newton says shula called unbelievable game

75 posts in this topic

Cam was a little bit conservative today, but he was targeting the open man, not the down and distance, and now he just has to find the balance for himself between the two.

Of course no complaints from Smith.  They were championing hard for Shula in the offseason.  Even if he does suck, they're not going to throw him under the bus.  The problem is, and has always been they're not enough playmakers on the offense.  The WR's, outside of Smith suck (like a good portion of us have been saying), and he doesn't really have enough time to take those deep shots downfield.  Also, Olsen is soft and inconsistent as hell.  He is not an elite TE.

That deep ball Olsen dropped might have been the best throw I've seen Cam make. Olsen dropped another with no one in sight that would have been a big gain.

Steve Smith surprisingly chipper after loss. Says b/c of opponent, #Panthers shouldn't be too disappointed. Also "no complaints" about Shula

I love Smitty but, I'm not putting a lot of weight in what he's saying right now. I think he's feeling himself after a solid individual game.

Basically, Carolina did on offense what ever spent all offseason claiming they should do......

yet people now claim it was wrong bc we lost.

We didn't lose bc of Shula.

Thomas, Williams, Smith? Yeah....those guys cost us.

Cam was ~70% completion % today. He made a ton of excellent short throws, normally his weak point. There are some serious bright spots there.

So when he calls a bad game are we going to go into the negatives?

 

7 points with an awesome game....high standards FTW

True, but the two Olsen drops would be changed our whole view on his game today IMO.

You do realize late in the game we were all the way down to the Seattle 10.....ready to take the lead against the team most our crowing the NFC Champs?

If Williams doesn't fumble.....it certainly was a good called game.

People seem to forget no one puts up big numbers against Seattle. A good game is being in position to win against them. We were.

Shula actually schemed pretty good IMO for Seattle and based on how the game flowed.

Never has Cam thrown for less yards in a single game. Never.

I also would like to say Training Camp All-Pro Armanti Edwards sure showed out today, and Hixon sure was racking up the ass splinters per usual! The reason there were not deep shots downfield was because there was no one open. Smitty is our only viable WR.
