His start didn’t result in a win, but Carolina Panthers quarterback Andy Dalton let it rip throughout his 2023 debut on Sunday. The 35-year-old veteran completed 34 of a career-high 58 throws for 361 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions.
But what did Panthers fans have to say about the outing?
If you dare, let’s take a look . . .

As disappointed I am about Bryce not starting today, a lot of question marks will get answered about things like, play calling, WR separation, and other things a vet like dalton can help us see #KeepPounding

Her: “So you’re telling me you’re going to sit here for four hours to watch Andy Dalton and that offense play?”

The problem really isnt at the QB position. Dalton is seeing the exact same thing Bryce saw through weeks 1 & 2.

Nothing spectacular about what Andy Dalton is doing here. Just playing solid football. No mistakes. Accurate. No wow factor but that's ok. This is what I was expecting from the first 2 weeks of Bryce. Hope he's soaking this in. This is excellent QB play FWIW.

Andy Dalton is doing better today than Bryce Young would've.

Dalton making quicker decisions with the ball. Something Bryce needs to work on

Ain’t no quit in Andy Dalton!

The Jets should be calling Andy Dalton soon.

Hats off to Andy Dalton for making sense of this dysfunctional offense today. No discipline whatsoever.

Andy Dalton balled out today though.
All things considered.

Let me say it now… Andy Dalton didn’t do anything different from Bryce today. We just played a team who doesn’t run man 80% of the time
