If and only if we stuck solely with the offense I could see a valid arguement.

Cam

Smitty

Jstew

Dwill

Tolbert

Lafell

Gettis

Olsen

Gross

Kallil

That is just as talented as any team in the league player to player. The arguement comes when you look at the group as a whole and the system it employs. With chud running the show and all those weapons at his disposal I'm really wondering what in the world 13 d-coordinators are gonna come up with to stop it. Quite honestly in the 20 years of really watching football I've never seen a total package quite like this.

Just think cam under center, Tolbert lined up behind him with both Stewart and Williams flanking him. Smitty and lafell/gettis/Adams on the outside. Move smitty across the formation and snap the ball. What do you do?

You named 12 what? Certainly not players because Mark Tolbert, Ryan Kallil, and John Beason aren't the name of any players

you think eli is more talented than cam?

My remark, as short as it was, was directed at the elementary use of the English language. A place where children have not yet mastered the difference between your and you're. Things of that nature.

However, I'm as optimistic as anyone when it comes to the team and particularly the offense but to annoint them the most talented roster in the NFL is a bit of a stretch. Is Eli more talented? No, but he's more accomplished. I do think Rodgers is as talented and then you list the stars in that team it's not hard to see why they've been so good the last several years. There are probably ten teams that could boast a dozen very good players.

This is completely subjective and arguing over who has the best roster is fruitless, but it's hard to dismiss the defending Champs.

ill give you the packers.. (although i disagree with a couple names) but not the patriots. there is some big names on the list, but over all package, Ours is better.

either way, it proves a point that we have one of the best rosters in the NFL. look at the three teams we have compared to so far.. the champs, the packers, and the patriots.. arguably the top 3 teams in the NFL right now.

You're nitpicking, the Pats have a better team and I didn't even name others that I should have. You're in denial now.

I can go with Detroit, Houston, San Diego, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Hell Cincinnati. There goes your point..

Cam Newton

Deangelo WIlliams

Steve Smith

Jonathan Stewart

Mirk Tolbert

Ryan Kalil

Greg Olsen

Jon Beason

thomas davis

luke kuechly

Chris Gamble

Charles Johnson

i mean... really... LOL.. i challenge ANYONE to compile a list of 12 players ALL from one team that is as good as that list...

and im not gonna make another list but if you had to take whats left... man we have some REALLY talented players on this team..

after you sit back and really look at the names and the numbers, its actually quite impressive.. for the first time in a few seasons, i can say im fully behind the panthers front office..

for now.

ill wait..

I've thought about this for a second...

Texans

Matt Schaub

Arian Foster

Ben Tate (Who had nearly 1000 yards)

Lawrence Vickers

Andre Johnson

Owen Daniels (Who had seven more receptions and over 100 more receiving yards than Olsen)

Chris Meyers

Brian Cushing

J.J. Watt

Whitney Mercilus (A rookie who may be just as good as Kuechly - it's a push, but it's certainly possible)

Johnathon Joseph

Glover Quinn Jr.

You can argue with this a bit, but overall it's a very similar team to the Panthers in my opinion. They have a shutdown corner, good linebackers, a solid receiving tight-end, a few respectable defensive lineman, a two fast/reliable backs and a nice fullback, and a potential hall of fame receiver.

Saints*

Drew Brees

Darren Sproles

Pierre Thomas

Marques Colston

Jimmy Graham

Jahri Evans

Ben Grubbs

Aubrayo Franklin

Curtis Lofton

David Hawthorne

Jabari Greer

Malcolm Jenkins

And before you argue "Pierre Thomas sucks! He's no damn good!" he averaged 5.1 yards a carry, and they have a good three-headed rushing attack developing in their own right. Will Smith and Vilma could replace Hawthorne (who has 100+ tackles in the past three seasons) and Thomas on this list, and ultimately the only weak player would be Jenkins, and he's not bad.

Cowboys

Tony Romo

Demarco Murray

Dez Bryant

Miles Austin

Jason Witten

Doug Free (He's solid, albeit not Gross manning the LT position)

Tyron Smith

Anthony Spencer

Demarcus Ware

Jay Ratliff

Sean Lee

Brandon Carr

Morris Claiborne

They have a lot of unproven talent in the secondary, but I think every Panther fan before the draft secretly was hoping Claiborne would fall to us, not Kuechly. Doug Free isn't great, but he's not bad. The rest are definitely talents I would love to have.

Falcons

Michael Turner

Roddy White

Julio Jones

Tony Gonzalez

Todd Mclure

Tyson Clabo

Sean Witherspoon

John Abraham

Jonathan Babineaux

Brent Grimes

Asante Samuel

Thomas Decoud/Ray Edwards/Matt Ryan/Dunta Robinson

This is a stacked team and I couldn't decide who to fill that 12th slot with...

Eagles

Michael Vick

Lesean Mccoy

Jeremy Maclin

Desean Jackson

Jason Peters (He's not healthy, but he was the best LT in football last year without question (in my mind, of course))

Evan Mathis

Todd Herremans

Jason Babin

Trent Cole

Cullen Jenkins

Nnamdi Asomugha

Dominique-Rodgers Cromartie

(You can also add Brent Celek, OJ Atogwe, DeMeco Ryans, or MIke Patterson to fill in Peters's shoes)

I'm finished, but the Steelers, Ravens, Giants, Bengals, Chargers (debatably), Packers, Bears, Patriots, Jets, Bills (think of their free-agents), 49ers, maybe Chiefs, Broncos, Titans, Lions all have twelve players.

That leaves the Browns, Jaguars, Raiders, Seahawks (besides Lynch, Rice, Clemons, and their corners/safeties, I can't think of anyone else), Cardinals (same as Seattle, although at different positions), Vikings, Bucs (although they're getting there), Dolphins, Redskins, Colts, and Rams who can't match us according to your rubric.

I may be wrong, but this isn't the way we should be thinking moving forward, especially if you look at the list of players of the five teams I analyzed: The Eagles, Falcons, Saints*, and Cowboys, who have more than enough to excel, and they under-accomplished (two didn't even make the postseason, another only scored two points in the postseason, and another lost a shootout against Alex Smith). The Texans, on the other-hand, had a lot of talent, although some star linebackers were hurt (and their quarterback/wide receiver were injured for major parts of their season), and they over-accomplished. I think, if anything, solid depth eclipses star players on certain positions.

Before Tl;dr, basically I nitpicked some rosters, found a lot of good players and refuted the original poster's claim. I'm not playing troll, just being realistic/objective.
