Panthers v 49ers Lessons Learned

The Panthers line up with Cam in the pistol. Williams is offset a bit however. There are also blockers on either side of Newton. Cam will ride Williams while the blockers go to lead up for him to his right. On this play, Ahmad Brooks, who had a helluva game, takes dive/Williams. Between the linebacker and the safety to Brooks' side (red circles), somebody is supposed to have Newton.

 

 

 

 

I'm not going to steal his article but above is a sample.  Stephen White was a former player for TB and he is a great follow on twitter.  He normally does these for TB games but he also does some by request.  He places 85% of the blame on Shula.  I'm sure not many are surprised. It's worth a read.

The lesson I that was proven to me was that when you show that you're fixing the game early, the players will be less inspired to fight back. Try to fix a game to late and it can back fire on ya.

Now taking bets on the crux of P55's response:

 

What does a defensive end know about offense - 7/1

 

What does the OP know about offense - 5/2

 

Generally gripes about the board gunning for Shula from day 1 - 2/1

 

"This bafoon was clearly looking at an inferior All-22 film than the one I watched" - 4/3

outside of the 1 yard line work.....I thought the O was unstoppable for the 1st half.  Yeah, Cam had the one bad throw but they pretty much did what they wanted against SF.

 

Even though RR wouldn't fess up to it....89 was struggling to run in the 2nd half and was a decoy.  I do agree playing with a man down made it tough. Newton wasn't even pretending to look at 89...and he always looks for 89

This makes it all that much more quizzical to  me that people came away from that game thinking "O-Line, first 6 picks". 

 

Cam had plenty of time to throw during the day.

Well our LT leaving would be an issue. Also, helps to draft your future LT a year before he has to be your LT.

Cam definitely needs weapons though

i still think that pass may have been intended for Olsen, Lafell just reacted like anyone else would, although he probably should have know olsen was behind him

oline did pretty well pass blocking, it was the run blocking where we really sucked it up, and pretty much all year

Very nice find!  What it shows me is that you win some, you lose some.  When it's crunch time you have to make a play or else. 

 

That being said, a big portion of the blame can go to the offensive calls.  As Zod has been fond of, this article points out some of the problems with Shulaball this game.  My hope is that as Riverboat has grown as a coach, MAYBE Shula will....(hope?  pray?)  On the defensive side of things, some of those are just mistakes that players make.  As far as calling out Keukly about his PIs, it's part of the NFL.  Someone posted an article about how Seattle plays to PI, and refs will stop calling it because it makes them look bad.  If it works for the Legion of Boom, why not for everyone else?
