One Day Contract - A Panthers Talk Show
By The Riot Network
A Carolina Panthers podcast where host Nikki Wolfe and panelists Josh Klein and Colin Hoggard invite a new guest each week to sign a One Day Contract and talk about the Panthers news of the week.
Week 4 Review With Special Guest Walker Mehl
Walker Mehl of ESPN730 The Game joins the show to talk about additional meat, what they did during the great Instagram Outage of 2021 and ask the important questions like whether or not Don Shula is still alive. They'll dive deep into the Panthers loss to the Cowboys and how much the Shaq Thompson injury helps, when it will be time to bring CMC back and if 70% of McCaffrey is better than 50% of Shaq Thompson -- trust us, it kind of makes sense in context. The crew asks whether there are things to be worried about on the coaching staff, what this game means to the Panthers season and -- of course -- if help is on the way for the offensive line. All that, plus Dr. Bakaba, 48 ounces of steak and Josh jumps in the Facebook comments while Walker kills the bit immediately.

Training Camp Observations With Special Guest Alaina Getzenberg
Panthers Beat Writer for the Observer (#supportlocaljournalism) Alaina Getzenberg joins the show to give her initial impressions of Panthers training camp, why she's so impressed with Derrick Brown and lament why she didn't win best hair in high school - that'll make sense once you listen to the episode. They'll talk the differences between a Matt Rhule and Ron Rivera practice - it's faster! - whether or not Rhule likes the extra scrutiny that comes with running and NFL team and whether or not this is the true measure of a Rhule training camp or if we're just seeing what football looks like in 2020. They'll do jersey talk, why the Panthers defense is inevitably going to doom their 2020 season and give out some Senior Superlatives, including why Joe Brady is Josh's Most Likely To Disappoint.

Training Camp Media Deep Dive With Special Guest Bryan Curtis
Colin, Nikki & Josh discuss Josh's hairstyle, whether it's fair to judge new coaches strictly on their team's COVID preparedness, if Teddy Bridgewater has been given a fair shake as the newest quarterback of the Panthers and if it's time to start evaluating Matt Rhule yet. They'll also talk about how Teddy is always going to be tied to Cam, play a new game of Training Camp Jeopardy and bemoan the fact that neither Curtis Samuel nor Taylor Moton have been resigned yet. Can Brian Burns make the leap in 2020? Make sure you pose your answer in the form of a question. Then, Editor-At-Large for the Ringer and host of the Press Box pod Bryan Curtis joins Colin and Josh (48:50) to discuss the origins of sidling and just how important it is in sports media, whether journalism or media can recover from the Twitter-cizing of the world and whether Cornhole needs an All-22 guy.

Training Camp History Lessons with Special Guest Jim Szoke
Legendary broadcaster and Voice of the Panthers Jim Szoke joins the show to talk about how the Panthers have changed over the past 25 years, why this training camp doesn't feel like training camp at all and how Marty Hurney is handling the roster during this strange, weird offseason. They'll talk about how the Panthers are equipping Bank of America Stadium to talk about COVID (#EightIsTheNewSix), reflect on why there's really not that much actual football to talk about - seriously - even as the Panthers begin camp and why they may never go back to Spartanburg. Jim regales the crew with stories of his favorite seasons in Panthers history, the differences between Jake Delhomme and Cam Newton and what's changed the most since the Richardson Era became the Tepper Panthers - then he'll stick around for a round of COME ON DOWN, the newest game (do we invent a new game every week?) in the #OneDayContract catalogue.

Panthers Defensive Preview With Special Guest Cody Alexander
POSITIVE ENERGY! The One Day Contract crew is saying YES this week - to offensive line reality shows, to the Panthers never punting and to Brian Burns having a breakout year in this SUPER-SIZED episode! They'll kick around the news of the week, including a brand new specialist unit joining the team for 2020, why they're worried more about a specific player opting out than any other one and revisit whether it's Marty or Matt Rhule making the decisions. Josh takes some time to go in-depth on Phil Snow with Cody Alexander of Match Quarters (53:04), one of the smartest defensive minds you'll ever talk to about what kind of scheme he expects from Snow, how a defense could gameplan to stop Christian McCaffrey and the intricacies of pass defense. Then they'll break down the defense, from whether the defensive line needs to put up or shut up, who is the most important linebacker and THANKFULLY if the Panthers have finally invested in defense. Oh, and they'll talk Curtis Samuel playing running back and everyone's favorite game YA BASIC makes it's triumphant return!

Panthers Offensive Preview With Special Guest Myles Simmons
Senior Writer for Panthers.com Myles Simmons joins the One Day Contract crew to talk about the weird start to training camp, what to expect from the team as they adjust to practicing in the age of COVID-19 and whether a UDFA can make the team without and preseason games. Plus, he'll reveal the only time he's freaked out at work and the time Jeff Fisher played a practical joke on him. Then, they'll actually look ahead to what the Panthers can expect on the field, position-by-position: whether Teddy Bridgewater wants to win in 2020, if PJ Walker has the backup job by default and if Will Grier would survive the practice squad, if CMC will come off the field and why you shouldn't underestimate Mike Davis, their offensive line starters and who will have a bigger season: Curtis Samuel or Ian Thomas? Plus, they debate if DJ Moore can ascend to the next level and Josh thinks that he's going to get the biggest boost from the Joe Brady offense. Then, they'll play the newest game in the catalog: BREAKOUT CANDIDATE: Robby Anderson vs. Curtis Samuel.

Training Camp Timing With Special Guest Sheena Quick
And we're back! Sheena Quick joins the show to teach Josh about Skylanders and the Game Truck, talk about what it's like to see Cam Newton in another uniform and the woes of being a reporter in the time of COVID-19. The gang will also talk about whether the fanbase is being fair to Teddy Bridgewater, why Twitter is fantastic to not be on and whether or not the NFL is doing enough to properly protect their players - do they think training camp will be starting in three weeks? Nah. They'll also talk about who has the most to lose when reporters get kicked out of the locker room, exchange happy thoughts, whether Marty's job is tied to Cam's success or failure in New England and try to figure out who would be the guy who fans will yell at when they want their autograph.

2020 Draft Review With Special Guest Al Wallace
The Panthers added at least seven new defensive players last weekend - and the #OneDayContract crew has brought in former Panthers defensive end and 10-year vet Al Wallace to talk about how the Panthers remade their defense. Of course, Al loves the additions of Derrick Brown and Yetur Gross-Matos, but Josh disagrees with the process of how the Panthers ended up with Brown in the first round. They'll talk about the way the Panthers are going about rebuilding their team, whether they should be following the Dolphins' blueprint and why the NFL Draft needs to change the way it's presented. On the football side, how many starters did the Panthers get in the draft? How much will Brown help Brian Burns' development and why does he think the defensive line is closer to the one the Panthers' had in 2003 than you think? Plus, why Al thinks Jeremy Chinn looks to him like a young Brian Dawkins, how close to the roster the Panthers UDFA's are and why the Panthers MUST sign a cornerback before the summer. Oh, and they'll talk Madden ratings, whether Cam Newton will get a job anytime soon, why quarantine facial hair always gets a Kawann and which members of the pod are in the "Big Arms & Running Backs Shouldn't Get Paid" Club.

Previewing The 2020 Draft With Special Guest Vincent Richardson
The draft is here! Co-Host of The Great British Drafting Show and draft guru Vincent Richardson joins the show to talk about whether or not the Panthers should trade down, where the threshold is if they do - there's a certain number they don't want to go below - and how many top-tier players there are in the 2020 Draft Class and how the Panthers can get one of them. They'll talk the five players most likely to be drafted by the Panthers and who everyone prefers, whether it's a defensive lineman like Derrick Brown or Javon Kinlaw or a corner like CJ Henderson or Jeff Okudah or an everything like Isaiah Simmons. They'll also talk about what they'll expect the Panthers to get out of this draft class, the way to approach a draft in an overall sense and who might be a wild card in the first round for the Panthers. They'll also get a chance to ROLE PLAY as they'll offer trades to virtual Marty Hurneys and don't worry - the Panthers win every deal on One Day Contract, including trading FOR OJ Howard and trading AWAY Curtis Samuel. All that, plus they'll make the Panthers offense more FUN and Colin and Vincent will somehow get into how much they love Jake Fromm - we're not sure how they got there either.

Debating Christian McCaffrey and the 2020 Plan With Special Guest Chris McClain
A day after the Panthers made Christian McCaffrey the highest paid running back in NFL history, Mac of WFNZ's Mac Attack joins the show for the first time ever to gang up with Colin on Josh about whether or not it's OK to not have kids, why the deal was absolutely the right move and talk through what exactly bathroom cookies are. The first half of the show is a long talk about whether or not you can win a Super Bowl with a highly-paid running back, why analytics and the new-school "running backs don't matter" crowd aren't taking a weapon like McCaffrey into account, what the ceiling of the team is going to be with McCaffrey and the reasons both on and off the field the Panthers had to make this move. They'll talk - again - about whether or not the Panthers have a plan, how they see this team playing in 2020, where Marty fits into the future, make quarantine recommendations and talk why the Panthers absolutely must come out of the draft with a corner and a defensive tackle, but it's still John R. Tradedown who remains at the top of Josh's board. Jeremy R. Tradedown? That guy sucks.

Draft Preview With Special Guest Joe Marino
A couple of weeks into free agency and the #OneDayContract crew is ready to move forward into #DraftSZN - another socially distanced episode this week with The Draft Network's Joe Marino, who joins the show to talk the Carolina-Buffalo pipeline, whether he thinks Christian McCaffrey should play another down without a new contract (he doesn't think he should) and what the Panthers quarterback situation will look like for the next five years. While Colin disagrees, Joe thinks the Panthers are - for lack of a better term - Tanking For Trevor and why he thinks that with the state of the NFC South, that makes a lot of sense. They'll also dive headfirst into the draft with talk about whether or not the Panthers should make a trade out of the seventh pick (HELL YES), whether he thinks they can pass on Jeff Okudah at the seventh pick (NOPE) and if Simmons, Brown or Kinlaw might keep them at seven (NOPE). It's an all draft episode as the Panthers prepare to reload their roster - what will it take to get the Panthers to the #1 pick in 2021? Did they make a mistake letting Brandon Beane go? Should the Panthers be looking for compensatory picks when they make signing? Where will Cam end up? All that, plus Ozark talk and much more zaniness!

Cam Newton Released With Special Guest Josh Parcell
When the most iconic player in your franchise's history gets released, it's time for an emergency podcast and the #OneDayContract crew isn't going to let a little social distancing keep them from talking about what Cam Newton's legacy is in Carolina, what the plan is in free agency and whether or not they're tanking, retooling or what and just how long it's been since Josh has worn jeans as WFNZ's Josh Parcell joins the show live from his living room. Will Josh's dog bark at the mailman? How much weight have they all gained? And is this the end of an era for TWO QUARTERBACKS a in Carolina this week? All those questions, plus how Cam's loss affects the bottom line, what Teddy B can bring to the Panthers in 2020 or 2021 and they'll talk their favorite Cam memories from the past decade on this episode of One Day Contract!

Social Distancing With Special Guest Max Henson
Formerly PanthersMax, now Max Henson, joins the show to talk what the Panthers plans are for free agency, who they think would be a good addition to the culture that Matt Rhule is trying to build, what the players gave up by signing the CBA, whether steak is too heavy for lunch and discuss the weird and wild time that the world is going through. The #OneDayContract tries to provide some distraction as they talk through the amount of Panthers players that listen to the podcast, answer a Twitter question about whether the team is rebuilding, retooling or WHAT and then play a modified version of Cam to Kawann that only goes to 19 where the tough questions get answered, including: How many wins will the Panthers have in 2020? Why does Colin think they'll be drafting first overall in 2021? When will Nikki stop wearing sweatpants in the next three weeks? Oh, and Colin and Josh make a bet that will absolutely get paid off.

Trusting The Process With Special Guest Kevin Donnalley
Former Carolina Panthers offensive lineman and co-host of The Carolina Line Kevin Donnalley joins the One Day Contract crew to discuss ---- SIGH ---- the latest in the Cam Newton saga, whether they think the XFL is going to last and why it is so important to the NFL that it survives, whether the entire roster is on the trading block and if not, which players will be in Carolina next season. Oh, and yes, they're down with OPP. That's other people's processes - whether Matt Rhule and David Tepper are currently working off the right vision, how being on the trade block affects players and whether or not the differing timelines of Rhule and Marty Hurney might cause a problem during the 2020 season. What exactly is a process-based approach and are the Panthers actually using one? That, plus they'll play Cam to Kawann with which players will be on the roster next season - including a surprising flip-flop from Josh & Colin, talk about whether the NFL isn't as tough as it used to be and the moment when Kevin realized that Bruce Irvin was not screwing around.

Curbing Enthusiasm With Special Guest Bill Voth
Panthers Bill joins the #OneDayContract crew to talk about if there's any chance that the new coaching staff is a roaring success, if there's any chance that Cam Newton takes the first snap of 2020 and if there's any chance he's forgotten how to be an actual writer. They'll talk about why Luke Kuechly retired, if this is going to be the 'new normal' in the NFL to see stars retiring early, whether he'd be able to transition to the Panthers sideline immediately and what his next steps might be. They'll talk Curb Your Enthusiasm, whether fresh eggs hit different and why 'trust the process' isn't a good catchphrase for the next era of the Carolina Panthers. Whether or not Joe Brady/Phil Snow/Matt Rhule can command the locker room, whether David Tepper is a patient man and whether or not the idea of 'building a program' makes sense in terms of making things work in the NFL.. All that, plus Cam to Kawann, whether the Panthers WASTED Cam & Luke and moving from the Jerry Era to the Tepper Era whether we like it or not.

They'll talk about what David Tepper should be looking for in a new coach, who they like among the leading candidates and of course, there will be Cam talk - can't have a Panthers party without some talk about Cam Newton. Plus, they'll take a look at whether or not Marty Hurney is just a "meat shield" for an upcoming unpopular move, what's happening in the front office and why the assistant GM/VP of Football Operations is likely coming as a new best friend of whomever the coach is. And, as always, they'll closely examine the filmography of Brendan Fraser and talk about their New Year's Resolutions.

Week 15 With Special Guest Alaina Getzenberg
New beat writer for the Charlotte Observer and the reason for the Panthers' five-game losing streak Alaina Getzenberg joins the show to talk why Cam had his surgery so late, the worst takes on ketchup you've ever heard, the great David Tepper Debate on what he was eating at Mercedes-Benz Stadium and why - again - it doesn't make any sense for the Panthers to go into 2020 hoping - not planning - that Cam Newton will be their QB. And you can't get away from the QB talk as Colin has some thoughts on press conference etiquette, Donte Jackson being wrong but yet also being right, whether or not there's anyone in that locker room to call the brash young corner out and Josh has some thoughts on Colin's podcasting style - please don't take them out of context. Plus Santa talk, young players the panel wants to see, whether we should start listening to what the Panthers are telling us and a Christmas Song Mashup that ends with driedel talk.

Zero Day Contract: The End of the Rivera Era
With Nikki out of town and all of the Charlotte media handling.....some news, Colin & Josh are here to talk about the end of the Ron Rivera Era, where the Panthers go from here, whether or not David Tepper revealed who he might be looking at for the next head coach of the Panthers, why this happened now and whether or not it was the correct decision at all. They'll try to parse through who the new owner of the Panthers is, what type of team is in Carolina and whether or not the Panthers are in for a full rebuild next season. They'll then take a few minutes to talk about who Ron Rivera was and what he meant to this community, this team and this franchise. Analytics will play a large role in this podcast.

Zero Day Contract: Thanksgiving Week & Long Term Medicority
Colin, Nikki & Josh are thankful for the opportunity to chat with each other this week as they talk about how ranch is the new ketchup, get agreeable on how a hot dog is not a sandwich and then dive into some serious questions that will affect the future of the Carolina Panthers. If the Panthers are going to move on from Ron Rivera, is there a better option out there - what exactly does 'long term mediocrity' mean? What's the term? What defines mediocre? They'll also talk about analytics, who the cream of the crop is in the NFL , how you reach the pinnacle without spending some time at the bottom, and the immediacy of takes and the inability to think about things rationally; can you be a successful team without winning a Super Bowl and if you take away the warlocks, are there really any good teams in the NFL? Oh, and of course they'll talk about Cam Newton and what exactly it means that "Charlotte is home". All that, plus they'll play Lucky Sevens - or Complete Rebuild if you're feeling negative - and choose seven Panthers to look towards the future.

Week 12 With Special Guest Jonathan Jones
After David Tepper took some time this week to meet with local media, the One Day Contract crew called in one of their favorite guests as Jonathan Jones of CBS Sports joins the show to discuss everything that happened over at Bank of America Stadium on Monday afternoon. Josh reveals what was said around the roundtable and Colin, Nikki, & JJ talk about the business side of the Carolina Panthers, why Lamar Jackson is the MVP but every running quarterback has an expiration date, they talk about Cam Newton playing elsewhere, run down some other options for the QB and why Kyle Allen is doing exactly what he's supposed to be doing. They'll talk gambling, MLS, what's going on with Bank of America Stadium, why long term mediocrity isn't exactly what trusting the process is and why nobody won in the Colin Kaepernick saga. All that, plus The Name Game, why JJ is the Thursday Night Package and he reveals some details about the Jerry Richardson statue and why it's coming with the Panthers no matter where they go ---- but it's going on the trash heap if the Dragons start breathing fire at the BoA.

Week 11 With Special Guest Darin Gantt
Resident truth-teller or crankypants - depending on who you ask - joins Josh & Nikki (and Colin chimes in too) to talk about.....what else? Cam Newton and Kyle Allen, whether Cam could get into the Hall of Fame right now, where Darin thinks Cam plays next year and what kind of stuff he would buy if he had a lot of salary cap room. They'll also talk about Colin Kaepernick's tryout and how big of a sham it is by the NFL, what the leash is for Ron & Marty and whether or not they come as a bonded pair. Oh, and don't think they didn't talk about cold weather outfits, favorite candy, Green Bay Packers stories and much more for the first 15 minutes of nonsense. The second segment features how to fix the run defense, whether going to the 3-4 was a mistake and reading the same tweets about how Luke Kuechly has gone downhill - all that, plus Word Association!

Week 10 With Special Guest Joe Person
The Athletic's Joe Person joins Nikki, Colin & Josh to talk about - is there anything to talk about in Panthers land right now? - Cam Newton, what his move to injured reserve means moving forward, how it seems inevitable that we've seen Cam's last snap in a Panthers uniform, where the Panthers go from here and how the team's hand was truly forced as the injuries continued to mount up and the business of the NFL caught up with the best (or second-best, depending on who's listening) player to put on a Panthers uniform. They'll also talk about how it makes them feel and how it can be tough to be a realist even when the cold reality is staring you in the face. Oh, and Popeye's sandwiches. Then, the One Day Contract crew will talk whether this is Christian McCaffrey's team now, how the Panthers can fix their run defense - if they can - and what the recipe for a winning team is with Kyle Allen at the helm.

They'll also discuss Hot and Fiery Halloween Takes, whether or not going to bed at 8p is COOL or LAME, what exactly house pants are and what age you get to start wearing them and they'll play Cam to Kawann on Bradberry and Shaq Thompson and whether or not we're about to see some Cam Magic down the stretch of this season - could the Panthers actually miss the playoffs at 10-6?

Week 8 With Special Guest Al Wallace
Former Panther, ten year NFL vet and host of The Carolina Line Al Wallace joins the crew to talk buffet strategy, how to get that 'mortgage strength' and the best possible costumes to wear as a family - and yes, Al has dressed as Grandmama in the past - before they jump into a spirited round of Kyle vs. Cam and exactly why the narrative has turned this way after four wins for the Panthers' backup QB. Is the situation a bit 2015 Broncos-esque, are they having these discussions in Jacksonville or New Orleans and why does the national narrative drive these conversations? They'll also talk who the most impressive understudy has been this season, whether the Panthers will be buyers or sellers and talk about how scary the 49ers defense can be as Kyle Allen faces his toughest challenge. Then they'll play 'Real or Fake?' - that's still a working title - as they find the weirdest rules in football.

Colin, Josh and Nikki are LIVE in London (they're not) to talk which Panthers players - and coaches? - might be up for some awards later in the season and if CMC is a real MVP candidate or if we're just blowing smoke and building the narrative after Week 5. Plus, there's DROTYs DPOYs and CPOTYs to hand out, best podcaster awards and much more in the first segment. They'll also discuss who would go into their Hall of Honor, who should be in the Mall of Honor and we're not sure why Toot It and Boot It plays such a large part in the episode - they'll talk the Panthers playing complementary football, whether it's time to worry about Joey Slye, when it makes sense for injured Panthers to come back and mourn the injuries to Greg Little so early in his career. Plus, a look ahead to the Bucs, where Kyle Allen ranks among backup QBs in the NFL, play a Top Five that's actually a Top One and much more!

The crew welcomes WCNC Sports Director Nick Carboni to talk coffee addictions, what Ron Rivera's legacy is, whether you can separate Ron from Cam and much more talk about what Ron Rivera MIGHT be leaving behind if he's the winningest coach in Panthers history - and then let go. They'll also talk ways that Kyle Allen can hang onto the football, whether this defense has the chance to be a special unit and play a rousing game of Jaguar or Panther - which Nick did the wrong kind of research for. Oh, and they'll crack open the red wine and cigars to talk about Cam Newton's latest vlog.

Week 4 With Special Guest Nick Wilson
WFNZ's Nick Wilson joins the show to talk - what else - Kyle Allen's GREAT (was it the best game of all time?) performance on Sunday in Arizona, how Allen is doing what he's supposed to do and whether or not there's a quarterback controversy in Carolina. Is this a Bledsoe/Brady type situation or Bridgewater/Brees? How good does Kyle Allen have to play for there to be a question when/if Cam Newton comes back truly healthy? Then they'll talk about how the expectations for Will Grier make Kyle Allen not as big of a threat for Cam Newton, whether or not you can blame Ron Rivera for playing Cam Newton in Weeks 1 & 2, how to pronounce Lisfranc, Greg Little vs. Daryl Williams and where exactly Dr. Lisfranc was treating when he discovered the injury. They'll talk the Panthers defense, Donte Jackson, James Bradberry and play a special Playmakers Edition of 'Is This A Thing?' - oh and there's some silliness along the way, including a Ron Rivera Q&A and a fair amount of --- well ---- let's call it picture talk.

Week 3 With Special Guest Mike Rucker
Oh, boy. Former Panther and NFL ambassador Mike Rucker joins the crew to talk about whether the sky is falling for Cam Newton and the Panthers, whether it's the foot or the shoulder or both or if the biggest issue is in #1's mind, how Kyle Allen is the better choice than Cam Newton on Sunday and why injuries can start to gang up on you. After Andrew Luck, does every injury feel worse - or is it just Schroedinger's Foot that has people jumping to conclusions? Plus , is this an injury that could linger and even if he does come back, could the shoulder soreness come back and make his rehab/comeback all for naught? Plus, they'll use Mike's playing experience to gameplan for the Cardinals, Josh tries to get Ruck to say something rude about Al Wallace, Colin explains to the man with the third-most sacks in Panthers franchise history what "in the trenches" means and the triumphant return of YA BASIC! Oh, and Mike and Nikki love Nebraska. One Day Contract is a proud part of The Riot Network, powered by OrthoCarolina. Be sure to rate, review and subscribe where your local podcasts are sold!

Week 2 With Special Guest Walker Mehl
Walker Mehl, co-host of the Wake Up Call from ESPN730 The Game and - even though Josh won't admit it - host of the Locked on Hornets Podcast, joins the show to talk about which Week 1 storylines they were tracking, why it's not time to crown Lamar Jackson and how worried they are about Cam's shoulder - here's the reality: it's time to be worried. Until Cam throws the deep ball, we're always going to doubt whether or not he can do it. They'll then discuss whether the cap room they just created last week would be better served re-signing James Bradberry, bringing back Shaq Thompson or extending Christian McCaffrey until he turns 90. Or, in a cruel twist of fate, would the Panthers just run him into the ground and then let him go? Of course, they'll preview the Bucs game and try to decide where the best destination for Jameis Winston might be after he inevitably leaves Tampa Bay.

Brendan Marks of the Charlotte Observer joins the show to talk about new podcast ideas, why no one won the UNC/USC fight in the streets and whether or not it's cool to wave at Greg Van Roten when you see him at the grocery store.

Preseason Week 4 With Special Guest Josh Sims
Fox 46's Josh Sims joins the crew to talk about why this preseason is the most boring preseason ever for the Panthers, whether the roster is already decided and if it's not, where the greatest battles are. They'll talk about Andrew Luck's retirement and how it relates to the backup quarterbacks in Carolina - and why exactly Kyle Allen has this job. If you're one of those that wants to skip ramen talk, why Josh's wife only listens to the theme music and what the panel wanted to be when they grew up - it's bank teller, world class sprinter, He-Man and a senator in case you're wondering, you can skip to the Panthers talk at 13:30. The panel will examine the roster and why it's actually Jordan Scarlett who will determine whether Reggie Bonnafon makes this team, whether Ron Rivera is on the hot seat, how Cam Newton might be able to elongate his career and the easiest way for the Panthers to fix their kicker situation. Oh, and you know they'll have some fun, invent some t-shirts and talk about how Josh hits both sides of every argument --- all that PLUS THE RETURN OF CHILL, BRAH!?!?!?!? What an episode!

Preseason Week 1 With Special Guest Dennis Walsh
It's a Riot Network Reunion! Host of Not What You Think Dennis Walsh joins the show to talk whether or not we should be relying on the national media to stay up to date on Panthers news - we shouldn't, what the ceiling is for Curtis Samuel - the roof, and what exactly a #spuckie is. If you're just aching for Panthers news and want to skip the Spuckie talk, the chatter about which team looks the best on Hard Knocks, a lot of Madden talk and more nonsense, you can skip to about the 17:45 mark. Once the Panthers talk starts, the panel and Denn will talk Cam's health, where certain players fit into the new 3-4 base, and whether Christian McCaffrey can be the #1 running back in the NFL - they'll also do a full preview of the Week 1 preseason game, getting hypothetically angry, who they're most excited to see in Chicago, fun uniform combinations and which spots on the roster are actually available.

Training Camp With Special Guest Max Henson

If you want to skip right to the Panthers talk, skip past the first 13 minutes, but be warned - you'll be missing out on the best Mexican food in Charlotte and why Colin is a sucker for 'White Gold'. Once the Panthers talk starts though, the crew talks whether fans are writing off Greg Little too fast, how Ross Cockrell vs. Rashaan Gaulden isn't as set in stone as you think and how the team website has changed over the years and the palpable feeling of change that happens on a daily basis with David Tepper as owner of the Panthers. They'll also touch on Will Grier, why right now is the perfect time for optimism, Greg Van Roten and Matt Paradis, who they think will be the starting nickel corner - shrug emoji? - and why it smells a certain way inside the Roaring Riot Podcast Studio.

Once they jump into Panthers talk, they'll talk about how this is the beginning of a second act for Cam Newton - at least it has to be if he's going to be the Hall of Fame QB everyone expects, how he can earn the biggest contract in NFL history , when he should sign it, and when it's most important for him to be healthy. They'll then breakdown the biggest camp battles facing the Panthers, including an underrated offensive line battle, the dreaded free safety talk and why nickel cornerback might end up being the most important slot you're not worried enough about.

If you're not into the banter, they start talking football at the 10 minute mark, but you'll be missing out on Game of Thrones hate, the panel's top three favorite shows of all time - including the phrase "I'm debating between Family Matters and 60 Minutes" being uttered for the first time in the history of podcasting. Then Erik illuminates the panel on what kind of benefits South Carolina actually gave to the Panthers, whether that was a good move on their part, how Two States, One Team is more of a business model than we think and how much the tax breaks actually gave to Mr. Tepper. And don't think Colin, Josh and Nikki let Erik go without analyzing the financial implications of a new stadium, whether that new stadium is a possibility or an inevitability and how THE PANTHERS ARE NOT MOVING FROM CHARLOTTE.

Co-Host of WFNZ's Wilson & Parcell Nick Wilson joins the show to talk next week's draft and when is too early to draft quarterback - Colin, Josh & Nick all have some very differing opinions on what this pick means to the future of the Panthers franchise. If you're just here for the football talk, it starts at the 12:30 mark, but you'll miss out on why no one's watching Game of Thrones, who exactly is the big dawg, and why Steelers fans are like Duke fans. Then they'll jump into quarterback talk and whether the Panthers or anyone knows if Cam Newton's shoulder is OK - and why it's not fair for the Panthers to tell the public about the franchise quarterback's health by announcing their second round pick. Which quarterback does each member of the panel like best if the Panthers do decide to pull the trigger? So many questions entering next week's draft and they'll answer NONE of them: Why is free safety the shooting guard of Bank of America Stadium? Why shouldn't the Panthers draft Montez Sweat?

They also discuss whether it's time to re-examine the Dave Gettleman Era here in Carolina, why he maybe shouldn't be taking the blame for his actions in New York, and why the Matt Kalil situation was an unwinnable proposition for the Panthers this offseason.
