#3099333 Who to blame for Panthers' last ranked D

Posted by PiratePanther189 on 20 November 2014 - 11:45 PM

It's really 3 things for me


1. First and foremost: Lack of Greg Hardy leaves us with only 1 perennial pass rusher who is in turned shut out of the game with double teams. Horton and Ealy benefit from Johnson being targeted at times, but they aren't talented enough to draw attention themselves. Hardy opens the entire defense up to cause chaos.


2. Close second: The secondary is piss-poor pitiful. They all suck. Norman has shown signs, but he's too inconsistent to say he doesn't suck right now. They aren't very good. It's simple. Now, you can blame the players, their lack of execution, and blatta blah blah. But the fact that this is what the FO has given this coaching staff to work with, the players can't be blamed for being told to start and play. The FO is fully at blame for fielding these players.


3. Third and less important but still worth noting: By and Large, our linebackers are inconsistent in coverage. Great tacklers, great at locating the ball, but the weakness of Luke/TD/Klein is the fact that they collectively are below average in zone and man coverage


Basically, I blame this coaching staff for game management and situational adjustments on both sides of the ball. I do not, however, blame this coaching staff for the defense, the offensive line, or the lack of weaponry on offense.


Essentially, Dave Gettleman takes the majority of the blame for this. These are the players that HE chose to give the coaching staff to work with.


The lack of talent can't be put on the players or the coaches. The players aren't very good, they shouldn't be on this team as the best possible options. Simple as that. But, you can't blame the players for playing and you can't blame the coaches for choosing from what they've got.

Who the fug cares at this point

#3092654 I admit it: I'm more relieved that Cam and the team showed out in the 4th...

Cam Newton led this team on two game-winning drives in as many minutes in spite of being forced to play with a couple of WWII vets at receiver and their wives at offensive line.

So how long have you had your PSLs.  If you had them in 2010 you should be used to the routine of one good, 2 mediocre and then one horrible season.


They were passed for me to begin paying for in 2011, though I've been sitting in the seats since 96.


I know the drill just like we all do.


But that's the problem. That's my problem. It should be all of our problems.


I'm ok with rebuilding, the occasional disappointment. Hell, I'm ok with losing.


But I'm not ok with the same organizational structure failing for 20 years. I'm not ok with 12-4,8-8,7-9,11-5,8-8.7-9.6-10 anymore. I want a vision, a direction, and an entertaining product for which I feel comfortable spending my money.


If we were losing with an understood vision that I agree with, I'd be whistling a different tune.


But right now, this vision looks the same as Hurney's but more frugal. AND THAT DOESN'T WORK FOR ME ANYMORE.


I'm typically patient and optimistic look at my previous posts, but I blew a gasket last night and my BP is still high. This is bigger than this season and one game. This is complacency and acceptance of average at best and of mediocrity and that's bullsh*t.


That's not allowed in any of our professions, it's unacceptable.

My HARD EARNED money pays for P-S-f*cking-L's to this garbage. I work very hard just like so many of us do and I absolutely can not believe the dollar store makeshift bullsh*t NFL team I am seeing right now.


I am TIRED AS SH*T of the way that this organization is managed.

I am TIRED AS SH*T of watching this team poo the bed on a national stage.

I am TIRED AS SH*T of this team vicariously living Einstein's definition of insanity on a year-to-year basis.


I will never stop supporting this team, but from this point forward I will being doing it from the comfort of my couch. This organization does not deserve my money. And I know my money doesn't matter to them. I know my measly few thousand dollars would just be used to wipe Richardson's 100 year old wrinkled ass.


But you know what? It matters to me because I don't have a lot of opportunities to splurge on things that I enjoy. And at this point, I don't give a rat's hairy ass about my seats anymore.


Sorry I needed to vent

He did a little. Mostly on the defensive side.

He's starting to look like Rivera now. He wants to play low scoring defensive type of game each night. That's biting us on the ass this season.


You're such a moron it's just about insufferable

You cmon you're over here pissing your pants freaking out. You act like you've never followed an NBA season before. It's an 82 game season man. Relax and allow things to take their form.


Things don't happen in 6 games. Ask the 2-3 Cavaliers. Where do you expect THEM to be in April?

There are many organizations in the NFL that would fire Rivera if this season's current trend continues.


This organization is not one of them.

No person could ever play consistently well with this offensive talent and this coaching staff. No one.

#3055268 Proudiddy's Observations... ITT, Diddy Eats MKG Crow, Heartily

Posted by PiratePanther189 on 30 October 2014 - 02:02 PM

My biggest concern with Lance was that he would be too selfish, but as it turns out I thought he ended up not being selfish enough!


It's crazy how smart he plays. He does so many little things that are so elite that we've never had a player do here. Like for example, late in the 4th as he's losing the ball and falling down on the play he hurt his ankle on, he gives the ball a subtle tap right in to Kemba's hand to save the possession. I wish I had a way to find the video to show how smart of a little play it was.


He's by no means a scorer, he's a complimentary scorer but man he just gives such an insane boost to the team on defense, on the boards, and passing the ball.


If (big if in the NBA) they can stay healthy, this team is going to be really really good when they gel throughout the season.

MKG is developing just like Gerald Wallace did. Comparing Wallace in 04 compared to around 07 through when he left is a really cool thing to do. Wallace came to Charlotte as a fringe starter that could defend and slash, and he left Charlotte an All Star.


Luckily for us, we got MKG at 18 years old and he's now only 21. He'll be a good player here for a long, long time...we just have to be patient.


MKG is going to become a really good player and soon we'll be talking about how under appreciated he is and wondering when he'll

#3039467 UCONN @ #18 ECU Thursday night game ESPNU

Posted by PiratePanther189 on 23 October 2014 - 11:24 PM

Was right on my prediction


A ranked team is going to get every squad's best effort. That goes for every team we see from here on out. Especially from the more talented squads all around ie: Temple, Cincy, and UCF.


ECU will have to work and work VERY hard for an access bowl spot. If they get it, they will have to earn it.


Good win today, proud that they fought through adversity.
