Statistics as a Panther: 91 games, 1,580 completions, 19,258 yards, 84.9 QB rating, 120 TD

Accolades: Pro Bowl (2005)

What is there to say about Jake Delhomme? We was a free agent acquisition who was never really intended to start, but during the opening game of the 2003 season against Jacksonville with Rodney Peete crumbling-- in came Delhomme to begin his Carolina Panthers legacy. The mild mannered Cajun was arguably the greatest QB this franchise has had. He possessed a gunslinger mentality like Brett Favre which was both his best attribute and his greatest downfall. Whether you love or hate Delhomme his tenure in Carolina must be respected.

 

Sam Mills, LB

Statistics as a Panther: 48 games, 248 tackles, 7 INT

Accolades: Pro Bowl (1996), All Pro (1996), #51 retired by Carolina

While Sam Mills only played 48 games for the Carolina Panthers his effect on this franchise was dramatic and far reaching. Even though we signed Mills on the back end of his career he put in a stellar 1996 season. Following his time as a player Mills became a defensive coach for the Panthers as he helped mold one of the best defenses in football. Tragically, Mills fight against Cancer and subsequent death meant he could not be with us today, but his 'Keep Pounding' motto became the catch-cry of the Panthers' superbowl run.
