calling it now

 

offense is gonna have serious issues, anyone not named steve smith cant get open, lefell is a pretty bad #2 if not one of the worst in the league. 

 

Wr corps - i remember when devid gettleman said you dont trade a dollar for 3 dimes, well you got a whole bunch of dimes here outside of 89   Grade D+

 

RB's - D-Will looks done, as much as i like him i think his time is about up in the NFL. Stewart not healthy.  Grade C

 

O-line is old and overated, terrible depth, terrible talent overall really, amani is aweful and so is byron bell. why u people think otherwise i will never understand. Grade D

 

QB - Cam gonna be Cam. Grade A

 

Outside of Cam, Smith, and Olsen there is a huge lack of talent on offense

 

 

Defense

 

D-line  Amazing with good depth, beside fua. Grade A+

 

LB core  -  top 3 in the league if not the best, amazing depth. Grade A+

 

Safeties - turrible. Grade F

 

corners - average players, but these guys know how to abuse routes from the pressure cause by our d line. Grade C

No way 22 teams have a better offense than us in 2013, no way.  Everyone is entitled to their opinion, so there is mine.

Any offense with Cam Newton on it will not be bottom ten.

This is a bit of a kneejerk reaction to a series of preseason games.

 

There are concerns on both the offensive and defensive side of the ball, sure, but the team has not forgotten how to play offense in the offseason anymore than our entire coaching staff is suddenly not fit to coach a PeeWee team / has forgotten that there are plays other than running up the middle and non-PA passes in the playbook.

 

Things will return to median as the actual season starts.  Maybe the offense is slightly worse, or hampered by bad OL play.  Maybe that's offset by better D play, maybe it's not.  But an indictment like bottom 3rd in the league without a single regular season snap played is both premature and silly.

 

I don't expect us to be as good as we'd like to be but our offense certainly won't be as bad as you're predicting either.

Just legitimately curious, OP. Which offenses do you think will be worse than Carolina this year?

After one preseason with no game planning and vanilla play calling our offense is now bottom 10?

We need to implement an IQ test of some kind in order for individuals to be able to create threads.

I disagree... last year we where top 12 offense .... I believe we improved with the addition of FA and key players returning from injury. Cam progression alone improves the offense & the amount of turnovers the defense will generate will giving the O plenty of times to score............ I say we are top 5 offense & defense..... (11-5)

 

Key  Role players

OL- Wharton, Scott, Bell , Amini

WR- Ginn, Lafell, Hixon , Gettis

TE- Williams

RB- Tolbert, Barner

Lafell is NOT the worst #2 in the league that's just laughable.

DWill is not "done" his offensive line needs to do him better though.

Charles Godfrey is not turrible. The ? Is beside him though. Not an F in anyway.

Far too pessimistic a view of this team as a whole. Just like every year the perceived strength will not be as dominant as we think and our perceived weakness will not be as bad as we think.
