Oftentimes, it takes years for new franchises to get off the ground and running before they become true contenders in the National Football League. However, the Carolina Panthers have been one of the exceptions since debuting in 1995.
Since entering the league, the Panthers have quickly established themselves as tough competition, particularly in the AFC South division. The team has made four playoff appearances throughout its history, including one in Super Bowl XXXVIII. The Panthers ultimately lost to the New England Patriots in the match-up, 32-29, but Carolina has continued to make its presence known in the American Football Conference.
The Panthers have one conference championship under the belt, along with three division championships. Defensive end, Reggie White, was the first and only player to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame after participating with the organization. On a similar note, number 51 is the only one to have been retired with the franchise, once belonging to Sam Mills. However, the new talent that the team continues to bring in may result in more Hall of Famers in the future.
