The old adage is that “defense wins championships.” But more and more, that sounds like a cliché being echoed by a coach, analyst or fan intent on living in the past. Nowadays, offense makes the difference; at least most of the time. Looking for proof? Take a look at the teams that made the playoffs last season. The 12 teams who made the postseason all finished in the top-18...

Top safeties in the NFL draft: Are any long term options on the Carolina Panthers’ roster?

No matter how you slice it, secondary is going to be a big area of focus for the Carolina Panthers in the upcoming NFL Draft. It may be cornerback that is being viewed as the bigger concern, but safety is still a position that lacks very little depth at this point.

Why the Carolina Panthers should trade up in the draft

The Panthers off-season exploits, or lack there of, have been well documented since the team hurried to franchise tag All-Pro defensive end Greg Hardy and then immediately signed kicker Graham Gano, the most accurate kicker in the NFL from 50-plus yards (6-6), to a four-year contract extension. Since then the team has made the wrong noise, letting three of their top four receivers...
