+Read full article

The Carolina Panthers have put a request in to speak with a replacement for outgoing head coach John Fox. The name which has surfaced according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter is New York Giants defensive coordinator, Perry Fewell. This might come as a surprise to some Carolina Panthers fans, but this is the type of hire that I expect the Panthers to make. A reasonably priced young coach.Standford’s Jim Harbaugh and Arizona Cardinals assistant Russ Grimm have both been linked to the Panthers in rumors as well. This is the first confirmed action by the organization.

A little background about the Fewell who is 48. He has been involved in coaching since 1985 where he started with the North Carolina Tar Heels as a special assistant. In 1998, he made the jump to the NFL spending four seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars as a defensive backs coach. He spend two seasons, 2003-2004 with the St Louis Rams in the same capacity. He then spent 2005 as defensive backs coach with the Chicago Bears.

In 2006 through 2009, Fewell was the defensive coordinator for the Buffalo Bills and spent time as the Buffalo Bills interim head coach before joining the new York Giants this season as their defensive coordinator.

Watch Cam Newton Put His Own Interests Above The Team

Millions of things have been said about Cam Newton, but this one instance in particular fires me up as a Carolina Panthers fan. With the score 16-10 Broncos, Von Miller knocks the ball out of Newton's hands which leads to a mad scramble. Newton has the opportunity to jump on the ball in the pile, but he decides to back away to protect himself from injury. In a one-possession game in the Super Bowl, Newton should've sacrificed every limb he has to get that ball back for his team, and it's extremely unnerving to me as a fan that he didn't jump in there.
