Panthers failed to put many points on the board Eric Reid Jersey 2019 , there were several statistical happenings worthy of note. The defensive side of the ball provided most of these. Luke Kuechly and Kawann Short repeatedly made their respective presences felt and that resulted in the duo being the top two ranked players on the Panthers defense according to Pro Football Focus. Kuechly amassed 13 tackles en route to his team high grade and sank several hundred thousand Carolina hearts as he hobbled off the field with a lower leg injury. Thankfully, he was able to return to the field to finish his bidding and now sits second in the league in total tackles. For his part, Kawann Short terrorized the shaky interior of the Cowboys offensive line and finished the day with a game high two sacks and four quarterback hits. He was one of eight players to tally a pair of sacks in the NFL’s opening weekend. He was joined in the sack column by Mario Addison and Wes Horton, who each had 1.5 sacks, as well as Shaq Thompson who had a sack of his own to go along with his 9 tackles. All of that culminated in a Panthers defense that finished week 1 ranked third in both yards and points allowed. The offense was unsurprisingly led by quarterback Cam Newton, who accounted for nearly 75% of the Panthers’ total yardage. Newton put up ho-hum numbers as a passer but did a lot of damage as part of the Panthers main triumvirate of runners alongside Christian McCaffrey and CJ Anderson. The trio combined for 143 yards on 30 carries, a healthy 4.77 yards per tote. McCaffrey also reprised his role earning the team’s most targets Blue Ian Thomas Jersey , finishing the contest with 6 catches on 9 targets for an additional 45 yards receiving. Devin Funchess led the Panthers aerial attack in the second half after tight end Greg Olsen left with a foot injury. After failing to secure either of his two official targets in the first half, the third year pro hauled in all three of his targets for 41 yards in the game’s second half.Notable Snap Counts9 players were on the field for 100% of the team’s snaps: Cam Newton, Taylor Moton, Greg Van Roten, Ryan Kalil, Trai Turner, James Bradberry Ian Thomas Jersey 2019 , Donte Jackson, Mike Adams, and Shaq Thompson.McCaffrey dominated the backfield snaps, taking the field for 57 snaps compared to Anderson’s 12.Rookie DJ Moore was on the field for 17 snaps, fourth among the team’s wide receiversColin Jones got all 21 of the snaps missed by starting safety Da’Norris Searcy.

Rebilas-USA TODAY SportsAccording to Over the Cap, free agent wide receiver Chris Hogan’s one-year contract comes with a $1.45 million cap hit in 2019. His signing bonus is a reported $300,000. I recently highlighted three reasons Panthers fans should be optimistic about Hogan’s signing and that list can now be expanded to four in light of his relatively small cap hit. A $1.45 million deal is small enough to keep the Panthers books out of the red and represents sufficient value to leave their rivals green with envy. Carolina didn’t have to break the bank to get Hogan into his new black, blue, and silver Panthers uniform and call Mint Street home. Hogan’s signing came out of the blue and caught many Panthers fans by surprise, but now that the contract figures are emerging it looks like a solid acquisition. Depth is always needed in the NFL Greg Little Jersey , and for the Panthers this includes wide receiver. D.J. Moore plays a physical brand of football and Curtis Samuel has been injury prone. Without additional depth at receiver, any injuries to Moore or Samuel in 2019 would really leave the Panthers dead in the water or up a creek without a paddle, depending on your preference of idioms. Marty Hurney 2.0 continues to land solid free agents on team-friendly deals this offseason, and Chris Hogan can now be added to the growing list.
