    in-depth self-scouting will help the defending NFC champions salvage what is
    quickly becoming a lost season.Carolina (1-5) is marred in a four-game losing
    streak following a 41-38 loss to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, a game in
    which his young secondary was shredded for the second time in the last three
    weeks.Oh, yeah. It really is a big challenge, Rivera said Monday. ... The
    easiest thing to do is quit, but shoot, weve got 10 games to play. Atlanta lost
    (Sunday). So heck, were not in a bad spot. What weve got to do is take care of
    our business and doing the things were capable of. That starts now.Big challenge
    might be an understatement.The Panthers are three games behind the Falcons (4-2)
    in the NFC South -- and 0-3 in division play. Theyve matched the worst record
    through six games for teams coming off a Super Bowl appearance, joining the 1987
    New York Giants, 1999 Atlanta Falcons, 2002 St. Louis Rams and 2004 Panthers,
    who also started 1-5.Rivera encouraged players to get away from football
    following their practice on Tuesday.The Panthers are obviously frustrated as
    evidenced by Cam Newtons brief postgame interview Sunday -- which he ended after
    about one minute.During their time off, the coaching staff plans to do extra
    self-scouting to figure out how a team that went 17-2 last season and reached
    the Super Bowl has fallen off course.Hopefully we get some answers, Rivera
    said.The biggest focus will be the teams pass defense, which is allowing 282
    yards per game and has surrendered 13 touchdowns through the air since
    jettisoning All-Pro cornerback Josh Norman.The Panthers have failed to generate
    much of a pass rush with their starting defensive ends Charles Johnson and Kony
    Ealy combining for one-half sack this season. That, combined with a young
    secondary that has been riddled by injuries and lacks game experience, has led
    to some poor results.Atlantas Matt Ryan threw for 503 yards and Drew Brees put
    up 465 against the Panthers, the two biggest totals by an opposing quarterback
    in the franchises 22-year history. Both threw for four touchdowns.Well, thats
    probably the biggest disappointment is we havent had the production we would
    have liked out of the front, Rivera said. The front has done a nice job. Weve
    done a good job stopping the run. But (the run defense) is not whats killing
    us.Rivera said the Panthers will look at ways of being more creative on defense
    to get additional pressure on opposing QBs.The problem with blitzing more is it
    leaves Carolinas young cornerbacks -- the Panthers have three rookies on the
    roster -- exposed more in coverage. Carolina has already given up eight passes
    of more than 40 yards, second most in the NFL.Rivera said the Panthers are
    seeing more double teams on defensive tackle Kawann Short, more play-action on
    first and second down and more chipping on their defensive ends on third
    down.There are some things weve got to be able to do to counter that stuff,
    Rivera said.The Panthers were counting on third-year defensive end Ealy to have
    a big season after he came on strong at the end of last season and had three
    sacks, a forced fumble and an interception in the Super Bowl. But Ealy has been
    completely shut down this season, and Rivera acknowledged the team hoped he
    would be further along in his progression as a player.Right now, for a six-game
    stretch youd like to see a little more production, Rivera said. Its not like hes
    not trying. Its tough because of the way people approach us now and look at
    us.Defensive end Wes Horton said Monday the biggest difference from last years
    defense that finished in the top 10 in the league overall and first in takeaways
    is the lack of communication and consistency.There are flashes where were doing
    well and other times when guys just arent in the right place, Horton said.If
    nothing else, the bye should also help the Panthers get healthier.They played
    Sunday without three starters: cornerbacks James Bradberry (toe) and Robert
    McClain (hamstring) and left tackle Michael Oher (concussion). Defensive tackles
    Vernon Butler (ankle) and Paul Soliai (foot) also sat out with injuries.---AP
