The thing is that the PanthersonhItn

are in the same h tunobeclass as those teams. It's only year 2 of the rebuild. All the talk about playoffs was way too premature.

Not having the best player in the nfl active has a pretty big impact. Panthers at full strength are certainly a playoff team. But no Christian, no horn, no Thompson.. having 3x the turnovers and barely losing…

1st INT one of the guards got pushed right in front of him as he threw it. Couldn't step forward on the throw.

2nd INT was bad because he threw to the wrong side of DJ. 3rd INT was bad also, but when you are behind the sticks because Miller is utterly worthless, you are going to have to take a chance.

 

Lesson of the story is someone needs to take a baseball bat to John Miller and end his career. I think putting a WR at RG couldn't be any worse. 

Honestly, whether he could step up into it or not, that first throw was just a bad decision.  DJ was bracketed.  Now, he may have forced it because he's comfortable with DJ and is feeling pressure before it's there so he just tried it, but none of them should've been thrown, imo.  

That being said, I 100%, completely agree with you on John Miller.  I dont just want him benched, I want him released.  I dont give a flying poo...  there is absolutely no way Jordan or Brown could be worse than this guy.  Promote both of them and get Miller off of this fuging roster.

Barely losing? The Eagles came from behind and took the win away from the Panthers. Even at full strength, the Panthers are not a playoff team. The Oline is too bad and some of us said they shouldn't have signed Erving and Elf on the first day of free agency. Even fully healthy, the Oline didn't look good.

Sam is probably not the long term answer at QB either. I said when Sam was traded for, he should get this chance they are giving him. Early returns were promising, but he has looked pretty bad the more games are played. Like David Carr all those years ago, maybe Sam's time in NY ruined him as a starter.

CMC wasn't going to stop that poo show today.  Hubbard played and ran well.  Darnold played like poo, OL played like poo, and the defense fuging folded like a lawn chair bought off the top of a grocery store freezer.

Joe Brady is the problem (not that I absolve Darnold today, because he was terrible too). I have never seen such terrible situational play calls during in my life with this level of talent on offense. We don't throw to Marshall at all, Robby is.....idk what Robby is right now but he's flat out terrible with his route running and has been lazy . Hubbard was getting yards all game and we decide to get pass happy when it's clear as day the interior was not handling the twist stunts well and giving up immediate pressure. DJ had Slay on him, but there is a way to create mismatches to free him up. No drag routes, no quick slants, no screens on the edges to take advantage of the soft zones the Eagles were playing. None of this makes any sense for someone who is supposed to be an offensive prodigy or whatever he's supposed to be.

 

We are the most obvious team in the NFL on 3rd down and situational play calls because the coordinator thinks that this is LSU and we're in the SEC. We don't have the O-Line to act as if we can do what we want, even if you know it's coming. We can't walk into games and run the game plan without having to make adjustments at halftime. Overall, this is the problem with designing an entire offense around C-Mac because without him, nothing has looked particularly good the past 2 weeks, including Darnold. If Brady cannot adjust, then he needs to go and have Sean Ryan take over playcalling.

Secondaries are starting to straight squat on our intermediate routes. For the most part, appears Brady doesn’t believe we have the horses on the O-line, probably specifically on the interior, to allow us to counter vertically. I’d be willing to bet that Robby after that last interception was pissed it wasn’t a go route because the DB’s are squaring them up and flat-footed. 

It’s a problem without a clear answer in the zero-sum context of the NFL. Starting O-Line are not being passed around the league; they’re highly coveted. I say at least dial up some shots with max protection just to show the vertical. Maybe even see what Marshall can do in that respect given what he did in college.

 CMC certainly tilts the equation because he’ll still regularly win in the tighter windows. At the end of the day, every other phase of the team is ahead of the rebuilding curve. Just have to hope the young dudes develop and management applies our limited resources towards addressing it in the offseason.
