When they get a top 5 pick in the draft and take a WR (AJ Green or Julio Jones) or DE (Da'Quan Bowers, Robert Quinn, or Cameron Heyward)
After looking at the schedule below, I think the Panthers may be winless until our good friend Jake Delhomme comes to town in week 12.
What do you guys think?

When the Bill Cowher era begins
And only because Atlanta's playoff spot will be solid and they'll sit all their starters. Hopefully this doesn't jeopardize the Panthers picking 1st in the 2011 draft.17 Sun, Jan 2 Atlanta Falcons @ Atlanta (3-1) 1:00 pm EST
Only games I can see them winning are St. Louis, Cleveland, and Seattle (with Atlanta thrown in if they're resting all their starters in the last game). Gonna be a long year.
We win the week 7 battle of the Oh-fers!!!
Carolina 0 fer 5
49ers 0 fer 6
I don't know man. At least the Niners have been competitive in most of their games. Panthers have only had one closer than 13.
