Game Grades - Seahawks at Panthers
Posted 08 October 2012 - 06:55 AM
On with the grades...
The option doesn't work. The option, it doesn't work. One thing that doesn't work, the option. If I had to choose one thing that doesn't work, it would be the option. Option. No. Work. No.
Offensive Grade: F
Overall the defense was good. After all, they put up more points than the offense.
Kuechly is a rising star in this league and had a great presence in the huddle as he gave out the play call. The players already respect him, he is a natural leader.
Alexander and Norman are to rookies that will be contributing to the Panthers for a long time, fans should be excited about that.
Captain had a fantastic game. Obviously his pick 6 was great to see, but his tackling and help in run support was something to be equally excited about.
Defensive Grade: B
See offensive grade.

everyone thought that he would shred us.
defense held him to 85 yards and no TDs.
quite impressive. the defense played really well, even if it was one of the weakest offenses in the league.
the defense did really well and put this team in position to win. the offense sucked and lost the game. they should have been able to get into the end zone at least once. coaching didn't help, but i think the game plan was at least good enough to get us one offensive score. the players on the field just didn't get the job done. this is most certainly on them.

McDermott caught a lot of flack for crappy defense, but he really has been doing his best to make chicken salad out of chicken shiz. I mean, outside of our linebacking corps, we maybe have one player in Charles Johnson who anyone would even mention in a Pro Bowl conversation (even jokingly). The rest of our defense is a who's who of "who?" And yet with adjustments, tweaks, and new facets every week, we've seen them get better and better.
Chud on the other hand has done the exact opposite. He has taken without a doubt one of the most talent-loaded offenses in the league and allowed them to be mediocre at best. The O-line personnel on paper are almost all studs, our stable of running backs is solid (I would say the best in the game, but I still hate signing Tolbert, and still have no idea what he brings to the table), Greg Olsen can pile up stats, Smith should be a HOFer, and Lafell is emerging as a more-than-passable number 2. All that AND Cam Newton too? So how is it that this crop can't even score a touchdown. Nuts to "they can't convert on 4th and 1." It's inconceivable that this offense would even BE 4th and 1!

I agree with almost everything said. Except I still believe in D-Will. J-Stew is probably better but a lot of his success is that he usually runs with a lead block where as D-Will mostly runs draws and pitches
Haven't noticed this. I mostly noticed option option option.
Edit: Then again, this Panther season has led me to excessive drinking by mid 1st quarter.
