Fox Not Worried About Recent Defensive Problems

From: Yahoo! Sports

The Panthers have reasons to be concerned about their defense, but coach John Fox claims not to be worried. The Panthers have been giving up points (29 per game) and yards (394.8 per game) at an alarming rate over the past six games and they’ve been victimized by both the run and the pass. But Fox attributes that to the Panthers playing a tough schedule against five teams ranking in the top eight in the league in offense – New Orleans (1st), Denver (2nd), Atlanta (6th), N.Y. Giants (7th) Green Bay (8th) – and another that ranks 14th (Tampa Bay).

“When you come down the stretch with five games to finish the season—at Green Bay, which is no box of chocolates, Monday Night Football against the Tampa Bay Bucs, the No. 2 offense in the NFL in Denver and you’ve got to go to the New York Giants, the defending world champions, and then you’ve got to go on the road and win, which hasn’t been done this season in our (division) and you go 4-1, I ‘m not concerned with much.”

    He’s not worried. This guy is killing me! It’s his JOB to worry and FIX this stuff.
    John Fox has a game plan. He sticks to it even if the other team knows what it is (as the Cards did last Sat.). He doesn’t know what to do when the opponent has “our number”. He sticks to his game plan and the Panthers lose. We need a coach that can adjust/improvise.
    Plus, if the offense would start converting 3rd and 4th down situations and score points, the defense wouldn’t have to work so hard.
