4 crucial observations from Matt Rhule’s pre-training camp presser

Matt Rhule expects the Carolina Panthers to win
As stated previously, talk is cheap for Matt Rhule and the Carolina Panthers after two seasons with almost nothing to cheer. Fans are becoming increasingly disillusioned with how things are unfolding and the calls for change will be deafening if the same happens again in 2022.
Rhule is probably all too aware of this. He’ll be the first to admit that things haven’t gone quite according to plan, but now is the time when he and everyone around the franchise expect to win.
This is all positive talk from the head coach. The Panthers also made some eye-catching additions to playing personnel and the coaching staff that should stand them in good stead moving forward.
We should find out once and for all whether Rhule is the right guy. There were scapegoats aplenty last season after losing 12 of their final 14 games, but the man in charge doesn’t have anything like the same luxury this time around.
Rhule is under a huge amount of pressure to get Carolina back on track. Improvements were few and far between in 2021, but all hope is not lost if everything clicks into place over the next few weeks at Wofford College.
