  • 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 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 would think that Jeremy would have planned this out weeks in advance. Perhaps he is seeing how this draft is going and said, "fug it!" The WTF moment happened last night, and can't be topped. LOL Gotta make some dollas! The thing is though, these picks may be our most interesting ones this year.
  2. A Cookie crumbling? Amusing.
  3. Gettleman's biggest weakness IMO

    First of all, you can only do so much in the draft. Other teams have interests and will trade up in front of you, depending. You can't let that affect your board. That's just the nature of the beast. You can lose a lot by playing the move game, so you have to keep your nerve and stay focused and sober-minded. Secondly, I am kinda glad that Getty flipped the script, as I have always thought that you should be savvy enough to shake things up and adapt depending upon the dynamics of a particular draft. Yes, I feel that each draft is its on animal, and each version of your team, its own situation. So, it's refreshing to see that Getty can adapt, which is more pertinent in the later rounds, as far as I'm concerned. On an off note, I used to think that clutching too firmly to his script was Gettleman's biggest weakness. I guess that I can put that notion to bed. Lastly---I don't know because I'm no scout---I just don't see a clear distinction in talent level from one position to the next after the third round this year, so to me it's OK to give up a mid to later round pick to move up and get someone you want. One bird in the hand is better than a dozen in the bush. So weakness...nah. Just keeping his eyes on the prize. He knows what he's doing.
  4. The Panthers Have a 5th and 7th Round Pick Left

    Hunter Sharp may be in our future also.
  5. The Panthers Have a 5th and 7th Round Pick Left

    RB and WR (and TE). Keith Marshall and Moritz Boehringer (and Kivon Cartwright as a UDFA).
  6. Everyone take a deep breath.....

    R-E-L-A-X, folks!
  7. Gettleman says BPA philosophy changed this year.

    Probably the most thoughtful post of day two. 90 percent of the Huddle has gotten a case of amnesia and forgotten that Gettleman is a scout by nature---and a successful one to boot. This truth is evident, regardless if he flipped the script or not. Truth be told, I can see how this striking change in tone has unnerved some people, but from my perspective it shows that Getty is not as rigid as we may have believed. He has the willingness to adapt to the situation---modify and shake things up a bit. This may be a good thing. Gettleman has proved to be a master architect of a championship caliber team. In that regard, it's good to be in the same company as the Seahawks and Patriots. Getty has a great feel for the anatomy of an NFL franchise. He has the most complete vision of where he is leading us, and so far I don't think we can complain too much. Let's relax and watch the evolution of contender to champion.
  8. Best players left going in to day 3

    And at least one, if not both, will likely be gone in round four.
  9. REPORT: Panthers considering TE Jerrell Adams in 3rd

    If we still have a pick come the third round, I am thinking Harlan Miller or Pharoh Cooper

    Igo's secret. He pays Gettleman in these
  11. 2016 NFL DRAFT GENERAL CHATTER SUPER FUN TIME

    Maybe someone does want to trade up in front of Denver, though I can't imagine who now.
  12. 2016 NFL DRAFT GENERAL CHATTER SUPER FUN TIME

    It's looking less and less like we will trade down. Someone we want is probably gonna be there.
