    Redzone problems still evident but getting better?

    They are getting better so give them some credit but multiple times tonight you had to scratch your head. Ben had Heath wide open in the endzone and I believe it was Ward too. Ben was way too hot on those throws and late as well. The line got bogged down with letting pressure through stuffing the run on multiple occasions. They need to fix this, it's been a problem all year long. You get into the playoffs and keep settling for FG's it's going to come back to haunt you.

    Fortunately Carolina's offense is not very good and our defense is very good so the times we had to settle for FG's were not game changing situations tonight.

    Poor execution yet again in the red zone at times tonight.....Plus the run blocking was spotty at the 1 yard line again on one series and Ben had to dive in with a broken nose to score the TD.....Don't know if I want doing that much with an injured nose again.......BA is dolt but you can't deny the execution is poor yet again......

    I don't think you can really say anything got better after this game. The Panthers are worse than...well, they're just really bad.

    That talk that BA and Ben had about being more patient in the endzone wasn't so evident tonight. They seemed to go back to their old ways of firing it in from the 20 on several occasions.

    First & 10 from the 19 ( I think )...three passes, guess where, yep you're right..end-zone. It's like actually massaging your game plan to react to what the defense does during the game, it's a lot easier to talk about it afterward than it is to actually do it during the game.

    Old dogs-new tricks, BA-smart play calling...same same !
    You're never too old to learn something stupid.

    Some of the more recent replies are dead-on. First, the execution inside the 20 has been for the most part, **** poor all season. Secondly, while the use of Miller is a great point, I'd also add that the personnel packages BA has used in the red zone have been extremely questionable. Why go to MM in the RZ if it isn't 3rd and 12 or something like that? Why NOT use Redman more often? Where is the play-action on 1st and 2nd down? I gotta stop because I'm getting pissed off just thinking about this.

    That's their problem. They're over anxious. Once they get within the 20, they stop the methodical short passes and 5 yard runs that they used to get into the redzone and start throwing it deep into the endzone on every down. It works once and a while, but you can't do that on every drive. Defenses in the NFL are too smart now to allow that.
