The Beat Writer covering the Carolina Panthers for The Athletic joined The Kyle Bailey Show today to look at where things stand with the Panthers heading into the home stretch of the season.
The conversation starts with Joe looking at what the QB position could look like for the Panthers next season as Joe said it feels like the Panthers are going to take a QB early in the draft as of this moment. He also pointed out that Matt Corral could be an option. When it came to Sam Darnold’s play against the Broncos Joe called his performance encouraging because he made some impressive downfield throws and didn’t screw up.
Steve Wilks future was the next topic as Joe said as of right now the Panthers brass has been impressed with how he has rallied the team and won a couple of games, and he has a shot, but he could still see David Tepper wanting to make a splash hire which makes Sunday’s game against the Seahawks a huge game for Steve Wilks future.
The final question Kyle asked Joe is what the future holds for GM Scott Fitterer after the season concludes as Joe said (David) Tepper seems to like him and it feels like he will be back, but it could depend on if they just want to get a new coach and GM at the same time.
