New Panthers HC not holding back on 2nd yr QB

Panthers rookie head coach Dave Canales isn’t holding back on his impression of now-second year QB Bryce Young.

“I think that’s one of the things that I’ve learned about him,” Canales said. “He’s like, ‘I’m glad I went through this past year. I’m glad I had the challenges of this because this is very different than anything that I’ve experienced up to this point,’ you know, and to feel him and to hear his hopefulness for where we’re headed, it’s exactly what you would hope to hear from your quarterback and, and from a guy that, that sees the best for himself going forward.”

Panthers QB has right attitude

“It’s everything, because it’s not just about the pass game and what suits him best and what puts him on his best foot, but it’s the whole offense,” Canales said. “It’s how much can we play at the line of scrimmage? How much can we do in the run game? And then how can we grow incrementally as he takes on these things and allows us to really be an attacking style of offense that we want to be?”

“The best way to do that is to refine the system and the pre-snap operation. But then also dive into the pass game and say, what does he throw with a firm back foot? That’s kind of the litmus test.”

The Panthers had the worst record in the NFL last year but traded away this years number one pick to acquire Young in the 2023 draft, so this is a massive year for Young and Canales.
