How much time will Joe Adams see on offense?

66 posts in this topic

I wouldn't mind seeing him on end arounds and get some slot work. Maybe even take a pitch or toss from Cam. Smitty lined up in the "pistol" directly behind Cam a lot last season.

not much. i'd think that pilares, murphy, tolbert, and barnidge all get more play time before he does (as far as non-starters go). maybe armanti as well. he'll prob only come in as a decoy, end around option, or a tailback (like percy harvin does sometimes).

not much. there just won't be enough targets to go around after smitty, olsen, lafell, tolbert, murphy, stewart, and williams. i suspect that only 3-4 passes a game go to people outside of that group of 7 and even then i would guess that barney would be next in the pecking order.

it's going to be a while before he'll get enough of an opportunity to do much more than return punts...unless he really lights it up consistently when he gets the ball and he does a good job of getting open and noticed by cammy cam when he's on the field and can show himself to be reliable and/or a legit threat.

Very little. Doubt Pilares or AE get many offensive snaps either.

i'd actually be surprised if AE even got a jersey most weeks...or any 6th or 7th WR. i see us only going with 5 active WRs in any week. pilares and adams get one just because they are returners.

If preseason is any indication of depth order ( I don't know how the coaching staff determines things) then Adams will be a returner and that's pretty much it seeing how he wasn't even targeted. So it's possible AE will dress.

it just depends on how many spots they want to go to WR as opposed to some other positions. i think they are more limited personnel-wise in regular season.

Hopefully Adams goes the way of Smitty starting off on ST but showing too much to ignore him on offense.

True, last year they had 6 dressed with AE and Pilares returning. This year tutu is gone and Pilares and Adams are returning. Guess we'll just have to wait and see how they order the chart.

    • Steve Beuerlein's pointing about not holding on to the ball so long was interesting to me. Some of you who remember when Beuerlein was here will remember that he took a straight beating in '99 and '00 and he also had a tendency to hold onto the ball for too long. It might be smart for Cam to listen to someone who had 21 surgeries from football injuries because of this. I love me some Cam and I want to see him as the starting QB for the Panthers for a long time to come.
    • As an LSU fan, I've seen nearly all of Fournette's games and he is the real deal. He was the best running back on the team. It does not take a genius to run the read option running attack and most of the work is on the Qb. I wouldn't mind either but Fournette should be taken if he's available.      My pipedream is for us to trade next year's 1st and both 2's for us to get a Fournette and Howard combo. I think it would be worth it.
    • I'm surprised that people actually buy into this idea that our offense is going to look drastically different. I'd be shocked if it does. I hope I'm wrong, but a leopard doesn't change it's spots. If Shula had the ability to adapt he would've already done it. He is who he is and this offense is what it is. If you want real changes you make a change at OC. We didn't and we'll see an offense that looks far more familiar than different next season.
