To be fair to #89, while most people here thinks he gets too many targets, I disagree and think he should be getting more than what he is getting so far.

Calvin Johnson has 38 receptions on 66 targets (8th in the league)

Steve Smith has 28 receptions on 47 targets (37th in the league)

Calvin is 5th in receiving yard (592) while Smith is 14th (471).

Chud (and Cam) needs to target Smith more often.

The only two receivers who get less targets than Smith in the top 20 in yards is Decker and Thomas and that is because they take targets away from each other.

Throw #89 the damn ball.

Our possession time is literally 1 second away from being the worst in the league (baltimore). Smith is obviously going to get fewer targets when we run fewer offensive plays. A meaningful comparison must account for this.

gawd suh's sack of cutler was brutal.

Reminded me of the time Jim McMahon got body slammed by Green Bay.

I live in the Detroit area and the Lions are my 2nd team (yeah, tough year for me) so maybe i'm just biased... but i would KILL to have a coach like Schwartz in Carolina. I love his emotion and passion and his relationship with his players, sure beats Rivera'a blank expressions on the sideline.

Point of the thread was to look at two big disappointments in the league. Before the season, nobody would have predicted the lack of wins from these two clubs.

Then just a couple of things like first pick in the draft QB's and such. No big epiphany or anything. Just lamenting along with Michiganders.

Lions - likely to at least finish 9-7

Panthers - will be lucky to win 6 games (you know it won't happen)
