Panthers – A franchise in disarray

Carolina Panthers have been struggling for continued success ever since going to the Super Bowl in 2015. The team has seen many ups and downs and last year had the sixth-worst record in the league. Quarterback Cam Newton left and came back to the team as a backup. Head Coach, as mentioned by Steph in the video above, also left the team and now coaches the Washington Commanders.
