Seattle Loss

Five reasons why the Panthers lost.

 

1)  Greg Olsen had three 1st down drops two on 3rd down killing the drive.

2)  Carolina had three 15 yard personal foul penalties and one re-kick which kept Seattle's offense on the field once and improved their field position from the 9 yard line to the 28 yard line on a kick off because Seattle elected for a re-kick rather than the penalty.

3)  Rivera should have thrown the challenge flag on DeAngelo Williams first down run where he was at least a yard past the first down marker, but marked down short and the Panthers punt.

4)  DeAngelo Williams fumble on the 5 yard line with 5:30 to play.

5)  Panther's defense collapsed during the last 5 minutes and rather than tackle everyone tried to strip the ball.  Seattle's yardage after catch or initial contact during this series was ridiculous.

 

Overall the Panther's coaches did a decent job, but it was obvious that Rivera can NOT finish a game.  Panther's were leading in the 4th as usual and Rivera was out coached.  The defense went soft and DeAngelo's fumble killed the Panthers, but the three 1st down drops by Olsen during the 1st half cost the Panther's points.  Every first down matters and Rivera should have challenged the DeAngelo 1st down run in the first half as well.  

 

When you watch a great coach like Belichick you see a coach that does not allow opportunities slip away and it doesn't start in the 4th quarter, it starts on Monday when he is watching game film and preparing.  Rivera is unprepared and it shows.

 

Everyone should buy the NFL replay package for $29.99.  HD quality games as many times as you care to watch.

the success rate on overturning spot of the ball calls is like 3% or somethign ridiculous.

 

That flag should never be thrown ever.

Bellichick challenges spot of ball calls almost every game.  

 

It was the 1st half and the Panthers had timeouts in their pocket at half time.  It most definitely should have been challenged.....clearly a first down.

in the end, the only reason carolina lost the game was williams's fumble.

 

despite all the other mishaps and mistakes, the panthers were in the game the entire time. the fumble kept the winning points off the board, energized seattle and deflated carolina's defense.
