Carolina Panthers

CAROLINA PANTHERS HISTORY & INFORMATION

2009 Carolina Panthers Football Preview:

The Carolina Panthers head into 2009 with one thing on their mind; they want to seal the deal. The Panthers have had some marvelous seasons over the past few years but they have yet to win that elusive Super Bowl Champion ring. For Carolina to lift the Lombardi Trophy in Miami, they are going to need to get stellar play from quarterback Jake Delhomme, running back DeAngelo Williams and RB Jonathan Stewart. Carolina also wants to get a full season from talented, yet emotional wide receiver Steve Smith. Smith was suspended by the Panthers for the beginning of the ’08 season due to an altercation in training camp. The best news Carolina got over the off-season was the re-signing of defensive star Julius Peppers. Peppers returns to anchor a stout Panther defense that will be a key to whether Coach John Fox gets his team a Super Bowl victory.

The Carolina Panthers play in the South Division of the National Football Conference (NFC) of the National Football League (NFL). The Carolina Panthers were founded in 1995 along with the Jacksonville Jaguars as part of that year’s NFL expansion. The team would be coached first by Dom Capers, who managed to lead the team to a conference championship in just his second season. After failing to improve on that season, Capers was replaced by successful 49ers coach, George Seifert, who also failed to lead the Carolina Panthers back to the playoffs. In 2002 John Fox became the Carolina Panthers third coach and in his second year led Carolina to the Super Bowl, but lost the game to the New England Patriots. Carolina made the playoffs again in 2005, but injuries and off-field problems with the team have hampered what many considered to be strong championship contender. The Carolina Panthers are fighting to get back to playoff form.

The Carolina Panthers play at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina. The stadium seats over 73,000 spectators, and is located in Charlotte’s Uptown or Center City district, the city’s business center. Opened in 1996, “the Vault” is a fantastic place to watch a football game in a beautiful city.
