  1. Well I'm glad they called him friend. That was a nice little twitter exchange. We have a friendly little sweetheart running our twitter account.
  2. Is Norwood the worst Gettleman move to date?

    Gettleman didn't do so well when we were in cap hell and he had to go dumpster diving. Once we moved up from Dollar Store free agents to Wal-Mart free agents you saw an improvement and Gettleman was able to shine. It's great when dead money and bad contracts come to an end, it's like an anchor being cut from the team.
  3. Will the Nation view us as #1?

    To the idea that people don't just give you respect, I disagree. The media gives out free unearned respect to certain teams every season. The media also disrespects the Panthers at every possible opportunity until things are so lopsided that they have to say something positive. To illustrate the respect/disrespect disparity you don't even have to go back 1 week. The Dallas Cowboys were talked up and picked to beat our Panthers. The Cowboys had played like ass for most of the season, and were led by a washed up ailing QB with a bad back, recently snapped collar bone, and an old noodle arm. So noodle arm (what little velocity he had in his prime is long gone, see Drew Brees) and the Cowgirls were picked to beat a Panthers team that is RED HOT on fire right now, and with a QB in his prime. Cam throws rockets all over the field, and our defense is top 3 at worst. They pissed on us. Look at the pre-season. Most of the media had our team finishing 3rd place in the NFCS. Third place. Third. Saints, Falcons, Panthers, Bucs. Never mind that we obliterated them the previous winter. That Brees' arm had turned to mush from old age. That we won the South the last two seasons. Third place. Emory Hunt, The Czar of the Playbook, came on to our forum and told us we were going to lose to the Jaguars. The fuging Jaguars. Of course I exploded when he did that. But that was a popular and trendy pick from the media at the time. He wasn't alone with that pick. One member of the media disrespected our team so badly that management at stepped in and took the video down, and made them make a new one that was respectful. Not kidding. They begrudgingly said a few positive things in the second video after they called our entire franchise lousy in the original video. Respect is not earned for certain teams. Certain big market teams receive free respect for being even remotely decent, or sometimes even when they are well below .500. The Panthers have to fight tooth and nail and dominate for even a tiny backhanded compliment. When we're undefeated, we're the worst undefeated team. Even though Cinci is a weak paper tiger, they still receive way more respect. Even when they lost members of the media were blowing Dalton by saying that he had pinpoint accuracy compared to Cam, and that Cinci was better. fug that noise. JNO, TD, Ealy, and other Panther players have directly said on camera that they are sick and tired of being disrespected by the media. I'm sick of it too. That's part of the reason I want the SB win so badly. I have this idea that somehow the media will back off with the disrespect if we win it all.
  4. Then the new narrative will be that it's a down year for the NFL. The media will always figure out an angle for dumping on our team.
  5. David Newton: Rivera will not rest starters

    Rivera is under no obligation to reveal our future strategies and plans. Hence HE IS NOT GOING TO DO SO. Ah there got that off my chest. We may or may not rest starters.
  6. Jimmy Graham torn patellar tendon

    Now I don't have to worry about hearing "gee whiz he didn't do anything all season and now he's killing us" when we're in the playoffs. Good riddance.
  7. Jimmy Graham torn patellar tendon

    I think we're on a collision course with the Seahawks, so I'm glad they've lost a major weapon.
