“Fire Matt Rhule” Chants Carolina Panthers Fans

“Fire Matt Rhule” chants were heard around the stadium on Sunday evening as the Panthers dropped to 1-3 on the season following their loss to the Cardinals.

According to the latest stats, the Panthers are now 1-26 under Matt Rhule when the opponent scores at least 17 points, which includes 24 losses in a row.

Matt Rhule had been hired as a program builder. And while Carolina Panthers GM Scott Fitterer is also culpable, Rhule never really embraced the idea of what an NFL rebuild entails.

Rhule’s record shows that his time in the NFL does not compare to his head coaching accomplishments at the collegiate level.

David Tepper, the Panthers' owner, has been patient with head coach Matt Rhule. Although Tepper has made clear that Rhule must improve his skills sooner rather than later in order to save his post.

But fans seem to have had enough and experts believe it has become a necessity rather than a possibility. The recent play-tipping coaching controversy also hasn’t helped his cause.

Similar chants of “Fire Matt Rhule” had broken out in 2021. Panthers fans showered boos down onto Rhule and the Panthers. The vocal fans clearly believed that moving on from Rhule was the best.

Panther fans didn’t get their wish last time around. But after their latest loss, Rhule’s time could well be up. A change could be looming if things don’t turn around quickly.

Panthers are expected to seek a veteran Head Coach, and may take a look at the likes of Sean Payton or Dan Quinn, if indeed Matt Rhule is fired.

However, Matt Rhule won’t be jobless long, if he is fired. He will find a soft landing with a program ready to rebuild at the college level, where his track record is impressive.

Matt Rhule would be a 'home-run hire' for the Arizona State football team according to Chris Karpman, as he may not have opportunities immediately elsewhere given the timing.

Along with Matt Rhule, two more coaches are in the firing line this week including Denver Broncos’s Nathaniel Hackett and Washington Commander’s Ron Rivera.
