Which Offense do you want?

If the running backs can get at least 800 yards a season a piece then the load would be taken off of cam. He's asked to do too much and I'm surprised that at the end of the games his tongue isn't hanging out from running for 70 yards and passing for 230.

How much is that play calling though? We can't say that teams didn't stack the box on Jake and make us run the ball at them. He'll we averaged almost the same passing yards a game with Jake.

There's no way Turner is coming here for a lame duck coach unless he feel as if he will inherit the hc spot.

That was the funny thing about the 2008 season, the box was stacked with 8 and sometimes 9 players in the box.  We won those games that year because of pure rushing.  I think dwill had 18 rushing touchdowns that year.  You don't have 2 backs with 1100 yards each and other teams don't stack the box.

2013 Carolina Panthers?

Offense lead by Mike Shula....

22.9 Pts a game (18th)

316.8 Yards a game (26th)

190.2 Pass Yards a game (29th)

126.6 Rush Yards a game (11th)

1st in NFC South with a record of 12-4

2008 Carolina Panthers?

Offense lead by Jeff Davidson....

25.9 Pts a game (7th)

349.7 Yards a Game (10th)

197.4 Pass Yards a game (19th)

152.3 Rush Yards a game (3rd)

1st in NFC South with a record of 12-4

Did the 2013 Carolina Panthers over achieve on offense though out the year? I remember this board being ecstatic when Jeff Davidson wasn't our O-Cord any more. It was said he didn't get along with Steve Smith, and ran a very boring, predictable offense.

What do y'all think? Keep with the status quo and keep Mike for another year and hope for a marginal increase in performance? Get him more weapons? I would say that both teams were very similar with talent overall.

2008

QB- Jake

RB- Deangelo, Stewart

FB- Brad Hoover

WR- Smith, Moose, Hackett, Jarrett

TE- King, Rosario

LT- Gross

LG- Wharton

C- Kalil

RG- Hangman/Bridges

RT- Otah

2013

QB- Cam

RB- Deangelo, Stewart

FB- Tolbert

WR- Smith, Lafell, Ginn, Hixon

TE- Olsen, Hartstock

LT- Gross

LG- Wharton

C- Kalil

RG- Scott/Chandler

RT- Bell

This team needs to get rid of their RB. If your QB ends up with more  rush yards then them, they don't need to be working. Keep Smity but push Ginn and Hixon to take over first and second WR, so they will realize...either u shape up or you will be gone. Hartstock needs to go.  Put Tolbert in a more useful position where he's touching the ball more than this season. Get rid of the entire O-line because they are simply unpredictable.

and this board for example couldn't wait for the Jeff Davidson era to be over and done. But say what you will, he produced a more potent offense, although it crapped the bed in the playoffs, then Mike Shula did with Cam Newton.

 

Correction: Delhomme crapped the bed in the playoffs. He not only crapped the bed but he permanently stained the Egyptian cotton sheets, ruined the soft down comforter, diarrheaed all on the carpet while trotting to the bathroom and then proceeded to clog the toilet.

I don't think he will ever get another HC job again and I hope he realizes that.

The real difference is these guys are 5 years older. Give me that oline, rbs, and Smitty with their youth back and we would be right back in it, especially with the addition on Tolbert, Olsen, and Cam. Time to give this offense some more talented youth this offseason.

Well, someone has to say it: A hybrid of Chud's 2011 and 2012 offense, modified to fit Cam's growing skill set in the pocket (with a beefed up O-line of course).

That Cardinal game was all Delhomme

The 2008 team had some talent, but we were also near the bottom of the league that year in TOP per possession, plays per drive, and three and outs. 

 

We also were in the top 10 in number of possessions.

 

That was probably a worse run offense with much more talent than 2013.

 

Our defense was really good that season, but ranked in the bottom half of the NFL in Yards allowed and finished 12th in points allowed when it was really probably a top 5 defense talent wise..

Notice Cam's weapons are almost the same. New Car with an old engine. We need an offense that features Cam's skills. Everyone says we have an offense built around a power run game, and I'm like powe run game? That's not what I'm seeing
