  • Interests 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, and perhaps more importantly read my essays on race at 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.

    Looks like I was right not to count out the golden-haired boy. I can't wait to see what comes of Berse, Brown, Hill and Boykin.
    I'm more disappointed that Hill isn't looking the ball in than the pot charge.

    That's a fair amount of time for a play to set up.

    I'd rather everyone play well, than one play great, but if I had to choose for one to be great, it would have to be Oher. Seeing Cam get pummeled last season, the low being against Philly, was enough for me as a fan to never desire to take part in that experience again.  It was saddening, but also maddening.  I know that he was taking the real beating, but I was taking an emotional beating, cringing with damned near every snap.  I never want to go through that again.

    For me, the story (as it were) is that Reaves got the boot as opposed to Brandon Wegher.  
    I am bustling with enthusiasm about the competition for the first time in a long time.

    Glad that i am not the only one that thinks that's a little weird...perhaps even a little disturbing.
    Who cares if it is a celebrity? If we're all honest with one another, we're just big boys anyway.  Grown men take pics with one another all the time...most just don't take pics of another man's ass and post it on the Internet, much less a football forum.

    I take issue with the link. I would think that she would be on the pole forever...hopefully in matrimony. :)

    I thought only 23 is fully guaranteed, with the other 22 in guarantees kicking in during next off-season.

    This year is different, Ivan...
    I've heard it all before, but think...Cam has another year of experience under his belt. Remember, he still had milk behind the ears when he arrived in Charlotte. Secondly, he has legitimate weapons in fitting with our conventional offense. Say what you want, but Olsen is a rock, and the presence of Benji and Funchess will absolutely command attention. And this doesn't even include potential X-factors like Cotchery, Brown and Dickson (among others).  Moreover, our defense is seasoned and loaded full of athleticism from the front to (dare i say) the back. With their emergence last year later in the year, as well as the addition of Shaq and Peanut, there is every reason to believe that we will only be better.  We will be better...on both sides of the ball.  And I didn't even mention special teams which was G-man's seeming top priority this off-season.  
    Sure, there is a big question on the O-line, and perhaps on the D-line, but we did a good job of compensating last year, kind of figuring it out later in the season. Oher is better than Bell, Ealy showed late improvement, and Big Frank should be more than smoke. We can only get better. 
    We really have too many good pieces to outright suck.  The motivation is there, right along with a big ol' chip.  That should mean modest improvement (two-three games) at the least.  We haven't been in this position in July for years.

    Rivera's prediction for the season (meme, not to be taken seriously...but seriously).
    This caught my eye on my FB feed, so I thought I'd share it with the Huddle.

    To the coming season! Salud!
