THis is going to be a series of TDs on teams records. The end result will be the TD Boards prediction for the end year NFL standings.
Will go in order of draft selection
THe winning TDers prediction will be what the record is. We lock those games for latter TDs. SO for the rest of the TDs with PAnthers games the results will be the same as the winner in this TD. So there won;t be one for Pitt and Green Bay since their games will all be locked. If I didn't make this clear enough I will re-explain in commments
So I have them going 4-12.

@ Detroit- L
Detroit's defense is going to be tough to beat this year. With a rookie QB, Carolina's going to have to run the ball... a lot. Hell, Newton's primary asset is his size and mobility. With Suh and Fairley on the front line, running the ball on the Lions will be a tall order. Plus, this game is being played on the road.
VS Tennessee- L
The Titans offense ranked 7th in the NFL last season in total yards. Adding Matt Hasselbeck to run the offense should only help that figure. Additionally, the Titans defense recovered 14 fumbles last season, ranking 5th in the NFL. For a Carolina team that is going to need to run the ball, that's a bad sign.
I'll leave it at that for now. MTC

Detriot Dline is great a pass rushing not so much run stopping. Detriot ranks in the bottom ten in rush ypg, yards per attempt, and TDs allowed.
ALso Carolina has a great offensive line that willl help a lot.
The Panthers have a great two back tandem. They will be able to run the ball on the Lions. Williams and Stewart will have big games.
Newton will be able to scramble to the outside to escape the DTs. From there he can either run or pass.
If he passes he doesn;t have to be that accurate since Detriots cornerbacks are not that good.
So Carolina offense fits welll against Detriots defense.
Carolina will need to run the ball and that will be a lot easier than last year since Tennesse lost their two best front 7 players in Tulloch and Babin.
And the Titans offense was 27th in the league in total yards.
As for Matt Hasselbeck improving that he threw more picks than TDs(Young and Collins had more TDs), he was just as accurate, and a lower passer rating.
He might not improve that at all.
Panthers have nowhere but up to go.
