3. Carolina Panthers (10-4, LW: 4)
Next Sunday is basically a playoff game for the Panthers, given everything that's at stake. You'd figure the Carolina crowd will act like it is.

5 10-4 ^2 The more RB DeAngelo Williams produces, the more it lightens the load on QB Cam Newton.

4. Carolina Panthers

Current Playoff Projection: NFC #5 seed (Wild Card)

The defense was a little more lax than expected, but the Panthers still managed a comfortable home win against the Jets while no doubt giggling to themselves as the Saints dropped a game on the road. The offense was treated to the annual Random DeAngelo Williams 150-Yard Outburst while Greg Olsen continued to prove that he's the most reliable element in the Panthers' passing game. Carolina will be breathing fire this week to avenge their unsightly loss in the Superdome, and if they can further the Saints' road woes they'll be in prime shape to claim the division crown. (Last week: 6)

2. panthersb_logo.gif Carolina Panthers (10-4) - Previously: #4 - The Panthers had all the reason in the world to trip up like the Saints did at St. Louis, but they essentially beat the Jets by 17. They've kicked the crap out of inferior competition all year.

While Carolina is a very good team, I have some issues with its fans. I recently said that Cam Newton is the least-proven out of Peyton Manning, Tom Brady and Drew Brees, which is factually correct. However, at least five Panther fans told me to basically f*** myself because I was hating on Cam again. Really? Oh OK, I guess Cam is just as proven as three quarterbacks who have a combined five Super Bowl rings. Derp.

Luckily, Panther fans are not all insane. Here's one who thinks very clearly:

I sick of all of these band wagon jumping "Panthers fans" who think that just because were winning that means they can go around trolling power rankings that think the Panthers aren't number one. I'm a Panthers fan too, but this is ridiculous. News flash, 1) Cam isn't God, and 2) were ranked number 4. Quit you're incessant whining.

Yeah, what he said!

Walter Football summary: Carolina is pretty good, now here's three paragraphs about why Cam isn't as good as three Superbowl winning future hall of fame quarterbacks.

Any outlet that puts SF or NE ahead of us is a joke.

We're def top 5 in the NFL.  Beyond that, who cares...  it's all just opinions anyway.

 

I'm glad the Panthers are being discussed though.

Stop linking Walterfootball to this website. It is no different than any poster here writing up a power rankings sheet.

FWIW, Herm Edwards just said on ESPN he thinks the Panthers win the division.

WalterFootball, 2 lines about the Panthers in a positive light (that's really a back-handed compliment); three paragraphs on how crappy the team, Cam, and Panthers fans are.  Wow...Fug us, right?

 

You could probably make the same complaints about any fanbase. I'm sure there are 49ers, Saints, Patriots and Chiefs fans who send him emails every week complaining their teams aren't ranked higher. The reason he includes the totally irrelevant complaint emails he gets from overenthusiastic fans (shocking, right?) in his power rankings at all is so he can get a jab in at the Panthers and not have to have something overwhelmingly positive to say about them.
