I have to admit it...as much as I hate losing the draft ranking, I LOVE a win. Even a win against a poorly coached team with a terrible QB.

bonus points for ensuring that Ron gets a losing season and keeping him from locking down the playoffs.

The best and only opportunities for the Carolina Panthers to win Super Bowls both came without stacked rosters, without a team of high draft picks and name-brand super stars.

A win is a win, and if anyone were to bring up tanking in an NFL locker room, you'd probably get your ass kicked. So, while this may be a great theory to toss around a message board, in real life professional athletes in the NFL don't think about tanking. Leave that up to the front office who will build a roster that won't be able to compete, that's the only way any kind of "tanking" takes place.

Sorry man, that's just wildly inaccurate. Particularly the 2015 team. The offense was led by Cam who was a former #1 overall pick, MVP, and one of the biggest stars in sports at the time. The defense was led by Luke who was a DPOY, former top 10 pick, and one of the biggest defensive stars in football at the time.

So two players is wildly inaccurate?  He said a TEAM of high draft picks and name-brand superstars and you picked two.  LOL

There's no such thing as a team full of high draft picks, but that team was pretty close to it. Any idiot knows that. But it's very rare for a team to have arguably the biggest stars in the league at the time on both sides of the ball. You know, high draft picks and name brand stars. There were six starters on that team that were drafted in the top half of the 1st round.

Without looking, who were the WRs on that 2015 roster? Corey Brown, Devin Funchess and Ted Ginn.

RBs? Stewart, Whitaker and CAP?

C'mon, man.

I agree and I believe that back then the Panthers had the most drafted players on their roster which included most of their first round picks.

Maybe my word choice wasn't the best when I mentioned draft picks and completely overlooked who was doing the drafting. We all know Marty Hurney was one of the best at drafting a projected 4th rounder in the 2nd, thereby making him a "high round draft pick."

Every roster has weaknesses. That's the reality of a hard cap league. But that roster absolutely was not short on premium draft picks and star power. It's just revisionist history to paint it that way.

9 first round picks on that roster, 3 of them were top 10.   Try again.
