It depends on there philosophy and Tepper's also. It seems like this team is leaning towards being offensive. I used to be against that but not now in this era of football. Its literally geared toward offense to shine.
But even if Cam comes back in mvp form you still have Luke gone, the dline is terrible and Panthers corners have always gotten burned with the exception of a few games here n there.
I will say though before this team lost all hope with Cam gone and Ron gone they were very competitive.(and even beat Texans and Titans)
