This is like year 4 or 5 in doing this so indulge me.

Panthers win 10 games

4 Pro Bowlers

2 games get flexed

Cam throws about 5 more td's and 7 less int's

No rb will run for more than 700 yds

Yet, Panthers will lead the league in rushing td's with 28

Smitty catches 7 less passes but scores 4 more td's

Def finishes at 15 total

Panthers win a wild card game at home vs who else...the Cowboys.

Which games do you think will get flexed because it's only from weeks 11 onward and the only games we might get flexed could be Falcons, Saints*, and maybe Chargers...not because of us but because the other teams we play are poo.

Okay here it goes...

Panthers finish 9-7 and miss playoffs and ties Atlanta for "last", while division rival (and oft-talked about) Tampa Bay Buccaneers finish 10-6 ahead of them and make the playoffs along with New Orleans at 10-6.

No one's talking about the Bucs and could be the dark horse in our division...that's how the NFL works it seems... teams that get all the hype (Panthers) don't live up to it and the one's who don't, turn heads and put together surprising seasons...

I've been saying this for a couple months now, I think we see Alex Smith and niners in the playoffs. Makes for a great story line about all that sh1t talking a few months ago.

The Browns go to the Superbowl, after that I flush.

Cam Throws for 31 TD's and rushes for 9.

Smith squeaks by with 1,012 yards and 7 TD's

LaFell takes the bull by the horns and scores 6 TD's with 893 yards to back him up.

Break out TE Greg Olsen shocks the world and scores 10 TD's with 1,132 yards in his wake.

Our defense continues to shock the world by being a top 10 defense and has the most turnovers of any team.

Luke Kuechly runs wild with over 100 tackles, 6 of them for loss, 7 forced fumbles, 2 fumble recoveries, 3 interceptions, 1 TD via INT, and 2.5 sacks, going on to win the Defensive rookie of the year award.

Josh Norman awakens and becomes that solid #2 CB, leaving behind little captain and garners 8 pass deflections, 40+ tackles, and of course a whopping 6 INT's for his rookie year.

Panthers end up winning 10 games and fight for a wild card spot, they win the first game on the road, but fall short in the second game.

Yeah, I think I'm done.

Individual Predictions:

Cam will surprise by throwing for 4600 yards and 41 TDs and 9 rushing TD's with less rushing yardage (carrying me to fantasy glory while he's at it)

Stewart will earn the majority of the carries by midseason and fishes in the top 5 in rushing yards (over 1200 yards)

We have 2 1,000 yard receivers (Smitty and Olsen)

Beason will overtake Willis in the pro-bowl balloting and finish ahead of Willis

Gamble will pick off 10 passes, CJ will get 13.5 sacks.

Godfrey will make the pro-bowl and have a solid season, with 85 tackles, 3 sacks, and 4 INT's (with 1 TD)

Team Predictions:

We will have a punt return for a TD...before the bye week.

We sneak in the playoffs as the 5 seed and knock off the 49ers in a playoff thriller

We finish 10-6, beating out the Saints* for a playoff spot

Top 5 in total Offense, 13th ranked defense by points allowed a game, Special Teams is raked 20th

We start off 4-0
