What are some burning questions Carolina Panthers fans have ahead of their Week 7 matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers?
In the aftermath of Matt Rhule’s firing, it was a tumultuous week for fans, players, coaches, and front-office personnel alike. From supporters, there was a slight renewal of optimism heading into the Carolina Panthers Week 6 contest against the defending Super Bowl champions, the Los Angeles Rams.
However, that spark of optimism slipped away as the Panthers’ offensive struggles continued with very little production from P.J. Walker while Christian McCaffrey was once more the engine of the lackluster group.
On top of the team’s struggles was the on-field antics of wide receiver Robbie Anderson, who displayed his frustration to the coaching staff in front of games during the game.
Joe Person of The Athletic reported that Carolina had been actively shopping Anderson for a trade partner prior to the incident. This came to fruition on Monday afternoon when the Arizona Cardinals came calling, sending a 2024 sixth-round pick and a 2025 seventh-rounder in exchange for the embattled wideout.
With Anderson gone, the Panthers can continue with their season as Steve Wilks tries to move away from the Rhule era as much as he can.
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 Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
