#Panthers OC Mike Shula responds to criticism he was too conservative vs. SEA, says he'll do what it takes to win. http://www.charlotteobserver.com/2013/09/09/4300788/ron-rivera-carolina-panthers-passing.html …
“This system is a system that does that a lot. But just because you have a system that does that doesn’t mean you have to force the ball down the field,” Shula said Monday. “I really thought Cam did a nice job on a lot of decisions he made. There’s some things we looked at that, yeah, we had some opportunities. We think we’ll get better in that regard. But you don’t want to just all of a sudden say, ‘Hey, we’ve got to throw the ball down the field.’”
Shula said the Seahawks played a lot of deep zone coverages, particularly on third downs, forcing Newton to settle for underneath receivers.
