So many things coming together and now culminating in the worst two halves of football this team has had in a long time.
1. Not addressing OL - Cam is getting mauled and has no time, no running game. This is the single biggest issue the team faces and I honestly don't see how they make the playoffs w/ this bunch.
2. Letting Steve Smith go - No comment necessary other than 122 yards and 2 TDs first half.
3. Allowing the media and NFL to bully them into Hardy suspension - Call it what you will and say what you will. He has not been proven guilty, nor is he admitting guilt, nor is there any evidence of guilt. Screw the backwards ass NC legal system that I have to hear the jerk off Steelers fans repeat that Hardy was "convicted"...but screw the Panthers for allowing this to be the case and not defending him until he is proven guilty.
4. Keeping Shula as OC - The guy is garbage. KB, Olsen, Avant, Cochery w/ Cam should be passing all over everyone. Yes the running game is crap but its not like they were doing anything when they were healthy w/ no blocking and predictable play calling.
5. Passion and discipline - Right now, it just isn't there and that is on the coaching.
6. ETA Not addressing the secondary - Can't believe I forgot this one...this team NEEDED to go out an get (or hold onto) starting quality CB and Safety but what did we get? Cason, Bene and old ass Harper.
Just calling it like I see it and keepin it real.
...and just so you know I have been a fan from the beginning through thick and thin and will continue to be but they need to get their heads out of their asses.
