It's been over five months since I last had to think about anything Carolina Panthers related, but I'm ready to dive back in. I can only hope my prayers were heard by the football gods to spare me another season of futility like the last one, where the team never held a lead in the fourth quarter—their only two wins, against the Texans and Falcons, came right at the gun! The gross mismanagement of this team was evident from the front office down throughout the entirety of 2023-24 NFL betting season. Unfortunately, their league-worst 2-15 record didn’t secure the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL Draft. Instead, it went to the Chicago Bears after the Panthers traded a king’s ransom to select Bryce Young with the No. 1 pick in the previous year’s draft. With new leadership now firmly in place, moves have been made to revive the team, including an entirely new coaching staff and upper management overseeing the daily operations.

Former first-round pick Dan Morgan is now in charge after serving as the team's assistant general manager from 2021-23. More importantly, the Panthers hired Dave Canales, a sound offensive mind from the Buccaneers, as the seventh head coach in franchise history. Canales brings 14 seasons of experience on the offensive side of the ball from Seattle and Tampa Bay and impressed last season by exceeding expectations with Baker Mayfield leading his attack. His task will be to revitalize an offense that ranked near the bottom in almost every significant statistical category. He also needs to boost the confidence of Bryce Young, who struggled to live up to his Heisman-winning and No. 1 Draft pick potential in his rookie season. While the current futures odds don’t favor Carolina making a significant impact this year, this season should focus on laying the foundation for one of the league's youngest rosters, setting the groundwork for future success.

Comparing the rookie seasons of Bryce Young and C.J. Stroud provides a clear picture of the differences in performance between the Panthers and Texans. Young threw for less than 2,900 yards with an 11:10 TD/INT ratio, while Stroud won the Offensive Rookie of the Year Award. Carolina fans need to move past last season's disappointment and accept that Young, the former Alabama standout, is the team's future. The front office has made efforts to surround him with better talent. Last season, the Panthers' offensive line allowed 65 sacks, second only to the New York Giants. An offense can't thrive when the quarterback is constantly under pressure. To address this, Robert Hunt and Damien Lewis were brought in to strengthen the guard positions, pushing Ikem Ekwonu to left tackle, his intended position when first drafted. The running game was one of the few strengths for Carolina (No. 20), which bodes well for Chuba Hubbard, who showed enough promise to be the team's primary running back. Jonathan Brooks was also drafted, and he, along with Miles Sanders, will support Hubbard as needed.

An improved rushing attack would complement a revamped passing game, highlighted by the acquisition of Diontae Johnson, providing Young with a true WR1. This addition should lead to improved performance from Young, reflected in his projected passing yards for the season set at 3,250.5 at the online sportsbook. Johnson, along with veteran Adam Thielen, will play crucial roles in helping develop South Carolina WR Xavier Legette, who the Panthers traded up to draft in the first round. The team also picked TE Ja’Tavion Sanders in the fourth round, who has potential to become an impactful player sooner rather than later. On defense, despite losing key players like Brian Burns, Frankie Luvu, and Jeremy Chinn, new defensive coordinator Ejiro Evero has new additions like Jadeveon Clowney and Dane Jackson to work with. It will be interesting to see how the defense adapts after allowing the fourth fewest yards in the league last season.

It would be a significant surprise to NFL bettors if the Panthers made a worst-to-first turnaround, considering their current futures odds. The Panthers are +1285 to win the division and +641 to make the playoffs. After failing to exceed their 7.5-game win total last year, their win total is now set at 5.5, with -112 odds on the over. With only one over in the win total futures market to call their own in the past six seasons, expectations are low. However, Carolina benefits from the tenth easiest schedule according to Sharp Football Analysis. Facing off against the NFC East and AFC West, with additional games against the Cincinnati Bengals, Chicago Bears, and Arizona Cardinals, the Panthers have a chance to exceed expectations if everything falls into place.

The Panthers emerged as an expansion team in 1995. They reached the NFC championship games in both 2003 and 2015 but fell short of winning the Super Bowl on each occasion. John Fox and Ron Rivera are the franchise's most notable head coaches, with Fox guiding the team to two division titles and a Super Bowl appearance, while Rivera secured three division championships and led the team to one Super Bowl appearance.

Jake Delhomme and Cam Newton are the franchise’s two most notable quarterbacks. Jake Delhomme’s tenure with the Carolina Panthers from 2003 to 2009 is marked by resilience and surprising success. An undrafted free agent who rose through the ranks via NFL Europe, Delhomme quickly became a beloved figure in Carolina. His breakout season in 2003 led the Panthers to an 11-5 record and their first Super Bowl berth, where his performance was remarkable despite a narrow loss to the New England Patriots.

Delhomme’s tenure included multiple playoff appearances and deep runs, characterized by his strong arm, leadership, and ability to orchestrate comebacks, earning him a lasting place in Panthers lore.

Cam Newton's arrival in 2011 as the first overall pick in the NFL Draft signaled a new era for the Panthers, revolutionizing their offense with his dual-threat ability. Newton’s historic rookie season and his 2015 MVP campaign, where he led the team to a 15-1 record and a Super Bowl 50 appearance, highlighted his impact. Despite a tough loss in the Super Bowl, Newton's dynamic play and larger-than-life personality made him a beloved figure. His tenure, marked by multiple playoff appearances and record-breaking performances, is remembered as one of the most exciting periods in team history.

Both Delhomme and Newton, with their unique styles and leadership, were instrumental in shaping the Panthers’ identity and success, leaving legacies that continue to inspire fans. So far, the Bryce Young era has failed to get off the ground, but it’s still early.
