There is no dispute: The past few years for the Carolina Panthers, Cincinnati Bengals, Arizona Cardinals, and San Francisco 49ers have been a struggle.  But this year, a group of rookies have swept in and rescued these damsels in distress.  Here is my list of the “Rookie Superheroes” halfway through the season.

It is Week 9, the fifth week of bye weeks, and some big names go on vacation this weekend. You need to find someone on the waiver wire to step in and hold down the fort for a week, or maybe more in some cases.
