What are some things that the Carolina Panthers need to improve on despite their impressive winning streak that now stands at three games?
It is an exciting time to be a Carolina Panthers fan. Their complete turnaround in fortunes since losing two games in succession to start the 2020 season now sees them with a winning record and plenty of reasons to be encouraged going forward.
New head coach Matt Rhule deserves all the credit in the world. He has overcome some substantial adversity during his first few months with the Carolina Panthers. But through it all has emerged a roster that is cohesive and only going to get better as the campaign goes on.
It is remarkable that Carolina finds itself at 3-2 during this stage of their development. Everything seems to have clicked into place right away and the coaching staff seems to know what they’re doing after going through their fair share of complications over the first couple of weeks.
There was plenty of trepidation surrounding the Panthers this season, and with good reason. They decided to completely transform their roster, which found former leading figures such as Cam Newton, Mario Addison, James Bradberry, and Greg Olsen on the outside looking in. And the organization was dealt another real blow when linebacker Luke Kuechly decided to retire in a bid to preserve his long-term health.
Things not appear to be a lot rosier than at any stage during the preparation period. But there are still some areas of play that need to improve to give them an extra boost against some stern challenges in the coming weeks.
Let’s take a look at four such areas that will need some brushing up.
