#1997084 Should we give up on a QB 25 games into his career?

Posted by fieryprophet on 12 November 2012 - 09:14 PM

No. Hell no. Nada. Nil. Nein. Nay. Negative. Negatory. Nope. No way. No f*cking way. No way, Jose. Not on my watch. Never. Never, ever. Never ever never.

Does anyone not remember that this time last year you were ready to trade Bell for a washing machine? Silatolu will be fine.

Cam Newton was put under duress, hit or sacked on 19 of his 45 dropbacks (42.2 pct) in Sunday's game. That's the highest single-game percentage and total for Newton this season, and the highest number of dropbacks under pressure the Broncos defense has forced in a game this season. Newton was sacked seven times, tied for fourth most in a game this season, and finished 1-of-9 for 8 yards and an interception when under duress.

Most of the time the ball was out within 2 seconds.

He took much less time than Cam had.

Of course he did, Zod. His offense had him throwing sideline out routes almost all game. And he got to actually change the play before the snap, and a decent running effort as well.

12 inches of separation is open with a solid QB throwing.

Like hell it is. Just because Aaron Rodgers can make those passes once or twice a game doesn't mean that is the kind of scheme you live on. Look at the Saints or Patriots offenses. They're designed on either isolating all-world talents like Graham and Gronk, or getting someone else like Welker or Sproles running in space. They don't attempt a hundred seam-splitting throws a game, that's a recipe for disaster. This offense doesn't have an overwhelming physical specimen and completely misuses its receivers in space. It should be a hard-running play action offense and the fact that its not shows how stupid the coaching staff is.

You need practice spotting open receivers

Them being open after the play is over doesn't count. And 90% of fans have no idea what an open receiver looks like, they just think if the defender isn't riding them like a horse they're open. Our offense forces Cam to sit on his reads because the routes take forever to develop.

There were lots of open receivers today well within 3 seconds. Cam is very slow in his progressions, needs faster decision making.

A three step drop would be nice. Tired of 5-7 step drops.

I counted five open receivers all game.

How fast can the ball come out when the coverage fits the play call perfectly, and is entirely devoid of short routes. Play action passing is the league's bread and butter and we completely overlook it. Chud can GTFO and I now wish he had taken the damn Jaguars job.

Give me Bruce Arians.

#1993854 Cam isn't allowed to audible

Posted by fieryprophet on 11 November 2012 - 04:41 PM

Anyone else notice how much better the offense functions during 2 minute drills? That's when Cam is free to run the plays. Fire Chud. Fire Rivera for letting Chud run this stupid offense.

#1984366 Pro Football Focus: Colts Overrated, Panthers Underrated

Posted by fieryprophet on 06 November 2012 - 01:20 PM

It's an insider post, so I'll post the Panthers part: http://insider.espn....ianapolis-colts

Underrated -- Carolina Panthers (No. 29)

When the general manager has been fired midseason, you know things haven't gone well for a team. And the Panthers' 2-6 record is proof of that. But when you examine the Panthers a little more closely, you see a team that isn't as bad as its record. They nearly beat the Atlanta Falcons, Dallas Cowboys and Chicago Bears. In fact they were in control of all of those games and let them slip through their fingers.

Let's break down the team. The much-maligned Cam Newton has been disappointing in his sophomore season, and the offense hasn't clicked. They definitely have experienced some growing pains trying to open things up more. Last year they ran three-or-more wide receiver sets on 47.4 percent of plays; this year, that number has jumped to 59.7 percent. It hasn't quite worked and the rushing game has faltered.

But the defense is much better. Nowhere is this more evident than how they're getting to the passer. Charles Johnson is averaging a quarterback disruption on 18.3 percent of pass rushes, compared with 11.8 percent last year; Greg Hardy has moved from 9.7 percent in 2011 to 13.4 percent this year; and they've even gotten production out of rookie Frank Alexander, who has a pressure percentage of 11.7 percent. It has all been making life extremely uncomfortable for opposing quarterbacks.

Yes, they'll miss Chris Gamble and Jon Beason as the season goes on, but the development of Luke Kuechly is encouraging and Thomas Davis' comeback is generating positive returns on the field -- he has held up so far, playing 53.8 percent of the team's total snaps.

Nobody is going to confuse the Panthers with a possible playoff contender. But they've been competitive -- and then some -- against good teams and are coming off a big win against the Washington Redskins. For our money, that makes them a better team than the likes of the Oakland Raiders, Buffalo Bills and Tennessee Titans.

Zod gets around to cleaning up the forum, and the Panthers win. Coincidence? I think not. . .

I can't really think of any big plays he's given up since he's been starting for gamble the past four games. Seems like he's improved a lot from last season.

He's still playing a lot from the slot, Norman and Thomas have most of the outside duties.
