Not a bad article.This, to me, is reason for excitement:
Carolina finished 12th in total yards (360.7 per game) and 18th in scoring (22.3) despite the facts that only two teams had fewer possessions and only seven had worse average starting field position.The Panthers ranked fifth in yards per play (5.8), sixth in third down conversion percentage (43%) and tied for eighth in red zone touchdown efficiency (58.7%).
Considering how bad the offense looked at the beginning of the year, it seems like adjustments were made to fix it and turn things around. Chud got a pretty bad rap this season - and rightfully so - the offense looked awful against seattle and new york, but maybe things are improving. Also means that Rivera better get us to the playoffs next year.
Still rather have Norv Turner.
