Cam Newton is entering his eighth season and he finally has enough talent around him to make a championship run. The Panthers went to the Super Bowl back in 2016 but since then there’s been some key players that have departed from Carolina. Josh Norman and Kelvin Benjamin are the two biggest names that come to mind and those losses really prevented Carolina from being that true top tier team. Now though the Panthers have added plenty of receivers out wide (Torrey Smith and D.J Moore), so they addressed their glaring weakness and that’s going to be huge for Cam Newton’s ability to create offense. Newton is so athletically gifted that he naturally gives the Panthers more opportunities than other QBs would. Which means those outside threats will have a chance to flourish in this system. Then there’s the running game which will feature C.J Anderson who rushed for over 1,000 yards last season with the Denver Broncos. If Anderson wasn’t enough to deal with the Panthers still have Christian McCaffrey who works very well out of shotgun next to Newton. McCaffrey can catch passes out of the backfield and is a scatback who plays very similar to Alvin Kamara. Cam Newton has all these weapons around him and now he has to take his game to new heights and show why he’s always been one of the most dominant football players in the world. Carolina can make a deep playoff run if Newton puts together his best season of football. It all starts with the quarterback position and being able to strike fear in the defense. Cam Newton does that the most when’s he’s a dual threat guy. Between the passing offense, the running backs, and Newton’s quarterback keepers there’s some serious potential with this offensive group. In the end though it all comes down to Cam Newton and how good he can be?
