27. Carolina Panthers (21st)

We all get that Cam Newton is a special athlete, but it seems like his skill set has led to the Panthers creating an offense that fails to get the best out of some of their best (and most expensive) players. That never ends well.

the rest...

But Chud is a revolutionary OC who is going to change the game.

We should be 29 or 30

I don't see any reason to argue with that.

We have a terrible scheme. I don't know whether that's because our coaching staff thinks Cam can't run a standard offense or because he's just better at this....but it's clear that we are running a scheme that just isn't going to get it done. Until we fix that it doesn't matter what kind of effort individual players put forth.

I mean correct me if Im wrong but it seemed to me last year we ran a pro style offense with a couple of sprinkles of the option and whatnot. We were ranked top 10 in offense.

I guess we got too cute and the saying If it aint broke don't fix it applies to this offense this season.

i don't see how we're above oakland even. they at least have a win over a quality team.

We've been shitty for sure but we are actually one play away in back to back games from being 3-2 instead of 1-4.

Look at that. Panthers and their moral victories!

    • You do realize no one wanted RyanCare/ObamaCare Lite to pass, right? If anything, the media and democrats has made themselves absolute fools lately. STILL no evidence Trump colluded with Russia whatsoever, which is quite the funny irony in this whole conspiracy. Trump inherited a mess. Hard to fix this mess when you got crybaby globalists and dems everywhere.    
    • I hate this DG analogy so much.  It only makes sense in the context of an efficient market where teams are rational, have perfect information, and scouts are always right about players.  But we have ample evidence that is not the case.  Sometimes, talented players just don't work out.  Injuries derail careers.  Teams make oddball picks.  Sometimes, you are just wrong about a player (see Ealy, Kony). I like him a lot, but DG's habit of always trading up / never trading down may ultimately be his downfall in CAR.  It results in a lack of depth across the roster and it makes your roster very vulnerable to i) injuries (see 2015 vs. 2016) and ii) missing on evals.  If we missed on Funchess (jury still out), that hurts - but missing on Funchess when you traded multiple picks to get him compounds the issue. Trading up and trading down are both valid strategies - but I'd suggest balancing the two strategies would improve your chances of long-term success.
