Greg Olsen Jersey

These brave souls tried to stay healthy where even Cam Newton couldn’t. Let’s remember their valiant efforts."There is no way that the 2018 season doesn’t feel like a lost season for every member of the Carolina Panthers Greg Olsen Jersey , from David Tepper to the newest fan. Their strong start in the face of significant and ongoing injuries was a testament to a team that could have been runners up to the New Orleans Saints in this year’s Shoulda Bowl. The last straw was the regression, against all hope, of Cam Newton’s shoulder. You’ll get a larger indictment of the offensive line play later this week, as we review every position on the Panthers offense Fozzy Whittaker Color Rush Jersey , but for now let’s look at the guys who came in for Newton at the end of the season. Any one of them could be asked to play that same role again in 2019.Taylor HeinickeHeinicke was the second quarterback to start a game for the Carolina Panthers last year and the first to have surgery. He completed 33 of 53 passing attempts for 274 yards, one touchdown, and three interceptions in his lone start of the season. It was a competent performance, as far as back ups go Rashaan Gaulden Jersey , against the Atlanta Falcons and he should be in the mix to back up Newton next season. He won the job out of training camp and stepped in throughout the season to throw hail marys when nobody else could.He suffered an injury to his left (non-throwing) elbow during the Panthers loss to the Falcons in Week 16. That injury is not expected to keep him from competing in training camp should the Panthers chose to bring him back.Kyle AllenThis is the hardest performance to judge from last year. Allen bounced on and off the practice squad all season, finally making the roster when the Panthers sat Newton for the final two games. He received a lot of press for snapping the team’s losing streak and putting up a respectable looking performance against the New Orleans Saints in the last game of the season. His numbers looked a little better than Heinicke’s, completing 16 of 27 attempts for 228 yards and two touchdowns, but they also came from disinterested competition. The Saints were resting their starters with eyes firmly on the playoffs. They would have liked to beat the Panthers Thomas Davis Color Rush Jersey , but it wasn’t exactly a priority.Allen’s injury was a shoulder injury that is not expected to be a long term hindrance to him. He has earned the right to compete for the back up spot in 2019, but I think it is impossible to predict who, if it comes down to Heinicke and Allen, will win that competition based off their 2018 performances.Garrett GilbertGilbert is the big wild card in the Panthers’ quarterback room. He is also the only quarterback on the Panthers’ roster to finish the season healthy enough to play if they had , by some miracle, tripped into the playoffs. His 2018 hardly has enough action to review. Those last two sentences might be related.He completed two of his three pass attempts for 40 yards in relief of an injured Kyle Allen. Looking to 2019, his current career as the starting quarterback for the Orlando Apollos of the Alliance of American Football is what elevates his NFL chances this year.He turned himself into a trivia answer on Saturday by passing for the first touchdown in AAF history, going on to complete 15 of his 27 passing attempts for 227 yards and two touchdowns. He also tacked on a receiving touchdown because apparently the AAF is fun like that. The simple fact is that Gilbert looked good in his Apollos debut and has the biggest stage of any candidate to make his case for the Panthers 2019 back up spot. Are the Panthers a better team after one week?" />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesHorizontal - WhiteCat Scratch Readera Carolina Panthers communityLog In or Sign UpLog InSign UpFanpostsFanshotsSectionsAboutPanthersOddsShopStubHubMoreAll 322 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Keep Sounding PodcastPanthers 2019 NFL DraftCSR Film RoomFiled under:Carolina Panthers free agency 2019Panthers fan poll: Grade the Panthers’ first week of free agencyNew ,57commentsAre the Panthers a better team after one week?EDTShareTweetShareSharePanthers fan poll: Grade the Panthers’ first week of free agencyPhoto by Thearon W. Henderson/Getty ImagesColor me surprised that the Panthers made a splash in the first week of free agency, at least for the Panthers anyway. In years past it would be a week before the Panthers made their first significant move. Instead the Panthers filled three critical gaps by securing center Matt Paradis, offensive tackle Daryl Williams and defensive end Bruce Irvin. Paradis was arguably the best interior offensive lineman on the market and they signed him right out of the gate. What is this madness?Not only that, but the pundits love it too. Even more madness!In order to avoid showing bias to one side of the possible grading selection in the poll , here’s some red meat for the other side, the never happy crowd:Where’s the free agent safety we need huh? What about the back-up running back? Get with the program Hurneynator! Salary cap! Dead money! Cam’s shoulder. Ahhhhhh!So think long and hard and put a grade to it.
