PFF Grading: Panthers 2nd Overall On Season

Recommended Posts

I legitimately at times wonder how on board with the Star selection Ron was knowing it was going to possibly doom Sione's career. Given that Ron came out almost immediately and began alerting everybody that Star would be "starting" but playing an absurdly low amount of snaps for Ron's "rotation", I think it makes some sense.

 

 

You don't keep a blue chip prospect on the sideline to field a player who isn't good enough to even be worth a PS spot. Fua is one of the worst NFL players I have ever seen.

 

PFF graded Star lower than Fua vs. the Vikings. He's been quiet since the bye.

2 plays away from 4-1.  Potentially 2 more dropped passes away from 5-0.

 

This season has been a bitch.

 

It is what it is.

Frankly I don't care what PFF said but it's irrelevant all the same. You don't keep a top tier prospect like Star sidelined to give a player like Fua reps. Star will have his ups and downs as an exciting young rookie this year. Fua will consistently be terrible.

 

 

But I guess Ron has demonstrated that he prefers consistently terrible over inconsistent dominance.

Or, Star might be a little dinged up and needs the rest? Teams have been focusing on him hard since he started off like a madman.

Except a snap count that has been cut by a third since Week 3. Star is a monster but he is not well developed as a pass rusher and teams have been chopping his knees. Rather than risk him on the passing downs that teams have been forced to play thanks to our defense, the coaches have sat him out. He'll be fine.

again, it could be because he has been playing more 3 tech and not 1 tech.

star's ability to consistently play full time was an issue coming into the nfl.

 

he was overplayed in college...

We're top 5 in Aikman ratings as well. Were #3 before AZ, not sure where we are after this week but I'd guess back in t3.

Edit: #4 in Aikman ratings through week 6. Behind Seahawks, Chiefs, and Broncos. Only team in t10 with a losing record.
