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.

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.

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

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.
