“Sam Darnold’s starting record is 4-5.” Matt Rhule said, “Sam Darnold had some great performances, but it was relatively flat afterwards. When Sam Darnold has a chance to play, I will be happy to see Sam Darnold after a rest period. What is the level.”

Carolina Panthers currently has a record of 5-9 and has suffered a four-game losing streak. The probability of making the playoffs as a wild card team is less than 1%. Cam Newton’s contract will expire after the end of the season, and Sam Darnold’s will not. But Matt Rhule said that contract issues will not affect the quarterback selection.

“Our job is to make good choices for the team and make decisions that will win on Sunday,” Matt Rhule said. “There is no decision that is easy or needless to consider. We have to do the right thing.”

Carolina Panthers fires offensive coordinator Joe Brady

On Sunday, Carolina Panthers officially announced the firing of offensive coordinator Joe Brady. Coach Matt Rhule said in a statement that he had interviewed Joe Brady on Sunday morning.

“I am very grateful to him for the time and energy he has invested in building the team over the past year and a half.” Matt Rhule said.

Senior offensive assistant Jeff Nixon will serve as offensive coordinator for the rest of the season. Carolina Panthers has a bye this week and is currently averaging 308.7 yards per game, ranking 28th in the league and 23rd in the league in scoring 19.7.

Matt Rhule said in October that he would continue to let Joe Brady be the offensive coordinator, but hoped that he would work harder in rushing the ball. But Joe Brady ultimately failed to satisfy Matt Rhule’s desire to average at least 30 rushes per game.

Carolina Panthers started the season 3-0, but only won 2 wins since then and currently has a 5-7 record. Head running back Christian McCaffrey has been reimbursed for the season, and the starting quarterback has also changed three.
