The Panthers fired head coach Frank Reich on Monday after the team dropped to 1-10 the day after in a loss on the road to the Tennessee Titans and had owner David Tepper yelling an obscenity on the way out of the locker room. That seems to have been the sign that the move was […]
Dave Tepper's press conference hasn't only been the talk here locally in Charlotte, but also the talk of the NFL, as virtually every analyst has something to say after the Panthers owner fired Frank Reich on Monday, and delivered a half-hearted press conference yesterday. Scott Fowler made headlines yesterday, after he publicly voiced his displeasure with Tepper ignoring him during the press conference, after Fowler wrote an article, stating that Tepper needs to fire himself as the owner. Another reporter, who hasn't been shy from asking Tepper the tough questions, or writing opinionated articles about Tepper, Joe Person, was on hand and started the press conference by asking if Tepper needs to re-evaluate himself, after making another hiring mistake. As Tepper was walking off the stage, Person tried to ask him about the job security of Panthers GM Scott Fitterer, to which he received no answer.
Scott Fowler has covered the Charlotte sports scene, for nearly thirty years, at the Charlotte Observer, so he knows what it's like to report on a coach getting fired, and an organization having to go through the rebuild. Especially since David Tepper became the owner of the Panthers, and brought Charlotte FC to town, as Tepper, has now fired 5 coaches between the two franchises, after firing Frank Reich on Monday. With such dysfunction, Fowler wrote a column on Monday, stating the obvious, saying nothing would change until Reich fired himself.
Almost 10 months ago, Frank Reich was introduced as Head Coach of the Carolina Panthers. Fast-forward to late November and Frank Reich is fired after a 1-10 start in Carolina. To break down the firing of Frank Reich and what happens next with Kyle Bailey is Joe Person of The Athletic. When it comes to […]

Almost two hours after Frank Reich got fired, the Wes & Walker Show went on the air on WFNZ earlier today, but their question was the same as many that are either involved with the team or are fans of the team. What's next? This was supposed to be the first sense of direction for the Panthers under David Tepper, after hiring the highly thought of Reich, supplemented by the best, all-name staff maybe in the history of the NFL, combined with the decision to trade up and draft Bryce Young. It appears as if every decision has backfired on Tepper, who fired Reich, after a 1-10 start, making Frank, the first head coach in NFL history to be fired in back-to-back seasons. Not only has Reich been fired, but so have Josh McCown, and Duce Staley, two guys apart of that all-star coaching staff that was supposed to help turn Carolina back into a winning franchise. And then there is Bryce Young, who is going to endure a play-caller change for the third time in a month, who has lost every bit of confidence that helped lead him to be the #1 pick in the draft last spring, all while CJ Stroud is setting records virtually every week for the Texans.

The Panthers lost their sixth straight game on Sunday at the hand of the Dallas Cowboys. Quarterback Bryce Young had another rough performance, throwing for the fewest amount of yards (123) that he has so far this season. A big part of that was the pressure that he was under the entire day. The Cowboys […]
