this thread is why i stayed off the normal gameday thread. you are all nuts if you think we should fire our head coach after a tie against one of the best teams in the league. i thought the playcalling was pretty good overall today.
if you want to blame someone, blame Gano, the ST, the defense, Jerricho Cotchery, and Kelvin Benjamin for all missing their opportunities.
RR is doing the best he can with the execution given and if you all cant see that, then you are all fuggin blind and hopeless as Panthers fans.
You are quite fair on those points you bring up here. Actually the only thing I'm upset about Ron is his challenging ability. I really can't remember which time he made the right challenge, it seems everytime when he throws the red flag, we will lose a timeout.
I was in Jersey to see my Grandfather and had to watch the Panthers surrounded by Iggles, Giants, and Cowboys fans. So as you can imagine when the Panthers go down 21-7 these ****** inform me "Cam is just a dumb Quarterback". There wasn't much to say with the score so I gave them the Eli face and pointed out it was the first half.
But the Giants winning suited me so we had some beers and when Greg got his TD they said "We'll see you guys in the Playoffs ".
In the playoffs? We will but I'm not sure if they will.
Great defenses rush the passer and defend the pass. You don't hear people talking about how many tackles MLBs in Seattle get. You guys make Kuechly sound like a novelty act. Yay, he made a tackle! Come on now. The media use tackle numbers only to hype players up when they have no other things to attribute to them. Enough of this if-we-win-Kuechly-must-have-done-something-great.
All I'm saying is that tackling is just doing your job. INTs, sacks, fumbles are additional things beyond your job. What is a MLB who doesn't tackle? Me, sitting on my couch. What is a DE or CB who doesn't cause turn overs? A football player. Can't keep praising a player for just doing their assignment.
