  1. Are there any players on The Huddle?

    Well...we ran Dan Morgan off being shitheads once.  So we have that going for us at least!
  2. There's not much he could do related to football directly that would cause me to feel differently about him.   He's one of the best QBs to ever play the game.  He could Favre his retirement around for years and I wouldn't feel differently about that. I might wonder what the hell he's thinking wanting to subject himself to that abuse with his body breaking down but I have respect for him as a player and that's not likely to change.
  3. Why is it that Cam is automatically the bad guy here and the media at-large are automatically the good guys anyway?   They (generally, not all of them, but a lot of them) created an environment where Cam probably doesn't trust them, probably doesn't care for them, and probably doesn't care whether he makes their lives any easier or not.  In more easy to understand terms...if your neighbor's dog bites your hand enough times you're going to stop trying to pet that dog right? No Cam did not act in accordance with the cookie-cutter "this is how you act / speak / respond after losing no matter what you lost or how your lost it" template.  Nor did the media, who believe themselves to be somehow entitled to exactly what they want, handle not getting what they want very well.  If anything I believe the vitriolic stories and spoiled-brat, name-calling, nonsense directed at Cam after they didn't get what they wanted / expected are worse.  Side note?  I identify far more closely with Cam's actions, statements, and attitude than that of the stereotypical "good loser".  I think a lot of people feel this way too if they're honest with themselves (not everyone, but more than you'd think by reading comments on the subject) As long as Cam fulfills his obligations as set out by the NFL in such a way that he's not fined then I don't care if he ever says another word to any of them.  If I were him I probably wouldn't.   Hell maybe the next time Voth asks him a question he should just start reading quotes out of Voth's old articles back to him regardless of what the question is.  At least it'd make people laugh.
  4. Carolina Panthers Top 3 Offseason Priorities

    Can we just bury (or at least partially cover with dirt) the Stew isn't reliable and won't make it through a season narrative?  He was a workhorse for us this year and an important part of our very good offense.  At the end of the season when he had some dings he sat out some time where he probably would have played if our record wasn't as good as it was. I'm 100% with needing to address the future of the position (especially if they don't think CAP is the future of that position) but the statements made by some I don't want to dignify with a "you got quoted" notification that he's a huge problem are so far off base I'm not sure they're in the same ballpark as said base.  
  5. NFL Turning Point: The Clete Blakeman Effect

    I wonder how Broncos fans feel about their victory being the *third* biggest storyline from the Super Bowl
  6. Getting Benji Back

    Personally I'm excited to see what our receivers look like next year with KB back and other guys bumping down the pecking order thus getting easier matchups (assuming they stay healthy).  KB not only makes the unit better by just being there and raising the average but he lets guys like Ginn and Brown match up against different defenders and thus get more winnable matchups while Olsen and KB draw the worst of the coverage guys. I don't expect to go through the offseason without signing *any* WR talent but I'd be shocked if what was added was anything more than a depth piece or a roleplayer who could complete near the bottom of the order.
  7. NFL Turning Point: The Clete Blakeman Effect

    I'll admit as readily as anyone that the officiating in that game was poor (at best) but some of the conspiracy talk is just a weeeeeee bit too far over the edge. The bad officiating certainly did contribute heavily to our loss but even with the bad / biased (intentionally or not) officiating we would have won the game had we not beaten ourselves with the most untimely turnovers ever and some really boneheaded decisions by both players and coaches.
  8. Is WFNZ in trouble?

    I sort of like Mac's show, Frank's show (usually - sometimes this one goes a little wonky for me), and Kroeger's show.  Colin / Nate's show is just awful to me.  I turn it off / listen to something else during that time-slot.  Truly barely an upgrade over that Jensen fellow they had there before. I exclusively listen via streaming over my phone...and the promos are annoying as hell.  Not something that would cause me to *stop* listening though.
  9. This would be such a non-issue if people hadn't previously thought Voth would take a different stance.  What he's saying isn't much removed from the crap we've had to hear the Observer / [insert national media outlet here] spew about Cam for years.  He's not even the first local guy to sour me a little this way (I still like Voth and I hope this is a phase instead of becoming yet another professional Cam detractor / unsolicited indirect life advice giver) For now I just put him in the "shrug and wander off without reading his stuff" category.  The sad part, really, is that as an independent journalist he probably does care about traffic.  Myself?  I'm taking a bit of a break from his site - not because I don't think he should be allowed to voice his opinions but because they aren't even in the same ballpark as mine on this and I don't choose to support them.  
  10. I just don't understand why so many of you are so desperate to "call someone out".  poo
  11. Im with Sean Payton's Vicodin.. Just ban me also

    It's possible this is the first PU post I've ever supported - give the man what he wants!
  12. With Cam as QB do we have a shorter 'window'?

    Nope.  He will be fine and his game will continue to evolve as he gets older.  Of all the things to be worried about this doesn't even rate for me 
  13. The media seems to get it

    Honestly I dont want him to apologize for a thing.  I love Cam as our QB exactly as he is...viscerally hating to lose and all.  We all fall in love with him wearing his emotions on his sleeve when we are winning but want something different after a loss?  I don't buy it.  Cam should be Cam - period.  I support him 100%. 
  14. The Fall of Cam Newton

    Cam was not even in our top 3 problems tonight.  Yes he could have played better.  So too could anyone else on the team. But if you're making a list of poo to fix leave him off it. 
  15. Cam's pregame cleats tomorrow

    Do like.  Those are hot as hell
