Rivera says he may be asking young Panthers to do too much

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Coach Ron Rivera suggested it may be time to simplify what the Carolina Panthers are doing on offense after managing just three points against the Chicago Bears.

During his news conference Monday, Rivera said he may be asking too much of his new/young players in terms of the number of formations and personnel groupings they've been asked to learn.

"You put some young guys and new guys out on the field and it's not like you had in the past," Rivera said. "You are missing some key elements. You are missing a Greg Olsen and a Ryan Kalil and some of the other veteran guys. When communications are made there are little hand signals and their tempo picks up and they can play faster. We're in a situation where we have so many new guys that it takes a little while to register."
