Being Richard Marshall:An Intervention

15 posts in this topic

Last season, I would argue extensively that the three most explosive play makers on the team were Steve Smith, DeAngelo Williams and Richard Marshall.

All three had the ability to get the ball and take it to the house. Unfortunately, only two of these guys are making plays in 2008. Hello Richard Marshall...you are being called out.

Ken Lucas is getting hammered this season...Gamble was the screw up last season. This is the year Richard Marshall is supposed to vault past to the starting lineup. It just has not happened. In fact Marshall has regressed this season. The Int. run back on that fake field goal in the pre-season shows he has great instincts and skills. Marshall just has not delivered like he has in past seasons. I had great hopes for him but with 21 being torched by every receiver he covers we have no one to step up. Marshall, I just expected so much more. He is my disappointment of the year for the Panthers.

Gamble was pretty good last year, then he had a cast on that hurt his play, but he was still the best corner. Marshall has been overrated by fans for a while now, he had been getting bailed out by terrible throws but now the QBs are hitting the receivers.

our "fix what isn't broken" defensive scheme is my disappointment of the year for the Panthers.

Marshall is not is not overrated the reason he has not showed up this year is because of our dumb DC Turdo having them in bad position with his horrible play calling on D.

Marshall is in as a Nickle CB and he (like in the Giants game most recently) was put in and blitzed the QB, leave'n his guy wide open on those quick lil passes to (EX: the other Steve Smith in the first half of that Giants game)

I'm not say'n he's played to what I expected this season, but he's also not on the field as much as either.

In my opinion (take that as you may) it's more the coordination and schemes of our secondary that is the problem. Gamble, Lucas and Marshall are very athletic and Harris and Godfrey are good safeties, but there's clearly something not clicking that's causing problems. Missed assignments, being out of place, something because they are better than they are playing.

Turdo was calling plays the last two seasons. Marshall still made plays and jumped on wideouts and clamped his mitts on the ball when he got to them.

I do not think he is overrated(ie. he has bad passes thrown at him) just like DeAngelo is not Overrated(Foster fans used to say Deangelo had a better YPC cause Foster wore down the defense.) Of course with that said....Marshall is not helping with keeping the secondary from stinking.
