his players put an ugly loss to the Redskins behind them before packing their bags and heading to Philadelphia to face the defending champion Eagles."Learn and grow from it and move on Custom Donte Jackson Jersey ," Rivera said matter-of-factly on Monday.The Panthers seemed to have all of the momentum on their side entering the game at Washington.Not only were the Panthers coming off a dramatic win against the Giants on a 63-yard field goal, but they were also getting tight end Greg Olsen back from a broken foot and linebacker Thomas Davis from a four-game suspension. Meanwhile, the Redskins had just been exposed in an embarrassing 43-19 defeat to the Saints the week before, a game in which cornerback Josh Norman was benched at halftime.Instead of carrying that momentum over, the Panthers (3-2) turned the ball three times in a lackluster 23-17 loss to the Redskins, leaving them one game behind the Saints in the NFC South."When you look at games like this, losing is not going to define us," Rivera said. "How we handle it next week, that's what is going to define us. If we take advantage of the opportunity to learn and grow from it, we have a chance to take a step forward. If we don't, we will get beat again."The loss to the Redskins is a microcosm of what is happening around the league this season.One week a team looks awful; the next week it looks like world beaters."The thing that is happening is you see more parity," Rivera said. "You look around at teams that didn't start very well and all of sudden they're playing well. Look at what Dallas did. They played a very talented Jacksonville team on Sunday and scored 40 (points). That is a sign of what is happening. ... It's all over the place and each week it will be something different."For the Panthers, the loss further exposed some lingering problems that have been overshadowed by wins.Most notably, the team has struggled defending the run.Carolina's defense allowed 33-year-old Adrian Peterson to run for 97 yards on 17 carries and continued to struggle getting off the field on third down. The Panthers offense, as it has been prone to do all year, had lengthy lulls in production Donte Jackson Jersey Discount , and the three turnovers were critical.Olsen said the Panthers have been inconsistent this season."When you are 3-1 everyone thinks everyone thinks everything is great, but the reality is it's not," Olsen said. "And that game is a microcosm of that. There was a lot of bad, but also a lot of good. It's just really hard to overcome all of the bad" turnovers.Quarterback Cam Newton called the loss a tough pill to swallow, but is eager to play the Eagles."When you put so much energy, time, effort into something and you don't get the turnout that you want. ...," Newton said. "But at the end of the day, no one is going to feel sorry for you. We don't expect anyone to feel sorry for us. We just got to get right for next week."Rivera added that he's not lost faith in rookie wide receiver D.J. Moore, the team's first-round draft pick who fumbled twice which led to 10 Redskins points."D.J. is going to be a part of what we do for a long time, as is Curtis Samuel, as is pretty much anybody on this football team," Rivera said. "If we believe in them, we're going to keep putting them out there. That's the only way these guys are going to learn and develop into the players we believe they can be. We will stick with them." Should the Panthers go after an offensive tackle in the first round, and should that tackle be Greg Little?"WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Keep Sounding PodcastPanthers 2019 NFL DraftCSR Film RoomCarolina Panthers Film RoomPanthers 2019 NFL DraftFilm room scouting report on Ole Miss OT Greg LittleNew,65commentsShould the Panthers go after an offensive tackle in the first round Donte Jackson Jersey Super Bowl , and should that tackle be Greg Little?EDTShareTweetShareShareFilm room scouting report on Ole Miss OT Greg LittleNelson Chenault-USA TODAY SportsGreg Little played for powerhouse program Allen High in Allen, Texas. As a recruit, Little was highly regarded. He was rated as a five-star prospect and the No. 1 offensive tackle according to all the major recruiting services. With Laremy Tunsil off to the NFL, Little stepped into a starting role immediately. He played in every game as a freshman and started five at left tackle. Little was named to the All-SEC team during his final year in Oxford, Miss. Little’s athletic testing was below average at the Combine. He posted a -0.5 sigma, which is in the 30.1st percentile according to SPARQ. Film reviewLittle has the potential to be an elite pass protector once he enters the NFL. He has the ideal size and length to be a mainstay on the left side. The high level traits Little possesses are the grip strength to control defensive ends, the knee bend to anchor, and the intelligence to pick up on blitzes or stunts. Little keeps a wide base, but it’s what he does upon contact that is impressive. He drops his hips, but he’s also able to place his hands in an advantageous spot to prevent the edge rusher from gaining any ground.Little is able to control the edge rusher on this rep with his outstanding grip strength. This is where his length benefits him. He locks out his hands at the snap, which allows him to place his hands on the chest plate. Little doesn’t allow contact to phase him. He has a smooth kick slide, keeps his feet underneath his frame, but then drops his hips to establish leverage. Defenders did not have much success beating Little with power all season. The edge defender is able to establish his inside hand on Little’s chest, but ultimately it goes nowhere. Little keeps a wide base to again establish his low pad level. With the outside hand on the edge rusher’s chest, Little prevents any further penetration by combating the long arm with his opposite hand. Little has an effective kick slide. He stays low in his stance, but due to his wide frame he gains plenty of depth on the arc to prevent any pressures. Little doesn’t wait to react to the edge rusher thanks to his length. The edge rusher looks as if he’s going to be executing a speed rush Donte Jackson Jersey For Sale , but Little initiates the contact to establish his control. Little, again, faces a long arm rush by the edge rusher. As he snaps into his kick slide, he shows how advanced his hand usage is to keep one hand high and the other low. While Little’s length is an asset, his hand placement is still inconsistent. He doesn’t land his punch within the chest of the edge rusher, which prevents Little from using his grip strength to control. Former Bengals and Cowboys offensive line coach Paul Alexander mentioned in his scouting report that Little moved his post foot too soon, which gave the edge rusher an advantage. Alexander goes on to mention that this is a correctable area as he transitions to the pros.Little is an inconsistent run blocker. He doesn’t show the same functional strength or explosive burst to drive off the snap. His pad level on this snap isn’t optimal, which causes him to lose his base.Ole Miss ran a version of the air raid last season, so it’s not surprising Little isn’t a refined run blocker. Little’s EPA when Ole Miss ran to his gap was -3.5, which is less than ideal. However, as I said in my scouting report on Washington State offensive tackle Andre Dillard, run blocking isn’t a prerequisite in the modern NFL or for the Panthers. Christian McCaffrey created plenty of yards on his own and Norv Turner did an admirable job of scheming up run concepts despite the issues at left tackle in 2018. Fit with CarolinaLittle is an outstanding pass protector. According to Sports Info Solutions, he only allowed four blown blocks in pass protection in 2018. The left tackle situation has been a massive black hole for Carolina since Jordan Gross retired in 2014. The Panthers re-signed Daryl Williamswho has made his career on the right side. Taylor Moton hasn’t played left tackle in his entire football career outside of Week 1 in 2018. The Panthers need a natural left tackle and Little is exactly that. I don’t know how the Panthers will shuffle the positions between Moton and Williams, but Little can step in on Day 1 and improve the entire unit as a pass protector. He should be in consideration as early as their first round pick.
