Yea i think so isn't that why he was drafted for????

He has the size, power, athleticism and football instincts (according to Gettleman) to come in make a impact.

Why do you think the panthers who desperately need a RG would overreach in the draft and pickup a D-II prospect if there wasn't any upside to him?

I know he hasn't played a snap yet but you can't also discredit him until he plays a snap in the NFL & fails.

And Jimmy was drafted to be our franchise qb. What's your point? Your putting too much faith into one man that has done nothing to warrant it.

Yea but jimmy played football and failed where as Kugbila has yet to pay a season of NFL.....  

 

We don't have problems at LT, LG , & C ....RT is serviceable  but yea one man can make a impact when RG was the weakest link the OL

I just broke down the ypc for you on the season it was indentical.....the RBs didn't run better. Myth. Saints game has caused people to distort things.

Double Trouble didn't get better. All that happened was they played NO. That is just a fact.

 

 

You keep on saying RO wasn't the problem but its the OL then why are the coaches reducing the RO and going back to traditional game and why didn't the new GM address the OL during the draft if it was the main problem in our running game?

That's the point we don't know why he didn't address the oline, or wr, or secondary. We doubled up on DTs

We do know why, he said it in many interviews that we have young players in roster who where not given playing time to show what they can do. Basically he felt like the talent on the roster was good enough for him not to address the O-line early in the draft process.

Double Trouble in 2012

First half of the season (7 games - excluded the Saints)

3.1 ypc, 2 TDs

2nd half of the season (7 games - excluded the 2nd Saints game)

3.2 ypc, 1 TD

Everyone keeps saying getting away from the read and going traditional allowed them to thrive last year on the ground and that will makeup for our bad OL......but going traditional didn't do much if anything.

Read option was NOT our problem. Bad OL play was....RBs didn't do better when we got away from it. They just played the Saints....and they ran good against them early in the year as well




We're in trouble then.......fuck!

Bc you gotta try something....

If you look at non Saints game....Double Trouble had indentical production first half vs second half. Same carries, same ypc.

Why didn't DG address OL? Limited resources. Limited picks. Good OL are also expensive and he probably figures odds favor him rebuilding the offense entirely next year with a new staff....so outside of cheap band aids doing anything for the O would be digging a hole

Resources where limited but he could have picked up a OL in the 2nd round instead of picking up Short. He was pleased with the talent we have at OL.

 

How about a $50 bet that the OL improves and RB production goes up this year?
