Matt Rhule’s debut season in the pros showed plenty of encouraging signs, as the Panthers improved significantly on offense and defense from 2019 despite an identical 5-11 record. In the absence of a top draft pick at quarterback, and with Deshaun Watson trade rumors being scuppered, Rhule has gambled on a very interesting horse to ride into his second year. Like it or not, Rhule’s immediate future, if not his entire NFL legacy, will likely be defined by the outcome of the Sam Darnold trade ... and Darnold’s legacy will be defined by how he fares under a new Rhule.  – Andrew Potter
