Who are the Carolina Panthers most important departed characters?
Kelvin Benjamin, the second year wide receiver who much of the hopes of Panthers fans were placed on, tore his ACL during preseason and will be out for the rest of the year. This leaves the team with zero established wide receivers — a big problem.
Who are the Carolina Panthers most important new characters?
To perhaps the best group of linebackers in the league, the Carolina Panthers added Shaq Thompson. Although mostly a linebacker, Thompson won the Paul Hornung award last year given to the most versatile player in college football. He actually started two games at running back for his college team, the Washington Huskies. He’s unlikely to play much on the offense in Carolina, but given their need for pass catchers, who knows?
Who are the Carolina Panthers most important characters?
Quarterback Cam Newton had a strange season last year. At times, he looked great. At times, he looked like he could barely walk. Then he got into what could have been a catastrophic car injury, broke his back… and then came back and played well in the playoffs. What will he do next?
What is the most pivotal pivot point for the 2015 Carolina Panthers?
Without Benjamin, who is going to catch Newton’s passes? A lot of hope is now pinned on rookie wide receiver Devin Funchess. Even if he’s great, the Panthers will need something from someone else. Who will it be?
How will the 2015 Carolina Panthers fare?
Can a team win without wide receivers in 2015? Maybe in 1985 but not 2015. The Panthers will end the year with a losing record and, unlike last year, won’t make the playoffs anyway.
