Ryan Kalil predicts the Carolina Panthers will win the Super Bowl this season - and he put his money where his mouth is to prove it. The Panthers three-time Pro Bowl center took out a full page advertisement in the Charlotte Observer on Wednesday boldly declaring fans will be rewarded for their unwavering support with a ''one hundred-percent, sterling silver victory - the Lombardi Trophy.'' That's a bold prediction for a team coming off a 6-10 season that hasn't won a playoff game since 2005. But Kalil believes in his teammates. In the 178-word letter Kalil says something special is happening in Carolina. He says there's ''a sense of urgency, a winning attitude that I haven't seen before'' and ''fans will see it in the way that we play.''
