    Official Panthers at Eagles Prediction Thread!

    I think our offense will put some points on the board, but our defense just isn't good enough right now to slow Philly down. If we can eliminate the turnovers, and maybe force a few ourselves, we will have a decent shot. But we haven't won a road game since we beat the Jets last year, and I don't think we will win this one either. 34 - 31 Eagles.
  2. Where are you getting your numbers? Here are the stats at NFL.com sorted by fewest sacks. We are not second to last. http://www.nfl.com/stats/categorystats?tabSeq=2&season=2018&seasonType=REG&role=OPP&d-447263-n=1&d-447263-o=1&d-447263-p=1&conference=ALL&defensiveStatisticCategory=TEAM_PASSING&d-447263-s=PASSING_SACKED New England Patriots 7 New York Giants 7 Oakland Raiders 7 Tampa Bay Buccaneers 9 Atlanta Falcons 10 Miami Dolphins 10 Washington Redskins 10 Carolina Panthers 12 Los Angeles Rams 12 New Orleans Saints 12 San Francisco 49ers 12 We aren't as good as past years, but we aren't that bad.
  3. Cam targeted Smith 5 times (among receivers, only Funchess was targeted more). Smith caught all 5 balls. Really can't asked for better than that. Smith, Funchess, and DJ Moore (except for the fumbles) all played well. The Manhertz thing was baffing.
  4. I thought we did a pretty good job getting pressure starting in the second qtr. Three sacks, including two by our defensive line, and a few hurries. That is why we held them to only field goals after the first flurry of points. Also, there are actually 7 teams that have fewer sacks than we do, although that is not much better. The more worrisome part is that most of our sacks have come in two games. 6 vs Dallas, 3 vs the Skins, 3 against the other teams that throw the ball more. That has to improve for us to have even a ghost of a chance against the Aints or other pass happy teams.
  5. New Orleans has the number one run d, both in yards per game and yard per carry. Philly is number two in yards per game, but middle of the pack in yards per carry.

    Another puzzling question.....

    Yes, I remember that. It was definitely a wtf moment. I guess they were thinking it would surprise the defense, but imo, might as well throw it to me.

    Positives from yesterday?

    We got decent pressure on Smith in the second half. Addison and Peppers both had a sack. Peppers Sack might have been a little bigger if the ball had taken a slightly different bounce.

    Sunday Snap Counts

    Nice to see Peppers get some pressure on the passer. In fact, our pressure was decent yesterday for most of the second half. About the only decent part of our defense.

    Opinions: Can this team beat Philly?

    Didn't say they had been great, just think they are better than the Falcons/Redskins.

    Opinions: Can this team beat Philly?

    We are 3-0 at home, 0-2 on the road. And both road games have been pathetic performances. And Philly is probably the best team we have faced on the road yet. The odds will be against us, but maybe we can come up with an unexpected win, like we did at NE last year.

    There’s only so much one man can do

    He methodically lead us down the field, getting us into position to have a shot at a td. I don't blame him for the shot to CMC really (although I felt like getting the td there would have left way to much time on the clock) but the goal of the next two plays should have been first down exclusively. I partially blame the coaching staff for this as well, for not making that point to him. In reality, this is the second game in a row that we have had issues with last minute drives. Fortunately, Gano bailed us out with a record kick last week. But it shouldn't have come to that. We should have been able to get closer than 63 yards. I like Rivera for the most part, but end game coaching is not his strong suite. I hoped Norv would help improve on that, but so far he has not.

    He looked great on the TD to funchess, best I can remember, that was a deep throw, ie more than 25 yards in the air.

    Agreed, and probably would have had them about Buerlein or Kerry Collins, (and especially Rodney Peete), had the boards existed then. I remember last year wandering over to the Patriots board, and seeing someone ask if it was time for Brady to retire. Of course, that was only one poster, and he was roasted. But unless a qb is one of the handful of elite qb's, he is going to get slammed by a significant percentage of message board commandos.

    What? No belittling of Funchess today?

    I thought him and Smith both played well today.
  15. When we played the Patriots in NE. The Aints are to far in the future to think about. I want to see how we rebound against the Eagles.

    Jay Gruden trolled us

    We had three turnovers, they had none. That was why we have a l and they have a w.

    I would say it would take about 4 games, given that its a new team, new defense, new defensive signals etc...

    Absolutely is true. Go to any other board of a team that lost today (and some that won) with a poor offensive performance, and deserved or not, either the qb or the offensive coordinator, or the head coach (or some combination thereof) will get the majority of the blame, deserved or not. Also holds true for a lot of college boards as well.

    Qb's get a lot of the credit when the team wins, and a lot of the blame when a team loses. It goes with the position. Cam doesn't get any more or less than most other qb's in the NFL. He made some great throws today, he made some bad decisions. Just so happened that that bad decisions were at the end of the game, when we had a shot to win.

    Official Panthers at Redskins Gameday Thread!

    Regarding that play series, I had more of a complaint about not throwing it deep on the second and short, then giving the little toss or whatever it was to CMC on third down. I like CMC but he is not that good at picking up third (or fourth for that matter) and short. But I agree, he should have gone for it on 4th.

    All aspects of the team deserve criticism for this loss, including Cam. His play on the last three throws was horrible. DJ moore put us in a hole early. Oline blocking in the first half was not good. Defense played like they were asleep for the entire first qtr.

    If he keeps making the same mistakes over and over again, you correct him whenever you need to. Today, we were making the same mistakes on offense at the end we always make. If its Cam, and the coaches aren't correcting him, then they deserve all the criticism.

    Dumbest series of decisions or play calls I have seen from us this year.

    Official Panthers at Redskins Gameday Thread!

    We actually shouldn't be hurrying to much right now. We can't leave them much time on the clock here. 45 seconds or more left and they have a very good chance of kicking a game winning fg.

    I disagree. If Cam is doing it when he shouldn't, it is the coaches job to make him change.
