Kelvin Benjamin - Aside from the touchdown....

I almost feel sorry for Buffalo. I have a family member with season tickets there and no one lives in the Carolinas for longer than a week without meeting someone from there. They lost the Stanley Cup to the Hurricanes, lost Cam and Luke to us by a pick or two, and their top 10 CB was abused by KB. Now they may lose their team. As for what matters, KB-OMG.

You think anyone gives a f*ck about what you have to say on a panthers message board? I'm asking in all seriousness.

I'm a narcissist so I don't give a f*ck if anyone cares.

 

However, that you all pretend I am a wet blanket of reality and refuse to believe that the play was a anomaly, well, I can't understand that.

 

It was a great play but should not have happened.  A better defense or running an actual defensive scheme would have stopped it.

so to you and the elf boy, why?  Gilmore did not turn his head and could have easily deflected that pass had he done so.  The play was impressively salvaged.

 

@34 seconds KB looks back and reaches back, throws himself out of balance and cannot keep his feet underneath him.  This obviously isn't a timing route, so he had no reason to over extend himself.  He either ran too flat or a route to keep his head back or just got off balance.  At that point he begins to stumble and Gilmore doesn't even bother to turn his head, which is CB School 101 stuff.

 

At the catch he overcomes all inertia and movement to find himself to the ball, an amazing set of moves which lets him haul in the TD.

 

Not to burst you fanatics bubble but that play won't happen every Sunday, or even once a month on Sundays.  It was a great play to watch and something special to see but it was a fluke.

 

Of course it's not going to happen every week.

 

Gilmore did push him at 37 seconds. Which is CB School 101 when you get beat in man coverage. It makes everything afterward a moot point because he was beat off the snap, had to recover by shoving him (which showed he was giving effort on the play which for some reason you don't think he was), and DECIDED that he magically wasn't going to make a play on the ball?

 

My point is that it's too much damn credit to Gilmore who is a good CB that made a terrible play.

A few observations:

Gilmore looked hardly himself last night, disinterested and not full go.

I could say the same for Cason last night. Although, you know what happens when a good defense has a weak link and blows an assignment? You guessed it, the other 10 guys step up and make the necessary plays to keep the ball out of the end zone.

On Buffalo's first drive, he looked lack luster and was getting beat by a rookie, just as Gilmore was, but the rest of the defense stepped up and forced Buffalo to turn the ball over on downs at the 2 yard line.

This gets me more excited than when an episode of cops is on.

But seriously I am so impressed with KB

seriously i sit here and try to stay a bit reserved in the way i look at him. i don't knw why i shouldn't feel all giddy about him considering the success with first round picks historically, esp. in the last few years (once we stopped being stupid and trading them away).

 

cam, luke, and star were all big time slam dunks and, despite the fact that he was picked so late in the round (some in here basically called that pick a 2nd rounder because it was so late), so far it seems that we've done it again.

 

i know it's early, but man....the guy looks to be everything we've been hoping for. he's got the talent, the natural ability, and the killer work ethic that we've gotten used to seeing in our elite first rounders. his attitude seems to fit really well with the new culture that they seems to be building here that is interested in the concept of team and making the others around them better while continually growing and learning from those same people. at the risk of deviating  alittle from the topic, i don't think that smitty was a good fit for that culture. that's not a knock in him...that's just not who he was here. he made others better just by playing, but for the most part everything was centered on him and that was the way he liked it and needed it to be. it was him against the world on a team that has become "us" against the world.

actually he has a real chance at OROY.  Most of the offensive players taken ahead of him were

linemen, which almost never win that award.  2 of the highest drafted wr's are on teams with

questionable or less quarterback play.

 

I think his biggest rivals will be Bortles, who looked really good in his first game, and Cooks, who

did also.
