Yep. I made that exact point in another thread. Rams offense compared to last year is night and day.

OCs make the offense, not the other way around. Shula's scheme has been long figured out, and he's too damn stubborn to adjust. The best OCs are able to gameplan SPECIFICALLY for certain teams and games, instead of just having a default gameplan. Bills game is a perfect example. Instead of going into that game specifically with a plan to attack their weak secondary, we stick to our default ground and pound gameplan and run CMC right into the strength of their D whether it worked or not.

This is one possibility. The other is that this system was developed to fit Cam Newton's skills and abilities and that the belief is that other more popular systems do not fit his skills. I continue to believe that Cam will always be about a 59% passer with very limited ability to make post snap reads and simple not good under center. He is what he is at this point. Most plays start from the shotgun. I do get the feeling that teams have figured out the system that the Panthers run. Furthermore, I tend to believe that the shotgun is often not the friend to diversity in the running game especially when you take away the threat of Cam Newton running.

Get him a decent QB coach and then we can talk about a lot of what cam can and can't do. My opinion, for what it is worth, there is not one decent offensive coach around him who demands more, Shula by himself is bad enough, now add Dorsey.

when a QB continues  to take 5 to 7 step drops in the Redzone when correct technical, launch point for the ball is a 3 step or a step up in the pocket, that is a very very fixable problem, why hasn't been?

so the knee-jerk reaction to a Thursday night game that had 80 points scored suggesst our team with a prime defense now needs to score in the 30's or we are in trouble?

I am thinking something like 26-23 Panthers

I think this is a probable outcome.  I do think Carolina will be up 10 late and Brees will score late to keep it close but dont think we give up too many points.  Lots of ground clock control.  Problem is Brees can still score fast so you have to finish drives with TDs more often than not.

I just don't see any chance of that unless the OL plays a lot better than they did last week. Are we really THAT reliant on Ryan Kalil? I'm hoping we aren't because at this stage in his career he's just plain injury prone. There's no way around it. Really hoping a lot of those struggles were due to a last minute change at center. That's a big deal considering he's the guy making all the protection calls.

I will say the same thing. Losing your center right before a game on a team that barley has time to adjust the line is never a good thing.

It's frustrating because I actually think Shula is pretty decent at coming up with an initial game plan. He just absolutely sucks at countering the inevitable adjustments opponents make during the course of the game.

Can't agree more. His actual plays are really good but his use of them is terrible. Like the wild cat play with Buffalo.

Starting to hear excuses for the offense already.

Sorry, there are no excuses.

 

The Panthers have 4 first round picks and two second round picks at offensive skill positions at their disposal. Plenty of fire power to score on the Saints.

Time for a solid 30+ point game. 

But Cam's not healthy, remember?

I'm sure RRs ready to make excuses already because Kalils out. I don't think they realize that the excuses really show just how Incompetent they are  

As bad as I can't stand him.  Belicheat  lost his best LB plus all kind of other injuries Got emabarrased at home and came back and beat the crap out of NO. 

Good coaches have excuses cued up and ready to use.  Great coaches deal with it and game plan around such

it is a Shame that during his time here, the offensive coaching was abysmal outside of the first year with  Chud

I hope you did not truly mean that. Things might be boiling around here about Shula but I remember this board totally exploded over Chud and his lack of game planning and adjustments along with gimmicky plays that did not work and often put Cam in position to get pounded. He couldn't be gone fast enough in most minds, mine included.
