What offseason moves made by the Carolina Panthers are already paying off just three weeks into the 2022 campaign?

It didn’t take a genius to figure out that big changes were coming to the Carolina Panthers this offseason. Those in power within the organization left no stone unturned to put everything in place for head coach Matt Rhule during a dramatic few months that left many feeling positive about what could be accomplished.

Although the Panthers find themselves at 1-2 through three games, their important victory over the New Orleans Saints could be the springboard to improved fortunes. Carolina finds itself right on the brink, so what comes next in the coming weeks will be the key component behind success or failure throughout the current campaign.

Carolina isn’t out of the woods yet. But there is now a glimmer of hope that the team can finally start putting a decent run of results together in Year 3 of Rhule’s tenure.

With that being said, we picked four offseason moves that already seem to be paying off for the Panthers in 2022.

Carolina Panthers hired Chris Tabor

Getting better on special teams was imperative for the Carolina Panthers this season. The appointment of coordinator Chris Tabor has seen a drastic turnaround in fortunes through three weeks.

The experienced figure is among the league’s most respected minds in this key area of play. Tabor has everyone on the same page, with coverages more disciplined and plenty of big-time plays coming to light for good measure.

This was a tremendous hire by the Panthers based on what we’ve seen so far. Judging by their Week 3 showing against the New Orleans Saints, they’re only going to improve moving forward.
