Run Game WILL roll again

Recommended Posts

Without Cams numbers boosting the run game, the Panthers would probably rank very low.  I just can't see them flipping a switch in week 13 and being a dominant run team (as in running with RBs).

 

I think this is Cam's lowest rushing season......but we got a pretty good split between our RBs We just need to use Stewart and Tolbert to soften the defense up and then use William to stretch the defense out.

 

DeAngelo Williams- 610yds 2TD

 

Mike Tolbert-  253yds 4TD

 

Jonathan Stewart-  125yds 0TD

 

Cam Newton- 379yds 5TD

That starts up front. We need Scott and Hartstock back soon though.

Bingo......................you are correct.

 

The run game starts with the foundation of the offense......... the O line........

 

the O line must be able to trap D line personnel to open up a hole.............if the line can't do that then no runner in the world goes anywhere........as it is, during pass blocking Cam's scrambling ability has kept us in games and a winning season as our O line is struggling there too.

 

We have 3 running backs that are all capable of eating up yards in the secondary but they must have a hole to run through to begin with...........that is why so many of our runs up the middle have no results...

 

The O line is an area that all teams struggle with injuries but more so for the Panthers this year than others............

 

Did you see the trapping the O line did for Minn verses GB yesterday and the big chunks of yards they were getting?

 

If we could get healthy with the O line and trap like that...........then we beat anyone....................if we can't do that, then our inability to run up the middle will be the downfall of our post season..........

I know it has a lot to do with the line and Hartsock, but I feel that every time Deangelo comes in to run it's an instant drive/momentum killer for us.   I don't think DWill has the ability to create holes for himself when the line isn't the best.  That is why he hasn't been able to reach that 2008 season when we had a beast line and Otah was mauling for us.  I feel Stewart and Tolbert are more power backs that can create more holes or at least positive yards somehow.  I'd like to see Stewart and Tolbert get more carries, especially early to beat up their defense first, then let DWill come in with a spark and change up the pace.

 

Please no more wild cats.......

Also had Hoover....best lead blocker in the game paving a path through the line for Williams

Yup, face it that team's offensive line was a monster, at least on the run side.  We could run it on either side and Otah was a beast that year.  You are right, Hoover was underappreciated here and in the league.  I can't deny it's hard for our backs, since everyone in the league knows our right side is garbage.

Our running game has never really been any good this year.

I'd like to see Tolbert and maybe Stewart get more touches. Williams just can't get consistent yards.

it was nice to see the efficiency increase in that last drive though.
