To end the first five rough games for the Bucs is the familiar faces of the Carolina Panthers. After going through the season undefeated and losing in the Super Bowl, the Panthers look to take another shot at a ring. Unfortunately for them, they lost Josh Norman, and that speaks for itself. The Panthers’ defense is still tremendous, with arguably one of best front-sevens in the NFL, but without any true threats in the secondary, Jameis Winston could have a field day.
Jameis will be doing his homework on these rookie and back-up corners that the Panthers believe they can play with.
Will Cam Newton continue to shine? There is no doubt Cam has taken a step in his career, and with the addition of Kelvin Benjamin being back, will be a force to stop. Once again the question arises, can the Bucs’ 5’11” corners guard Benjamin and fellow receiver Devin Funchess? Oh, and don’t forget about Greg Olson, who seems to have made his money by roasting Lovie Smith’s outdated schemes.
Mike Smith, please help.
