CHARLOTTE, NC - Training camp has barely even begun and already the Carolina Panthers have fallen under scrutiny from sports talk show hosts.
During a segment on his show this week, Fox Sports' Colin Cowherd counted down the top 10 potential dumpster fires in the league. His number five pick? The Panthers.
“They’ve never had back-to-back winning seasons under Cam, they’re getting frustrated with Cam, now they bring in Norv Turner to help Cam, and their division’s really, really good,” Cowherd said.
It's important to note that not only did the team go 11-5 this past season, they did so after overcoming numerous injuries.
The Panthers are gearing up for a new season with some new blood on the field. FOX 46 cameras captured one of the team's newest members, wide receiver Torrey Smith, as he arrived Wednesday morning to training camp at Wofford College.
Preseason for the Panthers kicks off Thursday, August 9 at 7 p.m. against the Buffalo Bills.
