It’s been a very disappointing year for Panthers fans—and yes this is the understatement of the year. The bright side is at least all the analysts and shows will have to talk about us for a change.
Everyone believes the Panthers have the first pick locked up (and they probably do), but check out this scenario.
The Panthers face the Arizona Cardinals next week and right now no one would be surprised if Terry Bradshaw got a call to start for them. This is the last chance the Panthers have for a victory.
A win against the Cardinals and consistently bad play from the Buffalo Bills and Detroit Lions would mean a three-way tie. The next tie breaker—don’t quote me though—is record within the conference, which Carolina would win.
Detroit and the Bills would then do a coin toss for first pick.
With this is mind, the Panthers select a certain southern receiver, and seeing that the Bills would have the top pick—a certain quarterback decides to stay in college, if he was smart. If our current quarterback sucks it up next year then we draft that certain quarterback that stayed in the next draft.
Regardless of what happens the rest of the season, there are a number of positions the new regime will have to address.
Without further adieu, I give you what a currently 1-11 team will need during the draft.
