I have to wonder why the Panthers refuse to utilize their running game more

Both Williams and Stewart had some solid runs, but the Panthers didn't keep giving them the ball. The Panthers seem, at this point, to be hell bent upon being a pass-happy offense. I can't say that's not effective, as obviously Newton has been prolific, as has Smitty. How much of this do you think is Rivera wanting to be the anti-John Fox?

Dunno why but it's frustrating to watch when you go away from something that was working.

I'm far more worried about stopping the run.

We gave up 200+ yards on the ground while putting up 500 on offense.

Run D, ST's and RZ O our what we need to fix.

Their throwing games away to boost Cam's numbers.

It's a waste of Newton's potential when you put the entire game on his shoulders.

Typical Panthers fixing what's not broken syndrome.

They seem to be willing to give Cam as much passing experience as possible, is the only explanation I can think of.

With all the experience Cam is getting by throwing, he better end up being the best QB in the history of the NFL.

It's infuriating. I have no idea why we paid DeAngelo like we did if we're going to try and air it out for 400 yards a game, every game.

Martz started to get away from Forte but came to his senses and went back, which was smart.

Congrats on the game Dimbee.

I wasn't too concerned when our Passing game was the only aspect working...but we were doing really well. I guess we have to remember this isn't John Fox's Panthers anymore.

i've already said it. they're like kids with a new toy. all the qb keepers and runs in the redzone prove it.

it's kinda pathetic but it seems like they are bound and determined to make cam win games all by himself.

Gift and a curse of having a skilled QB that has a gun who the staff already has confidence in. Can't blame them for putting the game in his hands he's a special QB but balance is needed our backs are special too

It's not like the passing game isn't working either though. If we were throwing and not completing passes it would be different. our real problem is we have no body who can go up and make a big catch in the redzone. Smith is not good in the redzone b/c he is so short. He spreads the field out, but we need a tall elite WR like nicks, calvin johnson, etc to finish off drives.
