Panthers, others struggling with preseason blitzes

16 posts in this topic

Facing constant pressure from all angles, the Panthers have yet to score an offensive touchdown and have allowed 11 sacks entering Saturday's third preseason game against Tennessee at Bank of America Stadium.

``It seems like more of the defense is installed for the teams when we're playing them,'' Gross said Friday. ``It's almost like a real game as far as the packages that are getting thrown at us. It's definitely tough.''

``I think it's easy to say when it doesn't go well that it's just the preseason,'' Gross said. ``But the bottom line is we want to be more productive.''

Blitzing has become a much more prevalent and part of everyday schemes, so they need to practice them in exhibition games.

That's what I've been saying. They're not rookies. :smash:

This is sad:

Panthers reserve DE Hilee Taylor was to undergo arthroscopic knee surgery, Fox said after Friday's practice. Taylor entered camp facing difficult odds to make the 53-man roster.
We rode the shuttle from CMC last week with his parents & brother. Wonderful people. Hope he convalesces well and quickly. :cheers2:

the first thing they should be practicing is protecting against the blitz, but it always seems like the last thing on the coaches mind..

in Fox's defense though, that is a lot of pointless time putting his defense in a 3-4 scheme to let the OL/offense prepare. He is trying to form both his offense and defense.

THe excuse during the regular season? Let's see... our STARTING RBs know the offense and how to pick up blitzes, the O actually game-planned against the blitz packages. Considering Rex Ryan and co. were sending 8 on third and long and our 5th string RB wiffed on his block to protect the QB. We were one dimensional, working on the pass in the first two games. Come on. Show some football common sense. Yes, there will be sacks in the regular season, but if you send 8 and we pick them up, you lose 6 points. He was showing off for HBO.

    • maybe but I doubt it would be the same...given Putin actually hates Hillary.  So there could be some money junk worth looking into but not on the Trump scale and not. 
    • With the depth of this draft, I have no problems going after more picks.  I am of leery of moving up to get guys when you end up having to sell the farm.  I know Gettleman loves to say he'd rather have quarter than two dimes, so I think that's going to be a part of this draft. Then again, if we can get two impact players, a couple of contributors, can we call this a failure?  Only time will tell.  According to the draftniks like Mayock (who'se up for the Redskins job) say you can get a 2nd round pass rusher in prior years drafts in the 4th.  Seems to say to me that moving up may not have as much value as we think.
    • But Russians are the enemy, or at least 100 days ago. Why should that change so much?  Anything to undermine the President at the time. To bad racism can't be used as a defense.
