Yes, we know that this is taking a while!
As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team. That being said, we have existing Top 50 lists out and we always consistently look to update them when we can and based on necessity. As such, we are very happy to present our post-2021 revision of our top 50 Carolina Panthers.
As for all of our top 50 players in football we look at the following:
1. Advanced Statistics.
2. Traditional statistics and how they finished in the National Football League.
3. Playoff accomplishments.
4. Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.
Last year, the Panthers again failed to make the playoffs, but there were changes in the top 50, including one new entry and two elevations.
As always, we present our top five:
1. Steve Smith
2. Cam Newton
3. Luke Kuechly
5. Ryan Kalil
You can find the entire list here.
It is worth noting that Newton, who returned midway through last season to Carolina, did not surpass Smith and remains at #2.
Wide Receiver, D.J. Moore, climbed to #37 from #48.
Linebacker, Shaq Thompson went from #46 to #40.
The lone debut is Offensive Lineman, Taylor Moton comes in at #50.
We welcome your input and comments and as always, we thank you for your support.
