PFF: Buffalo/Carolina Refocused: Interesting Read

Star Stars Again

Though they have lost their opening two games, Panthers fans can at least celebrate the play of first-round draft pick Star Lotulelei (+4.3) through the early part of the season. Though his stat line doesn’t jump off the screen at you, with just one quarterback hurry and two tackles, he seemed to have the better of Bills’ left guard Colin Brown for much of the encounter. His day was highlighted by a tackle for loss on 3rd-and-4 with 8:51 left in the first quarter, bursting past Brown straight off the snap to take down Fred Jackson for a four-yard loss. The tackle would push the Bills’ ensuing field goal try to 42 yards, with kicker Dan Carpenter hooking it wide right.

Also this made me do a double take:

 

 

- The Panthers averaged 6.3 yards per carry on four runs off right guard.

Deangelo's 21 yard scamper kind of makes that stat look much better.

True, but yards are yards.

I think I may have missed that 21 yard run sunday. I went to the restroom and heard screaming so I ran back out. I was told by other bar folk that I was bad luck and needed to watch the game in the restroom because when I wasn't in the restroom, panthers were looking good. :(

While it wasn’t a great all-around performance, the type of pass rushing shown by Mario Williams was enough to win him the PFF Game Ball. Byron Bell will be having nightmares about his bull rush for weeks to come.

 

Why would Bell have nightmares? He feels like he played well

I want to see our avg yds per carry with cam under center vs when we run the read option out of shotgun. The read option absolutely kills our run game. Every time DW gets the ball he is tackled at the line.

- With seven catches for 84 yards and a touchdown on the seven passes thrown his way, Cam Newton had a quarterback rating of 156.3 on throws to tight end Greg Olsen.

 

Olsen was almost invisible second half, anyone know how many passes were thrown to him in the second half?

This has always been the case with Olsen.  We either wait till second half to get him involved or go away from it the second half.   We never utilize him for a full game it seems like.

Not many. I noticed that we had him in the backfield more in the second half to help the offensive line keep the Bills' rush at bay.

Bills defense adjusted and took him out of the equation.

 

 

How did Shula counter this adjustment is the question....
