What are some burning questions Carolina Panthers fans are asking ahead of their Week 3 matchup against the New Orleans Saints?

There was once a time when there was excitement and optimism for the Carolina Panthers heading into the 2022 regular season. The franchise made upgrades at both offensive line and quarterback that looked to promise better execution than what fans and media alike have seen in the last two years.

Two games into the season, there is very little optimism and excitement. The Panthers are now 0-2 following another close loss to the New York Giants at Metlife Stadium, 19-16.

The loss adds yet another game in which the Panthers and head coach Matt Rhule have been unable to seal the deal and bring home a win. With the defeat, more questions have begun to rise about the head coach’s job security.

Fans are understandably pessimistic, angry, and frustrated. Many displayed their feelings when discussing the team’s loss to the Giants on social media, mainly towards the lackluster performances of the coaching staff.

You, the fans, have some questions that would like to be answered about what is next for your favorite football team. Let’s take a look at five such burning questions ahead of Sunday’s home game against the New Orleans Saints, which is another must-win contest for a team in the middle of an alarming slump.
