Default Carolina game tonight observations

I couldn't watch the game since I'm out of the Pittsburgh area. I'll have to wait until Saturday 8PM to see it on NFL Network.

Can you guys give your observations?

Who played well...who didn't? Anything interesting besides Lefty getting hurt?

Dwyer had a real nice game, and for the short time Dixon was in he looked good as well.

Butler was absolutely beast tonight as was Sylvester.

All in all it was a pretty good game. Didn't get as many into the EZ as you would have liked to have seen, but they were playing really conservatively for most of the game.

The thing I like about DIxon's TD pass was that he knew he had 6, but he ALSO knew that he had to make his motion smaller with the pressure from the right.

I GUARANTEE you 5 second release Lefty doesn't make that pass in those circumstances.

Thanks. I really like Butler.

I was looking at Dwyer's stats on NFL.com and I said too bad...he had a bad game...16 rushes for 27 yards...while I was doing the math I looked back and it was 17 rushes for 65 yards or so then another 21 yard rush for the 18th. Why were the first 16 so bad?

I saw several times they kept running it when Batch was in there.

We really need o work on Red Zone plays. That was our problem last year.

I guess it's good we held on to Batch eh...lol

The thing I noticed about Dixon last week is he stares down his receiver. That will lead to picks.

Very true. But learning to look off a defender is easier than switching your throwing motion.

Yeah, I know that regular season isn't the time to learn for a team like ours, but, not like we have much of a choice.

Dixon was late on that read. Sanders was sitting there like a hitchhiker saying THROW IT THROW IT!. Leftwiches pass to Sanders was the best ball of the night imo

Our starters on both sides looked like @#$%. And I have no idea what they were doing out there against their scrubs. Once we got the 1st team off and it was scrubs against scrubs, it we stabilized and most of our scrubs were playing like the wanted jobs. But it was scary for a while there though. Lefty goes down and Dixon comes in and throws a 23 yd TD. It was a thing of beauty. Sanders has been making great catches – looks like Holmes when he was “on”. We gotta keep Sylvester – the kid is in on every play. Alonzo Worilds is a mystery to me. The scrub line, with the exception of Hartwig, looks better than the starters.

IMHO, Sanders, Brown, and Redman made it. Sylvester, Butler, and Dwyer need to stick. Any of them is good enough for a roster spot and won't clear waivers. Gibson? Meh. Worilds? Seriously?
