I was impressed with the crowd noise on defensive third downs, but Zod is right, it was too loud when we had the ball. I was in 529 and I have to give that section credit... lots of good fans and people that know to chill when we're on offense. My voice is completely gone today from yelling on 3rd downs... and for screaming about SS's awesome over the shoulder catch and Beason's game winning INT.

There were also a few third and longs for the Panthers when the cameras caught large groups of Panthers fans standing up screaming and motioning with their hands for other fans to do the same. Embarrassing. We still have a ways to go.

Again true, but the mistake was not really one of timing, it looks to me (I'm watching it now because I'm in Asia and have to download games) that A: Lineman was pushed back into Cam cutting off his line, and B: he tried to pitch the ball with the wrong hand, leading to a "push" rather than a toss.

But I wonder...if the fans are to blame for this particular play...are they to be celebrated for being loud on all of the other goal line plays on both offense and defense? I mean as you say linemen do not get off the ball as quickly..so by that logic the same could be said on defense and the fans should be quiet on a defense goal line situation...or for that matter...EVERY play of the game?

Folks all over this board have in the past cried about our "wine and cheese" fans with our stadium rules and lamented how our fans are not really into games. Am i the only one here that wishes our fans were a force to be reckoned with like the Eagles (god I hate that team) Giants, Green Bay..etc?

I was amongst the wine and cheesers, and even they were too loud on that 4th down goal line play. Someone 2 rows behind me yelled 'everybody shut the f*ck up, we're on offense'...It was hilarious.

naw, you need a few inches and you have 6'5 250 behemoth QB just put your head down and the distance. even Brady gets those and he's a girl. if we had done that and failed, nobody would have been like "dude wtf we shoulda ran the option to the outside!!" that playcall was bad. end of story

This dammit. Our fans are always going to be retarded but that had nothing to do with the retarded coaching staff.

About the defense i am rather impressed by CJ he is on fire, his stats are under average but the pressure on the QB is insane allowing the whole defense to play better. A litle like Julius Peppers..
Godfrey finally some love for an underrated Safety, Godfrey played well both games and he saved us several times. phew..
The Edwards brothers are just impressive, i am still sad for McClain he could have learned from them..

About the offense, When you need a big play just call Smitty & Cam.
Lafell nohing to say just watch (that kid was my draft choice!!). Triple troubles are back on tracks, DW and JS i think Tolbert deserve to join the troubles crew!
As expected the offensive line was much much better.

Coaching well done for fixing the problems!

Grade? hmm A for everyone !

And as usual now, sorry for my weird English..

Three things I loved:

Offensive Line - the Big Uglies bounced back with a great game. Cam had all day, and the rush blocking was solid.

Physicality of the Defense - Some big hits and they played with a lot of emotion.

Cam Maturing Some - After two bad decisions in the 1st half (taking a sack and the lateral to Tolbert), Cam came back, and threw the ball away on a few plays. Sometimes an incomplete pass is a good thing.

Josh Norman, Godfrey and our d-line really impressed me yesterday

Offensively LaFell played great, imagine if Gettis can come back fully healthy. We are going to be near impossible to defend.

Hey Zod, what would you give Greg Schisno and that call at the end of the Giants game?

i hate that this might be necessary...but maybe start sending text messages to ticket holders telling them to treat it like a golf game when we have the ball but get loud when the other team has the ball. maybe have some people with signs like this around the stadium when we've got the ball...

Section 104 fans were pretty crappy. I think the wave started in 105, I'm ashamed to say. It was during a tv timeout, though. As for that 4th down play, an option pitch was the wrong call. Blame the fans all you want, but Tolbert or Cam falling forward picks up that inch.

The natural urge for a fan leading up to a big play is to yell and scream. I've done it just like many others. It doesn't make you a bad fan, just an ignorant one. Eventually I learned that when the home team is on offense, the intelligent thing to do is STFU. Go crazy when we get the first down or touchdown or whatever. But it is a fact that the offense is at a disadvantage when the crowd is going nuts and they are struggling to hear the QB.
