1st Half Review

33 posts in this topic

Not bad for the starters offensively. Cam looked pretty good. Missed by a bit on some throws (the one to Smith as he laid out at the pylon was JUST off as well as the throw in the endzone to Tutu), one dangerous throw early, but overall not bad. One of those games where had he been in for a whole half at least, he would have turned it on and probably shredded. Double Trouble looked sharp. Not impressed so far by Tolbert, but it is the preseason and his role was minor (at least for tonight).

Special teams is still poo.

Defense is swiss cheese. However, Kuechly is an animal. Very excited about him. I feel like had Beason been able to go, we would have looked better. Our secondary is just.....well, you know. Gamble looked good though (as expected).

Murphy looks good. Very impressed and hopeful that he can step into a consistent role in the regular season, even if it's just rotational with the other receivers.

We have some work to do and we need to get a bit better, but I feel good about it. Half of the gameday thread in the first quarter was nothing but worrying over a fuging preseason game. Chill guys. If you don't think that guys will turn it up a bit more in the regular season, then you clearly haven't watched enough NFL football.

Forgot to mention Medlock. Saw him in TC on Wednesday and thought "yep, Mare is gone". Mare should be cut after this game or the next. Medlock has a stronger, more accurate leg. Keep Medlock.

Having a starting LB out and another LB who will be big in rotation out doesn't really help us look good. DL looked OK to me. Held their own at least. Problem is the secondary, at the end of the day.

I don't see a 6-10 team. I see a team going through basic plays in the playbook in the first preseason game of the season with the starters and thus, not able to really explode like they will come week 1. Last preseason, everybody said "offense looks off. Chud needs to pick it up or we'll win 2 games all year." What happened? Chud opened the playbook week 1 and never looked back. You have one of the best offenses in the league. No need to show off your playbook in an exhibition.

I don't see how you see a 6-10 team.

I think you meant to put 10-6....Which is what I'm seeing. These bullshit mistakes will get fixed by week 1. If you didn't mean 10-6, GTFO

i think the success of the offense has blinded people to the absolute mess that the defense and special teams are in.

the defense has been on a downward spiral over the past several seasons...and the special teams unit just doesn't exist.

until these 2 phases of the game show life, they are a liabilty to any progress that the offense makes.

I'm not making a prediction record wise, because that is ignorant after two series of the starting units on the field. Yes, ST and defense still look bad, but it's 2 series people. I am withholding all real judgment until the 3rd game when the starters actually get some time to work with. ST needs to pick up by next week though. That is unacceptable.

    • This is a huge cop out and it says that the only way to save our beloved means of governing is to bail out of the system and then have a revolution and start over again. You fix the system by casting knowledgeable votes in every frikkin' election. Every election. Local, state and federal. The situation is screwed right now because frikkin' lazy voters don't take the time to learn anything about their local candidates, or their state ones (here in NC that really bit us in the ass, didn't it?). Those elections lead to the ones above them AND frikkin help decide who will be taking part in primaries and even putting in the votes for the electoral college. An educated and willing electorate also tears the crap out of big money donors and tends to churn the political offices for the good of all. But no, a bunch of folks just drag themselves out of their cocoons to cast a vote for the president and maybe check off a box or two of people whose names sound familiar every four years. And then we've got the whiniest and most self righteous of the bunch, like you, who say that votes don't matter and they aren't going to get involved in the whole corrupt system. They march around smug and whining, putting on airs of intellectual superiority while complaining about every frikkin thing under the sun. Get up, learn your candidates and start voting local and up. All politics is local. ALL POLITICS IS LOCAL. Your town council or Board of Education or County Commission matters. Your State senators and representatives matter. BIG FRIKKIN TIME HERE. Doing this is how you really start reforming the system. This is how you start beating back the machinery in place that goes and grabs people by the busload and brings them to the polls to elect idiots and thieves. And then, maybe, just maybe, you run for office or volunteer some time to work for a candidate you believe in. You attend meetings and voice your opinions and hold politicians accountable, those in your own backyard first. And buy a frikkin' newspaper once in a while or buy an ad in one. No matter what crap the politicos try to tell you, those guys and gals scribbling notes at government meetings and then getting ink stains from printing the stories are your first line of defense and your best teachers. But stop acting all superior about not voting. Really, be a responsible adult. You have to work for it. Our republic doesn't have a reset button like your Xbox.
    • Steve Smith. Receiver, actually. No worries though.
    • With CJ's back issues I'm not even sure how good I feel this year.  If he's a full go and we do go DE at 8 on paper it's top front 7 of all time worthy.
