What I expect to see Sunday

33 posts in this topic

OK, so we're all pumped for Sunday in Tampa. This marks the first step on our road to the playoffs. This game sets the tone for us. With that being said, it is football and it is the NFL. This is what I expect to see Sunday.

Offense:

We come out strong. We impose our will on the Bucs. A couple of hiccups with penalties in the first half, and these penalties may stall some promising drives. Cam makes good decisions, but does throw one errant pass that gets picked. After this, he shakes it off and has a pretty solid day.

Our RBs have a field day. We rotate them well and they all do their part. Cam also has a good day on the ground, picking up big yards at least once on a read-option.

Murphy shows why he is our best #3. He puts up some solid numbers and has a big play or two. Lafell and Smitty pick up where they left off last season, though Lafell may drop some passes here and there that he should probably have caught.

Defense:

Run defense, we look great. Pass defense....well, you know. We get some turnovers thanks to the secondary, but they also have a few breakdowns. Some halftime adjustments get it tightened up, but they're still suspect. Luckily, we have a big enough lead in the third where the Bucs have to throw more, which plays to our benefit.

ST:

Well, we look better than we've looked in a while. Adams doesn't do anything special, but he does get us a few yards on some returns. Kick coverage is still poo, and we all cuss incessantly at the TV for most of the game.

Overall:

We win by 17+. I have us winning 38-13.

It'll be closer than most here expect. The Bucs are better than last year and will come out swinging.

Our offense starts slowly, with only a FG in the 1st quarter, then scores 10 in the 2nd for a 13-10 halftime lead.

In the 3rd, we pick off Freeman and get some points out of it; 20-10 Panthers.

The Bucs return a kickoff/punt deep into our territory and score as a result. 20-17 Panthers.

Then the 4th quarter comes and our RB's start to pick up steam. Cam throws a long TD to seal the win. Bucs get a late field goal in garbage time, but can't recover the onside kick.

FINAL: 27-20 Panthers

The Panthers are better than last year and will not only come out swinging, but connecting.

    • Is this dude a real life person or an alt of @GOOGLE JIM BOB COOTER that is a living joke exemplifying the white culture thread? 
    • lol no one takes him seriously. He gets a courage award for bringing his hand-me-down  dad-politics into ttb while still asking to himself, "what does ttb mean again?"
    • I'm extremely pumped by this addition. It has to be the biggest addition since the team came back to Charlotte. I was too young to follow the original talented Hornets (Im sad), so I'm not going back that far. People and fans can say what they want about D12, but the man still have a lot left in his tank. And, Im tired of hearing how he doesnt fit in today's game anymore. There are only a handfull of big men today that I can really say, can shoot the ball: Davis, Towns, Embiid, Cousins and Aldridge.  Howard can still dominate! That's all that matters. The only neg I will give Howard is that I do see a lack of desire/effort to play at times. But, I believe MJ can help motivate him back to being a dominant big man again for next two years here.  Dwight Howard averaged a double-double last season: 13.5 ppg, 12.7 rpg, 1.2 bpg, and 1.4 apg.  D12 had "53", I said FIFTY-THREE double doubles last season. He had six games where he averaged 20 rebounds or more.  Guess who was the last Bobcats/Hornets era to even come close to that number.....Emeka Okafor in 2004 as a rookie with 47 double doubles (35.6 MPG). Then Big Al had 42 in 2013 (35.0 MPG). Howard did that while averaging 29.7 min per game. If you count out his 2014 season where he only played in 41 games, last season was the LEAST amount of minutes played per game in Howard's career.  Only three guys (Towns, Whiteside and Gobert) averaged more double doubles than Howard in 2016. And only four other guys ( Whiteside, Drummond, DJordan and Gobert) averaged more RPG than Howard last season. Other than Towns, none of those guys mentioned above can really shoot the ball any better than Howard. But, teams still want them on their teams for big contracts.    D12 will be a beast this upcoming season!
