Late in the game, with the lead, needing a 1st down to ice the game

The way we have reacted in that scenario is so freaking weird. How many times have we converted that first down we've needed in the past two seasons? Is this a mental thing that gets into Chud and Cam's heads? The playcalling suddenly turns to complete poo and Cam plays at his absolute worst.

Surely I'm not the only one that's noticed that right? As soon as I saw we needed a first down late, I knew we wouldn't. Absolutely knew it.

Why in the blue hell is this? What are we doing wrong?

Conservative play calling. We're afraid to pass the ball when we have a lead.

Designed run plays out of the shotgun when they haven't sold out to the pass.

I started laughing my ass off when I saw DEANGELO line up at QB in one of those situations late. Are you kidding me Chud?

We would have converted if Cam had held on to the ball. So not sure you can blame the play call.

So, I am glad my team prevailed.

I told everyone the Panthers had the talent to make this a game and they didn't disappoint. The team played very well. I really think I saw one dropped passed by the Panther receivers and they had good separation all day. The offensive line gave cam lots of time in the pocket and played really well thanks to them.

The defense played really well maintaining pressure on Ryan all day, I think I mentioned Clabo was struggling and Johnson had a career game against him. People complaining on Nakamura should keep in mind Safeties shouldn't be singled out one on one with wide receivers especially not one as talented as Roddy white. Olson was really good, gave us fits more than the numbers indicate.

Worst coaching part of the game by the Panthers in my opinion was the lack of urgency at end of the 1st half. Those who did not like the punt in the 4th quarter on the 4 and 1, I disagree and any NFL coach will make that call every time when you sacked the opposing QB 5 times.

Those claiming that it was not team loss need to question if their Panther fans or team fans, anyone remember the non catch that Cam didn't hike the ball quick enough? The fumble in the last few moments of the game. Cam had a game but he contributed to the loss as well as the close win its a team game.

You win as a team you lose as a team. Carolina is a better football team than its fans or the Media believes and the Panthers made me a believer.

Btw not a big fan of that option read runs, be good to see you all in a power I or broken I running down peoples throat with your talent on O.

Look forward to next match up, good luck on your guys health.

I have no idea. Also wonder why in short yardage, run situation we don't use a heavier set?

I'm pretty sure the OP is talking about the drive before that.

Hence why I also mentioned Cam. Sure it was a fluke thing, I COMPLETELY GET THAT. But still....Jesus, so frustrating.

We could have iced that game at that point?
