5 Pieces Carolina Still Needs in Order to Become a True Contender

The Carolina Panthers were supposed to be contenders in 2012.  Led by a second-year head coach and a multi-talented quarterback the Panthers were poised to make a run at the playoffs and perhaps a Super Bowl as boldly predicted by veteran center Ryan Kalil. 

As the NFL heads into Week 13, Carolina is nowhere close to competing for anything as it is out of contention for the NFC South crown and all but eliminated from a wild-card berth. 

The Panthers were supposed to be the breakout team in the NFL this season, but they fell flat on their faces early and never really recovered.  The only thing left for them to do is to play out the rest of the season and hope for a strong finish.  Some are already looking towards next season, but before the 2013 campaign can get under way, there are issues which need to be addressed.

Even though there are five games left on the season, I've come up with a list of necessary pieces Carolina needs in order to field a contending unit for next season and beyond.
