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.
