Foles doing an exceptional job for a backup

@  Josh211 : (04 February 2018 - 09:00 PM)

Almost a TD. Hope it holds up.

@  Josh211 : (04 February 2018 - 08:47 PM)

If only first... I think he does, run wise.

@  Josh211 : (04 February 2018 - 08:05 PM)

Great playcall!

@  firstchance : (04 February 2018 - 08:02 PM)

Lordy, I wish Cam understood the game as much as Foles does.

@  Josh211 : (04 February 2018 - 07:10 PM)

I'll be here.

@  Josh211 : (04 February 2018 - 07:04 PM)

He sounds very high on the team.  I hope he's right.  Heck, I hope he's at least partially right.

I don't know. I'm kinda currently childishly-angry at Gruden only because he reminds me that I won't be able to watch the Panthers because of stupid ESPN.

 

Remember when MNF was available to everyone, and most every game was a marquee match-up?

 

Anyway, Jon does bring up some good points. Most notably, the theme that Cam (and the offense, in kind) is getting healthy at the right time.

 

I want to believe that it's still building, but our running game has been up and (mostly) down so much this year.

 

At any rate, I don't see us winning in both Atlanta AND New Orleans.

IMO Gruden was a great coach. Again IMO, Gruden got cheated out of making the SB with the Raiders because of the tuck rule. Brady shouldn't have been in his first SB. That was a fumble and the Raiders out played the Patriots in the New England snow.

 I thought it was a huge mistake when Al Davis let Gruden go and I don't think Tampa Bay ever wins a SB without "Chucky".

 

 Running the table is possible. Rivera usually does well late season but that's a tall order. Atlanta hasn't played well but they still look real good and the Saints are rolling, plus we gotta play both in their house. We also have to play the 7&2 Vikings.

 If we win those 3 games we can beat anybody.

Well.... I AGREE totally about the ESPN thing.  That SH*T irritates me to no end. I do not subscribe to the fancy crap on TV so we are closed out of our teams MNF appearance. I just can't justify paying the fee structure for one or two games. My satellite bill is high enough without adding another subscription. The game is always sold out at BofA so why can we not watch it over the air like the other games.??  I'll tell you why!!!! Just so ESPN can make millions of dollars on controlling the access..!!!  Pis*es me off to no end.!!!

 

Running game is improving..... and we can definitely win both of those games. Everything is dependent on the WILL to win.

Running the table.??  Hmm, don't know. Possible.?? YES. I still believe we can win "almost all" and get to the playoffs. From there it will depend on which team has the desire...

He may do this with all teams,, but Gruden seems to have always like the Panthers. When at Tampa Bay he seemed to always have a secret desire to be the Panthers coach.

Agreed. Sometimes he'll say things that make you think he is the Bill Walton of NFL commentators. But for a very long time he typically says very complimentary things more consistently about Carolina.

Gruden is alright..... He seems a little more realistic than some of the others, and seems more aware of the Panthers and the team's faults and strengths.  I don't mind his patently odd (weird.??) sayings on occasions. As long as it doesn't get too out of hand...

I listened to gruden during the Monday night game and he seemed to contradict himself at times. Taking gruden out of the equation, do the panthers have a chance to run the table? Depends on what offense shows up. Defense is there consistently. They have improved every game. Panthers need to score 35 or more each game. Defense will keep opponent score lower than 35.

I'm hoping that the buy week and the victory over the dolphins has our offense in sync with each other and Cam can get rid of the ball quickly and accurately.

To me I see the panthers building each position. QB needs to get with the program. He needs to be consistent. If we ever plan to be a Superbowl winner we need a QB who can pass accurately and execute plays quickly.

I feel that, if our running game gets hopping, that covers a lot of other woes.  I don't know that it's as good as it looked in the last 2 games, but if we get at least half that success on the ground each week, it would go a long way toward covering a bad day by Cam or a mediocre defensive day.

 

That to me is the secret to running the table: not that your QB, etc. has to have a great game each week, but rather that you are balanced enough so the other phases of the game step up and cover one phase that may be off or facing a bad matchup.

Balanced play is the secret as some have alluded to.... Example would be the Patriots. They frequently don't have all of their position players healthy or active, yet they are always a tough team to beat. The reason is NOT Brady, but he certainly is a big part of it. In our case, we just need to stay balanced. 
And YES, we could "run the table".... would never bet that way, but we have the personnel.

I think it's more likely we run the table than for the Saints. The Saints play the Rams(in LA) , Panthers the next week and then have the Falcons two of the next 3 weeks. Then finish against the Bucs in Tampa.

 I think we beat the Saints then they lose at least one to the Falcons and the Rams have a good chance at home of beating the Saints.

 

 The Falcons could still be the divisional winner but they have a tough schedule to. Seahawks in Seattle, Bucs (twice within 3 weeks) Vikings, Saints twice within 3 weeks and finish against us.

 

 I think the better team comes together and runs the table and I think that is the Panthers

Panthers need to score 35 points a game and let the defense continue lights out like they've been doing. Everything else will fall into place. If we can't score, there is no reason to make the playoffs.

I think a realistic worst case scenario for the stretch run is 3-3.  I think we handle the Jets on the road, Tampa and the Aaron Rodger-less Packers at our house.  The trick is winning against the red-hot Saints and Vikings in addition to a Falcons team gaining momentum.  Will we lose all three of those games? Probably not, but it wouldn't be a total shock if it were to happen.  Saints and the Falcons on the road are no easy tilts. I think the Vikings who are, while winning, not crushing their opponents in statement fashion being the most vulnerable.  They are kinda like us, winning on defense and putting up just enough points to seal the victory.

 

I honestly don't see us running the table because of these three games.  I think the likely scenarios for the Panthers are 2-1 or 1-2 in these games.  My gut feeling is we lose in New Orleans, beat the Vikings and I'm 50/50 on the Falcons game.  The Dirty Birds have ALWAYS had our number at their house with few exceptions and even though they are not the 2016 versions of themselves, I can't write them off...especially since they are starting to turn things around.

Is Rodgers coming back? I haven't heard any musings, and just scant speculation that he could come back in a "few" weeks.

Aaron broke his collar bone in week 6 meaning the first game he could come back is week 15 (against us).  If the Packers are out of the playoff hunt, they won't bother to bring him back because of a couple meaningless games.  I don't see it happening personally.  

 

I looked up their weeks 15,16 and 17.  The Packers have us, the Vikings and the Lions.  Top defenses in the League.  Would you expose your franchise QB coming off an 8 week injury layoff to those defenses for a slight playoff or no playoff scenario?  The Packers will most likely have 6-7 losses by the time they face us with Cleveland being the only assured win.  The Packers should keep him shut down the rest of the year if they were smart and take the higher draft position that they are not accustom to.  Everyone will give them a mulligan since Rodgers was hurt, so take advantage of it.

You know, I agree with this in theory.   Just there is no explaining or understanding how Rodgers thinks. And there is no accounting for how he wants to play.  Sure, the coaching staff COULD shut him down, but if HE wants to play, the chances are he WILL play.
