After an 0-3 start to the 2023 season for the Panthers, there is a lot of vitriol from the Panthers fan base, and they are seeking to find someone to blame. After firing Matt Rhule, and hiring Frank Reich, the belief was that the losing the franchise had endured since 2017 was going to come to an end, and the winning football that Dave Tepper promised when he bought the team, was on the horizon. While that still may be true, it is hard to see that with the current brand of football we've seen so far in 2023, and the schedule is not going to do them any favors with a strip to Miami looming before the bye.
The Panthers are now 0-3 to begin a season for the first time since 2010 after a 37-27 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on the road on Sunday. This was a game that was filled with more frustration for Panthers fan because of an unfathomable seven false start penalties and another lackluster performance from the […]
by Sharon Thorsland So things aren’t exactly going as planned for the Panthers. There have been injuries to key players, the offense can’t get anything going, and now they’re probably starting a new quarterback with rookie Bryce Young dealing with an ankle injury. And to top it all off, they have to play in arguably […]
With all of the focus entering Sunday's game on the health of Bryce Young, who has been ruled out of the Week 3 contest, you may have overlooked the fact that there is a game to be played, and even Seattle is dealing with injuries of their own. The Seahawks, who are 1-1, after opening the season with a loss to the Rams, before winning in Detroit last weekend, boast one of the more efficient offenses in the NFL, even with Charles Cross not 100% healthy. Cross, was not a participant in practice today, and if he's not able to go, that opens the door for Brian Burns to feast all game long.
The Panthers are ready to head for Seattle as they look to pick up their first win of the season and they will most likely be doing it without their starting quarterback. The team announced shortly after the conclusion of practice on Thursday that Bryce Young isn’t expected to play after he missed his second […]
Believe it or not, after an 0-2 start, the season is in fact not over for the Carolina Panthers. although to hear the fans say it, it might as well be. Sure history might not be on Carolina's side to win the NFC South or make the postseason as a wild card, but were those ever realistic expectations, for a franchise that hired a new head coach, and drafted a rookie QB? Now look, it is fair to say that you may not have expected the offense to look as bad as it has to start the season, or you didn't think the team would miss Austin Corbett as much as they have, but it still doesn't justify the outrage and frustration after two weeks. Whether the Panthers admitted publicly or not, this is a franchise in transition, and that is exactly what we're seeing on the football field.
For the fourth time in the last five seasons, the Panthers have started the season 0-2 after a deflating loss in their home opener to the New Orleans Saints 20-17 last night. Despite another stellar defensive performance, the team was unable to capitalize offensively, scoring just nine points and totaling 164 yards of total offense […]
Last night's loss to the New Orleans Saints, dropped the Carolina Panthers to 0-2 on the 2023 season, with both losses coming in the division, and as you could imagine, the fallout has been extreme. After trading up to draft Bryce Young in the NFL Draft, after hiring an all-star coaching staff, expectations were high for the Panthers to return to being competitive both in the division and in the NFC overall. And while all of those things are still possible, given the struggles on the offensive side of the football, it's harder to see that vision coming to fruition this season.
Panthers legend Steve Smith joined Kyle Bailey for his weekly visit on WFNZ as he previewed tonight’s Monday Night Football game between the Saints and Panthers. Before the talk went to the game, Steve looked at both the Falcons and Buccaneers starting the year 2-0 as he said that while it doesn’t make tonight’s game […]
by Sharon Thorsland So the season opener didn’t exactly go as planned for the Panthers, who fell to the Falcons 24-10. They’ll get another chance to pick up a division win when they take on the Saints on Monday Night Football in their home opener. The Saints barely eked out a 16-15 win over the […]
