Three Burning Questions

Are the Panthers ready to become champions this season?
They are as good of a candidate as anyone and have a better chance than most teams in the league. Did they narrow the gap between themselves and the Seahawks? Probably. Do they have a coach and quarterback who can get it done and have the necessary big game experience? They sure do. Do they have one of the deeper rosters in order to handle the injuries and rigors of the long season? Yup. Are they one of the top contenders for the Lombardi trophy? Without a doubt.
