Observations from Week 1

The Panthers look like we can be a playoff team this year, if the issues that need to be addressed are. 

Did you notice how on one play, we only had one man to the left of center, and on some plays, gross played the "te" slot, and olsen was on the left side. I like this approach, in stacking one side. We certainly need the help with the running game.

Did you notice how every skill position player that played excluding Brockel and Hartstock had a reception( Smith, Naanee, Lafell, Olsen, Shockey, Williams, Stewart, Goodson).. 

I saw a lot of 2 WR, TE lined up off the line sets. This puts our best 3 or 4 out, instead of having Edwards out, we could bring shockey and olsen. In fact, I was dissapointed that the panthers didn't have SHOCKEY out on the last play. They had (Goodson, Naanee, Smith, Olsen, Lafell). Shockey could have powered his way past that defender. He was 1 yd short of the first down, just as Newton was 1 yd short of the Panthers single game passing record- Chris Weinke 423 yds.

 

Looks like there were some breakdowns in coverage, but for the most part we held our own keeping Fitzgerald and Heap in check. I was dissapointed in the run defense SHOCKER. We need to bring in a big run stopper soon, so he can learn the defense. I liked dropping hardy/johnson into coverage. I didn't like Pugh in w/ Godfrey at nickel.. it didn't work, we need to bring Butler in in those situations. 

 

Did you notice how we didn't go for the field goal when we were on the 35. THATS A 53 YD FIELD GOAL... Punt coverage needs better players, we need connor, senn, hardy, lafell good tacklers out on pt. Penalties,

Rivera needs to buckle down on the discipline of these guys. 

YES WE CAM!!!!

We might have a shot at beating the Packers..

 

We did get lucky a couple of times, roughing the passers, fumbles..
