Receivers Must Improve Before Season Opener

+Read full article

The Panthers defeated the Giants last Saturday and most of the team looked very solid in the victory. The defense was solid, the QBs did a great job, the TEs did their job well and the special teams went above and beyond what was expected of them. The team looked like one that could drastically improve upon their two-win 2010 campaign.

Except for the wide receiving corps.

Greg Olsen led receiving on Saturday, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. However, you would ideally like to see more than one catch from Armanti Edwards (not to mention less drops) and more than four yards from new Panther Legedu Naanee. Naanee figures to be a big part of this season for the Panthers, but he will need to start producing quickly, as will the rest of the WRs.

You can’t build a good team off of a passing game that requires heavily on TEs and running backs. Look for the Panthers to address this issue this Friday.

Watch Panthers' OT Michael Oher Slide On Levi's Stadium Turf

The condition of the turf at Levi's Stadium during Super Bowl 50 is a popular topic, and for one play Carolina Panthers' left tackle Michael Oher looked like he was on an ice rink as he protected Cam Newton's blind side.

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.
