Carolina Panthers: Having Panthers as a nickname is like owning a 1990 Ford Taurus: It fills its purpose, but there's nothing remotely interesting about it.



lulz.

I don't think the team actually uses the Panther enough in its packaging. Sure it's the logo, but that's about the end of it. The Vikings have their whole thing, and the Eagles and Bucs are also good at working in the stuff their team is named after. Even the Falcons pay tribute to their mascot by flying high above the radar and diving at the last minute.

Panthers are awesome animals and they should work that in more to how the team is presented.

Could be because there aren't actually any panthers in the Carolinas.

LA is to an NFL team as a desperate fat chick with huge tits is to the hot guy in high school. Y'all get fugged, degraded, then left.

I like our name. Scary animals are always the best nicknames.

Think about it like this...would you want to be locked in a small room with a Panther or a Lion or a Bear? Or even a Giant or a Pirate for that matter?

Compare that with a Duck (Oregon) or a Rooster (SC). Not very scary at all. Most likely they would end up saving you a trip to the market to find something for dinner.

So no, we shouldn't be anywhere on this list.

I think it's more about the boring factor, not the scary factor. Thankfully, the Bobcats made the list as well. Now THAT is a horrible name.

My High School was the Jets. Another in the same county are the Rockets.

Terrible terrible.
