#1496412 Merril hodge says cam newton a top 5 qb right now.

Posted by rayzor on 31 October 2011 - 02:48 PM

cam's overrated. cam's overrated. cam's overrated ....

*cool picture to help make a point or something*

cam's not that good. cam's not that good. cam's not that good.

essentially all there is to your posting.

#1496357 Lets be honest...

offensive collapse didn't make it any easier.

Our defense played out of their minds for more than half the game.
While i'm upset with them getting burnt in the 3rd quarter, the offense failed to put up any points, allowing the vikings to gain confidence and momentum.

i wouldn't consider it an offensive collapse. they just tapped the brakes when they should have been piling it on.

they decided to play "balanced" ball control offense and control the clock.

you can't do that anymore and win games. you have to put the gas pedal to the floor and never let up, esp. when you have an unreliable defense.

Chud keeps getting a pass for falling asleep at the wheel when we take the lead or tie as well. His playcalling has been for the most part atrocious inside the 20s and when we lead or tie.

i think he's still figuring it out...same with the rest of the guys. this is kind of a "trial and error" year and we are still trying to forge an identity.

i'm giving everyone except special teams a pass this year, mainly because with everyone else i've seen incredibly positive things that make up the majority of the game. they'll get the rest of it worked out.

#1487513 If Chud stays, do you think we will ever be able to...

Posted by rayzor on 27 October 2011 - 11:43 AM

last game we ran the ball 37 times and threw the ball 27 times. you mean balanced like that?

btw...newton is now part of the rushing game. that has to be accepted. 2 better than 1. 3 better than 2.

#1483642 Nice article in the Observer about the boy Cam gave the ball too

Posted by rayzor on 25 October 2011 - 02:04 PM

why hasn't anyone done this before?

oh wait....dwill did it after his TDs in '08 at home and away games. in oakland he got spit on by raider fans for trying it and after one of his TDs and in green bay a packers fan knocked the ball away from the fan.

this isn't a new thing, but it's been a while since we had a team that scored very much so the tradition went away.

it would be nice to see us do that on a regular basis, though. sure, they'll get fined, but i think there is more than enough cash around to pay it between the players.

#1481971 The Colts are a warning to the Panthers

Posted by rayzor on 24 October 2011 - 05:09 PM

you could say that about most teams with elite QBs. you take out the QB and that team is most likely going to fall apart. it all depends on the system.

in the case of the colts and i would even throw in the saints here, peyton and brees are the system. both play a huge role in the playcalling and design of the offense. of course peyton is essentially the OC there.

you can take aaron rodgers out of greenbay and that team would suck balls as well. the lions need stafford to not suck. the falcons need ryan to help them maintain mediocrity. same with the cowboys and romo. lots of teams would take huge hits if they lost their starting QB.

the pats were successful with the matt cassell because of the system they have in place. brady is good, but that team has been dominant for so long because of the system there and the fact that they have the perfect QB for it. cassell showed that you could still be solid in that offense and not have brady, though. that is a rarity.

one thing about the colts, the problem goes much deeper than just losing peyton. that defense last night let a team score 7 TDs on them. the coaching is the biggest problem there. well...that and the fact that they have done a piss poor job in bringing in talent on defense. i guess you can thank their GM for that. and for replacing tony dungy with jim caldwell. wow...what a drop. it's like they didn't even try.

i agree, though, we shouldn't have the team rely totally on newton. the good thing is, this offense is not devoid of talent aside from it's QB. any team that has smitty, stewart, williams, olsen, and shockey as well as this oline is going to do well once the team is comfortable in the system. like the pats, i think we have the perfect QB for this system, but i don't think that it will fall apart without him...as long as they had a QB that could run it, or at least most of it. you won't be able to find a backup who can be the dual threat that newton is, but you could find someone a bit mobile who has a big arm and has confidence throwing the ball downfield (that isn't clausen, btw.) there would be a drop off for sure, but the offense should still be somewhat effective.

the thing that is really going to hold this team back is the defense, but i think our struggles there are going to be short-lived. rivera got the san diego defense turned around, but it took him a full offseason to do it. once we get beason back in there as well as a couple tweaks and additions in personnel, i think the defense will be downright respectable and will help keep this team in games regardless of how the offense does.

cam will be the center of this team for a long time, but it's not a team and a situation that will fall apart like the colts have. it's a much more balanced team with better coaching.

Did anybody else notice London Fletcher mockingly doing Cam's Superman after he hit him on that play. Joke's on you beotch.

he wasn't the only pulling that crap.

i hope they keep on doing it, though. cam will show them who the real deal is.

#1475836 Smitty Disses John Fox

Posted by rayzor on 21 October 2011 - 02:10 PM

What does the # of wins have to do with Smith's production this year? LOL

You would think this was an individual sport the way these writers use wins to measure an individual players performance.

there's no question that smith's better off in this offense with this QB throwing to him than in fox's paranoid preferential system.

the author just made the same remark that a few posters do around here (too often) which is to say that things aren't as great with this team under new coaching because we still only have 1 win out of 6 games. it can get better and i think it will, but as things stand it's hard to dispute that we are a 1 in team and we are still losing.

until that changes, that argument will continue to hang over the panthers heads. it's low hanging fruit for critics, cynics, and trolls.

#1472224 Otah to IR

Posted by rayzor on 19 October 2011 - 01:13 PM

That list right there has more to do with our 1-5 record as anything else... wow.

The years the Panthers have had good records, injuries have been at a minimum.

Is it our training staff? Is it our scouting/drafting? Or is it just bad luck?

just bad luck.

we have a new training staff, but they came in with two strikes against them.
1) shortened offseason
2) TD and otah who had spent the better part of 2 years on IR.

#1471966 Otah to IR

Posted by rayzor on 19 October 2011 - 11:22 AM

looking at his contract info:

7/25/2008: Signed a five-year, $14.33 million contract. The deal contains $8.965 million guaranteed, including a $6.4 million signing bonus. Another $36,000 is available through incentives. 2011: $1.035 million, 2012: $1,076,250, 2013: Free Agent

next year looks like backup pay (which is about all i would ever trust him for at this point). we could go out and draft another RT next year and not feel like money is wasted. in the next year or two we'd probably be talking a new contract with him if he was healthy. might as well use that money on someone that hasn't proven themselves to be chronically hurt. we could keep this guy around for next year and see if he can stay healthy. if not, just let him go.

no way should we go any further under the delusion that he can be relied upon.

Naanee is credited with two drops. Same as Olsen and less than Smith. To put things in perspective.


the only perspective allowed is one that skews naanee as everything that is wrong with this offense, this team and...maybe...the world.

he is the worst WR in the league and any scrub let go of by any team would be an automatic upgrade to our WR corps and hurney is a fool for not going after him.

or some bs like that.
