As a Panthers
fan, we have all the tools needed to win games.
If pisses me off to no end when I hear RR and Nakamura say, "we had alot of positives".
Here are some of my random opinions.
Cam needs to be taught how to read defenses. When you are not allowed to fully adjust the plays at the line, you are going to lack confidence w/ receivers. At this point you are more of a manager, rather than a QB.
That is one of reasons he is not involved w/ receivers and coaches on the sideline. We are too deep in the season to learn how to become a complete Qb. He is being feed plays instead of calling plays. That is the reason he dosen't wear an armband.
IMO that is why he is not given an opportunity to audible like the other Qbs throughtout the league. All those tangibles are rotting away. Natural ability is perishable, if not refined properly.
The HC needs to learn when to use his timeouts.
If given the opportunity to be a HC again, never hire your friends.
Hire coordinators w/ experience and whose stats suggest winning.
The DC needs to order up more blitz packages and man to man coverages. `
-Gotta apply pressure
Study the falcons secondary and see how they make it difficult for the QBs to get a read.
The GM needs to sign more offensive lineman and DBs come draft time.
The OC needs to go back to traditional plays and make adjustments before 2 qtrs are up.
On the sidelne involve Cam with the upcoming plays, in the midst of the receiver corps.
Incorporate screens and dumps.
Triple option is good, get rid of the the Wildcat. When was the last time you've seen Brady, Manning,or _______ line up as a receiver?
Teach Cam to sell the PA better and with more consistently. RG3 has it mastered.
Abandon the wildcat if it involves a RB under center.
Panthers cannot win games with a pourous offensive line.
Include checkdown option for majority of the passing plays.
Run the ball. Keep double trouble + 1 tandem employed.
Tolbert is not being used effectively, like he was in SD.
-The man can carry an offense (catching or going up the gut), when given the opportunity (3-5yrds). P.Rivers would love to have him back.
, GB, NYG and TB to name a few operate with a two Qb set. Here is what I propose.
Dump or trade Jimmy Clausen
, Armanti Edwards
, Ritchie Brockel, Ben Hartsock
, Sione Fua
and Haruki Nakamura
ASAP. Sign 6'5 WR Lamont Bryant off PS.
This leaves 5 spots for more OL and secondary.
Bryant's collegiate positions include WR, S,TE, Qb, & ST (2 blocked field goals).
His pro stats include a 79yrd TD from JC in a preaseason game. He has a fiery attitude, which IMO would be a plus on this Panther squad. Smith and Hardy can't be the only ones yelling on the sidelines.
Get Gettis more time to see if he is worth keeping.
It is time to reconsider Beason's contract. I like the guy, but he is not missed this season it's the secondary and their man to man coverage.
Celebrations from Cam, Smitty, Tolbert...etc don't bother me. I celebrate after every successful play.
I would love to see an interview from D. Anderson.
I hate it when the offense leaves the huddle early.
