The Carolina Panthers have only completed 42 percent of their passes so far this preseason and their quarterbacks have been sacked a combined 11 times, but offensive coordinator Jeff Davidson isn’t fretting over the team’s passing game.
“No,” said Davidson. “I’m not concerned with it. I think we have a good focus on it. We have time before I start getting concerned about it here.
“But I want to make sure that we all understand that there is a sense of urgency in getting better at it. And I do think we need to do that.”
Davidson said the team has installed about 70 percent of its offensive playbook, which he said is more than enough to give the players a chance to make plays in the preseason.
Now, he said it’s a matter of going out and doing it.
“We have plays in. There’s no excuse for it, quite honestly,” Davidson said. “There are plays that we have in -- and we have to be able to make plays. That’s something where part of it is coaching and part of it is playing. We have to make sure we get out there and get better.
