The play calls at the end of the game were NOT playoff caliber

I read your post and your suggestions.  I do not think we have the personnel to run or perform your ideas on a consistent basis.  We have only one person maybe 2 who can consistently beat who is guarding them.  Steve Smith and Olsen.  Today only 1 of those guys are was available.  It could be the route tree but Ginn was the only one who consistently run away from anyone and he is basically out the play if he gets jammed.  Add to the fact that the right side of the line breaks down so inconsistently at times.  I just don't know if Shula has the personnel to call a lot of things. 


We have quite possibly the worst receiving corps in the NFC. 

Out of all the playoff teams we have by far the worst offensive line imo.


My grandma used to say.. "I don't care how good of a cook you are, you ain't making a sweet potato pie with no sweet potatoes".  


Well said, but we have one good pulling guard and center that can move the line to force all secondary off coverage on our WRs............and even the worse ones can get open in a zone switch from man to man. yet Cam doesn't even have to throw there..........a pump fake and a scramble or drop off pass to a Back and the yards are there with no way to defend it consistently.


That type of play should be used at lease once every series or so........

We can't have both top of the line Mcdermott defenses and Chudzinski offenses. I am satisfied with our defense and Clutch offense, as long as we keep winning the close ones. I do understand these fourth quarters are nerve wracking but I'd rather have our current situation then the 2008 situation (great run game, okay pass game, but average defense). Defense will take you to the playoffs, now Newton and Co. needs to stay clutch and attempt to score 17-23 a game and the road to the SB will be that much easier.

Gotta love fans that believe they can call a better game than the coaches. Armchair QBs are the cutest things.


Get Cam under control and the Offense will pick up. How many passes did he miss again today? 4 that I can think of off the top of my head. 2 of them would have been big gainers.


But by all means. Email Shula with your play suggestions. I am quite sure he will take them to heart.

Lol how unironic

A thread created for some discussion on playcalling analysis, and just like any other critical thinking thread after a win the same coalition of forest-for-the-trees cretins are fusing into some giant megazord threadshitting their pre-programmed censurings at literally any living creature that could've had a problem with the playcalling in today's game

"SUm pPl Ar NEVaR HAPpy I SwEar!!!"

I didnt read the whole thread, but we're playoff bound with the number 2 seed.  We've already beaten plenty of playoff bound teams with our questionable playcalling, namely SF, NE, and NO (we also should have beaten SEA and have #1 seed).


Look at it from this perspective, why do anything different than what's worked most of the year?  If you show any wrinkles at this point in the year, then you're basically telling the team we face in the playoffs what to expect if we start struggling.  Save the good stuff for the playoffs and win the Lambardi.

I am usually more of a pessimist type concerning my teams in football but to get the Panthers into the playoffs with a first round bye with the offensive talent that we have now is one of the most unbelievably greatest coaching jobs I have ever witnessed in my many many years.   With Smith out....a patchwork offensive line....a receiving corps that struck fear into no one.....and Cam throwing 5 yards over everyone's head for the first 20 minutes of play we still WON.  Incredible job.   This isn't video game football.  Go back to your couches with your play stations and x boxes if you don't enjoy it.

All I'll say is  IF Seattle is the the best the NFC has then i feel pretty good. I watched the first half of the Sea.- St.L game, and if the Rams had half a QB they would have probably won. BTW the falcons (as much as I hate them ) are a better team than their record....they took the 9ers to the wire last week.. Lighten up....we've got two weeks to rest, get 89 healed up and look at our mistakes on film....enjoy it!

They won the game because the Falcons nutted up. It's not too much to ask for your squad to get a fuging first down to put the game on ice.

Chicken poo play calling will only take you so far.

Is that also why we are 12-4 and have won 10 out of the last 11 games.

Holy poo the collective ignorance in this thread is amazing.

We make the Atlanta fans from the Vick era look like a fuging think tank.

At the moment, I would give our offense about a 4 out of 10.  Not what you want heading into the playoffs.


Not that others don't see it, but they pick their favorite player (Cam) and level blame at the rest of the offense and coaching.


There is enough blame to go around for sure.  If a coach calls a play and it does not work, is it poor execution or a poor call?  Could be either or both.


We do not block well, throw well, get open well, secure the ball well, and yet Shula is our main issue?  Grow up and admit that there are a few bright spots occasionally from our offense, but lack of execution and its effects are not on one person but the entire unit has definite room to improve.

All of you people not worried about our offense really need to wake the fug up it is a serious problem that it has looked bad and out of sync the
last 3-4 games not something you want to see going into the playoffs we should have beat them soundly we got lucky with that fumble

My concern lies with the players. When they block well, make catches, and throw accurately they play more effective offense. They are tired and a bit hobbled right now.

Shula making the playoffs because of a defensive juggernaut team?


Is it 2013 or 1998?
