Mac's Top Five Bold Predictions For The 2019 Panthers

We had a Panther fan pow wow recently on The Mac Attack and came up with some ballsy yet (somewhat) doable predictions for the Cats season. Here are my favorite ones......

1) Panthers sweep Saints and win the division

After losing the division title twice and all four meaningful games vs. NO the last two years, this would be amazing.  I feel like the Panthers are trending up and the Saints are a team that will regress a bit to the mean from 13 wins last year.  

2) Cam Newton has 40 total touchdowns and wins another MVP

Okay, so I got greedy here. He was actually on pace for 38 total touchdowns at the halfway point last year before the injury. Adding in the MVP makes it real bold.

3) Samuel and Moore each go for 1000 yards receiving 

The Panthers will be spreading the ball around a ton so maybe it's not likely, but the way these two are surging, you can't say its impossible.

4) CMC goes for 1000/1000

Former 1000/1000 man Roger Craig himself said he thinks CMC can pull this off. He was 133 receiving yards away from this last year. If he adds on a yard per catch and puts up 100 plus catches again, he will be real close.

5) Panthers rank top five in sacks on defense

​Ok, so I came up with this one myself.  And yes, it would be a huge leap from 27th to fifth or better. But, the edge position looks deep and they have three guys who have been to the Pro Bowl as interior guys.
