After repeatedly deconstructing the Panthers current roster I’m starting to feel like Tom Hanks in The ‘Burbs, chanting myself into insanity, “Defensive end...offensive end...offensive…”Yes, the Panthers definitely have gaps to fill in free agency and via the draft, but what if the solutions to some of 2018’s problems are already on the roster? Ladies and gentlemen, let’s look at the brighter side for a moment and consider the following question:What if left tackle Matt Kalil, cornerback Ross Cockrell , and safety Da’Norris Searcy are all healthy — and competent — in 2019? All three of these players were projected as Day 1 starters last year. Both Kalil (knee) and Cockrell (broken leg) got injured before the start of the regular season and spent the entire year on injured reserve. Searcy started the Panthers first two games before hitting injured reserve after sustaining two concussions. The trio carried a combined $11.7 million cap hit and the Panthers got basically no production from them.Assuming all three players are healthy when the 2019 season kicks off, we can then only hope they are competent. Not Pro Bowlers. Not great. Just competent. League average for veterans who are experienced but not yet old. Getting competent play from Matt Kalil protecting Cam Newton’s blindside would be a game-changer for the Panthers. Kalil’s $12.2 million cap hit next year will be tough to swallow, but as CSR’s Bradley Smith has expertly pointed out it doesn’t make financial sense to cut him in 2019. Based on Kalil’s history of uneven play and mounting injuries “competent” is probably the best we can hope for, and it’s not completely out of the question. Stranger things have happened. Ross Cockrell’s return should bolster the cornerback position. Pro Football Focus noted the former New York Giant had a career year in 2017 with an 81.6 grade and was the NFL’s 15th best corner in primary coverage. If he can return to somewhere near that level of play in 2019, Cockrell will be found money. A healthy Da’Norris Searcy could also help shore up the safety position. Searcy was a fourth round pick in 2011 and by his fourth NFL season (2014) had developed into a capable though unspectacular starter. Even if the Panthers bring in someone to start over Searcy in 2019 he should still be able to provide capable depth when called upon. All three of these guys — Kalil, Cockrell, and Searcy — have been at least competent, if not better, at different times throughout their careers. Getting them healthy and productive in 2019 would address some of the current roster gaps on the offensive line and secondary. The problem with the NFL though is as soon as these three guys get healthy, three more will go down. That’s football. Next man up. The reason for Panthers fans to be at least somewhat optimistic right now is the “next men up” may already be on the roster. CLEVELAND (AP) — Cam Newton’s unique fashion choices remain exciting.Everything else about the Carolina Panthers looks stale.Unable to come up with big plays down the stretch again, the reeling Panthers suffered their fifth straight loss, a 26-20 setback to the Cleveland Browns on Sunday that puts a major dent in Carolina’s playoff hopes.Afterward Dontari Poe Color Rush Jersey , Newton, stylish as usual in a hat and tailored gray, three-piece suit adorned with a yellow rose on his lapel, uncomfortably answered questions about Carolina’s collapse.“It’s extremely frustrating to come up short each and every week with similar settings and not be able to push through,” said Newton, who passed for 265 yards and a touchdown but had two bad throws late in the fourth quarter. “I wish I had the words to say, but I don’t. In this league, that’s what it always comes down to: finding ways to keep the game close.“We just haven’t found a way to win.”The Panthers (6-7) are plummeting. They have three games left, but two are against the New Orleans Saints (11-2), who clinched the NFC South with a 28-14 win over Tampa Bay.Carolina was unable to put away the Browns (5-7-1), who scored nine points in the fourth quarter and overcame their own costly mistakes.It’s back to the drawing board for the Panthers and coach Ron Rivera, who was already feeling the heat and is in real danger of losing his job. Rivera shook up his coaching staff last week Jarius Wright Jersey , pulling defensive play-calling duties away from coordinator Eric Washington, firing defensive line coach Brady Hoke and assistant secondary/cornerbacks coach Jeff Imamura.Those moves came after Rivera’s meeting with owner David Tepper and general manager Marty Hurney, who may want to have another discussion with him.The Browns completed a 66-yard pass on their first play, and gashed Carolina’s defense for plays of 51, 51, 29, 28 and 15 yards. Even Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry got loose for a long run.But the Panthers’ biggest problem has been their inability to win close games. They’ve dropped their part four by a combined 17 points.“We felt like we were going to win today,” defensive end Julius Peppers said. “We felt like we were going to win last week. We feel like we are going to win every game. It is not for a lack of confidence. It is just a lack of execution.”With the Panthers trailing 26-20, Newton, who has been bothered by a sore right shoulder for several weeks, dinked and dunked his way to Cleveland’s 3-yard line with 3:25 left.After a run by D.J. Moore was stopped for no gain, Newton underthrew Curtis Samuel in the right corner of the end zone on third down.Then , on fourth down, Newton, facing some pressure up the middle, overthrew Jarius Wright in the back of the end zone on what would end up being Carolina’s last real chance.The Panthers got the ball back with 1:04 left, but Newton missed wide receiver Devin Funchess and was intercepted by Browns safety Damarious Randall.Newton accepted responsibility for his mistakes, but said the Panthers as a whole aren’t doing enough to win.Carolina had earlier chances to score, but a false start led to a field goal instead of a touchdown and the Panthers had the ball for just 24 seconds in one series in the third before punting.“Those opportunities slip through our grasp and find ways to come back and bite us,” Newton said. “Early on in the second half, we had opportunities, favorable field position, and we just have to find ways to score points, touchdowns Greg Van Roten Color Rush Jersey , preferably. Now everyone goes to shuffling, running around with their heads cut off and panicking at the end of the game.“We should’ve done the hard work when we had opportunities. It’s just a detriment to everyone. I’m going to do my part. I’m starting with myself. We all put ourselves in this situation. There’s no one person to blame. We just have to keep moving forward.”Newton quickly dismissed a question about whether he would rest his sore shoulder.Times are tough, but he’s not quitting.“We’re in a position where we’re done with the cliché sayings,” he said. “It just comes down to us doing our job. That’s pretty much what it is, in all three phases of football. Even though coach can get up and motivate us, we can get up, scream and holler, it just comes down to us doing our job.”
