And those criticisms would not be unfounded. There's a reason everyone expects the Panthers to gather several wins from the first part of the schedule, and that's because for the most part, we are playing bad teams to start. And given that Darnold is our QB, every break that goes our way is going to be used as a reason that we're not a legit team.
Our offense in the first half verse our offense in the second half is what has me most curious to watch. 2 games in a row we have looked incredible in the first half and sluggish in the second. I want to know if this is a consistent trend or if we will make adjustment to correct it. Both games so far weren't so close that we could let off the gas going into the second half, but we did anyway.
