Which directions could the Carolina Panthers season go following their loss to the Chicago Bears?

The Carolina Panthers now find themselves back at 3-3 after a disappointing home loss at the hands of the Chicago Bears. All the positive momentum surrounding the organization seems to have vanished in a matter of hours and it will be interesting to see how they respond with some big challenges upcoming on the schedule.

One must take into account the substantial changes made by the Carolina Panthers during the preparation period. They came into the campaign with a new-look roster that appeared devoid of any veteran leadership, with their coaching staff also learning on the job due to not calling plays at the next level before.

This is a season that will be assessed with the bigger picture in mind. But we are starting to get a clearer indication of the positives and negatives across Carolina’s roster through the first six weeks.

There has been plenty of good, and definitely some bad. But considering the lack of expectations that even had some putting them as the prime frontrunner for the Trevor Lawrence sweepstakes, their .500 record can be seen as an achievement at this juncture.

Carolina’s outlook might change if things continue to go south in the coming weeks. They travel to the New Orleans Saints and Kansas City Chiefs, with a home fixture against the Atlanta Falcons sandwiched in-between. This is a critical period of the campaign for Matt Rhule’s men and here are three possible directions their season could go from here.
