The Carolina Panthers are arguably the most balanced team in the entire NFL, and it’s all thanks to their two leaders: Cam Newton and Luke Kuechly.

Kuechly is probably the best middle linebacker in the game today. He matches speed, power and, most of all, intelligence. It’s one thing to possess the physical traits to cover both pass and run, but to know what plays are coming – to predetermine not only the call, but also the outcome – that is the sign of a true legend in the making. Ever since he stepped into the league, Kuechly has been a defensive anchor for the Panthers.

And then on the other side of the ball resides Cam Newton, the $100 million man himself. Newton has played at another level this season, and with every game gets a little better. Doubt his ability to throw the ball and he’ll light you up for five passing touchdowns. Drop back into covereage and play the pass, he’ll burn you with his legs. Yes, the game is finally slowing down for Superman.

Beyond the skills, Newton also makes the games fun. He may rankle some feathers with his dancing, but overall sane people can agree that he’s just a grown man happy to be making a living off a child’s game. Might as well have a little fun with it.

Just how much does the winning and fun translate with fans? Well, according to the DICK’S Sporting Goods Jersey Report both Newton and Kuechly are among the top jersey sellers for players taking the field on Thanksgiving Day. That’s right, with America’s Team, the Dallas Cowboys, and the Green Bay Packers both playing on Sunday, it’s a pair of guys from Charlotte having their just desserts.
