The problem with running out the clock last drive

16 posts in this topic

The cause of that stems from that pathetic group known as our OL.

Our healthy OL allowed our RBs to run for literally 0 total yards week 1. Scheme makes a bad OL even worse.

My favorite play call was the one where we were in shotgun and ran for an inch

Hey it's actually like a 4 yard gain when you run from the shotgun back to the line of scrimmage. That counts for something right?

Why no pitches, outside runs, screens?

I was begging for a screen during that last drive... likely would've been golden with the way Tampa was selling out on the run.

I don't think that any of those plays except the Slant pass to Smith and the 9 yard run by Cam, was designed to do anything but run out the clock. I'm confused about our playcalling in the most crucial times of our games.

Can't argue with you there, brother.

But, from a passing game standpoint, Cam's been running for his life all year, "healthy" OL or not.

Makes no sense. They know we're running so there's absolutely no reason to use that horseshtt read option. Soft, terrible play calling and an org ruining all the potentially decent young talent we have

    • I do think Kpassagnon is an interesting prospect that needs to be in the right situation to thrive. It just so happens that we have one of the best 6'7" defensive ends in the history of the NFL on a reunion tour with us in 2017 and maybe if need be, 2018 if he holds up.   Kpassagnon's attitude and work ethic is strong and tireless. His 3-cone and vert scare me for a defensive end, and that's not something you can teach. Being able to bend and explode off the snap to beat OL is not something that Peppers can show him, but maybe Peppers can show how to use athleticism to his advantage.  I can see him being just another Michael Johnson/Erik Armstead player or I could also see the environment here in Carolina benefiting him and he becomes a Carlos Dunlap kind of lanky DE that causes headaches along our DL. Kpassagnon's spider web looks amazing and awful all at the same time. I'd take him in this draft, but "where" is the big question.
