Game Grades: Panthers at Bears

Recommended Posts

I hear people everywhere going "the coaches came in with a great gameplan" and giving them a lot of credit. They made some changes under duress after Hurney was used to send a message to them that noone is safe then they poo the bed in the game when it mattered.

Here's all we need to know about our coaching staff. We have lost games this year by: 6, 2, 4, 5, and 1. Consistently losing close games is indisputably a coaching problem. A well coached team finds a way to win some of those games. A poorly coached team finds a way to lose them. The proof, as they say, is in the pudding.

I would like to take this further and say, there was nothing special about their gameplan, particularly offensively. Everybody in their grandmama could see the read option offense was garbage. Any plan that leaves that out is a goldmine. Of course we will look better without it. Yesterday only further proves we have talent on this team that can go up against the big dogs in the league, but this staff is holding that back. Even the players are voicing their opinions on this matter.

Funnily enough this is an even further indictment against this coaching staff. If they had even a semblance of control / respect in that locker room players would not be making the statements they are.

Is there a grade below F that we can give them?

winning teams find a way to do it every week regardless of how the odds may be stacked against them. losing teams find a way to lose regardless of how well they perform.

this is a losing team and the coaching staff isn't making it any better.

i'd like to know how many of those games we've lost this year were games that we had the lead in the 2nd half or even in the 4th quarter.

an F that's followed by "ired" instead of "ail".

If we had a competent staff, I bet you this team would be at least 5-2. I can say this because of the stupid read option offense we ran until it got someone fired. I wasn't surprised at all we were beating the Bears for most of the game yesterday, because I know the kind of talent we got on this team. The team didn't find a way to lose, the coaches did. In fact, if the players started rebelling against some of the calls this staff put in, we would probably end the season with at least 7 wins.

I keep checking the internet to see if Rivera has been fired. Since the gods answered my prayers about Hurney....

the staff came in with a great game plan and the players excuted it.

we took away their biggest weapon....Hester.

this game came down to a couple plays that didn't go our way.

if there is no shanked punt or a smitty slip........... we arn't even having this discussion.

I was thinking about this today, and I pretty much agree. Several big mistakes at the end, and the only one I really can pin on the coaching staff was that soft zone on defense. Had there been 45 seconds left, that defense makes sense. But with over 2 minutes, even our offense could have gotten into fg position with that amount of time.
