Here is a look at the top stories being discussed on the other three NFC South blogs on SB Nation.

Atlanta Falcons (via The Falcoholic)

  • Another former LSU Tiger in Atlanta? The Falcons count outstanding linebacker Deion Jones and wide receiver Russel Gage among their LSU Tigers contingent. Now, picking at number 16 in the upcoming NFL draft, Atlanta might be able to add talented pass rusher and former Bayou Bengal K’Lavon Chaisson to their roster. I will be performing a few Voodoo dances to make sure this does not happen.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (via Bucs Nation)

  • What the hell is going on out there? Yes, not to be outdone by the Dirty Birds, the Bucs too have just unveiled new uniforms. Let me tell you something, the competition is fierce between Atlanta and Tampa Bay...for best-dressed team in the NFC South.


Carolina Panthers (via Cat Scratch Reader)

  • Two Panthers make NFL’s All Decade Team: On a list that did not include New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, former Carolina Panthers Luke Kuechly and Julius Peppers made it. As disappointing as the Brees’ snub was, it is hard to argue with Kuechly and Peppers selections. Both players are very likely headed to Canton someday.

  • Carolina braces for defensive woes in 2020: Gone is defensive-minded head coach Ron Rivera, enter offense-oriented Matt Rhule. Add to that the retirement of Luke Kuechly, and the stingy Panthers’ defense we came to know and loathe the last few years may be gone for good.
