#2114356 Bill Barnwell: Worst Coaching decision of the year goes to.....

Posted by rayzor on 25 January 2013 - 12:33 PM

Surprise, Surprise another Grantland article bashing the Panthers. The worst coaching decision this year was John Fox deciding to stay conservative (in a playoff game) and run the ball on 3rd and 7 to ice the game against the Ravens. You've got Peyton Manning as your QB and you run the ball to ice the game?!?!? Everyone knew it was coming, it's John fugn Fox.

Bill Barnwell is a fat looking assclown why anyone posts his poo is beyond me.

it's basically the same thing.

conservative call at the worst possible time. you give the other team an opportunity to win/tie rather than you finding a way to keep the ball and the win.

it's making the mistake of trusting your defense to protect the lead in an era that heavily favors the deep pass. it's dumb.

if this was the only time that rivera made calls like this last year, i'd consider it an abberation, but it wasn't.

#2113471 Gil Brandt ranks Cam 7th best QB under 30

Posted by rayzor on 24 January 2013 - 04:39 PM

gil brandt has been one of cam's biggest supporters, esp. prior to the draft.

i don't like the list and don't think it matters, but there's been some things that cam needed to change about the way he handles himself that hopefully was later in the season.

he had his issues last year for sure, not the whole season but definitely the first half.

if the team starts winning, he'll climb up those lists that people apparently put so much stock in. until the team can figure out how to do it consistently and find their way into the playoffs, he'll stay right about where he is.

#2113311 Gettleman not sold on read option

Posted by rayzor on 24 January 2013 - 02:48 PM

Reid had the same great idea for Vick too. How come Caroll and Harbaugh don't have those great plans for their QB but rather do wha't best to WIN. That offense should be runned around the strength of Cam. No such thing as balance. Tell that to the Patriots and Packers. My bad, I forgot this was about the Panthers. Cam would look great in Chip Kelly's offense in philadelphia. 2 more years Cam.


one of his strengths is as a pocket passer. he's got an incredible arm in addition to being a great runner. and again, no one is saying eliminate it...add to it. allow . him to be the true versatile QB, the true DUAL THREAT QB he can be, wants to be, and should be. a complete QB.

you limit him to being a read option QB and you stunt his growth as much as if you were trying to make him just a pocket passer or game manager.

do you think he wants to be labeled as a read option QB? if you think thats the case you're being dumb.

no one wants to take away the read option. they want to provide more options for cam and this offense. you limit it and you make this offense easier to figure out and stop. i don't care what hole you're trying to put him in, read option...pocket passer...that hole is going to end up burying his potential and eventually his career. the more versatile you make...the more versatile you ALLOW him to be, the greater he becomes.

read option is just another running play. it should be used the same way as any other. a bit of misdirection will go a long way. also making sure your QB isn't keeping the ball most the time, which cam was bad about. reduce the number of times he keeps it, make defenses think you're going to run it when you don't, and get the OL to block better and the read option becomes more successful. have it as just one element of the base instead of THE base and the whole offense gets better.

#2111874 Shula excited to be a coordinator again

Posted by rayzor on 23 January 2013 - 12:29 PM

Yeah pretty much.

haven't seen that anywhere. i've just seen people assume that he was.

i did see this that gave me a little hope:

“I thought we did a good job with Mike and Warrick back then because it’s hard to get those guys in rhythm,” Shula said. “It’s kind of a good problem to have. But there is the word, ‘problem,’ in that sentence. So we’ve got to continue to find out what each guy does well and ask him to do those things.”

But with Newton, who led the Panthers in rushing last season, Shula indicated he would use a mix of the zone read and more traditional runs, along with a downfield passing attack.

Read more here: http://www.charlotte...l#storylink=cpy


paying attention to what each runner does well and putting them in those situations is something that chud never did. chud admitted that he didn't even look on the field to see which back was on the field when he called plays. that's why we had williams doing things that stewart should have been doing and stewart doing things that williams should have been doing.

so i like that.

i also like that it will be a mixture of those things, the zone read, more traditional running plays, and the downfield pass. i just hope he mixes them up better than chud. it seems like he's going to be more observant than chud, but still it's just talk and being able to notice what's happening on the field (something that chud wasn't good at) doesn't mean that you'll make the best decision or make it quickly enough.

still, that's some of the most promising stuff i've seen. still not sold on it at all, but oh well...

#2111767 Rivera talked to (wanted?) Norv

Posted by rayzor on 23 January 2013 - 11:00 AM

This is a sign of our turning point. Cleveland is now taking OUR has-been rejects. We have arrived, gentlemen.

chud and norv both chose to go to cleveland instead of being here.

not sure how that's them taking our rejects.

#2110853 Pat Y writes the obituary of the Failcons

Posted by rayzor on 22 January 2013 - 03:59 PM

No I hate their fanbase as well. What I'm wondering is why the falcons are the only "good" team to face criticism for being just "good". Nobody writes off the Brady and the Pats despite them not having won a superbowl in almost a decade. Nobody trashes the Texans even though everyone knew they weren't good enough to win a superbowl this year.

IDK I just get this funny feeling that it is because they are from the NFC South and if we ever overthrow their reign on this division we will be in the same boat.

4 one and done in the playoffs and you start deserving that criticism.

and then they earned a reputation of being barely able to win. 7 of their wins were by 7 points or less. 4 of those were by less than 5 points.

they won more than anyone, but it wasn't convincingly.

what is his own stamp?

what's the "good stuff" he'll be keeping?

i worry about him trying to make a name for himself rather than just not getting in the way like he should.
