#2598873 What's different from the first meeting?

Posted by OriginalPantherDan on 09 January 2014 - 09:07 PM

I continue to hear about the first meeting, and it is referenced a lot for this game. There are some significant changes for the 49ers from the first matchup, but I'm not sure Panthers fans are aware of all of them. Here are a few:

 

1.) Crabtree is back. This one is obvious.

 

Kaepernick 11 games before Crabtree's return:

Record: 7-4

Attempts/Completions: 156/275

Yards: 2037

Yards Per Game: 185.18

TDs: 14

INTs: 7

Pass Rating: 86

Rush Yards: 355

Avg Yards Per Rush: 5.5

Yards Per Game: 32

TDs: 3

 

6 games since:

Record: 6-0

Attempts/Completions: 103/171

YDS: 1387 yds

Yards Per Game: 231

TDs: 8

INTs: 2

Pass Rating: 95

Rush Yds: 267

Rush Avg:  12.7yds

Yards Per Game: 45

TDs: 1

 

2.) Vernon Davis.

 

Played just 22 snaps in first game. He will be full strength for this one.

 

3.) Aldon Smith. 

 

Played 12 snaps in the first one with his head in a million different places (see: facing gun charges). Is healthy and mentally back for this one.

 

What makes this one interesting is that Dan Skuta - Smith's backup and a special teamer from the Bengals that we signed in the offseason - had his best game of the year against the Panthers. Will be interesting to see what Smith can do this time around.

 

4.) Bruce Miller.

 

He's on the IR for the season, but was rated the leagues 2nd best blocking FB before getting hurt. Not only does this hurt the running game, but he also caught a lot of balls out of the backfield. He was an outlet for Kaepernick, registering around 300 yards receiveing before getting hurt. He has been replaced by Will Tukuafu on runniung downs, who has been a surprisingly  good run blocker (even a PFF secret superstar this week https://www.profootb...ild-card-round/), but struggles in pass protection. And Anthiny Dixon, who has surprisingly nice hands, but isn't the blocker Tukuafu is.

 

5.) Carlos Rogers.

 

49ers Slot corner. Looks to be out this game with a hamstring injury, which is usually a bad thing, but Rogers had one of his worst games of the year vs the Panthers, and 49ers didn't play a lot of Nickel vs Panthers in game one. In Nickel/Dime just 34% of plays.

 

6.)  Eric Reid.

 

One of 3 concussions he's suffered this year was vs Panthers. The kid is talented and still learning to play at the NFL level. He missed most of the 2nd half with this game and was replaced by (gasp) Craig Dahl. Reid's improved since this game and will hopefully not lead with his head again when trying to tackle Mike Tolbert.

 

 

So, those are the changes in the 49ers I've noticed since the first meeting, what have Panthers fans noticed in the team that's changed since the first meeting.

 

 

And here, I'll just post a few things here to get them out of the way so that we can focus on the subject:

 

*No one is giving Pathers a chance, we winzzz by a landslidezzz!!!*

*Cam >>>>>>>>>>>>> Kap, we winzz!*

*Kap can't go through his progressions!*

*Crabtree won't make that much of a difference, we haz the best D in da univerzzzeee!!*

*YOUR ENTIRE TEAM IS GAY AND FROM SF LULZ, GTFO!!!!!!*

 

 

That outta at least get us started.

 

 

Cheers, fellas.

The answer to your thread is simple: the Niners won't keep it as close this time. Panthers 24, Niners 17. Next question.

Posted by OriginalPantherDan on 04 January 2014 - 02:32 PM

Love your spirit dude....but that "Rise Up" part makes me ill ......if you know what I mean


Yeah, I forgot that. I meant for Section 501 to rise up, not the defendants from Atlanta (HT to SCP for that reference).

Looks like temps in the low 20's in Philly tonight.

Good luck, taints.


Fug the Taints. I don't like Philly, but want them to win tonight. Then Niners win, go to Seattle, win there as well. We throttle the Eagles next week, then get the NFCCG here vs the Niners....easy money. Then it's on to NY for the Super Bowl, where we win the John Fox Bowl over the Broncos, 27-23. Done.

Can anyone explain what the circumstances are for who we play?


Simple. If NO wins, we play the winner of SF vs GB. If PHI wins, we get them. So we may know tonight.


#2500271 Bask in the misery of the Atlanta Falcons.

I am most excited to see the Panthers at 7-3, yes, but that is closely followed by my intense joy to see the Falcons crash-and-burn party train.  I hate the Falcons nearly as much as I love the Panthers, and after hearing all off-season how this was the Falcons year to win it all, and to get to see this unfold as it is with the Panthers as possible Super Bowl participants and the Falcons as a complete joke? Pure, unadulterated joy.




#2433909 St Louise

Posted by OriginalPantherDan on 18 October 2013 - 08:52 PM

I lived in a shitty suburb of St. Louis for less than a year as a 6-year-old kid thanks to a job relocation for my dad (St. Charles, MO, for those interested)…and even at that age I knew it was a hell hole.  The arch was kinda cool, but other than that, the place was worthless. And this is coming from a guy who lives in Richmond, VA, so I know a hell hole when I see one.  I will be at the game Sunday (I chose this as my annual game to attend), and hope to see the Panthers get revenge on the city that stole one good year of my youth from me. Screw you, St. Louis.




#2401954 How do you feel about the Panthers playing in merry old England?

Posted by OriginalPantherDan on 28 September 2013 - 10:38 PM

I make it to one Panthers game a year (dammit, I live in Richmond, VA) so it's not like I'm missing attending a game by sending the Panthers to England, but I still don't like the idea of it.  Not a bit.  Goodell should die for pushing this crap.  If the NFL is so hell-bent on expanding the NFL fan base, it needs to begin with a league BASED in Europe, not pushing teams around the globe…a global league is impossibly complex and unworkable unless we also implement the as-yet-uninvented teleportation device to alleviate transportation nightmares.  And as I recall, there WAS an NFL Europe aka World League of American Football, and it went belly-up. So no, it's a bad idea, as is European football (and dentition).




#2378745 Is our problem coaching or talent?

Posted by OriginalPantherDan on 15 September 2013 - 03:58 PM

Cam Newton is as much to blame for the loss today as the coaching.

WHAT?! Cam is hamstrung by this coaching staff…they don't believe he can win it for him, only lose it for them, so they don't let him loose.  The coaching staff is squarely to blame here, today, last week, last year…all of it.  Was Cam off a bit? Of course, but his confidence is long gone because he knows what we know…the coaching staff doesn't believe in him. The coaching staff's of the other young QB's have faith in their guy, but not the Panthers. Nope. That's why he struggles at times. He's not to blame here, dude.
