  • 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.

    There is actually some truth to what both you guys are saying depending on one's perspective. I see a little bit of posturing and basic disrespect on both sides.
     Just like throwing it out of bounds is sometimes the correct play,  so is agreeing to disagree.

    I bet Lola would die to see Kuechly's unit.

    David Newton: Panthers trainers go high tech
    Now here is something that I absolutely knew nothing about. The Panthers use this GPS device called a Viper pod to measure all sorts of things pertaining to a player's performance.  If you're a geek, David Newton's article may be somewhat fascinating. 
    I know that what I mostly think of in terms of technical devices and improvements in the game pertain to more external things like wireless headsets, tablets and tracking footballs. I never imagined that the players were running around with devices that tracked their every move.  
    Who knows, maybe one day tech consultants will be able to help design plays based upon data? Just a thought. Shula, the mad scientist...

    We are between a rock and a hard place. Of course Funchess needs the reps, but is it worth risking a nagging rookie-year injury (which, quite frankly, could be the case already)?  If the Panthers don't manage this injury, then they may be forced to do without Funchess until some time in October.  I say sit him.

  8. top dawg added a post in a topic Shula: KB's void may be filled by committee, talks up CB   

    This thread is really not about the draft or a trade at all. I think most people are "surprised" by the fact that Boykin and Byrd are apparently not on track to get more reps with the first team, not that we don't have another option to 'light it up' like Smitty. Not to mention Brandon Wegher and Lee Ward.  
    To be honest I am "surprised", but not not surprised that Shula and Rivera won't give these guys some more first team looks---actually I'm dismayed.  This is about the most conservative franchise in the NFL as it pertains to adjusting to the situation at hand. Chud was the obvious anomaly.

  9. top dawg added a post in a topic Panthers taking Patriots game seriously   

    That meant nothing. Vanilla packages and schemes were most likely abound. Most teams actually plan for the third preseason game. Historically games one, two and four are primarily used for evaluation purposes. The third game is where they actually game-plan and scheme for a specific opponent with our starters in mind.
    What Jeremy is telling you is that you'll be watching as close to the real thing into the third quarter. Scrutinize things from that perspective.

    As you can see GRWatcher said he was having issues on his desktop, also. Me too, right now, come to think of it.  
    But, getting back on track, if you could answer what your feelings are about Byrd and his overall ability/potential from your your impressions, it would be much appreciated.  I know that I am a fan that isn't privy to the inner workings of the team, but Byrd appears to me to be a more smooth route runner who takes the ball out of the air and pulls it in with all one motion, seemingly naturally and effortlessly.

    Brown has Cam's cannon's coming his way now. He probably corrals those balls the best way he can.

  12. top dawg added a post in a topic This Jarrett Boykin highlight vid makes me feel good..   

    It should go without saying that last year was too small of a sample to judge anything.  Plus,  the guy was hurt according to our resident @Packersfan

    Yes,  it could be exclusive to quotes.  Whatever it is,  I am letting @@Jeremy Igo know.
    It's only an issue on my Phone/tablet.
