    BLOG: Not a good way to start the 2017 season for the Carolina Panthers

    Before you get too far into this blog, Cam Newton having surgery on a partially torn rotator cuff on March 30th is NOT the end of the world nor does it mean the Carolina Panthers will have a losing season. But it is not a great way to start the 2017 season.

    The Carolina Panthers had a super busy Tuesday as they filled in their roster by re-signing a bunch of their potential free agents.   Seeing the likes of Charles Johnson, Brenton Bersin, Colin Jones, Michael Palardy, and Tyler Larsen inking new deals is NOT what most fans want to see.  Some may even be in full panic mode at this point.

    Today up at the NFL Combine, coach Ron Rivera announced the hiring of Jerricho Cotchery as the assistant wide receivers coach and that is just what this young wide receiver corp needs. Especially when you consider the fact that there is no long term NFL veteran in the WR room.

    With the season completely OVER and the football hang over in full effect, the big question for Panther fans is, "what do we do to get back to the post season?" I think we will agree that this team needs help in the areas of defensive end and safety on defense.  On offense, the work is a little more extensive as they may look for help at offensive tackle, wide receiver, and running back. How would I attack these issues?  Glad you asked.
