you are the only Saints fan ive ever met that actually sounds intelligent and reasonable about football topics. lol i feel bad for the kid that he will miss playing time. But anything that can help the Panthers win is not something im going to lose sleep over. im sure you felt the same about Benjamin.
stop making sense! its too much for these people! haha this^ also, Norwood supposedly has a penchant for doubling back to the ball when a play breaks down. i did not see Boykin do that once. couple that with the fact that he obviously had no chemistry with Cam since he didnt catch a pass from Cam all preseason, and its no surprise he is out the door. its really tempting to panic when you see a WR catching passes from your backup quarterback, thinking the WR would do the same thing with your starter, and then the WR gets cut. but i am no armchair GM. this front office has proven that they know how to build a strong roster and the only reason everyone is panicking is because they dont agree with this move. You all have pretty much agreed with the moves made up to this point, why the sudden distrust? and all y'all who act like you know better than the GM of the team, who spends time in practice with the players and has a stellar scouting background, you all make me laugh and shake my head. youre no better than bandwagon fans, or those fans that still think Deangelo Williams is on the roster. you people have a choice as a "fan" of a team: 1) get pissy about things you have no control over and essentially no hands-on knowledge about and wallow in misery, or 2) accept that you have no control over it and cheer just as hard come September 13th no matter who is spit wide on the field. are you a fan or not? if you are, get over yourself and support your damn team. if you cant do that when you dont agree with the decisions of management, then you are no fan. you got that right. jesus i have enough stress in my own life. i use football as an escape, not an outlet. i cant afford to freak out about what the Panthers are doing when i am a senior in college trying to find a job and pay off my debt, all while maintaining some form of social life.
this coming from the person who defends Mike Shula to no end. im neither a Rivera supporter nor a Rivera trasher. the man has his weaknesses, but he also has his strengths. and that doesnt mean that Gettleman cant be credited with lighting a fire undre RR's ass. he had to at the end of last season with our special teams coach. the fact of the matter is that Rivera and Gettleman share the credit and blame for every decision made by the organization to this point. in terms of building a solid roster, they have done a great job. we still have weaknesses and talent-depleted position groups, but given what they had to work with, the Panthers' front office has earned my respect and deference. you cant think that Gettleman is great and Rivera sucks. their decisions are pretty much made as a singular voice when it comes to personnel issues.
I always though the panthers should play their home games at college stadiums in the Carolinas whenever they rebuild the stadium. Take an 8 game "home" tour at: USC Columbia UNC Chapel Hill Clemson Duke Coastal Carolina Western Carolina NC State and whatever the 3rd biggest school is in. SC lol
