Carolina Panthers: Terrible division only hope for terrible play

The 2014 season clearly hasn’t gone the way the Carolina Panthers envisioned it. However, there is hope, and that hope may lie in abysmal play of NFC South. The NFL’s worst division has combined for 13 wins, and is only one of two divisions without at least 20 combined wins (AFC South has 14 wins). The Carolina Panthers season woes have been well documented this year, ranging...

Panthers That Need to Step Up Now and Beyond

1. Byron Bell (or a replacement left tackle)Cam Newton has been sacked 32 times this season and the tackles have been the weak link on that line. Ryan Kalil has been a rock inside and missing Amini Silatolu for a chunk of the year has not helped.

I thought the Atlanta Falcons would be significantly better, the New Orleans Saints would hold steady, the Carolina Panthers while maybe not as good as last year would still be a hard team to play against and the if the Tampa Bay Buccaneers...
