And that's the first thing you need to know about a Carolina Panthers team that is generally unfamiliar -- aside from their quarterback -- to most of the sports world: They are the type of group that travels with its own speaker system to road games.
In fact, as far as introductions to the Panthers go, Sunday's postgame celebration might have been the perfect fishbowl moment, an evening that provided a glimpse at the type of fun this group will provide if, indeed, this undefeated season endures the postseason.
Think the Panthers seem like a boring, gritty team from a small market with little appeal aside from Cam Newton's flashy smile? Oh, you couldn't be more wrong. For those who do, indeed, know this team, the eventual introduction to an unknowing sports world might just be the most appetizing part of the whole thing.
Picture, if you will, 30 grown men bouncing to the beat of Lil Wayne's "3 Peat", singing together, in celebration of their third consecutive NFC South title, which they locked up Sunday. Picture 12 players assembling together for an impromptu group picture. Picture Tolbert turning off the rap music and putting on a Kings of Leon jam called "Fans", before a hoard of Panthers starts chanting Greg Olsen's name, because this was his song.
Then picture Olsen, seemingly playing the role of Sunshine from "Remember the Titans", belting the lyrics to a rock song, in a suddenly quiet room full of players who seemed far more engaged by the previous hip-hop tunes.
Yes, this felt like something out of a Disney movie. And that's because the largely unknown, largely disrespected players on this team are so enchanted by each other, by the family around them, that they don't really even seem to care that they're largely unknown and largely disrespected. They embody that dream scenario of players who could preach all day about the "haters" but would rather spend their time looking around in awe of one another, loving every second of this undefeated run they believe they've earned through selfless hard work.
Go figure. Aside from being undefeated, the most discussed storyline off the field about this squad might be Newton's seemingly selfish-at-times personality. Soon, however, it could be time to see this team for what it really is.
Here's the point in all of this: The Panthers aren't just a team loaded with good football players. They are a team loaded with good people, the type of people you'll find yourself wanting to cheer on.
No doubt, other teams possess these types of locker rooms, too. The Arizona Cardinals, for instance, are another group that will impress the sports world when we finally start to get to know them.
But on Sunday, as the Panthers pulled out the boxes of hats celebrating their division title, the truth became as clear as the music ripping through the speakers in Tolbert's locker: You might not yet know this group. You might not yet have seen them play very often. But soon, you will.
And you'll wonder why we didn't bother to get to know them sooner.
