The Carolina Panthers come into Madden NFL 15 as a very strong team.  Although they may not be on the level of the 49ers or Seahawks yet, they have the pieces to compete with any team in the virtual gridiron.

We have the full team breakdown below.

Team: Carolina Panthers

Offensive Strategy: Run the football.  The Panthers have the most options of any team in terms of running the football.  Cam Newton is one of the best scrambling quarterbacks in the game, Mike Tolbert is a top 5 fullback, and Jonathan Stewart and DeAngelo Williams are always hard to stop.

Defensive Strategy: The Panthers have great pass rushers and Star Lotulelei is awesome at stopping the run.  You may need to drop a few extra guys into coverage to help out the secondary a little.

Strengths: The running game and defensive front 7.  The Panthers have a scary front 7 in Madden 15.  You should easily be able to get a few sacks per game and have no trouble stopping the run.

Weaknesses: Secondary.  While it isn’t a huge weakness, it is an area that isn’t exactly a strength. either.  It will be hard for the Panthers to match up against some of the more explosive passing attacks in Madden NFL 15.

Impact Players: QB Cam Newton, HB DeAngelo Williams, HB Jonathan Stewart, FB Mike Tolbert, TE Greg Olsen, WR Kelvin Benjamin, LE Charles Johnson, RE Greg Hardy, DT Star Lotulelei, ROLB Thomas Davis, MLB Luke Kuechly, CB Antoine Cason, FS Thomas Decoud

Key Newcomers: WR Kelvin Benjamin, DE Kony Ealy, WR Jerricho Cotchery, FS Thomas Decoud

Additional Remarks: The Panthers have an exciting team this year.  Even though Cam Newton may not be in the top 5 rated overall quarterbacks, he is absolutely one of the best Madden quarterbacks.
