I decided to google the word "Reactionary" because it's been used so much on here over the past 3 months or so. Now the only time I'd ever heard the word used it was to describe someone who had unusual political views and was outspoken. Anyway here is what I found:
"Reactionary describes people on the far right politically. Reactionaries occupy a political space past conservative, near where ultra-conservative bumps shoulders with fascist."
"A reactionary is someone reacting (in horror) to what most of the world considers to be progress. No one describes themselves as reactionary––you will hear it more often as a condemnation, as in "I cannot support the reactionary policy of mandatory military service for 18-year-olds."
"A reactionary is a person who holds political views that favor a return to the status quo ante, the previous political state of society, which possessed characteristics (discipline, respect for authority, etc.) that he or she thinks are negatively absent from the contemporary status quo of a society. As an adjective, the word reactionary describes points of view and policies meant to restore the status quo" So someone on this site had been reading political articles, or having political discussions, and decided to use "reactionary" in place of overreacting, or some other word. It's interesting to see how the word has really taken hold here.
It's still very early but it looks like our defense is going to be able to manhandle some teams this season. Cam might have an up and down season, looking great at times, and terrible at others. Our defense throttled the Falcons and Saints at the end of last season. No contest. Our defense should be even better than last season in my opinion. The question is have the Falcons and Saints retooled their offense to compete with our elite defense? We'll have to wait for the answer and that's part of the fun.
TD was the hardest hitter I've ever seen play for the Panthers. In his prime he hit someone so hard one night I thought he was dead. He had to go to the ER. I think it was a special teams play, but it's been a long time. TD would almost murder players. He doesn't hit like that now, but in his prime good lord. Shaq doesn't hit like that, but I love his violent tackles as well.
How would you describe the Pats coverage of Ginn overall in last nights game? How did the Pats DBs do against Ginn? Now compare that to Brown. Any difference? Do you think has Ginn has slowed down over the years? Who runs more and better routes? I'm asking these questions because your answers will reveal why we disagree. I'm interested in your view since you seem to live and breath Panther football, although for some reason you're usually extremely negative.
Last season Brown would use his chest to catch passes whenever possible. Even his deep catches were on plays where he turned around to face the ball and use his chest. Unfortunately we just don't have the WRs to be able to cut Brown imo even with his preseason meltdown.
