I think you're right honestly, and this not enough weapons is merely an excuse.  Of course we could be better on the outside.  What was one of the first offseason moves we did after drafting Cam?  Getting Olsen.  Lafell's numbers havent been great but he didnt get a ton of passes to him and he usually catches everything.  Cam usually targets Smith or Olsen and rightfully so.  We do have two very good rb's and we saw a lot more screens in the second half of the season last year and did very well with them.  I think it is more about strategy and execution, rather than lack of weapons that has held this team back.  Oh by the way, with "minimal" or "no weapons," this team still finished #5 offense in 11 and top 15 last year.

 

And Panthers were top 5-8 in yards per play/snap. Cam was top 3 in YPA, and I think #1 in YPC. 

 

The problem was; they just didn't get off enough snaps/plays during 2012. 

 

Hopefully, both the offense and defense, will remedy this problem in 2013?

That is true, there were times when the defense couldnt get off the field and times we had a couple consecutive 3-and-outs.

actually didnt we sign Shockey before Olsen?

dont know, doesnt really matter.  I meant significant first thing.... not that Shockey wasnt any good, but Olsen is a legit #1 TE whereas Shockey was a #2 at that point in his career.

Yup Yup. 

 

Especially, in the first half of the season, and even the second. The defenses, "bend but don't break" defense, bent too much/too long, and eventually broke (TD) way to often; robbing the offense of TOP. Lol
