Sam Darnold sat down to make a fun video for the Panthers where he attempted to draw various things. He aced the sun, made a bit of the mess of a bear, and when it came to the team logo itself ... well.
Just to be clear, we’re talking about an absolute masterpiece of modern art.
I think this is an improvement, if I’m being honest. We all know what a panther looks like. Sleek, impressive, sure — but no innovation. Darnold has created a glorious buck-toothed slug that looks like a cursed burrito that became sentient while living under the sofa of a haunted house.
The Panthers immediately recognized art and have turned this drawing into their new favorite meme.
But it’s much more than just a profile pic. There’s now a movement to turn this into a shirt.

Personally, I need this to go even further. I want Darnold’s slug logo to become an alternate uniform, at least for one game a year. I don’t care if there are hoops to jump though, or whether the NFL is happy about it, I NEED a plain while uniform with no embellishment, and the slug logo on the helmet. It’s absolutely perfect.
