Game Grades: Giants at Panthers

I was really surprised that we didn't learn our lesson with the Bucs. I really hope they did this game and will add more pro set next week.

How'd I miss this thread???

I think some of Zod's grades here are generous.

Cam really doesn't deserve too much of the blame. His line wasn't there for him and his receivers weren't getting seperation. Coming from behind trying to create magic, you might throw a couple picks. No big deal. If the rest of the team gave as much as Cam gives, they'd be 3-0 at the moment.

How to beat the Panthers: Dominate the lines.

To be fair here if you totally dominate the OLine and DLine against any team you will probably win. The whole game stems from the trenches.

Well the Bucs and Giants both did a damn fine job of it.

Even Kalil got beat a few times, Hangartner missed assignments, Gross was getting abused, Williams was also getting raped. The line was terrible AGAIN.

I can agree with this.

At least our long snapper didn't get hurt and we looked like OAK week 1.

One problem I saw with the defense is that we were giving their receivers a 10-yard cushion on almost every passing play. I don't remember us trying to jam their guys at the line even once. When all you do is play zone like that, it's easy for the opponent's receivers to just find the holes in the zone.

    • I do think Kpassagnon is an interesting prospect that needs to be in the right situation to thrive. It just so happens that we have one of the best 6'7" defensive ends in the history of the NFL on a reunion tour with us in 2017 and maybe if need be, 2018 if he holds up.   Kpassagnon's attitude and work ethic is strong and tireless. His 3-cone and vert scare me for a defensive end, and that's not something you can teach. Being able to bend and explode off the snap to beat OL is not something that Peppers can show him, but maybe Peppers can show how to use athleticism to his advantage.  I can see him being just another Michael Johnson/Erik Armstead player or I could also see the environment here in Carolina benefiting him and he becomes a Carlos Dunlap kind of lanky DE that causes headaches along our DL. Kpassagnon's spider web looks amazing and awful all at the same time. I'd take him in this draft, but "where" is the big question.
