B-b-but muh Shula, he had the #1 Offense. If Cam wasn't the QB of the Panthers you would clearly see how abysmal that Offense really is. Shula hasn't made adjustments and has failed miserably his entire career as a HC or OC, I don't expect him to change now.

To many mistakes.  Fumbles that take away touch downs, bad misses on blocking assignments, bad throws, bad routes, dropped passes, etc... These are the reasons we are not scoring in the second half.

Agreed, but thats where it should stop by this team. They got stumped by the 2 best defenses in the league. The issues on offense are clear is day, it can be fixed. The next 3 games should be Wins, one loss and its time to start getting really concerned.

Exactly this. RR and Shula obviously have no clue about adjusting to in game situations. That applies to opponents performances as well as to clock management.

Here is what I wrote in the "we miss Stew" thread, echoing what everybody else is saying in this thread. It's 100% lack of coaching adjustments. 

Adjustments are this team's biggest problem and that falls on the shoulders of the coaching staff. Rivera, McDermott, and Shula are the ones who never adjust. The first quarter when Cam was 9/9 passing and looked great, CAP also looked really good.

Why?

Because the offensive line was maintaining their blocks and opening up running lanes all day. Then the Vikings adjusted and started fake-blitzing linebackers and dropping them into coverage and our O-line didn't know who to block and Cam ended up getting sacked like 9 times. Shula didn't adjust. 

When our defense had them held to like 50 total yards for a good chunk of the first half everybody was playing great. Then the Vikings offense adjusted and Bradford starts dinking and dunking to the tight end and our defense went into a shell and couldn't get a stop or get off the field. McDermott didn't adjust. 

And special teams always has been and always will be our Achilles heel, they are just atrocious and I've come to expect that they poo the bed every single game in some way. 

We don't lose to good or bad teams, we seem to lose to good or bad coaches that either adjust or do not. I love Rivera, but he better start learning to be a little bit more flexible with his game plans or he'll find himself fired before he finds himself coaching in the Super Bowl.

First half they ran the ball, second half they abandoned the run almost completely and asked the o-line to pass protect forever.

Once offense and special teams each gave up points and the Vikes actually mustered a real touchdown it seems that the defense and Shula panicked.

Shula gave up on the run although CAP and Fozzy were actually doing well. Once the Vikes figured that out the just pinned their ears back. We run the ball and we throw it down field for big chunks not dinks and dunks.

Also as soon as I heard the media talking about our 14game home winning streak and then I saw who the head ref was and I knew they would try their best to end it.

Our pass rush is weak so that's what we have to practice against giving a false sense of security. We play elite Dlines like we used to have and we get stomped.

The focus should always be on a strong Dline, that's always who we've been. We're not the Falcons or Saints. What is this garbage.

Easy fix? Sorry......GH jr

i'll also add that another big problem right now is we literally have zero pass rush..our front four has been invisible..that will need to be addressed in the off-season b/c ealy and johnson are not getting it done on the edge and short has pretty much been neutralized thus far

We are playing Foxball again.

i felt like that watching the game

when fox's teams got rolling and things were clicking they were pretty much unstoppable.  if things got more than a tiny bit off script or out of sync you were probably in for a long afternoon.  and it happened a lot after delhomme started declining.

I was left wondering yesterday why we *seem* so stubbornly insistent that we're going to play the game our way no matter what the other team does.  I know that's a good goal to have because it lets us dictate the game and we can usually do it because our run offense can do so many things.  However when that's not working I would really like to see a bit more of a shift to literally anything else before it's panic time.

I would dream of going so far as to say no adjustments were made because that's not only foolish but would be an uninformed statement but from a fan's perspective it sure looked like we didn't change the *right* things.  Those intermediate passes that we were being gifted but didn't take hurt my soul.
