    Carolina Panthers History

    The Carolina Panthers are the third youngest team to play in the NFL along with the Jacksonville Jaguars (they were established in the same year as the Panthers), becoming the 29th team to join the league. 

    Their journey began in 1993 when they were awarded an NFL expansion franchise under Jerry Richardson who wanted an NFL side in the city of Charlotte and it wasn’t until he revealed a 72,300 capacity stadium in the late stages of final round bids between Baltimore, St Louis, Memphis and Jacksonville that the NFL was sold on the idea and gave the license to Carolina. 

    The Panthers didn’t seem out of place in their inaugural season in 1995, where they finished fourth in the NFC West, with a 7-9 win-loss ratio as Dom Capers men broke a new NFL record by having the most wins by an expansion side in a debut season. 

    It didn’t take long before the Panthers tasted postseason success as they achieved that feat in just their second season as they posted a 14-2 record ensuring they would play in the Divisional playoffs. 

    In their first postseason showing they defeated Dallas Cowboys 17-26 in the Divisional playoff match, where they advanced to the Conference Championship game, however, the elation of winning their first ever postseason game soon rubbed off as they went down to the Green Bay Packers in the Championship game. 

    The Panthers didn’t return to the postseason for the rest of the 90s despite having a 7-9 record in 1997 and under new coach George Seifert had an 8-8 record and finished second in the NFC West but still missed the postseason in 1999. 

    The year of 1998  proved to be inaugural coach Dom Capers last year at the helm, but he couldn’t achieve any success as they got off to 0-7 start- the worst in the franchise’s history and finished with a 4-12 record and as a price the Panthers let him go. The early period of the 2000s wasn’t an enjoyable ride, as they missed the playoff for the fourth consecutive time in 2000, however it turned ugly a year later. 

    The 2001 season is definitely one to forget for many Panthers fans as Seifert’s men only managed one win in the entire season which came in the opening round. They  then lost 15 straight games and  ended the season with a disappointing 1-15 record as they finished last in the division, which also ended Siefert’s tenure as head coach. 

    Despite the poor finish, Seifert in his last season helped the Panthers set up for the future as they picked up Dan Morgan, Kris Jenkins and Steve Smith who all had successful careers in the draft. 

    The mid 2000s proved to be a successful period for the Panthers, as they hired John Fox to take the position of head coach in 2002 and it proved dividends as he led the side to two playoff berths including a Super Bowl defeat in 2003. Fox’s second year was one to remember as he claimed the NFC South division title as well as a spot in the postseason, as they ended the 2003 season with a 11-5 record. 

    The Panthers faced the Dallas Cowboys in the wildcard playoffs winning 29-10, then faced a battle against the St Louis Rams in the Divisional playoff game defeating them 29-23 in overtime. They clinched the Conference over Philadelphia Eagles and claimed a maiden Super Bowl berth. 

    The Super Bowl though proved a game too far for the Fox’s Panthers as they were narrowly defeated by the New England Patriots 29-32. The Panthers returned the playoffs in 2005 and 2008, but it would be 2005 that would hurt the most as they won the wildcard playoff over the New York Giants, defeated the Chicago Bears in the Division but fell short in the Championship game against the Seattle Seahawks. 

    The year 2010 proved to be Fox’s last year as head coach and it was a disappointing way to end an eight year reign, as the Panthers finished the season in last place with a 2-14 record. The next year, things started to change direction for the better as the Panthers enlisted Ron Rivera as head coach as well as picking up Cam Newton with the No. 1 pick in the draft. 

    Newton was one to watch in his first season as he broke Payton Manning’s rookie passing record, rushing touchdowns by a quarterback in a single season, meanwhile the team finished with a 6-10 record as they finished third. 

    The best periods for the Panthers were on the horizon as they made the playoffs from 2013-2017, including appearing in their second Super Bowl in Super Bowl 50, as well as winning back-to-back-to-back division titles from 2013-2015. 

    It was the 2015 season that was really impressive as the team claimed the division title three-peat after they had a franchise best record winning 15 games and only losing one, as they were on their way to the Super Bowl with victories over Seattle in the Divisional round and the Arizona Cardinals in the NFC Championship game. 

    Once again the Panthers couldn’t capitalise on their momentum in the playoffs as they went down to the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50. The next two years the Panthers made the playoffs but it was in 2016 that saw an end to the Panthers three year dominance in the south division as the Falcons claimed the title. 

    The Panthers missed postseason action in 2018  despite starting the season in good fashion when they got off to a 6-2 start but ended the season with a 7-9 record. In 2019 they had a poor start and never really gained much control as they finished the season with five wins. 

    Expert 2020 / 2021 Picks & Preview on Carolina Panthers

    If you are a fan of the Carolina Panthers, then you know that the only thing that matters right now is how they are expected to perform in the 2020 / 2021 season. Do the Carolina Panthers have the star power to make it all the way to the Super Bowl in 2021? Have a read on below at SportsTips expert picks & preview on the Carolina Panthers:

    Preview on Carolina Panthers Head Coach: Matt Rhule

    Following the departure of Ron Rivera after 12 games of the 2019 season, long-time NCAA coach Matt Rhule was appointed head coach of the Carolina Panthers in January of 2020. Rhule’s coaching career began in 1998, and included two collegiate head coaching positions at Temple University (2013-2016) and Baylor University (2017-2019), where he posted a 47-43 career record. 

    The year 2019 was Rhule’s best season, leading the Baylor Bears to the Sugar Bowl and earning himself Big 12 Coach of the Year honours. This offseason, Rhule and the Panthers cut loose former MVP quarterback Cam Newton and acquired former Saints backup Teddy Bridgewater to take over the quarterback position. 

    Having been both an offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at the collegiate level, Rhule will be able revamp and establish Carolina’s offence in his own way. With a new quarterback and a new coach, the Carolina Panthers will be one of the most interesting teams to watch in 2020, looking to improve on a 5-11 2019 season.

    Preview on Carolina Panthers Offensive Weapon: Christian McCaffrey, RB

    Entering the fourth year of his NFL career, Christian McCaffrey’s 2019 All Pro/Pro Bowl season was littered with records and accolades, as he established himself as one of the premiere running backs in the game. 

    Becoming only the third player in NFL history to record over 1,000 yards rushing and 1,000 yards receiving in a single season, collecting the third most scrimmage yards in a single season in NFL history (2,392) and becoming only the second player in NFL history with at least 20 rushing TDs and at least 15 receiving TDs through their first three seasons. 

    McCaffrey’s BIG year was rewarded with a four year $64 million contract extension with the Panthers, making him the highest paid running back in NFL history. At only 24 years of age, McCaffrey is going to be a record-breaking machine for years to come.

    Preview on Carolina Panthers Defensive Weapon: Brian Burns, LB/DE

    With the retirement of franchise legend and All Pro linebacker Luke Kuechly, the Panthers defence is lacking a reliable star amongst their inexperienced group. Someone to keep an eye on in 2020 is second year pro Brian Burns. 

    With his rookie season now in the books, Burns was one of few shining lights on the 2019 Panthers lacklustre 31st ranked team defence. Having played in all 16 games, with five starts, Burns accumulated 7.5 sacks (Fourth most amongst rookies), along with 23 tackles, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery return for a TD. 

    A promising start to a young career on this rise, Burns should improve his numbers in 2020 with more starts and continue to develop into a reliable defensive player, potentially even a star.
