David Newton blog about Carolina's use of on-field player GPS

21 February 2015 - 02:53 AM

Kind of interesting that Gettleman credits it with the team being healthy (at least from non-contact injuries) at the end of the season.

Gettleman referred to a rash of hamstring injuries early in the year to key players such as running backs DeAngelo Williams, Jonathan Stewart and Fozzy Whittaker before the team began to fully utilize GPS.

“As soon as we got on that GPS and really understood what it was telling us ... we were pretty stinking healthy at the end of the year," he said.

Title says it all. I had joked about the guy who already got the Seattle 'back to back' tattoo suing the team if they lose, but maybe it's not so out there after all.

My company HQ is there and they made it sound like the entire city is without power.  If that's the case, hope everyone is staying warm out there.

Big day indeed.

Similarities between seasons and the teams themselves are there:

- Both the 04 and 14 teams started terribly, only to go on a late winning streak.

- Both teams lost a key member of the DL early in the season (Jenkins in 04, Hardy in 14).

- Both teams had to dig deep for competent RBs (Brandon Bennett with a TD in 04, Ogbonnaya with a TD in 14).

- Both teams were destroyed by the Eagles in Philadelphia.

- Both teams' passing attacks were bolstered by rookies (Colbert in 04, KB in 14).

- Both teams featured Ricky Proehl in a key support role (WR3 in 04, WR coach in 14)

- Both teams' secondaries included 3 young guns and a grizzled vet (Gamble/Manning/Branch/Minter in 04, Norman/Benwikere/Boston/Harper in 14).

- Both winning streaks included an early-December throttling of the Saints at the Superdome (31 points in 04, 41 points in 14)

- Both teams were Smitty-less.

The 04 team ended up surrendering 140 yards to Deuce McAllister at home en route to a heartbreaking 21-18 loss. Will history repeat itself next Sunday?
