You’ve all heard it, all offseason long. We’re accustomed to all the criticism here in Panther Nation. After losing Smith, LaFell, Ginn, and company everyone assumed automatically the Carolina Panthers would yet again be a terrible team. What most people haven’t realized, or haven’t researched is that our wide reciever corps now had better stats than the guys we had last season. Cotchery had 10 TDs last season, none of our guys last year did that. Add on the fact that these guys are legitimately pissed that the entire football world thinks they’re the worst wideouts in the NFL, and I believe you have a serious threat this season.
Not only are the wideouts determined to prove everyone wrong, but a less than 100% Cam Newton has stayed after practice with recievers to work on things together. I always say projections are about as good as guesses. It’s not definite or a sure answer.
Everyone has been exclaming their excitement with wideouts like Kelvin Benjamin, Tavarres King, Jason Avant, and Brenton Bersin. We are underdogs once again, but like the Panthers have said before “we’re comfortable being the underdogs.” Ladies and Gentleman for our 20th season, we show the entire NFL once again why you never count us out.
