There is no doubt that the Carolina Panthers have a talented team this year. After a year in which the offense had to carry the team for most of the season, the defense looks refreshed and rejuvenated. This could be the best team that the Carolina Panthers have had in quite some time.
With this talent comes a bit of familiarity. The star-started rookie class is now in their second year, having experienced a year of life in the National Football League as well the Carolina Panthers playbook. Now, everyone should be ready to play at the highest level.
