#3031916 Can we ever become a great team with Rivera at the helm

Posted by FootballMaestro on 19 October 2014 - 09:41 PM

Look at the Cowboys. They aren't that much more talented than they were last year when their defense was horrendous. Obviously they got a new coordinator in there and Garrett doesn't have his hands on his defense, but it shows you don't need top flight talent everywhere to succeed. Defense is suppose to be Riveras bread and better and I would like to think we have more talent on defense than Dallas (obviously their run game helps in terms of defense), yet we can't even be average. Hardy is a great player, but one guy doesn't suddenly make you a bottom 5 defense.

 

If Rivera had half of brain, he would have realized his defense wasn't that good this year, and stop having so much faith in it.

 

He keeps thinking 2014 is 2013. And it's obviously not!

No!

 

Rivera's too loose a coach in so many ways.

 

He's bad at time management. He's usually not aggressive enough. Plays for FG too much, even when he shouldn't. Team seems undisciplined this year. Though he's a defensive coach, his teams have had way too many game losing lapses; if not outright bad, such as 2011 and 2014. He usually doesn't make the tough decisions with staff. And it goes on and on.

 

Once again; no!




#3031327 The Seattle game *should* be a good game to watch next week?!?!?

Posted by FootballMaestro on 19 October 2014 - 06:47 PM

I hope he prepares the team.. this team looked un-prepared today! Starting to wonder the teams have figured the panthers plays out and the coaches are unwilling to adjust! But I think Pete Carroll will bring a can a whoop ass after the loss and the questionable release of Percy.. Caroilina needs this win or playoffs are done!

 

I agree.

 

That string of defensive penalties that could have got Carolina off the field 3 and out-GB's first three series, but instead extended GB was unforgivable. You really gotta wonder what's going on?

 

That run play at the end of the half, which cost the Panthers precious seconds, is something we see from Rivera coached teams all the time, unfortunately. He just not the brightest bulb in a dim light shop.

Didn't, the Refs take away two TD passes from him because of "Aggression"? :cool:

 

Just saying? :startle:

Thats guts. Thats playing to win. RR should learn!!!

 

I wrote the same thing.

 

Yeah, if you miss, you lose and get criticized!

 

However, if you get it, you keep moving the chains, and/or secure the win for your team, by keeping the ball out of Seattle's hand.

Looked to me like, again, Rivera was PLAYING FOR THE FIELD GOAL.

 

He has no aggressiveness in him.  He's Coach Milquetoast.

 

Well, if that was the case, it was sad. Because the Panthers ended up inside the 20 yard line anyway. They could have really used those precious 30 secs or so.

Yeah the Stewart run killed any chance we had to score on that drive. Shula is never gonna get it as long as he is the OC of this team.

 

And to be clear: I was yelling at my TV set, the moment Cam handed it off to him.

 

And of course, those precious seconds, cost the Panthers any chance of scoring (along with Rivera's Dum Dum decision to kick a FG, just to get some points on the board).

Understand the sentiment but they had to there considering how badly the clock was managed.

Worst half of Panthers football since 2010... maybe ever... That was a joke

 

So why exactly did they hand the ball off to Stewart then, burning off about 30 precious secs?

I can't believe Rivera kicked a FG.

 

Maybe, if they didn't run the ball earlier with Stewart, they could have used those precious 30 secs to score?? :phew:

Yes, it looks nice on the scoreboard. However, it's not giving you a chance to win any better. SMH




#3026848 Extremely tired of hearing about Luck.

Posted by FootballMaestro on 19 October 2014 - 11:35 AM

I think it will great if we all can stop talking about Cam vs whoever, media disrespect, etc. and watch some football and enjoy it. All that other crap is filler between games. Let's focus on the fun part for a change...

 

Agreed. And today's game is almost here.

 

I saw the segment. And I don't mind giving someone else compliments. However, I think Panthers fans don't like when things such as 'Luck is more cerebral, and the other guys are more physical' are said. That's just not true. Cam is close/closer to what they say luck is, and not the other guys. That's what gets peoples gander (besides the all out On Their Knees suckage sometimes). It is what it is. Lol.

 

Luckily, the game starts soon.




#3025675 Ron Jaworski on Cam Newton

Posted by FootballMaestro on 18 October 2014 - 08:59 AM

Cam has never been a run first qb. I'm tired of people thinking he was.

 

Agreed! :thumbsu:

 

From the moment he stepped into the NFL, Newton's had this uncanny ability to stand tall and stoically in the pocket (whether he locked on to a receiver or not), then run at-seemingly always the right time--when the line broke down, and/or his receivers were locked up.

 

Cam was always a "Pocket QB", who also had uncanny/unreal "running ability" since his arrival. But he wasn't a run QB first.

 

Ironically, smart Panther fans been saying from day one that Newton was a better pocket QB (and still is) than Kaepernick, RG3, and Russell Wilson, and that's only proven to be true each year each they have been in the league.
