What were the bitter disappointments to emerge from the another pathetic Carolina Panthers loss at the Los Angeles Rams in Week 6?
New head coach, same problems as the Carolina Panthers fell to 1-5 on the season. Phil Snow was let go alongside head coach Matt Rhule after their Week 5 loss against the San Francisco 49ers, but Ben McAdoo remained the offensive coordinator this scheme once again proved to be their undoing at the Los Angeles Rams.
The Panthers only scored 10 points, with six off those coming from a Donte Jackson pick-six. Carolina’s offense has to in considered among the worst in franchise history even with Christian McCaffrey performing to an extremely high level.
With just 203 total yards, the Panthers’ offense looks to be going backward in terms of overall production. The downfield passing game is non-existent, with no threat of the deep ball defenses can squat on everything, making windows smaller and smaller.
The Panthers have looked abysmal all season on the offensive side of the ball and that will not change if McAdoo is calling the plays. The lack of adjustments is a huge concern as it looks like nothing alters from drive to drive or coming out after the break.
This negated another encouraging defensive outing in Week 6 before the group began to tire. Interim head coach Steve Wilks has a substantial amount of work ahead, but whether he can end a deeply concerning run of results is a different question.
With that being said, here are three bitter disappointments to the 24-10 loss at SoFi Stadium.
