Carolina Panthers Reason No. 3: Joe Brady’s scheme

Offensive coordinator Joe Brady was the most important hire that the Carolina Panthers made outside of head coach Matt Rhule. The progressive young mind is coming into the NFL riding on the crest of a wave. And this is something that could see Teddy Bridgewater reach new heights.

Brady was the mastermind behind a historic passing season for LSU on their way to a National Championship in 2019. His innovative play-calling made the most out of almost every weapon the Tigers’ possessed. And he played a leading role in the transformation of quarterback Joe Burrow from a mid-round prospect to the consensus No. 1 overall pick.

If the new arrival can make the same sort of impact with Bridgewater and the Panthers, then the sky is the limit. They are no strangers to each other having spent time together at the New Orleans Saints. And this should ease the transition somewhat in a difficult offseason that might not see much face-to-face interaction before Carolina’s week one opener against the Las Vegas Raiders.

The coordinator was renowned for getting the ball downfield early and often during his time at LSU. Bridgewater’s deep ball accuracy has been something of concern on his way back to prominence. But Rhule is confident this can emerge as a surprising asset to call upon.

D.J. Moore, Robby Anderson, and Curtis Samuel all have the pace to burn. And the way Brady used his tight ends in college spells good news for Ian Thomas in the red zone if he can get separation.

The benefits for Bridgewater will be endless thanks to the presence of Brady. Who will know more than most how to get the best out of him.
