What on God's green earth makes you think Chud is a better head coach than Ron? Chud needs to concentrate on scoring in the 2nd half this season, leave the head coaching to Ron.

I'm not really worried because this team doesn't use it's full playbook in the preseason.

I am a little worried because it feels like we aren't fundamentally sound on defense. Guys get open easy and run the ball easy on us. You would think we could consistently stop something, anything!


More like RR/Mcdermott needs to concentrate on the defense from 1st-2nd half this season.

A lot of team with better defense than ours last year couldve won a couple more games if they had an offense like ours.

Same story as last year. Same problems. Same dumb looks on the sideline from the staff. Same poor 3rd down rate on on and D, same lame coverage units. Its too bad. This team has no discipline.

Well, I didn't even see the game (because of a big family party), but I have watched some plays, listened to some "experts", and scrutinized some huddlers' reactions. From what I gather, the game was about getting players' feet wet and dusting off the cobwebs.

It's just preseason, and the first preseason game at that. As such, there is not that much more or less to be concerned about than the concerns everyone had before the game. Everyone should not expect a pretty game coming out the gate, especially with such a relatively young team. From what I gather, the off-season moves that were made (including the draft) pretty much manifested themselves positively tonight when looked at from a rational, mature perspective (which I believe Rivera will). Luke, Meanie, Adams, Murphy, Campbell and Nakamura made their presence felt in limited action (for the most part). The thing that we should look for is a little progression from week to week as we get closer to the season from our newly acquired key players on both sides of the football.

I want to see some improvement on ST especially, but across the board. As a D guru I expected a little more from that unit.


I didn't even read your response. Just wanted to draw attention to you gif and how we now have the greatest RB core in football history.

Carry on.

Had this thread been posted pre-game, it would have been littered with comments about the brilliance of Rivera.

Following 1 pre-season game against a strong Texans team, a game in which we played them even in the first half, and would have been ahead if not for a ST td, we now believe Ron can't coach.

The Huddle never fails to entertain.

Lol it's pretty ironic that the Giants DID end up going on to win the superbowl...maybe that "fan" was actually a prophet. I know that entire article is made-up, but it's still funny in hindsight.

In all fairness to everyone, it looked worse than it was, and it looked worse than I thought it would be. The way we talk, and the way we think, it should have been 200-0 Panthers.

Cam Newton was Rivera's pick. LONG LIVE CHICO!

Chud is overrated around here. Cam is a human highlight reel....then Norv's son steals some of daddy's trick plays and tells Chud he should run them and suddenly Chud is the greatest thing since sliced bread.

Chud is a good coach. Cam made him look great.

I honestly think it's a perfect mixture of Chuds offensive mind and Newtons god given talents. They just meshed well.

Lol this is ridiculous. I expected a few over-reactors, with a majority of "it's only preseason"ers, but this is truly a surprise.... Its one preseason game! You expect people to be playing their hearts out in a preseason game? Ron Rivera should be screaming at his team even though they are playing games that don't count just yet?

All of this is ridiculous crying at this point, things looked close when the starters were out, and both sides didn't even have their full team out and neither team were using full playbooks. They are evaluating players, how they will react in certain situations. If they are ahead the entire time, then it doesn't show fully accurate evaluations(Need to see how players handle playing whilst down in the scores as well).

I suggest saving your tears till the games actually matter.
