Panthers not the Most Improved Team, say 10 experts

In a "fan post" and a "fan shot" post, many CSR posted are taking the high dive into the pool with Greg Rosenthal's prediction that the Panthers will be the next team to win it's first Super Bowl, but not so fast. Another story at nfl.com has their experts listing the 10 most improved teams this offseason, and the Panthers didn't make the list.

So, ask yourself this, if the Panthers went 6-10 in 2011, and they aren't one of the 10 most improved teams in a 32 team league, how do they go to the Super Bowl this season?

1. Greg Rosenthal predicted the Panthers to be the next team to win it's first Super Bowl, but his prediction has no time limit, it could take 10 years or more for it to happpen.

2. Rosenthal's picks are based almost totally upon if the teams have a franchise QB in place, and Cam (along with Dalton) are the newest. This is smart, because a QB who can lead a team to a Super Bowl win is the hardest part to find, but it takes a lot more than that to win a Super Bowl.

3. Rosenthal's rankings could change greatly next season, after Luck, RG III, and maybe other QB's prove themselves this season, and a few teams draft the next great QB next year.

Here is a list of how the nfl.com experts select the 10 most improved teams this offseason.

Patriots - Steve Wyche

Bengals - Albert Breer

Bills - Ian Rapoport

Bucs - Daniel Jeremiah

Bucs - Charley Casserly

Redskins - Jeff Darlington

Cowboys - Dave Dameshek

Chargers - Adam Rink

Bears - Chad Reuter

Jaguars - Jason Smith

Notice, the Parnthers aren't on this list, why?

1. Free Agent signings - The panthers went for low end FA's, avoiding high priced big name FA's

2. Trades - The Panthers didn't trade for any big name players, just backup (Goodson) for backup (Campbell)

3. Draft - The Panthers didn't trade back to load up on draft picks like the Bengals, and offensive picks get most of the headlines.
