Cam Newton's first season in the NFL was definitely an unforgettable one. But to tell you the truth, I'm more excited to see what Newton will do in his second year in the NFL. This coming season will be a real exciting one for Panther fans. Not only will we get Jon Beason and Thomas Davis back, we'll also get to see what our new quarterback looks like as a non-rookie.
Although, we are a long way away from the 2012 season, I don't think it's too late to get excited about the upcoming match-ups for the Carolina Panthers. Even though there are still some significant changes to come to the current Panthers roster - considering the NFL draft hasn't even taken place yet - I still think that we can get a good idea of what to expect with the upcoming match-ups.
Keep in mind, we only know who the Panthers opponents are; the exact dates and times of the schedule have yet to be set. Nevertheless, the Panthers have played all these teams before and we can still get a sense of how the season will go.
Or how we hope it'll go.
In the 2012 NFL season, the Carolina Panthers will be playing all four teams from two different divisions (other than their own): the NFC East and the AFC West. In addition, they also have games scheduled against the Chicago Bears and the Seattle Seahawks. Let's take a look at those games first.
Throughout this article, I encourage you all to share your thoughts on how the 2012 season will go.
