Carolina Panthers: Playoffs? Why fans should hope they get a chance
The Panthers are stacked with veteran leadership at a number of positions and another opportunity at a Super Bowl would only fuel their fire. Coupled with the hot finish it would take in order to secure a berth, Carolina could surprisingly turn into a tough out for any team in the playoffs.
Thomas Davis, Ryan Kalil, Mike Adams, Julius Peppers and even the injured Greg Olsen all are deserving of one more opportunity at bringing the Lombardi Trophy back to the Carolinas. Remember, before the losing streak, this team won six football games and definitely has the talent to be successful.
A complete reboot of the roster is coming but one last ride with many whose names have become synonymous with what being a Carolina Panthers player is all about would be far more entertaining than watching other teams play in January.
