What are your thoughts on this move? 

 

I didn't like the decision at the time, and I definintely didn't like it after Cam took the sack.  The defense had been playing well.  Take the 3 points to go up by two touchdowns essentially. 

 

Bad Riverboat, bad.

I was more upset with the draw play on 2nd and 30.

I was cool with it because it would still be a 2 possession game regardless and Rivera wanted to end the game then and there. Actually I believe that kind of move is the reason why he is Riverboat Ron.

 

 

That's the general argument....but I would counter that the Jets are much less likely to score two touchdowns, or a TD and two FGs.

 

The risk was not greater than the reward IMO.  The move could have really cost the Panthers but luckily we pulled out the W with a blocked punt and the INT score.

100% agree with Coach. 10-13 isn't a big difference. Two touchdowns and we would have lost the lead no matter what. Ron trusted our defense. We have up a long scoring drive to the Jets but, in the end our defense stuck it out and got us a W.

 

Correct move IMO.

    • I wouldn't say he made him look bad, just expendable (and overpaid).
    • Good let them. Will just allow other good players to drop to us in round 2-4

    • And this is my problem.  Its not that he can or can't run from the shotgun. The problem is that he never has and you just don't know. Will he have the patience to wait beside the QB with the ball in his belly? And during that time the line is blocking and shifting in front of him. There is no definite "hole" to run to. After the QB finally leaves the ball to him, does he have the read-option vision to find that little crease in the line, plant his foot, and cut through it? Jonathan Stewart does, but Stew played in a spread, shotgun offense in college, so he already knew what he was doing. Can Fournette do that well? The answer at this point, since he's never been asked to, is "maybe". Do you spend the #8 overall pick rolling the dice on "maybe"? At a position that in general is the most short-lived in the NFL? Maybe DG and Rivera do exactly that.  If so, I can understand their gamble and would hope for the best. Fournette is a great talent.
