Well considering cam couldn’t throw more than 5 yards your not really using the speed we have on the outside  up to potential. So no it’s not the same offense

Not really sure why. Plenty of teams stopped us last year... Same players, same playbook, same everything

Well, we have a 3rd year Curtis Samuel who is actually ready to go Week 1, instead of having heart surgery, we have a 2nd year DJ Moore who was explosive last year, but just learning how to be a pro - now he should run the whole route tree and be the starting X WR on day one.  Also, we have a much improved offensive line, and a healthy Greg Olsen.  Oh, and dont forget about Cam Newton having his shoulder fixed and coming back to what looks like 100 percent.  Also, instead of a CMC who was just learning the ins and outs of the pro game, we have a CMC whos coming off nearly a 2,000 yard season.

Not even close to the same type of team we had last year.

I’d argue that better talent on the OL and guys who have developed will make a world of difference. The obvious caveat is keeping Cam clean and thus healthy.

To top it off, if Cam had stayed healthy last year, we would have certainly made the playoffs and possibly even contended for the division.  Even with Cam at 50% or so during our losing streak along with a makeshift line, we still almost (and in most cases should have) won most of those games.  

So there's no reason to think that with the development of young guys like Samuel, DJ, Thomas, and the continued development of CMC, along with a healthy and complete line and healthy Cam, we won't be a legitimate contender.  Not to mention the effect the addition of guys on defense like Irvin and McCoy will have on giving the offense shorter fields to work with.

This offense has the potential to be as scary as any in the league, and maybe even scarier if Cam is truly back to his old self...with the improved accuracy he showed last year.

With a revamped Oline and even with a 75 percent Cam we're a different Offense.

Same Players: Cam with a useable shoulder...Take away Funchess and insert a 3rd year Samuel and McCaffrey. A more developed DJ Moore. Wright & Hogan in the "Cotchery" role and having Greg Olsen back will be HARD to plan against let alone stop. 

Same Playbook: We couldn't throw deep last year...teams knew it and still couldn't contain McCaffrey. We had a helluva losing streak but we we're still in the wildcard race at Week 15. Norv is the OC in contrast to Shula who was incredibly predictable. Also, 20 percent of that same Playbook is new this year. 

Same Everything: Our Oline should be vastly improved which helps the above two categories execute. The defense is under Rivera so I suspect the offense shouldn't have to put up 35+ to win every week. From all these one year deals, we are All in ...jobs are on the line...which should undoubtedly bring out Riverboat. 

Odd year on top of that..Yeah...This will be a good season for us.
