The Carolina Panthers won the NFC South division with a balanced offense run by quarterback Cam Newton and a stingy tough defense. Free agency may have robbed them at the chance of repeating. They have pretty much lost their entire receiving group and entire starting secondary. Something i can't recall ever seeing happen except maybe with the Florida Marlins baseball team.
Carolina will be asking a lot from Cam Newton to produce with new receivers. Good news is they don't really face any stud defenses within their NFC South divion, but the flip side of that is with the new look secondary their defense will have to deal with Drew Brees and Matt Ryan twice a piece and also an improved Tampa Bay Buccaneers offense. Repeating as division champs will be tough with so many new faces and lack of chemistry. Cam Newton may very well need that super man cape to pull the repeat. These guys below will be key in the success of the Panthers.
