Gucci Mane

6 weeks to go - My Thoughts/Suggestions

13 posts in this topic

No this isnt a cry for 8-8.

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?

I'm guessing Chud stays on the same desperately stubborn path of running Cam out of shotgun sets using the fail option as the base offense. I don't see why he would change now. Might as well let him finish this bush league experiment to the very end.

chud's not going to change what he does.

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

Chud is bad, no doubt about it.

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.

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.

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

How bad would every one feel if we started running a traditional offense and started looking good? Chud has made his bed, he can't go back now.

    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.  
    • Assholes should've never taken it away in the first place.  Me and a couple buddies had a hookup and were all hyped up and planned out going to it... then the NBA had to get all political and take it out on the city of Charlotte and the fans -- which made no fuging sense.  Seriously doubt we'll even get the chance to go again.
    • 6'6" 255.  He'll definitely have some good mentors with JP, CJ and the rest of the D-Line crew. 255 he'll need to put some weight on don't you think?
