MAR heard you on the 4-3-3 anyway

I think it’s been his plan all along, just was hard without many winger options. He’s a really solid coach. Love his willingness to change things up and I love his transparency.

Reyna is so fast. Also the dribble that put DeAndre Yedlin on his butt. Yo.

McKinze Gaines is fast too but he had trouble controlling the ball at his feet. 

Hope Fuchs is OK. 

Good game today by Charlotte FC.

Never really been a soccer/futbol fan but I went to my first Charlotte FC game on Saturday and the atmosphere was pretty electric.  I am all in on the hype - I just ordered like $250 in apparel lol.

I'm still trying to figure out our roster.  I don't know these guys nearly well enough to pick them out on the field during the game.  But the way you guys are describing Fuchs, he sounds kinda like the Roy Kent of Charlotte FC.

Hahah Fuchs is our Roy Kent, that’s pretty spot on and fugging hilarious. The supporters section should do something with that. Not exactly sure what but something.

Honest opinion, Gaines kinda sucks. He’s fast and that’s it. Can’t utilize it at all

Yeah, plus him wearing that oversized jersey makes him look much suckier too lol.  Rooting for him though, maybe all those missed opportunities helps him improve.

    • I personally think they should have moved Pride to Safety.  Plays well in soft zone coverage (facing the QB, in other words) and he has some speed and size.  Oh well.
    • well, he needs more than that.  He needs playcalling.   You can have a decent OL and talent....but if you are running a predictable and unimaginative O then your talent basically all gets downgraded.  McAdoo still has some legit redflags.  While Eli did have 2 great statistical seasons while he was OC,  McAdoo's head coaching tenure was defined by predictable and very unimaginative offense.   So there still are some question marks on if Eli (a SuperBowl/Pro Bowl ) QB simply took advatnage of OBJ being an intital problem for folks to cover and it not being create actual playcalling and scheme.   And it also makes me nervous the league almost deemed him unemployable until we gave him this OC job.  Heck, if Matt Rhule said no thanks to Ben twice being his QB coach.....then suddently his is good enough to be OC. 
    • Schuyler Callihan chimed in with a rookie Camp observation as well... They really didn't throw the ball downfield much with Corral over the weekend. It was a lot of underneath stuff and some play-action that had him rolling to both sides. When he did stand firm in the pocket, he looked comfortable. The five and seven step drops are something that will take some time for him to get used to, but this offense will primarily run out of the gun anyway. On tape, Corral had one of the quickest releases I've seen. In person, it looked even quicker. It's a natural, effortless motion that is something I haven't seen before. He was very accurate with the ball and on the few shots they did take downfield, he put it right on the money.  Link Not sure about the shotgun thing. I don't remember enough about McAdoo's offense to know if that's true. Callihan did also have this to say about first round pick Ikem Ekwonu's camp... Ekwonu already looks the part. It's easy to see why everyone in the Panthers' building calls him a tone-setter. There were a couple of times that he nearly ran the guy (another lineman) holding the pad into the ground. He's just a massive human being who has tremendous strength. He'll be starting at left tackle from day one.
