SPARTANBURG, S.C.-- Coach Ron Rivera is serious about the Carolina Panthers' new "aggressive, attacking style on offense.
Offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski's new scheme has just about everyone excited about the potential of this year's offense, just one year after the Panthers finished last in the NFL in points scored, total yards and passing offense.
The Panthers scored 20 points in Saturday's preseason opener against the New York Giants, something they accomplished only twice in 16 regular season games in 2010.
Rookie Cam Newton says the new-look offense is about "big plays and keeping that foot on the gas."
Greg Olsen, acquired in a trade with the Chicago Bears two weeks ago, says the "offense is a fun offense to be a part of, especially for a tight end."
