#3003847 Don't hold your breath for more no huddle offense...

Posted by Cyberjag on 07 October 2014 - 07:33 AM

I fully expect Shula to downplay his plans to use a no-huddle or to use a huddle in any interview.  I don't expect any coach to tell a reporter what he's planning to run more of going forward, ever.




#2991759 PFT: Bears might rather face Newton

Posted by Cyberjag on 01 October 2014 - 09:16 AM

Florio is basing this on a characterization of Cam being a "young, mobile quarterback" in the mold of a Geno Smith or a Colon Kaepernick.  However, Cam has better accuracy and has always been a pass-first guy, which seems to be lost on a lot of these media types.

 

If I had to guess, I would think that Trestman couldn't be happier to face Anderson over Newton.  But Florio was smart enough to recycle football news and snark before anyone else, so maybe he's on to something here.

If you're risking your job on a Shula offense, there's no way anyone can say you're not a gambler.  The name stays...




#2975611 The struggle against the 3-4 is real

Posted by Cyberjag on 23 September 2014 - 10:31 PM

So, am I the only one here who thinks that if we played Pittsburgh again this Sunday we would spank them, and spank them hard?  We didn't lose because of the defense they played, we lost because our defense gave up 23 points and we lost another 7 on special teams.  When we had to, we moved the ball well.  Sure, we gave up on the run too soon, and we surrendered a lot of sacks, but all in all it wasn't the offense that lost the game for us.

 

Here's a news flash.  Every team in the league plays a 3-4 front at times.  Some teams play it as their base defense, but even they go 4-3 at times, and yes, they have nickel packages where they send 4 linemen and drop into max coverage.  Some teams like a 4-3 front, but even those sometimes drop a DE back into coverage or line them up at an OLB position.  It's all about how you disguise what you're doing, and how much you can confuse the offensive line.  And Pittsburgh confused the poop out of our OL this past Sunday.  How else are you gonna explain Kalil getting beat for two sacks?  Or three guys consistently beating five?

 

On our OL we have Bell and Kalil as our veteran leadership.  We have Chandler, who was playing on the other side a couple years ago.  Turner is going to be a star in 2017, but he's a rookie now.  And Amini may as well be, for how much actual playing time he has.  Dick LeBeau knows this, and took advantage.  It won't happen again.

 

3-4 or 4-3, it doesn't matter.  We officially have an embarrassed and angry offensive line, and I expect them to be MUCH better in Baltimore this weekend.  The defense too, but who's really worried about them anyway?




#2964244 Can you relate?

Posted by Cyberjag on 19 September 2014 - 09:04 AM

I do feel bad for the Bucs, because they went out and got a "name" coach instead of a good coach, just like we did with Seiffert.  That almost never works in the NFL. 

 

I also feel contempt for the Falcons.  When you're beating down someone that bad, you go to the running game and eat up clock.  You don't chuck bombs.  That kind of crap has karma attached to it, and I can't wait until it comes back to haunt them.




#2964117 Our expansion brethren

Posted by Cyberjag on 19 September 2014 - 07:31 AM

I don't know if this was posted before the season started, but at the beginning of our 20th year, the Panthers and Jaguars have both won 144 games and lost 160.  The Panthers have a 6-5 playoff record, the Jaguars 5-6.  They've had more winning seasons and playoff appearances than we have at 7 and 6 vs. 5 and 5, but we have a Superbowl appearance and they do not.  In head to head games, they hold a 3-2 edge.

 

For those of you who remember how much it sucked in the late 90s to watch them sustain their success while we paid for the Sean Gilbert trade and Rae Carruth, it's kind of nice to think that we've not only caught up to them, we have already passed them this year, and look to surge ahead over the next few.

The Charlotte Observer has content?

Peter King has an agenda, he's not a journalist.




#2953450 Questions about today's game...

Posted by Cyberjag on 14 September 2014 - 09:06 PM

KB reminded us that he's a rookie, and at the same time showed us that he's going to be special.

 

As far as the guards, Donkey Kong got three tackles.  How do you think they did?




#2952935 Costas blasts Panthers over handling of Hardy situation

Posted by Cyberjag on 14 September 2014 - 07:04 PM

It would be really difficult for me to care less about what Costas thinks than I do now.  Although, I wonder what he will say if Hardy is found innocent.  I bet that if it happens, the world will never know.




#2946985 Any news on Frank Alexander?

Posted by Cyberjag on 13 September 2014 - 07:55 AM

Does the new drug policy affect his suspension?  I haven't seen any news on this, just curious.




#2946039 National Interest in Hardy just ended....

Posted by Cyberjag on 12 September 2014 - 03:55 PM

Adrian Peterson's situation is completely different from  Greg Hardy's.  No one is starting Hardy on their fantasy team this weekend.




#2934823 Panthers '14 O on like Donkey Kong: rookie sensation KB: 92 yds; Proven...

Posted by Cyberjag on 07 September 2014 - 07:32 PM

While you're busy being excited at the possibilities, consider these two unremarkable factoids...

 

Ed Dickson didn't get a target that I saw.

Stephen Hill is in the capable hands of Ricky Proehl, and while he may not be as good as KB, he's good enough to line up across from him once he learns the playbook.

 

Supposedly the Tampa D-line is pretty good. If it is, then our O-line is a hell of a lot better than anyone thought it would be.  I can see this team having a pretty damned good offense by November.  And who would have thought that?

Is there anything more satisfying than reading a rival's message board after you beat them up?

Amazingly enough, it wasn't a Gantt article.
