#3055362 Official Panthers - Saints Game Thread

Posted by bigdog10 on Yesterday, 03:13 PM

Not a lot of optimism on this board or radio lately. I'm going against the grain. We've always played the saints tough. Brees struggles outdoors. Graham is banged up. Plus we have Cam freaking Newton.

Sack up panther fans and lets get the win.

27-24 panthers.

#3051402 So... anybody here still think Ron will eventually lead us to a Super Bowl?

Posted by bigdog10 on 28 October 2014 - 02:48 PM

It's hard for me to blame Rivera for this season as it is unfolding currently and there are a couple reasons why.


1.  Rivera had his 12-4 team absolutely gutted, either by retirements or questionable choices out of the front office.  Gross and Wharton were two huge losses on the o-line and we replaced them with Byron Bell (who is not a good tackle) and Amini Silatolu (who was coming off a season ending injury and IMO isn't very good either).  Couple that with having no depth on the line and having to rely on Nate Chandler at RT, and you have a problem.  


2.  Gettleman did him no favors in the offseason

-Releasing Smitty (no need to rehash this, but to say we miss his fire is a bit of an understatement)

-Losing Key veterans and replacing them with one year rentals or rookies (Captain-who i know we couldn't afford, Lafell, Mitchell, Mikell, Florence)

-Gettlemen bet on Harper and Decoud, and so far he lost that one

-Gettleman bet on Avant and Cothery, and so far, i'd give him a pass on this.  I believe Cotchery and Avant could be decent but they need some time to get open and the O-Line doesn't allow for that. 



3.  The Hardy Situation

I don't think having Hardy ultimately makes us a contender, but it would definitely have minimized our defensive struggles and masked the weaknesses of Decoud and Harper.  I don't really blame G-Man or Rivera for the Hardy situation (that is all on Hardy).


4.  Despite what many are saying, Ron is still making the 4th and 1 calls "Riverboat style".  The problem is, we get the first down but then subsequently stall out and have to settle for a FG or turn the ball over.  


I liked what I saw out of the defense this past Sunday.  I have to believe that was coaching from Rivera.  He and McDermott obviously lit a fire under the defense and they responded by playing a very good game.  A game that the panthers should have won.  With all that said, he needs to pull the plug on the Shula tenure.  The offensive playcalling is atrocious and it needs some freshening up.  I'm not sure we have a chance anyway with the O-line we have, but you have to make some adjustments to your playcalling as opposed to doing the same thing over and over and expecting the same results.


Furthermore, the fact that Shula can't adequately call a game against a 3-4 is reason enough for him to be fired.  You absolutely can't have a coordinator that can't adjust to multiple defenses.  We will see variations of a 3-4 defense from every team we play from here on out.

#3046845 Is it wrong to boo your team?

Posted by bigdog10 on 26 October 2014 - 06:47 PM

I booed.

It was more appropriate than screaming the obscenities I was thinking at the time so I felt like I was taking the high road.

#3041054 Looking back, how did we manage to hold Detroit to just 7 points?

Posted by bigdog10 on 25 October 2014 - 02:04 PM

Joique Bell fumble, multiple missed fgs, Calvin dropping a TD and then Stafford throwing into double coverage.

Detroit kind of beat themselves that day.

#3039282 TNF: Chargers (5-2) at Broncos (5-1)

Posted by bigdog10 on 23 October 2014 - 08:49 PM

Such a shame to see officiating so blatantly dictate a game.

I'm losing interest in seeing the same thing week in and week out.

Chargers have played a great game against the broncos and should have the lead at half.

fug em all.  Section 127 will not be kind to seahawk fans on Sunday.  I don't give a d*** if they are the champs.

#3036302 Our starting Left Tackle

Posted by bigdog10 on 21 October 2014 - 08:57 PM

It literally looked like he got hit by a truck.  300+ pounds is not made to go backwards that fast.

#3030575 changes need to come

Posted by bigdog10 on 19 October 2014 - 03:58 PM

I think you have to introduce a youth movement in the secondary.

Keeping Harper and Decoud in the lineup is jeopardizing the season. I don't think you can look in the face of anyone on that defense and say that these two safeties are the best option.

You guys are looking at the Luke ejection all wrong.

I'm glad they tossed him.

This is just the kind of poo fest where your franchise player breaks his leg or tears his knee up.

I wanna know who called the handoff. If that was Shula, he should turn in his playbook.

#3023914 WOW NFL FILMS. Even they get things wrong about the Panthers.

Posted by bigdog10 on 16 October 2014 - 04:00 PM

Was at that game in Green Bay.

Fun fact about that game. The panthers scoring plays all came on one yard TD runs. Four by dwill and one by jake.

#3022551 Burfict Fined; No Suspension

Posted by bigdog10 on 15 October 2014 - 02:55 PM

We're not really talking 'first offense' here.

Burfict has already been fined multiple times (four times last season alone according to Florio).

Do you honestly think the NFL cares how many offenses he has?

Their punishment is levied through the court of public opinion. No outcry from the public equals limited punishment.

Full fledged media s*** storm equals stiff penalties.

This is a non story because of reaction by the media and nfl fanbase. Had this been done to a cowboy player or Manning, maybe you would see a different response from the NFL.

You guys realize that they had to deflect negative attention to Cam since the almighty Wilson threw a game ending pick. Lord forbid they have a segment to talk unflattering of Wilson.

What a POS

I'm sure he will sign in New Orleans when his deal is up.

#3016286 You Don't Go For It?

Posted by bigdog10 on 12 October 2014 - 04:36 PM

Why the fug do people keep saying he was playing for a tie? If our defense holds up, we get the ball again and go for the win.

What is sooooo hard to understand about that? It's not rocket science.

Everyone needs to read this.

Only problem I have is that everyone and their blind brother knew our defense wasn't getting a stop. That is why I wanted them to go for it.
