FYI, chat isn't working and I'm doubtful it will be fixed by game time

Right for the last time.


Yes holding goes on all the time, I agree, it's a bug bear of mine how badly it is officiated. You're using whataboutism as an argument. 


But, given the game situation, and having just been hammered for holding, make sure you can't be called. Keep the clock moving. It's not like they were even marginal holds. 



Sounds like you’re suggesting we play against the Packers while mitigating the refs.


Should be that we just worry about playing the Packers, while the refs call the game fairly. I think that’s what we’re asking for.

Of course, but in the moment and on the field, you ain't going to win that battle. So play smart.

    • Yep and while I agree with Tepper, I put more of the blame on Reich. Not because of his time here or any ill feelings, I think he’s a fine man. And I think he could be a head coach. IF he’d let his coordinators coordinate the offense and defenses around the players strength and then stay as a game manager/overseer . But he won’t do that and won’t accept thinking about doing it. 
    • I think a lot of this stuff is true.    I also believe it's fairly clear that pretty much everyone involved had a part in the Panthers failing. I'm sorry, but it's clear Reich isn't a great HC. It's safe to say Tepper and his GM are also just as guilty. The GM gave up everything to get Young, and then surrounded Bryce with nothing to work with.    And Tepper is clearly meddling too much, and has created a bad culture in the organization. You cannot create stability if you're firing your coaches every year... Between his MLS and NFL franchises after this season is over he will have hired 10 head coaches in 8 seasons...    Reich deserved to be fired and he knew it was coming. Rhule deserved to be fired, the team was going nowhere with him. We knew Rivera was a lame duck coach the second Tepper bought the team. The firings were warranted, sure. But at the same time this isn't how you create stability around your shiny new QB... Now Bryce will have to learn a new offense next season, build relationships and trust with another staff. His development might already be screwed up now.    The real question is this: even if he manages to hire the right guy next time, will Tepper be able to stay out of the way and allow his employees to breathe? Or will he continue to be in the locker room, the training room, the film sessions, the scouting pro days and more? 
    • Imagine where this team would be if we blitzed more.    If you don't want to click on the link:    NFL standings ordered by total team sacks 1. Baltimore Ravens: 47 2. Buffalo Bills: 41 3. Miami Dolphins: 38 4. Dallas Cowboys: 37 5. Kansas City Chiefs: 37 6. Indianapolis Colts: 36 7. Los Angeles Chargers: 36 8. Washington Commanders: 35 9. Cleveland Browns: 34 10. San Francisco 49ers: 33 11. Minnesota Vikings: 32 12. Philadelphia Eagles: 32 13. Arizona Cardinals: 32 14. Pittsburgh Steelers: 32 15. Seattle Seahawks: 32 16. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: 31 17. Tennessee Titans: 29 18. Cincinnati Bengals: 28 19. Las Vegas Raiders: 28 20. New York Jets: 28 21. Green Bay Packers: 26 22. Los Angeles Rams: 25 23. New England Patriots: 24 24. Jacksonville Jaguars: 24 25. Houston Texans: 24 26. Denver Broncos: 23 27. Detroit Lions: 23 28. Atlanta Falcons: 22 29. New York Giants: 21 30. New Orleans Saints: 18 31. Carolina Panthers: 18 32. Chicago Bears: 17   The Colts currently have the sixth-most sacks on the season with 36. The Baltimore Ravens are comfortably at No. 1 with 47, but top three is definitely in reach for Indianapolis. Currently, the Miami Dolphins are third with 38 sacks on the year, just two more than Indianapolis.   As the Colts push for the playoffs, the pass rush will need to remain a factor. It’s not a coincidence that Indianapolis is riding a three-game winning streak at the same time the pass rush is dominating; the two are connected. In order to win in this league, especially late in the season, you have to be able to get after the quarterback. Indy is doing a good job of that right now
    • It does increase flexibility and reasons for trading down from (say) mid to late teens like 16/17/18/19 and gain picks too in the draft.
