Although the Panthers' vertical stretch offense relies on downfield throws, Rivera said Newton needs to learn there are times when shorter passes are better.
“It's not just to advance the ball quickly. But it's to work the different levels, different options and different combinations that are there. They take this away, come down and get this,” Rivera said. “I think sometimes he holds it a little bit. He's waiting for that guy to clear, and sometimes it's too late.http://blogs.charlotte.com/pan...s-pressing.html

If he doesn't have as many opportunities, maybe we'd be better off runhing a pro-style offense instead of the read-option out of shotgun and we might actually be able to sustain some consistency. Just my opinion, but Rivera and Cam seem to be taking the brunt of the pain for the faults of an offense that was put in place by Chud. When you take multiple snaps out of the shotgun within the 5 yard line you end up looking like NCST, not an NFL professional football team. The only difference is that Mike Glennon made the throw....

I thought Barnidge looked great in the pre-season, and the coaches have praised him, but he's had nearly 0 opportunities since the season began. Our TEs were one of Cam's biggest boons last year.
