The Panthers are tied for 7th in the NFL in yards per offensive play, gaining a very nice 5.8 yards a snap.

They are 28th in the NFL in total offense, though.

It is a very remarkable disparity. Shocking, actually.

It would be almost impossible to accomplish except for one reason: inability to convert on 3rd down.
The Panthers are dead last in the NFL in Total First Downs

Now, let the chorus of "Chud's a Moron" and "Rivera's an idiot" and "meaningless stat" begin.

There is a problem, though.

The reality is that the majority of 3rd down conversions in the NFL are those of between 3-7 yards.

These are manageable distances. Passing situations in the NFL, for sure, but manageable.

How is the Panthers' passing offense doing in those situations?

They are completing 43% of their passing attempts. Dead last in the NFL.

3rd and 3-7 is not rocket science territory, folks. You can either pass, screen or draw, but ultimately, your QB has got to be able to stand in the pocket and make a play...and probably make a short to medium throw into a tight window. If he can't do it consistantly, or refuses to try by forcing the ball downfield, you are going to be in trouble. And the Panthers are in big trouble unless this changes.

It doesn't hold water.

Remember, your team is one of the best in the NFL in yards per offensive play. If the offensive line was as atrocious as you suggest, this would not, could not happen.

I might also bring up the fact that the "atrocious offensive line" is actually ranked 7th in the NFC. Not great, but not horrible either.

We're not ranked 7th in nothing by a mile.

30th in run blocking and 26th in pass pro now, so getting worse.

Keep in mind that the OP is of the opinion that coaching is fine. i.e. he's reading stats, not watching games.

I got my number from the espn offensive line stats. If you like that site for your stats, well and good. It doesn't change anything regardless.

Umm whatever bro, lol. Our offensive line horrible. Why do you think we keep shuffling it around? Kalil is gone, Byers is a center playing guard. And Amini is struggling as a rookie.

boom or bust offense. Not sustainable. You have to run the ball well to keep the ball.
