McDermott: Injuries in secondary prevented Panthers from playing nickel down the stretch.
McDermott: considered putting Thomas Davis at safety
McDermott: LB Jordan Senn also offered to help in the secondary.
this is how bad it got.
so what do we do?
hmmm...go for it on fourth (when your team has a 81% success rate on 3rd or 4th down and 1), keep the ball in your hands and maybe score another TD...running more time off the clock
kick another 3 and put the other offense in a situation where it's guaranteed they're going to drive downfield and pass on your secondary in an away game against a charged up team and fan base.
i just....ummm...i don't know.
