The Panthers grabbed the number 1 draft pick this off-season as they struggled in every facet of the game last year. The Panthers felt they needed to upgrade the QB position right away and took a shot on Daniel West from Georgia. West has looked serviceable in the first 3 games losing a few close games. The Panthers knew they would need to stay healthy if they had any shot this year to compete and that just hasn’t happened. 4 key starters are out 3-4 weeks. Olson, McKinney and Bradberry all out for several weeks. The Panthers have to find a way to stay in contention until they can get back in the lineup. Time to see if the next man up is ready to do his job.
