Cam Newton: Good Pick or Bad Pick?

Why Start Clausen?

My how the times have changed. Most fans favor giving Clausen his opportunity to start next week, and that includes most of those who supported Matt Moore initially. That seems really ironic to me,...

Will the Panthers Defense Be Ready in 2010?

Breaking Down the Panthers 2010 Schedule

A deeper look at the Panthers 2010 schedule

Panthers Lose Coin Toss, But Win In Draft Order


Charles Chandler and Darin Gantt reported the Panthers lost the coin toss with the Tennessee Titans to determine who would pick first in the 1st round of the NFL Draft. The Panthers lost, which means the pick they traded to San Francisco will fall back in the draft order. The order reverses itself after that in then 2nd round, which means the Panthers will pick earlier than they otherwise would have if they'd won the coin toss with Tennessee. So, the 49ers lost some ground (and will pick 17th instead of 16th). And the Panthers gained some ground (picking 47th instead of 48th).

Panthers Might Be Pursuing DT Alfonso Boone


Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network says that a league source has indicated the Panthers have been in contact with DT Alfonso Boone. He was with the Chicago Bears from 2000 thru 2006, then spent 2 years with the Kansas City Chiefs. He was released on Tuesday. Alfonso is 33 years old, 6'3", and 305 lbs. with 9 years of experience in the NFL. In 113 games, he has posted 150 tackles, 12.5 sacks, and 13 passes defensed. According to some, Boone was ill-suited for the Chiefs new 3-4 scheme and became expendable.
