This time Rivera talking generally on PFT. Reading the tea leaves: Don't look for much change offensively.

OK, guys, nothing really new (same theme as Olsen), but he did say that as for as our WRs go, "We have to basically replace 10 catches by the wide receiver position," making reference to the fact that we rushed for over 100 yards in 15 of 16 games. 'We've got to find guys that can catch the ball those 10 times to be able to do what we did last year."

 

 

 

Sounds like Shula's offense is going to be implemented in full force.   :phew:  

animated-msn-big-grin-smiley-emoticon.gi  Oh, goody.  

 

I wonder if those rushing totals that he is referencing include Newton's yardage.

I have no problem with adding hog mollies and getting better in the run game. Plus better protection won't hurt the passing game

Strengthen that OLine. The O will work.

If we can run the ball down someone's throat, I'm all for it. If we can't, then we need the will and the weapons to make an adjustment.  

 

I just don't want to run into the pile a couple of times, throw an incompletion and punt for the preponderance of possessions each game.

It's nice to see such positive fans like yourself on the huddle.

Sorry about the double post. Aahh that search function. Mods, perhaps you can merge.

I hate when it is referenced we rushes for 100+ yards in 15 games.

That makes it sound like we rush the ball well. It was just Cam largely making something weak look good on a stat sheet

 

If he believes that without taking into account Cam's production, then we may be able to duplicate last year's success, or something like it. But that's all.  

 

To me, he's a little delusional, or is trying to make us feel better by selling us snake oil.

Yep and most of Cam's scrambles come once the play is broken down and he makes something happen.

If you minus Cam's rushing yards, Carolina's running backs combined to rush for over 100 yards just 4 times (including playoff game).

Lafell brought the total to over 100 in the Minnesota game so I didn't count it because I only included the running backs.

Why not change it if you can't fucking score.

And I'd hope they want to do more than just replace the production from last year. The WR's weren't good enough last year, they better find people that can top that production or I don't see how this team goes any further than they did last year.
