You have to look at both... The offense was in the red zone 4 times and only got 1 touchdown... the 1 touchdown they did score came off of a defensive turnover that put the offense in the redzone somewhere around the 15 yard line.

With all the 3 and outs forced today the defense was winning the field position battle. At some point you need to expect your offense to give you touchdowns instead of settling for field goals.


I agree but at some point you got to tip your hat to the other team they get paid to play as well look we all want this team to be great Im just not with the bashing one player after every loss. Cam is our quarterback and the type of criticism he gets from people claiming to be panther fans is ridiculous.

I don't see where I bashed Cam.... I even said in the other thread Cam had a decent game, not great and not terrible.

However if we were grading the units overall, Based on the totality of the entire game I felt overall the defense was somewhat better than the offense and should not be blamed for the loss. We can agree to disagree, but after a game like this I don't put it on the defense.

Sorry wasnt speaking about you just saying people in general your right I do think the defense play well enough to win the game but I think the offense did as well so who do you blame

If people want to say Cam sucks or he can't get it done, then neither can Eli. Eli is 9/23 with an interception right now. If we're a "what have you done for me lately" league, well, this minute, Eli is garbage.



No? Not fair? Oh, he won two super bowls so all is forgiven? OK, cool story. Thanks.

That is how OUR OWN FANS treat Cam. Get a hold of yourselves, people.

Cam played very well today. All QB's throw picks, all have thrown a pick when a reciever slips - thats part of the game. Overall, I was quite happy to see the offense actually "play" today. We drove the length of the field several times - we did not have many 3/outs. Yes, there are points left on the field by scoring FG's instead of TD's. I'm not willing to throw the offense under the bus for that - it was not for lack of trying. Yes, some were drops, some were bad plays - but I feel like some people here forget that the other team gets paid to play too. Overall - this was the best, most consistent offense we have seen since the NO game.

The D played lights out for 58 minutes - the score won't show it, but they have not allowed more than 20 pts in the last 3 games. They were asked to play short fields all day and held up pretty well - till the prevent defense was called.

Todays loss was not on any one player, any one play.

It was a collection of things - and some things lead to other issues.

Not attempting FG @ half - might have made a difference, might not - but, had Oleson charged Cams pass (previous possession) - it's not INT and we have plenty time to get closer or score TD.
Murphy drops pass in endzone? Smitty drops pass in endzone? Smitty doesn't slip on timed route? Punter kicks more than 6 yds. People mad cause we burned TO's - but the 12 man on the field saved us 5 yds - which ended up being the difference in Goulds missed FG (would have been inside the pylon if 5 yds closer).

I'm just saying that I for one don't think the team sucked today - but I do feel the coaching decisions leave alot to be desired. How can you let a team march down the field using the exact same play over and over and yet do nothing about it?


I agree with you... It seems that large number of members here seem to forget that football is a team game and everyone had to execute well at their position for the play to be a success, not to mention that the opposing team has quality players as well whose job is to disrupt the play. Its a pretty easy concept... Just seems that ppl want an individual to blame for why we lost the game.
