I agree. It seems to me like they're ok with always playing it safe. They want to do just enough to get by. This organization always has to be so PC. I still can't get over how gutless and spineless we looked not standing up for Hardy. We just laid down and copped out just so the NFL could save face. And at whose expense? The team and the fans. I think that directly shows how mismanaged we are.
Both of those seasons with chud could've been winning seasons if it weren't for Rivera's conservatism and late game coaching errors. I wonder how many games we lost by 1 score those two years.
And he still has barely changed, the Cincy game and first ATL game this year. It shouldn't take 3 seasons in your coaching career for fans, players and everybody around the league to basically tell you to grow a pair and be aggressive and you finally decide to do it cause you're on the cusp of being fired
The funny thing about all this is that coming into this season, EVERYONE knew that the offense had no talent...and the only one with potential was KB...
Go back and read the articles at the beginning of the season where EVERYONE was feeling sorry for Newton, and asking what the heck is GM doing...
Now all of a sudden, we have Huddlers claiming that Newton has had help.
Whoever is saying Cam has help should go jump off a cliff. You definitely won't find anybody in the national media saying that. Deion just ripped the talent around cam last night. The biggest help that is missing is an offensive coordinator. Notice nobody requesting to interview Mike Shula
RB's are a dime a dozen. I have no problem entering next year with Fozzy as our starter and Tolbert as our backup. Find a fullback, chill out on the zone read poo (caused 2 fumbles against Seattle both games) and get back to conventional running
You need wide receivers in today's NFL. Focus on that.
Just watched the replay, clear incompletion. He was falling through the entire process, his two feet hitting the ground don't a football move make. Have to possess the ball all the way to the ground, not just til he's down by contact. He got bit by the Megatron rule, but it is a rule. The ground knocked it out, so it's an incomplete pass.
Exactly. He jumped and caught the ball at his highest point, his 2 steps came of course because he jumped but he was falling and fell towards the ground. That's all one act. Ball hit the ground and came out, that's incomplete
In this scenario if Dez jumped and caught the ball, was falling down but maintained his balance to stay up and ended up diving for the endzone and the ball came out, he would be down
The ground can't cause a fumble, it can cause an incomplete pass
When you catch the ball, and you go towards the ground NO MATTER WHAT you must maintain possession. It doesn't matter about the steps or none of that. A lot of people are misunderstanding and thats the problem
Cam Newton doesn't need help. He's Superman remember. Lets continue putting focus on a defense, that's schematically flawed without pressure. That Kaepernick and Wilson was straight efficient against. Let's also say no thanks to threads about solidified WR like Brandon Marshall and defend the chopping our WR core for one that has Brenton Bersin as Cam 1st read.
