#2730086 Jason Avant Visiting Panthers Monday

Posted by sanjay_rajput on 07 April 2014 - 02:18 PM

stay on the field, run the clock, sustain drives, keep our defense off the fields, consistenly drive down the field, run the ball


the less our #2 defense is on the field, the less chance the other team has to score on our #2 D




last season was a little underwelming, considering we lacked personel to run what we want to run effectively. we lacked reliable recievers with good hands. we have them now, especially if we get avant. our playmaker should still be comming in the draft.



when we had to pass, win the game at the end, a lot of times we did.




I believe the run game is going to take a major load off the offense with the help of a younger OL. The running game will be top 5  with a 1 -2 punch by Stewart and Williams, while using Tolbert for short-yardage &  goal-line. This year's draft is deep at OT & WR, the two needed position on the offense. Cam's growth at the QB position should continue as he mastered the short & intermediate throws, and this season should see the return of the deep ball. The draft gives the Panthers a option to draft WR/TE combo that gives red-zone target and explosive plays. Overall I believe the 2014 offense is going to be a progression of the 2013 with improvements in: long drives, ball control,  4th down conversion, red-zone conversion, and explosive plays.  The 2014 team is going to be balanced, with the offense and defense playing a crucial role in each other success. The defense will improve with experience, and continue to provide 3 and out for  the offense to score.

#2721953 Can Byron Bell really play left tackle and Cam survive?

Posted by sanjay_rajput on 31 March 2014 - 08:06 AM

Bell has the most experience at the Tackle position, and is the best case scenario at LT until the 2014 Draft. He needs to get conditioned this off-season for a more fluid movement whether he wins the LT position or not.

Cooks maybe! Benjamin is definitely not gonna happen. He goes against everything Gman has said. Looking for NFL ready, route specialist! That's not Benjamin.

Spot on with OL! Like last year, we beefed up the Dline and our D came to life.
Expect the same with the OLine.

"Battle is won in the trenches" isn't just some happy saying designed to calm fans that wanted the shiny hood ornament!



I would take Jordan Matthews in the 1st round who has the size and & a technician.

#2721390 Offensive Philosophy | Impact Players

Change is necessary for teams in the NFL to stay relevant each season. The Carolina Panthers are getting younger, and filling key position on the roster for a power run pro style offense much like Seattle & 49rs. The middle of the line will be anchored by the pro bowl C-Kalil who is a master technician in the run & pass game. Amini & Kugbilla provides the guard combo that has the size, strength,& athletic ability to create true run gaps, and ability to pass protect. Byron Bell provides the most experience at the Tackle position, and his strength is also in the run game. The draft will provide us another tackle that can win the LT position in the off-season, or start at the RT.



Cam Newton is developing at the QB position each season, especially as a pocket passer.  Newton went from 1 read and deep balls to  mastering the short & intermediate throws. 2011 was the most productive offense with 2 TE set & zone-read plays, while 2013 gave us a ball controlling offense. I believe the 2014 offense will be a balanced version that can sustain long drives with the run game & 2 TE set. While a "WR committee"  works the outside and provides the deep treat. 


Redzone conversion


Key Play at: 1:35  | This play is a QB power run in the A gap where  C-Kalil kicks out NT-Rodger to  LG- Amini and moves to the  2nd level block in the redzone. Amini continues the combo block by moving Rodgers away from A -gap for Newton to run through. This is the kind of  guard | Center combo relationship you need in the power run game. The run committee provides a niche for each player with Stewart being the lead back and Williams for change of pace. While FB-Tolbert provides a weapon for the short-yardage & screens. After the 2014 draft the Panthers will have a balanced offense with improvement in the run and & pass game.

#2713284 Guards in 2014: Silatolu and Kugbila?

Posted by sanjay_rajput on 23 March 2014 - 11:47 AM

I wonder what is going on at RG  We re-signed Scott and we know what Chandler can do there.  They re-signed Garry Williams, a player who has held that position in the past as the starter.  We have big bodied, Long-armed Travis Bond who is listed as a T but played G in college and here last year.  That is 5 players (Scott, Bond, Chandler, Williams, and Kugbila) who can play RG, and 4 have experience there.  Who knows, they could bring in someone, but I think they feel the position is covered--just don't know who is covering.


Our Guard depth is pretty solid, Amini is a given starter at LG, but I believe Kugbilla will win the RG position. He has the size, length, and athletic ability to play better than Scott & Chandler especially in the run game. Having sat out a season will give him motivation and familiarity with the offense. I believe we use Chandler & Williams at the Tackle position, which is better suited for  their skill set. 

#2707977 Byron Bell--the good

Posted by sanjay_rajput on 20 March 2014 - 08:26 AM

[quote name="kunu" post="2707818" timestamp="1395312940"]

So let's talk about the elephant in the room on the offensive line: Byron Bell

-99% of this board and it seems even our casual fans think he's just not a good RT.
-He constantly gets beat by edge rushers and looks just fricken' lost at times
-He's young, I would say good depth for a team, but I just have to be missing something

Our staff seems to have soo much faith in the kid; even giving him a chance to start at LT this coming season. I just want any huddler out there to be as unbiased as possible and fill me in on what apparently the majority of us are missing. I'm no expert by any means when it comes to good offensive line play and would just love to get educated on why I should be hopeful as our staff is

for this guy.

Much appreciado,

Having played in college I'll do my best to give as unbiased an opinion on his play as possible judging from the 3 games I still have saved on my DVR, the first niners game, the saints home game, and the playoff game.

Being an offensive lineman starts from the ground up, bell has pretty quick feet for a 300LB tackle but tends to over step and get unbalanced at time. This is a coachable fix but considering how long he's been on the roster I'd like to think they'd have addressed the issue already. Playing OL is all about having a good solid base, your power comes from your legs, no matter how much you bench if you don't have a powerful base your done. If there's one very solid thing a bout Byron he has power, if he gets his hands on a defender while run blocking then they're done and often times out of the picture, however often times like I said he over steps himself causing him to get unbalanced and sloppy.

The most noticeable problem is his pass blocking. What I notice most his his lack of cutting the distance between him and the defender. Instead of stepping into the defender CUTTING THE DISTANCE between him and the DE, he steps back and allows the defender to come to him. This allows the defender to generate all the power, and set him up for moves that were so evident in the bills and playoff game. Also a coachable fix, cutting the distance and engaging the defender in pass pro, slows down the DE's advance, giving them less time to generate power to bull rush and keeping yourself balanced and powerful, with a solid base, instead of what constantly happens to bell, where he ends up starlight up and down, unbalanced, and dominated.

I don't think all hope is lost for Byron, all his downgrades are coachable fixes however in my opinion I don't see him ever being anything more than an ok RT. If he's our answer at LT I have serious concerns going forward. But I admit I'm simply a fan, I don't get paid to do this nor do I claim to be an expert. This is my humble opinion. Gman and Rivera get paid millions because they are pretty good at what they do, I respect and put faith in their decisions.


Ron Rivera needs to hire Jordan Gross as assistant OL coach. I remember watching video on Panther.com about  gross breaking down techniques playing LT. He is a master technician that can teach the younger players already having familiarity with them.

#2706429 Current Roster Players | Offensive Production.

Posted by sanjay_rajput on 19 March 2014 - 11:55 AM

2013 Total Offense 5,069 yds | TDs- 42


Total Rushing: 2,026 yds


Total Passing: 3,043 yds



Retained Passing: Greg Olsen- 816yds | Tolbert- 184 | Williams- 333 | Stewart- 44 | = 1,377yds  | 8 TD's


Retained Rushing: Williams- 843yds | Newton- 585yds | Tolbert- 361yds | Stewart- 180yds | others- = 1,969yds | 14TD's 



Lost Passing production in FA: 1,666yds & 15 TD's  < FA signing & Draft 



The remaining personnel accounts for 65 % of the offense production at 3,302 + yds & 22 TDs. The 2014 season will have a healthy Stewart and young & improved OL. With Cam having a ankle surgery the backfield should take on a bigger role for short yardage & goal line situation. I believe the run game and 2 TE set will be leaned heavily on for ball control. In 2013 Cam became a better passer with improvement in short and intermediate throws that sustained long methodical drives. 2014 should bring back the deep ball for a more explosive offense.



I believe the run game can go up to 3,000 yds in 2014 with Stewart getting 1,000 as the feature back, Williams for change of pace and Tolbert for short yardage & goal line. K. Barner can be the main return guy for development. 


#2702280 Offensive Draft Phiosophoy | 2 TE Set & WR

Posted by sanjay_rajput on 17 March 2014 - 12:35 PM

After last week FA frenzy, we are are overhauling the offense with youth via draft. This has been a successful strategy, turning our weakness into a strength like the DL. The 2014 is a deep draft in OL/ WR the two biggest need for the team. With Gross retiring, the LT position is wide open. One possible candidate is Amini Silatolu who is athletic and has experience playing LT in his college days. | http://www.nfl.com/d...tolu?id=2532947 | 2 TE set was the most productive offensive scheme for Newton and makes it a easier transition for the younger OT. Sitting at 28 we aren't in position to draft a starting caliber LT.  





FA Signing: James Jones |  Sidney Rice 


June 1st Cut: Godfrey




1st- WR | Kelvin Benjamin 6'-5" 240lbs |  http://www.nfl.com/d...amin?id=2543471


2nd- LG | Gabe Jackson 6'-3" 336lbs |  http://www.nfl.com/d...kson?id=2543733

7th- C | Zack Kerin 6'-5" 308lbs 






OL: LT- Amini | LG- Jackson | C- Kalil | RG- Kugbilla | RT- Bell


RB: Stewart | Williams


FB: Tolbert | Zordich 


TE: Olsen | Lynch | Williams

LB: OLB- Klein | MLB- Kuechly | OLB- Davis


CB: Baptiste | White |  Nickel CB -Cokrell


S: Lester | Harper


K: Gano | Nortman


Return man: Barner 




P.S.  some position can be interchanged based on BPA and players available at the pick. The point is we are in a good position with the players on the roster to mold a offense that can fit our Philosophy and Improve the team.


Other Options:  WR - Cooks, OBJ, Matthews | Landry

                         OL- Kouandjio | Martin | Richardson  

                         TE- ASJ | Amaro

Posted by sanjay_rajput on 13 March 2014 - 05:45 PM

he may very well, but I didn't want to include him because we don't know what we have with him.  We do have quality RBs, whether people want to admit it, or not.


Our OL sucked last year and their run blocking skills where pretty horrible but we still managed to be top 10 in rushing. I believe this year with Amini | Kalil | Kugbilla we will have size, youth and leadership in the OL to have a real rushing attack with a healthy Stewart.

and a probowl C

and a probowl level K

and a probowl level P

and a poo ton of quality OG

and a Tugboat

and Olsen


we're the same fuggin place we have been all year.  in need of OT, DB and WR.  nothing's changed.


I believe Stewart will have a huge impact this year with a healthy off-season and young interior OL. I'm willing to bet he gets a 1,000yds this season.

#2692142 Ginn to Arizona, 3 yr deal

Posted by sanjay_rajput on 13 March 2014 - 05:07 PM

No tears here. He had hands of stone and has been tossed from three teams now. We will get Nicks and two good WRs in the draft. More concerned with tackle.


We might be able to get a cheap FA for tackle position but its probably better to draft one at this point talent wise, cap, and long term. We are gonna have to draft all on the offensive side in this draft and get some FA for the secondary. The good news is that we should be able to get 5 starters from this draft whether they are ready or not.
