Picking apart the truth: Panthers lack playmakers

(By Tom Sorensen, [email protected]) EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- It looked too much like last season. Jake Delhomme opened 2009 by throwing four interceptions against Philadelphia. p/His replacement at quarterback, Matt Moore, opened 2010 Sunday by throwing three interceptions and losing a fumble against the New York Giants Here's what was evident, yet again: When the Carolina Panthers play their football, they're fine. They hand off. They grind out first downs. Occasionally DeAngelo Williams breaks a long run. Sometimes they pass to Steve Smith or a tight end. They did this in the first half against the New York Giants Sunday and it worked well enough that, going into the third quarter, they held a 16-14 lead.

I didn't read any of that, but if there's one thing we don't lack-it's playmakers.

What we do lack however, is creative coaching.

The fact that the announcers were sitting there telling us today whether each play was going to be pass or run, was embarassing.

Agreed,

We have plenty of talent on this team, the problem is the coaching staff starting with Fox.

Bland, Boring, No Creativity, Predictable, and Repetitive play calling is what the truth is.

Even the Cowboys lined up all 3 of their feature backs at the same time.

I've been wanting us to do that.

the coaching staff didn't make Moore look off a wide open Stewart to lob it into triple coverage.

We lack a quarterback named Matt Moore who doesn't fold under pressure

We lack a playcaller.

typical observer putting all the blame where it doesn't belong. Carolina either had the lead or trailed by only a single score up until the 4th quarter. With this roster you play a certain brand of football. Asking Moore to be Peyton Manning is poor coaching/playcalling.....not a lack of playmakers.

Only seems like we lacked play-makers at the QB position and the receivers not named Smith. Play calling was pretty obvious too.... run, run, pass, punt....

We lack coaches who know how to properly use the talent on their team.
