What are some burning questions Carolina Panthers fans are asking ahead of their Week 5 matchup against the 2-2 San Francisco 49ers?

Moral for Carolina Panthers fans is at a low once more, and it seems worse than what it was after their Week 2 loss at the New York Giants. They dropped to 1-3 on the season after yet another underwhelming performance by quarterback Baker Mayfield and the offense in defeat to the Arizona Cardinals, 26-16.

It’s another loss that brings even more questions from fans as to why the team continues to struggle and head coach Matt Rhule’s job security. Many are beginning to wonder when enough is enough and if a change is coming anytime in the near future.

The organization seems to be at a tipping point. While it might be too soon to make alterations, that may come sooner if the team continues its lack of production.

Defensive coordinator Phil Snow’s unit persists to play well and hard throughout each game. But it continues to break down as the offense cannot stay on the field long enough.

At 1-3 and a schedule that features the NFC Championship teams from a season ago and Tom Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Panthers could be in for a very long and rough October unless things start trending in a positive direction.

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 such burning questions ahead of Sunday’s home game against the San Francisco 49ers, which looks to be a difficult matchup against the NFL’s No. 1 defense.
