RR needed time to learn and gain exp. He admitted his growing pains and mistakes. Even Man d up and said he should have hired a former HC for help. I enjoy his defenses for the most part.... this current version needs 3rd down and rushing D help tho. Dave and him seem to click on a professional level. Not a fan of his passed slow starts to seasons(not this your), 1st quarters , and 3rd quarters...... but the team always seem to finish strong. He seems honest during media too. Overall he's earned the right to be the panthers HC.
I'm still waiting til the off season to judge what I call a awful draft class. Shaq looks like he has some skills, but they will not be seen fully til TD retires. Once Luke is back, does shaqs snaps fall even more. He's only playing in about 50% of them now...... but he's on STs just what you want in a 1st1!111!!!!!! But I compared PFF to a good posters opinion, cause that's what they are opinion. If they knew the role of players during the called play and had former coaches on staff, I'd put more stock in them.
Gross said he talked to Dave after the game and said ' I cannot believe Washington didn't put him on the 53 roster, unreal'. Short made a comment about practice, ' he's got a special set of skills'. Cue the taken movie..... Coaches must have seen it, cause they waived Horton. I still want wes back, hope either frenchie or version get cut.
He looks awful light, like 230 LBs....... I do know Allen has, what I call SUPER tendon strength. Hope he can keep his speed and add a few lean LBs. He was rumored to be one of the strongest pound per pound DLmen around a few years ago.
It is sad, but true Thomas Davis has shown signs of age. All fall victim to father time, he's undefeated. TD did state 2 years and that's all folks. That seems right, cause his level of play will still be on the high side. Shaq missed nearly all OTAs and parts of training camp, he's still learning. Ron said you need around 5,000 reps for things to slow down. Shaq may not have 1,000 and once the game slows down that will be fun to watch given his ability to lay wood.
Cam reminds me of hearing former players& refs talk about calling fouls on Shaq O'Neal. He was very different and it was very difficult to call fouls on Shaq or against him. Just because he's bigger doesn't mean he can take more hits will out getting a personal foul called. I mean its not like Cam wants special treatment, just a fair deal.
