Fewell says it's just another game but is it??

Recommended Posts

For those who don't know, we picked up Fewell after Jacksonville fired him after he led the Jaguars to 2nd against the pass in 2018 and 1st in 2017. Lo and behold, he moves to the Panthers and suddenly we have the number 1 pass defense through 4 games. So is this just  another game or a chance to show them they made a mistake letting him go.

Is he going to coach the secondary more intensely?

No I think his players are going to ball out this week as their intensity increases to play for Fewell. The article talks about his personality.

We have not faired well when it comes to revenge. Pittsburgh last year with Tepper and McCoy this year against Tampa. Lets just ball and get this W

or the "blood and guts" game going further back

hated that game but love this quote from the article;

 

Quote

 

I’m not saying this Panthers team is definitely cursed by Steve Smith, but it’s worth considering. Before the game yesterday, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported that the team didn’t cut him because of performance, but because they were concerned about dividing the locker room. Smith apparently had questions about Cam Newton, and the Panthers coaches and front office wanted the team to belong to Cam, and Cam alone. They also thought they could find younger, cheaper receivers elsewhere. Whatever the case, Smith isn’t too worried about his long-term future with his former team.

As he told ESPN’s Ashley Fox this week, “When that time comes, I’ll be able to walk back in those doors and retire as a Panther and have the respect and not have such a split and not allow the few individuals in their temporary residence there to alter a decade of what I’ve done and experienced in that great organization. … I was there 13 years, and the way I look at it and what I was told, I’ll be there a lot longer than they will.”

You would hope he has given the coaching staff some good insights on the Jags. 

Whether we actually implement them in a gameplan is a different story.

McCoy gets another chance next week to get payback again.

Exactly. While obviously the Bucs have different coaches, Fewell is very knowledgeable about coverages and how to play other offenses.  I also understand he helps out a good deal with gameplanning.

Why was he fired?

New staff wanted to bring in their own people.

Oh weird. I thought Marrone had been their coach for a while.

Their head coach is Bruce Ariens.

I’m talking about the jags. Fewell had them 1st and 2nd in the league 2017 and 2018. That’s why I wondered why he was fired and we were able to get him. Unless I’m missing some info that doesn’t make sense.

 Fewell worked in Jacksonville last year under Doug Marrone. Arians is coaching the Bucs.
