The Carolina Panthers are about to embark on their most important offseason in recent memory. Head coach Matt Rhule is under pressure to make a change in direction. The team owner David Tepper gave Rhules a seven-year contract despite little progress on the field. Free agency and the 2022 NFL Draft are fast approaching. The Panthers cannot afford to be left behind in this scenario.
Carolina Panthers have about $20 million in available cap space for this year's free-agent period. Most of that money will be spent on draft picks and signing Stephon Gilmore. The Panthers are looking for a quarterback and team identity. They are unlikely to find their answer to their QB problems with this free agent class. However, they can make some shrewd additions to the roster.
Panthers announce Ben McAdoo as their new offensive coordinator. He replaces Joe Brady, who was fired after the second season. Mcadoo was the offensive coach for the Giants before being promoted to the top job after Tom Coughlin's departure. The Panthers finished 29th in points and 30th on the ground in the 2021 season, but Christian McCaffrey's return to health might not mean much if they can't improve the play at the quarterback position.
Matt Rhule fired a lot of assistant coaches at Baylor. He's looking for an offensive coordinator. The Panthers are in a situation where they need to make a change in their coaching staff. Rhules and his staff will go to Alabama for Senior Bowl practices early next month. They will also go there a year after the Panthers coached in Mobile. A month after that, the NFL teams and prospects will come to Indianapolis for the scouting combine.
Howell is on Detroit's Senior Bowl roster. Kiper has Malik Willis off the board to Washington at Pick 11. He also has Pittsburgh quarterback Kenny Pickett to New Orleans at pick 18 and Ole Miss’ Matt Corrall to the Steelers at picks 20. Kipers has Desmond Ridder falling to Day 2 in this mock. It's worth noting Howell is a tricky evaluation and could drop to Round 2. Jared Goff was ultra-sharp through his final five games of the season. Goff completed nearly 70% of his passes and threw 11 touchdowns to only two interceptions. The Lions coach Dan Campbell and general manager Brad Holmes gave Goff props for his finish to his season as well.
The Carolina Panthers have not had a good quarterback for a long time. Cam Newton was injured in 2019 and Teddy Bridgewater failed to live up to his contract. General manager Scott Fitterer is considering the 2022 NFL Draft to pick a quarterback. He likes the play of Kenny Pickett. The Panthers hold the 6th overall pick in the draft. They will probably focus on the offensive line. If they do, they will pick an elite tackle. It is possible that they would choose a veteran player instead. Carolina will talk to their coaches and coach Matt Ryan. He will also talk with their offensive coordinator Matt Cherel.
Jets' young corners played well above expectations this season. They allowed just under 260 passing yards and 28 to 7 touchdown to interception ratio. The Jets will look to upgrade their corners this offseason.
The Carolina Panthers 2021 season has come to an end. The team fired three assistant coaches. Matt Rhule's job security is uncertain. There are no more offensive coordinator vacancies. Sam Darnold is the future quarterback for the New York Jets.
Sam Darnold and Cam Newton were terrible this season. They are not the best quarterbacks for the Carolina Panthers. David Tepper will continue to look for a new starting quarterback. He has already signed Cam to a contract. This list includes Dararnolds, who is still under contract, and the three most likely starting quarterbacks heading into next season, which excludes him.
Historically speaking, wins came quickly to the Carolina Panthers, and the team may be considered one of the NFL’s great expansion franchises. Of all teams born in 1976 or later, only the Seattle Seahawks have a better cumulative winning percentage (NFLbets is not counting the Baltimore Ravens as an expansion franchise, because all denial aside, the Ravens were a case of reincarnation rather than rebirth). And despite a couple of ugly outliers (2001, 2010), the Panthers all-time at 182-183-1 are less than a half-game under .500 going into 2018.
The Panthers’ short lifetime, devoted fanbase and relatively consistent success have led the club to employ just four head coaches in its first 24 seasons, and so the “eras” of the Panthers’ brief history may be neatly categorized.
Debuting in 1995, the Panthers hired then-Pittsburgh Steelers defensive coordinator Dom Capers as head coach the team, which managed a record-setting 7-9 inaugural season and a run to the NFC championship game after going 12-4 in ’96. In two subsequent years, Capers could not get Carolina back into the postseason, bust his success piloting the Panthers certainly directly led to his hiring by the expansion Houston Texans in 2002.
The George Seifert Era lasted three years, culminated in the aforementioned 2001 season featuring Chris Weinke at quarterback “leading” the team to a 1-15 record, and is best forgotten.
John Fox took over on the sidelines for the Panthers in 2002 and enjoyed some success over the next nine seasons, thrice making the playoffs and playing in the very odd and endlessly fascinating Super Bowl XXXVIII. However, Fox’s teams often produced mediocre results in seasons with tougher schedules – five teams Fox Panthers were 7-9 or 8-8 – and the team bottomed out at 2-14 in ’10.
When Ron Rivera became head coach for 2011, the team was transformed across the board. Throughout the 10s, mercurial and thrilling QB Cam Newton had led dangerous offenses with names like Johnathan Stewart, DeAngelo Williams, Steve Smith and Greg Olsen while Luke Kuechly has crushed it for the defense. Going into the ’19 season, the Panthers’ peak remains the 15-1 season of ’15 which led to an unfortunate demolishment by a brilliant Denver Broncos defense in Super Bowl 50.
Tell you what, though: If this franchise follows its overall trend thus far, Panthers fans should probably expect a one- or two-win season in 2019 or ’20, followed by yet another resurgence – after all, this cat’s got at least five more lives to go…
