Why Cam Newton could not solve Tampa Bay's defense

39 posts in this topic

Personally, I think the Olins should take most responsibility. Don't blame Cam he did enough to win, despite it not being his best preformnance...his INTs came late, playing catch up not that it should be an excuse. Emphasis is a nonexistent oline in the first half that basically stopped the run game. Can't blame RBs either. They didn't miss holes because the holes were not there. The Oline came together too late and it was very short lived. Their inconsistant play probably made Cam look confused. Ye he made mistakes too but he is only in his second year and the Oline needs to remember that, they still need put most their effort into protecting him. I don't think anyone expected to try and play catch up to 16 points so that just fuged everything up.

I wouldn't say he didn't solve them, or that they limited him. He lit them for 300 yards. We just didn't get points. If Chud would have allowed it, Cam would have thrown for 400 yards on them.

..and 4 INT's!

"The Panthers also seemed stubbornly set on having Newton try to beat Tampa Bay with his arm, as opposed to his feet. "

--I wanna know who else felt that Chico didn't want Newton scrambling? I think they're scared of him getting hurt that they're limiting what he does best.

Why was the run game pathetic? Why did the o-line look so bad? Ever ask yourselves these questions?

Go back and look at our offensive formations for the majority of the plays last year. I'll save you the time...simply stated, we typically left more people in to block and sent fewer out in pass patterns than we did Sunday.

We didn't run effectively and the o-line looked like crap because of the offense we called. It may work against other teams, but it didn't against the Bucs and Chud didn't make enough adjustments as the game went on.

It has been mentioned....people seem to think switching to 3 WR sets with a rec TE added most of the game and trying to go deep has no impact on how an OL performs.

J Stew still rushed for more yards than Deangelo!! Wait till he is back in a game...

This is where establishing the run, despite the production does come into play. I love Chud but this was like the mentality of the Imfamous Cardinals playoff game after the first awesome drive(1 turnover and it was all passing and 5 ints).

The Bucs keyed in on the run and have speedy explosive linebackers in Lavonte David and Quincy Black. With MCCoy blowing up the middle it was too much. It was edge and A gap heat.

Also, I feel too that the defense can give "false tells" after a season of film on the spread option attack. Since the DE determines (attacking or standing)when the QB keeps and when it is handed off you just give the false tell and overplay the counter.

It seems thats what happened and a college coach knows how to attack that type of offense as Syracuse runs a form of it against Rutgers...if you stop Ron Paulas..you can stop Cam....

Also...I mentioned this before the game when I assumed we would scrap the read option with Stewart hurt since that is his baby....

You know what coach in the NFL is likely the most ready to gameplan that look week 1 this year? Especially attempting it without a RB who can do it? A freaking college coach who has spent the last several years gameplanning for those type offenses almost every week in college.

There are coaches in the NFL that haven't even thought about defending those looks they have been in the NFL so many years.....Schiano saw that stuff every Saturday.

Cam makes two interception and the world has come to and end. Matthew Stafford, Luck and other media darling QBs do the same and not much is made about it.

Such blantant hypocrisy.But what else is new???

Watching the condensed version of the game, I also saw one play where Ryan Kalil snapped the ball a bit early and Cam didn't seem ready for it. I think Olsen was split out wide and running a drag route wide open.

I pretty much agree - abandoned the run and either the coaching staff or Newton himself seemed to consciously avoid having #1 scramble/run the ball. After the first series with the two run stuffs, seemed like Chud's offensive strategy changed to:

We lost the game because Chud refused to call any short or intermediate routes almost every play. I'm sorry but he went full retard in that game because if he would have use Olsen more we would have won. The bucs obviously knew we wanted to run and pass deep and they shut both down.

I chalk it up to the first game. If Sunday is the same, prepare for a long season.
