pretty good writeup.




#2033137 Offensive coordinator for 2013?

Posted by AntiBuc on 05 December 2012 - 07:36 PM

What about Norv. He's probably done as a HC in San Diego. Good coordinator, though and similar enough system it won't be a total overhaul for the offense.

Dives into the good and bad of the last few seasons and how he's now having fun again. Doesn't hold back when speaking of the prior coaching regime. Enjoy.

#1843416 cbssports - Steve Smith donates...still a bad guy...right?

Posted by AntiBuc on 01 August 2012 - 08:03 PM

Interesting, albeit a bit rambling, article on cbssports.com


A lot of NFL fans (not Panther fans) have long-formulated opinions that he's a bad guy. The article challenges the reader to reassess what they think of Steve Smith but doesn't draw a final conclusion.

If all you know about our #89 is his on-field awesomeness, dropping the f-bomb on a missed pass, fighting incidents, and the $100k Aurora victims contribution, you're just scratching the surface. From all I've seen, he's hyper-passionate about his profession, equally passionate about his family, and has donated a gajillion shoes via Samaritan's Feet ministry, even washing the feet of those in need. He doesn't tolerate laziness. He's all about helping kids through soccer coaching and participating in an assortment of football camps.

He thought his mansion was too pretentious, so he scaled down. Not long ago, he interned with a major financial institution to learn proper investing & money management to avoid financial ruin that plagues so many pro athletes.

I like how he issued the challenge for others to give, asking if we're here to store up our treasures or give it away to those in need. What other pro athlete is touching so many lives?

Way to go Steve. We've watched you grow and mature. You're establishing an almost incomparable legacy. We don't know the real you - just see what you do. We Panther fans love you and the rest of the world is taking notice. We can't wait to see you on Sundays this fall and look forward to the day you're in the HOF big guy.

lol epic. Nothing funnier than watching a big guy in a full sprint.

he was defended and the separation was.....well....non-existent. But he went up and got it. Drew a big round of applause. Way to go Piggie!

Are they wearing pads? If not then the Rookies have it easy.

no pads

#1617502 QB Fumble % - Cam does very well

Posted by AntiBuc on 16 January 2012 - 01:02 PM

One thing I noticed several times during the season was how Cam was very good at holding on to the ball when defenders would get to his blind side and hack at his arm or hand while he's about to throw. With most QBs, that'd be a fumble, but I was impressed with his single-handed grip on the ball. The guy must have huge mits.

That said, I looked at some stats on pro-football-reference.com and while there's no official stat for % of plays that results in a fumble for QBs, I put together an unofficial stat sheet. Obviously variables that can't be taken into consideration are the strength of o-line/protection, quick-strike passes, etc. But just to get an idea of about where the Panthers rate, here's the ranking for just QB fumbles as a % of (pass attempts + QB rush attempts). To keep the list manageable, I included only those with at least 200 pass attempts.

1 - D Brees - .15
2 - C Palmer - .58
3 - A Rodgers - .71
4 - M Stafford - .73
5 - M Hasselbeck - .74
6 - C Newton - .78
7 - M Ryan - .83
8 - A Dalton - .90
9 - T Brady - .92
10 - M Schaub - .98
11 - R Fitzpatrick - 1.12
12 - E Manning - 1.28
13 - T Romo - 1.29
14 - J Skelton - 1.32
15 - P Rivers - 1.48
16 - J Freeman - 1.49
17 - K Orton - 1.52
18 - B Roethlisberger - 1.65
19 - R Grossman - 1.67
20 - M Cassell - 1.70
21 - M Sanchez - 1.72
22 - A Smith - 1.81
23 - T Jackson - 1.84
24 - C Ponder - 1.88
25 - C Painter - 1.92
26 - M Vick - 2.00
27 - J Flacco - 2.07
28 - C McCoy - 2.10
29 - J Cutler - 2.11
30 - S Bradford - 2.67
31 - K Kolb - 2.96
32 - B Gabbert - 3.04
33 - T The Golden Calf of Bristol - 3.54
34 - M Moore - 3.69

To give you an idea of the range:

Brees had 1 fumble against 657 pass/21 QB run attempts;
Cam had 5 fumbles against 517 pass/126 QB run attempts;
Matt Moore had 14 fumbles against 347 pass/32 QB run attempts.

This is not part of the stat, but FYI, Brees had 0 fumble recoveries, Cam had 3 and Matt Moore had 3 fumble recoveries. The stat sheet doesn't indicate whether the fumbles recovered were their own or another player's fumble.

All-in-all, a pretty impressive showing for our rookie QB.

On January 1 at 5pm, JR's private jet is scheduled to take Chud and family around the world on a 2-month vacation...lots of tropical islands with no phone or internet.

#1532902 Why Get Pissed?

Posted by AntiBuc on 22 November 2011 - 11:24 PM

Just looking at how our defense has trended:

2008 - 20.6 pts/gm; 331.2 yards/gm
2009 - 19.2 pts/gm; 315.8 yards/gm
2010 - 25.5 pts/gm; 335.9 yards/gm
2011 - 28.6 pts/gm; 374.8 yards/gm

I know all teams suffer injuries, but we've been hit at the core this year - losing probowl quality players like Beason & TD. Coach RR can talk all he wants about the next guy stepping up, but Beason & TD were 1st round picks for a reason. Unless you've got a Patrick Willis waiting in the wings (crazy thought) you won't find the talent in backups to come close to the quality of our starters. And while we didn't get to see Ron Edwards, we're obviously missing what was supposed to be a pretty good player at DT.

With one caveat, I like Hurney's approach for the near term. Draft well next year and we'll have a couple star core players and some developmental players to add to those returning from injury to give this team a shot in the arm. My one disagreement with Hurney on his stated approach is free agency - I wish we would add at least one significant free agent to supplement each of the next two drafts. With Gross aging, TD's return questionable, so-so secondary, Otah's health, etc., we just have too many needs to fix this team in one draft.

DeAngelo Hall, because he's going to take a refresher course on the rules and regulations of the game....which is 89 - bottom line

Made me laugh....loved that interview!

#1457673 Panthers Outlook: 1-4

Posted by AntiBuc on 12 October 2011 - 09:51 PM

John Clayton says this year's Panthers reminds him of last year's Lions. Once they learned to win (won last 4 of the 2010 season) they haven't lost since. They started 1-4 last year and look where there are a year later.
