Panthers head coach Frank Reich’s decision to resume offensive play-calling duties did not result in an improved outcome on Sunday, leaving the team struggling to keep pace with their opponents. Despite this setback, Reich stated at a press conference on Monday that no major changes are planned for Week 12. The coaching staff will remain unchanged, and the possibility of replacing first overall pick Bryce Young with veteran quarterback Andy Dalton was dismissed outright.
According to Darin Gantt of the team’s website, Reich emphasized that there will be discussions about potential changes to the lineup, but it is difficult to feel optimistic about the prospects of finding better solutions for the Panthers as they prepare to face the Titans for their second win of the season.
While many fans were hoping for a drastic change in personnel or strategies, Reich’s announcement suggests that the Panthers are not contemplating any drastic alterations. This decision may disappoint those who were hoping for a turnaround in the team’s performance. As pressure mounts to deliver wins, it remains uncertain whether the Panthers can turn their season around without making substantial changes.
