Unsurprisingly, Carolina Panthers owner David Tepper isn’t happy with what he’s seen from his team 10 weeks into the season.
Tepper is particularly frustrated with the Panthers’ offense and its lack of improvement, reports The Athletic’s Dianna Russini.
Carolina dropped to 1-8 following Thursday’s 16-13 loss to the Chicago Bears. The Panthers, who haven’t scored more than 15 points in any of their last three games, rank 27th in scoring despite using the first overall pick on quarterback Bryce Young in April. The team traded up to get the No. 1 pick from the Bears, giving up a package that included multiple first-round selections and star receiver D.J. Moore.
Carolina also named Frank Reich its new head coach during the offseason. A former quarterback, Reich has been unable to smoothen Young’s transition to the NFL. The Alabama product has completed 62.8% of his passes for 1,560 yards and eight touchdowns against seven interceptions through eight starts.
Some inside the Panthers organization believe the roster hasn’t been built correctly, according to Russini. However, there’s reportedly still a “unified belief” that Young is the quarterback of the future.
Carolina hasn’t made the playoffs since Tepper officially acquired the team in 2018.
