2020

The Panthers didn’t take the step forward some expected in 2020; it was a whole lot of close but not quite. 6-5 could very easily have been 8-3.

2021

There are many questions heading into 2021. What is known is that Kenny Pickett is back for a 5th year at QB. After that? It’s a crapshoot. Both lines have to be rebuilt, along with the secondary. The ground game has been awful for a couple of years, and there is no obvious candidate jumping out there. The receivers dropped as many passes as any group in the country last year.

If Things Go Well:

7-5

Enough of the pieces come together to keep the Panthers in most games.

It They Don’t

4-8

The Panthers don’t find a running game yet again. The receivers don’t figure out how to.. you know, catch. The D looks as inexperienced as it it.

Prediction

5-7

The Panthers have a reasonably weak schedule to start with, so they’ll have a chance to work out the kinks. This will keep them competitive over the last part of that schedule, bit it gets rough. A bowl is a reasonable goal if they can steal a game somewhere.
