Sitting at the bottom of the division is the Carolina Panthers and star quarterback Cam Newton. The Panthers impressed by playing a tough game against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 1, and then lost another close game to the Buffalo Bills (starting a rookie quarterback) in Week 2.

Things have yet to get going for Carolina in the division, but until the team can win the close games and show the maturity needed to overcome the odds, the Panthers will continue to sit in last.

There’s quality things happening in Carolina, especially on defense. Until it all comes together, the team will struggle to win games.

    This is bogus. How can you put Tampa ahead of Carolina? I know this is splitting hairs in some ways, but Carolina has looked good and blown it. Tampa has just blown it.

      Actually I would give them a tie for now…both have good defenses, both have blown opportunities…however as a saints fan i am more concerned with Carolina than Tampa…but not enough to rank one over the other right now…like Al said…too soon…I won’t be fully ready to crown my saints superbowl contenders till we’ve beat Arizona in passing, and stopped San Fran and Dallas…then I can crown us, till then I;m only confident of being 1-3rd seed of playoffs (our schedule is easier than San Fran and Seattle…in fact it may be the easiest in the NFC)…

    Too early to make any predictions about any team being Superbowl contenders.
