Barner's Impact Against Arizona

77 posts in this topic

Arizona's run defense has been good, and the secondary will present a challenge to our receivers.

 

Think Barner could have a real impact out of the backfield in the passing game.  Wouldn't be surprised to see him get quite a few touches.  He reminds me a lot of Reggie Bush.

 

Like Bill Parcells said one time about Bush, "He's a satellite, you got to get him space."

I think were to optimistic about barner. We haven't seen him do anything out the ordinary in a real game. Lets temper these exspectations we have of him for a while. The hype this guy gets you would think we drafted him in the first round.

As conservative as RR is....I would be surprised if he saw a lot of work. I think he is concerned with the time off and will be worried if he knows all the assignments with such a long gap since camp.

I have to disagree. RR has been waiting for his scat back for a long time. I think he gets a good amount of looks.

You may be right, and the truth is he may be a liability on blitz pick up, but he is a dynamic weapon to have and not use.  Barner may be the fastest guy on the team outside of Ginn

I think he does overall this year....just not his first NFL game after weeks off of having just learned this offense.

RR already voiced he had concerns of the lay off impacting all he learned. Voiced he had to prove he hadn't lost any of the mental junk

We've still run 0 screens to Ted Ginn, which is a glaringly obvious move that should be staring them in the face. I doubt we do anything special with Barner.

2 touches at the most. Since his ball security was a bit of an issue they will bring him along slowly in tight games...if its a blowout he would see more work.

Cam Newton throws horrible screens....I don't blame Shula.

Plus, they talked about it in NFL Sirius yesterday about how those WR screens shouldn't be used like they were a few short years ago.....so heavily used in the league DBs blow them up at much higher rates now

    • A pro? Cool. Just quit crying in the panthers main forum about the quality of threads and talking about how you're going to leave. That's not what a troll does. If you're going to troll troll right
    • Naziism wasn't really socialism and in fact one of their first orders of business was to eradicate Communists from Germany. Also, trying to meld Nazis with socialists is disingenuous because the issue with Nazi Germany wasn't their economy which actually recovered quite well under Nazi rule, but the first part of their name.  "Nationalist".  That is what drove them to war crimes and mass murder of Jews and immigrants. And the party that currently most mirrors a form of nationalism close to Naziism is the Republican Party.  With heavy anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim, criminalization of minorities, etc etc rhetoric.  
    • Looked at both your posts, they didn't improve so I will pick this one. Cherrypicking a stat or six game period that was decent hardly justifies that we were middle of the pack. First of all this discussion was about cornerbacks not defensive ends so your run defense and sack stats means little. Newsflash. We were top 10 in rush defense because teams didn't have to run on us when they could pick up chunks in passing the ball. We were 26th in number of rushing attempts by the opponent meaning 25 teams had the opponent rush more times than we did.  And we were second in sacks for the same reason. Teams passed all the time on us giving us many more times to sack them.  We had the 6th most passes thrown against us. We were second in sacks behind Arizona- 47   to their 48. But they had 547 attempts against them versus our 612. So we had a sack for every 13 attempts. Arizona had a sack every 11 attempts. Even Buffalo which ranked 9th in sacks with 39 had the same one sack for every 13 passes attempted as we did. Teams completed passes almost 70% of the time which also ranks us 29th. We were tied for 22nd with 4 other teams in giving up 7.5 yards per pass play.  We were 21st in yards surrendered in total defense. And in points surrendered we were 26th not 15th. That was offense not defense that was 15th. With all the offense and Shula bashing I can understand why you might think the defense was better than the offense but it was the other way around. TL,DR Wrong we are one of the worse defenses in the league no matter how you look at it.
