Chud is optimistic about the offense per Panthers.com

24 posts in this topic

Panthers.com interviewing Rob Chudzinski about the future of the offense is another one of those "subtle hints" that make me wonder.

i'm not wondering. i'm pretty confident that rivera will be back. i'll be shocked if he isn't. i may not think it's for the best, but i still think it's going to happen and by the time TC gets around i'll probably be on the bandwagon, but this time around i'm going to be a bit more skeptical of rivera and chud because i don't trust him or chud to continue what they've done the end of each year. they seem like a december only team and i can't see getting into the playoffs with that.

To me, it's an insult for offensive coaches to talk about Cam's sophomore slump. I want a reporter to ask Chud about his sophomore slump, as playcalling was the primary problem with the offense early in the year.

Why this guy gets a pass with the local media is beyond me. Not talking about this piece obviously as it's an in-house production, but how often have we heard Person or any other reporter call Rivera/Chud on the carpet over their mismanagement of the first half of the year?

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.

Last offseason, we were all begging for Chud to stay in Carolina, and not take a Head Coach job elsewhere. Now most fans want Chud run out of town? I am one of the few that believes Chud has what it takes to be a very good OC. We have seen it with his ability to adapt, his ability to try to things, and creativity. He is getting better at play calling, and Cam is getting better at executing. I am very optimistic for 2013 season and think it will be the best season in Panthers franchise history from an offensive standpoint. Cam will put it all together, and make Chud look like the genius that he is.

I think The Chud is a great OC. He got a little carried away with his "greatness" at the beginning of the season. Actually, I think Chuds creativity was screwing us over early this year. When he got back to what he does, we won.

The Chud is learning, same as MickeyD on Defense. Rivera on the other hand.......... Boo Hiss.......

I am starting to come around to the idea of giving them one more year.

One thing that pissed me off this year....everyone was giving the Redskins credit for their amazing new revolutionary offense. We did that and more last year. Perhaps other teams adjusted and Cam was not as mature as he had to be yet with the little things (i.e. decision making) so we took a step back. But the offense was very good for the second half of the season (minus the KC game) and if we can get that all year with a better offensive and defensive line, we could see the playoffs.

I will be optimistic about our offence - if we get a new OC

Chudzinski is the weak link in our offence

Hopefully Chud learned that you would need some kind of mutant lineman to run the option more then once a drive. it takes way to long to develop(as long as a pass play) and the defense can be in the backfield before the read is even made. Faster action if they would have went with pistol reads.

Chud screwed up a lot early this season but overall I like what I have seen from him and think he has learned his lesson. The last thing we need is to bring in someone new that will try and get cute while learning what they have with Cam, it would be this year all over again.

Wonder how Washington's offense is going to look when the other teams have had an offseason to watch film on it.
