Ron Rivera went on the radio and said he wants to emulate the Pittsburgh Steelers:
“Look what they did in Pittsburgh with Ben Roethlisberger,” Rivera said. “Look what they did with the type of players they put in their backfield, put in their receiving corps. They run the ball with a very quick, slashing style running game. They can ground and pound it at the same time with the same running game. Then they’ve got some very versatile, quick receivers that make plays once they get the ball in their hands.”
Uhh, you can have all the explosive players you want but you need the quarterback and the Panthers don't have anyone who can play like Big Ben. If Newton can return to 2015 form than sure, but 2015 might have been an aberration rather than the norm.
