  1. I think that if you look at his passing charts, he's always in the yellow (average) or red in 20+ yard passes. It isn't like this was all of a sudden, either, lol. Nobody wants to blame the inadequate WRs we're starting or the HC we're employing.
  2. Addison is gonna get cut next year if he doesn't step up. IIRC we save like $6 Million if we cut him next year. ETA I just looked it up. We'd save $7.25 Mil. He GONE folks. Better start looking at first round DEs. I guess we're saving Haynes for next year? lol...
  3. We're the equivalent of the annoying gnats and mosquitoes that just gnaw away at you over time. Other teams are just the bullies that show up and whip you and then forget about you later, lol.

  6. That play proves that nobody is gonna respect Moore and even guard him all that well until we actually start using him more.
  7. Assign your fastest LB or Nickel to CMC at all times. He gets shadowed wherever he goes. Once Greg is back to Greg, if that ever happens, bracket him. Have your CBs on the alert for the out routes, since that is what Funch runs the most. Have them buy any cuts to the outside until you get burned. Safeties are always in or close to the box, and spying Cam and providing run/short pass support. On Offense, you simply pick apart the soft spots in the zones methodically, and then run right at the middle of our defense until they start stopping it again. Special teams are a wash. Nobody cares about kickoffs, returns, or field goals anymore. Except, against the Panthers at least, just go ahead and count most of the FG attempts as makes and hope Gano misses an extra point in there somewhere.
  8. I am really starting to lean on it being Ron holding Norv back.
  9. By my previous numbers, it would mean that Cam is 39/50 in passes from 6-14 yards. That means his completion percentage in each range: Behind LOS-5 yards - 80% 6-14 yards - 78% 15+ yards - 43% I think this is because of a few things: 1. We run too many out routes. 2. We rarely pass in between the hash marks. 3. Our WRs that are getting PT can't run open routes. 4. We stopped using CMC as a receiver out of the backfield, which would help out or WRs. 5. Cam still has the occasional overthrow. When 51% of your passes are for 5 yards are less, it is kinda hard to stretch the field and take the pressure off your run game, too. Teams are just going to stack our box every game until we start stretching the field more. I suspect they're all already keying on CMC so much because we're using him way too much and they know our game is the short game. TBQH This is 100% on Ron and Norv.
  10. we've barely thrown it past the 15 yard line... I'm counting Cam at 16/37 in passes of 15 yards or longer, with 2 picks and 2 TDs. For your consideration, I am also clocking him as 67/83 in PASSES LESS THAN 5 YARDS, INCLUDING BEHIND THE LOS, lol. We're also at 6 TDs and one pick in that range. Basically, we pass less than 5 yards almost two and a quarter times more than we throw it more than 15. I get that we've built a stable of YAC guys. But we don't play those guys enough to justify these numbers.

    No the appropriate action would be to get him to a treatment center for his mental illness, not parade him around the White House like some sort of spokesman for anyone or anything...

    If anything, Kanye is a person with mental illness that is being exploited and taken advantage of.

    The token *****

    Everyone toting Kanye West around like some exemplary member of society because they are right winger Trump supporters were the same ones outraged when he straight up said on national TV that "George Bush doesn't care about black people" It is all political theater and Kanye is a tool, as is everyone supporting anything he does.
  15. Yes, the Panthers lost yesterday, and they did it in an ugly fashion. Early mistakes by young players cost us, as well as recurring issues from previous weeks. It is better to get these ugly losses out of the way now and gel later in the season when it really counts. We're one game back from the Saints in our division, and have a game on the other two teams. On offense, we need to stop with the Shula-esque things we've been reverting to. Things like slow tempo/ball control will always be a part of what we do under Rivera, but it is time to open up the playbook a bit and pick up the pace at times. Cam is at his best when we're making quick decisions, and he isn't rushing the snap. Get the calls lined up and in in time. Get to the line, then make adjustments. Also, stop it with the stupid draw plays. This is more infuriating to me than anything on offense right now. We get a shred of momentum, and we call a draw for a minimal gain on first and second down. JUST STOP! Remove 90% of the stupid delayed option BS we're still holding over. Most of the time when we're trying to decide whether to let it go to CMC or have Cam keep it, we're taking a loss or a minimal gain. Just cut that crap out. If you want Cam to run it, call the run for him. If you want CMC to run it, have Cam actually hand it off, not stick it in his gut for the longest second ever only to pull it out and take a loss or gain a yard. You're extending plays when they don't need extending, and getting little return. Once we cut that poo out, it'll work more the 10% of the time we leave it in. Stop forcing the ball to vets. DJ, Samuel, and Wright have both shown the ability to run good routes and get open. Forcing throws to Smith and Funch in good coverage, making them have to make a play on a contested ball is leading to breakups and tipped balls waiting to be picked. There's no way Manhertz should be playing over Thomas right now. Especially now that Greg is back. Thomas has made some rookie mistakes, yes, but he's far and above better than Manhertz already. Get the ball out faster. Stop calling plays trying to stretch the field at bad times. When you do need to take some time and stretch the field, have the receiving options move, not run to and stand in one spot and not help Cam out. We should be doing to other teams what they are doing to our zone D. Hit the posts and slants for 6-7 yards and let our playmakers make plays after the ball is in their hands. We rely on deep corner routes too much when it counts, and we need guys in the open field, not on the sidelines. On defense, STOP PLAYING SO MUCH SOFT ZONE! "Bend don't break" is so old school and teams just carve it up now over the middle on quick reads and pick routes. We're asking our new safety to play center-field way too much. He's done a good job so far of what he's being asked to do, but damn, give him some help. Bradberry and Jackson are both doing okay in zone, but they'd do a lot better if they weren't playing 10-12 yards off the line every play. Teams are torching our LBs (actually not as bad now that TD was back yesterday) in the zone gaps. I've seen several plays where teams are just running two guys into a zone, and then forcing our CBs and LBs to make reads they wouldn't have to make if they disrupted the timing of the routes off the line. We're literally just asking teams to run routes straight at us, and gambling on who we should stick with. Man the fug up! Put your hands on guys at the line. Slow them down before they get rolling. Basically, grow a pair. Because we're straight up allowing offenses to develop their plays in front of us before we react, we're generating no pass rush. We're also having a tough time containing the run, because our LBs are backpedaling too much into zone coverage or trying to pick gaps to close. We need to keep teams honest by commiting to blitzes as well as edge rush. Too often we're reacting. We need to be the stimulus that causes the reaction. We have the talent. We have the skills. We just aren't putting it together or keeping our foot on the gas. TLDR: 1. Cut out most of the option, and get your playmakers on the field, open quickly, and with room to run on offense. 2. Be physical with opposing offenses on the line. Don't sit in a spot and wait to react or drop into coverage hoping to keep the play in front of you. 3. Up the tempo in all phases. TLDR2: A lot of this is on Ron Rivera. He is the one that is holding us back, IMHO. If we continue down this path, it should be his head that rolls.

    I agree, in a sense, that capitalism fuels consumption. I disagree that overpopulation won't eventually, or isn't already, a thing depending on your views of what exactly overpopulation means. There are a finite number of resources that are trying to supply an exponentially growing population. Our environment is already being destroyed and we don't have the energy reserves (or even the desire, it seems) to salvage the resources we can renew fast enough to catch up to our current rate of consumption.

    Hunting is dumb period. It requires no skill whatsoever other than sitting in place, aiming an implement of destruction, and making a kill. For hunting to ever be looked at as ethical or a sport, in my opinion, everyone will be required to use primitive weapons, track the game, skin and preserve all meat on site, and to eliminate any sort of taxidermy trophy at the end. Trophy hunting is dumber times a million.

    Apply all this logic to the overpopulation of humans. Now do you agree with your quoted warped views? It isn't about it being a rich man's sport. It is about the unethical taking of life.
  19. How many of those have we actually had a lead and sat on it, forcing us to have to come back? I'm not being rhetorical, just curious and lazy.
  20. See: New Orleans, Tampa Bay, and Atlanta. We're really the odball in our own division when it comes to our archaic approach to offense, and honestly we're one of the worst in the NFL at forcing the run and putting ourselves in bad passing situations. I was browsing some advanced stats this morning and looking at Cam's passes. We barely ever throw over the middle, and almost all of our passing TDs have come on very short passes that get stretched by the playmaker on the other end. Tell me, then, why we consistently put ourselves in third and long situations, and force passes to the sidelines instead of the middle. I'll tell you why. It is poor coaching, and poor coordination. If the offense would fix itself first, our defense could afford the slow starts we've been seeing at times.
  21. The only riverboating Ron has done this year has been the kind where he's removed the paddles from the wheel and is just floating in space as the wheel turns and does nothing.
  22. 17 points in today's league is unacceptable. When Dallas can drop 40 on Jacksonville, and we struggle to keep up with the Giants and Redskins, there is a problem. We need to put our foot on the gas and stop doing the dumb things we do on the offensive side of the ball.
  23. This too. I'm cautiously optimistic. But, for us to make the changes we need to make, to be quite honest, Tepper needs to give Rivera a stern talking to, at the very least.
  24. 100% of our biggest issues are. 1. soft zone coverage 2. short and long ball control offense, no middle or fast paced game 3. lack of discipline within coordination of all phases of the game
