I told you in the comment section of this morning's match up that the afternoon duel was going to be much tougher. From where I sit this could be one of the toughest head-to-heads we have in the first round. The Panthers' all time leading receiver, vs. the Panthers' all time leading rusher.
Fans- you know the drill. After the jump we'll have a breakdown of the exploits of both players as well as their statistics while playing for Carolina. Remember to comment in the section for the purposes of spirited debate... this should be a good one.
Muhsin Muhammad, WR
Statistics as a Panther: 155 games, 696 receptions, 9,255 yards receiving, 50 TD
Two time Pro Bowler while in Carolina, 2004 All Pro, 2004 Receiver of the year
- "MOOOOOOSE!" One simple word that sums up a career. For a long time he was as close to an original Panther as John Kasay after being a 2nd round selection in the 1996 draft. Muhammad was the kind of possession receiver every team wanted, but few actually had. The 2003 and 04 years were his zenith when recorded an 85 yard TD reception in the Superbowl in 2003, and then followed up with a scintillating 2004 season where he totaled 1,405 yard and 16 TDs.
Statistics as a Panther: 64 games, 4,211 rushing yards, 35 total TD
Pro Bowler (2009), All-Pro (2008)
- Though it's been 64 short games RB DeAngelo Williams has been in rare form since arriving from the university of Memphis. Starting his career buried behind DeShaun Foster it didn't take long for the organization to realize he was the RB of the future. Never was this more prevalent than in 2008 when Williams rushed for 1,515 yards and 18 touchdowns. Now, he's part of the deadly 'Double Trouble' tandem with Jonathan Stewart and many fans hope to see D-Will for a long, long time.
