Yes, we are losing because we aren't playing Sherrod Martin and Joe Adams.

I think Martin does a much better job against Roddy White than Naka, if only for the first play of their game winning drive. That was a punt pass that should at the very least been knocked down. Martin makes that play easily.

So, you're satisfied with Armanti, Pilares and Munnerlyn at returns? I think Holliday and Hester showed us the importance of having a legitimate threat at returner can do for you. Holliday ran one back, but Hester gave Chicago great field position all day while barely touching the ball.

And I don't care how you spin it, Gettis is a major upgrade over Murphy. I think he forces defenses to at least account for him because of his speed. That will allow more one on one coverages for Smitty. And the more of that you see, the better chance this team has of winning.

But maybe you're right. maybe we don't win any more games. But at the very least, we develop talent that can contribute in the near future in positions of need.

Question: when Hester and Holliday are on the field making returns are they the only guys on the field? Let me guess, you hadn't thought about the fact that special teams play is a team thing-- multiple guys on the field making blocks and executing a plan.

Another question: When was the last time you saw Gettis play? As poor as the team has played do you think the coaches are keeping Gettis out to be stubborn or because they don't get it like you do? My guess is that he'll be in when he is ready and that means physically, as well as up to speed with the offense--- what there is of it.

So yes ST is hurting, the point being made is Pilaris has a better return avg on K's in the last 2 seasons since taking over than AE does in 3 seasons. and even Captain is doing better than AE in P's which really is not saying much. Just sick of people trying to put AE on a pedestal like he’s the second coming of Deion Sanders.

AS far as gettis, I agree. I want to see him back as much as the next person. Maybe hes an upgrade maybe hes not, but dont risk putting him out there if hes not 100% and if hes not up to par with the lack offense.

Where do you get these fantasy statistics and show me one post where somebody puts AE on a pedestal.

So with that logic, Chicago is the only team Hester would have had success with. So, you don't think Hester would improve our return units? And I would really hesitate to say that Denver's return team blocking is great. There were at least 4-5 Panthers that had a real chance to tackle Holliday on his TD, but they couldn't. I realize the significance of blockers, but to discount the actual returner is not the correct answer. Adrian Peterson is who he is because of his o-line too I guess. My point is blocking will get you to a stage in the defense/coverage team, then it's the ball carriers job to maximize what's given.

You're right, I don't know if Gettis is fully recovered or not. But I do know that he played last Sunday. If he wasn't ready at the start of the game, then he didn't all of a sudden heal or learn the offense at the end of it. And wasn't there a recent post about multiple players on the team saying he was the fastest WR?

yep.

who he has in his doghouse has a nominal effect on the outcome of the games or the overall record.

Normally I'd agree with you. But if Martin is in the game at the end of ATL, I feel very confident saying the Panthers get the win.

In a season where you're losing by less than a TD, all it takes is one big reception or TD to change the tide of the game.

But ultimately, I agree, playcalling has been our biggest problem all season - offensively and defensively.

So many things wrong with Rivera as a HC(including this dighouse BS) it's

ridiculous, I mean why Rivera's pussy sh*tshow against the bears and squibbing to Hester everytime doesn't get more attention here and in the media is beyond me... That's like something a huddler would jokingly suggest, but he actually did.. No wonder why we lose by less than a TD every game.. Exposed his true ineptitude as a coach right there.. #endrant

No wonder why this clown coudn't get a Head Coaching job at all those other places he tried

Just keep him on Defense that's what he's good at.

I have to say, the defense is tackling much better over the last couple of games. Not sure if it's something Rivera did, or if it's just having Kuechly in the middle and Norman/Thomas on the outsides. But every one has the bug, except for Naka and the occasional Captain whifs of course.
