The Carolina Panthers probably got one of the worst of the bunch, and I personally believed that there couldn’t possibly be an uglier hat. So to that end, I started searching the internet in pursuit of some that might be even worse. I did lay out some ground rules to try and keep things fair.The hats must have the current logo and be available for purchase. We all know we had some truly grotesque creations back in the mid 90s with our electric font. With the new logo, we should have moved on. We did not.The hats must be standard baseball cap style.The hats cannot be simply alternately colored versions of a basic hat. For example, a red Panthers hat and logo made to coordinate with a specific outfit. I made one exception to this, which you’ll see in a moment.Without further adieu... here are my findings:10. New Era 2018 NFL Draft hat “Two States One Team”neweracap.comNew Era is going to be responsible for a lot of hats on this list, and they are forming a tradition of terrible draft hats. Everyone loves a nice bulky embroider of a slogan that only the Carolina Panthers find helpful in marketing themselves to two separate states. The problem, is that a person lives in just one of those two states, if at all. 9. New Era Carolina Panthers Color Rush 9FIFTY Snapbackneweracap.comThe problem with blotting out the entire Panthers logo into one color, is that the logo relies on the different colors to provide a 3D contour to the face of the Panther. This one is particularly bad, because it makes the Panther look like someone hit it in the nose with a baseball bat.8. New Era “When you stroke your Panthers head too hard”http://www.officialpanthersfootballauthentic.comIt’s like someone drew the team logo, but then sprayed it with water so that everything sagged. Or, it looks like my cat when I pet his head too firmly. Either way, leave the logo alone!7. Carolina Panthers Galaxy Snapback Hathttp://www.soundincentive.orgThis hat would probably be the ugliest hat Carolina Panthers Customized Jerseys , if it weren’t clearly intended to be ostentatious. There is a big difference between designing a hat to stand out by being hideous, and designing a hat that you think looks good which is actually hideous. This is the former, and would probably be championed by children, hipsters ironically watching sports, and millennials.6. New Era Carolina Panthers Zubaz Allover 9TWENTY Adjustableneweracap.comFor that time when you’re a Panther trying to blend in with a herd of electric blue Zebras, this would be perfect. We are starting to tread into “Myrtle Beach Strip Hat” territory here, and also in this next one...5. New Era Carolina Panthers Marbled 9FIFTY Snapbackneweracap.comOkay. Now THIS is classic Myrtle Beach. Take something decent and airbrush the hell out of it, more stylish, right? Now let’s go eat terrible eggs at a “Famous Pancake House,” relax on 5 square feet of beach, and sit in traffic for an hour between each.4. Carolina Panthers Fluorescent Snap-back hathttp://www.soundincentive.orgThis is also apparently a New Era cap, but I couldn’t find a trace of it on New Era’s site, probably for good reason. That was extremely ill advised. Yo dawg, I heard you like Panthers logos, so I put more Panthers logos in your Panthers logos. 3. New Era Carolina Panthers 2019 Draft Spotlight 59FIFTY Fittedneweracap.comThis is an alternate version of the much talked about 2019 Draft hat from New Era, and honestly, it’s a vast improvement over the blocky mess of the official one. Keeping things together in one color, that I’m guessing is supposed to represent the dark blue that both states share in their flags (even though that isn’t this particular blue) Carolina Panthers T-Shirts , helps to keep this one cleaner looking. It still bothers me that the logos are not centered over each other, and that really this was ever attempted in the first place.2. New Era Carolina Panthers 2019 Draft On Stage Low Profile 59FIFTY Fittedneweracaps.comTerrible. Just absolutely terrible. For all the reasons already discussed. But somehow... not the worst I found.1. Fanatics Carolina Panthers Pro Line Khaki Adjustable Dad Hatnflshop.comKrikey mate! I want to go on safari, but I also want to show my team spirit in a way that won’t spook the animals, so I’m going to buy a khaki colored hat with the world’s hilariously smallest team logo right in the center of it. WHY DOES THIS HAT EXIST? Why is it called a Dad hat?Who in the world would buy this thing? I truly didn’t think I would find a hat that looked worse than the 2019 Draft hat, but somehow, it exists. “Oh, but it looks good on you though.” —Rodney Dangerfield, Caddyshackhttps://thumbs.gfycat.comCongrats Fanatics, you win the worlds most terrible hat lottery. CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP)Panthers coach Ron Rivera sent a clear message to his players Monday: Forget about Atlanta. Rivera took only a couple questions during his press conference about his team’s uninspiring performance in a 22-10 loss to the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday before saying he was done talking about it. Rather than allow a bad New Year’s Day football hangover to linger, the two-time NFL Coach of the Year told his players it is time to move on and turn their attention to next Sunday’s NFC wild card game at New Orleans. ”The big thing that we need to do more than anything else is to move forward and get past the game we just played,” Rivera said. ”Right now that game isn’t going to do anything for us.” The Panthers had plenty of momentum entering the regular season finale having won seven of their previous eight games. Had Carolina beat Atlanta, they would have won the NFC South and had a home playoff game. Now they’re limping into the postseason and likely will have to win three in a row on the road to reach the Super Bowl. Cam Newton’s struggles in one of the worst games of his career could be cause for concern entering the postseason. Newton missed on his first eight passes against Atlanta, his throws often sailing high and wide of his intended targets and could never get on track. It hasn’t helped that the Panthers wide receiver position has been besieged by injuries, leaving Newton with a cast of no-name players . One thing is for certain: Newton and the offense will need to be on its game Sunday against the Saints. The Panthers (11-5) don’t appear to match up well with the Saints (11-5), particularly on defense where they’ve been unable to slow drew Brees and the NFC South champions. New Orleans clobbered Carolina 34-13 in Charlotte in September, then beat them again 31-21 on Dec. 3 at the Superdome to take control of the NFC South. Panthers coordinator Steve Wilks, who said he has already received interview requests for head coaching vacancies with the Giants , Colts and Lions, wants to stop the Saints running game first. Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara found gaping holes against the Panthers, helping the Saints average 148.5 yards per game on the ground along with four touchdowns in those two games. They struggled with wrapping up Kamara and getting him to the ground. ”Their running game right now is dynamic,” Wilks said. ”That is the most important thing we have to stop.” He also said the Panthers need to be physical at the line of scrimmage with the Saints receivers to throw off Brees’ timing. Brees has had a field day against Carolina too, completing 74.6 percent of his passes (47 of 63) for 465 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions. Panthers defensive end Mario Addison points to self-inflicted mistakes in the wo previous losses to New Orleans. ”It really ain’t what they’re doing, it’s really what we’re doing,” Addison said. ”It’s hard to play against a team and beat yourself at the same time. That’s what we did the first two times – we beat ourselves. It ain’t that they outplayed us, because they didn’t. We just made too many mistakes.” As for the it’s-hard-to-beat-a-team-three-times theory, well, that doesn’t hold much water in the NFL. Since 1970, there have been 20 teams that went 2-0 against an opponent during the regular season before facing them again in the postseason. Thirteen times those teams completed the sweep by winning the playoff game. However, Addison said losing to Saints twice benefits the Panthers. ”We can’t let them beat us three times,” Addison said. ”You have to come out swinging and throw everything at them, including the kitchen sink.” Some help could be on the way for Carolina. Rivera said he’s optimistic that safety Kurt Coleman will be back after missing Sunday’s game with an ankle injury and running back Jonathan Stewart should return after sitting out against the Falcons with a stiff back. Also, guard Trai Turner could return if he clears the NFL concussion protocol. Turner has missed the last three games. —
