    Haason Reddick Explains Why He Didn't Re-Sign With the Carolina Panthers + Shaq Thompson's Future

    Haason Reddick Explains Why He Didn't Re-Sign With the Carolina Panthers + Shaq Thompson's Future

    Former Carolina Panthers EDGE rusher Haason Reddick will take part in Super Bowl 57 on Sunday as a member of his hometown Philadelphia Eagles. Reddick, in his lone season in Carolina, led the team with 11.0 sacks. He's followed up on that effort with 16.0 sacks + 3.5 during the Eagles postseason run to the Super Bowl. So why would the Panthers let a talented player like Reddick walk? Reddick explained why he didn't return to Carolina and it wasn't a lack of interest. Julian Council explains why the Panthers inability to re-sign Reddick is good and bad.
    Panthers LB Shaq Thompson is a strong candidate to be a cap casualty as he carries a $24.4M cap charge in 2023. Thompson was on Twitter on Monday interacting with several fans including those who questioned why he wasn't a Frank Reich's introductory press conference. Julian ponders Shaq's future and whether fans understand why it'll be difficult for Thompson to return.
    Plus, Panthers interim head coach Steve Wilks lands as the DC for the 49ers. Julian explains why this could be for the best for Wilks and Carolina long-term.

    Carolina Panthers Make Splash Hire, Ejiro Evero Joins Frank Reich's Staff As Defensive Coordinator

    Carolina Panthers Make Splash Hire, Ejiro Evero Joins Frank Reich's Staff As Defensive Coordinator

    When Carolina Panthers owner David Tepper hired Frank Reich he mentioned how Reich was able to win him because of the staff Reich said that he'd be able to bring to Carolina. Tepper said that he'd aid Reich in offering competitive coaching salaries to Reich's staff targets. Well, Tepper is a man of his word as the Panthers came to terms on Sunday with Denver Broncos defensive coordinator Ejiro Evero to lead the team's defense in 2023. Julian Council discusses the importance of the hire and what it symbolizes about the Panthers intentions moving forward.
    Plus, an update on who could join the defensive staff now that Evero is on as DC + when the Panthers might be able to hire an OC.

    Tom Brady Retires...Again, Carolina Panthers Must Take Advantage Of A Wide Open NFC South

    Tom Brady Retires...Again, Carolina Panthers Must Take Advantage Of A Wide Open NFC South

    Tom Brady announced his retirement for the second year in a row on February 1st but unlike last year, Brady intends to stick with his decision to leave the game of football. The Panthers sat in a position last year believing that they could be the team to take over the NFC South with Brady gone but even had Brady not returned the Panthers weren't headed to long-term success under former head coach Matt Rhule. Following the hiring of Frank Reich, is now the time for Carolina to be the top dog in the NFC South? Julian Council examines the state of the division and where Carolina stands.
    Given the wide-open nature of the NFC South and the young talent of the Panthers roster, should 2023 be viewed as a 'division title of bust' season for Reich?
    Plus, Reich makes his first staff hire and an update on the Panthers OC search.

Great Podcast

Julian definitely knows his Panthers! I listen everyday and he provides great information and gives great insight !

Good podcast

Solid podcast, just think requesting “5 star reviews only” is cringe. Also not a fan of the host bringing his views up about things ie the vaccine. Otherwise great podcast one of my favorites.

CarolinasChris ,

Julian Council is not a Panthers fan

All Julian does is complain about the team. He has a negative outlook and everything Panthers and thinks David Tepper is a moron. He’s not fun to listen to. If you’re looking for a Carolina Panthers podcast, skip this one.
