The article presents information related to the football team Carolina Panthers. Will Witherspoon, a potential free agent after 2005, has emerged as a difference-maker. He has the quickness to be a sideline-to-sideline run stopper and is equally valuable as a pass defender. Mike Rucker dedicated himself to getting in better shape in the offseason. Steve Smith has been terrific, but there's no other consistent offensive threat. Defenses can either focus on stopping Smith or let him get his catches and yards and shut down the other parts of the offense.
