AP Pro32 comments about Panthers

Associated Press  |  Last updated July 31, 2012
Comments on the Carolina Panthers by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses): CAROLINA PANTHERS (20) Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 14): Should I say Cam-olina Panthers? 2011 NFL Offensive Rookie of Year Cam Newton is just scratching surface of how good a quarterback he can become. Bob Glauber (Newsday, 18: Sophomore slump for Cam Newton? He's about to find out. Would help this kid if his defense plays the run even moderately better. Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 14): Blessed with powerful line in front of dynamic Cam Newton. John Lynch (Fox Sports, 16): Cam Newton is even better in Year 2 and defense that struggled mightily in 2012 gets some help from Jon Beason, Thomas Davis and rookie LB Luke Kuechly. Consistent pass rush must emerge to become a force as defense and as team. Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 18): With Cam Newton, DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart and now Mike Tolbert, Panthers should have best rushing attack in NFL. Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 19): Cam Newton was stunning last year. Defense needs help. Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 20): If Cam Newton takes another step, and if defense makes strides, Panthers will be far from an easy out. Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 22): Panthers' offense will not suffer from second-year setback by Cam Newton, but can defense come through? Still questions at defensive tackle and in secondary. Chris Berman (ESPN, 22): Year 2 of Cam Newton like looking forward to Christmas. Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 23): Still third-best team in its division. Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 25): Cam Newton is special but the D is ordinary. --- Online: http://bigstory.ap.org/NFL-Pro32 and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL
