Panthers HC excited for year 2 of Young

After a hard year the Carolina Panthers have a new head coach in Dave Canales, and he thinks last years new QB is going to shine in 2024.

“No big plan to fix him. He’s got the tools that we saw a year ago,” said Canales. “For me, it’s about building an offense that we can be proud of, something that is tough, something that is smart, that takes care of the football.

“It’s really elevating the whole group, and just asking Bryce to do his part of it.”

Panthers happy with Young’s skills

“I just see a really accurate player, a real decisive player,” Canales said of Young. “For him, some of the basic things, that for any quarterback improvement is footwork. Let’s continue to grow more specific to the pass concept, more specific to who is this person running this route?”

“Three different receivers run the same route, it could be three different things. That’s a coaching thing. Maximizing some of his abilities are going to help that.”

“I think the average pass comes out in 2.2 seconds,” Canales said. “For our concepts, if you kind of get more specific to what we’re trying to do, the ball gets to the checkdown in about 2.7, definitely under 3.”

“Bryce better be really be moving towards the line of scrimmage, ready to take off, checking it down to the back in three seconds or less. We’re really committed to getting the ball out. This is going to be a big emphasis for Bryce. We’re going to be on a clock every single time in the spring, every single time in camp. I’m selling to Ickey, I’m selling to these tackles, be aggressive and we’re going to get the ball out.”

The Panthers need Bryce Young to pick it up in year 2 after struggling in year 1, but there was no doubt that he showed a smooth stroke and the ability to make plays. There’s also no doubt that the Panthers were a mess under Frank Reich and that surely stunted Young’s process in his rookie season.
