#1945721 Jason Cole Defends Cam Against Vince Young Comparisons

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 13 October 2012 - 09:18 PM

Cam Newton 7-14 as a starter he has lost twice as many games as he has won.

Just one fourth quarter comback.

Will he get better?I think he will, but get over it KT until he becomes a clutch winner and not an entertainer he is going to draw justifiable critism.


Problem is....people are comparing him to current day Eli or Rodgers and not against them 21 games into their careers. Teams records are comparable with Newton's individual performance being better


#1945619 Will 1-5 seal the deal?

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 13 October 2012 - 07:47 PM

Or his faith in a man that says "how high?" when JR says "jump"....,

I ask this to everyone: What has Rivera done to convince you he is a legitimate HC since arriving here?


Well, he has 21 games under his belt.....only 3 of which we didn't have a shot at winning late.


#1944342 So....here are my thoughts

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 11 October 2012 - 09:41 PM

Well, I think if you collectively look at the last couple years in regards to tackling.....we have CBs essentially playing S. CBs aren't tacklers. That is an issue.

Godfrey leads all secondary players in missed tackles....and it isn't a new trend.

Beason? Well, recovering from his injury couples with new ones explains a lot. I get it....just don't get why they put so much on him.

Beason and Godfrey combined are what makes us collectively stand out IMO in that area.

I was a big Rivera fan....but he isn't improving. That concerns me. From a pure game management standpoint he struggled last year.....still struggling. I don't think that can be explained away as just being a green HC.....when we have seen the league full of green HCs in recent years


#1944287 Probability of the Panthers winning at least 4 games this season...

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 11 October 2012 - 08:52 PM

Not sure whom you are refering to here? I never made a list, or brought up DWill, Stewy, or Tolbert.

I don't think we are "thin or weak at multiple key areas" either. I think we could upgrade the S position. Other than that I like our team. A strong to great FS would help settle the whole D down.

I have said repeatedly that talent is what wins games. Why would I pass on talent? Clowney or Gholston, I would take either.

DTs? What does that mean? Do I think we need some? Am I happy with what we have? Is there even a question there? IMO, our bandaids are doing a fine job. Could we use an iflux of young talent. I would never dismiss young talent.

I went ahead and answered your queries, even though I believe you were confused as to who actually said what. But hell, this is the Huddle. Oops is in everyones vocabulary.


Just speaking in general terms....when people brag about our talent the list usually list 3 RBs.....or at least did.

In a passing league, DE, DT, CB and S.....are key positions. Bandaids are bandaids bc they aren't long term solutions....and ours aren't. Ron Edwards isn't good. Dwan likely was a flash in the pan.


#1944221 David Gettis Practicing Again

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 11 October 2012 - 07:46 PM

Yay!!!

Now we can watch people who have drastically overrated Gettis flip out when he is just a young version of Murphy.


#1944125 Probability of the Panthers winning at least 4 games this season...

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 11 October 2012 - 06:05 PM

All depends on Chud/Rivera.

This team could finish 2-14 or 9-7.

Talent isn't an issue. Coaching is.


#1944115 It needs to be asked

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 11 October 2012 - 05:52 PM

So I have been pondering this question all week. Let's say Cam keeps regressing and the panthers drop the spread option and no improvement. We get the #1 pick this offseason do we take Geno smith or not. Cam will be entering his 3rd year of a 4 year contract next season. Do you take the risk they he will get better next year with no backup plan? Or do you take geno and let him learn a year and to see if cam improves?


I don't think Cam has regressed.

He is basically the exact same guy as last year.....

Chud went to more 3 WR sets and less 2 TE sets and also has gone overboard on the read option looks. Chud hasn adjusted to make his scheme work again.

If Cam had regressed it would show more in his comp% and Yard per pass


#1943333 To put our suckyness into perspective

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 10 October 2012 - 11:01 PM

2003 - MUCH better D
2003 - MUCH better ST
2003 - more well rounded offense. Less explosive and without as much raw talent.

But the current team isn't better than 2003 roster


#1943037 Question re: Stewart fumble play

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 10 October 2012 - 05:44 PM

I was drinking and can't recall when it happened, but the play where Stew fumbled near the sidelines after getting a first down, but was then recovered behind the first down marker so it was called as a 3rd down and we punted. My question is could Rivera have challenged that Stewart was actually out of bounds when he recovered the ball, so it should have been ruled down at the spot of the fumble so it would have been a first? Does anybody know the rule on this?

My bad if this has already been discussed/mentioned in some other thread.


would have been a penalty on Stewart which would have pushed us backwards.


#1941875 Beason wants to stay in the middle

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 09 October 2012 - 09:56 PM

One play? He gave up three huge passes over the middle. Getting caught up in play-action is his fault. He has to be able to read that. He's not ready. Needs more experience. I know how hard you were calling for the organization to draft him back in April, so I don't expect you to waiver.

Lynch was the NFL's leading rusher heading in and the Hawks had the worst passing attack in the NFL....so yeah, getting caught is simpy realistic.

And yeah, I was a leading voice in the draft Luke crowd....bc he can ball and I feared Beason would spend at least a season being a shell of himself. Luke flat out balled Sunday and Beason is a shell of himself.....so?

No rookie is flawless.....doesn't mean he isn't ready. Was ready Sunday unless you are just a Beason homer that wants a subpar liability that can't tackle at MLB


#1940253 Beason wants to stay in the middle

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 08 October 2012 - 10:29 PM

Beason has missed a few tackles and assignments (it appears) but I don't think that this is a reason to move him for the remainder of the season. If he returns 100% healthy, he goes back in the middle. We need our best LB'ers on the field.

Nothing suggests a week off is going to magically speed up a long recovery process.....

Our best LB right now is Luke.


#1940004 4th and 1 - MNF

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 08 October 2012 - 08:25 PM

On the Jets own 25..... They ran the ball. CRAZY! Who would have thought to run it in that scenario


#1939892 what grinds your gears? (Panthers edition)

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 08 October 2012 - 07:23 PM

That we have over 80 million dollars tied up in Runningbacks.

93 million would probably be more accurate....including Tolbert


#1939203 McDermott

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 07 October 2012 - 09:55 PM

Russel Wilson has the best game of his career, DC gets credit?


Seattle scored 1 TD....DeAngelo gave them the ball at the 27. That was it. Held them to 16 points.

We would have killed for that a year ago....





#1939157 McDermott

Posted by DeAngelo's #1 Fan(CRA) on 07 October 2012 - 09:40 PM

People love to bash him.....and did love to praise Chud.

McD is showing adjustments post NYG fiasco. He is calling some decent games. Getting some good production. His D looks to be taking some positive steps. You aren't seeing repetitive status quo. If something blows up on him one week....he is working to fix it.

There were no players last year for him to really survive last year. I think he is showing adjustments week to week this season. Outside of the NYG game....the D has showed up more so than the offense. Guy should get a little credit. He isn't pulling a Chud each week.
