PFF Grades for Panthers

I predict that Carter will play better this year than both last year, so there you go.

That excuse doesn't work when you realize that Thomas Davis was suspended for the first four games last year. Shaq did not step up, he played far worse than Davis did when he returned.

Fans expected Shaq to flash, and play well, even take over the reins. He couldn't.

Shaq was starting during arguably our best defensive performance game 1 against the cowboys, and had 9 tackles and a sack.  Until he plays more games in his true role, you can't say he "can't".

Lot of things to notice here. One being that Cam truly no longer has to carry this offense. He has CMC, Moore, and Samuel as weapons (as well as Ian Thomas and Greg Olsen!). Taylor Moton shows a lot of promise for the OL, and if the team is able to cobble together some form of protection for Cam then we will have a top flight offense.

The defense was old. Peppers and TD will be gone. Kyle Love might not be back either. Kuechly is amazing and KK is capable of bouncing back. Fortunately, we've got some guys like Bradberry, Jackson, and Thompson that can be significant contributors to the defense.

When Dallas had no receivers? Okay.

It's the same thing that happened with Funchess, Butler, and Worley, all this young potential, almost no one admitting the obvious flaws.

I mean, I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree here.  All I'm saying is there isn't a big enough sample size to say Shaq can't thrive in TD's role, and not being asked to guard slot receivers 60% of the time.

I'm usually quick to move on from older players but in the case of TD I would be curious to know the thought process. 

I totally get moving on if he was expecting considerable money, but if he was willing to play on a cheap one year deal, it could possible be one less need to address this offseason.  He might not be the player he once was but I would think he would be better than whatever you are going to find later in draft in the short term at least.

If he would have been in a greatly reduced role he might not have wanted that and it would also impair the development of some of the younger players.  Maybe that was a large part of it.

    • If we had a tinfoil hat icon, I'd give it to you. This is some high-quality theorizing right here.
    • I wouldn't start Grier, but keep Allen as the starter to give him more seasoning. Yep, it has been a baptism by fire, but that's what happens in the NFL. Young QBs don't get thrown out there with perfect O-lines and innovative coaching -- they generally get thrown out there in desperation and into injury-riddled lineups. They get beat senseless, and then they either learn from their many mistakes or wither under the pressure. Almost all the good to great QBs in this league started off that way except for Rogers. That's what has happened here. The Kid came out firing on all cylinders better than anyone had a right to expect, but now he has returned to the mean for rookie QBs (and yes, he had one prior game's experience, but otherwise he was as close to a rookie as can be). Allen has to stick with it and suffer the lumps and learn from them. He won't on the bench and he won't get the leadership skills necessary if he does need to be the starting QB next season. I loved seeing Cam play but I just don't have much faith in his recovery from injury this time. Should Grier get into the games? Yes, indeed. If we are getting blown out, send him in, let him see the elephant (so to say). He might do something spectacular, but most likely will do the rookie QB mistake-filled shuffle, but we can go ahead and start getting some of those steps out of the way. Dropping Kyle as the starter, though? No. We may or may not have something in the Kid, and it will take time to tell. If we bail on him, we'll never find out until someone else picks him up and gives him a shot. 
    • #1 ron had to.  #2 is just flat out wrong.  norv wanted grier.  ron lets norv handle the O.  this makes #3 just incorrect.   norv loves grier.  he was taken as a project.  he did not show up like wilson and take the team over.  he's not ready, and was never expected to be ready.  he was here to sit behind cam and kyle and watch.  there is no conspiracy behind this.  the only reason he got taken at the bottom of the 3rd is our FO and coaches wanted him.   nobody else did.  their basket was attached to cam and cam only.   how do you get a 2nd qb ready when the 1st one isn't quite ready?  they only get to practice so much.  you may get your wish before the season is over.  its gonna probably be hilarious in the bad way
