CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) - The Carolina Panthers have a new look.

For the first time since joining the league in 1995, the Panthers have changed their logo. According to a press release Sunday night, the logo has been designed to provide a "more aggressive, contemporary look to the logo while making it more three-dimensional for ever-increasing digital use."

The Panthers will transition to the refined logo throughout 2012.

The primary tweaks made by the creative department of the National Football League are primarily in the features in the eye and mouth.

Team president Danny Morrison says "we have one of the finest and most recognizable logos in the NFL and wanted to make it as modern as possible without losing the dramatic essence of the mark."

The team will also change the primary logotype.

Good

They have changed coaches, players and now the logo. Now they need to change how they play. When it is 3rd and 8, don't throw a pass that is caught behind the line of scrimmage. In the two previous downs they managed to get 2 yards yet this time it will be magic and he will get the required yards for a first down?

Almost there

Now we're just a head coach and a quarterback away from a superbowl win!
