#3091663 Consider this...the Bucs are right on our heels

Posted by teeray on 16 November 2014 - 05:48 PM

Hey, fug it. If we don't win the division might as well finish last. Makes next season's schedule a whole lot easier with AFC South and two NFC last place teams on the schedule

The Observer writes:


...Rivera said the strategy was to force Atlanta to try to come back without timeouts.

“We forced them to use timeouts,” Rivera said. “If we get the first down, great, if we don’t we kick the field goal and kick off, and they have to go with no timeouts.... 


There is nothing to add. SMH! Speechless!



The thing is you can still do that and give yourself a chance for a first down.


You don't have to go tight and run it up the middle

#3091405 I don't mind playing for a FG there, but....

Posted by teeray on 16 November 2014 - 05:02 PM

I have no problem just playing for a FG down 2 with 1:30 (or so) left.  In the NFL you should be able to count on your kicker making a FG.


Here is my problem.  I have no issue with first and second down calls.  You don't want to throw a pick while in FG range down by two.  I get all that.  Plus you make Atlanta use their timeouts making a comeback more difficult.


Here is where I have an issue.  They playcall on 3rd down gave us virtually no chance to get a first down.


Why line up tight and run the ball right up the gut on 3rd and 5?  Why not playaction bootleg with a run pass option for Cam.  Get him to the outside.


Maybe that QB draw we used to run.


Or if you want to run the ball up the middle, spread the defense out.  Make them cover the guys in the slot and unclog the LOS.


Going with a tight formation and running the ball up the middle has very little chance of succeeding.


If you bootleg Cam WORST case scenario he takes a sack and instead of 44 yard field goal you have a 49 yard field goal.  That is WORST case scenario.  Gano has plenty of leg to make 49 yard FG so there wouldn't be much of a difference.


If you get the first down, you can run out the clock and have an easier FG with no time on the clock.  If you don't nothing ventured nothing gained.  They still have to use a timeout and it is same result as if you ran it up the middle.


The problem isn't playing for a FG.  I have no problem with that.  My problem is, if you are playing for a FG,  then why the playcalling that doesn't even have a chance at a 1st down and then kick the FG with no time left.


I just don't get it.  This is a coaching staff and team that is playing and coaching scared right now.  They are hoping that other people gift them a win.  You have to go out there and take it in the NFL.



#3091286 If Cam Sucks...Then

Posted by teeray on 16 November 2014 - 04:48 PM

Guy playing hurt, and led the team and giving them a chance to win 3 times at the end of the 4th is the problem?


I remember a couple of years ago the argument was you didn't care what he did for 3 quarters, only the 4th mattered.  Now it is the opposite.


How convenient.  GTFO

#3091264 We can't keep Ron Rivera or Mike Shula heading into bye week after that

Posted by teeray on 16 November 2014 - 04:45 PM

Shula has to go.  He just does.  Yeah Cam didn't play great for 3 quarters and his WRs didn't help anyone out.


But I mean, you have to do something different.  Draw up a gadget play.  Do anything!!


You got to do something to manufacture some life into the offense when guys are struggling.


It just isn't working, and I don't think Rivera knows it.




#3087615 Another "suck it" game to Kemba haters...

Posted by teeray on 15 November 2014 - 08:45 AM

If you think Kemba sucks you should stop discussing basketball in public. You may not realize how foolish you sound.

The way some of you guys talk about Kemba and Big Al just got me smh

#3087489 Hornets vs Suns Game Thread.

Posted by teeray on 14 November 2014 - 11:37 PM

There is a reason I avoid the game threads. I shouldn't have read thru it lol

It is amazing how many bitch about clearly the best two players on the team.

Also after reading that you would think PJ Hairston were Kobe Bryant.

#3087014 Did Cam call players meeting?

Posted by teeray on 14 November 2014 - 06:00 PM

Decoud said Cam addressed the team after the last game. Apologized for his play, vowed to play better, and urged a turnaround

#3086777 Steve Logan absolutely nails it about Cam Newton and Panthers

Posted by teeray on 14 November 2014 - 02:05 PM

Points 1-4 are fixable with better coaching, namely a bonafide OC that schemes to showcase his strengths and QB coach dedicated to working on his mechanics. Points 5 & 6 come with experience and good team around him. Steve Logan's commentary was on point. No one can deny the kid has talent. Cam Newton is a two-time Pro-Bowler and recording setting QB  in only his 4th year in the NFL. He's easily the best QB this franchise has ever had. No reasonable, knowlegdeable, unbiased fan would believe his skills or talent have suddenly disappeared or he's being exposed as no good. What's the difference? Terrible OL, which translates to a subpar running/passing game, WRs that can't get consistent separation and crappy playcalling due to imcompetence and the aforementioned issues. Fix these areas and suddenly this pointless debate becomes moot. He may never be in the elite status of a Manning or Brady, but he's the best QB this francishe has ever seen and the Panthers will be the laughingstock of the NFL if they foolishly cut him loose w/o making efforts to build a competitive team around him.


Proof that Marguide's post was perfect in every way

#3086532 Rae Carruth's Son 15 years later

Posted by teeray on 14 November 2014 - 11:55 AM

Forgot about that, any idea why he uses that picture?

Super sad that an innocent kid now has to live life the way he does because his father is a f*cking loser.


He claims it isn't a picture of Rae Carruth but of him because he happens to be in the picture.


I give him constant poo about it on twitter but he says I am the only one in the world who has a problem with it so I should just deal with it.


I tweeted this link to him this morning because that is who he is glorifying.  He doesn't see it that way.  He thinks it is just a picture of him doing his job, which is bullshit IMO

Yet Darrin Gantt parades a picture of Rae Carruth around on twitter as if it is some sort of fugging cute, ironic, joke

#3086100 Steve Logan absolutely nails it about Cam Newton and Panthers

Posted by teeray on 13 November 2014 - 10:41 PM

He said in that interview something along the lines of "I'd kill to get a chance to coach that kid." Not those exact words but same thing basically.

Like I said I would be all for it. He knows QB play and offense about as well as anybody.

#3086093 Steve Logan absolutely nails it about Cam Newton and Panthers

Posted by teeray on 13 November 2014 - 10:38 PM

I'm glad he touched on Cam's intelligence and says he knows what's going on. Cam typically makes good decisions and rarely do you see him throw a ball into a crowd. This year it's becoming tougher since all his WR's can't get any separation.

In a way I'm kind of glad this all happened on Monday Night Football so the world could see. Maybe all this talk and bashing of the Panthers FO will give them the nudge they need to make some changes.

Yep. He talked about his accuracy, but said he was a smart player and knew what was going on and was a 10\10 in mobility so you can live with the accuracy. Basically says you have to mold offense around what QBs do well, and by that I took it to imply our coaching staff is not doing that

#3086071 Steve Logan absolutely nails it about Cam Newton and Panthers

Posted by teeray on 13 November 2014 - 10:14 PM

Those who aren't familiar with Steve Logan, he is a long time football coach, an offensive guru, and a QB specialist.  Was head coach at ECU from 1992-2002.


As a college coach he helped put David Garrard, Jeff Blake, and Matt Ryan in the NFL among others.  He had coached for 40 years at every level.  He now has an awesome weekly radio show here in Raleigh and now an awesome weekly TV show here in Raleigh.


He is a funny guy and a smart guy so he is always a great listen.  I am sure most of you guys are familiar with him, but wanted to give some of his resume in case you have never heard of him.  Bottom line is he is a guy that I respect a lot and enjoy listening to.


He had an interview David Glenn yesterday and they talked about Cam Newton (maybe some of you have heard it).  And to me, he hits the nail on the head in both his evaluation of Cam Newton and what is going on around him.  He articulates in 3 minutes what I bumble out in the course of 5 wall of text posts in a thread and probably only make sense in my head :D.  I couldn't agree with him more on everything he says.


It starts at the 11:15 mark at this link:




He has a way of saying something insightful in a way anyone can understand.  For example, my favorite quote from this interview about the game on Monday night.



There were 3 snaps on film where he would have had to call a fair catch in the shotgun to keep from getting sacked.  That's how fast those guys got back there!

Boy if we are looking to Scott for hope we really are screwed.

Not saying you are wrong, but .... I'm just going to go have a drink now
