    I certainly bleed my Panther blue, and have followed the team so long, that I'm beginning to feel like history as opposed to remembering history. That being said, I follow the Panthers very closely and am truly a Panthers fanatic in the best sense of the word.

    In addition to following the Panthers and the NFL, I also write poems and essays regarding different aspects of race relations in America, and sometimes the world. You can see some of my poetry at blackpoems.net, and perhaps more importantly read my essays on race at racerelations.net. Yes, I know that dealing with racial issues can seem somewhat taboo at times, but my goal is to provide forums where people can at least open up a dialogue and discuss racial issues forthrightly, but respectfully. It is my dream that people will get to a point where, like Dr. martin Luther King expressed, people will be judged by their character and not skin color. Moreover, I have been known to write reviews and opinions on different aspects of the wireless industry, and other issues that affect consumers.

    Lastly, I am a family man who works a penny ante job, enjoys sports and very few TV shows, and plays video games. I am in some ways the quintessential "starving artist", who somewhat revels in being a rebel and covets a Bohemian lifestyle.

  1. I alluded to it in the game thread. Stew has obviously lost a step, but to use the Philly game to say that the man is done is just simplistic. And, not to mention any names, but I thought some of you were overzealous in your criticism (if not simply gratuitous to the point of potshots).
  2. Pie for "dumbfounded." That's the perfect word to characterize how many of us feel about some of these moves.
  3. Isn't that stupid? You have an aged Stewart, or a young and spry CMC, and you use Stew on the sweeps and screens. WTF is really going on? What's happening?
  4. It's so fuging infuriating. Don't get me wrong, I blame Wilks, but I still see Shaq's limitations. I just don't believe he can fill the plan that we had for him when we over-drafted him.
  5. I believe we are better than the Eagles. We gave them the victory. Between the turnovers, running when it's obviously not working, and using Shaq to try and play those slot guys, we just played right into their damned hands. Sometimes you just have to do what makes sense. If you want to throw to your RB, why would you throw to Stew as opposed to CMC? I mean, your running game wasn't working anyway and you weren't fooling anyone, so keep CMC in the game and let him catch. Even if you want to be a rock head, why not put Cam Artis-Payne in to see if he could get a semblance of a run game going? And then on the other side of the ball, you have Shaq just being abused play after play after play. At some point, you have to say that he's not working out back there as a slot corner. Perhaps it'd make better sense to turn him into a box safety with his skill set. And, speaking of the safety position, I'm far from impressed. Coleman can't get back soon enough, but that won't save us from Adams. Give us the damned Byrd! And not the Worley Byrd! Obviously Worley is the weakest link of our corners, but I'm still trying to figure out how in the hell Mack Hollins is able to find two soft spots amid what looked like the better part (or worst part) of our secondary for not one, but two key completions at crucial times. We let them off the hook! My stars, man, the more and more I think about Dave Gettleman, the more I think that he just made too many luxury picks while potholes were filled with sand. One of the big things about our paper evolution was the injection of talent at slot receiver. Our slot guys are hardly getting any play! All of Rivera's talk about the slot and its emergence in our offense is nowhere to be found. This was game fuging six, you have to get your second round, versatile weapon in there for more than a few screens, gadget plays or returns (that never happen because the kicks are out the end zone). You just have to. Moreover, if Samuel is the one with the speed, why not let him try and take the top off the defense sometimes---any time? And then there are those who assured us that "Luke will be fine." Of course the wise among us knew that it was total bullshit when it was being said, but that's why people should do a self reality check when manifesting what amounts to soft trolling when people quite logically tell you that there are limits to optimism. Concussions are real, and for you to say otherwise is sheer stupidity. Anyway, let me stop rambling. The rollercoaster ride moves on smoothly until the next loop.
  6. Shaq Thompson | Time to Walk the Walk

    He's not a bust per se, but he was certainly drafted too high. He is not this transcendent, versatile talent that can hang with receivers, and he doesn't allow us to stay in our base 4-3. His presence is not fooling anyone out there. As a matter of fact, when he's in and asked to cover receivers, the joke is on us.
  7. Are you people blind? Stew hasn't had anywhere to run. Damn!
  8. Start Funchess or Evans FF

    Evans, always. With the draft capital spent on him, how can you sit him? I mean, is he pulling a Cooper or Pryor?
  9. Rivera on blowing leads

    Well, like I alluded to in my thread this week, Rivera seems to be learning. Just curious as to how the firing of Gettleman has affected Ron's analytical musings...
  10. One problem may just be that Rivera and Shula are trying too hard to be game managers on offense instead of allowing Cam to manage the game by being himself.
  11. I don't know if it's going to work either, but don't sell Cam short. I think that he may just be more shrewd than people give him credit for. I know that it's simply just a feeling. But, I was very frustrated and the needle was moving torward writing Cam off as career Panthers QB, and then he puts up arguably his best two games of his career.
  12. Weve matured as a fanbase and Football team.

    Football team? Maybe. Fan base? Not on your life.

    I love you for that @KB_fan!
