Panthers Reacts Survey: Predicting the 2024 win total

Panthers Reacts Survey: Predicting the 2024 win total

Forecasting the season now that we have the schedule in hand

Now that the draft is over, free agency has been largely settled, and we have the 2024 NFL regular season schedule in hand, we can commence with the real business of the offseason: predicting the Carolina Panthers 2024 win total.

We know the Panthers have primarily focused their efforts on improving the offensive line and wide receiver groups and streamlining the communication and coaching that Bryce Young receives. Those were three of the biggest issues the 2023 team was saddled with before they ever took a live snap.

Interesting facts about the Panthers undrafted rookie free agents: Defense and special teams

Interesting facts about the Panthers undrafted rookie free agents: Defense and special teams

Remember the name Willie Drew.

On May 10th the Carolina Panthers announced the signings of 19 undrafted rookie free agents. While it’s rare for UDFAs to make a 53-man roster - and even rarer that they actually contribute - it can happen. Recent Panthers like Adam Thielen, Shy Tuttle, and Frankie Luvu didn’t hear their names called at the NFL draft but were able to rise up through the undrafted ranks to carve out excellent careers.

Most of the 19 UDFAs the Panthers signed this year will be released early in the roster cut process, and three were already waived...

Panthers Reacts Results: Concerns abound at every corner

Panthers Reacts Results: Concerns abound at every corner

There are still a couple of fish in the sea, but Carolina’s depth at this key position is frightening some fans

The results are in and, to no great surprise, Carolina Panthers fans are most concerned about the team’s collection of talent at cornerback. We asked you which position group worried you the most now that the dust from the 2024 NFL Draft and free agency has settled. 40% of y’all said corner, with another 21% still expressing your concerns with Bryce Young.

The quarterback questions are real, but certainly not at the top of my mind. This year is...

Week 1 opening odds for Panthers vs Saints

Week 1 opening odds for Panthers vs Saints

The NFL schedule is out, so of course odds are too

The Carolina Panthers are set to open their 2024 season on the road against the New Orleans Saints. They are also, as is to be expected, opening as underdogs. In fact, the Panthers are joined by the New England Patriots as the only two teams in the NFL who are opening all 17 games as underdogs. What an honor.

Those lines will obviously shift some, even the New Orleans line has room for movement as news from training camp and the preseason adjusts expectations. But for now, take a...

The Panthers schedule gives them an edge in the NFC South

The Carolina Panthers caught some nice breaks in the schedule as it pertains to their divisional aspirations.

The NFL made much ado about releasing the scheduling of games that we already knew about earlier this week, and we’re going to look at that schedule from every possible angle. The Carolina Panthers got a very friendly schedule from the league office, and should the team be competitive, it gives them an advantage over their NFC South brethren.

The Panthers get a tough divisional game out of the way right out of the gate. They visit the New Orleans Saints in Week...
