some highlights

Fast forward to 2011, when a lockout-shortened offseason hindered the installation of an offense. Chudzinski, back in the coordinator saddle again following a two-year stint as tight ends coach in San Diego, took a raw rookie quarterback and rewrote the NFL’s record books with an offense predicated on a two-TE downhill running attack featuring the top backfield tandem in the league. The majority of the time, Cam Newton operated from under center with only a few designated shotgun snaps coming primarily near the goal line. Pass reads were kept very simple, set up by play-action, where the quarterback needed to read only half the field, high to low, and Newton was very effective rolling outside the pocket. Chudzinski transformed one of the worst NFL offenses into a top-10 unit, and Newton earned Rookie of the Year honors.


Instead of sticking with what worked, the Panthers moved to operating heavily out of the shotgun and incorporating a read, dive-option offense that has proven not to work at the NFL level


nstead of lining up with a powerfully built offensive line and hitting defenses in the mouth the way GM Marty Hurney built the team and owner Jerry Richardson prefers his brand of football, the Panthers have gone to a finesse style, in which the line is often set in a two-point stance when running the ball. Newton, who is taking more hits than ever, is being asked to run a college running attack coupled with a pro passing game that no NFL quarterback is capable of mastering, even if their last name is Manning.


Not only has the quarterback woefully underperformed given the unrealistic, foolish expectations being asked of him, the running game largely has been underutilized


Great coaches find ways to tailor their schemes to the strengths of their talent, creating plays that maximize what they do best. For the Panthers to find success the second half of the season and Superman to find his lost cape, they need to simplify their approach and go back to what worked a year ago.

Everyone else sees it (mostly), why don't Rivera and Chud?

Can't believe this. Same dude that absolutely destroyed Cam is now taking up for him? You know it's gotten bad if this is happening.

He's not quite right about the shotgun stuff though.

While it's true that we run an insane percentage of our plays out of the gun (around 80% ytd), we used the gun a lot last year too. I would guess 2011 came in at about 55 to 60% shotgun plays.

Fox's time had come to an end in Carolina. He needed a fresh start somewhere and he got his chance at that in Denver. It is what it is on that one. Rivera just clearly was not a good choice for transition. We needed a Cowher type coach regardless of exactly who it wound up being. Definitely not a "let's wait and see how it goes" type of coach.

We would be more effective using the four most basic plays in football alone, than what we're doing now.

Wake the fug up Chud.

P.S.
Bill Cowher.
That is all

I don't understand the love for Cowher. He lives in NC, so what?

Right his residency is what is important, and not the fact that he is a winner and a good HC.

What would this season look like if Chud stuck with the 2 TE sets and a pro-style based offense?

Me before: F*** NAWROCKI! RACIST! HATER!

Me after: Nawrocki definitely knows what he's talking about. Happy to see an informed and objective opinion explaining what the real problem is. Go Cam! Go Panthers!

But in all seriousness, he's right on this. I don't know how many times I've said it, but I'm amazed that Chud is still employed... To keep doing what he's doing and to continue to handcuff Cam instead of complementing his strengths with the calls and encouraging his development, he hinders him and impedes his growth and the offense. All while using the win/loss result as a sacrificial lamb.
