That's what I get from that.

There is a funk on this team. They haven't broken through it, especially on offense. They really did well last week racking up 400 yards on road against the top defense. Except they didn't finish drives: they were 25% in the redzone.
Forget Rivera not going for it. They could've done better in the redzone and it wouldn't have ever mattered that he chose to hail marry. For all we know, this could've been a gamble Rivera took to break this team out of it. Something big to pump them up for the first time in months. Cam didn't really make that choice look smart. I don't believe Rivera is that smart but damn, that might have been a jumpstart to wake them up.
This teams moto needs to be: "Make big plays and finish them"
This is why I'd prefer to keep DeAngelo. He's a legitimate home run threat. Stewart needs early carries and he can receive as well. I like DeAngelo against tired defenses better.

I can't disagree. ThE team hasn't quit yet and it's a credit to their dedication. Most of the team have played hard every game even though there have been some chokes and unlucky breaks.
I agree. The effort is there. It is the results that have been so dissappointing. No one saw the implosion that is our Offense coming.
Last week we learned that the two TE set is still vialble. Hartstock and Barny are not world beaters, but they can at least help keep the D honest.
If, if, if, we can ever stop shooting ourselves in the foot. We just may be a pretty good football team.

We looked way more efficient vs Chicago (except for the red zone)

I guarantee you could cut Craft in half at the waist and the top half of his body would still weigh more than most normal people.

Somehow this organization needs to figure out how to start out strong at the begining of the season.
Seems like more often than not, the Panthers only get it together once the season is half over.
