What were some of the key observations from the first episode of Carolina Panthers Confidential, which was released this week?

There was plenty of anticipation in the air on Thursday as the Carolina Panthers released the long-awaited Panthers Confidential, a behind-the-scenes look at what transpired throughout another eventful offseason period for the organization.

It did not disappoint.

The production was once again top-notch, which is to be expected from the Panthers content team. More importantly, it gave a tremendous account of exactly what went on both during free agency, the 2021 NFL Draft, and the days that followed.

It’s hard to look at Carolina’s roster and think the team is not in a better position than they were when the 2020 campaign came to a conclusion. Those in power left no stone unturned when it came to improving their options in every phase of the football and hopefully, this can translate into a winning formula that gets the Panthers back into postseason contention at the earliest possible opportunity.

With this in mind, let’s take a look at four key takeaways from Panthers Confidential, which has gone down incredibly well with the team’s fanbase and NFL fans alike.

Everyone is on the same page

One of the more refreshing things that emerged from Panthers Confidential was how well Matt Rhule and Scott Fitterer worked together in pursuit of the same goal. This came across throughout the video and bore more significance from the footage shown within the draft war room.

This is only going to mean good things for Carolina moving forward. Having two men in positions of power who are pulling in the same direction is the cornerstone behind every successful franchise and something that’s been sorely missing from the Panthers under previous regimes.

Their communication, chemistry, and mentality, coupled with some useful input from scouts and team owner David Tepper, is something that was so pleasing to see.

Whether this is going to come with an immediate turnaround in fortunes on the field is another matter, but fans can rest safe in the knowledge the Panthers have the right people in place to get the organization back to prominence.
