2014 Season in Review
The GoodThe Panthers (7-8-1 SU, 8-8 ATS, 8-8 O/U) were mostly mediocre in every phase of the game and on both sides of the ball last season, but thy made something out of seemingly nothing anyway. The Panthers had another good year rushing the ball, finishing seventh overall (127.2 ypg) while also ranking 10th in total defense and 11th against the pass. Veteran running back Jonathan Stewart finished 19th in the league in rushing (809 yards) while Cam Newton finished 35th with 539 yards. Talented rookie wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin finished with 1, 008 receiving yards (21st) and tied for 25th in touchdowns with an impressive nine scores. Veteran tight end Greg Olsen also had 1,008 receiving yards and earned a Pro Bowl berth alongside gifted linebacker Luke Kuechly.
The BadCarolina had a lot of trouble throwing the ball successfully, finishing 19th in passing and an uninspiring 19th in scoring (21.2 ppg). Despite being a solid unit both against the ass and run, the Panthers’ defense gave up a surprising 23.4 points per game to finish 21st in points allowed.
The UglyEven though he was cleared of all wrongdoing, all of the domestic violence ‘drama’ surrounding ‘exempt’ defensive end Greg Hardy was a big distraction for the Panthers last season. Sadly, Hardy was found guilty in the court of public opinion long before he ever went to trial and saw his appeal to two counts of domestic violence turn out to be successful.
