*$0.02 to be awarded in the form of a baseless opinion from a poster to be named later who probably didn't know "Carolina" is not the name of a single state.

**Cookie to be delivered at a later date. Cookie may be substituted for "nothing" at the discretion of the prize committee. No actual cookies realized from this contest.

I think it's going to be tough to make the playoffs next year but it can be done.

Packers

Lions

Bears

Saints

Falcons

Panthers

Giants

Cowboys

Eagles

All those teams will be fighting for 5 spots

but like each year.....injury/bad luck/unexplainable changes.....the list of teams you have penciled in as the contenders never pan out accurate. See you didn't even include SF.....b/c no one thought about them prior to the start of the year and had Philly in the SB. Right now, you can go ahead and bet good money one of those teams will easily have a losing record next year. All it takes is as little as 1 injury.

Many are giving The Golden Calf of Bristol all the praises and pretty much all the credit for Bronco's turn around despite the reality. Many are patting Dalton on his back for the Bengals' success despite the obvious fact that he's completely reliant on A.J. Green. But, you seem to have a hard time with some saying that Cam is the reason for the Panthers offense drastic turn around despite that fact that he is.

Could he have done is by himself? That question is an obvious NO. Has his presence, work ethics, and confidence rejuvenated the energy level of such vets as Smitty and Shockley? Yes. Does the team still have a long way to go to become a more balanced and effective team, especially in the winning department? Heck yes.

you keep the coordinator and players the same.....and insert Jimmy Clausen. Carolina would have the 31st or 32nd ranked offense.

When did ESPN talk about the Panthers? It's all been The Golden Calf of Bristol and Romo.

I don't care about the West because likely only 1 team gets in.

Obviously something is going to happen to a few of those teams but they all looked solid this year and are fighting for spots.

I give Chud a lot of props for the turnaround, but let's be honest here. If Jimmy was running this offense with the same pieces, we would be lucky to sniff the top 25.

With Anderson, we might hit 18 to 20.

Don't underestimate the impact of Cam's mobility. The ability to run and pass like he does makes him one of a kind.

Edit: CRA beat me to it.

True but if we get slated with the NFC and AFC West as our non-divisional games we will have an advantage over all those guys (except New Orleans and Atlanta) :cool:

Are you being sarcastic? Because that dude was terrible and kicked off ESPN for multiple dick picks.

He was awesome. He called John Clayton the "crypt keeper." Doesn't get much better than that.

whytogo, cra and marguide are with me...

Yes there have been slight improvements on offense, the TEs, the staff, but the majority of our offensive turn-around is due to Cam. Haters hate on all you want.

I think the Panthers will only play 1 NFC West team (most likely Seahawks or Cardinals) next year. Pretty sure the Panthers get the NFC East next year but they are probably a worst division than the NFC West right now.

I call bullpoo. Though it might not even be top 10 but the talent this team has, we'd be much better than we were last year regardless.

Anderson 18-20? lol, what? We have more talent than that Cleveland 2007 team and they were top 10... Even if teams have figured Anderson out a bit, I still say we'd be much better than 18-20.

I think you guys give this offense too little credit. Not trying to take away from Cam here but we've got two of the best running backs in the league, two elite tight ends, one of the best receivers in the game, and an innovative OC. Sure, we'd not be as good without Cam, but I think we'd still have a decent offense. This offense has come together because the pieces work well together, but no one piece is the sole reason for the turnaround.

I guarantee you that if you put Cam on that 2010 team he looks pedestrian at best. Smitty was burned out as much by the coaching staff as the players.
