#2990265 A big play offense (minus the big plays)

Posted by sanjay_rajput on Today, 09:48 AM

Heard Troy Aikman while he was calling another game last week refer to that team's offense as "a big play offense with no big plays". 


Couldn't help but think "Man, that's pretty much us too" :(


The Panthers do indeed run a 'big play' offense; specifically, a Coryell offense.  For those who have heard that term thrown around here but aren't sure what it means, here's a basic primer:


The Coryell Offense (sometimes called Air Coryell) is based on vertical, downfield passing supplemented by a strong running game. The idea is to have a multidimensional attack so that the opposing defense can't concentrate on simply stopping one thing or covering one area of the field.  It's considered a 'big play' offense, meaning that you might see three or four modest plays suddenly followed by a huge chuck down the field for a bunch of yards and maybe a score.


So what sorts of things do you need to make that kind of attack work?


- Deep threat receivers with great hands (helps a lot of they can block too)

- Solid pass catching tight ends and slot receivers to attack the middle

- A combination of power runningbacks and speed/pass catching backs

- An offensive line that's strong in both run and pass blocking

- A quarterback that can air it out and makes good decisions


So looking at that little grocery list, tell me what we have and what we lack.


Which of these aspects are we most set at, and which just aren't there at all?



We have: TEs,  1 Deep treat, RB combo,semi- OL, and a GOAT QB.

we need to mix the calls up can't run it 10 times a row

We need the interior OL to play better if Panthers are going to have any success in the run game . They have the talent and instincts to dominate at the line of scrimmage, just need to get the chemistry right!

#2936367 Along thought about yesterday's game, I honestly loved it!

If it was that easy, everybody would do it.

The Panthes are exactly designed to do this ..once Cam is back out scoring will be even higher ...we left about 14 points off the board with small mistakes

This is a good reason for a bad performance, but he should rest then.


The sample size is to small to make a decision on the OT's and the rest of the OL. The Chiefs front 7  is going to be a good test with longer playing time for the starters.

A better Bell is still like buying a used car. You have no idea what you're going to get, you just hope and pray the wheels don't fall off the second you drive off the lot.



Unless its a company certified used car!!!

#2874329 Video of Kuechly stuffing Tolbert

Posted by sanjay_rajput on 02 August 2014 - 04:09 PM

I'm never sure how to feel about these videos. On the one hand Kuechly made a great play but on the other our fullback couldn't score from the 1.



I believe offense score couple of TD in the red-zone drill before this happened.

I don't want the planet to break in half if cam and luke hit each other


Luke got the job done but Tolbert still fell forward and almost crossed the goal line. The fullback should have picked up Luke in the gap instead of going to the left. Due to Cam's body length IMO he  would have crossed the line. 



Cam > Luke

Please paste tweets and observations here.


Also, please serve up pie to anyone who spends the time doing so. They are going above and beyond the call of huddle duty.


If you get a chance post pic of DL vs OL  .... Star vs Turner, Amini vs KK ...etc

Jesus some of you people are sick ^^^  He is the 2nd best tackle on the team otherwise coaches would have given the opportunity to someone else. Hope its a tweak and nothing serious.

#2864844 Cam Fully Cleared; Stewart Out 1-2 Weeks

Posted by sanjay_rajput on 25 July 2014 - 06:11 PM

There was a stretch where chud kept calling these read option plays, and Dwill struggled with the style or whatever of the play coming out of shotgun or what not. Stew seemed a bit more comfortable and used to it, and generally got a little more yards. (Used to the read option in college)

Not saying Dwill isn't as good as Stew, but during that read option spell he was a bit better for those plays. What I'm trying to get at is a healthy Stew would be a benifit and boost the run game this year. All of our running backs have talent and have different styles. As a defense preparing for these different styles is just another thing to worry about


J-Stew is a better fit for the power scheme we try to run than D-will and Tolbert  due to his combination of speed and power. The hamstring injury seems to be minor and will only set him back 1-2 weeks but he will still participate in some activity. I'm hoping for a speedy recovery and a huge season with the help of Amini-Kalil-Turner. 

#2853001 NFL.com: Cam Newton primed to regress

Posted by sanjay_rajput on 15 July 2014 - 09:37 PM

This likely could be the weakest supporting cast Cam has seen.....going in our OL, WRs and traditional rush are all 3 perceived as the worst Cam has seen

That is reason to believe the O takes a step back.....and Cam will take the blame (fair or unfair)


I disagree we have upgraded or equal value to  just about every position beside the LT. Its not like we lost 7 pro bowlers  With the return of a healthy Stewart and addition of Turner our running game is far better than last years. Throw in the account the progression of Newton and this offense will be better than last years. 


Returners: Olsen, Tolbert, Williams, &  # 2 defense. 


Jordan Gross > Chandler


Amini =/ > Wharton


KB = Smith 


Cotchery = Lafell


Underwood < Ginn 

#2845577 Do you think we can get the number one seed.this year?

Posted by sanjay_rajput on 10 July 2014 - 08:31 PM

Do any of you guys know why they use the word seed?



You mean playoffs? If so yes we can!
