NFL Power Structures: Who really runs a team?

+

For the curious, the Phinsider decided to research all 32 teams and try to decipher exactly who is in charge of what in each of the 32 teams. I found it interesting . . .

The future of NFL training with sports science?

+

This isn't really about Carolina but it may be the future of the NFL. The Eagles approach to touch screen training may revolutionize how players prepare for games.

Pro Bowl rule changes

+

1. A two-minute warning will be added to the first and third quarters and the ball will change hands after each quarter. 2. After the two-minute warning of each quarter, if the offense does not gain at least one yard, the game clock will stop and not start again until the next snap. 3. After an incomplete pass the game clock will start on the referee’s signal, except inside the last two minutes of the first half and the last five minutes of the second half. 4. A 35/25-second play clock will be used instead of the normal 40/25-second clock. 5. The game clock will not stop after a quarterback sack at any point during the game.

22-1: Panther's Super Bowl victory chances next year

These Vegas types don't waste any time to they? I guess the gamblers among us can get started early.

RR takes PFT's Coach of the Year for 2013

1

I think we found a member of the team Florio hasn't taken a dislike to!

Hurney for GM in Tampa?

3

It is probably never going to happen but Pat Y. over at ESPN put Hurney in as an outlier:

But the Bucs also could consider former Chicago general manager Jerry Angelo, who has ties to Smith and the Bucs, former Carolina general manager Marty Hurney and former New York Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum.

Gross' speech launched trek to title

+

I love the Highlander ref, sounds like it was an awesome speech!

Barnwell on Cam's detractors

+

I love it:

You saw all that. Here's my question: If you insist on knocking Newton at this point, what's left to criticize? What's the next thing that will come up? Winning a playoff game? Winning a Super Bowl? That will come. For the moment, though, Newton is content to simply help his team win football games.

Why do the 'Aints do so badly away?

1

One writer at CSC thinks it is all Sean Payton's fault. . .

Source: Cap could exceed $127.5 million for 2014

5

The owners have been told $126.3m but the (aways anon) source said $127.5m was possible.

Hardy's life goes on in Charlotte, Hogwarts

+

I love how clueless the reporters were when he had to explain the 'Kraken,Hogwarts' intro!

Game 150: A Week in the Life of an Officiating Crew

+

While King isn't my favorite sports journalist, I found this article fascinating. It is the first of a 3 parter where King follows some refs around. The post game process sounds simple neurotic to me. . .

It seems PFT thinks we are a playoff lock

+

They say:

The Saints and Panthers play each other twice in December, and if one team sweeps those two games, that team would all but lock up the NFC South. The team that doesn’t win the NFC South is virtually assured of a wild card.

Panthers who merit Pro Bowl consideration

+

David Newton over at ESPN lists eight Panthers he thinks deserves the nod. I'm not particularly interested in the Pro-Bowl because the game almost always sucks but I know the players are. . . if only for the bonus many have baked into their contracts.

For those that do care, the ballet is available here.

Ref explains picking up penalty flag

5

The explanation:

There were two officials that came in. One was the umpire and the other one was our side judge and there was a discussion at that point as to the, in essence, the catchability of the ball due to its location. So it was determined at that point in time that when the primary contact occurred on the tight end that the ball, in essence, was coming in underthrown and in essence it was immediate at that point intercepted at the front end of the end zone. So there was a determination that, in essence, uncatchability, that the ball was intercepted at or about the same time the primary contact against the receiver occurred.

Midseason Report: Carolina Panthers

+

David Newton over at ESPN hands out letter grades to various portions of the team.

Fear the Panthers

+

Barnwell has a stat filled half article on the Panthers. Boiled down to a sentence or two: Nice job on the streak. Prove you are for real next week. Still publicity is publicity. I did notice he is calling the coach "Riverboat Ron" too. Is this a meme yet?

Report: John Fox Suffers Heart Attack

3

Reportedly the Broncos think he'll be ok. Thoughts and prayer for Coach Fox.

Guess who the Rams tried to lure out of retirement as QB?

1

Yeah, they are that desperate . . .

Julio Jones Has A Foot Injury, Could Miss Rest Of 2013 Season

+

I guess the injury bug has been nipping at the folks down around Atlanta too.

DVOA PLAYOFF ODDS REPORT

2

If I am reading this right, they give the Panthers a 52.1% chance of making the playoffs and a 3% chance of winning the Super Bowl. I'm not a stats person but these kinda surprised me. Is FOs a reputable site?

Buccaneers bench Josh Freeman for Mike Glennon

1

Hmmmmmm. . . I guess the Bucs really are a mess this year.

BOA sells the cheapest (price wise) beer in the NFL

1

They have it listed at $.27 an ounce. The most expensive is in Detroit at $.67 an ounce.

Panthers were close to converting to have enough DBs

+

According to Jonathan Jones of the Charlotte Observer, it got so desperate during Sunday’s loss to Buffalo that they nearly had to move linebacker Thomas Davis to safety, which he hadn’t played since his rookie year (2005).

Our Tampa friends seem pretty negative on the season

1

I was wandering around the division blogs when I saw this. Bucs fans sound awfully demoralized at the moment. . .

Panthers' Smith predicts playoff rematch

+

"I stand on this: I think we're going to see them again deep in January," Smith said as he looked for a positive in the loss. "If we continue to play like we're playing, eliminate some of the penalties, eliminate some of the mistakes ... for us to have played that team that is considered by all accounts the best team in the NFL -- according to Skip Bayless, the best AFC team around. ... If that's the best team, we came down to the [final minutes] and it was a well-fought game."

The Wonderful World of Greg Hardy

I posted this just for one little section:

Asked how he came up with individual nicknames for "MonStrz Inc.'' -- a play on "Monsters, Inc.'' to hopefully avoid potential legal issues with the Disney Pixar animation: "I am really talented.''
