Shockey toughness?

I've always liked Shockey and i think the offense is missing his attitude and toughness. No he's not the player he once was but sometimes having a guy like Shockey in the lockerroom brings a winning mindset. The offense looked much more aggressive last season. I understand Shockey may not even wonna play at this point in his life but his presence is missed.

Not being aggressive wasn't the problem. In fact, all Carolina needed to do was lame it down.....instead Chud played the "hey, watch this" offense.....

I miss Shockey too, but I think it's a huge reach to say his absense made a difference in how agressive the offense was in game one. Any team that needs one particular player as a cheerleader, to get 'em going, isn't gonna be a winner.

IDK about him being just a cheerleader but his attitude does wear off on his teammates. And i do agree with CRA. Some of the play calling had me questioning my drink count.

What I like best about Shock was the nastiness he brought to the game, the sheer tough as nails, screw-you-I'm-gonna-gut-you-on-the-line-of-scrimmage-and-laugh-while-you-bleed-out kind of attitude. I wish we had more of it.

He's a hell of a blocker if that what you're asking.

Tolbert could be that edgy guy on offense if our OL blocked worth a crap and we put him in a position to be.

Barnidge is no Shockey.

I hardly recognized this offense.

Agree to an extent, though I suppose his time is just up.

If they could have run the ball with any moderate degree of success they would have likely won the game. I'd also like to see an intermediate pass game develop....something that is a bit quicker to develop.
