and we still almost won and probably would have if beason hadn't been asked to cover WRs and been abused that whole last drive until norman went full-on moron that last play.

 

one thing i wonder, tho, is what would have happened if we had gone for it on fourth down those two times we were inside the 30. if rivera had had his epiphany before the bills game, would the outcome have been different?

 

i think it would have, even if the offense hadn't been firing on all but a half a cylinder. that last drive we had was going fairly well, iirc. it's a shame that we didn't try.

 

Which is a testament to the defense.....not the offense.

 

But, everyone wants to blame the defense because they were on the field last that day.

You obviously did not watch the game as Schaub went 15/21 and yates 12/17..... Our defense just stepped up when it mattered most. We got sacks when needed and forced turnovers....BTW everyone keeps mentioning about Bradford throwing for so little yards and Tavon not being on the field etc. That is due to Bradford threw his final pass for the game with over 5:00 left in the 3rd quarter. Our defense/ Special teams then scored twice which led to use just running the rest of the way to close out the game......No need for a slot receiver to be in when we have 2 TE's designed specifically to block on the running downs. Before we turned to our new RB stacy we were a pass only team and Austin on average saw 49 plays a game....After our big loss we switched to a balanced attack, which limits Austin and with a lead allowed us to run the ball, which he would not be on the field for.


Obviously I didn't watch the game because I was watching the panthers, but I'm sticking to what I said about thanking you guys for taking austin. He was a slot receiver you guys traded up to get and he hasnt made a seventh overall pick impact.. And I'm not too sure about the guys ceiling. Overall I just don't think youve enough talent on the offensive side of the ball to win the game. Weve a diverse running game as well which is gonna give you guys fits. Dont get me wrong, I like ya guys a lot and I love how ya raped the redskins in that trade and I think itll do numbers for your team but either we beat you or were gonna beat ourselves.

This is the stat that many want to gloss over when discussing the Bills game.

 

The offense was ATROCIOUS.  Two FG's scored for the entire game when the defense gave you the ball inside the 30 TWICE.

I agree, anyone who looks past that and still blames the defense, albeit they did give up the final score, is just lost on football as a team sport.  the game should have never been in contention with a competent offense.

I don't blame them.  31 team's fans look at the schedule during the preseason.  31 teams mark the Panthers as a W when predicting this season's final record.  No one fears us.

 

 

That's a good thing. Assuming based on the dysfunction of a team isn't always a good thing. The Panthers is way more better than they appear.

 

I personally like when folks underestimate a team.

i absolutely blame the defense for that last drive, but they shouldn't have been put in that situation to begin with.

 

the offense should have scored more. shula should have opened things up more. that was a typical shula run offensive game. rivera should have coached in "desperate" mode (that comment still irks me). cam was trying to change who he was and keep things safe. the receivers were playing like crap. the OL, esp. bell, were about as stout an OL as a wet paper bag.

 

coaching and the offense let this team down more than anyone, but the whole team lost that game. from coaches on down to players.

losing is a team effort. just like winning is.

Well they do get the blame

 

Why?

 

The offense got points on the board, they did their job

 

Defense is supposed to stop the team from putting points on the board right? They failed like they have in the past 2 seasons a few times
