Game Grades - Panthers at Saints

Dec 08 2013 11:53 PM Zod Carolina Panthers
In what could have been a glorious day for the Panthers organization, instead they are left desperately looking for anything that went right.

On with the grades...


Offense

From the gameplan to the execution, it all was severely lacking. Cam could not find open receivers. Brandon Lafell made key mistakes in receiving and blocking. Byron Bell was beaten badly on too many occasions to count.

Overall, a very poor performance. Lets hope they all got it out of their system.

Offensive Grade: D-

Defense

Allowing over 30 points is never good. Pressure was never really put on Brees until it was too late. It seemed the Panthers gameplan was to drop back in a zone and dare Brees to beat you with his arm. An odd strategy to say the least. The result? One of the worst defensive performances in recent memory.

Defensive Grade: D-

Special Teams

Not much impact in this game. The missed field goal was bad, but really were the Panthers going to win this game with field goals? Heck no. Riverboat.... Come back!

Special Teams Grade: D

Coaching

This game had no chance of being won before the Panthers even set foot on the field. Looking at what the Panthers tried to do and the inability to adjust and create some positive plays was too much for any player talent to overcome. The Panthers were badly out coached by the Saints.

That is really all you need to know.

Coaching Grade: F

I'm pissed at Shula.

Cam couldn't find any open receivers because there were none.

I give ST better marks, C maybe. 

 

Ginn had some good returns, almost broke one.

Reasonable, though Shula deserves an F for Tolbert vanishing for about 3 quarters.
Hey, let's put the game on the backs of our crappiest 3 positions (DB's, RB's, and WR's)!

Clearly, Rivera has never been the answer.

Clearly, he needs to stay aggressive and not go full retard like the old Ron.
oops

The tempo was set with those first two scores, we needed touchdowns and bad play calling by Shula gave us 6 instead of 14. Overall a bad game for the team all around. I honestly expected New Orleans to come out strong after being embarrassed in Seattle and faced with a division game, sad that Shula and McDermott couldn't adjust to the Saints. Good game to the Saints, can't wait to see you guys in two weeks outside of that dome.

The local news here is playing defensive highlights. Bell is in most of them.

Maybe his worst game of the year.... Even buffalo.

after tonight i cannot understand how there is still anyone standing to support brandon lafell.

he gets a pass because most fans, like myself, watch most games on televsion.

it is not until you see him in person that you can truly comprehend how worthless brandon is as a receiving threat. he is never open.
Shula has gotten worse over the course of the season IMO. It's like he knows now our defense is capable so he calls plays to not make mistakes and to stay safe...the personnel we put out there and the time share in the backfield boggles my mind. Clearly Tolbert should be our guy.

Except for the times when he was open.

To quote one of my favorite movies of all time (Baseketball), "Well, it was a team effort, and it took all of us working together to lose this one"

Except for the times when he was open.


yeah you're right there was that time he was open and dropped the ball.


good job brandon!!

Ginn Lafell Smith are all slot receivers. Yes even Steve. Being down 20 points you have to come back and we cant because of this reason

You mean on the key drop that gave brees the chance for another td on a two minute drive?

Edit: quote about LaFell being open disappeared.

No, the gameplan was to jam at the line. We were just very bad at executing that plan.

It was like watching the Cardinals game from earlier in the season all over again.

 

We shut down Brees early, had the opportunity to go up 14-0 in the first quarter, got field goals instead, then lost momentum. Honestly, with better play calling and execution alone, we could've won this game. Rivera has to get his act together, and kick Shula in the ass.

I didn't have any huge issue with coaching decisions or playcalling. 

 

The strength of our D, the defensive line, just didn't show up tonight. We couldn't generate any pressure at all without bringing blitzes which left us exposed elsewhere.

 

On offense, our wide receivers had a bad day. Whether it was getting open, making catches or doing their job as blockers, the receiving corps played poorly.

 

I think the gameplan was fine overall. It just didn't work because certain individuals underperformed.

LaFell got nice separation on a good route at the goal line towards the end of the game when Cam threw an incompletion to the left corner of the end zone to Ginn.

Too little, too late. Where was he during the first three quarters?

I'm sorry, but LaFell should not be re-signed. I can't trust that man again. Similar the Arizona game, he singlehandedly killed drives.

I see the usual huddle meltdown is back in fine form

A better OL makes two of those look better
