Overview

The Carolina Panthers shocked the NFL in 2003. Only two seasons removed from a disastrous 1-15 season, they won three straight playoff games and roared all the way to their first-ever Super Bowl appearance before losing in the final seconds in one of the best Super Bowls ever played. Tales from the Carolina Panther's Sideline is the behind-the-scenes story not only of that extraordinary Panthers team, but also of the men who have shaped Carolina's past and will determine its future. Jake Delhomme, Steve Smith, Sam Mills, John Fox, Mike Rucker, Kevin Donnalley, Bill Rosinski, and many others sat down for exclusive interviews with author Scott Fowler, ensuring that there are many stories about the Panthers that readers have never heard before. From Delhomme's brief stint as a karaoke singer to the reason Steve Smith walks to every Panthers home game to the real story about Mill's courageous battle with cancer, Tales from the Carolina Panthers Sideline brings the Panther's biggest stars into vivid focus. Says Tony Kornheiser, star of ESPN's Pardon the Interruption: "The Carolina Panthers captured our imagination like no other sports team in 2003. This team has an incredible story that must be told--and nobody can tell it as well as Scott Flower." Not just a celebration of the Panthers' 2003 seasons, Tales from the Carolina Panthers Sideline also features anecdotes about the Panthers' early years. From the team's birth in 1995, a host of memorable characters has passed through the locker room. They include a future reality TV star, a head coach who kept his distance from everyone, and a player who loved to saunter in on Sundays wearing platform heels and a fur coat. Bulging withbite-sizedanecdotes both funny and poignant, this book is a must-read for every Carolina Panthers fan. It is a fun-filled, unforgettable look at a team that has risen to the top of the NFL--and one poised to remain there for years to come.

    Tales from the Carolina Panthers Sideline

    'Tales from the Carolina Panthers Sideline' is a must for fans of the Carolina Panthers and fans of the NFL in general. Scott Fowler, who is a mainstay in the Charlotte Observer sports section, skillfully recaps the magical 2003 Carolina Panthers super bowl season. Using a unique style, Fowler re-creates the 2003 season, and also takes a trip back into the sometimes checkered past of the Franchise. Fowler, who co-authored the fantastic 1997 book 'Year of the Cat' recapping the second season of the franchise, has worked his magic once again. I had the pleasure of attending a pair of Panther home games in 2003, including the playoff win over the Cowboys. 'Tales from the Carolina Panthers Sideline' makes me feel like I attended all of the games. Rob Eastwood News/Sports Director WJRI Radio, Lenoir North Carolina

    Tales from the Carolina Panthers Sideline

    This is exactly how I felt as I read Scott Fowler's book, 'Tales From The Carolina Panthers Sideline.' It was as though I was once again pacing thru the ups and downs of the last ten years of this team's existence. Scott Fowler was able to take me to the sidelines and locker room of this exciting and mercurial team. I have been a faithful reader of Scott Fowler's columns over the years and felt certain my personal time devoted to reading this book would be time well spent, and it was. Scott presents an unbiased viewpoint of the Panthers team, warts and all. I feel as though I now know the players, coaches and owner in a way the average fan wishes they could. The journey through the storied 2003-2004 season which took the Panthers to an appearance in the Super Bowl has been captured by Scott Fowler in such a way that any Panthers fan will want to relive the ride again and again. And with Tales From The Carolina Panthers Sideline, they can. A MUST HAVE FOR ANY FOOTBALL FAN! ENJOY!!

    Excellent book for any football fan, not just the Panthers

    Very readable account of the team's 2003 Superbowl run with insight into the character of a lot of the key figures on the team. Also a good amount of info and key moments in Panther history for those who have only recently converted to the Cardiac Cats. A quick, fun read.

    Tales from the Carolina Panthers Sideline

    'Tales from the Carolina Panthers Sideline' told me everything I needed to know about this team -- and more than I ever thought to ask? Who knew Jake Delhomme was a great karaoke singer or John Fox a wave-chasing surfer in his younger days or what Steve Smith really meant when he crossed the end zone in that arms-outstretched pose against St. Louis? If you know a Panther fan, HE HAS TO HAVE THIS BOOK!!!
