    Something really interesting to think about this bye week. Julio Jones (ATL): 49 Catches | 715 Yards | 14.6 YPC l 1 TD Michael Thomas (NO): 59 Catches | 662 Yards | 11.2 YPC l 2 TDs Devin Funchess (CAR): 43 Catches | 535 Yards | 12.4 YPC l 5 TDs Mike Evans (TB): 40 Catches | 532 Yards | 13.3 YPC l 4 TD From these stats, here's Funchess' hallmarks: 1st the NFC South in touchdowns so far this season with five total. 3rd in total yards and average yards per catch. In the past two games where Funchess was a true WR1: Julio Jones (ATL): 12 Catches | 175 Yards | 14.6 YPC l 0 TD Michael Thomas (NO): 17 Catches | 182 Yards | 10.7 YPC l 0 TDs Devin Funchess (CAR): 10 Catches | 178 Yards | 17.8 YPC l 2 TDs Mike Evans* (TB): 6 Catches | 73 Yards | 12.2 YPC l 0 TD So, based on these stats with Funchess as WR1... 1st in the NFC South with touchdowns over the past two games (2). 1st in the NFC South with average yards per catch over the past two games with an astounding average 17.8 YPC. 2nd in the NFC South with total yards over the past two games, ahead of both Mike Evans and Julio Jones. *In two games prior to suspension So, just something to chew on...

    I wouldn't consider 4 players as "a lot." And they did not say anything disrespectful at all, they were mocking the reporter for thinking that "A-skips" were tough or freakish. Not a single one of those players said anything bad about CMC.

    stop. there was no pressure on that play and it was a clear miscommunication between the qb and receiver. it was absolutely not intentional grounding. don't kid yourself into that delusion. admit you got lucky and had help from the refs. because that's exactly what happened.

    I will be looking at the coach's film off and on today and posting items of interest, in particular the running game. Right now I am taking a look at the reps Armah got as a blocker that saw mixed results. This play stood out to me. Fantastic blocking by everyone. Dolphins are just getting pushed around. If Stewart doesn't hesitate with that initial first step to his right it could have been a big gainer. Not sure what Stew is doing here. Here is a play that really highlights Armah's athletic ability.. Alex gets up field and demolishes the safety. When was the last time we saw a Panthers FB able to do that? Good stuff. If Shepard would have gotten a better block this could have gone all the way. S

    Okay then! so the playoffs are inching closer and we have a clearer picture who the contenders are gonna be. So lets discuss who, as prodigious Panthers fans, we should be throwing our weekly support behind. Games this week: Tennessee @ Pittsburgh Push. Doesn't have any bearing on tiebreakers. Detroit @ Chicago Push. Doesn't seem to have any real bearing on tiebreakers. Correct me if I'm wrong. Washington @ New Orleans Obvious pick is obvious. A Saints loss really helps us in our quest to reclaim the division title. Couple that with the fact that the Redskins have played good teams tough and won (@ Seattle sticks out in my mind) and this is an upset alert for me. If this game is on in the Greenville SC or Asheville markets, ima be watching it. Kansas City @ New York (Giants) Push. There may be some SOS implications here but it seems pretty convoluted and seems inconsequential at best. Jacksonville @ Cleveland Push. Little brother plays the worst team in the league. I kinda want the Jags to win. I tend to root for them since we came into the league together. Then again, i hate seeing any team go winless this long. Tampa Bay @ Miami We play both teams, but we play Tampa twice and that means their wins mean more to our SOS and SOV. They are also no threat to overtake us in the division so go Bucs. Los Angeles (Rams) @ Minnesota Both teams are 7-2 and a threat to the Panthers possibly achieving 1st Seed. However, the Vikings are on the Panthers' schedule, and we need the Rams to take some losses too. The Vikings seem to be the team to root for in this one. Baltimore @ Green Bay not sure who to pick here. A Baltimore win would push GB further back in the NFC playoff race and perhaps begin the demoralization necessary to convince their coaches to sit Aaron Rodgers for our game in a few weeks. Then again, a Green Bay win could have positive impact on both the Panthers' SOS and SOV. Arizona @ Houston Feels like a push, but probably should root for Houston here. Im sure this lowers the SOS and SOV of our NFC competitors who play the Cardinals. Buffalo @ Los Angeles (Chargers) need Buffalo to win this one. helps our SOS and SOV Cincinnati @ Denver Push, i think. But fug Denver. Go Bengals. New England @ Oakland We want NE to win this game (More SOS/SOV) Philadelphia @ Dallas Philadelphia has the better record in this matchup, and the tiebreaker against us. We need Dallas to win this game. Especially since they dropped that game against the Falcons. Atlanta @ Seattle Going out on a limb with this one, but we need ATL to win this game. hand the Seahawks a loss while they're vulnerable. I think the coming NFC South games + Minnesota will beat up on ATL enough that we can afford to let ATL win this one. the Seahawks are another competitor for for that coveted 1st seed, so we need them to take a few more losses. Then again, they have to play Philly, Jacksonville, the Rams, and Dallas. So its likely they'll take one or two more losses outside this weekend's matchup. Pick your poison i suppose. Dont agree? drag your happy ass to the comments and lemme know! <3 u guyz

    Funch was a beast today on both TDs and some other tough grabs. He's been great this year and is really stepping into his role. Give him some love.
  17. 21 points
    Not sure if some of you remember him, but he used to be a RT for us for a few years. He was pretty good, got hurt a lot, then left for greener pastures where he excelled, got hurt more, and then retired. Now he's a writer/analyst and clairvoyant. Check out this article from back in September. More specifically, check out this particular part: By gawd, that dude done called it. Maybe Shula isn't a complete putz and the offense just needed time to figure their poo out. Hopefully what we have been seeing the past few weeks continues into the future. I sure hope so.

    Another week, another win. This time, the offense arrived. In a game where we simply demoralized an inferior team (for the first time since 2015), there is a lot to rejoice. However, there are some things to be concerned about moving forward. I know, I understand nobody likes negativity after a win, but objectivity is important and we need to remain level-headed because the next month is going to be deciding whether we're a playoff contender or if we're a wild card and 1 and done. - Cam is looking like MVP Cam. There were a couple of times where Cam made a check at the line that resulted in a first down, and one of those was a TD to Funchess. He's throwing the ball better than his stats are showing because of drops or receivers otherwise not doing what they should have been doing, but that doesn't matter because he's playing at the level we all know he is capable. He's definitely a streaky player, so this staff needs to keep setting this offense up to succeed early so he can get a feel for the game each week. That is what gives us this Cam Newton. - The read option is our identity. I know several users over the past several years that have disputed this as a viable approach in the NFL. Well, this is what happens when you execute it. You simply do not have the numbers to stop it consistently. We didn't "call it in certain situations". It was the bulk of our ground game. It is what this offense does. It is what needs to be done. The reason it is working now and wasn't in other games isn't because the Miami defense is bad. Their run d is top 10. It is blocking. This was our best game run blocking and this is what we SHOULD look like when given those blocks. So, no more trash talking the option. It is absolutely unstoppable in the hands of this offense. - CMC is still a driving force of this offense and it is starting to become more productive for the offense as a whole. McCaffrey is starting to find his groove and timing on his cuts with the ball in his hands, which is resulting in incrementally larger gains each time he touches the ball. It's almost like he's constantly saving and referencing data from past experiences and fine tuning his game. Really something to watch. - Samuel is coming into his own. Sure, the drop and injury sucks. He should've had the TD. However, he's a rookie playing on Monday for the first time in his career. It's OK to have that happen now so long as he learns from it. Samuel will be big for us going forward as long as he stays healthy. Cam is developing a good connection with him. - This defense is absolutely scary when it wants to be. Sure, a bad offense they faced....but oh my, was it fascinating to watch. The sheer numbers game we played against them on tackling. Now, the big TD run was painful, but that's just one of those runs that happen from time to time. We got caught being too aggressive and it bit us. Fine. You've gotta live with that, especially when your offense is firing like ours was tonight. - Russell Shepard....where to start. The guy just didn't show up tonight. End of story. May not be indicative of his ability, but it hurt early. Had a couple of nice catches (towards the end had a big 3rd down catch). But when you're dropping balls early, you're getting the offense out of sync. - Devin Funchess showed up tonight. Guy is absolutely comfortable in his new role and the offense is seeing the benefits. - Shula is still inept at times, but coming around slowly. It's games like these that make you wonder if he's simply in the habit of being TOO basic early in the year and opening the offense in the back half of the season. This is both wise and completely ignorant. You're putting a LOT on your defense early in the season to keep games close if your offense doesn't get it done with your "smash head into wall" offense. However, you catch teams off guard late in the year pushing for the playoffs. If (BIG IF) this is by design for Shula, fair play. Don't agree with it, but I understand it. If this is simply Shula having his memory swiped at the end of every season and having to start from scratch each season, then we need to get somebody that understands this offense to call plays so Shula doesn't jeopardize the team in the first half of the season. All this said, Shula called an overall good-to-great game tonight and should be commended. - I still hate Stoic Ron. Just a little excitement now that your team is dominating as they should wouldn't kill ya. - Our secondary is still not quite where it should be. Some of it is simply the coverage. QBs eat us up in zone and we're not equipped to go man coverage too often. Zone coverage will leave gaps and the frustrating part of that is realized when you watch the eyes of our LBs and secondary players. They get in the habit of eyeing the backfield and not looking around for open guys and getting to them. The last TD they scored, find Luke Kuechly. If you watch his positioning, he can get to that man and make a play. He's eyeing Cutler (when at least 2 defenders are between he and Cutler) and never realizes how close he is to that man. Head on a swivel, find the open receivers. It's basic, and I know a lot of people think reading a QBs eyes is how you play the pass, but reading his eyes doesn't matter if guys are running free and you can't get there in time to do anything about it. We've got to find a way to keep pressure on teams or at least play with a lead more often than not so the secondary can focus their energy there. The garbage time TD doesn't count because well, it's garbage time. That being said, can't do that if it's a tighter game and that is concerning to an extent. - Last but not least, Cameron Artis-Payne. Talk about a coming out party. Kid is solid. Showed the doubters that the fanboys were right. Showed the fanboys that their praise was worthy. Solid burst, solid vision, solid ball security. Absolutely a viable Stew replacement with runs like he had on that last drive. We're at least 3 deep at RB where we may have to change the approach depending who is in, but my goodness can we run it. Tons to love here, folks. Feel happy. Feel proud. Enjoy that hangover at work tomorrow. Last aside, how do you get a flag in the victory formation? He'll never hear the end of that.

    For today’s supposed “Michael Vick” - a runningback who throws sometimes - Cam Newton has been doing great so far in his career. So far, Cam Newton has played in 103 career NFL games. His passing yards have landed him in the top 15 all time for other quarterbacks in the same timespan. As far as passing yards before quarterbacks pass the age of 29, he beats our Aaron Rodgers, Eli Manning, Ben Rothlisberger, Phillip Rivers, and Tom Brady to name a few. He only needs 176 passing yards to surpass Brett Favre in this category. Just this past Monday night, he surpassed Archie Manning for career passing yards. He’s on pace to creep into the top 20 or higher by the end of his career. Reminder: if Cam Newton had 2011’s level of talent around him every year, his passingn stats would be beyond the roof and near unfair. So many drops, incompletions, and bad mistakes by his poor cast, and he’s still putting up monster numbers. Let’s appreciate the fact that Cam Newton’s our QB.

    Before Mr.Saca cuts up another one of Vinny’s articles, give it a click and a full read. Vinny, is a writer for the Riot Report and does a lot of good work. If Kalil can just be serviceable, it makes Cam’s life so much easier. We saw what Cam was capable of with a serviceable LT in 2015 with Oher.

    Yup. I keep a post it note at home just to make sure I stay consistent with panther fan logic. Good play = Cam audible Bad play = shula play call Bad execution = bad play call (say something about run, run, pass even though they only run on first down 50%) good execution = players bailing out Shula (make sure to slide in some shot at KB here)
