Many NFL fans think Bryce Young’s career in the league might already be shot during his rookie season with the Carolina Panthers. The Panthers organization made many bad moves that harmed the first overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.
The Panthers hired former Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich after he failed to do anything with Matt Ryan and Carson Wentz. The Panthers had to fire him midseason.
The Panthers also made a few bizarre choices before drafting a quarterback in April. They traded their most talented offensive player, wide receiver D.J. Moore, to the Chicago Bears for the first-round pick. The Bears asked for Moore, defensive end Brian Burns, or defensive tackle Derrick Brown as a part of their deal with the Panthers for first overall pick.
The Panthers chose to give the Bears Moore instead of a defender. Young came into a team with a poor wide receivers room and offensive line. According to Pro Football Focus, the Panthers’ offensive line is ranked 31st in pass blocking this season.
Young hasn’t improved with the 1-12 Panthers this season. The Panthers are on track to hand over the number one pick in 2024 to the Bears. And this replay of a terrible overthrow by Young to Jonathan Mingo against the New Orleans Saints Sunday has fans panicking that the Panthers have already ruined Young.

NFL fans think the Carolina Panthers ruined their rookie QB
After the Panthers blowout loss to the Saints Sunday, Young has a 58.5 completion percentage this season for 2,192 yards, nine touchdowns, and nine interceptions. Fans took to X after the game to vent their concerns about his career.
Here are the best takes on X of NFL fans claiming the Panthers ruined Young in year one.
Another random observation: There’s not a single team in the NFC South that is even mediocre.
On a side note, as a football fan, I’m legitimately worried that Carolina has already completely ruined Bryce Young. Kinda sad to watch.

Bryce Young’s career is in the hands of the Panthers front office and they already ruined him.

Imagine dropping back and immediately seeing 2 edge rushers flying at you. This is what Bryce Young deals with every play. When he does get protection he gets to see his passes dropped by the most average receiver in nfl history

I think the Carolina Panthers have officially broken and ruined Bryce Young. He’s shown almost zero progression the second half of the year. I don’t blame him for any of it,

The Panthers organization (David Tepper) may have ruined Bryce Young.

Even as a Saints fan, I worry that Bryce Young is headed down the David Carr path of being ruined by having to spend his rookie year running for his life with no O-line and subpar receivers.
