Panther fans are expecting big things from their team this upcoming season and rightfully so. Their team should be coming back even stronger and more confident than they have been in a long while.
Despite their record, the Panthers were one of the most exciting teams to watch last season. Their offense ranked among the top 10 in the NFL, and their rookie quarterback, Cam Newton, had managed to exceed expectations by rejuvenating the franchise and giving hope to all Carolina fans.
After a season in which the Panthers only went 6-10, they are coming back with pretty much the same roster. Hopefully, that means the players are growing into Ron Rivera's system and becoming more comfortable with their roles. And as these players get more comfortable with their roles, they will become even more effective on the field and win more games.
Although I believe the entire team will improve and there will be many players that will have a good season, there are certain players that I believe will have an exceptionally great season in 2012.
