Muhsin Muhammad - An All-Time Underrated Carolina Panthers Great

Accomplished professional Chad Faglier has served as a project manager in the home-building industry in Charlotte, North Carolina. Apart from his work life, Chad Faglier is an avid fan of the NFL’s Carolina Panthers. 

Few would argue that names like Julius Peppers and Steve Smith, Sr., belong among the pantheon of all-time great Carolina Panthers. Some contributors, however, have gone largely unrecognized for their efforts over the years. According to NFL.com, Muhsin Muhammad is one of the most prominent names on that list.

Muhammad ranks in the top 20 for receptions in league history. Additionally, his 11,436 career receiving yards are good for 24th on the all-time list. His 2004 season stands out as the best in his career, during which time he racked up 1,405 yards on 93 receptions. For the next two seasons, however, Muhammad tallied more than 90 catches - an impressive feat for any NFL receiver. Consistency is the hallmark of his career, however, as he achieved at least 50 receptions per year over his last nine seasons in Carolina.
