Welcome to the first of my off-season preview series. We begin with the Carolina Panthers.
It is a sad time in Carolina. They are the worst team in the NFL, and are filled with holes. They also got rid of the mediocre John Fox as head coach, and he is replaced by Ron Rivera, the former defensive coordinator of both the Bears and Chargers. However, they have a few bright spots, most noticeably the dynamic running back duo of Johnathan Stewart and DeAngelo Williams. Andrew Luck's decision to return to Stanford really hurt Carolina. Hopefully, Jimmy Clausen will step up and lead the Panthers out of the cellar. Still, the future does not look bright. The Panthers need a strong draft and maybe sign some new talent. However, it has been done (See Rams, St. Louis).
