Armanti ranks 40th on punt return avg right now. His longest is 14 yds. That's NOT GOOD. And you can't argue that it is.


you can argue our punt coverage sucks ass.. :jc:

Right on, it's not good at all. Take this as you will, but I also haven't seen any blown chances on his part, either. Hasn't lost one fielding them, either. Seems like there might be a whole lot more going wrong in the PR game than simply Armanti not breaking off huge returns. If Hogan hits the field I'd love to see him get a crack at it if he is solid fielding them.

Yeah for real. I think we may have the worst ST in the league. I mean our ST may even be worse than our run defense which is plain scary. And to add to it our LBs are dropping like flies which is not helping ST in any way shape or form.

So, in other words, on those occasions where the Panthers' D forces punts, the Panthers do better in the field position swap that all but one other team (Chicago).

Arenas has the most impressive stats for PR's thru Wk 5. But, notice that on average, he catches the ball more than ten yards farther down the field than Edwards. Houston's PR gets more than 11 more yards of space to work with.

Notice that when you take away Sproles' (NO, ranked third) one long return, his average falls to near Edwards. If you take away Hester's (Chicago, ranked 1st) one long return v. the Panthers, he has 32 total punt return yards (8yd avg.) the rest of the season so far.

My point is, Edwards has not been stellar so far, but those that have been seem to have longer fields to work with, and his performance so far has not hurt the team. Give him some time, as you can see one or two long returns really boost the average. If the Panthers' PR team rank stays this high and Edwards doesn't turn the ball over, then they're doing their jobs.

If the D would stop the other team in their own end a little more often, you might see some more opportunities for good returns. Carolina currently allows 43% conversions on third down.

IDK what happened to Davis but its rare. Most recover without problem.

whenever he gets some blocking i think he'll start breaking out

as for WR, Rivera said the opportunities aren't there since they aren't running 4 WR sets. I'd like to see them try some of the wildcat with him along with DWill. Or maybe run a reverse with him sometime. give him a chance out there

Why run a wildcat with Edwards when you have Newton who can run just as well and can pass it much better. I would like us to use a 4 or 5 wide set with an empty backfield and let newton run it up the field. If they don't cover everyone we get an easy catch. If we spread them out, we have enough linemen to cover the 4 defensive linemen and the Mike. Should allow big gains either way.

I keep forgetting about Hogan; but I did watch the 30 for 30 last night on ESPN and his name was dropped a couple times. Some scrub sports agent said he really thought he was gonna sign Hogan, and if he did, Hogan would have been the highest drafted player he'd ever represented.

pretty good 30/30 last night, but I expect a little more from Spurlock.

I think Butler has been a very pleasant surprise.

I honestly think no one cares about Pugh or Stanford
