Game Grades - Panthers at Bucs

43 posts in this topic

When a defense holds a team to 16 despite two turnovers and a blocked punt, you do not give them a C-.

Maybe deserved a C but I can't help feeling if that was a playoff caliber team we would have lost by 30. But....

It never fails, for the past 4 or 5 seasons, our oline has been pathetic in the first few weeks of the season. Yesterday was no exception.

The defense didnt play very well in the first half, couldn't get off the field. But when they finally did, all the offense did was put them right back on the field. There were only a few minutes this game were our offense somewhat resembled last year's, and it was minimal.

I think the grades are dead on. Minus the first time the Bucs had the ball, I think the D played lights out. 2 turnovers and a blocked punt and I think only 3 points were given up off of those. Thats about as good as you could ask for. I was actually very proud of the D yesterday, and hope its a sign of things to come. I mean, we will not be a top 10 D this season with holes like we have at DT and in the Secondary.

O was about as bad as it has ever been. An F was generous IMO. I know this one and that one showed some good stuff, but these grade are based as a whole, and as a whole they SUCKED AZZ!

I dont understand why our Oline takes so long to get going. If I remember correctly they typically suck the first few games every year.

Can you go more in-depth with these grades? They don't really tell anyone anything but the obvious. Giving this offense an F because of the lack of running tells me nothing about how well the passing game did. Give a different rating to the different positions, the coordinators, first/second half performance, etc. Overall, yes, let's give the offense an F, but there's a lot more you could tell us. I mean, we all saw the game. We know what 10 rushing yards means and that it's bad. Give us more credit than that, Zod. This isn't our first season watching football.

Is this your own grading on the team?

Bc Offense played like a D+ and Deffense played like a C-, not B-.

I said it many times already, our Defense looked better in the second half bc of a rookie coach staying honest and managing the game. If it was a team like N.O., we'd be blown out. Quit looking at stats and the score.

Defense held the Bucs to 1/7 on third down in the second half. The object of ball/clock control offense is to keep the ball for as long as possible and to keep the clock running. Not to run three and outs and punt the ball. Our offense, particularly the o-line (and more specifically our two guards), poo the bed and didn't hold up their part of the bargain.

The defense deserves the B. They played a soft cover two zone to start the game because they didn't know what to expect from the offense. Even though the cover two gave up underneath passes on those first two drives, it did not give up big plays. Once we adjusted the defense to really go against what the bucs were doing, they locked that poo down and the Bucs offense went to poo.

Defense was a bit better but dnt let the stats fooled you. Schiano stayed honest and manage the game by running the ball with a rookie back. To kill the clock and put Cam on the sideline. That's why it was three and outs for the Bucs.

I gurantee you that if Schiano came back in the second half throwing those little "dump offs" and short passes and aimed for a high scoring game, they would've accomplish just that.

You don't play "let's go 3 and out on purpose" with only a 6 point lead. Even a college coach knows that.

    • I would give anything to have 23 year old Jonathan Stewart on our Roster.. as years have gone by, I feel his potential has been wasted behind DeAngelo Williams, who in his own right was a beast for us in his prime..    As we wait eagerly and impatiently for our pick, let us remember and appreciate the beast that stewart was..( still is) ..   He was so explosive..  bouncy...  flexible.. powerful.. fast...      BEAST...  I became a fan in 2003 because I won a panther football in 1st grade at the end of that year for good behavior and learning my 1st grade stuff.. the following year..  I watched them in the Super Bowl in 2004... became a fan,, in my childhood, i grew and grew on them.. it solidified in 2008 when i watched double trouble GAPE the Bucs Live.. my first Panthers game.. what a night to solidify my fandom.. i received monday night tickets as a gift for getting all A's my 8th grade year...   since, ive seen a Panther great leave in DeAngelo.... but Stewart remained..   (some deangelo Highlights remain.. its OK, hes a panther great *turned sour*    but non the less)         i had SO MUCH PRIDE in our run game...  every madden i owned i made sure double trouble had their share...   and then there was Stewart.. the young, bouncy, fast guy... he turned tough...  he turned into a vet... a MoFo who will take YOU OUT.. carrying our ROCK along with CAM...     and Then, the best Expirience we have all experienced......    #2015     And i had so much pride, FINALLY.... Stewart was recognized......             A recoil year in 2016...            And I really believe there is a revival in 2017 of double trouble.......    #Fournette   except there isnt a dead roster... we have a Loaded roster, that will WIN...  winning with Cam Newton...  Stewart.. and ....         Let the Carolina GAPING run game live on folks...  I love the PAnthers like all of you... heres to 2017.
