Panthers kicker Graham Gano had been there before.
  • Week 11 Color Rush Greg Van Roten Jersey , 2014. The Panthers trailed the Falcons late, 19-17, in Carolina. The Panthers got in range for a potential game-winning kick for Gano.The distance? 63 yards.Gano told PFT by phone after Sunday’s win that he thought of that one when he lined up to kick this one. That one was tipped at the line. Gano said that, this time around, he wanted to be sure the kick cleared the line.It did. He said that he knew that the kick felt good when he kicked it, but he knew it was good only when holder Michael Palardy screamed the ruling in his ear.After that , Gano knew what was coming next. Fearing being at the bottom of a dog pile, he ran away from this teammates.He couldn’t run away from post-game attention.“I feel bad for my wife,” he said as he completed his last interview before joining his family, who was patiently waiting from him much longer than they ever have before.The Carolina Panthers currently have their ‘deepest corps’ of receivers since drafting Cam Newton To prepare for the 2018 season, Cat Scratch Reader sent five questions to Football Outsiders to get a feel on what we should expect from the Panthers in 2018. Scott Kacsmar from FO was kind enough to answer our questions, and each day this week we will share one question and answer to foster discussion here at CSR.Yesterday Color Rush Christian McCaffrey Jersey , our question centered around what Panthers fans should expect from the Panthers’ newest playmaker—wide receiver D.J. Moore—in 2018.Today we take a broader look at the wide receivers on the depth chart.How do you think this year’s WR corps compares to Cam Newton’s previous supporting casts?For the first time in years, the Panthers have a legitimate group of wideouts surrounding Cam Newton. Fans should genuinely be excited about the wide receiver position for a change, since it’s no longer a group that consists of a No. 2 receiver masquerading as a No. 1 target surrounded by five other guys who probably wouldn’t even make another roster. With these added weapons, I believe we’re going to see the best version of Newton possible in 2018. Hell, we could even see CAMVP again this season.What do you think, Panthers fans? Are you looking forward to seeing the revamped wide receiver corps? Do you think the Panthers have a solid group of six? Share your thoughts with us!Also Youth DJ Moore Jersey , be sure to stay tuned for the fourth question and answer with Kacsmar tomorrow, where we’ll turn our attention to the defense!You can purchase the 2018 Football Outsider’s Almanac in PDF form for just $20 by clicking here.
