#1895012 Ron Riveria can't coach..

Posted by ladypanther on 10 September 2012 - 07:05 PM

I was very disappointed yesterday. But, I think it is way too early to say Rivera is a bad coach. I hope both he and Chud learned something yesterday. They were not the only coaches whose teams did not live up to expectations yesterday.

It will be important to see how this team responds.

#1890028 Great Article on JR and Cam

Posted by ladypanther on 08 September 2012 - 06:18 PM

You should be ashamed for mocking. Johnny U was an awesome QB. Back then...the QB called the plays. For JR to compare Cam to a legend is awesome.

#1889619 From the Tampa Tribune

A couple of interesting articles:

A year ago, teams were generally impressed with the Rutgers defense. Using what has been described as an attack-oriented scheme, the Scarlet Knights led the Big East in total defense, scoring defense and pass defense.
The Bucs, who ranked 30th in total defense in 2011, will strive for similar results — and in much the same way. The scheme has been described by players as very aggressive and attack-oriented, particularly up front.

"It's totally different from what we've done in the past,'' left end Michael Bennett said. "Last year and the year before we tried to read the play and then react to it. This year, we're just going and trying to make the play as we go, and I like that. I like the pressure, the freedom to just go.''

The linebackers will have similar assignments. Instead of hanging back on the second level and trying to diagnose the play as they did under former defensive bosses Raheem Morris and Monte Kiffin, they will attack the line of scrimmage to force plays backward or sideways.


Panthers QB Cam Newton is an eclipsing figure. Now entering just his second season in the league, he possesses a skill set so vast and threatening it blocks out virtually everything else around him.

He certainly commands more attention from the media than any other Panthers player, but football teams like the Buccaneers cannot afford to have such a singular focus.

Though Newton has commanded a great deal of their attention, the Bucs are just as worried about some of the players around Newton, particularly the three running backs working behind him.

"I think it will be a major challenge for us,'' Bucs defensive coordinator Bill Sheridan said of stopping Panthers running backs DeAngelo Williams, Jonathan Stewart and Mike Tolbert.

"Completely outside of the quarterback run game, out of the shotgun, that you always have to worry about with Cam, their conventional running attack is outstanding.''

Stewart probably won't play. He left the Panthers' Aug. 27 preseason game against the Jets with an ankle injury and did not practice again on Thursday, meaning he likely will miss Sunday's game.

What remains, though, is a formidable duo. Williams ran for 836 yards last year, but he averaged 5.4 yards per carry. Tolbert, meanwhile, has long been considered one of the league's best third-down options.

"Williams alone is an outstanding running back, and Tolbert creates another threat,'' Sheridan said. "He can run the ball and he's a very physical blocker and pass catcher, so outside the guns runs with Newton, they pose a real, real challenge for our front seven just with their conventional run game.''


Freeman's interceptions soared from six to 22 and the Bucs finished 4-12. The 2009 first-round pick out of Kansas State admittedly tried to do too much, forcing too many passes into too many tight windows as Tampa Bay repeatedly fell behind early.

Enter new coach Greg Schiano and Ron Turner, Freeman's third quarterback coach in his four NFL seasons.

"Coach Schiano talks about it all the time — the ball, the ball, the ball,'' Freeman said. "It's all about protecting the ball and winning the turnover battle. That's where our minds are at. The ultimate goal throughout the game is to protect the football.''

To help in their long-range evaluation of Freeman, the Bucs surrounded him with more offensive talent in the offseason.

Chris Berman has us losing 20-19, his "upset" special.

That link showed 12 of 14 ESPN "experts" picked the Panthers to win. Berman not in that group.

Did not expect that. In years past Zod has told us the Panthers were worse than we thought. This one is nice.

I do think this team will surprise some people, but obviously not Zod.

I think the key to this will be turnovers.
