The Carolina Panthers have lost five straight, most recently to the Cleveland Browns. I don’t know what hurt more. The loss to the Browns or the fact that the Cleveland Browns look like the team on the rise and the Carolina Panthers on the decline. Probably that second thing.
Luke Kuechly is the entire Carolina Panthers defense. That seems like it is hyperbole, but it is true. Watching him pass the Panthers defensive backs on his way go tackling Jarvis Landry only confirmed this truth. Luke Kuechly should have eleven numbers on his back. It is almost as if he is he only member of the defense that just wants it more.
Christian McCaffrey deserves a pro bowl appearance. There is no question in my mind. Go now and vote for this young man. The Carolina Panthers are lucky to have him.
You know what? We are ultimately the losers here. Carolina Panthers fans have to witness yet another year of disappointment as we watch a team with talent stumble their way out of contention. Sure, I could list Ron Rivera or Marty Hurney here, but they have been on the losers list all season it seems. We are way past that now. The fans who are purchasing the tickets and jerseys are the ones that are taking the brunt of this letdown of a season now.
The bottom line is that the Carolina Panthers have gotten old and complacent in a hurry. They currently have the 4th oldest roster in the entire league and it shows. I suspect (hope) an injection of youth is coming.
Think about it, who have been the most exciting players to watch this season? Christian McCaffrey, Donte Jackson, Curtis Samuel, and DJ Moore. All under 24 years old. It is time to start playing the young players who have fresh legs and something to prove. Could it get any worse?Agree? Disagree? You can sound off right here with thousands of Carolina Panthers fans.
