Carolina Panthers NFL Picks, Predictions vs. the Point Spread
Say what you will about the Carolina Panthers in 2010, but your NFL picks need to keep up with the times. The Panthers have been one of the most frustrating teams in all of pro football over the years, but 2010 looks to be a somewhat different story. That is not to say that the Panthers are going to be improved. Chances are better that the Panthers will struggle all the way through, offering no signs of life and little to get excited about. With a new quarterback and some holes to fill on the defensive side of the ball, those making NFL picks will want to be wary of the Carolina cats.
The Panthers lost a top defensive player last week when Thomas Davis blew out his knee. Julius Peppers is gone, as well, and the depth is looking like an issue. The Panthers and John Fox used to hang their hat on defense and ball control. Though the running game looks good in 2010, the defense might not be able to match that effort. Keep this in mind as you make those NFL picks this year. Panther games might not be the low scoring affairs that you have been used to.
The Panthers have the unenviable task of taking on the NFC South. In addition to the defending world champion Saints, the Falcons look formidable and the Bucs should be better. That particular division has been a craps shoot over the years, so you can’t pencil in a champion right away. The division will do not favors to this team, though. If you are looking for an angle, make your NFL picks against the Panthers when they’re asked to cover a medium sized spread. Given their capabilities and the reluctance of John Fox to play aggressive football, the Panthers will have trouble in those spots in 2010.
