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.

That is one of the ten worst lists in the history of lists.

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.

    • Steve Beuerlein's pointing about not holding on to the ball so long was interesting to me. Some of you who remember when Beuerlein was here will remember that he took a straight beating in '99 and '00 and he also had a tendency to hold onto the ball for too long. It might be smart for Cam to listen to someone who had 21 surgeries from football injuries because of this. I love me some Cam and I want to see him as the starting QB for the Panthers for a long time to come.
    • As an LSU fan, I've seen nearly all of Fournette's games and he is the real deal. He was the best running back on the team. It does not take a genius to run the read option running attack and most of the work is on the Qb. I wouldn't mind either but Fournette should be taken if he's available.      My pipedream is for us to trade next year's 1st and both 2's for us to get a Fournette and Howard combo. I think it would be worth it.
    • I'm surprised that people actually buy into this idea that our offense is going to look drastically different. I'd be shocked if it does. I hope I'm wrong, but a leopard doesn't change it's spots. If Shula had the ability to adapt he would've already done it. He is who he is and this offense is what it is. If you want real changes you make a change at OC. We didn't and we'll see an offense that looks far more familiar than different next season.
