The Carolina Panthers can end up being the NFL’s laughing stock if they receive more negative press. Well, some arrived on Thursday. Dan Orlovsky, a former NFL quarterback, and current ESPN analyst, just gave the Panthers a less-than-flattering review, focusing on their formulaic approach. Orlovsky spoke about how Carolina started their plays in Week 2 using shotgun sets during Thursday’s NFL Live show.
Dan Orlovsky of ESPN criticizes the Panthers for their offensive play-telegraphing
He demonstrates that a run-pass option (RPO) or a straight pass can be determined by how running back Christian McCaffrey is positioned in relation to quarterback Baker Mayfield.
To be fair to offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo, it might be a stretch to call this “coaching malpractice.” Even though these may not be “cherrypicked” examples, McCaffrey’s positioning during the game isn’t particularly unusual.
In fact, on some of the plays that afternoon when McCaffrey was behind Mayfield, the Panthers called for passes.
Orlovsky was correct, though, in that this offense has been unacceptable. And changing their running back’s position out of shotgun won’t be enough to solve their difficulties.
HC Ravens CB Marcus Peters’ performance in his first game back from injury is discussed by John Harbaugh.
Marcus Peters, a cornerback for the Baltimore Ravens, tore his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in the last stages of training camp, forcing him to miss the whole 2021 season. Peters returned to the Ravens lineup for his season debut in Week 2 of the 2022 NFL Season. In order to ease him back into playing form and help him regain the game’s pace, he didn’t take part in every defensive snap.
When asked how Peters was doing the day after his first game, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh replied, “He was good,” in a press conference on Monday. He was competent.
As you saw, we had him on a bit of a pitch count because it was kind of the first game. He’s going to want one or two plays back, for sure. He seems to be sensing the game’s tempo a little. He will consider that and decide, “Okay, I have to keep moving forwards.” He’s a seasoned athlete and one of the league’s best corners. Keep getting him back into that form because he most surely has been. I’m happy to see him playing again, Harbaugh remarked.
For the secondary, getting a player like Marcus Peters back is essential. Yes, he had problems in his first game back, but athletes need time to get used to playing again after a catastrophic injury. He will improve with more time, and the Ravens will be able to reduce big plays and add the depth in the secondary that they have previously lacked.
