Carolina Is Headed Towards A Second Consecutive Losing Season
Take this one as you will, but for all intents and purposes this could be a good thing. A second losing season in the first two years of franchise ownership could be just the motivation that David Tepper needs to start writing some pink slips. It would also mean that the team is headed towards higher draft positioning.

While a higher draft pick doesn’t necessarily mean a better draft pick (Daley v. Grier, Anyone?) it does mean a better chance of targeting an area of need. With the lack of run defense and underwhelming pass offense this season it wouldn’t be surprising to see the Panthers go for a new defensive tackle or even another new wide receiver. Last year the Panthers made a tough decision by moving on from legendary linebacker Thomas Davis, and this year we could see moves of similar or greater magnitude made on the roster.
The Panthers are headed towards another tumultuous offseason. There will be a lot of tough decisions to make and some people in those white and blue outfits won’t be there next year. However, if it means the team can guarantee some entertainment in February of 2021 then I’m all for it.
Rest assured, Tepper is all about this team and the Charlotte community, and he won’t let Panthers fans suffer a third consecutive losing season. Before you know it, this team will be back to dancing and using nicknames, just like the good old days.
