5-12 : 8-9


The Panthers have some great players on both sides of the ball, but within a tough division and having a tough schedule overall, that isn’t enough. Their Linebacking corp is weak, and a good d-line and some play-making DB’s won’t be enough in compensation when they play veteran QB’s. Similarly, CMC and quick WR’s on the outside won’t be enough to compensate for a shaky o-line. This shouldn’t worry Panthers fans though- the Panthers are making great progress in their rebuild and should be competitive next year.
