Something unusual I noticed

Recommended Posts



Noticed that in the game day thread.

It was nice to be on the other end of things for once.

Not trying to bash Cam but he never had the presence of mind to hurry up and snap the ball

If you are not trying to Bash Cam you don’t have to make the comment. let’s be happy we have 2 capable starting QB. This will always be Cam’s team. He is a League MVP and the franchise. If both QB are on the block an injured Cam Newton will bring back more assets.

It’s a legit observation. I have seen others here put forward the theory that this was due to Ron wanting to rest his defense, so Cam was directed to let play clock get down as far as possible. I think what we’re seeing with Allen strongly suggest Cam is mostly the impetus for the play clock frequently getting to zero and us having unnecessarily burn timeouts.

Having said that I would still hold the coaching staff partly responsible. If you don’t hold a franchise qb accountable to improve his pre snap routine by the time he’s 30, it makes me wonder how serious you are about holding him to the same level of accountability you hold others. Because this issue isn’t an occasional or trivial thing, as any serious Panthers fan can attest.

i think its a pretty good sign. the kid has a lot on his plate, a lot, and he's not so overwhelmed  that he's missing taking advantage of free yards or making them burn a TO

1:55 left in the 3rd quarter

Houston is shuffling personnel. Carolina rushes to the line to take the snap and Houston has to burn a timeout. 

:28 left in the 4th: 

Houston gets the ball down by 6 but has no time outs.

I'm used to seeing that in a Panthers game. Just not used to it being the other team that had to burn the timeout.

 

Was certainly refreshing to see 2 consecutive games where we salvage time outs and stay generally free of false starts.

Something equally important I've noticed is how rarely we've been penalized so far this season. We're tied with Indianapolis for least in the league with only 20 penalties called against us so far (they have been penalized 11 less yards, though). This team is very disciplined and playing the game right.

The truth hurts. It's no coincidence the past two weeks have shown a faster pace and no need to burn timeouts.
