The Carolina Panthers have long been an under-used madden team. With offensive tools like Jonathan Stewart, Deangelo Williams, Steve Smith and a good offensive line, the defense is always guessing. Do madden gamers choose to use other teams because of a sub par defense?
On the other side of the ball they have a great front 7 lead by superstars like Julius Peppers and John Beason. The secondary is a little thin but when you can control the game with 2 great running backs, an offensive line, and one of the best wide receivers in the game, you shouldn’t need to have an amazing defense.
With all that talent, I decided to give them a try in practice mode. I was casually labbing a few plays with the Carolina Panthers and a new playbook when I realized how good of a running team the Panthers are in Madden 10. I had not used Deangelo Williams all year, instead I had always used the Jacksonville Jaguars with Maurice Jones-Drew. Below is a youtube video of the first running play I labbed.
Deangelo Williams shows why he is one of the best running backs in the league:
Very cool article and a great video. Deangelo Williams is the MAN!
Im suprised that a lot of madden players don’t use this team it’s so easy to run with deangelo and stewart they can easily get you 100 yards rushing.
Panthers are beast, you know I know this (they’re my team). The defense is a top 10 NFL D, and they play like it in Madden. I know our offense got better for 2011, but we lost some key defensive players and it is important we get them replaced, or adapt to the loss.
p.s. – awesome D Will graphic, I would love that in a signature.
