Johnny Manziel is a more agile version of Jimmy Clausen.

 

 




#3135296 Game ball, who gets it?!

Posted by Mage on 14 December 2014 - 04:19 PM

Bene Benwikere on defense

 

Greg Olsen on offense

 

Actually, forgot about Charles Johnson.  He was outstanding.




#3131783 Interesting note on check plays

Posted by Mage on 12 December 2014 - 10:53 PM

There is a difference between checking out of a play and audibling.  

 

Often times, you will hear the announcers talk about there being more than 1 play called in the huddle and at the LOS, based on what the defense is showing, the QB has the decision to stick with the original playcall or check out of it into the other play.  

 

Audibling is different than that.  You are deviating from what was called in the huddle completely.  

 

There probably is a check on 80% of plays.  When you hear a QB screaming "kill" he is killing the first playcall and telling the offense they are going to the second one.  That is a check.  QBs do it all the time.  Cam does something like that every week.  It is the QBs job to identify the defense and if necessary, check out of a bad play and check into the best play possible.  An audible, which is what Shula said Newton is only allowed to do 35-40% of the time, is different.




#3126231 Ron Rivera vs Lovie Smith Part II

It's not nonsense.

TB is 1-8 since week 4.

 

And we are 1-6-1 since after Week 5.




#3126198 Dead Money This year

How is Haruki Nakamura still getting paid from us?




#3125536 Luke kuechly still leads the nfl in tackles

Posted by Mage on 08 December 2014 - 05:33 PM

Luke Kuechly's coverage this year is miles ahead of where it was in 2013 and 2012.  Not that he was bad in those years, but he is making a lot less mistakes and shuts down the checkdown arguably better than any other ILB/MLB in the league.

If we hire Gary Kubiak, I will have to shoot something.




#3116996 So, Greg's Twitter is really him.

Posted by Mage on 03 December 2014 - 01:58 PM

What exactly is the issue with him having a Twitter?




#3114393 Should G-man be fired

Posted by Mage on 01 December 2014 - 08:59 PM

As far as Gettleman goes... I'm not sure what to think.  We are probably one of the five least talented teams in the NFL and some of that falls on Gettleman for having a poor offseason as far as free agency goes.  However, he's done a solid job in the last two drafts top to bottom and I don't think people realize how poor of a situation he is in cap-wise.  Gettleman has to take into consideration the future as well and we have to save as much money as we can to re-sign Cam Newton and Luke Kuechly.  I understand why he tagged Greg Hardy - I think he knew the team was going to be talent deprived and wanted to leave Rivera with some great talent as he planned to build the team.  This was never a two year plan.

 

If we fired him, I wouldn't be overly bothered by it but I wouldn't agree with it either.  I think he should stay unless he keeps Rivera round.  Then I would be all in favor of getting rid of him.




#3114387 Should G-man be fired

Posted by Mage on 01 December 2014 - 08:56 PM

And I agree the Armanti thing happened to early.....but if Armanti panned out like the others no one would have complained even at that price

 

If Jimmy Clausen would have panned out, no one would have complained.

 

If Everette Brown would have panned out, no one would have complained.

 

If Dwayne Jarrett would have panned out, no one would have complained.

 

If Amini Silatolu would have panned out, no one would have complained.

 

If Jeff Otah would have panned out, no one would have complained.

 

If Sione Fua would have panned out, no one would have complained.

 

I often times agree with you, I enjoy your posts, but that is a terrible argument.  Of course if Armanti Edwards had panned out, nobody would have complained.  That logic applies to every pick and trade in the history of the NFL draft.  As it turns out, Edwards didn't pan out.  We traded a 2nd round pick to move into the 3rd round for 5 receptions and 121 yards.  It was a terrible move.




#3113149 About those punt blocks and blaming the players....

Posted by Mage on 01 December 2014 - 09:00 AM

Does Ron Rivera actually watch the team play or does he see something differently from us through his glasses?  The last thing this team needs is even LESS practice time.




#3113134 What loss made you realize the Panthers are done?

Posted by Mage on 01 December 2014 - 08:50 AM

The Green Bay game let me know that this team was one of the worst in the NFL.

 

The New Orleans game let me know that this team wasn't likely winning such a porous division.

 

The Atlanta game let me know that it would be asinine to allow Ron Rivera to return for the 2015 season (granted, I felt that way long before the game but it confirmed it).




#3112910 Do you want the Panthers to win any more games this season?

Posted by Mage on 01 December 2014 - 12:46 AM

I can't bring myself to the point of ever actively rooting for the Panthers to lose but I am at the point where I couldn't care less what we do the final 5 games.  The season is a lost cause.




#3109035 Viking game predictions...new beginning or the misery continues?

Posted by Mage on 30 November 2014 - 08:36 AM

If we win this game, I will legitimately be shocked.
