#3003215 O-Line\No Huddle

Posted by iamhubby1 on 06 October 2014 - 06:07 PM

I think 75% is a bit too high. We need to pick our spots wisely

IMO, you can still use the no huddle without speeding the game up. Just because you are in no huddle doesn't necessarily mean you have to snap the ball with 20 seconds still on the clock.

When you get a Defense in certain personnel groupings you want to exploit, then use it. Or when you want to get Cam into a rhythm, use it. Or maybe even when the Defense is looking tired, use it to wear them out even more.

The point being, you can speed the game up, or not, using the no huddle. And it can actually help your Offense out as well.

getting whooped at the point of attack and whiffing on blocks isn't shooting yourself in the foot...it's being a bad football player

Yup. The only ones making mistakes this year is the O-line.

12 men on the field negates a Red Zone 1st down.

12 men on the field negates a punt and give Pitt a 1st down.

Muffed punt for a TD.

Pass Interference negates a punt.

Block in the back negates a 1st down and we get a FG.

Missed tackles and gap assignments hurting the Defense.

Yup, the only ones making mistakes are the O-line.

#2991349 Top 4 reasons for current losing streak

Posted by iamhubby1 on 30 September 2014 - 09:58 PM

I kinda agree, and disagree.
This team can't score points, haven't been able to in a couple seasons.  We mess up a few plays, and our O can't overcome it.
I think it's more scheme than leadership.

To me this is the one thing that is different from last year. We seem to make more mistakes, at the worst time, than we did last year.

I know we made mistakes last year. But not like this. We have made more mistakes already this year than all of last year put together.

We need to get back to playing Panther football. Disciplined football. And quit making all these dumb mistakes.

Dude, I'm on your side here, but I'm gonna have to step in (if somebody already hasn't)...
Being ambulatory is a GOOD THING.
Being ambulatory means you have the capability to be up and about and to walk.
The opposite of ambulatory is bed-ridden.
If Cam is ambulatory, that is GOOD.  It means he can move around.
You OK now?   :lol:

I know. I fugged up on that one. Oops

#2988254 When will Cam heal?

Posted by iamhubby1 on 29 September 2014 - 12:44 PM

it is the topic at hand. as long as there is a discussion it keeps going. All the talk was in the context of a nagging injury.If playing made it worse and prevented healing then sitting him is not a bad idea.
 What other agenda I stated my point clearly and have not strayed from it.

The problem is. Plenty of posters have given you lots of reasons/explanations of why this line of thinking is just worrying over nothing. Yet you continually ignore every piece of evidence given to you.

There is no reason medically or physically to sit him.

Hence, why people feel you have some ulterior motive behind wanting to sit Cam.

#2988082 When will Cam heal?

Posted by iamhubby1 on 29 September 2014 - 12:00 PM

Judging by his little half speed scamper  yesterday, that may be true.
He hadn't really done, looked like that way before (even on previous runs). He may not had been at full explosiveness. But he had that surefooted, "I can out juke you out of your shoes if I wanted to" Cam Newton look and steadiness.
And regarding your ESPN comment: I hope ESPN is not making it all about CAM's injury, as if he hasn't been throwing the ball very well from the pocket and making good decisions--which he has, once again not placing blame (as they never do with all things Cam) on the responsible parties--such as the the RB's, the OL, and Shula.

That one play where he spun out of a sack, drifted to his left, than floated a perfect pass to...damm, I forgot who, was pretty.

He is getting better every week. But it is going to a gradual thing.

#2988067 When will Cam heal?

Posted by iamhubby1 on 29 September 2014 - 11:56 AM

He is getting better every week. Every Sunday he is better than the one before.

But he won't be fully recovered until next year.

The sooner we quit play those pesky 3-4 teams, the sooner we can get back to...normal for us?

#2987894 Anderson is a better option than Cam right now

Posted by iamhubby1 on 29 September 2014 - 11:10 AM

no offense, but you are conveniently ignoring a lot of key factors here.  most notably the oline and running backs situation.  cam has played "dinged" up before for sure.  maybe not this dinged up, but we know he's tough.  what he hasn't done is play this dinged up behind the worst oline in football with practice squad caliber running backs.  
it is just a recipe for disaster, if you ask me, and it's one that could be somewhat mitigated by sitting cam for a month or so until he is a lot closer to being the escaping pressure, scrambling cam of old.  he's basically a sitting duck out there without having much ability to run.  his footwork breaks down and he just looks all out uncomfortable at times behind that line.  you can tell in his body language that he'd rather be just about anywhere else than taking snaps behind that line.

He is having the best passing year of his life.

Lots of immobile QBs make it through the season.

He is medically cleared.

He is dinged up. He is no danger of long term health issues.

If there were ANY indications he could make his injuries worse, he would not be allowed to play.

He could get hurt at any time. Whether he is a 100% or not.

Cam wants to play, and he is medically cleared to do so.

As long as the Panthers are in the position to need to win. Cam will be our QB. When the season is over, then they may sit him. But even then I doubt it would happen.

I don't see 1 reason to sit Cam.

Just because a handful of fans want him to sit is not going to make it happen.

I give up. All you panting to have Cam sit win. Sit Cam, call the season over. Why not? Let a few fans have their wish and get Cam off the field.

the chat room during the game yesterday was unreal...the guy who posted the jameis winston quote should be dealt with harshly. and that's all he had to say, nothing else.

To be honest. When things are going badly, and I mean immediately after something bad happens. I leave the Huddle until after the game. It just ain't worth the headache.

And it isn't just the chat room. Threads pop up at the drop of the ball. I used to find it humorous. Now? Not so much. I enjoy my football. And it is damm difficult to enjoy it when folks go all...goofy.

#2987529 Anderson is a better option than Cam right now

Posted by iamhubby1 on 29 September 2014 - 09:06 AM

No, I disagree. I have played this game at a very high level and I understand the implications of sitting your starting QB. 
I don't know what the right move might be, but it's hard watching that young man back there, obviously hurt - maybe even a little injured, not able to protect himself while this oline allows 3 of 4 pass rushers into the backfield in less than 2 seconds. 
If Cam was healthy - no brainer. He has to play with the cards DG dealt him. But, Cam is trying to extend plays in ways he just can't right now. And if anyone that has watched the past 3 games, can not see Cam is not himself, then you haven't been watching the past 3 years. He is a dynamic runner and one of the most elusive players in the league when healthy. Right now, DA looks just as elusive as Cam. And that can get this kid hurt.

I agree with almost everything you say. The only thing I differ with you on is letting Cam play. If the doctors, coaches, and Cam all feel he can play without making anything worse. Why not let him play. If they thought he could be put in danger, they would probably not let him play.

Cam is a big, tough kid. He wants to play. As long as there is no significant injury worries, and he continues to play as well as he has. Let him play.

To my knowledge, the only folks worried about Cam getting hurt worse than he is. Are the fans. Let the guys who know the situation make the decision.

If Cam was playing poorly because of the injuries, maybe I would be with you on sitting him. But he is playing so well, let him continue.

#2985430 Anderson is a better option than Cam right now

Posted by iamhubby1 on 28 September 2014 - 05:06 PM

I get what you mean, but that decision likely costs you - at the least - a couple of games. It could conceivably be seen as an acknowledgement that this year is a wash.

Are we far enough along in this season that you're comfortable with that?

It has gotten to the point where it really is a waste of time to try and explain things to folks anymore. They have these goofy thoughts, like sitting Cam, and you cannot sway them.

It is the same after every loss. Emotional over-reactions lead to goofy azz comments. No one has any patience anymore. They deserve it now, and by God you had better give it to them.

You can't blame everything on Madden. Some blame has to go to just not caring enough to learn the game. Have interwebz, and there is no need for knowledge.

#2985385 Anderson is a better option than Cam right now

Posted by iamhubby1 on 28 September 2014 - 05:01 PM

All I read was "I want *insert white QB's name here* to start".

That's basically what this garbage boils down to for people like the OP.

Dude, you have gone off the deep end. Did your wife leave you? Did your dog die? Car break down?

Always the first to bring up race. Nothing about football, just snarky azz comments. Not that you were ever that good to begin with. But you have really gone down in flames lately.


#2985253 Anderson is a better option than Cam right now

Posted by iamhubby1 on 28 September 2014 - 04:45 PM

But, I never liked Cam. So now is the perfect time to ride his azz.

#2980375 89 Conference Call

Posted by iamhubby1 on 27 September 2014 - 06:53 PM

see i have no problem in what you stated, people who want to dig up dirt i'm going to make them work to prove there point.
lol it's as simple as that
as far as the giants game he made a mistake IMO, there's been numerous times he's bragged to the media about Cam as well.....i vaguely remember him sayng in a interview he didn't want to sell cam short because his potential is out the roof. As far as demanding the ball I disagree there, last years stats proves that i do think in game on the lie situations he does demand the ball but what good receivers doesn't.
come sunday he's in the way to what we are trying to accomplish, but people don't have go out there way to spew bs on a guy who played here 13 years

Normally, most on here are pretty level headed about Smitty. But, you get into threads like this, and you have posters like heel acting like a spoiled child. Folks get defensive. Then the arguing starts.

Keep the idiot posters out of a Smitty thread and it can be civil. But the Smitty lovers who just KNOW how things should be, and it get heated.

Almost every Huddler loves/loved Smitty. But the few who can't let it go, get the rest going.
