Carolina Panthers coach Matt Rhule has work cut out in first year


Peter King discusses Matt Rhule's first meeting with his new team, as well as what he expects from the first-year Panthers head coach.

Carolina Panthers head coach Matt Rhule shares what his takeaways so far from his new team's virtual offseason.

Following a two-day curfew the Turkish government introduced in 31 cities, the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality took the opportunity to do an extensive disinfection operation at the busiest parts of the city, Sunday, April 12. Workers cleaned and disinfected surfaces and iconic landmarks like the bull statue in Kadikoy Square and Republic Monument in Taksim.

Turkey introduced a weekend lockdown that took many by surprise, the country having previously adopted a more relaxed coronavirus regimen than its neighbors in Europe and the Middle East. The sudden announcement of a 48-hour curfew in 31 cities on Friday evening led to crowds rushing to grocery stores to buy provisions. Many ignored social distancing rules and were not wearing mandatory masks. Prior to the declaration, a curfew had been imposed on those aged under 20 and over 65.

Authorities have closed schools, cafes, nightclubs and barber shops, and canceled sports events and prayers at mosques. The government has banned anyone 65 or older — the most vulnerable to the disease — from leaving home and later extended the ban to people under 20, after many youths, falsely believing they were safe from the virus, continued to socialize.

Trey Wingo talks with Matt Rhule about his first draft as head coach of the Carolina Panthers, with every pick being used on defense. Rhule also discusses how he is earning the respect of players and what he has planned for Christian McCaffrey and Teddy Bridgewater.

Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy joins Golic and Wingo to describe how he is supporting the players on his team. Nagy also explains how the team has been able to communicate during the coronavirus pandemic and preparing for the 2020 NFL season.
