Vanilla Offense in Preseason

49 posts in this topic

I will reserve any opinions until the rubber hits the road. Can they pull their collective heads out of arz in two weeks? I don't know why they are not executing , is it talent? Is it coaching? Vanilla preseason mean nothing games? We will know sept 8 what the truth is, until then its all speculation on what they are going to be.

Lack of talent on the O line and lack of talented depth. Also lack of talent in the secondary.

..so if something is vanilla execution does not matter ?

What will the excuse be in week 1, 2, 12?

Rest assured, there will be one.

So what is the difference between other teams who are running vanilla game-plans and having success vs the Panthers who are also running the same vanilla plays and are doing jack-squat.

They have the talent to successfully run their basic plays?

And, a lot of teams basic stuff is more aggressive in nature....and that helps them a lot in preseason ball

If you don't like the idea of doing more player evaluation then scheme analysis in the preseason then pick another team to root for.

 

This is something Gettelmen will want no matter who is coach.

The offense reminds me of the one we saw in the 2010 preseason, and so do the comments about it.  The difference now is that we have Cam Newton instead of Matt Moore, which is a serious upgrade.  We also have Mike Shula instead of Jeff Davidson, which may or may not be...

Cam Newton calls its “bread and butter” plays and apparently leaving out the jelly.

 

Who eats butter and jelly on their bread?

Pretty much everyone who has ever eaten breakfast.

The offense we've seen in the preseason is not a good example of what we'll see in the regular season imo. Here is my guess as to what our offense will look like in the regular season. Remember last season? Increase the number of read option runs and designed QB runs, and throw in a lot of screen plays to our new scat back, and mix in some play action with deep passes. RR is not insane, he's not going to run the garbage we're seeing this preseason. If he does then expect RR and the rest of the coaching staff to be fired after we have a losing season. RR is going to use Cams legs to try and keep his job, and we'd all do the same.

    • Same people defending Hillary a few months ago are now drawing the conclusion that Flynn... and by association Trump... must be guilty of something because Flynn is getting immunity from the FBI. Works both ways. For the record... IMHO both Hillary and Trump are crooks.  If justice in this nation were truly blind these two politicians and their henchmen would be doing a long stretch in prison by now.
    • Slot receivers don't exist in 2 TE sets unless we're lining a TE on the outside which I haven't seen much out of the currently constructed Panthers. Maybe McCaffrey if he were to be split out wide but the Panthers usually keep a RB with Cam in-case Cam needs the extra protection and audibles the RB to block.  The Panthers would be best suited pairing KB with a speedster such as Charles Johnson, who's adept at running deep routes. Keep Howard and possible the RB (if not blocking) on short routes, KB on working the intermediate routes, Olsen running intermediate/deep routes, and Johnson running deep routes. That way Cam has a receiver on every level. All of this assumes Shula constructs a properly worked passing attack. 
    • Yes, that is correct. My point being Clinton was impeached and stayed in office. Almost everyone calling for impeachment of Trump thinks it means to remove him from office. He would have to be impeached and then found guilty to do that. The impeachment alone does not remove him. And my original point, no one was bringing up the electoral college back then. It makes no sense. Because the popular would surely rid us of corrupt politicians, right?
