1. KB13 catches a game winning TD.

2. Gano hits a 60+ yd FG.

3. Underwood becomes reliable deep threat for Cam.

4. Brandon Williams ends the season as 2nd TE.

5. Thomas Decoud becomes a Pro Bowler or plays well enough to get snubbed.

SCP finds a way to poop on Kaepernick's head. Book it.

1.   Benjamin another FSU bust, Avant will lead the WR's.

2.   Stewart on IR by week six.

3.   Cam gets his belly full of Shula's playcalling at some point and airs his frustration.

4.   Godfrey makes us forget about Captain Toast in short order.

5.   Bell a sieve at T, but Chandler turns into a beast.

1.Our offensive line is surprisingly adequate with solid contribution from Turner, Kugbila. Chandler becomes an adequate LT.      Strong in the running game.

2. Josh Norman and Melvin White become the starting duo by week 7.

3. We once again have a surprisingly solid secondary.

4. Cam throws for 30 TDs

5. Stewart runs for 1,000 yds.

1) Proving something to himself and family after his mother's death … DLo has an unexpected breakout season in honor of her.

2) Cam progresses heavily as a pocket passer.

3) KB will not be as advertised.

4) Keek becomes the bonafide #1 LB in the game (IMO he already is, but most outside of Carolina won't agree).

5) Roman Harper finds his old Pro Bowl form again behind our front 7.

How could you have all that offensive success and then fire the OC?

 

That's exactly how little faith I have in Shula. We could have a top 5 run game, but if our passing attack is in the bottom 16, I could see and would hope that Shula gets fired. Cam showed us in 2011 and 2012 that he can be an effective down the field passer. We need playcalling that can get us back to 4,000 yards per year passing, not 3.300. As efficient as Cam was last year, those were Dalton numbers, when we know Cam is capable and should be posting yardage totals closer to Stafford's.

1 posltive versus 5 negative.

Pretty impressive considering the OP only asked for 5 predictions.

Lol

Should have just omitted the chandler part.

1. Kelvin Benjamin almost hits 1,000 yards and 10+ TDs, earning RoTY honors.

2. A RB not named Williams, Tolbert, or Stewart will be our most productive RB

3. The OL will be noticeably better than last year, much to everybody's confusion

4. Cam will be responsible for a 90+ yard scoring play

5. NFC Championship game appearance

Unless we have a league worst D....a top 5 rush attack will almost certainly give is a bottom half pass attack under any QB who runs a running O.

The number of Panther fans will actually be greater than the number of Steeler trash for SNF.

The difference between 3,300 and 4,000 yards is about 45 yards a game. So if Shula can get Cam those extra 45 yards passing a game he can stay?

If we are running the ball effectively, we are passing the ball less. Which means less yards for Cam. Now, if the running game falters and Cam has to throw more? Then his yardage will go up. But we as a team may suffer.

We are not a team that wants Stafford's yardage. We want to run the ball, use the clock, throw when necessary, and hit a big play occasionally. Those don't lead to great QB stats. Sorry.

You sound more like a Cam fan than a Panther fan with that line of thinking.

I don't mean to say that we need to have a certain number of passing yards to be an effective offense, it's just that we should be able to impose our will on opposing defenses any way we choose whether running or throwing. So many of our series last year went run, run, try to pass, Cam scrambles for a first down. It was a little too Jeff Davidson for my liking.

 

Our typical win last year played out as follows: don't let the other team score in the 1st, gain a 10 to 14 pt lead, use stifling defense and 8 minute drives to close it out, game winning drive as needed. I don't know the exact stat on this, but I think we played with a lead more than nearly any other team in the league last year. Yeah there were the games like the Dolphins game of the Pats game where we got behind late and pulled it out, but then there were games like Cards game or the first Saints game were we got behind by multiple scores early, and you saw our offense flounder. 

 

Which brings me to the game that epitomizes why Shula should have been and likely will be fired, the playoff game. We wanted to run the ball, use the clock, throw when necessary and hit a big play occasionally in that game. Only problem was we were playing a team that wasn't going to let us do what we wanted, and we lost. We need to be able to impose our will whenever we want, and more importantly, however we want, on the ground or in the air.

 

The moment that gave me hope for this offense was the end of the second half of the Giants game. We were up 10 nothing and we go no huddle, two minute drill to score before the half, just because we could. It felt like we were channeling the 2007 Patriots running up the score. It's too bad we didn't see more of that type of offense throughout the year, because that practice could have given us the confidence and experience to execute when we needed to. 

 

So sorry if I cam off as a Cam Newton fan boy (I am), wanting better stats from our QB, but more importantly I'm a fan of points, points scored by our offense, early, often and when it counts. Our players' talent aside, I don't think what we saw last year in terms of play calling and scheme is going to cut it when are going up against he Niners or Hawks in the NFCCG. That's why I predict Shula will be fired.

The thing about that 9ers game though. Cam said give me the ball. They gave him the ball, and he was tripped by Chandler. (I think.) Just dumb luck. We very well should have scored 2 TDs early in that game. We get those 2 scores and it could be a totally different outcome.

We wanted to impose our will on them at that point. We just didn't have the horses up front to get the job done. Hopefully, with Turner added to the mix. Those kind of plays will be more successful.

Lots of folks feel like you do. Some feel like we were headed in the right direction. Better O-line play can definitely make a difference. But as a whole, our Offense did a fine job last year. With sub par talent.

We very well could be better Offensively this year. If so, we are going to be right in the thick of things. Again.
