In Topic: Harper Says TD Wasn't On Him

Yesterday, 05:03 PM

i blame the defensive play call. all but 3 guys rushed the qb. field was wide open. i saw it before the snap. horrible play call.

it was a gutsy call that didn't work.   McDermott would occasionally do this in Philly.  His best work comes when he doesn't get greedy, and/or the line does the work.  


I don't know if Harper was right or wrong.  Everyone else had someone so he had to get to Cameron, but you don't want Harper in man on Jordan Cameron down the seam either.

Olsen needs 19 to get there. 


Far as I can tell, only time Carolina had two 1000 yard receivers in a season was 1999.  Team has had 11 total. 

In Topic: The Nightmare Scenario

18 December 2014 - 11:42 PM

So if the Panthers December performance turns out to be not good enough to get us to the playoffs but good enough that it saves the jobs of most - or even all - of the coaching staff, how do you expect you'll react?

I don't fear the staff staying. I don't 'fear', but do worry, about lucking into the right OT, making the correct hard choices against the cap, regaining a good pass rush and defensive dominance. 


When I think of nightmare scenarios, I dig into the past for things like a player being arrested for murder and a former player being murdered within the same year.  I think about a beloved coach/player dying of cancer.  Hell, Cam having been in a car accident is a shitload worse than wondering how much no-huddle Shula would let Cam run (or based on viewpoint, how much Rivera would let Shula run).

fivethirtyeight.com says, Carolina's chance of playoffs went up from 2% to 11%, New Orleans' went from 68% to 44%.  Carolina only gets .1% chance greater from an Atlanta loss, oddly.

In Topic: Realistic Head Coaching Candidates - My Shortlist

05 December 2014 - 09:45 AM

Whole lotta people believe the 49ers offseason will see Harbaugh move on and Hamilton take his place.  It actually does seem like a viable scenario.


Did a quick search and found Zampese's had several OC interviews over the past several years; Lions in 2014, Bengals in 2011, Bears in 2010 and Panthers in 2007 (obviously that one we knew about; we chose Jeff Davidson).  Obviously if he's anything like his dad he'd be good, but so far no one's given him that shot.


Titans stated today they don't plan to make any coaching changes, but that doesn't necessarily mean they would deny Mularkey permission to advance.  He's been a successful OC before but he always gives me kind of an 'old news' vibe.


I like Reich, but one year coordinators make me really nervous.


And yeah, Mangini coaching tight ends made me go "huh"?  he was an 'offensive assistant' once years ago.  Near as I can tell, that's his only offensive experience.  He didn't even play offense in high school or college.

I guess with Mangini, it's a 'stash' thing like Mike Nolan coaching WRs years ago. 


Only reason I bring up Mularkey is the combo with Clements.  Clements is probably going to run his own O, and even being able to ****** a guy like McAdoo on staff, I don't know if he's 'enough'.  Up and comer, shouldn't have been that bad but it's rare when an O guy like Coughlin installs an O that he's not familiar with.  So, Mularkey as an OC is a hedge.  He runs it, but he's not the one making the decisions.  It's like when you'd have a Sherm Lewis or Gil Haskell as OC but the HC is calling the plays and the QBs coach is the one with play input.
