    Here are your 2019 Carolina White Panthers (starters in bold):

    Offense:

    QB - Kyle Allen, Will Grier
    RB - Christian McCaffrey
    OL - Greg Van Roten, Matt Paradis, Tyler Larsen
    TE - Greg Olsen
    WR - Chris Hogan, Brandon Zylstra

    Defense:

    LB - Luke Kuechly, Jordan Kunaszyk
    DB - Colin Jones

    Special Teams: K Joey Slye, P Michael Palardy, LS JJ Jansen

    The Panthers are almost an anti-Caste team in that they have a white running back, two white wide receivers, and a white defensive back, while their starting quarterback is black and their offensive line is heavily sumo.

    Christian McCaffrey is of course the main reason to watch this team. If all goes well he should have an amazing year running over the Caste system. Luke Kuechly and Greg Olsen should provide additional superstar power at their respective positions. It remains to be seen how much and how well the Panthers will utilize Chris Hogan, especially with sCam throwing to him. Linebacker Jordan Kunaszyk was considered a long shot to make the roster, but he beat the odds. Unfortunately, he and Colin Jones likely won't get much playing time, being buried on the depth chart.

    Total White starters: 5

    Total White players on 53-man roster: 15

    Overall Grade: D

    They also released Torry Smith, which means Zylstra and Hogan will be competing for snaps behind DJ Moore and Curtis Samuel. Samuel has missed 10 games over the past 2 seasons.

    I think it's safe to say if the new QB has another good game, it'll be hard for Newton to get his job back. But then again, if Newton's proclaimed to be healthy and doesn't start, the blacks on the team might sabotage the new QB. There's always that possibility.

    Newton can be a bit of a dope, but I thought he was a legit 1st rounder and his coaching staff had enough sense to get Greg Olson, but the experts here are right, he is on the backslope. If it weren't for Cmac being there I would hope he would auger in the Panthers and their locker room like a Stuka with stuck controls. FTR I can be a bit of a jerk, if you actively or passively support something that keeps me from having nice things I will work like a beaver to make sure you have no chance at nice things.

    It's too early to say definitely but there's a chance that Carolina may have found their quarterback of the future - Kyle Allen. Allen always did have talent but didn't maximize it in college, for whatever reasons. He may end up being a better pro than college player.

    From black journalist, quoting a black former player, there's a lot voices like that out there:

    I hope it works out for Allen, but the system is still stacked against him.

    If it does and sCam gets bounced out, he won't settle for being a second-stringer on any team, so I hope he displaces another black quarterback.

    If it does work out for Allen as he is a far superior QB than Newton, who would want an injury prone prima dona with limited skillsets at QB? There are so many more white QBs that are far better than Newton to choose from.
