Teams Drop Down

Can Carolina end up with a respectable season? A look at their remaining schedule and the NFC South.

The Panthers are a huge disappointment this season.  Many people, including me, thought that Cam would have a lot of growth with a full season and offseason under his belt.  Cam is playing worse than last season and looks like a rookie.  I do not think it is his fault, I think it falls on the coaching staff.

Here's a look at their remaining schedule, predictions and a look at the rest of their division.

@ Chicago - The Bears have their act together and are rolling.  No Chance Panthers win here.

@ Washington - The Redskins are putting together some exciting games, just not too many wins.  This game features two young and electric QB's.  I'll give the Redskins the edge at home.

Denver - Manning is getting the offense on the same page in Denver and they look good in recent weeks.  Denver wins here.

Tampa - The Bucs have played well but lost some close games.  The Panthers should win this game, but they won't.

Philadelphia - The Eagles are up and down this season but they will win this one against the Panthers.

@ KC - The Chiefs are a mess now but the Panthers aren't much better.  If this game was in Charlotte I'd give it to the Panthers but I think they lose in KC.

Atlanta - The Falcons are one of the top teams in the league, no way Carolina wins here.

@ San Diego - I don't know where the Chargers are going long term but they win this game.

Oakland - Here's a team that more of a mess than the Panthers.  Carolina gets a win at home.

@ New Orleans - The Saints are down this season but they can still but up some big numbers.  I don't see the Panthers winning here.

The Panthers finish this season at 2-14, a huge disappointment.  I expected big things from the Panthers and Cam this season.  

Here's a look at the rest of their division:

Atlanta (15-1)
New Orleans (5-11)
Tampa (5-11)

  1. I think you are close to the mark, with maybe Philly and/or KC being the exceptions. On the other hand, the traditional "sophmore slump" is alive and well in Carolina, and I'm really not that surprised at what has happened there. What I am really concerned about is the lack of strong guidance for Cam, whether from coaches, the team, or someone from the outside. No one seems to be taking this kid under his wing and giving him direction. This could end up a problem later on.

  2. Time to bring in some guys like Steve Beuerlein, Jake Delhomme, Kevin Greene and some others to show these guys how to act. Time for Steve Smith to sucker punch a team mate.
