  1. Bill Voth: "Panthers Are Allowing Cam To Look Like A Baby."

    whining about this whiny generation my favorite
  2. Bill Voth: "Panthers Are Allowing Cam To Look Like A Baby."

    maybe i'm stupid or missing something here but it seems like all the calls for cam to "man up" or "act more mature" basically equate to "look good to the media". the front office, coaching staff, his teammates, and the fans are sure as hell still behind him so i'm sort of lost as to what functional purpose reciting "mature" canned responses in a suit at a postgame presser accomplishes other than that.
  3. Replay assistant for SB50, was a Broncos fan

    up until recently there were probably more fans of other teams living in charlotte than actual panthers fans because it's a transplant city so yeah i'd say that's more of an assumption
  4. Replay assistant for SB50, was a Broncos fan

    it looks like you're assuming that someone who lives in charlotte is a panthers fan by default there are a few things you need to learn about sports fans in charlotte
  5. God Damn theirs a lot of pent up Cam hate

    unless you're a broncos fan the panthers had a better season than your favorite team last year. we'll see how funny this all is in 2016 when your poo team goes into the locker room down 27 at halftime.
  6. Well, being that we're already hated .. Sign Hardy

  7. We lost to Atlanta because Vic Beasley is basically Von Miller

    john abraham was a one dimensional pass rusher who deangelo williams and jonathan stewart spent several years blowing past with the way atlanta's defensive interior looks right now i'd welcome that
  8. God Damn theirs a lot of pent up Cam hate

    maybe cam should have just stood up at the podium with a furrowed brow and fumed about how he's trying to be a good teammate here but there were protection problems like peyton manning did in 2006
  9. My take on the Cam Newton fumble.

    that's all well and good raleigh-panther it's also completely irrelevant provided the front office, coaching staff, and cam's teammates have his back.
  10. God Damn theirs a lot of pent up Cam hate

    it feels kind of good to be a fan of a team that makes the majority of the country happy when it loses.  i'm not sure why-i think it might be what i've heard referred to as "relevance".
  11. "Show me a good loser... "

    i'm convinced that very few or none of them sat in half empty stadiums watching the likes of chris weinke and jimmy clausen my first live panthers game was the 13-12 loss to the jets in 2001.  i have seen some shitty panthers football and what's going on now is a million times better than that.
  12. "Show me a good loser... "

    i've read enough bullshit from people just like what you described in the second sentence to kind of rough out a profile for them. i think it's mostly based on this: there are some people who are just hopelessly in love with the concept of a scrappy, underestimated, and ultimately relatable guy like jake delhomme quarterbacking their favorite team.  a guy who has been overlooked time and again but is such a great story.  that's the "real" carolina panthers to them.  a quarterback like jake coached by a guy like john fox playing "tuff physical footbawl" aka winning games 16-13 or losing terribly but with oh so much heart.  matt moore is a good fit for this concept as well.  they're terrified of anybody paying any attention to the panthers because they've bought into the "under the radar" myth and they're willing to go 8-8 every year for all eternity so long as they've got their scrappy fiery gritty leader to root for.  they're willing to tolerate some star power at certain positions, of course.  but there is one spot where such a thing gives them diarrhea, which brings me to my next point- the way the panthers are now is alien and strange to them.  explosive offense run by a chiseled rock star quarterback picked at the tippy top of the draft who wins serious national accolades in the form of league MVP and a first team all pro selection.  if there's a grocery list of things that are completely wrong for "their" panthers, that's it.  a guy who plays more like the widely loathed michael vick (except not really but you know what they really mean when they make that comparison) than a sloth-like "traditional" pocket passer who gets taken down by an unusually tall blade of grass. cam newton will never be able to do anything right by these people.  he's keyed a culture change in this organization and no matter what any idiot says i don't think it would have happened if we took, say, christian ponder or jake locker in that draft or got cute trying to sign a cheap quarterback and "surround him with weapons" like josh mccown in tampa bay last season.  even if a team quarterbacked by cam brings a lombardi to charlotte there will always be some reason that he doesn't deserve any credit for it.
  13. My take on the Cam Newton fumble.

    if anything this has taught me that years of running over guys trying to kill him and the 2014 season as a whole (particularly the eagles game that i'm honestly surprised he made it out of alive) doesn't prove he's tough in the minds of a lot of people but this one incident does prove that he's a bitchmade diva somehow
  14. If Cam Newton wasn't a Panther...

    a lot of the criticism he gets and the ridiculous disdain some people have for him goes about a light year beyond the "i don't like him because he doesn't play on my team" factor i wouldn't take it there if he played for another team.
  15. "Show me a good loser... "

    oh but he looked so bad walking out of a press conference never mind the fact that his teammates, coaching staff, and the front office have his back.  there are neckbeards on twitter dishing out cam newton hot takes and if we don't win back the michael proctons of the world what do we have?
