Panthers’ Robbie Anderson Kicked Out After Arguments With Coaches !
The Carolina Panthers’ on-field misfortune boiled on Sunday over to the sideline in the team’s 24-10 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.
In his third season, wide receiver Robbie Anderson got into multiple clashes with wide receivers coach Joe Dailey. It’s unclear what provoked Robbie’s initial arguments with Joe, who was also scolded by head coach Steve Wilks on the sidelines.
Before the start of the fourth, the cameras showed Steve calming down Joe before dismissing Robbie from the sidelines.
Further, the public got frustrated when Carolina was sitting at 1-5, six days removed from parting ways with head coach Matt Rhule. According to Robbie, he spoke up due to not being used on critical downs to help convert plays for Carolina. He said his job is to do everything to help the team win.
“I have no idea,” Robbie told reporters when asked why he was taken out of the game. While he was candid, following the game in an effort he admitted was to ensure his emotions and actions were not misconstrued.
Further, when asked, Steve said that no one is bigger than the team and when given a chance to expand on the argument. He added that his focus and attention were not on one individual.
Robbie’s grudge about his usage happens as trade rumors swirl around the Carolina with the wideout’s name list, who are suspected to be on the block before the 1st November trade deadline.
On Saturday, it was reported that Carolina is listening to offers for players like running back Christian McCaffrey and wide receiver D.J. Moore. However, Robbie was described by Rapoport as available given the right opportunity.
The recent interaction between Robbie, Wilks, and Dailey further muddies Robbie’s future. Even if he is not eventually traded, being sent to the locker room during an interim head coach’s first game in charge does not predict well for Robbie’s path in Carolina.
