Why the New Offense?

25 posts in this topic

Personally I wish they would just can the option. Only let Cam run when it is a designed run for him or do playaction roll outs where if no one is open or about to be open, Cam runs.

Why has no reporter in the Charlotte media pressed Rivera for an answers to these basic questions?

1) Why was the one aspect of the Panthers (offense) that was successful last year so radically changed? (If it ain't broke, don't fix it.)

2) Why have you, Coach Rivera, yet to correct this painfully obvious mistake?

The sports media outlets in Charlotte seem to be among the most passive in the nation. Their lack of inquisitiveness when it comes to this major issue explains why we still don't know six games into the season why this change was made or why it has yet to be corrected.

And I believe the national media looks at what the local media has questioned to some degree. If the local media asked Cam or Rivera about the offense, they would likely get an interesting soundbite that the national media could play back. So I definitely agree the local media aren't doing their job, and entertaining the crusade against Cam across the nation.

The only logical explanation to me is that they don't think Cam can be a drop back passer. I don't believe that to be true myself, but I don't get to see what goes on in practice to evaluate that. Otherwise, they are taking what was successful last year from a small sample and assuming it can be used abundantly.

Nothing else could possibly make any sense, because these results can't support that this is an NFL system.

Okay then, isn't this guy on waivers? Why are we not signing him as i type? If Shockey was so pivotal then why are we letting him sit on his couch instead of signing him to, what i believe would not be a big contract? This coaching staff has lost their minds with the option and unfortunately it is the main reason as to why we are 1-5 instead of 4-2!

If Rivera wants to save his job he should sign Jeremy and get rid of the read option and run his horses and get back to the offense we had last year! Panthers staff, no need to pay me for fixing your offense... just get some wins!
