CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Panthers announced Wednesday that Pro Bowl center Ryan Kalil is out for the season after suffering a left foot injury.
If the Panthers would’ve turned it over a bunch, fumbled a couple of times, committed a lot of penalties, etc I don’t think I would be nearly as alarmed. But after watching them get whipped at the line of scrimmage for four quarters by the lowly Buccaneers I’m concerned.
The Panthers and Buccaneers each have top players banged up, but it’s Tampa Bay thats feeling the pain, especially at cornerback. Carolina quarterback Cam Newton had a record setting rookie campaign passing the ball, and could have a field day to start his second year against a secondary with little depth.
Earlier this summer Panthers center Ryan Kalil bought an ad in the paper stating that he thought the Panthers could make it to the Super Bowl. Obviously with Kalil doing his best Don Draper impersonation, this fired up the fans of the team with thoughts of returning to the big game almost a decade after the Panthers’ first appearance in a Super Bowl. Well, there is one way and one way only for Carolina to get Super Bowl bound, and that is to make the playoffs. So how do the Panthers make the playoffs?
