  1. Super Bowl 51 Is Ours

    Thank you. There is no guarantees in even getting back to the playoffs in the next 5 years. I am 100% sure that the Seahawks thought they would be in this game. I mean who in the hell in the NFC was going to stop them? I am 100% sure the 49ers thought they would be back to the superbowl. I am 100% sure the Packers thought with Rodgers they would be back by now.   You never get over a SB loss. Until you absolutely win one. And even then you still wonder what could have been.  
  2. Do you trust Gano?

    Wait a minute. Nortman literally punted the ball 25 yards when we had the ball at midfield in the second. There is no way in that situation you punt the ball 25 yards when you have a great chance of pinning Manning inside his own 15 yard line. You might be right on the other punts, but no way that punt that lead to our shitty coverage team not tackling the returner (which lead to 3 points) was about hang time.
  3. Do you trust Gano?

    I didn't trust our entire special teams. I thought to myself prior to this game, that even if our offense didn't score, we must move the ball in order to minimize the effect of our special teams. In addition to missing the FG: We never gained anything after a fact we lost yardage because of penalties We couldn't punt the ball inside the 20. Despite one time punting from the 50 We gave up a huge return after not being able to punt the ball inside the 20. On that huge return, if our punter would have punted the ball more than 25 yards, then the Broncos return man would have let the ball bounce inside the 20. Even our extra point and other field goal we did make looked terrible.
  4. Blandino on the no catch call

    While that was a bad was clearly a catch. Cotch had NO reason to even bobble the ball to begin with. If he catches the ball he would probably have run for another 10 yards or so given how slow he is. If that was any top 20 NFL WR that pass might have gone for a TD. Again, we must get better at the WR position. We cannot keep putting every yard in the passing game on the right arm of Newton. We have got to get WRs that can catch AND then RUN.
  5. Cam was let down by his offense

      Cam didn't play a bad game. He didn't play a great one either. He missed two throws. He also made about 5 throws that should have been caught including the one pass challenged-- there was no reason for Cotch to bobble that ball-- and other Cotch drop that would have put the Panthers inside the 5.  Cam's WRs are what they are. We need to get better and more explosive in that area.
  6. Even Wade Phillips is trolling Cam on Twitter

    Exactly. I will take the good with the bad. Cam's attitude has brought him this far in his career. Cam's attitude is what brought him this far, this year. Cam's attitude is also what brought a fairly talent-less offense to the No. 1 scoring. As Cam said, he is who he is. And he is not about to change.
  7. So where does Carolina finish next year?

    No, there is nothing wrong with being optimistic. And of course we could be back next year... But unfortunately history is littered with teams who haven't. Just would have loved for us to seize this unexpected moment and win one. 
  8. So where does Carolina finish next year?

    Everyone keeps acting like we are promised something next year. We are not. That is what makes losing in the SB so horrible.  Nothing is promised. See, the team whose stadium we played in today. For all we know, next year Drew Brees gets a defense and NO wins, or Lovie Smith (I doubt it) was really holding the Bucs back and they win the division, or Vic Beasley turns into a monster and Jones turns into prime Jerry Rice/Moss and Atlanta wins. Nothing is promised to you, and that is what will hurt the most.   EDIT: Oh, and it is also possible that one of our key player goes down with a major season-ending injury and we fall apart unlike this season. That is a possibility too. 
  9.   Exactly. Atlanta fans can shut the hell up. Cam Newton, with about 1/10 the offensive talent surrounding him as Ryan, has 3x the playoff victories and an MVP.
  10. I hope DG learned something tonight

    This x1000!  Do not turn this into a Lebron situation when he was in Cleveland. We see what Cam can do with a fairly talent-less offense. We see what Cam can do when he is clearly the most athletic person on the offense. We see what Cam can do when he is the only person that the defense really has to game plan for. Yes we see that Newton is capable of winning a SB with less than perfect offensive pieces. Enough is enough. Stop with the defense needs this...the defense lacks that. We have been building the defense since Newton got here.  If they don't have enough to get it done (they already do) with Ron Rivera as our Head Coach and our constant supplying them with talent...then too bad.   Cleveland wasted a good portion of Lebron's prime trying to surround him spare parts instead of simply getting TALENT. The talents of Newton does not give the Panthers the right to ignore that side of the ball and hope that "Superman" can bail them out. Enough is enough.
  11. I'm here all night to defend Cam..

    Thank you. This offense must get a dynamic play maker. Cam Newton should not be our only dynamic player on offense. Literally, the only thing defenses fear is Newton. That cannot continue to be so into the future. We must start building a team that reflects the awesome ability of our QB.
  12. Cam pouting at the podium

    As one of Cam's biggest supporters, I must say what I am disappointed in more than anything is that he did not wear what he normally wears after a game. No suit, no tie. Personally, you have to operate like you always operate--in the ups and in the downs-- The way he responded and then walking out is problematic but you have to suck it up, get it over with, and come back better.   But I didn't like all season seeing a dressed up Newton, and then suddenly Newton is a track suit with a hoodie. It's just a bad look.
  13. I have always said that Shula is not our biggest problem on offense (this was before this season) but that NO top 25 college team would hire him for the exact same position. Shula doesn't have a lot to work with but he is a problem. Now with that said, Shula was right. Newton didn't play good enough to win. But he better not be the one to say so when you called the exact same running play on first down.
  14. Offseason - Offense or Defense for DG

    Based on the response of this thread, I am really afraid that I was right about Carolina, our front office, and this board. Two years ago, I said that I am afraid that Newton will end up like Donovan McNabb. Playing with a great defense...but year after year after year after year playing on a offense in which he was the best athlete CONSTANTLY. On an offense that the only thing the defense has to account for his him. Being on an offense whereby he was by far the greatest playmaker. At what point do we stop "McNabbing" or "Lebronning" Newton? At what point do we say...enough of the dumping resource, after resource, after resource into the defense (really the front 7) and we it time that we start putting talent around our Franchise QB and league MVP? I fear for Newton...I really do. I fear that Newton will end up exactly like McNabb or Lebron.
  15. Lets be honest our O-Line was never that good

    I think our oline is solid...played better this year than I expected...our WR core for the most part cost us the game...there were moments when Newton had time and for the most part the WRs either dropped or tipped the ball into the air for an INT. We have got to get weapons on the outside. We cannot keep depending on the right arm of Cam Newton. There is ZERO YAC in this offense. Therefore, the offense requires Newton to continually make plays and then hope the WR don't fumble or otherwise blow it. Newton also could have played better this game. Philly Brown, once again getting injured in the playoffs didn't help either.
