Carolina Panthers believe in themselves

Losing football is always tough to watch for fans. But for the players, it became demoralizing beyond measure with no end in sight under Matt Rhule, who utilized every excuse under the sun before team owner David Tepper eventually pulled the plug.

The Carolina Panthers are gradually developing into a solid organization. More importantly, the increased belief across the franchise compared to earlier in 2022 is night and day.

Steve Wilks is proud to hail from the Carolinas and has developed a close affinity with the fanbase. They are on board with what’s currently transpiring despite some still worried about what this upturn in performance levels will do to their chances of landing a franchise quarterback next spring.

That is not of any concern to Wilks right now and in all honesty, it shouldn’t be for fans either. It’s been an age since Carolina had anything on the line at this stage of the campaign, so enjoying the ride over the next month rather than worrying about the future is the best way to approach this.

Carolina’s coaches, players, fans, and everyone else associated with the community believe in themselves again. When one examines the impact made by Wilks whether he wins the head coaching job full-time or not, this will be right up there with his greatest accomplishments.
