The Carolina Panthers have struggled to find an identity in 2018.

Their defense , once the calling card of the franchise, has been porous. Their run game, while statistically productive, hasn’t been able to sustain drives. Christian[Image: nike_panthers_203.jpg] McCaffrey saw 11 touches yesterday — a far cry from the 25-30 that coaches wanted for him at the start of the season. Instead, their only consistent source of success in the moments where they absolutely needed it has been Cam Newton running a hurry-up offense.They didn’t start the game against the Eagles with Cam completely unleashed, but they put the ball in his hands more in the first half than I remember seeing in a long time. They might just be learning how this team can win games. That display of trust paid dividends in the second half when the offense started to click, coincidentally, when they put the Eagles’ defense on their heels and kept pressing.Obviously Authentic Trai Turner Jersey , the trust in Newton didn’t translate into points immediately. I think the blame for his drive-killing completion percentage in the first half falls neatly between him, his receivers, and the weird weather on the day. It wasn’t good, but the team didn’t run away from Cam and that ended up being everything for them.The second half drives showed the Panthers what this team can look like once the team gets rolling. This offense has the skill to become every bit as potent as the vaunted 2015 team if the coaching staff continues to trust Cam Newton early in games. Cam and Ryan Kalil all but asked for another chance in their post game press conferences.This team has come out misfiring on all cylinders in 2018 and has still put together a respectable record. They already knew how to put themselves in a hole. Now they know they don’t have to. Week 7 might seem a bit late in the season to be nailing those lessons down, but at 4-2 the Panthers can afford to be slow learners.They are not a team that can thrive by playing a slow, deliberate, ball-control offense. They can’t err on the side of punting in close-call situations. They are a team that wins when Cam Newton is winning. They are team that has the speed to both bend and break defenses. That is great, because their defense is prone to both bending and breaking themselves. Getting that on track is the subject of a different Womens Torrey Smith Jersey , and much less optimistic, column.That disparity between offense and defense is why the Panthers can win any game just as well as they can lose them. They don’t operate with a huge margin of error, yet they always seem to find a way to keep a game close. That talent is the key to their greatest hopes for this season.They have the players to compete. I don’t know if they are in the same league as the Patriots, the Chiefs, the Rams, or the Saints, but they can stand with anybody else in the league. Whether or not they will depends entirely on them learning the right lessons from these last three weeks.As it stands, the Panthers put together another terrifying win. They did it against the reigning Super Bowl Champions. They did against one of the best young quarterbacks in the league. Carson Wentz can’t seem to drop the ball on third down without it turning into a conversion for the Eagles. In the face of this new football royalty Authentic Cam Newton Jersey , the Panthers defense held when it counted, their offense stood up when they had to, and now everybody in the Carolinas can celebrate good king Wentz’s loss before the holiday season even begins. The 49ers have made it clear Colin Kaepernick wasn’t in their plans, but they were apparently willing to consider Eric Reid.According to Jim Trotter of ESPN, Reid’s former team made a run at him this week, and was offering a one-year deal for him to come back.Reid signed a one-year deal with the Panthers Thursday instead, where he has a chance to join a playoff-level team that still has a quarterback.Reid spent the past five years with the 49ers, so they obviously knew him well Authentic DJ Moore Jersey , and the fact they waited as long they did speaks to non-football issues and the league-wide reluctance as much as anything else.He had expressed interest in staying with them this spring at his 2017 salary of $5.676 million, but that deal never came together, as the safety market was flat for all of them, even the ones who hadn’t made themselves stand out by taking a knee during the national anthem to protest police brutality and racial inequality.
