Just wondering what you guys think... looking at the amount of talent this team has on defense and how the offense now has more than just Steve Smith, I have to say yes. Probably won't be considered better than the SB team unless we win it....

Better run blocking, CB's and a true #1 WR and not just the best Panther's team. We could be on some next level dynasty shit.

The SB team was a team of destiny not necessarily the best or most talented. I say this team may be the best balance of talent, skill, veteran leadership and intangibles we have every had.

Long story short yes.

Probably, but that's not really saying that much...

best defense, but I don't really know if I'd say the best team.  2005, hell even 2008's offenses "felt" better at the time, but I think this is the most dangerous team we've had because I think this offense could erupt against anyone.

I think this is the bests all-around team.

 

The 2005 offense was better....and the 2003 defense might have been better.

 

But as a whole...yes.

Kinda similar to the Superbowl team comparison thread.

With our offensive line the way it is I can't think so.

 

 

 

I think the 03 team would probably beat us, if not beat us badly. Young Peppers would be athletic enough to contain Cam. 03 WR core was better, and the 03 defense may not have been as good but they were close enough.

 

If we had an o-line that could run block I'd say yes, otherwise no.

 

 

If we had Cam in 2008 we would have been unbeatable.

2003 is easily better.  Not sure about 96 offense, but the defense was better then too.

The 03 team would beat this squad handily.

We are trending towards YES I would say. 2003 it just seemed like a team of destiny. 2005 got hot at the right time. 1997 was all heart.

 

This team has it all except a big time #1 WR... The defense just doesn't allow shit.

No.

We are one injury away from being not a good football team.

Even it we lost Jake in 2003..... We could run and play D. Our offense would implode without Newton.

Our OL sucks and we can't run. Cam creates and helps out everyone.

Team around Newton is FAR weaker than than the cast around Delhomme in 2003. significantly weaker

1996 was ALL about the defense. As good as this year's is, I don't know how it could be better than the '96 Panthers. That was one of the best defenses in football in the '90s. The offense was solely Wesley Walls. 

 

2003 was the most balanced team we've ever had, but how do we factor in all the roid users on the offensive line?

 

2005 was a one-man show: Steve Smith. It was one of the best years a receiver had in the decade, if not THE best, but the team ultimately wasn't that great.

 

2008 had the most impressive showing in the regular season, but featured Bad Jake for most of the back half of the season that was covered up by Double Trouble in their prime.

 

2013 is most like the '96 team imo. Championship level defense, offense full of guys efficient at moving the sticks. But the '13 offense is ultimately way better than '96. Cam vs. Kerry Collins? Haha. Better receivers and offensive line too.

 

So......

 

2003 > 2013 > 1996 > 2008 > 2005

 

And there's a very real chance 2013 could end up at #1 by the time it's all over.

Na.... we would shut down their run game and then put the game on Delhomme's shoulders alone. On top of that Cam would be busting runs all day on 'em. Don't forget we lost to Vick that year.

Every time during the regular season that the '03 Panthers played a mobile QB, they lost.

You're selling 2005 short. We had a good running game and the defense was ranked 2 or 3 that year.

We are the Oakland As/Moneyball of the NFL. A roster full of one year journeymen we got on the cheap, started out 1-2 with fans calling for the HCs head, went on to win 20 straight. Go watch the movie Moneyball, we are the Oakland As.
