6 weeks to go - My Thoughts/Suggestions
Posted 19 November 2012 - 03:38 PM
I have been thinking a lot about our situation and how we can best improve and get ourselves in position to be successful in the offseason and next season.
With all the talk about putting Cam in more traditional QB sets, and giving the RB's the touches they need to get a rhythm, why not start now? I know Chud doesn't give two shits about our future anymore since he knows hes gone, but we have nothing to lose at this point in the season and now would be a good time to start mixing things up and trying different things with Cam. If we start lining up more under center and possibly having more I-tights and dual tight sets, we not only would be setting Cam up for growth as a QB, we also get our highly paid RB's the formation/plays they deserve. Also, the more and more we begin to shift towards this new offensive philosophy, the less prepared the opposite DC will be.
If it becomes successful, we can gain some momentum heading into the offseason, and chuds resume slightly improves so he might be able to save his NFL career [just not with the panthers]. With the new GM likely to put the coaching in place that will not run the read-option as much, i wish JR would make an executive order to start transforming the offense slowly towards the pro-style.
what are yalls thoughts?

read option on running downs.
on passing plays send everyone out on deep routes that just happen to take 4 seconds to develop.
this is chud's recipe for successfully destroying a great offense

However, Cam under center is not the answer currently. This o-line is pathetic. Cam is getting pressured out of the gun almost immediately and that is without him even having to take a drop. Imagine him under center and having to complete a five step drop. The defensive ends would hit him before he reached the fourth step.
Playcalling is a result of how bad this line is and coupled with the fact that Chud still believes the read option is suprising the defense and that his QB can accurately read the defensive end crashing down.

Enjoy the poo pie that is the 2012 Carolina Panther offense. It won't change until next season.

I agree it doesnt make too much sense especially when you consider the big head that is chud. but if he changed something and it worked, he might get a phone call or two from other teams in the offseason instead of from the unemployment office
What kind of logic is there in Chud changing now that he's a lame duck? After game three would have been logical but at this point it makes no sense to try anything different.

I honestly think half the problem with the o-line is they have lost all confidence in the coaches and the scheme. A lot of o-line play is attitude, so if they aren't buying in, it's reflected in their play. Yeah, I know, they are all professionals and have to buck up and all that stuff, but confidence in coaching is very important to performance on the field.
