Winning pointless games.....doesn't answer any of the questions or counter the flaws Rivera has shown over the course of two seasons.
Questions about Rivera have always been how he coaches in games that matter......and he has made poor decisions in most of those. What happens now doesn't say much about Rivera......says more about the players.
Bringing back a coach who only plays aggressive in meaningless games...,.still leaves us losing the ones that matter by him coaching scared next year
Now that they have announced Piggy is out. We have a zero percent chance of winning this game.... Say hello to what potentially could be the worst OL play you have witnessed in a couple years this weekend.
i know we're all fans here, but c'mon, three games? so, out of less than 20% of our games on the season, cam is tearing it up? big whoop. now i'm saying that it's all on him, lord knows it can't be with chud-snapandgointobatshitcrazymodewhenwegodownbymorethanonepoint-zinski at the helm. but we should probably tuck our tails at this point in the season. just a dose of humility, i guess.
go back and look at his last 10 games then
19 TDs, 5 INTs....and lead us in rushing most weeks.
If we have had an average run game, OL play and ST.....we would have been rolling. Like last year, not enough play at a high enough level to just help him out.
The stat that says it all for me is that in Cam's 2 years, we have never won a game where he has thrown an INT. We have lost some where he didn't throw a pick but never won one. That tells me if he makes any kind of mistake we are doomed and he has to be almost perfect just for a win. Can you imagine how few games we would won with Jake if we only won when he didn't throw a pick??
Both Luck and RGIII have had the team pick things up for them but not Cam.
Yep, Luck has 6 wins with at least one INT and a couple with multiple. Cam must play flawless to escape with a win and those wins usually require big numbers from him.
Newton completed 70% of his passes, RBs literally combined for 0 yards. Do me a favor, name the last time that occured in a NFL game. Newton being forced to gamble late with no help in hopes to win.....is NOT poor QB play. Big difference between a QB playing poor vs a team not showing up.
so like I said, first q was 1 poor game. Media turned that game into his slump and slung that song and dance across the board.
It was always a media created hoax which made for a convenient scapegoat that is the 2012 Carolina Panthers season. Did Cam have some bad games this year? Sure did. But when you look at the big picture and not just a game or 2 you could see Cam wasnt really playing far off from what he did last year, even when he struggled. And this is with less production from his supporting cast.
To put it in perspective, Cam has 6 games this year where he posted a QB rating higher than 100. That ties the most Delhomme ever had in a season in his tenure here including the years we went to the Super Bowl and playoffs. Cam still has a few more games to surpass that mark. He's raised the standards and expectations for QBing in Carolina.
In addition to those QB ratings....in 8 of 13 games he has more rushing yards than any of our RBs. That is sad.....horrible spot to put such a young QB in
