Good article about how efficient our Passing Game is:

"And even though the Panthers' 414 attempts were the fewest in the NFL this season."

Had no idea.

And Smith and Moose still put up numbers like they did. Cool

If by efficient you mean fortunate smith can catch passes in triple coverage, and jump higher than everyone else.

Well the third leading receiver on the team was DeAngelo. So that should tell you that it was Smitty and Moose and that's about it.

Superman does make mere mortals look good.

Obviously, everything Jake does is 100% luck. Nevermind the fact that he had his best statistical year without Steve Smith.

It didn't take long. I guess I can't say I'm too surprised.

You make it sound like a bad thing. I can't understand why anyone would belittle an offense with such a weapon. When you know that your guy can do the things that Smith does all while protecting the ball from being intercepted, it isn't a high risk move and should be attempted several times a game. Especially at the end of the game in a clutch situation.

If I were Jake not only would I be chucking it to Smith in crunch time, I would be doing it more often not less. Youd be stupid not to!!

Everybody needs to ask themselves this question...if you were the QB of the Panthers and you were in a situation where you were desperate for a big play, who would you throw the ball to?

did anyone watc brady last year? the anoited one had everyone slobbering all over his junk when the threw it to moss, even when moss had to bail him out completely (maimi game where he underthrew it, moss double covered makes a 1 handed catch). you find ways to get the ball to playmakers, when they can do what moss and smitty can, at times you ask them to make the play. when brady did it he was poraised, when jake does he is belittled. this is not to say these 2 qbs are in the same ballpark, but when it comes to throwing it up and asking for the wr to make a play, one is a genious, the other is an idiot thats bailed out.

i like moose, jarret, king, dante, and the rest, but if there is 1 guy i want to throw to on the team its smitty. i know he is gona fight for it like none of the others, and has the skill to make the unbelievable catch. i also know if i get it to him, he can make the 1 or 2 moves for a td. can moose, or any other WR or TE do what he can after the catch no.

i anything we abandon smitty when we are in the lead.

Trick question. I'd hand it off to Goings.

No one was belittling the offense.

I bet you the game plan isn't to go out there and chuck the ball into double and triple coverage and pray smith comes down with a miracle, and if it is then that's even worse.

If Jake was actually accurate those miracles wouldn't be miracles at all, they would be touch downs.

It's pretty bad when even moose has to cut off his route to come back to the football.

Of course you should throw smith the ball, no one said not too.

So all that "i would throw it to smith blablabla is laughable".

Other receivers on this team can play too if given a chance, Jarrett has caught damn near everything tossed his way(which isn't much), and mostly on big downs such as 3rd.

Jake locks in on Smith too much which is a huge problem, just refer to 2005, and ask Seattle.

Which is a good thing to look into considering were in the playoffs again this year, ya know, a time of the year where one man will not magically bail you out every time.

Smith can be shutout by a good defense. If we make it far into the playoffs Jake will have to make plays to other targets, as we will face teams that can stack the box and double smith effectively.

What team can 8 in the box and double Smith? No team.

It's actually impossible without putting another Receiver wide open on every play.
