#3211898 If Cam threw 4 interceptions in a game...

Posted by raleigh-panther on 18 January 2015 - 08:08 PM

This loss is on the Packers. They screwed it up. Stupid special teams play and the offense too conservative when it matter. Same with Capers defense. I swear I don't understand why they have not moved away from him by now.

It's just as well. NE would have torn Green Bays ass up in the Super Bowl

Living in Raleigh I've gotten pretty sick of the Wilson worship. Then there is Brady. Might be a good Super Bowl to go to the movies.


#3202527 Steve Logan's points on the Panthers game past weekend and future. Radio...

I think the Panthers and Rivera are too myopic on their appraoch to consider a change, much less a change to Steve Logan.

 

That is the biggest thing that reallly really bothers me.  They talk about evaluations of players and staff and yet the only ones to ever change are the players.

 

That special teams coach, Shula, and Dorsey need to go and we all know it just won't happen.  ...and that's sad for the players and for the fans who pay.

 

Go get the best coach you can, not the coach who is a friend or a coach who was available at the time that no one else wanted or a coach that is

comfortable for Cam.   Comfortable does not equal growth.  It never has, and it never will.

 

I just see the total hypocrisy in standing pat with coaches during an evaluation period but dumping players...and this is why the Panthers under Ron 'Wayne Fontes' Rivera will never be more than 7-9 or 9-7 with an occasional lucky 12-4 which results in a first round knockout in the playoffs.

thanks for the summary RP

I really enjoy listening to Logan - in addition to some real knowledge he is always good for a few laughs as well.


Your are welcome. I have to drive Mondays to Richmond in the pm and back Thursday in the pm so I listen when I can and is on

He also said the Panthers need young running backs ( we all know this here but maybe not the general public).

He was asked about Stewart and he said he is getting too old and Williams should already have been gone due to age and that position. But we all know why

1. Could not believe benjamin was not thrown to more

2. Point one was made in relation to Bersin failing on his route...why was Bersin the target there

3. Said one of the differences in championship teams is they had a punt and kick returners. Could not believe the Panthers did not address this in the offseason

4. Felt the Panthers were in decent shape for next year but tweaking was required including finding a decent returner. Discussion jokingly about Ginns one year contract being up and resigning him

5. Interestingly said the reason the Pamthers run the zone read so much has more to do with OL blocking deficiencies than Newton. Easier to hide those deficiencies in that scheme

6. Draft. No surprises. Same as most say on here

7. Asked what Cam should do in the offseason maybe trying what Kap is doing working with Werner and Logan said it couldn't hurt to work on 7 on 7s

8. Asked if Newton was worth the signing to long term. Unequivocally he said yes. Said in final QBR which his words just one metric of many, Newton ranked 14 out of 32 of the starting QBs

Again interesting to hear from someone who knows the Panthers and has been a coach


#3199087 So what does Gettleman do with Cam?

Posted by raleigh-panther on 11 January 2015 - 08:37 PM

Lord we have some homers on this board. Right now until Cam becomes more consistent you cant even compare him to Luck or Wilson.

Kap, Dalton, ok sure.


How about instead of 'homers' look at the comparison of the ownership, front office, coaching staffs, free agent and draft moves of the three organizations

You all pick out the QBs and go. 'see there is our problem right there. Get rid of Newton and all our problems will be fixed.'

Carolina has sucked it time and time again in the QB arena. do you know how many times Fox/hurney passed on QBs?

The Panthers have failed many times in their handling of cap situations, player evaluations, and coaching decisions and yet all of our woes are laid at the feet of Cam Newton. From the infamous Sean Gilbert fiasco to the handling of Steve smith to trying to make people believe that Byron bell and Nate Chandler are legitimate tackles in the NFL

Forgive my rant but I have followed this team for 20 years and they still can't do the most obvious things and the fan base continues to point to one player when it's an organizational issue. Will Gettleman fix it, who knows but if does not force a change in offensive staff and special teams staff, there is the answer.


#3198699 So what does Gettleman do with Cam?

Posted by raleigh-panther on 11 January 2015 - 07:10 PM

the panthers have a bottom 5 coaching staff. what he has done in the 4 years here is remarkable.


This

Why those in charge cannot see the obvious is very concerning

As Zod as said many times, 'we go no where with Shula'

Some of those calls and player groupings yesterday, sweet baby Jesus

I don't know about the rest of you but I'm not looking for to this being dredged up again on February 9th

yay another one of these threads


Free board and you aren't a moderator

If you don't like it pass it by as I do your inane comments most of the time.


#3198135 Looking at the playoff teams' offenses...

Posted by raleigh-panther on 11 January 2015 - 04:24 PM

It is pretty apparent the Panthers are not in their league

Gettleman, fix it.

I don't care about excuses. I care about fixes that could be done without salary cap hits...better coaches...better schemes...smarter plays and schemes that match what talent is available.

If Rivera is too gutless to do it, well guess what, that's why you are here.

You are the expert.

Do something.

#3191163 Points from Steve Logan on today's game

Posted by raleigh-panther on 10 January 2015 - 04:11 PM

1.  Seahawks high and tight Safety play, Cam must look off that Safety with his yes vs. staring down receivers...said this high safety is nothing new, its done in high school and is very  basic and if Newton does not look that safety off, interception waiting to happen.

 

2.  Shula must have at least 2-3 explosive plays resulting in TDs from the team's top  playmakers (Newton and Benjamin) to have any chance at winning....he cannot stay the course all 4 qtrs., keep it close and then.....said Benjamin, 6' and gazillion inches needs to be told 'we are throwing the ball at your head and you need to catch it'.

 

3.  Benjamin and Newton will be the key...Benjamin must catch those passes...no silly drops...after 17 games he is no longer and rookie and needs to step it up...same with Cam, they need to execute and understand 'its one and done'.

 

4.  Highly complimentary of Cam and said his issue with footwork will show itself with a dropped left shoulder which in turn causes the ball to sail....said his lack of trust in the offensive line is causing these issues and that this 'muscle memory' must be trained out of him with repeated repetitions.

 

It was a very well done interview on 99.9 in Raleigh.  Logan, smart man, moreso than anyone I've heard, he gets it with Newton and that offense.

#3179138 So it's Going to be Seattle

Posted by raleigh-panther on 04 January 2015 - 08:44 PM

Dear god, we will hear endlessly about the second coming of Jesus in the form of Russell Wilson and just how smart he is.

Panthers can win this game if they are flawless on all sides of the ball.

...a big 'if' but it would be so wonderful to beat Seattle in Seattle and also to have Newton out perform Wilson

One can dream......

Frankly, special teams...ours...very very concerning.


#3177542 Should we look at bringing in a new kicker this offseason? Or stick with Gano?

Posted by raleigh-panther on 04 January 2015 - 02:07 PM

There is anybody home defending his boy Gano

NFL kickers are routinely expected to make kicks from 40 to 49 yards.

The Panthers best hope the winning field goal is not on that guy's foot


#3151267 Great article! "Panthers-Falcons should be a nailbiter"

Posted by raleigh-panther on 23 December 2014 - 05:07 PM

Not when his beady eyed ass is on his back

He might be a better passer but not many have Julio jones. Roddy White and had Gonzalez

He is a simp. Hit him
Once or twice. Happy feet. Game over
