    Alright you bunch of whiny ass bitches. It’s time to snap out of your sniveling ass state of pussiness and grow a pair of testicles. The kind of testicles your dad used when he banged your mom and implanted the seed that gave birth to your privileged millennial asses. Boo hoo we lost to the Saints in embarrassing fashion. I for one expected Drew Brees and that drug stealing coach of his to come in and score 30+ points. I also expected that son of a steakhouse owner offensive coordinator of ours to be out coached and he was. Suck it up. Own the loss. Realize that our sh*t stinks sometimes and come back to reality. It is what it is has been replaced with missed opportunities and the only cavalry on the horizon is trumpeted by a drunk ass radio station owner named Marty Hurney. Cram that bit of irony up your groundhog day fantasy and blow it out of your butt. This is where we are. This is the NFL and any given Sunday you can take a giant ham hock up the ass. The key is to be prepared. Grab a box of canned tomatoes like Andy Dufresne in Shawshank Redemption and take that ass pounding like a damn man. In the end Bogs Diamond got his nut and ended up in a wheel chair tossing his bro’s salad through a straw while Andy and Red refurbished and shared a small wooden skiff together in the Yucatan Peninsula. The metaphor of that was lost on me but at the end of the day we are 2-1 and we are traveling north to face a team that Cam Newton and Ron Rivera have never lost to. Yes the Patriots have 5 Super Bowls and we have none but who’s counting? Yes they are coached by a man that many feel is the GOAT. I mean the son of a bitch wore a sweatshirt with the neck and sleeves cut off over a god damned button down at his presser today. If that is not some damn boss sh*t I don’t know what is. But with all that in mind, there is a chink in his armor. The dude drives a Subaru Outback mini-station wagon to work every day. Driving a 2004 Subaru mini-wagon to work is a sign of a guy that fears for his safety. Everyone knows that Subaru’s are a safe damn vehicle. Bill is scared. He is scared of sliding off the road and crashing into a river. A river that might have a gambling boat. That boat has a windshield that transitions from clear to tinted when it goes from overcast to sunny conditions. That boat, let’s call it a River Boat, haunts Bill in his dreams because Bill has never beaten the river boat. He knows that Kuechly broke up that pass to Gronk cleanly. He knows in his heart of hearts that if his Subaru were to slide of off a bridge and collide with the river boat the Subaru would explode and burst into a ball of flames then sink to the bottom of the river where he would succumb to the Giardia parasite (google that poo) and sh*t his brains out for the next month. It’s simple; guys that want to win football games don’t drive a 2004 Subaru Outback Coup. This is a fact, all of their victories and Super Bowl titles are meaningless. This Sunday our Panthers are making a little visit to Gillette Stadium in the great state of New England (shout out to the bandwagon Patriot fan in Clover, SC that thinks New England is a US State). For a few days the state of New England will be infused with a little class. For a few days, the smooth sounds of yacht rock jams will echo through the New England hills and dales as the Roaring Riot settles into enemy territory. Pats fans driving around Foxboro in their rusted 1978 AMC Pacers trying to finger bang their ski-bib wearing Camaro hair girlfriends won’t know what to think as we teach those Dunkin Donuts eating clowns what a real biscuit is. Star and KK are fixing to eat this Sunday. It will not matter who is playing in our secondary because our front 7 are going to rebound. I think we pressure Tom early and often and we get two turnovers. Unlikely? F*ck that. In a major turn of events, Mike Shula somehow pulls his head out of his ass and Cam Newton finally shows that threat to use his legs enough to keep the Pats guessing. CMAC and Samuel both get their first TDs and Cam scores a rushing TD. For a brief moment Panther fans are fired up again and the national media calls our victory a fluke. Panthers win. Falcons lose. Eat my ass Pats. Panthers 27 Patriots 23

    The worst 4-1 team in the NFL! Stick that sh*t up your ass and let it sink in like a 300 lb Detroit hooker sinks into a memory foam mattress. We flew up to Detroit, battled the refs and a hostile crowd, pounded that Cooter and walked out of the stadium with a win. I also got flipped off by a table full of Michigan State fans at the bar in Detroit. All in all, a great weekend to be a Panther fan. Now it’s time to bag that W and focus on our next opponent during this short week. Since this is a short week and these assholes do not deserve a minute of my valuable time and honestly, not a damn thing has changed in Phily since 2015, I am going to polish an old turd and recycle some content. As in 2015, we are ushering in a gaggle of disgusting human feces from a forgotten crap hole sandwiched between DC and NYC. Like an orange hemorrhoid protruding from the bleached asshole of Donald Trump, Phily and Phily fans are hard on the eyes and a pain in the ass. The Philadelphia Eagles and the biggest bunch of assholes this side of Kim Jong-un are coming to BofA stadium on Thursday night. A more delusional fan base you will not meet. The Philadelphia Eagles have been around since 1933. That’s 84 freaking years. In that timespan their NFC East rivals have won somewhere in the neighborhood of 14 Super Bowls and the Eagles have won zero. Our Panthers have been around for 20+ years and it kills me to not have a ring. I fired off a tweet today about their lack of rings because that’s all us fans of ringless franchises can do and they come back with garbage about the NFL Championships they won in the 50’s when the NFL was like a Mormon church softball league. Can you blame these Eagles losers for being such miserable wastes of oxygen? These people are so pathetic that the city had to erect a statue of a fictitious boxer named Rocky just to boost the morale of these unemployed loud mouth bastards. Philadelphian’s actually believe Rocky was a real life boxing champion. They cannot separate reality from the movie screen. I guess when you have to stumble home every night after pounding 17 Stroh’s Lights at the neighborhood bar to women that need a helping hand just to wipe their own fat asses, Eagles fans have to clamp on to whatever small victories they can get. So while Rocky beating Clubber Lang was awesome, it carries as much weight as the Eagles trophy case. Somehow Philadelphians have found our region and migrated here in the thousands. Like the Dust Bowl era Sooners, these people packed up their diabetic compression socks and loaded up their shitty, rusted out 1978 Buick LeSabre’s and hit I-95 south. It would have been nice if they kept driving south past NC/SC and ended up in the Straits of Florida, but no, as our luck would have it they ended up here. Joy to the fricking world. The most miserable group of white trash this country can produce has set up shop in our backyard. Every time you bump into an Eagles fan you have to listen to them bitch about Donavan McNabb and how their latest sebaceous cyst (Google that poo) got blood and puss all over their CPAP mask. Then as Carolinians we are forced to dodge these morbidly obese people rolling around our city on electric scooters in those horrible sh*t green jerseys. So anytime you see a fat ass Eagle fan on a scooter at Walmart, feel free to hitch a ride because you and I are footing the bill with our tax dollars. The only local businesses that have prospered from this mass invasion of Philadelphians are Gastroenterologists and stores that sell denim products with elastic seams. These clowns claim that Philadelphia is the cheese steak capital of the world? Give me a break. I’ve been there. I’ve been to Pat’s and Geno’s and Tony Luke’s and Delassandro’s and they are all ass. Cheap beef served on dry bread with fake cheese whiz and onions. Only somebody from Phily would brag about that garbage. You want the authentic Phiy cheese steak experience? Go to the gas station, buy a Hot Pocket and a Miller Lite, call the cashier some kind of racist nickname, and punch the guy behind you in line in the face for standing to close to you. Boom, authentic Phily experience. If you want to make it really authentic, take a sh*t on your front porch and yell for your wife to come clean it up before you go inside and then cap it all off with a drunk shadow boxing session telling her how you could of beaten up Drago just like Rocky did in Rocky IV. Eagles fans are walking around thumping their chests about being 4-1. I think they started last year 5-0. Carson Wentz is now best QB in the league. F**Kin A I really cannot stand these guys. Like in 2015, they think this game will be a breeze. They think Cam is a running back. You’ve heard the arguments. When the ball is kicked off in BofA Thursday night the atmosphere should be electric like it was in 2015. The stands will be full of Eagles fans in the NFL’s ugliest jerseys because none of those assholes want to live up there anymore and we have to deal with the fallout of a country with an open Interstate system that seems to only head from the northeast to Charlotte. Ah, but like in 2015 Panther fans are going to make our joint tough for those clowns to play in. Like in 2015, Eagles fans are thumping their chests over wins against some pretty bad teams. Good for them, they beat who they were supposed to beat. Even with our injuries, we are the most well-rounded team they have faced. It just sucks that this game is on Thursday and not Sunday. I think our defense is going to come out with something to prove after subpar Q4 performances against NE and Detroit. Our interior o-line and our line as a whole is playing good football and Cam Newton is starting to look healthier week by week. Cam will beat the Eagles pressure and J Stew will have a breakout game and run the ball against that stout defense. Not one national outlet has picked us to win the last two weeks. The NFCE ass kissing has already started as Sal Paolantonio literally rode in Doug Peterson’s car to the game on Sunday. How many used wet wipes were in that passenger seat? In the end it’s going to be a great game and the good guys will prevail as Eagles fans leave our stadium with another fat L. Panthers 31 Eagles 24

    I told you assholes we were going to win. Do you hear that? Do you hear that high pitched squeal from Foxboro? That is the sound of whining coming from a 5 time Super Bowl champion that is 0-2 against Cam Newton lead football teams. Boo f*cking hoo the refs. Boo f*cking hoo the sky was not cloudy enough. Boo f*cking hoo our defense sucks. Well boo f*cking hoo the Pats defense sucking didn’t seem to impact a god damned 9 point line in Vegas before the game but now the excuse seeking nancies are grasping for every straw to explain the L. Well, I hope the Pats and Pats fans choke on that L and I hope they know that Tom Brady is still Cam Newton’s bitch. Now pull up your pants, quit feeling sorry for yourselves, act like you’ve won five SB rings, and beat the Bucs on Thursday night. Meanwhile, bye Tom. We are moving on to the 8th Sh*thole of the World, Detroit. When I think of Detroit I think of denim tuxedos, Windsor Ballets, Kid Rock and genital warts. A city that was once the epicenter of Motown and airport strip bars featuring pregnant strippers that could pick up a stack of quarters off the stage using only their labia is now hanging its hopes and dreams on a white trash musical hack as a potential senate candidate for the state of Michigan. Kid friggin Rock has a chance at a senate seat in Washington DC thanks to Michigan. Think about that for a minute. They are pinning their hopes and dreams on a guy who’s lyrical talent is no better than this f*ckin internet post. The people of Detroit are going to vote for a guy because he thinks every man, woman and child should own an Iroc Z with T-tops and a trailer hitch. I once stopped at a Walmart just outside of Detroit in between sales calls to take a sh*t and buy some Sweetarts Rope and a stick of Gold Bond anti-chaffing ointment. I navigated my way through a parking lot full of pot holes that must of contained 600 rusted ass Pontiac Aztec’s. It was a bizarre scene, almost like something from an Anthony Burgess novel. After shopping for my male hygiene product I walked to the checkout and couldn’t help but notice that every person in that store walked with a limp while mumbling incoherent rants under their breath. The women all seemed to have the same dirty pink tight sweat pants and had labial minora hypertrophy (google that poo) induced moose knuckle that would have gagged Ron Jeremy. I was so unconcerned about impressing anybody in that store that I put the anti-chaffing ointment on my balls while in the check out line. Other than that it’s a great town if you enjoy singing karaoke with drunk cougars looking for free cheddar bay biscuits at the Red Lobster next to the Wayne County International Airport. Meanwhile our Panthers are 3-1 and are headed in to face a Lions team that is 3-1 and should be 4-0 if not for a stupid 10 second run off rule that the NFL has in place. I don’t know too much about the Lions. I think their head coach is a god damned wax figure and the offensive coordinator, Jim Bob Cooter, has the best damn name in sports. No doubt during the summer months the Cooter supplements his income working a vendor tent at country concerts handing out free logs of chewing tobacco to teens while getting them to sign up for Skoal Rewards. The Lions look like a good squad with a solid defense and a pretty good offense. Looks like they could be the best all around team we’ve faced this season. But alas, I’m not a pussy and I don’t give a damn. We also have a good team that is 3-1 and we haven’t played a good game yet. Do you want to know a secret? Don’t tell anyone but it looks like Cam is getting his health back. Yes Matt Kalil sucks but we are going to overcome that this Sunday. Our defense, even with Coleman out, is going to force Stafford to make two critical mistakes. Detroit will try to run on us but our d-line gets their poo together and owns the trenches. Bradberry picks off Stafford and Shag creates a fumble getting us the ball back for a go ahead score. Cam keeps it rolling. KB, Funchess, Stew, and CMAC all get a TD. The Panthers walk out of Ford Field at 4-1. Panthers 31 Lions 27

    That was..... just ugh. lol. Not at all the way I thought it was going to go down. I figured the final score would be close, but because the game was close. Carolina had complete control from start to finish. In a strange flashback to 2016, Detroit once again forgot that TE was in fact, an NFL position that exists, and requires attention. We had concerns that the o-line would have a bad day, and in hindsight, I would have welcomed a mere "bad" day. Stafford did what he could, but good grief. They almost killed him out there. Trying to stay positive. I guess the run defense was good, and Davis had a good day. Stafford did some good things at the end, but had no time to think. You guys have a really good team, should have a hell of a season. Been a fun week chatting with you guys. Good luck going forward.

    There has been plenty of discussion on here with exactly zero minds changed. You are still free to discuss the protest as much as you like in The Tinderbox. Have at it. If there is another major development regarding the protests we will consider posting it here. Until then, this forum is for talk about the upcoming game against the Patriots.

    Taking a closer look at three touchdowns against the Patriots. All of them were made much easier by the extra attention Christian McCaffrey received from the Patriots. Clearly, the Patriots wanted to take CMC out of the game. To his credit, Mike Shula apparently was counting on that and ready. It seems Belichick underestimated Shula. 1. Touchdown screen to Fozzy Whitaker. Literally the entire Patriots defense followed McCaffrey right. Not only was Fozzy able to score the touchdown, look at how wide open Ed Dickson is here. The Patriots completely disregarded the left side of the field. If the play call was not a screen to Fozzy, Dickson would have had an even easier touchdown. He could have walked in. 2. Cam Newton read option. Watch 53 as he takes himself completely out of the play, his eyes stuck on Christian McCaffrey the entire time. Without that, Cam would not have had a clear lane to the end zone. Bonus: See Trai Turner use one LB as a bowling ball and the other as a pin. 3. Play action to Funchess Patriots stacking the box with 32 here, selling out for the run here and staying on McCaffrey. Basically daring Cam Newton to throw it. It seems the Patriots were expecting the Cam Newton of last week, and not the one that spent a week in practice. The good news? It worked. The Carolina Panthers successfully used the Patriots' own game plan against them. Kudos. The bad news? That won't work again now that Detroit has seen this film. Mike Shula will need to come up with a new game plan against the solid Lions defense.

    Before we turn our full attention over to the Eagles, let's take a look back on some great plays from Sunday in gif form. Cam finds Ed Dickson downfield and he almost rumbles his way into the endzone Luke rallies the troops on the sideline after a poor first showing Ed Dickson almost scores on a well designed bootleg rollout J-Stew refuses to go down when he actually gets room to run Christian McCaffrey gets his first NFL touchdown on a quadruple option Cam throws a pass slightly behind McCaffrey, but he makes a sick one handed grab Cam finds Devin Funchess in the back of the endzone after the play breaks down Another view of the Cam to Funchess touchdown Stafford fumbles and the refs wait until all the Lions get in the pile before blowing the whistle Shaq Thompson puts an exclamation point on the end of the 1st half KK Short forces Stafford to fumble and Thomas Davis recovers it Cam throws a perfect touchdown pass to Kelvin Benjamin on a dime Star bursts through and takes out two Lions in the process Julius Peppers the ageless wonder stuffs a 4th down run in the backfield Shaq Thompson comes off the edge untouched and sacks Stafford Captain Munnerlyn sacks Stafford after Star almost gets him down Cam to Kelvin Benjamin on a clutch 3rd down play to seal the victory

    Called in to Late Hits on my way home tonight. I love Gil. I wanted to know his thoughts on the Panther offense. He said these things... Bills are a lot better than most people think. McDermott's knowledge of our offense a big factor last week. Need to get more out of CMC. Benjamin has improved...Funchess has to keep improving. Of course tough to replace Greg. At the end said need to see better play "out of my friend" (Cam) I did not ask but he said that he believes the Panthers are a playoff team this year. Alex Marvez agrees.

    Hey there, how are you? If you haven't heard, the Panthers laid an egg today. If you are a new Panthers fan, they do it every single year. Even their Superbowl year in Atlanta. So, things are not great. Far from it. However, we are 2-1 in a long NFL season and it is very possible the Panthers can improve and become a playoff caliber team. Here on the Huddle we take 24 hours to lick our wounds. Come Tuesday, we will be focused on defeating New England. As crazy as that sounds right now, it could very well happen. Now here is a topcat picture to help make you feel better. Love, Mgmnt

    It's because, just like so many of our losses under this staff, it was winnable. VERY winnable. And it feels like we lost to a lesser team - because we did. The difference between our team and theirs is that we were outcoached, first and foremost. I take nothing away from Philly. They are a good, quality, most likely division-winning playoff team. But, we are more talented where it matters... difference is, we were outcoached, and thus outexecuted. They put their players in positions to succeed, whereas our staff repeatedly put ours in positions to fail, and it is beyond frustrating.

    Listen up you bunch of mountain folk window lickers! (or city slickers according Igor, elohfuggingel by the way). It's Saints vs. Panthers week, which means it's hate week. So I'll start this off with a big fug you, your family, your friends, and your team. The Saints are going in dry this week fellas, so it's time to do your best Mercedes Benz Stadium impression and open up that sphincter. I'm fairly certain that, at this point, the Saints defense won't be able to slow down any NFL offense and would struggle with at least 37 NCAA offenses. The Saints defense gives up HOF worthy numbers every week. Seriously. They could give the MVP to the combined numbers of the QBs the Saints play. It's unreal. It's a fugging unexplainable phenomenon. But that's ok, at least we have a top 5 offe...wait, what's that? We keep trading away offensive players to help a defense that continues to rank 32nd? So now the offense sucks too? Whoda fugging thunk it? We've got Great Value Jimmy Graham starting at TE and Clover Valley (that's Dollar Generals generic brand. Shoutout to my broke people in the house. Bigcat just ignore this part) Brandin Cooks playing receiver. On top of that both tackles are hurt so Drew is getting pummeled worse than the only blonde chick at a college football party. Adrian Peterson looks every bit of 75. But hey! Our fugging punter can bang the poo out of the ball. So we've got that going for us. Prepare to face long fields, with which you'll drive down with ease, all game long! So now is the part where I predict a 45-10 Panthers win. But like I said, fug you and everyone you know. 62-3 Saints.

    Blame Shula all you want but he takes his marching orders from Ron. Rivera doesn't have a killer mentality, it nearly cost us today and it costed Atlanta the Superbowl. You can't just shut things down mid way through the 3rd, he gassed his defense. This was a run away game and he folded. Did the same against NE last week. Grow a set Ron and finish a game

    So @Panthro suggested that a chicken wing be added as a new pie option. Seems like an appropriate evolution of the pie options (something around here has to evolve because it sure isn't the offense). Anyways, @Jeremy Igo said he would make it so if a thread is made and the idea gets 50 positive reactions. Still not sure if cargos are positive but vote away Huddle. I for one am for it (not sure if I can pie myself...wait...that came out wrong. I mean...oh never mind.) pie or poo away

    As we all know, the Panthers won against arguably one of the hottest teams in the NFL. The Stafford-led Lions were a favorite to win, with the Panthers having no shot. Per the usual, we proved every analyst wrong and shut down the Lions quite well. So, I thought I'd do a quick hits on a few things I liked. 1. Someone Abducted Matt Kalil And Replaced Him With An NFL-Caliber Tackle Put out an amber alert. Sound the alarm. Hide yo' kids. Matt Kalil's been good. Now, at first glance, one would think he faced some scrub or rookie. After all, this IS the Matt Kalil we're talking about - the source of Minnesota's woes and agony. No way he could have turned it around against someone good. But alas, he didn't face any scrub at all. In fact, he's arguably one of the better pass rushers in the NFL. Matt Kalil shut down Ziggy Ansah, who had 4.0 sacks coming into the game - only .5 behind Peppers at the time. I don't mean just shutting down his sack record. I mean completely and totally shut down. Sure, he did have a few bone-headed penalties he needed to fix up. However, what this shows is Matt Kalil is taking the next step in understanding this offense. Prior to these last two weeks, he looked lost and absolutely out-of-sync with the rest of the o-line. Now, he seems to be getting a better understanding. Will there likely be a few more blips down the road? Most definitely. I'm not completely sold myself. But boy, this new Matt Kalil sure looks good. 2. Speaking Of Abductions, Ed Dickson Has Been Replaced With Greg Olsen Okay. How many of you actually thought Ed Dickson would eclipse 150 yards? 100? Not even 50? Yeah, we get the point. If you held me by gunpoint and told me to name a number for Ed Dickson, I'd probably say 25. I'd probably talk about how Curtis Samuel would break out (which didn't happen) or how Funchess would be amazing (did happen), but the last guy on my mind would be Dickson. Nowhere in my somewhat sane mind would I have conceived the idea that Ed Dickson would end up breaking a historical record by being only the second TE to finish with 175 yards on 5 or less receptions. I mean man, Shula called a good game. No doubt about that. But holy cow this right here isn't all Shula. This is pure talent dragging the defense down the field like the huge mofo he is. I mean it's like non-injured Greg Olsen lept in a time machine, had some Ed-Dickson morph suit on, and completely embarrassed the Lions at home. Whatever the case, Ed Dickson is proving "the answer's on the roster." What this reveals is how Shula likes using #2 TEs as pure blockers, and how Ed Dickson could be a legitimate TE when called upon. He's proving us all wrong. Way to go, Ed. The third leg we all need when Greg's second leg ain't working. (Stay tuned this week for a deeper look on Ed Dickson's other wide-open catch. Hint: We used that play before - like just the week before) 3. And Um, Luke Kuechly Was Abducted. And Replaced. And Abducted Again. Okay, as most of you know, most around here call me a homer. So here's a bit of negativity to help build the narrative I'm not a homer and in fact very objective in everything I do. Hot take: Luke Kuechly was not good. Don't try and kid yourself. Yes I know, he's basically the best middle linebacker to ever even sniff a football or walk on land. Yes, I know your wives would dump you in an instant if Luke ever gave the word. Yes, I know he's quite the sexy man. But even so, Luke Kuechly is still human. He's prone to have good days and bad days. It's just those bad days are very rare. This is one of those bad days. Luke Kuechly had himself some trouble. Sure, Theo Riddick is arguably one of the best pass-catching RBs in the NFL. However, he just absolutely does Luke Kuechly dirty all game. Missed tackles left and right. Arguably may have been one of his worst games to date. Sure, he made some amazing Luke plays here and there. Those are expected, as he is the GOAT. However, he was off more often than on. (Mini Rant - Meanwhile, the coaching staff seriously needs to stop treating Shaq Thompson like a DB. He's not - he's a LB who doesn't deserve the cruel treatment of guarding WRs.) (Like seriously, stop. We have Captain Munnerlyn for a reason, and there's an even better reason our nickel defense is so good. Stop with this torture.) Anyhow, expect Luke Kuechly to come back with double digit sacks and play for comeback player of the year. Or defensive player of the year. Or basically be the best MLB ever like he usually is. 4. Ok srsly pls stop prevent k ty - signed every Panthers fan ever. Yep. I'm going two for two with negativity. Try calling me a homer now. Oh, how I wish Rivera would go back to the Cardinals playoff game of 2015 and pull up his quote where he said he'd "keep the gas on all game." That strategy worked to punch in our ticket to Superbowl 50 with a 49-15 score. Sadly, we don't like doing that nowadays and go back to prevent mode. It was glorious. The Panthers led the Lions by 17 points by the 4th quarter. It seemed like we might've finished the game with a shut out. Of course, there were those pesky "pessimistic" fans nearby that existed solely to bring reason and logic to our blind homerism and optimism. Those pesky fans tried to warn us this is the Panthers we're talking about. Prevent defense and 4th quarter comebacks from the opposing team is always the norm. But of course we didn't listen. They were right. Panthers went back to prevent and nearly blew the game. If it weren't for CaMVP doing what he does best - save our coaches asses - we would've lost and been ridiculed around the NFL as trash yet again. Yeah, I know about every other team goes into prevent too. But I mean I've been a Panther fan long enough to know prevent defense = cardiac attack. We never seem to be able to pitch shut-outs. So, Rivera, Wilks, or anyone. NO. MORE. PREVENT. D. k ty ily 2. 5. And Finally, Cam Newton - Back In MVP Form Cam Newton said in his presser he's finally feeling more strength in his arm. No longer does his arm feel plagued by the induced-agony our coaching staff's idiocy succumbed him to. So, let's take a look at what he did against the Lions to verify said arm's health. Oh heck yes his arm's back. Cam Newton played lights out, notching a near perfect passer rating while throwing for three touchdowns and 355 yards. He essentially orchestrated a better two game stretch than his first two games his rookie year, AND landing himself with Brady as the only two with two 130+ passer rating games in a row. Gee, who knew giving Cam protection & a healthy arm would do wonders for this offense. Basically - as predicted - Cam having better weapons would indeed help his completion percentage. At the beginning of summer, I predicted Cam would have his best completion percentage yet this year. At the end, I wrote a whole article on that very subject. (Shameless plug - Read it here. I promise it's worth it: http://www.carolinahuddle.com/2017/09/03/carolina-panthers-cam-newton-7/) So, should we expect this trend to continue? You bet Ed Dickson's mom it will. Coming from a highly-objective poster on this board, you know when I say something's good, it's good. Cam is back baby, and so are the Panthers.

    What a phenomenal decision to play Cam in week 17 last season and wait til late March for the surgery.

    How can you start your post by saying "we weren't prepared" and then not blame Rivera and shula?

    http://www.espn.com/blog/carolina-panthers/post/_/id/27582/panthers-address-concern-over-blowing-fourth-quarter-leads “Probably the biggest thing was guys trying to do more than they needed to,” Rivera said. “We tried a little too much to keep it in front of us instead of being aggressive like we had been for three quarters. “I thought we were just trying to keep it in front of us at that point, and it cost us.” Is he serious? You're the head coach. I doubt the players would decide to play soft if someone isn't instructing them to. Be accountable Ron!

    My wife was recently nominated to become teacher of the year for all Schools in the Carolinas by one of her student's parents. The way it works is they have 10 nominees every week, then those nominees are voted on and the winner of the week gets invited to the December 10th game against the Vikings where they will name the teacher of the year. It's an honor to even be nominated and she is over the moon excited. I told her I'd do my best to help her out too, which is why I'm reaching out to you beautiful people to help her out. If you would be so kind, please click here and vote for Samantha Rigby. Voting starts today and ends the 27th. If you don't like voting without context please know that she's seriously an amazing teacher, she was born to do it. I've never met anyone else that is as great with kids as she is and her only hobbies include teaching, and learning about teaching which is why she went back to school to get her master's so she can be a better teacher. She eats and breathes teaching like I eat and breath Panther's football, which is why this entire thing is so serendipitous. If you don't really care about the children, then vote for her so I can go to a Panthers game this season. Last time I went to a game in an odd year we beat the Eagles and then went on to the Super Bowl, so, you know, do it so the Panthers will go to the Super Bowl. It's science. If you don't like me and don't want to help me out... well... dang. Do it for the kids? I dunno, I don't know how to change your mind. I'm sorry you hate me. Pictures of our child in Panther gear to boost interest/increase the likelihood that you vote for my wife because the child is cute can be found below: Pie for all who vote. Also it turns out you can vote more than once, so if you get bored and are feeling generous, please feel free to vote a few times, we really appreciate it. Please and thank you. **EDIT** Bumped for the last day. Please and thank you for all the support.
