Now that Cam Newton is the Panthers QB, there has been a lot of hope spread around the Carolinas. Is it false hope? Do the Panthers really have what it takes to go all the way in the next 2 years?
Yes, if they can make improvements on defense. They had one of the best season-to-season offensive turnarounds in history this year, and they were 6-10 despite having a terrible defense against both the pass and the run (24th in opponent passing yards, 25th in opponent rushing yards). Of the 10 losses, only 4 were by more than one score, so they were in some close games. They had a quality win over Houston and played close games against the Saints and Packers.
Injuries killed there defence. Davis and beason were out again also more key guys had nagging injuries. We did see cam wake up steve smith to his pro bowl form. Our divison is so tough I dont see them winning it in the next 2 years but a wild card could be in your future!
Yeah, they did lose a few close games they could have won. Plus, they did put 18 players on IR. The Saints and Falcons are always tough during the regular season, and the Bucs are going to have an all new staff. The NFC South is probably the toughest and most mysterious division. I mean, you never know who is gonna be first or last. So it will be tough. I'd be happy to get in on a wild card. That's when they have known to be best. The bye week kills them for some reason.
I agree that the NFC South might be the toughest division. They can go to the Super Bowl if they run and play defense when they get to the playoffs. They can get to the Super Bowl if they get in as a wild card game by having different players in each playoff game make big plays.

Who is a Real Super Bowl Contender? the Atlanta Falcons or Carolina Panthers?Football season is almost at the halfway point, and there are still several undefeated teams. Some of them you expected to be on top, but others are a big surprise. Are either the Falcons or Panthers true contenders?

The Giants and Patriots will face each other in the Super Bowl for the second time in five years. The Giants were 9-7 during the regular season but seemed to figure things out just in time for the playoffs. The Patriots haven't lost a game since a last-minute comeback by Eli Manning and the Giants...

I know I will be. I got the Giants in Pick Em and the Giants RB Andre Brown on my fantasy team. He should get the majority of carries since Ahmad Bradshaw is out. My opponent has Hakeem Nicks, who isn't going to play. I hope my opponent doesn't realize he should make a change before the game...
