We better figure something out

Our running game is dependent on Stewart... he is clearly our best back and we missed him dearly today.

Why can't we be like the Patriots? Come out expecting a victory every game. Even the team going up against them, are afraid to go against them every time. With that said, even though we looked bad, we still looked pretty good throwing the ball. Smitty was still Smitty, Olsen was sharp all day, Murphy burned cats, and LaFell was solid. Once we get Stew back, our running should be back to par. The defense looked decent considering the turnovers we put up. They stood up at the goaline a couple of times. We got a good team, we just fail to capatilize on what we have. This error has to go to the coaching staff.

I think it's funny as hell that people were expecting 10 or 11 wins. I'm still on that 6-8 win train. What did you 10-11 win folks see to make you think that!

Cam after a year of getting it down. If the defense steadily improves through the season and we can get the O on track quickly then perhaps we can be in the playoff hunt at the end.

Hope u are right, but I still think we are a year away.

The effort was piss poor. In the first half particularly. Someone needs to be cut after a game like today. It's one thing to bust your ass and lose, it's another to show up for 1 half of ball. Shameful.

Absolutely nothing...

But at the same token, the defense looked pretty good all day. We only allowed 16 yds in the air the entire 2nd half. That stat is a little misleading due to the fact that they were up and played conservatively by running the ball. That said we didn't allow a 100 yd rusher.

Offense was just non existent accept for a handful of plays. Refs were pooty, and so was our offense.

I don't know man.... I just can't help but think its going to be another long year. I want to think that we will turn it around, and hope like hell that we do. We will have our work cut out for us next week. The offense will need to find itself this next week for sure.

Yep... Frustrated... Deflated... Dumbfounded!

We didn't have any major injuries... So that's a good thing I guess

I'm self imposing a 24 hr ban on myself... I keep reading other people's comments throughout this site, and I'm getting pissed... If more people took this approach it would probably be for the best.

See y'all later.

You have been the one yelling super bowl. I have been the voice of reason.

I hated the play calling in the first half. I wish we would run the ball out of a more traditional set and then use the option once we have established some type of balance. We had maybe 1 or 2 screens today....i mean screens are a good counter for a defense sending constant heat.

and the special teams is...i dont even know....i mean its almost unwatchable...

we dont do the little things....we lose that battle most of the time....other teams aren't as sloppy as us...i dont know what its from...coaching? personnel?......

shaking and scratching my head...

    • Hello fellow huddles. I've been a Panther fan since 2003 and usually have had the ability to watch all the games until I started at a major retail chain store in 2016.  I'm also at the bottom of the totem pole there so I have the worst scheduling hours  (ex. I have to often do a late shift one day and be back at work for an early shift the next morning , always work weekends) and 99 percent of the time I'm scheduled to work on Sundays. Apparently there's already a bunch of people in my department and elsewhere who already have Sundays off as part of their availability, so I'm guessing this is one of the reasons why I'm ALWAYS scheduled to work a late shift every Sunday it seems which is pretty much a guarantee I will miss the games this season. I've got maybe 4 days of paid time off accumulated so I guess I could pick a few games out of the season to be off on. Logic tells me that I'd probably be better served to let that keep stacking and just take a week of PTO vacation in July or something but it just sucks ass being a huge football fan and miss most of the action for the first time in my life.  I pretty much had to take this job at least in the short term last year, or just take the job that was willing to hire me the soonest honestly.  Its most certainly my fault for majoring in a dumb ass unemployable field of study in college , so I won't waste time bemoaning my living situation at this point. I'm just trying to figure out of theres anyway to at least have Sundays off. I'm guessing I could actually change my availability with the company but that's going to murder my weekly hours , I'm already part time if I miss any given day during the week I get significantly less money for rent/food/other poo I need.  I live in a small ish town in eastern NC right now. 95 percent of the jobs out here seem to be at retail/fast food oriented . I've applied to alot of jobs closer to major areas like Raleigh , Durham for the past half year but no dice so far. At this point, I'm not even sure if its possible for me to get a non retail job. Its pretty much the only thing that I have experience doing and I'm 26 so.. part of me wishes I just went to a branch of the military like alot of my high school classmates did, or gone to some trade school, or did some on the job training for a technical career out of the gate from high school, but you can say hindsight is 20/20 as the cliche goes.  The immediate suggestions would be to DVR / Record the games which isn't an option for me , can't afford expensive  100+ dollar TV packages when thats  ten percent of my monthly income , I make ends meet with this job and thats right about it.  For whatever reason I just assume that the average huddle is middle aged with a decent steady job and income living near a big city haha. Its just my imagination obviously, and what I observe through looking at pictures people post and stories they tell. Even if you don't really have much input on my senario, let me ask you this, was there ever a time in your 20s or just a time in your life where you just didn't have the ability / means to watch the games even though you still considered yourself a fan at the time? 
    • What can I make of Cameron Artis-Payne? What I don't think I can make - barring injuries - is a spot for him on this year's Panthers roster. He may surprise, but I'm not expecting it.
