There is always plenty to hate about NFL officiating
Plays to Love www.pantherscheapshop.com , Plays to Hate (aka “P2L, P2H”) looks at the most significant plays in swinging momentum and impacting the eventual outcome of the game.  so we will only focus on the plays on the field, not the refs.Three plays to love2nd Quarter 15:00 – Panthers 7, Ravens 7. Ravens ball 2nd-and-4 at BLT 31 The Situation: The first quarter consisted of one long Ravens touchdown drive followed by one long Panthers touchdown drive and a 7-7 tie. Baltimore had just started its second drive with six-yard reception as the first quarter ended.The Play: Kyle Love came unblocked up the middle and drilled Alex Collins the moment he took the handoff. Love’s huge hit jarred the ball loose and Vernon Butler recovered the fumble at the Baltimore 12. Three plays later, Cam Newton hit Greg Olsen for a touchdown and a 14-7 Panthers lead.2nd Quarter 5:26 – Panthers 14, Ravens 7. Panthers ball 3rd-and-1 at BLT 45 The Situation: Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good. The Play(s): Facing 3rd-and-1, Cam Newton was pressured on a pitch to D.J. Moore and the errant pitch hit Moore’s hand then bounced off the ground as a fumble. Fortunately for the Panthers, the ball popped right back up into Moore’s arms and he ran for 37-yard gain to the Baltimore 17. Two plays later, Cam threw a laser to Devin Funchess but a Ravens defender tipped the ball up in the air just past the line of scrimmage. Christian McCaffrey alertly adjusted his route, leaped in the air, and high-pointed the ball for a zany touchdown reception before any Ravens defenders could pick it off. This drive could’ve ended with a lost fumble or an interception, but instead the Panthers ended up with seven points. To quote Napoleon Dynamite, “Luckyyyyy!” 2nd Quarter 0:05 – Panthers 21, Ravens 7. Panthers ball 4th-and-7 at BLT 49 The Situation: This was bizarre, but effective. Instead of attempting a 62-yard field goal to end the first half Carolina Panthers T-Shirt , the Panthers took a delay of game. Taylor Heinicke was inserted at quarterback to attempt a Hail Mary because Cam’s shoulder wasn’t feeling up to making the long throw.The Play: The Ravens dropped multiple defenders into deep coverage leaving Greg Olsen wide open off the line. Here’s what Heinecke said happened next, “Greg was yelling at me while he was going out for the route. ‘Taylor! Taylor! Taylor!’ That’s all he was yelling as the ball was getting snapped.” Heinicke hit Olsen for an easy 13-yard gain to the Baltimore 36 with :02 left, setting up a successful 54-yard Graham Gano field goal and a 24-7 halftime lead.Three Two plays to hate1st Quarter 10:23 – Panthers 0, Ravens 0. Ravens ball 2nd-and-14 at BLT 46 The Situation: The Ravens faced 2nd-and-14 from near midfield on the game’s opening drive. They picked up five yards to now face an apparent 3rd-and-9, but the refs threw a flag after the play had ended. The Play: Dontari Poe was called for a 15-yard unnecessary roughness penalty for apparently making contact with a Ravens player while Poe was on the sideline! He wasn’t even in the game! Instead of 3rd-and-9 from the Carolina 49, it was now 1st-and-10 from the Carolina 34. The Ravens ended up scoring a touchdown on this drive thanks in large part to Poe’s dumb penalty. 1st Quarter 7:57 – Panthers 0, Ravens 0. Ravens ball 2nd-and-10 at CAR 14 The Situation: The Ravens took the game’s opening possession on a long drive down to the Panthers 14. The Play: Alex Collins took a handoff up the middle. Eric Reid came untouched from the safety spot but allowed Collins to spin right out of his tackle and into the end zone for a touchdown. Thomas Davis fought off a block but whiffed on his tackle attempt as well. Better tackling by Reid and Davis would’ve forced a 3rd-and-4 instead of a Ravens score. Closing it out and summing it upMan, only two plays to hate and they were both in the first quarter. What a great game! Consistency is going to be the key for the 2018 Carolina Panthers. They can look absolutely awesome at times like they did this week against the Ravens and in last week’s second half against the Philadelphia Eagles. They can also look like a dumpster fire like they did against the New York GIants and against Washington. But at 5-2, the Panthers are rolling right now.D.J. Moore had the best game of his rookie season with five receptions (on six targets) for 90 yards with an additional 39 rushing yards on two carries. Cam Newton, the reigning NFL Offensive Player of the Week, was incredible yet again going 21-for-29 with 219 yards and two passing touchdowns, plus an additional 52 rushing yards and a score. Defensively, Donte Jackson is a stud in coverage and had a lightning-quick sack on Joe Flacco. Captain Munnerlyn made a nice play undercutting a route for an interception. I’m getting really worried about Dontari Poe, though. He’s made zero impact plays this year and I think I only heard his name called against the Ravens for the boneheaded penalty. On special teams, Michael Palardy pinned the Ravens once at the one yard line and another time at the eight. Graham Gano went 3-for-3, including a 54-yarder Carolina Panthers Hats , to remain perfect on the season. These guys are flat out ballin’!At 5-2 the Panthers control their playoff destiny and with performances like this Carolina could make some serious noise in the postseason.

From Dom Capers to Ron Rivera, Frank Reich to Cam Newton, the old school has been the only school in Charlotte. Part of that school is the teaching that winning the battle over the clock is one of the most important aspects of winning the game. You run the ball to control the clock. You force teams to punt to prevent them from chewing up the clock. Time of possession isn’t just a key part of winning games, it is the most valued statistic.That is the old school. The newer school is applying things like ‘math’ to all of the statistics generated in a given football game to see what actually does correlate with wins. Our very own Jonathan DeLong did some work on this last year. The moral of the story is that the newer school of thought values scoring points to win football games.We’re going to spend some time talking about this subject in the coming week because nobody wants to talk about how the Saints look like a real contender this year (Go Rams!). I’d like you Cheap Customized Carolina Panthers Jerseys , dear reader, to take a moment and gather your best guess as to how the Carolina Panthers performed with regards to their time of possession in 2018. Really think about it and then move on to the next paragraph.The Panthers, who we all remember as having a dismal season featuring a stunning seven game losing streak, dominated the time of possession across the whole season. They possessed the football for 23:14 longer than their opponents. The average time of possession in the NFL is 30:00 (see again: math). That means the Panthers almost played a whole game more than their opponents in 2018.While striking, the sum of the season is hardly the story of each game. By time of possession, the Carolina Panthers would have had a successful season and likely been in the playoffs with a 10-6 record. They would have swept the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Atlanta Falcons, lost to the Philadelphia Eagles, but beaten the Cleveland Browns. They also would have played a close game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, ultimately losing that game 30:35 to 29:25.The relationship between time of possession and winning is not a causal one. It exists, to be sure, but it is incidental. Events that cause wins (scores) typically also require possessing the ball. The more a team scores the more they will both win and possess the ball. Focusing on possession is missing the forest for the leaf on your shoe. We’ll look in deeper detail going forward about how time of possession has compared to wins for previous Panthers seasons and for other, more successful franchises in the NFL. If you think you have a perfect rebuttal to this argument and that time of possession is actually the most important stat in football, please leave a comment or write a fan post to support your opinion. We’ll try to address your ideas as this series continues.
