USA Today: PFF ranked secondary 29th in 2018

Recommended Posts

 

"The Carolina Panthers secondary was a major part of the team’s defensive issues this past season. Their cornerbacks featured the up-and-down James Bradberry and the promising but unreliable rookie Donte Jackson, plus the aging Captain Munnerlyn. Jackson has potential but overall the group did not perform well enough. Things were not much better at safety, with the ancient Mike Adams finally showing signs of obvious decline. Only Eric Reid was a solid play from week to week.

"In the end, the Panthers ranked No. 18 in passing yards allowed and No. 19 in scoring defense. Thanks to their shoddy pass coverage and communication mistakes that led to multiple easy touchdowns for their opponents, Carolina’s defensive backfield wound up getting ranked No. 29 in the NFL for the season by Pro Football Focus."

 

TD was shown the door, so Adams has to be next.

As I said earlier in the season in the thread t(full of sone skepticism) that I started on Bradberry, he's got to get his consistency up. If he doesn't, then he's not starting material.

A-Jax had growing pains for sure, but with better coaching and experience, he looks to have a lot of promise.

Another safety, coaching, Cockrell's return and perhaps some more competition from FA, and we may just be good next season.

Captain and Adams hurt us

Byt what killed us was getting no pressure 

We played against some of the worst OL like the Giants, yet couldn't touch the QB

Jackson was unreliable but Reid was consistent????? Hahahahaha

 

 

Reid and Adams are the two worst coverage safeties in the league

D-Line pressure was nonexistent. Would have to have historically great coverage to make up for unlimited QB throwing time.

29th is generous

We were probably 32nd until the last 3 games, when the secondary finally started to play a little better.

My only qualm about Reid's play was I think he went for the big hit at times when he should have tried to wrap his man up. Otherwise, I thought he played well and played hard as a safety. I hope he'll be back with us next year, but he's got to have a younger guy back there with him who can play centerfield.

Bradberry will be fine and Action Jackson will continue to improve, if we get some better coaching for them. Both young men lost a lot in the pre-season coaching shake up that caught everyone by surprise.

Captain, oh Captain... you're a tough little guy who can tackle, but the coverage skills aren't enough to take on the younger and bigger WRs they send at you. Maybe you could swing it as a safety, but I don't think nickle is your strength anymore.

Yep, the secondary is taking the heat, and they weren’t great but I cannot remember watching a season where the opposing QBs had so much time and space, and it didn’t matter how good or bad their oline was. Zero pass rush.

Whatever you say. Just know that most of the NFL teams use PFF in some form or fashion, to some extent, when they decide how well a player is doing. Teams as well as players refer to it when contract time comes up as well if it's to their advantage. So, it's really not a joke. You just have to discriminate between aspects of it as to its importance and value depending upon how you are using it.

    • There was no sex trafficking going on...100% fake news. Who are you saying makes these "women think this is the only thing they can do"?  You do realize the place was run by some middle aged women, right? Do you care about "the truth"?  Doesn't appear to be the case... https://nypost.com/2019/04/12/prosecutors-concede-no-human-trafficking-in-kraft-spa-case/  
    • Where to begin.... So I like that we picked up with Jon clearly having killing Dany on his mind from the beginning of the episode until he finally did it. I love that tortured look of knowing what must be done because it is right and utterly refusing to accept it until the moment it is done because of his love for her. Great acting sold all of that well. The first half was super tense because of it. Also the visual of the throne being melted and what that represented for the entirety of the series. Just a great scene. Then we move along to the time jump (which we know is a few weeks thanks to Tyrion's monologue). I liked that whole scene as well...what I DIDN'T like was treating Jon the way they did. The Unsullied basically strong-armed them into exiling the actual hero of Westeros. He legitimately saved almost every major character and/or their people at some point in this show and certainly saved the entirety of the North by killing Dany. And to top that off, he's a better person than pretty much anybody at this point. And for his trouble, he gets exiled. Now, because he is a good man, he is exiled to go be with people who also love and adore and follow him. So while it is BS, at least it's not a true punishment beyond his choice in the matter being taken. I mean, he did CHOOSE to go to The Wall the first time around to prove himself. But dammit, he should be praised the land over for what he did. Everybody would be bending the knee to a genocidal maniac or be slaughtered by a genocidal maniac were it not for him. Everybody's roles in the new Six Kingdoms, sure. It is fitting. Sure, Bran becoming king is a tad unexpected. But the way he acted about Tyrion proposing it ("why do you think I came all this way?"). I mean, WHAT?! At no point did you ever suggest that the throne was your endgame but suddenly, once Jon kills Dany, you're all about being the king? The ending montage was cool. Sansa going from scared little bird to the Queen in the North is awesome. Arya doing her own thing under the Stark banner is cool (goes from feeling like she'll never fit into her family because she didn't want to be a lady, to renouncing her name to become a Faceless woMan, to reclaiming her name and finding her place within the family, just a great character arc). Jon being treated as basically the king of the Wildlings is awesome. Do wish we knew how much time had passed that they could rebuild the castle in King's Landing so quickly. Or repair Winterfell such that the great hall was so pristine. Or know if they fixed the gap in the Wall that the Night King came through or if they leave it as there are no longer any White Walkers and no threat North of the wall that we know of. I guess I am satisfied in the ending....but it left a bad taste in my mouth about Jon. I felt for him because it's almost a cautionary tale of what happens to good men who remain good. They end up eventually punished for doing the right thing.
