What exactly is the point of running a conservative offense?!?

I mean seriously what the hell. That's for a QB like Jimmy. We have Cam fuging Newton. Steve Smith on the side. Brandon "I catch when I wanna" Lafell. Our Backs our second to none. I just don't get it. Play to Cam's strength and spread it off. If I'm not mistaking conservative is what got Fox the door? And what Rivera said was the opposite he was going to do.

If you don't have anything intelligent to say, why would you add this to the conversation?

Conservative offenses rely on one very key thing that I think a lot of people miss.

 

Pain

 

The 4th qtr is not the same when youre a linebacker and youve been gettin hit by ruinning backs all day around 200 to 260 lbs moving faster than any other human being on this planet.

Did a coach say we were running a conservative offense?  I'm guessing it will be more conservative simply because Chud is gone.

 

Nothing wrong with balancing the load and not putting every little thing on Cam's shoulders.  Hopefully the days of three straight passing plays within 10 yards of the endzone is gone.

Lafell, catches everything, pretty much. Not sure why you diss him, if anything he is not able to get away from coverage at times.

What's the point? Balance, less pressure on the young QB, allowing more talented players to make plays forcing the defense to have a hard time guessing what's coming next...same thing that's always been said about West Coast systems. While Shula's scheme isn't a Norv Turner-like West Coast offense, it's definitely a variation of it. The power running game accompanied by the occassional read-option, and a nice play action passing game is scary if successful

I think too many people are confusing an allegedly more "conventional" offense, with a "Conservative" one. 

 

Big difference!

I said this in another thread.  If this is based on a few offseason comments and the first week of practice, then it is not accurate.  Here is why:

 

1. The comments over the spring were that the Panthers would run the ball more effectively.  That could mean "more often", but it does not mean that we will be conservative.  Conservative is running the ball on 3rd and 9 or dumping to the backs on pass plays.

 

2. The first week or so of camp is dedicated to building from the foundation.  The run game is usually the foundation.   Play action passes evolve from running plays--not the other way around.

Also....a balanced offense is not the same thing as a "conservative" one
