Also it’s just weird how some posters relish other random players failing. Fields is just a kid and has nothing to do with the Panthers.

Unless it benefits the Panthers I don’t really enjoy watching anyone get destroyed. 

Agree. I felt bad for Fields yesterday. I also wanted him here, but happy with how things have worked out so far

If we put serious focus on beefing up the offensive line in the off-season, look out. I really like Sam and we need to keep him protected and healthy 

We F’in better. There’s no bigger weakness on the team. Hopefully, the rookies get in the lineup due to getting it versus having to play due to injuries, so we can see how they do. That will at least tell us how much we need. Elflein isn’t going to magically be better at C so I’d say we’ll likely need a tackle and center and more depth. I’d be happy with an all OL draft since we don’t have a 2nd and we might have a later first.

The crazy thing about Darnold I think a lot of people are over looking is his decision making. He hasn’t had a lot of clean pockets, let’s face it our OL isn’t great. What is great about that scenario though is the fact that Darnold has only made one errenous mistake with that shovel pass int. He has only made roughly 3-4 passes that could’ve been ints from my count and comparing that to season past at any point in the season is amazing. He currently has 6 total TDs to 1 INT, at no point in his Jets career was his ration this good. If Joe Brady could get his redzone play calling together he might be 10 to 1, but bygones are bygones. Looking forward we just have to keep building his confidence add more wrinkles to schemes and we might be looking at one of the biggest trade steals of the decade.

Pisses me off. All the talking heads are protecting themselves today by trashing Nagy. Maybe he is terrible but he didn't want to play Fields and now we've seen why. Their oline is terrible and could have gotten him hurt. Dalton is mediocre but he has a lot of experience and can process faster. I don't know if Fields will be any good but if he keeps playing behind that oline we won't get a chance to find out because he'll be ruined.

 

That said, I'm happy with Sam.

Kinda like posters here did with Darnold?  It seems to be a given that Darnold is garbage and will never be anything other. While Fields should be given the benefit of the doubt. 

The reality is all young QBs need coaching and a good team around them to succeed.  None of these kids can carry a team all by themselves.  Expecting any qb to carry a team all by themselves is ridiculous.  I keep hearing folks say this, but he can't carry a team on his shoulders, that is the dumbest poo I've ever heard. No qb can carry a team all by themselves. 

Rant over.

It all makes sense when you realized years ago these folks have no idea what they are talking about.

Sam Darnold had three years as a starting QB before the Jets wrote him off.  Whether that shows itself to be the right or wrong decision, it was three years.

We're ready to declare Fields a flop after his first start as a rookie, against the #5 rushing defense and the #5 pass defense?  Come on man.  That story isn't anywhere near written yet.

Let’s get past the Matt Moore/Kyle Allen 5 game threshold and see what we think. 

sigh...

These comparisons are ridiculous.     None of those two players are even remotely comparable to Sam.

 

Matt Moore, during his time with Carolina, played a total of 13 games throughout 3 seasons.    Was he a backup at that point, I don't know.   

Kyle Allen's "best" statistical season had him start 5-3, then lost 8 STRAIGHT GAMES to finish the season.

(Suffice it to say, i just don't see the team losing 8 straight...)

 

This whole "waiting for the other shoe to drop" is so NY Jets-esque.    We are not the Jets.   We have competent Coaching, Ownership(now), and PLAYERS.

You're not picking up what I'm putting down, not comparing the players.

Hmm...I think you're right.

You're actually telling OTHERS to stop it with the Kyle Allen/Matt Moore Game 5 threshold.

My deepest apologies for my knee-jerk response to you, friend.  🥴

The biggest thing I saw from Fields' debut was something that I heard a lot of scouts talking about with him and that he has a VERY slow delivery and it was clear in that game. The Bears suck and their gameplan was bad I agree but watch and you will see a lot of defenders getting around the WRs to break up the plays. This is because of that slow delivery. Once he pulls back to throw, the defender can see where the ball is going to and they have enough time to jump the pass. That's going to be a major issue for him in the future if he doesn't learn how to get it out of his hand faster. Someone is going to need to change the way he throws the ball or he won't make it in the NFL.

It wasn’t the delivery. Guys weren’t open. The Bears didn’t protect their QB. 20 drop backs to throw, 13 times it was with the minimum protection. On those 20 attempted throws, only 29% of the time was a WR remotely open. There was no separation because the Browns found out Nagy wasn’t changing his game plan for Fields compared to Dalton. 
 

Miles said after the second series they felt the Bears made it easier for them because they weren’t taking advantage of Fields traits and it allowed their secondary to sit in the 7-10 yard range while their dline feasted against minimal blocking. That’s why national media and former players are demanding Nagy be fired immediately. 
 

This is why Nagy is considering giving up play calling again.

this was most of the game offensively. 5 man protection with no chipping or help from the TE or RB. Kid is getting killed in 2 seconds and no WR has won their route. Dalton back there doesn’t help. If the ball comes out any sooner no WR is ready and it likely leads to a muffed catch that turns into an INT. 
 

If you spend the whole game calling plays like this it doesn’t matter who the QB is when the line is getting abused like that.

    • I don't think it has anything to do with moving the team. The Market in the Carolina's is one of the fastest growing in the country. There is a reason Tepper is making the moves he is with the Rock Hill Complex and the MLS Team. In 5 to 10 years everything he is invested in will be worth double. He may not know football but this kind of business stuff is his bread and Butter and a major reason he wanted to buy the team. As far as the NFL and the football stuff, It all falls on Goodell and how much of a piece of human trash he is. It is the same story with Rob Manfred and the MLB. David Stern was in that same camp but look at Adam Silver now and what he has done with the NBA. The NBA is the fastest growing sport in the world and at the best place it's been since the world wide draw of Michael Jordan in the 90's 25 years ago. Even though super teams are still a think there are actual signs of parity now that haven't been seen in the NBA in decades. With all of the positive rule changes and things Adam Silver has done since taking over, He is easily the best commissioner in professional sports. Meanwhile guys like Goodell and Manfred are turning their sports more and more into the WWE each year while only caring about making the owners and themselves as much money as possible. They don't give a damn about the actual product they're putting out there. Player safety, cheating??? They let their public relation teams try and manipulate the media into promoting that these things are their top priorities and when these issues actually make it to the forefront, they show their true colors and do the exact opposite of what should be done and go back to their PR teams to sweep the poo under the rug while trying to pull the blinders down over their customers and players faces.
    • Basically dont draft a one dimensional player top top and a meh athlete. Fat run stoppers can be had rounds 2-5. Phil has look decent for example. Roy has his moments as well... But Brown... this I run a 5.2 whatever he did and I'm mostly a run stuffer but not really...is looking as busty as  42 year old mom on the rebound. Very dissapointed.
    • This coaching staff is too terrible for literally any QB/player to overcome. I've never seen anything like this in the history of the Panthers, even in our 2-14 season with a lame duck Fox. That team was bad because of Pickles. Insert Matt Moore or who ever at the time and that same team would have gone 6-10 or Panthers classic 7-9. People are mad because the talent on this team is good enough to make the playoffs. When you look at the roster it isn't crazy to expect playoffs even with a second year coaching staff. The talent on this team sometimes overcomes the lack of coaching and wins games. It was like Rivera's tenure. The team constantly won in spite of the coaching and when they needed the coaches to do their jobs ("cough cough" Super Bowl "cough cough') They failed the players every time.  4 QB's now and the same terrible results. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize what the problem is. Same thing goes for the defense. As soon as a team counters what our defense is throwing at them and they need the coaches to counter, they get nothing. Literally, our coaches do nothing, week after fuging week. I'd be more than happy to have Cam and Sam back next season to compete for the starting job as long as we have a coaching staff in place with legitimate NFL experience.
