Revisiting Cam's 4 Sacks Sunday

Today, 10:00 AM

I finally caved and bought NFL Game Pass yesterday. First thing I wanted to do was take a look at the coaches film feature to see what Cam sees before taking a sack. I'm sure like most of you, I'm literally exhausted from seeing the same news about Hardy, Peterson and Rice.

As you can see, he has a WR over the middle but by this time 3 Lions players are in his face. Could he attempt this throw? Yes, he could. Is it extremely dangerous? Yes, it is. I believe Cam made the right decision by not forcing it and risking an INT.

Now we have a Lions player who has already broken through the middle. Looking downfield you see not a single WR is open or is even looking back at Cam. Again, Cam is sacked and it's hard to say this is fault.

Sack Number 3

Sack number 3 was a missed blocking assignment. The LB had a free run at Cam, Cam stood no chance here.

Again 3 Lions (both ends and tackle) have broken through, everyone but Cotchery is covered. However if you look at the safety you can tell he has started to make his break towards Cam and it'd be a very tough throw. This play came on 1st down, and there's no sense in risking a red zone INT. Cam took the sack and found Avant on the very next play for a TD.

So as you can see it's pretty easy to sit there and rage on Sunday right after Cam takes a sack. But if you take a look at what Cam's looking at, you can see a lot of it isn't his fault.

Maybe I'm over doing it with these next two but I remember how much people blew up during the playoff game when Cam took back to back sacks in the third Quarter. So I'll just post the pics and you can be the judge

A Jonathon Stewart Stat...

Yesterday, 04:53 PM

@PFF: #Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart has forced 17 missed tackles this year (T1st with DeMarco Murray). On just 28 total touches

Although his yards may not be up there, he's literally doing as much as he can with what he's presented with. The line has not done a good job with opening lanes for him. His TD run was a thing of beauty, I've loved watching a healthy Stewart play so far this year.

PFF Article: Outlook of the 2014 Season

02 September 2014 - 08:25 AM

@PFF: With a pair of second year Defensive Tackles to get excited about, what can you expect from the #Panthers in '14 https://t.co/gD9z68ACLJ

5 Reasons to be confident

4. Melvin White

An undrafted free agent a year ago, Melvin White took over one of the starting cornerback jobs midseason and heads into 2014 looking to improve in his second year. Although preseason doesn’t count, it certainly matters, and White has shown improvement from last year. White finished the preseason fifth among all cornerbacks with a +5.0 grade and with many question marks in the Panthers’ secondary, White is near the bottom of the list and thus far serves as a success story for impact undrafted free agents.

They have 5 reasons to be confident and 5 reasons to be concerned. I'm on my phone so I just took one of the reasons to be confident and put it in the OP.

49ers cut Jon Baldwin

03 August 2014 - 05:24 PM

@AdamSchefter: 49ers waived former Chiefs WR Jon Baldwin to claim WR L’Damian Washington off waivers.

He's never been able to figure it out in the NFL. The kid is still only 24 years old, turns 25 right away. Baldwin is 6'4", 230.

I can't imagine it would hurt to let Ricky give it a go with Baldwin.

2014 Rookie Class Watch

30 July 2014 - 04:21 PM

Some of us like to talk draft all year round. So thought it'd be cool to start a thread following some of the rookies we spent the last year watching. I'm more of a WR guy than anything but post anything you got on rookies in camp and so on as the year goes by.

I loved Allen Robinson as a prospect and I can honestly say when Carolina isn't playing I'm going to be watching some Jags games this year. Hearing nothing but good things about Robinson.

@JohnOehser: Very good start to training camp for Jaguars rookie WRs Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson. Each looks comfortable and consistent.

@TylerHolder15: Allen Robinson consistently beating any DB he lines up against in 11v11

Same goes for Latimer. This kid is in a great spot to succeed. He'll have almost no pressure on him to produce right away and working with Peyton never hurts.

@PSchrags: Broncos rookies Bradley Roby and Cody Latimer going at it today. Latimer just caught a big one on the first rounder. Looks good.

@PostBroncos: After only two days of #Broncos camp, one young guy has stood out. http://t.co/nXpJmJBvys by @hochman
