  1. Bonnet and McGee gone

    Good Tackles are like good QBs. There just are not to go around. If you think that we can just stockpile them... Sure I would love to have 4 good/decent OTs, but I also am realistic enough to know that EVERY team would love to be in that position. And damm, it ain't happening anywhere else, but we should be the one team that can do it? C'mon men.
  2. Darren Sproles??

    Ah the shiny new toy fascination. Well, in this case it's more the used to be shiny old toy. If Sproles were 5 years younger, I might could get behind this idea. But at this point in time...It is just a silly idea. Not many teams are going to trade for a 33 year old scat back. Especially considering he probably is more or less a scoot back now.
  3. Comfortable with running backs?

    But...compared to zero, that is too many. Fans just expect the players to be perfect. Is that too much to ask? Personally, I thought Cap played well in his limited action. I am comfortable waiting to see if there is growth over off-season. If there is, we are the better for it. If there isn't, darn it to heck why not?
  4. "Mucas" is back!

    I get what you are saying, but there are two things you kinda gloss over. 1) We do run a bunch of 2 TE sets. The problem is, 1 of those TEs is Dickson. He isn't much of a blocker, and is worse as a pass catcher. So upgrading him would allow us to still run our 2 TE sets, but we'd have 2 TEs that could actually catch. But as you said, with our WR corp, looking good, we may just move toward more 3-4 WR sets. All I know is that if we can actually find a 2nd TE that can block as well as catch, Cam will have more weapons that ever. 2) We run the ball as much, if not more, than anyone else. So we do need that 2nd TE to block. Even though Dickson wasn't the best at it, he was still pretty much the best we could do. With Simonson having a full year of experience, as well as a full off season, maybe he can supplant Dickson. With all the TEs we have, it seems like the team is hoping to move in that direction as well. One way or another. We are a very good team, and we are still improving. Man that sounds good to say.
  5. "Mucas" is back!

    Now don't take this as holy writ, but, we are not really the type of team that is going to change much of what we do. We are going to do what we do, and it is up to you to stop us. We do mix up our sets, and run multiple plays from each set. So we are not really that easy to predict. We can run or pass from most of our sets. Which means we are rather diverse without having to go all tricky on you. The main reason we lost that SuperB owl, IMO, was the couple of plays Miller made over Remmers. No strip sack TD and the game could change. No strip sack fumble, and the game could change. Add in the Cotch non catch, and the game could have been different. Denver saying they knew what we were doing really doesn't mean much. Because, as I said, we pretty much do what we are going to do. And we were pretty darn effective doing so. Well, outside of the atl and SB games that is. I would also expect us to pretty much run the same Offense again this year. If you can stop it, and our MVP QB, more power to you. But we are betting you are going to fail, and we are going to succeed.
  6. He Tebowed it. Took a really good team, with a great D and still couldn't win it all. But hey, if you are going to hang your hat on it. Go for it. That Jets team with even a decent QB, could have been a contender. Oh what could have been.
  7. Panthers Release Boykin

    You have to be one pretentious SOB to say; "I didn't read it, but I have an opinion anyway". But you sir, fit the bill. Just think of the good you could do if you used your superior intellect for good instead of being an insufferable dweeb. My God man, you could solve world hunger. Well, actually, he WAS at Rookie Camp. He may have not been there in its entirety. But he did make an appearance, But hey, let's use a false statement to make our points now. Seems fair to me. I mean, it's not like he doesn't have access to the coaches and such. We all know he doesn't take the coaches impressions into account when making decisions. Anyone that has a clue knows that Gman would not make this decision without the blessing of Ron. The two of them are damm near joined at the hip. The only way this cut happens is if Ron can live with it. Us fans may never know what the real reason may be, but Gman did not make this cut unilaterally.
  8. Panthers Release Boykin

    If you truly believe that a Gman would draft a player without consulting Rivera, you are sorely mistaken. Gman and Rivera have offices right down the hall from each other. They talk damm near daily. They have the same philosophy on team building, and chemistry. There is no way in Hell that Gman drafts anyone that Rivera wouldn't want on his team. C;mon man.
  9. Cam Newton's Car

    I used to do tune ups in my parents garage. Back when an Allen wrench and a Phillips head was all you needed. Did it all by feel, and touch. Those were the days. I still have a 73 Monte Carlo cuz it is soooo easy to play with. My best friend had a 72 Charger 442. That thing had a passing gear at 110. It was still picking up speed at 140. Never gone that fast in my life. I had a Mustang GT at the time and thought I was bad. Nowadays you need an engineering degree to even change the damm oil. Sucks for us backyard mechanics.
  10. Panthers Rookie Camp Wrapup

    First off, I pied you because you had 9 pies and mine made a whole pie. Nothing like having a whole pie. Second, great answer. Garrett may indeed have a shot at making the active roster, but it is a long one. Bersin though, has probably no shot. He is great for what he gives you, but we need more than that. KB can be both a possession, and a deep threat. Funch has shown he can do more than we thought. Ginn Jr. can do what he does. Philly, if he could stay healthy, is quality depth. If Garrett is for real, he may be that last WR. With Byrd, and Hill, fighting to prove they belong. So...We have the first year of true competition at WR. There truly is talent fighting for roster spots. Something folks have been clamoring for for years. Too bad for Bersin. He truly could be a quality WR...He can do everything you want out of a WR. Except for that pesky lack of speed thingy. When you have 2 WRs he could be your 3rd. But when you have 4 or 5 fighting for a spot, he is basically outside looking in. Really hate losing a guy who knows the game so well. But sometimes, that is just how it goes. Really could be interesting to see if he could be a coach, cuz he truly does understand the WR position. It does surprise me how many WRs don't understand the position. Getting by on athletic ability alone can only get you so far. Guys like Bersin who acutally understand that position, get left in the wake. tl/dr version: We had the #1 Offense last year. No reason to think it won't be as lethal this year. Makes one giddy for the possibilities.
  11. The Carolina Panthers player of the day is....

    Hey, fans need to get into a rhythm too. If you don't practice complaining, how you gon get good at it?
  12. Technically, every team in the South plays the same schedule. We play each other twice. We play the NFC East, and the AFC West, which is 14 games. The other 2 games you play a team that was in the same position as you. We play 1st place teams. Atl plays 2nd place teams, NO plays 3rd, and Tampa plays the last place teams. Not much of a difference in total. But it is what it is.
  13. Sometimes, no matter how much you prepare, a play happens that just confuses the poo out of you. I feel that is what happened to Cam. He had never experienced a play quite like that before. And for a split second too long, he froze because his brain couldn't compute fast enough. Anyone that has played sports has had a play that confuses them. The first time a weird play occurs, you freeze for just a second because you don't know what to do. But the next time that play happens, it is much easier to make the play. Next time a play like that happens, Cam's brain will automatically know what to do. Like you said; You learn from weird plays. Cuz you sure as shoot can't practice them.
  14. This Guy...

    Here's a thought. If you don't like the thread, start your own. That should insure you have a great thread in which to post. You can't beat a fan that gets mad at other fans for loving their QB.
  15. Jno and his new team.

    I guess me being an adult, I just don't see the reasoning behind folks feeling the need to throw their 2 cents in where is really isn't needed? It always reminds me of a child that just has to let you know they are unhappy. Anyway, it always reminds me of my brother in law. Never let an opportunity pass in which you are able to show your superiority. I mean, it you don't let folks know you are superior, how they gon learn? Maybe we should bring back neg rep for the thread Nazi. Nah, they probably get off on that. But then again. There are threads that are stupid. But, we can mostly tell a stupid thread without some yahoo telling us. For me, I just get tired of the vocal moral minority trying to tell me what to think. I have a wife for that.
