  1. As long as I don't have to see Harper standing flat-footed in front of a ball carrier, I'll be fine with any of these guys.
  2. Gettleman says BPA philosophy changed this year.

    Why is their no video of the GM presser? I've been checking the Panthers website repeatedly.
  3. Draft or Hornets?

    There are two kinds of "action" I would take 3 minutes of over a Hornets game: Panther action being one of them. But like others have said, we don't have to choose.
  4. Don't look for a big move to replace Josh Norman

    All I want to know is why does everyone call them "corners?" We never say, "Cam is a great quarter," or "Wonder if we'll draft a running this year."
  5. Ginn, Brown and Funchess: "Witness Protection Program"

    Philly was balling in that superbowl.
  6. Rank your Top5 sports team you root for

    Panthers Panthers Panthers Panthers Panthers Seriously, I have one team in one sport and that's it. Only 16 (regular season) games a year to watch my team play.
  7. Von Miller Admits to Illegally Batting Ball

    The link the guy posted shows definitively that Talib was not offsides. That was news to me, honestly.
  8. Is Rivera cutthroat enough to make the tough decisions?

    Please don't say things like "not too complicated to understand," which is an attempt to insult another's intelligence. Besides, what you say about the development of rookies doesn't contradict anything I said. In fact, I was not arguing that Rivera should play rookies sooner, only trying to rebut the argument that Rivera's willingness to play rookies at the end of last season is compelling evidence that he does not give unnecessary preference to veterans. It isn't, since the lack of quality players last year explains why so many rookies were playing at that point. In actuality, discussions of rookie development have little to do with why a coach would give crucial snaps to guys like CJ and Allen over Ealy (not a rookie) or Harper crucial snaps over Boston (not a rookie). Ealy looked to be unguardable Sunday night. Had he started, he could have strip-sacked Manning on the opening drive and changed everything. Who knows? That's why you start and play your best players.
  9. Is Rivera cutthroat enough to make the tough decisions?

    I remember this whole debate last offseason, and I never found the rookie-playing argument persuasive. Yes, we played rookies down the stretch last year but that was only AFTER the consistently bad play of guys forced the coach's hand. Some of our starters were so bad, they got cut midseason (Decoud, Cason if I remember correctly). And I love Coach Rivera, but you don't really get credit for starting 1st round picks like Newton, Kuechly, and Benjamin. Put me down as a fan who thinks Rivera is still too slow in putting veterans on the bench. The playing time this year of Harper over Boston and ANYONE over Kony Ealy is ample evidence for me.
  10. video of Cam responding to criticism

    I have to say I'm disappointed to hear Cam say he didn't dive for the fumble for fear of his leg. I thought for sure he did not dive initially at the ball because he instinctively knew it would pop out (which it did).
  11. Both Brown and Ginn got separation a number of times during the game, which does not cohere with the national storyline that the Denver defensive backs were "suffocating" throughout the game.
  12. Getting Annoyed

    Ha. Yeah, I saw that guy. I cracked up one moment when someone on set said something about the Broncos losing and he acted all mad. You know, mad, because he's such a serious Broncos fan.
  13. Superb Owl Push

    I'd like to be clear on this. Do you have to pay your own expenses to make it to the games?
