The Carolina Panthers are an underachieving team. They have regressed from a team that finished 6-10 last season , to a team that is currently 3-8 and does not look like they are going to equal last season's win total. The Panthers don't appear toÂ have made any improvement in any phases of the game. Quarterback Cam NewtonÂ has notÂ improved sinceÂ coming off his Rookie Of The Year campaign of 2011. The Panthers have invested in their backfield by giving a little over $80 million dollars total in contract extensions to DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart, and yet Cam Newton leads the team in rushing yards. Combined, Williams and Stewart have rushed for 628 yards which is only 182 yards more than the quarterback. There is something fundamentally wrong with that. The defense has not shown significant improvement either allowing 347.1 YPG and 24.1 PPG as compared toÂ the 366.2 YPG and 26.8 PPG last year. All this falls on the head coach Ron Rivera.But there is a solution to thi...
