  2. Sorry. Gettlemens Draft This Year Blows

    yeah the patriots thing was an exaggeration. but, ron goes and gettleman has to hire a new head coach and coaching staff? i think we'd get by. and that's no slight against rivera. e: and nah, i don't think any amount of coaching would have helped that defense stop anybody. it was almost the worst in the league and was pathetic talent-wise due to injuries early in the season. that was a major reason why we couldn't hold on to leads.
  3. Sorry. Gettlemens Draft This Year Blows

    we might have won a few more games in 2012 but i think even the 2007 patriots would have had a ceiling of 9-7 on the 2011 team no matter how many times ron would have gone for it on 4th down. the 2011 team was one of the top offenses in football that season, tied for 5th in scoring but was still 6-10. i think a lot of the losing that year had to do with an immense amount of pressure being put on cam to win in shootouts because we just couldn't stop anybody on the other side of the ball, and it was a genuine personnel problem. the LB corps was atrocious after davis and beason went down and it's not like a d-line with charles johnson, a still-developing greg hardy, and two rookie starters who would prove to be eventual busts was anything but a sieve funneling punishment at them. i'm not even sure riverboat ron makes an extra win's worth of difference in 2011. chud came out of the gate having cam sling it all over the field and it still didn't translate to wins.

  7. Bradberry given JNo's number

    the panthers should ditch numbers altogether to be safe
  8. Josh Norman (Player's Tribune Column) on the Panthers

    "fan" is short for "fanatic" you're free to expect somebody who applies that to themselves to use sound reasoning to arrive at their positions but i don't recommend it.

  10. Josh Norman (Player's Tribune Column) on the Panthers

    like when the steve smith fans were going ballistic i knew they were just pissed off and didn't mean half the poo they were saying.
  11. Josh Norman (Player's Tribune Column) on the Panthers

    i call those human emotions actually. most people probably aren't going to stay butthurt forever. if someone was legitimately all about josh norman and then they say he sucks now that he's off the panthers then they're being inconsistent. typically a "fairweather fan" is used in a team sense not with just one player. and what this fanbase and local media does is kindergarten compared to the NFC east teams. i am being 100% serious when i say that i hope he's ready.
  12. Josh Norman (Player's Tribune Column) on the Panthers

    who the hell is being fairweather if anything saying that josh sucks now that he's not a panther makes you a massive homer which is the exact opposite of that
  13. Broncos should double team Olsen and...

    there's something you need to understand about "southern hospitality", and it's that it basically means "we're not as upfront about the fact that we don't like you"
  14. how do i change my user name

  15. Sorry. Gettlemens Draft This Year Blows

    i know, i remember that. hurney rightfully received that kind of hype wrongly or rightly because the franchise was relevant in ways that it hadn't been before over his first handful of years. i was a big hurney fan until 2009 myself. i didn't pin things down to a particular time frame when i referred to a "run of success" because i believe the current one is ongoing. the panthers followed 2005 with two consecutive non-winning non-playoff seasons, a one-and-done playoff loss that's easily on the short list of the worst games in franchise history, an 8-8 non-playoff season, then three straight losing seasons before hurney was finally canned. i don't even need to mention the awe-inspiring parade of shitshow drafts, trades, and contracts from 2009-2012 because we're all familiar with them. i think what gives gettleman the edge and what will eventually bring the franchise a title is his scouting experience and the fact that he's been immersed in the actual blood and guts of championship football for decades. hurney didn't have that kind of background. i know you didn't bring this up, but i've seen it over and over again as of late, and one of the major criticisms hurled at gettleman (he doesn't have to do anything bc the core was drafted by another guy!) was true of the early hurney years too. jenkins, smitty, moose, minter, rucker, morgan, and the entire OL outside of gross if i remember correctly were on the team prior to 2002.
