Gastonia has its fair share of rednecks and hicks, as does most areas of NC including large cities. Some of the finest people I've ever met were from Gastonia. I'm from Charlotte and now live in Western NC, and we have just as many country bumpkins here in Swain County. Sometimes I fit in that category. Go Panthers!
Not having KB has probably expedited his ability to get to his 2nd and 3rd reads quicker. Cam is a naturally "gifted" athlete with a strong desire to get better, so I feel like he will continue to improve regardless of the situation. It's in his DNA to try and be the best. That's what makes him special. I want Cam to be surrounded by elite talent as much as the rest of you guys, and I trust G-man to get us there ASAP. In the meantime, successfully facing adversity builds character. The determination Cam has exhibited during these first 4 games has been phenomenal. Anyone who questions his growth and leadership is a dumbass and a hater.
I realize he's not a Pro Bowler, but he catches the ball consistently. I don't understand all the low ceiling stuff. How is anyone on this forum qualified to say that or know that. I'm greatful no one looked at me early in my career and just decided he can only go so far.
Statistically there is zero direct correlation between a fans thoughts and feelings to a players thoughts and feelings. You are correct. i do however believe fans can have a positive effect on player motivation during critical portions of a game when they chant "Keep Pounding".
Had sausage egg, and cheese burritos this morning with hot sauce. Placed a boneless chuck roast in the crockpot this am. (Marinated in "Dales" sauce all night) Plan to have mashed potatoes and mac n cheese as sides. I could think of better sides, but I don't want to spend too much time in the kitchen. Grandkids usually join me for the game. I am creating 3 more Panther fanatics.
