The sophomore slump is real in Charlotte, NC for Da Dynasty Panthers. Second year QB Mason Looman has been experiencing the other side of stardom and all of its ugly shades.
What was thought to be a continuance of a phenomenal rookie season has fizzled into an average at best start for the standouts second season. After finishing with over 4000+ yards his rookie season, both Looman and Coach CRob expected more out of the player that fell to an early second round pickin the 2024 draft.
Many believe that the inability for Looman to dominate falls on the lack of running game that the Panthers have experienced since the release of Christian McCaffrey at the beginning of the 2024 season. Others contribute it to the constant patches, playbook restrictions and other changes that keep the signal caller from gaining the rhythm that he once had.
One thing for sure is that the Panthers organization will have to make certain that all necessary pieces are in place to ensure not only Looman’s success, but the success of the Panthers organization as a whole.
Moving forward the Panthers coaching and training staff look to recommit to developing the future leaders of the team. This will allow the staff to be prepared for any sudden changes or possible injury setbacks that may affect the 53 man roster once the High Stakes Season begins.
