Panthers quarterback Bryce Young had another learning experience during Monday night’s game against the Saints. Although he didn’t throw an interception, he lost a fumble and struggled to lead the team to a touchdown late in the fourth quarter. The final score was 20-17, and the Panthers’ lack of good plays on offense, with Young’s 26-yard scramble being the biggest gain, hampered their performance throughout the game.
After the game, Panthers coach Frank Reich acknowledged that Young handles the pressure well and that the offensive struggles are not solely his fault. Reich recognized Young’s positive contributions, such as his ability to play with his feet, make good decisions and show potential in his throws. He emphasized the collective effort needed to improve, stating that everyone, including coaches and players, must work together to get better.
Yang expressed his intention to learn from his experiences and grow from them. However, it may take some time to see the progress that results from this growth. Overall, a better performance from the entire team would go a long way in helping the rookie quarterback process and adjust to the challenges on the field each week.
