The Carolina Panthers didn’t make a strong statement Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams, but interim coach Steve Wilks did, throwing Robbie Anderson out of the game late in the third quarter after the wide receiver was in a heated argument with position coach Joe Dailey.
“No one is bigger than the team,” Wilks said of Anderson after a 24-10 loss in his first game since replacing Matt Rhule, who was fired Monday. “I’m not going to focus and put a lot of attention on one individual.”
Tensions between Anderson and receivers coach Joe Dailey were evident throughout the game. Then the conflict boiled over toward the end of the third quarter. Anderson said something to Dailey as he walked past him on the sideline. Wilks then shouted at Dailey before sending Anderson off the field with the Panthers trailing, 17-10.
“I was honestly confused, and upset by it as I should be,” Anderson said at a press conference after the game. “I don’t see nobody that’s a true competitor and knows the value they bring, that’s a true competitor and has a true passion for the game that’s OK with being told not to do something or being taken out of something when they didn’t do anything wrong.”
McCaffrey, who along with Anderson has been the subject of trade rumors, did not address what happened on the sidelines because he said he did not see it.
Wilks tried to keep shift focus back on the rest of his team. He did not address Anderson’s future when asked if the receiver would play next week against Tampa Bay.
“You know everybody is being evaluated, as well as myself. So we’ve got to figure out what’s going to be the right chemistry to put out on the field,” Wilks said. “And, most importantly as coaches, we got to come up with the right game plan.”
