Gross

Do any of you guys complaining about Gross actually watch the games?

The reason that I'm asking is because I watch all of the games on rewind afterwards to try and get a better idea of where the team could improve. Gross got beat twice against the Chiefs. Twice. Not once. Not thrice. Just twice. The first time Hali got by him was when Cam hit an open LaFell in the 3rd quarter for what should've been a TD had Jojo not dropped it. The second time? 4min left in the game. Cam avoided the sack (and Gross got away with an AWFUL hold) and got a 7yd scamper out of it.

Cam had more passes thrown high over his receivers head than Gross gave up pressures. So what exactly has Gross done to be looked at as a detriment to the team? Or are people hyperventilating because they don't understand how NFL contracts work?

Success on the Ground

With Jonathan Stewart out, DeAngelo Williams received his biggest workload since Week 2 with 12 carries and his second-highest snap count on the season. While he’s still not close to deserving of the contract the Panthers gave him, he made the most of his carries against the Chiefs, averaging 5.6 yards per carry and picking up four first downs. Williams wasn’t the only player who had success for the Panthers, though, as fellow back Mike Tolbert gained an average of 7.5 yards on the ground, albeit in just two attempts. The real star for the Panthers in the running game was quarterback Cam Newton (+3.0 rush). He gained 78 yards on seven attempts — good for a team-high 11.1 YPC — and was particularly adept running the read-option. More decisive than we’ve seen at times this season, Newton did a nice job forcing defensive hesitation and making explosive cuts up field. Credit the offensive line for doing its part as well, particularly LT Jordan Gross, who was excellent at the point of attack.

Gross is done

Cut Gross

Draft a LT in 2rd round or 4rd

Have B.Campbell and rookie fight for the job in Training camp

I'd cut Gross and take a Dallas Thomas in the 2nd in a heart beat.

At this point I feel gross is one of the old "we'll get em next week" group. He and gamble have given us their best and I love them for it but its time to part ways. Best of luck to them.

You don't have to draft a LT in the 1st to find one.ask KC whose handle CJ last weekend.

True now we just need to have a tragedy before every game so refs will let us get away with holding and everything else on every play

no call= no hold. there OL in no way is decent but this team made them look like world beaters.

Amini Silatolu has been our best OL three weeks running. Night and day, guess he had no choice either let Cam die or maul people because those two vets beside him are not getting it done

KCs answer: Our RIGHT tackle

As CJ lines up on the left, not right...

But hey, you are in good company, Peter King gave the KC LT his "best lineman of the week"-award for handling CJ all game. Never mind he didn´t face CJ and gave up a sack to Hardy.
