Richardson was a former NFL player. Up to that point, my friends and family were split between the Redskins and Cowboys. I had leaned more toward the Redskins in the matter, and had other teams like the Bears I would root for just because they had the same name as an elementary team I played for. My excitement grew over the next two years while I waited for the Panthers to take the field. I remember Playing Madden on Super Nintendo and wishing I could play

    Would Matt Ryan ever complete 52.9 percent of his passes?

    On May 29, imagine with me Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan following up his Most Valuable Player of the Year campaign with a season in which he completes an absurdly low 52.9 percent of his passes. Now imagine Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton following up his own MVP year by completing 52.9 percent of his passes the following season. Newton came back to Earth in a big way in 2016, throwing the most passes since his rookie year (510) and completing 270 of them — the second lowest of his career. Since Week 11, the Panthers quarterback had five outings in which he completed 48.3 percent or worse of his passes, with a season-low 37.0 coming against the San Diego Chargers in Week 14.

    Why the Bills defense could make a quick, drastic improvement in 2017

    During Rex Ryan’s short-lived tenure as the Buffalo Bills’ head coach, the team’s defense regressed mightily -particularly in the statistical categories such as sacks and turnovers that he’d repeatedly stated would be improved. Instead, the 2016 Bills ranked 19th in total defense (357 yards-per-game allowed) and 19th in third-down defense (40-percent). Buffalo’s defense allowed 7.5 yards-per-pass attempt, the eighth-worst total in the NFL while they boasted the league’s fourth-worst run defense, surrendering 2,130 yards on the ground in addition to 21 rushing touchdowns (second-worst). Buffalo hired former Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott as head coach and while the team saw a large amount of roster overhaul during the offseason, there are several reasons why the Bills should be able to turn around their defensive struggles rather quickly.
