    I think that this year, just as in the past few years, Carolina's defense has been vastly overrated because their players look so imposing in the locker room. Physically, they are impressive. They just don't seem to have the attack mentality that a good defense needs. They are passive and tentative.

    This is nothing personal with Renner, it’s just business. And it makes a lot of sense.

    Completely agree. The defensive scheme seemed to be "stand back and hope they trip on their way to the endzone". Or did we think that they would drop 12 or more passes? Terrible/hard to watch game for me.

    Kind of like Lance Thomas and the recruitment of the cheater Shabazz.

    A through investigation of Dook is due.

    Renner does not look pretty doing it, but he continues to churn out strong numbers. Hard to see Marquise replacing him as a starter this year, but he will have all the opportunity to prove himself in the off-season.

    Back to the D (or lack there of). The staff had an extra week to prepare for GTech and this is what we get??? Yes, it is a new scheme, but what we saw yesterday was terrible.

    Like I said before the fedora experiment hit the field: he is rich rodriguez v.2. His offense will shoot the lights out, but his defense will be god awful and shoot themselves in the foot. 2 years until he's railroaded
