A Panther In Lousiana

Rate the level of pressure on Jimmy C

27 posts in this topic

Your 1st start as a pro football player in the midst of a "rebuilding year"/"youth movement". Your team sits at 0-2 and desperate for a win against Cin. They bench Moore and give you the keys to ride now. While you are used to pressure in college, everything is totally different now.

Sports stations bicker about starting you so early. Sportsnation voted 71% that starting you now was a good idea. Mel Kiper loves you. The verdict is still out in Charlotte but there are people planning to boo you the moment you mess up.

In your opinion, rate the level of pressure on Jimmy going into this weekend.

About half what he faced as a Junior against Michigan.

I'd say the pressure is pretty high. Allot of people are expecting him to bring the house down. I just hope fans keep it in check on Sunday and don't start booing him on the second drive like they did Matt.

i don't think pressure is very high for him. i don't think he'll get pulled all year either regardless. save injury. watching a hyped up rookie is gonna put butts in the seats. i'd like to go just for that reason. i don't expect a win. i'd just like to see him live. thats as "in person". not as in "not die". actually both though the way the Oline has been.

Charlotte fans typically are not very educated so the pressure will be there although it shouldn't be. If people start booing I will flip out.

    • Im pretty sure he was white as a ghost in the comics bro
    • They're results, not skillsets.  Too many factors go into those results to get a conclusive evaluation.  For instance, how many times was Howard targeted downfield compared to Njoku?  How was he used in the redzone...as a receiver, blocker, the primary option, and so forth? And yards after contact is a very inconsistent measure since not all contact is the same, nor are the situations in which a player gets the ball.  Not to mention the role the offensive scheme and surrounding talent plays.  Heck, if all we had to do was look at the numbers, there wouldn't be any need for the combine, all-star games, pro days, private workouts, etc.  Teams could just pull out the stat sheet and make their selections.  No, teams look for the skillsets a player possesses to determine how they translate to the NFL.  Stats are only an indicator to use as part of the puzzle.  So, just looking at the actual skills, what does Njoku possess that is superior to Howard?  Has he shown better hands?  Has he shown he can run better routes?  Is he a better athlete?  Is he a better blocker? The answer is no to all of them.  Does that mean Njoku is a bad player?  Absolutely not.  But Howard clearly has the better tools, and is considered the better prospect by virtually every evaluator for a reason.
