  1. "Oh I can get 91, he's cheating it."   Proceeds to draw him off sides multiple times.
  2. Cam, if you read the huddle... Do it. Just do it!

    I'd bet money that if Cam rushes for a first near that star, he may strut to it and do the first down point on it. Which would be sweet.   I don't care either way. Win the game.
  3. Well, let's get down to it

    Short week means less time to enjoy a win for everybody. Big deal, it's Washington. We did what we should have done. Awesome, but now it's time to refocus. The high from this win will be replaced by the agony of losing to Dallas in the regular season, again, if our boys don't show up to play Thursday. While that's not a concern, what is a concern is their receivers. I'm not much on "what we have to do to beat Team X" type of conversations. Why? Because they're stupid. All you need is a formula to beat ANY team. I've stated it several times, and I'm repeating it. -Win the turnover battle -Win time of possession -Win the big play battle (limit the opponent's and get as many as you can) -No stupid penalties -No foolish plays/don't make a bad play worse (throwing the ball wildly in order to avoid a sack, trying to scoop and run with an offensive fumble, etc) -Win the kicking game/ST -Be the most physical team on the field Do those things, you win the game 99% of the time, simple as that. Sound fundamental football. Now, each opponent has their own unique things to consider. For Dallas, this includes: -Stopping their run game. Romo likes working off play action. Take that threat away. -Shut down Dez. Force the other receivers to win the game for them. Dez can be a game changer. -Don't give the other WRs space. Similar to GB, their receivers thrive on running in space and trying to beat you deep. Shutting down Dez forces throws into hopefully tight windows, which is ideal. -Get pressure. Self explanatory. With these receivers, our front 4 are going to have to do it alone more times than not. Good thing CJ is back. Offensively, stick with what we do. Fire off the ball. OL can't allow pressure up the middle, because Dallas has speed outside, which could limit Cam. Push rushers wide, give Cam the middle to run through. Their LBs aren't going to be able to stop Cam coming up at them and having both sides of the field to cut to. Funch has to continue being a threat in order to free up everybody else. There is no reason we should lose this game. None at all. We're the better team, point blank. Dallas can absolutely beat us, but it'll take us not playing at the level we have been and them capitalizing on our mistakes. That's what they're going to bank on, Cam or the defense making mistakes, allowing for them to make plays. Don't give them freebies and be more physical, we win. Good guys 31 Cowgirls 17
  4.   There's no team we SHOULD lose to. We've demonstrated the ability to beat any type of team in various conditions, including being without our best pass rusher AND the league's best linebacker for a quarter of the season. We've shown we can create turnovers and turn those into points, we've shown we can drive long fields with consistency over the course of a game. So yeah, we have ALL the reason to be confident and not scared by anybody. Can we lose this week? Next week? The following week? Absolutely. Should we? Absolutely not. We are the best team in the NFC and there are only a few AFC teams that I think could beat us. And that's assuming they catch us on a bad day. Don't like the confidence of the fan base? Deal with it or go jump on a different bandwagon.
  5. Pets Named after Carolina Panthers

    Oh it is absolutely awesome. Great looking. Bet it's a ton of fun to pet. The dog is OK, too.
  6. Pets Named after Carolina Panthers

    Gel caps because I got tired of being scratched. Still looking for that particular blue though because it'll look awesome.
  7. Pets Named after Carolina Panthers

    Panther is his name. He's celebrating the win in the second pic...or yawning. One of the two.
  8. Redskins social media is trolling Panthers fans

    Fairweather fans here for the most part. A lot of my coworkers were talking how Cam is going to prevent us from finishing .500 before our "tough" 4 game stretch. Now they're all talking each weekend about how good the team and Cam are playing and how they can't wait to catch the game. I haven't seen many Skins fans in Lincolnton, honestly. Plenty of Cowgirls and Steelers fans here, though.
  9. This team is about to hit other dimension good. It's late November, historically great Rivera comes out. This could be scary.
  10. Redskins social media is trolling Panthers fans

    As a Lincoln county resident, I can't wait until 3 AM when they think they can more safely take 16 to 73 back into town rather than running 85 to 321.

    What sets us apart is having a better running game and a better overall defense. Cam might not have the numbers, but the game isn't played with numbers. Cam is as deadly a QB as there is in the league and nobody notices because they evaluate skill with numbers.
  12. What a difference a year makes

    Any given year, a team can go from perennial Super Bowl contenders to bottom of the barrel and vice versa. National media can't handle that fact, which is why every off-season storyline is the same. "Cowboys could make a run this year" "Packers looking to be back in contention" "Seahawks are still a scary team" "Patriots are the class of the NFL" "Saints/Falcons will win the NFC South" (this one literally happens EVERY offseason) "Colts will be contenders in the playoffs" (despite the fact that they only get there by playing in the most consistently soft division in football) Short of a NFC Championship appearance, we'll be pegged to finish second in the division next season. Bank on it. Patriots could lose in the divisional round and they'll be picked to represent the AFC next year. Colts will be picked to push them, as always. Cowboys and Seahawks will be heralded as the class of the NFC outside of Green Bay. It's just ridiculous.
  13. Power rankings

    Strength of schedule means jack. Period. The vast majority of NFL teams have the players that can beat any team. What separates the winning teams from the losing teams is how that team has gelled and the coaching, which often go hand in hand anyway. I refuse to believe the Patriots are better than us. Our brand of football isn't flashy, but it's dominating. It may not appear it based on scores or even with how we allowed the Colts and Packers to almost come back on us, but for any given game, we're totally in control. The Patriots can't exactly say that. I firmly believe that there isn't a team out there that is saying "I can't wait to play Carolina". We have a freak at QB, an OL that just wants to maul you, a RB who is running angry again, and a bunch of young receivers that, on paper, shouldn't beat you...but have been. Couple that with a defense that is terrifyingly physical, well balanced, disciplined, and tight knit, and you have a recipe for whooping up on teams. Show me a team in the league that is top-to-bottom as stout and determined as ours and I'll call you a liar or mistaken.
  14. GRITS

    I just had a revelation. Ready?. Grits hated Cam. Grits disappeared. Grits has not been heard from. PanthersUnited shows up and we have no idea if he's a fan or not some weeks. Lately, he's more of a straight shooter, but still, his posts are....odd. Grits possibly got tired of pulling for perennial losers. We are on the upswing as of late last year. PanthersUnited shows up early this year (I believe January...playoff time). Grits is PanthersUnited. PanthersUnited is Grits. EINHORN IS FINKLE!
  15. I keep hearing "you guys need that 1 loss"

    It's John Madden-esque, but if you score more points than the other team, then you're gonna win the game. And if you win every game you play, then you win the Super Bowl. Boom. Tough actin' Tinactin.
