With that said, they have opted out of using an extra TE that worked so well last year.


that's because they don't have an extra te.

I was so happy last year that we finally had an OC and HC that realized TEs could be used more than just as another offensive tackle to help block for running and passing plays.

Somethings must be in the water at Panther facilities because after one season they already went full dumb fug on us.

The read option may limit a runningbacks options but its added to the QBs responsibility to make the right read/option..

This is huge. Not so much Shockey himself but what the 2 TE set allowed.

Video is at the top of this article, take a look, they also talk about Keek and the 30 yards deep safeties:

Baldy is on point and illustrates it so well. DeAngelo essentially doesn't get to use his vision anymore and Cam is the one deciding where he goes.

It doesn't help anyone. Cam's rhythm is bad, the runningbacks don't get to run and the offensive line is blocking for runs that go opposite directions. The option has to fool defenses. Why not just run them over?

Yes !!!!
It's killing Cam and the receivers also. Killing everyone on the offense, not just the backs.

Yes. There's a reason why Williams and Stewart had more success under John Fox.

If Derek Anderson was our starting QB, we would be 5-1 at the least. That is how much I think of this read option offense.

Read Option worked last year. Short TC and defenses werent used to it. Its 2012 and we are trying to do the same damn thing knowing defenses have adjusted. But yet we keep the same play calling and expect it to work. It has killed our offense and I think it killed DWILL and JSTEWS careers if they continue to stay in carolina. This team could be 5-1 right now if we would run a regular offense and allow DWILL to cut back if he wanted to. I think we need to keep both backs and get rid of the read option and we can actually play good.
