Well, here we go.

No more talk about could Lebron consider playing in Charlotte, no more who was your favorite Brady Bunch kid, say goodbye to all of our favorite get me through summertime show topics.

It is time for football and time for a new era with the Panthers.

Smitty and Gross are gone, time for new voices to be heard inside the locker room.

Who will that new voice be?

We start to answer some questions as another training camp begins.  Is Kelvin Benjamin the offensive missing piece that the fans have been looking for?  Can the Panthers find answers at the two tackle positions?  Can the running game produce without Cam Newton being the catalyst to do so?

A lot of questions to ponder as the Panthers begin defense of their NFC South division crown.

Speaking of defense, can the front seven continue to carry the torch as it did last season?  Will the secondary hold up as it seemed to do last year.

Again, questions that we begin to find out some possible answers to as the 2014 campaign inches closer.

It should be an interesting ride, regardless of what the final record is as the division has gotten better and the schedule appears to be quite daunting.

Wait a minute, what is that?

Stewart is out a couple of weeks already and Kugbila is out for the season?  Great, and so it begins!!
