Mike Shula’s offense is considered to be more traditional than what the Panthers experienced under Rob Chudzinski’s direction the past two seasons as offensive coordinator.
What it will look like on Week One is still up in the air, but one thing is for sure with coach Ron Rivera: They’ll be getting out of the huddle faster in 2013.
By simplifying the verbiage for play calls, Rivera expects the team to break the huddle faster and with less confusion.
“We want to be up-tempo, we want to practice up-tempo and get things going up-tempo,” Rivera said Thursday at organized team activities. “That’s what you see, you see more of that in the last couple weeks in these OTAs.”
Quicker playcalling should mean more plays and more production from Cam Newton and the rest of the Carolina offense, provided the team is as effective on a per-play basis.
