July 2015


There were some questions when Panthers owner Jerry Richardson hired Dave Gettleman as the team's new general manager in 2013. Although Gettleman had worked in the NFL for 27 years - mostly with the New York Giants -he'd never held a position with ultimate power over personnel decisions or managed an NFL salary cap. The Panthers have won back-to-back NFC South championships in his first two seasons.
The last time the NFL punished the New England Patriots for cheating, they ran through the regular season with a perfect 16-0 record. With more time this offseason spent debating the ideal gas law than the team's fourth Super Bowl title since 2001, the Patriots have prepared the same way they usually do: allowing some of their biggest stars to leave, avoiding the big-name free agents, and quietly reloading the roster that has won the AFC East 11 times in the past 12 years. After Spygate, when the Patriots were caught illegally videotaping opponents' signals, they ran off a spotless regular-season record before losing in the Super Bowl to blow their chance at the NFL's first-ever 19-0 season.
