    Does anyone truly know what the shared vision of Rhule and Tepper relative to an identity or foundational style of play of the “New Panthers”?

    every team covers speed and physical play, often times at the expense of intellect and my personal favorite, situational awareness.

    Thoughts/observations?

    And everyone stay safe. Wash your hands and act like you got some smarts.

    Sorry, I've been busy fighting World War 9 today.


    The truth of the matter is, at least in terms of the football side, I have no idea. You don't sign a quarterback for 20 mil/year, grab one of the top free agent WRs, and trade for a left tackle if your goal is to get the #1 pick, so I think you can at least rule out the tanking scenario. The offense should be respectable, but the team is entering the draft extremely thin on defense. Unless Hurney has an unbelievable draft, it will probably be a long year on that side of the ball.


    The team should be watchable, which is more than I expected two months ago. As far as "the new Panthers", that's probably more organizational. It's a very different operation compared to JR, I can tell you that much. I really don't believe what you see on the football field will be anything new.

    Not new, but different. The goal should simply be to win. Where this owner and new staff is going is anyone's guess at this point. The def is likely the weakest link as I agree with bb on that especially.

    Maybe we'll see good or decent qb play along with great cmc for a whole season for once in seems like forever now.

    It's hard to miss cam after now being like 2 years since him really being on the field. 2015 seems like 1996 now.

    Tepper said when he bought the team, and then again when he hired Rhule that he wanted to model the Pittsburgh Steelers. Whatever that means. Maybe somebody here has a good idea?

    After letting go of so many veterans, it looks the team us going to be younger and I agree with the comments above about the offense being able to score, but the defense needs a lot of help. I think Simmons will be the pick at 7, but the defensive line and backfield are both huge question marks. The edge/DEs are light in the ass and unless Kawaan Short can have a better year, the run defense is going to be bottom third.

    If you cant stop the run...

    I think it means you have to win some super bowls in the 70s with a roided up team.
