Keep Or Cut: How Would You Run The Carolina Panthers?
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Four straight losses for the Carolina Panthers. They’ve now dropped 5 of their last 6 games. And while close in a few of them, the latest, against a Washington team with only 2 wins this season, was an abysmal watch.
The Panthers took an early 14 point lead, and it was pretty much down hill from there. Christian McCaffrey was held to only 44 yards rushing on 14 carries. Kyle Allen was sacked 7 times. Washington racked up nearly 400 yards of offense. And on the final play of the game, Allen didn’t see an open receiver, ran for his life, and was sacked as time expired.
Head Coach Ron Rivera says he’s taking this personally and knows owner David Tepper isn’t happy. Rivera says, “Every loss you take personal. I take personal because I feel like I let a lot of people down. So do I sleep well? No, I don’t. Do I think about a lot of things? Absolutely.” Rivera continues, “Mr. Tepper has been very fair, very honest, very open and I really appreciate his support on things. But again this is football, like I’ve told you folks before, I get it. I understand it.”
Tonight, we are asking you to rebuild the team. We are calling this “Keep or Cut.” Out of these three names, you have to sign one of them to a ten-year deal. The other two get cut loose.
