Panthers are bad, so bad in 16-13 loss

The Panthers lost a stinker to one of the worst teams in the NFL, cementing them at the bottom of the league. There’s no comfort in that as Carolina don’t even have their own first-round pick in 2024 after trading it to those same Bears to move up for Bryce Young.

So what went right? If anything! Let’s take a look at our takeaways from the game


I know a lot has been made of Bryce Young’s performances so far this season by I see a composed young man who is making some great plays and has basically nothing around him. The Panthers have very little WR talent and the OL is frankly horrendous. It’s hard to evaluate any one, but to me Young looks like he has all the tools.

I was a little worried when we drafted him number one, he’s very small, he runs a lot, and someone is going to snap him I thought. But he’s smarter than I thought, he protects himself, and can make some great reads. He was pressured 17 times on 44 drop backs on Thursday but didn’t turn the ball over and only gave up 3 sacks.


Offensive Coordinator Thomas Brown, however, I’m really not sure about. With 213 yards of total offence on Thursday the Panthers moved down to 30th in the league on offence, averaging just 2.7 yards per game more than the JETS! And we all know how horrific they are with Zach Wilson.

It’s had to lay all the blame on Brown, but he needs to find some things that work. He doesn’t seem to have a clue how he want’s play, what he wants to do, or how he’s going to break down a defence.

He has a lot to prove over the remainder of the season.
