  1. I would like to be the first to say...

    Weinfuss: Nelson comes up big for Cardinals With newcomers like J.J. Nelson stepping up and stars like Carson Palmer, who threw four more TD passes on Sunday, standing tall, the Cardinals showed why they could be the class of the NFC. That is on the front page of espn right now.  Get the fug out of here with that nonsense.  We won by 4 TD, they won by a bs field goal.
  2. I don't like that.... I DON'T LIKE THAT

    Alright Kurt, show me on this doll where the Panthers touched you.
  3. Nikon 70-200 2.8 .... Saying goodbye

    If the BOSS is willing to discard his lens which he loves after so much service, imagine what he'll do to us who he barely tolerates.
  4. Keep Pounding

    If you are a new fan of the Carolina Panthers, welcome.  Today I'd like to invite you to learn about our motto, Keep Pounding, that came from the late Sam Mills Jr.  Hopefully after this you'll understand that it's more than our motto, it's how we live. Sam Mills Jr., The Spirit of the Carolina Panthers Mills: "When I found out I had cancer, there were two things I could do – quit or keep pounding," Mills told the team at one point. "I’m a fighter. I kept pounding. You’re fighters, too. Keep pounding!" Those were the words Sam Mills said to the Carolina Panthers the night before a first-round home playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys following the 2003 regular season. The former Carolina linebacker had been diagnosed with intestinal cancer hours before showing up to coach the linebackers for the 2003 preseason finale. Given only a couple of months to live, he didn't miss a game that season. On the Thursday before the Super Bowl, after yet another round of chemotherapy, Mills flew to Houston to be with the team. At a news conference with linebacker Mark Fields, who was diagnosed with Hodgkin's disease earlier in training camp, you could tell he was weak. Sweating and holding onto the podium to support his 5-foot-9 frame, Mills said, "You have your good days and your bad days. I am just glad I am having days, you know?'' Mills passed away in 2005 at the age of 45, but his "Keep Pounding'' message lives on. The words are inscribed in the weight room at Bank of America Stadium, and in large letters by the team meeting rooms. They are on the inside collar of every jersey. The mantra permeates throughout the entire organization “This was one of the bigger victories that we have had since I have been here. One of the things that stood out and one of the things that l liked today was the resiliency. One of the things that I told the guys on the sideline was to keep pounding. One of the things that I told Cam was just to take it one at a time. Let’s get one score at a time. Let’s not press it ... We turned the ball over unfortunately and you do that against good football teams, your going to lose. Fortunately enough for us, the defense held and forced field goals. When you forced field goals, you give yourself a chance to win. Ron Rivera on the win in Seattle Mike Tolbert has heard the critics question the legitimacy of the Carolina Panthers’ unbeaten start to the season.  The veteran fullback laughs it off, saying he couldn’t care less.  “You can doubt us all you want,” Tolbert said. “We’re just going to keep pounding, just like our motto says.” "Because we’re resilient," Josh Norman said. "We kept pounding. We believed until the end. Even a 5 a.m. wake up call out in the rain. That’s what’s up. That’s cool. Even when we were down by 10 or 13. That’s cool. We kept pounding. We kept pounding regardless. The fact of the matter is the scoreboard. Down the last play of the game, 2 minutes, they ran it with excellent execution. Funchess came back and made some excellent plays after he dropped some. The epitome of Keep Pounding is this team. … I don’t know what else to say to you guys. The analysts want to keep picking us to lose, keep picking us to lose. We appreciate that." More than a motto, it's a way of life Keep Pounding Drummer Immediately following the coin toss before every home game, an honorary drummer rallies the entire stadium by hitting the massive six-foot Keep Pounding Drum four times to signify four quarters. Keep Pounding Drummers come from a variety of backgrounds and occupations, but all have overcome a great trial or adversity that has not only made them strong but also pushes them to make others around them stronger. Levine Children's Hospital Visits Through a partnership with Carolinas Medical Center, the Carolina Panthers make monthly visits to Levine Children's Hospital, including a special visit by the Rookie Class in October to celebrate Halloween. Keep Pounding 5.1 Blood Drive The Carolina Panthers and Community Blood Center of the Carolinas host the Keep Pounding 5.1 Blood Drive annually on May 1. The date pays tribute to late Panthers player and coach Sam Mills, who coined the phrase "Keep Pounding” during an emotional speech before the Panthers' NFC Wild Card game versus Dallas during the 2003 playoffs. The blood drive benefits 21 area hospitals in North and South Carolina. Additional information can be found at:    
  5. One Panther makes pffs all worst team

    I would be interested to know if the improvement in the offensive line is significant enough to Gettleman, Rivera, and Shula, that they'd be willing to get another pass catching TE.  One day having an offense of Benjamin, Funchess, Olsen, New TE, a speedster in either Ginn Jr. or Brown, and CAP out of the backfield, would be fun to watch.
  6. Best information I've read in a long time.  Thanks O-Ther!
  7. I am not being sarcastic or joking when I said I didn't know we had service animals in the military.  How cool is that!
  8. You guys are impressive!

    We know.
  9. Actually on this one he's not wrong at the moment at least when it comes to strength of victory: Panthers 0.444 8-0 Patriots 0.422 8-0 Broncos 0.421 7-0 Bengals 0.394 8-0
  10. Props from our Division Rivals

    Important Question: Should we go to, put aside our differences, and form a truce against the Panthers? I will probably be supporting the Saints to defeat the Panthers when they play This is how I know we've arrived.
