Where is our run game?

Cam has to step in and help them way too much....

We also run better out of "Cam" run looks. You just line up and run a RB with Cam under C? The ypc is a joke

 

Cam always steps in and helps with the run because that's part of his game. And why is a 4.6 average a joke? Because Cam was the leading rusher? We don't have a typical running scheme like most teams. We have a three headed monster to gain yards on the ground which INCLUDES Cam. I am fine with him being the leading rusher in this game and we ran the ball well when we had to.

Our OL sucks however good our backs are.

We dont have an elite RB.. 

 

we also do not have any healthy athletic quick O linemen to get out ahead and block upfield. 

 

I do however wish to see Barner out there more.. But I do love our RB group.

Ginn continues to show why no one else wanted him. I don't know if his positives outweigh some of these drops.

The patriots touchdown last week says yes.

Just in case anyone thought I was serious, I was being sarcastic about Kenjon Barner... If our opponents respect our backfield well enough to scheme to stop it, that says plenty more than a few hostile huddlers with their pitchforks. Because when Stew was out all I heard was that we needed him against the tough teams like San Fran and things was going to change when he got back in the mix. 3 games and 3.5 ypc later he has without a doubt outplayed DeAngelo Williams. Ok...

i wonder how long before Stew gets back to form... he kinda sucks right now. he's my favorite of the originals but this is not what i was hoping for... btw mike seemed to be shaken up at the end of the game! not good... we can't face NO looking like we did. Mia was 25th in stopping the run... smh i think NO is around 17.


I think 28 looks fine. No holes for him either. He just has better odds in the trash piles.

our Oline is average at best... kalil being the only guy playing at a high level in my opinion. wharton and gross are on the back 9 of their careers, and bell and chandler are works in progress

 

all things considered tho we can't complain, they have battled hard and have done enough to bring home some W's

The Panthers have not been able to run because of the o-line.  Teams are figuring out how to attack the running game, and why Cam is running for his life.

 

The o-line is a weak link to this team mostly due to injury.  The Panthers lost their starting LG (Amini the #2 draft pick last year) and were fortunate to sign Wharton.  They lost their starting RG (Williams), and the backup RG Byers, and then the backup to the backup (Scott) and now have a converted D-Lineman as the starter (Chandler).  Not too mention they also lost a key backup in Campbell, as well as their Kugbilla. 

 

Bell is an average at best LT, but when you have that much injury at RG there is definitely going to be transition, inconsistent play, and lack of execution especially on the right side of the o-line.  Gross, Wharton, and Kalil are holding it together, but they can't do it all.  That is why Hartsock & Brockel are valuable.....they help hide the o-line's problems.  Hopefully Harsock is back next game.

I don't buy the injury excuse....was weak going in. All it took was a few weeks on tape for opponents to see how we were running behind it to shut it down.

We only were running in certain gaps early bc that was all we could do.....me teams take that away.

We aren't worse at LG. We aren't worse than RG.

All goes back to DG playing it safe IMO and washing his hands of this O for the season.....RR tweaked his coaching and now we are winning. Now the OL neglect looks to be costly.
