#2908503 The Official "Whats the main problem with the passing game" poll

Posted by Navy_football on 25 August 2014 - 09:13 AM

Cam Newton is the QB. If there's a problem with the passing game, I think you have to begin the discussion with the QB. Of course, every item on the list is relevant. But in my opinion, Cam is the biggest factor. 


Though I caveat that with Shula/Rivera not using him properly. Cam is not a true pocket passer - yet. They are literally forcing him to be one and it's gonna take time, and the team will take its lumps in the process in the win/loss column. But it will take that dynamic to win the ultimate prize - Rivera knows that. Cam could win 10+ games this season running as soon as he sees an opening, but good defenses will stop him in the playoffs. 


It's just the next step in Cam's progression as a complete QB. Accurately reading defenses pre-snap, and anticipating the throw before WRs are open, particularly in the middle of the field. He's always been confident outside the numbers, which is usually the harder throw, but he hesitates and wants to see a receiver open in the middle of the field before he lets go. 


And he has to start completing those deep balls. Not sure what happened, but that was his bread and butter as a rookie. That and the deep outs to #89. 

#2901318 Who's In/Out vs Pats

At least the right side is the sight side, but my bigger concern is line continuity and chemistry between a rookie and a new tackle.


This is it to me. Rookies, new players and old players in new positions require time to gel probably as much as any group on the field, including QB/WR. 


Practice is one thing, but there's a reason many teams allow their o-line starters to play longer than skill position starters in preseason. Turner and Chandler could really use this time together under fire.

i truly feel sorry for anyone who has to see him in the open field when he gets a head full of steam. fug that


I'd go straight Deion Sanders on that one - it's a business decision.


Side step and slap his feet together from behind. Ain't NOBODY got time for that!

Great pics and write-ups Zod! 


I ain't gonna lie though, I still find myself looking for #89 at times. Damn...

#2876182 Dalton signs 6 year deal......Cam watching

JR will not allow Gettleman to let Cam test the market. They'll likely use their 5th year option. And when the books are mostly clear of those ridiculous contracts, Cam will get PAID! I'm thinking $40-$50 million guaranteed. 


They dare not allow him to test free agency. That would be the absolute worst thing this franchise could do.

Posted by Navy_football on 03 August 2014 - 08:12 AM

Gettleman has and will continue to earn his money, not only through the draft, but through quality FA pick ups and contract negotiations that don't cripple the team. Big contracts will only be given to the correct players. Cam will be paid a king's ransom. He's more than a QB, he is truly becoming an icon of the NFL. So is Luke. Their current value exceeds their on-the-field play.


Guys like Stewart, DLo, and CJ really should never have been given the contracts they received. Love them all as players and as respectable young men, but Hurney crippled the franchise for years with their contracts. I think we'll see a lot more guys leave for greener pastures during Gettleman's tenure, but he'll continue to make smart, forward-thinking business decisions. Because unlike Hurney,  Gettleman is not afraid of losing any one player. He realizes there is a lot of talent in the NFL that aren't big names. Some players just aren't used correctly or in the right scheme.  And he has shown a remarkable ability to find them.

We really need to temper our expectations regarding our Tackles and how poorly they do against Hardy, Alexander and Johnson. They may be the best DE tandem in the NFL, and I have seen them completely dominate games. 

#2871540 Lookin at our Schedule if we can even crack 10 wins this is a super bowl lock

Posted by Navy_football on 31 July 2014 - 09:40 AM

I totally agree with you but want your thoughts on a theory. Do you think the "Oh, we lost (insert name) and I don't think we can replace him" comments are emotional mainly due to people tying a 12 win season with these guys rather then tying it to the system we have in place? I for one think the WR corp is better this year and the secondary is on par with last year. Mitchell was great here but I think he thrived in the system. Why can't the new guys (who happen to be pro bowlers) produce in a similar manner?

To me the main worry is at LT. This is a competent team with a good mix of veterans and several strong young talented players.

I agree. I loved Mitchell and Ginn out there, but no one player is that difficult to be replaced - except of course a franchise QB.


LT is the biggest question mark, but they may actually be okay there. There will be a drop off, but perhaps not as much as we all fear. 


Although, they lose some athleticism (speed), the receiving corp could potentially be markedly better than last season in a) the red zone, B) with fewer drops, c) winning the 50/50 balls and d) bigger targets with larger catching radii. 


And what can not be understated from the past two seasons is the incredibly mediocre-to-poor play of the guards, particularly the right guard. If those guys can stay healthy, everything improves - running game, passing game/play action, goal line, everything.

#2866245 Question about Stewart

Posted by Navy_football on 27 July 2014 - 07:15 AM

I don't think it's that big of a deal with running backs. It's such an instinctive position. As long as the holes are there and he trusts the holes will be there, he'll be fine.

I'm sure it's not because of Luke's reflection. I stalked him from first...

Posted by Navy_football on 26 July 2014 - 02:20 PM

He just comes off like a Ricky Williams type to me. I don't think he's lazy. I think he just has other things he wants to do and football is just a means to an end. He'll miss the game when it's gone though and regret he wasted an opportunity to be truly great and remembered.
