That's southern folks for ya. Very limited and selected memory. Statistics and trend is quite foreign to them.

If everyone was honest, they would admit to being extremely disappointed and somewhat concerned. If not, then they know nothing about football or are liars. It is the nature of the beast in football. Each fan thinks his team is playoff bound this time of year and so piss poor performaces show up in threads like this.

The lack of execution concerns me greatly.

Concern 1.
We all knew the OLine was going to be a weak link, we have talked about it ever since the draft. Not providing pass protection and not opening holes is going to haunt us in each game starting with the equally quick Seahawks.

Concern 2.
Lack of QB accuracy and decision making. None of our crew seems to be very accurate at this point and sometimes a dump off pass is wide open to a RB and we choose a 30 yd pass which is wildly inaccurate. Not sure if all this is the game plan or just bad QB decisions. But the lack of execution on whichever receiver is chosen is concerning.

Concern 3.
Defense did not look good against the quick mobile QB's. Set a statue up in the oppostion backfield and we seem to do well, but if a QB is mobile, includeing Foles?, we struggle.


Let's be honest, with only our O against our D for the last few weeks in Spartanburg, we can dream up all kinds of scenarios of great seasons and sacking other QB's and our guys scoring 40 per game. But, when the rubber meets the road is in the first half of the season when every team is playing hard with hopes of post season. There is when we can truly judge ourselves and the progress at each position.

Not gonna name any names cuz I don't want to Stir up the pot and anger the great one, but some of you guys are acting like first day fans, meaning this is your first day being a fan. It's kinda creepy how some people can claim fandom yet be completely critical of most aspects of the team, especially the most crucial aspect of the team, our QB who actually revolutionized the position by the end of his rookie season.

And I'm done being cryptic, CAPantherFan, your whole argument was an abomination before it even had a chance. The fact that you just used a sports talk radio station to back it up is laughable. No sane person can listen to the thousands of misinformed nutcases that call in, or worse, host those god awful shows.

Kurb, please don't ban me...

If we try to become a ground and pound team this is probably what we can expect from this offense.

Hopefully we still have a lot of packages including the read option left to install.

yes. the panthers are going to go 0-16. ron rivera will turn into a cyborg and blow up the stadium with lasers from his dick. charlotte will fall into a bottomless black hole and north carolina will literally explode into a greasy fireball of bojangles and ruined dreams. we are all going to die. prepare yourself.

Do people really do that? Seriously?

If I am in a bad mood and feel like being a dick I just do it.

They definitely didn't look good but it's hard to tell if that means anything since it's the preseason. The year that the Patriots went 16-0 they also went 0-4 during the preseason.

I think it is a valid concern if you are referring to the execution of Cams passing and the inabilitiy of our coaches to make game time adjustments.Cam is still a great QB but it was painfully obvious that his accuracy is still inconsistant,and he forces the ball to Smitty when others are open.I was hoping to see more adjustments from our coaching staff when presented with the Eagles up tempo offense

 

Having said that no the sky is not falling and yes it is only 1 preseason game that does not count

Watching Riviera coach is like watching this model on the catwalk.
