Don't field goals count as points against our D?

How does field position and terrible offense factor?

I could take the time to tell you how we fared the last 4 weeks but I can easily find where we rank over the last 3 games and that is 3rd in the NFL at 286.3 ypg

Behind Pitt at 207.3 and San Fran at 286.0


Thanks.

I like the company...

17th in PPG, which is what matters. Need to get into the top 15 in that stat - well on our way if we continue our recent defensive surge though.

You welcome, but I am also a big supporter of Cam so you may not like my company too much. But I do think our defensive play the last several games is important and relevant.

Not impressed by the D's PPG. They're not a San Fran, or Chicago, or even Atlanta yet that can go out there and win games on their own despite what their QB does. As long as these guys learn how to close out games and stop wetting the bed against any ole QB, Im happy.

I'm impressed... we've been in every game, except the Giants in week 3. The only problem has been not stopping teams at crucial times.

I think even with PPG you have to look into that number... Some points given up are off of offensive turnovers... Some points are good points where the Defense started in scoring position but held the opponent to 3 on a short field.

Overall, the eye test tells me our defense has been much much improved over the last few weeks and are a legit unit in the NFL.

To paraphrase what KT is saying, we were #5 in offense last year but anti-Cam guys said that the O couldn't close out games so it didn't matter. This year it is vice versa.

What matters to me is wins. That's just me though.

The "company" I was refering to was Pitts and SF...

but I am sure you are a really nice guy.

I am a big supporter of whoever is the QB of the Panthers.

But if they play like sh*t, I will not hesitate to point it out...

I'm willing to bet having the same starters back every week, and not half the D on IR.

I don't have a big problem with McDermott.

I think after watching Jimmy Clausen two seasons ago I have a pretty good handle on what a QB playing like poo looks like. And Cam isn't playing like poo. He isn't setting the world on fire either though.

Read zone option

Watch the play elevate moving back to the O from a year ago
