Zone blocking?

Hey guys.

Bad loss. There's not much more you can say. In terms of opening game buzzkills, this one ranks right up there with the 2004 Green Bay "Steve Smith snaps his leg in half in the third quarter and ruins our playoff chances instantly" game.

Quick question that I would love to have resolved. After Dan Henning left and Jeff Davidson took over the OC position, we switched to a zone blocking scheme. The following year, in 2008, the Panthers had one of the most impressive rushing performances in league history. In 2009, despite Jake Delhomme having a mild seizure and Matt Moore taking the reigns, we still were the 3rd best rushing team in the league.

I haven't seen that type of production since Davidson left. Yes, we were third last year as well, but much of that was due to Cam hitting the 700 yard mark. Can someone explain why we haven't considered going back to the zone blocking scheme that allowed us to dominate for two years? Why do we insist on running out of the shotgun as opposed to using a two-back backfield? Where are the counter plays that Deangelo had so much success with? Why can't we run the damn ball anymore??

Thanks!
