Well, this season is a wrap.

Oh my goodness, someone give you an OC job...You are the very first person to ever think of that.

Defenses have this little trick called "disguising" they like to do, and we apparently can't decipher them. Cam is a statue in the pocket when he clearly has one side or the other to roll out to to give himself space, but he just zeros in on a receiver and becomes blind to his immediate area.

My problem with this season is we are not giving Cam the proper supporting cast [players and coaches] to help him grow into an NFL quarterback. I hope we dont stunt his growth forever.

The concept is simple yet I see week after week of people ignoring this simple yet effective philosophy.

Sure defensive's disguise there looks but you can still see base personnel. ie 4-3, 3-4, Nickle, Dime, ect and can also see how many people are in the box.

One of the problems is we are getting to the line to late and not having alot of time to analize the D and make needed adjustments. We need to let the clock drop pretty far to where the D has to commit to one of the other.

I agree about Cams pocket presence. It is very bad. Although to his credit seems like the pocket is crashing alot in the middle and he doesnt have much of a pocket to step into most of the time.

Either way he has to get the ball out quicker.

Yea, but thats the easy part. Its easy to tell their personnel, and even whether or not its man or zone by motioning [which we rarely do]. The problem lies with blitz pick up and Cams ability to escape the pressure. What else i dont get is they sent alot of pressure down the middle, yet all of our screen plays are to the outside. We could have gotten plenty of yards off of our RB's releasing into the middle of the field and sitting where the hole is, rather than out towards the flats.

Well, they can disguise zone even when motioning a man. Its a bit more complicated than that.

While our line play has been poor. I think the bigger problem is the offensive coaching & philosophy.

We need a lot more short timing routes. When the defense adjust to that, then we can try to hit them deep. Cam is holding onto the ball way to long.

If everything is covered on a 3 step drop and Cam feels the slightest pressure he needs to tuck it and get some positive yardage.

Its hard to have "pocket presence" When you have an all pro Gate playing right tackle! Von Miller didn't even have to put any type of move on anybody because none of the clowns that lined up at right tackle had any idea how to block him!

My suggestion is for the Panthers to use the number one pick on the best offensice tackle in the draft with the idea of putting him at LT and moving Gross to RT.

i think the interior oline pocket is a bigger issue.

there is hardly no pocket to even step into

We're not cutting our entire roster this offseason. Seeing the young talent develop is still interesting.

I concur. I'm passed the point of indifference. I just want to see them get better and develop. I want them to learn to finish games, learn how to come back from a deficit, how to maintain a lead. How to create a momentum shift. So far the defense has gotten it. The offense and special teams? Ehh...
