The Panthers in the Playoffs
The Carolina Panthers are having themselves a fine 2013 season, much to the surprise
of many people around the league. The Panthers have had some tough seasons over the past few years, but things have really
some together this season. This team has its sights set on the postseason for the first time in years, and they look to have
enough potential to make it happen. Quarterback Cam Newton, selected by the team with the first overall pick in the NFL Draft
a few shorts years ago, has been a much more mature and poised quarterback in 2013. Newton has always had all the talent in
the world, but he's starting to realize that he doesn't have to win games on his own and that if he plays within himself he
puts the team in a much better position to emerge victorious. Newton doesn't have a Pro Bowl supporting cast on the offensive
side of the football, but he does have some solid weapons. Still, it's his poise and decision-making that have helped take
this team to the next level this season.
The biggest asset the Carolina Panthers have, however, is their defense. This
is a tenacious group of players that all play disciplined and aggressive football, resulting in one of the best defensive
units in the National Football League. The Panthers have stifled many an offense this season, doing all the little things
that make a defense great. The defense coupled with a solid offense could be enough to propel this team to the postseason
this year, and Carolina fans are waiting with bated breath for the chance to attend a playoff game.
Carolina Panthers are having a resurgent season after a few down years, and the fans of the team couldn't be happier. The
Carolina defense is giving opposing offenses fits this year thanks to a multitude of playmakers on each level. This defense
has posted a shutout this season and held a number of teams to single digit points in 2013. A good defense is often enough
to get a team to the postseason if the offense doesn't make too many mistakes, and that's exactly what Cam Newton and company
have been working on all season long. Newton looks like a new man as far as his understanding of the game. Newton is a physical
specimen that often relied too much on his ability to scramble outside the pocket and make plays with his feet. Now Newton
seems more poised in the pocket and is looking to make the right play every time the ball is snapped. The results have helped
put the Panthers in a position to pounce on a playoff spot.
The National Football League
is as good as it gets when it comes to pro football. This league boasts some of the top athletes in the entire world, and
they're on display on a weekly basis for fans of the NFL to see in person. When it comes to be playoff time, however, only
the best teams and the best performers are on display, and fans from all across the country clamor to gain access to their
local stadium to see a postseason contest. The playoffs are simply riveting, and there are some amazing moments each and every
season. Those lucky few fans to get to see the game in person remember the experience for the rest of their lives. If you've
never been to an NFL playoff game, then make it a top priority. Every NFL fan should see a postseason game in person at least

Carolina Panthers History
Panthers play in the National Football League as members of the NFC South division, a division that often sees a different

the invention of the Jacksonville Jaguars. The team experienced some early success with Steve Beurlein at quarterback, and
went to their first Super Bowl in 2003 with quarterback Jake Delhomme at the helm of the offense and head coach Jon Fox roaming
the sidelines. The Panthers have made the postseason four times, most recently in 2008.
