#1949941 Is Greg Olson overated by Panther fans?

Posted by Mr. Scot on 17 October 2012 - 06:34 PM

Underused right now. Big question is why.

On the topic of OL, no offense to John Matsko, but I'd love to see former Eagles DC Juan Castillo brought aboard as a consultant or some such.

He may have been a poor fit at DC but I recall him being a pretty good OL coach.

Guard and tackle skill sets are different A guy who isn't as effective inside might be better outside (and vice versa)

Like Bell better at guard.

Hangartner isn't great, but he's likely the best option at center.

Tackle situation? Ugh


#1948849 Rozinski

replacing hurney would be a quick fix, imo.


Only if it's with a true 'football guy' as opposed to a 'loyal soldier'.

Rivera is a hard ass at heart. But the restrictions in the new CBA make it tough for him to coach the way he'd probably like to (especially in regard to practices).

An owner that babies the players would make that even tougher.

(arguably impossible)

Sounds more like 'inmates running the asylum' than 'hands on owner'.


#1948621 Bill Cowher

Posted by Mr. Scot on 16 October 2012 - 02:10 PM

there's a reason why the steelers continued to wreck poo without a beat after cowher hit the road

his name is dick lebeau, the greatest defensive coordinator of all time.


That plus a great personnel system.

It may be all true, but I don't trust rosinski to have an unbiased view of the ownership given his history.


"Disgruntled former employee citing information from unnamed source" doesn't exactly inspire confidence in the credibility of the story for me.

I'll hear it out, but given the circumstances, a grain of salt may be in order.


#1946680 Some Perspective Being Provided Today... Perhaps?

Posted by Mr. Scot on 14 October 2012 - 06:39 PM

Fanthink rarely puts things in proper perspective.

The team is never as good as the homers believe, and never as bad as the negativists (who will all tell you they're realists) make it out to be.

Watching lots of non-Panther games can certainly help give you a more realistic basis for comparison.


#1946668 General Manager/Directors

Posted by Mr. Scot on 14 October 2012 - 06:32 PM

Until JR turns the reins over then we can do nothing but hope he hires someone that can work better with him on creating a yearly contender. I have no ill will towards Hurney, but it has run its course!


There's no real evidence to indicate Richardson is a "hands on" guy in the day to day of the team (speculative articles by WFNZ interns notwithstanding).

The issue I have with Richardson is that he seems to overvalue good working relationships, to the point that he'll forgive poor performance by a guy like Marty Hurney because the two of them work well together. Whereas other guys like Bill Polian, with whom Richardson didn't mesh at all, have less leeway.

Hurney's the same way, hence why we hold on to 'good guy's past their prime.


#1945322 Will 1-5 seal the deal?

Posted by Mr. Scot on 13 October 2012 - 11:38 AM

Why is it so hard to put together a staff that knows what the hell is going on...?


Because the owner has put his trust in a man he believes is capable of doing that, but isn't.


#1944461 Anyone else tired of Smitty?

Posted by Mr. Scot on 12 October 2012 - 12:38 AM

Smith's always been a bit of a double-edged sword. What makes him great is also what makes him rub people the wrong way sometimes.

Tired of him? Not really.

Recognizing that the end is drawing nearer for him? Yeah :(


#1944426 Who's defensive model should we follow,if we get a new regime?

Posted by Mr. Scot on 11 October 2012 - 11:34 PM

I'm perfectly fine with the current Jim Johnson scheme if it can be properly executed.


#1944424 So....here are my thoughts

Posted by Mr. Scot on 11 October 2012 - 11:32 PM

The fundamental thing is what grates on me the most.

I coach some 5th to 7th graders who put more effort into the fundamentals than some of these paid professionals do.
