Kalil, the center for the Panthers, took out a full-page ad in the Charlotte Observer explaining why Carolina will win Super Bowl XLVII. The Panthers haven’t made the playoffs since 2008, and haven’t won a playoff game since January 2005 (over Chicago). It matters not!
They have electrifying QB Cam Newton, who only had one of the best rookie seasons for a QB in NFL history. They picked up a franchise linebacker in Luke Kuechly in the April draft, which should help their shaky defense. The Saints don’t have their coach this year. The Falcons, overrated to begin with, seem ready for a slide. Don’t let last year’s 6-10 fool ya – the Panthers will be a playoff contender in the NFC.
The newspaper industry thanks you for the full-page AD, Mr. Kalil, and every paper in every market wishes an NFL player would do the same. Yes, even someone from the Oakland Raiders, which might be the worst team in football.
