During the training camp sessions, Bryce Young garnered commendation for his swift adaptability and quick information processing on the go. Nonetheless, in this preseason, he hasn’t been given many opportunities to display his skills.
Frank Reich acknowledged that, up to this juncture, the approach has been quite basic. This intentional approach stems from the Carolina Panthers‘ desire to keep their strategic concepts under wraps until the regular season commences.
Despite the circumstances around him, Young continues to exhibit both physical and mental resilience. His passing accuracy and precision are particularly noteworthy, consistently placing the ball in positions where only his receivers can make the catches.
A standout connection during the game against the New York Giants was a pass to Hayden Hurst on the sideline within the red zone. Although the play was nullified due to a holding penalty, the throw itself was impressively executed.
Young also displayed his mobility in Friday’s match. In the early stages of the game, he surveyed the field, found no open options, and skillfully scrambled out of bounds for a few yards. Later on, he showcased his agility by evading defenders in the backfield, even recovering quickly from a stumble, getting back on his feet, and launching an incomplete long-range pass.
The young quarterback did encounter a couple of setbacks, including a miscommunication with fellow rookie Jonathan Mingo on a crucial third down, as well as incurring a delay-of-game penalty during the second drive within the red zone.
The question of whether he will be in uniform for the upcoming game against the Detroit Lions adds an element of intrigue. Nevertheless, fans should find encouragement in what they’ve witnessed thus far.
