What are some burning questions Carolina Panthers fans are asking following the departure of head coach Matt Rhule?

Everyone has seen the picture and videos by now. On Sunday afternoon, Bank of America Stadium, home of the Carolina Panthers, was full of fans of the opposing team. If that wasn’t bad enough, the San Francisco 49ers, handed their cross-country opponent another embarrassing loss.

These two factors, along with a lack of winning football over the last two and a quarter seasons, led David Tepper to the decision of firing Matt Rhule just hours after his team left the field.

It was a move many anticipated with the only question being when it would happen. There has been a lot of change to the coaching staff, moves that have left fans skeptical, yet cautiously optimistic going forward.

However, the play on the field still needs to improve. Especially on offense and at the quarterback position as Baker Mayfield’s play has headed on a downward trajectory since the start of the campaign.

Right now, the Panthers are on an unknown path of sorts. What becomes of the roster Rhule built? Does the organization go into a full roster reset? Who are the potential coaching candidates to replace the former Baylor headman?

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 road game against the struggling Los Angeles Rams.
