Panthers Film Analysis: Will the Panthers increase play-action passing under Norv Turner?

The goal of each pre-season is to evaluate ninety players in hopes of trimming down the roster to fifty-three players by Labor Day Weekend. That is also the case with Carolina Panthers Womens Torrey Smith Jersey , but they have their work cut out due to the new offensive system being installed under Norv Turner. As Ron Rivera stated in his press conference yesterday, former Panthers coordinator Rob Chudzinski was a member of Turner’s staff in San Diego. There is a familiarity of the base concepts, but with Turner at the helm the offense will receive a first hand glimpse into the playbook. Increased play-action?Based on two pre-season games, Turner is focusing on increasing the play-action passing game. Cam Newton’s success on play-action has been mixed, however. For reference, Newton’s play-action success was average in 2017 too. Despite a low frequency of these throws, Newton’s completion percentage was 62.9%, 7.0 YPA Authentic Cam Newton Jersey , and an NFL passer rating of 96.7. (via PFF)However, PFF does count RPO’s as play-action passes. Newton’s splits were more clear in this regard. After watching some of Newton’s play-action throws this pre-season, the consensus I found in his lackluster production originate from his mechanics when he’s executing the fake. This is a textbook fake from Newton. He reaches the ball out to Christian McCaffrey, which draws the linebackers towards the line of scrimmage. Eventually, Alex Armah is allowed to slip towards the flat by himself. On the contrary, here is an example of Newton’s poor mechanics when faking the hand off. The result is an incredibly difficult throw into a tight window, which results in an interception. Yes, Newton under threw the ball too but the window could have been wider if the linebacker was removed.Miami’s linebackers don’t bite on the action Authentic DJ Moore Jersey , which gives them ample room to pick up Greg Olsen. With RPO’s the fake doesn’t have to be executed perfectly, which is why I hope Turner installs more of these concepts. Newton is able to read the boundary safety dropping into the box before the snap. This provides him the signal to target Jairus Wright on the back shoulder fade. The reduced split Wright takes up makes this an easier throw for Newton.I have long been a proponent of increasing the play-action concepts for Newton. Despite his production this pre-sesaon, there is evidence on the whole that play-action is more effective than non play-action. In addition, the long held belief that rushing the football well leads to more play-action success is also being questioned. Play-action passes should be a staple of the Panthers offense in 2018, but Newton has to become more consistent when he’s delivering the fake.It’s time to take the bubble wrap off Taylor Moton Ready or not, but Taylor Moton will likely be starting at right tackle for the injured Daryl Williams when the Panthers kick off the 2018 regular season against the Dallas Cowboys. Williams has been diagnosed with a torn MCL and dislocated patella and currently does not have a timetable for his return. Until the Panthers share more information on Williams’ rehab, all we can do at this point is speculate as to when he’ll be back, so let’s speculate! Dr. David Chao at National Football Post said this in 2015 about MCL injuries:Dr. Chao then noted the Broncos Shane Ray had suffered a high grade MCL sprain and would miss 4-6 weeks. This is generally consistent with published information from the University of California San Francisco which says the MCL “usually responds very well to non-surgical treatment” and a Grade 3 tear usually takes four to eight weeks to heal. I’m not a doctor Authentic James Bradberry Jersey , but let’s assume Williams will be out eight weeks since he also had the issue with the patella. That puts his return sometime at the end of September which is Week 4 of the NFL season. Carolina conveniently has a bye during Week 4 which means Daryl might only miss the team’s first three games. (Or he could be out a lot longer, we just don’t know yet.)An eight week recovery leaves Taylor Moton starting at right tackle against the Dallas Cowboys, Atlanta Falcons, and Cincinnati Bengals. Each of these teams had good defenses last year with Atlanta having the No. 8 scoring defense (19.7 PPG), Dallas the No. 13 (20.8 PPG), and Cincinnati the league-average No. 16 (21.8 PPG), per ESPN. Frankly, I’m excited to see what Moton will do as a starter against quality opponents. I’m on record as saying the Panthers wasted Moton’s rookie season last year by giving the second round pick just 64 offensive snaps while Amini Silatolu somehow played 256 snaps. It’s time to take off Taylor’s bubble wrap. The best case scenario Womens David Mayo Jersey , of course, is Moton holds his own as a fill-in starter and Williams returns somewhere around the Week 4 bye. We can all then breathe a sigh of relief in knowing Moton can provide solid depth for the rest of the year and potentially start next year if Daryl Williams can’t be re-signed. And who knows, maybe Moton steps in at left guard later this season if he looks good early on? Crazier things have happened. We saw virtually nothing from Taylor Moton during his rookie season. He’s an enigma. He’s a mystery. He’s all potential with no real track record. There will be no more hiding in 2018. The spotlight on Taylor Moton will be bright. Let’s hope he’s ready for prime time.
