  1. Rapoport: Panthers Looking at Quarterbacks

    so we're cutting and trading Cam??? 4th Round rookie QB SB??? ;)
  2. Cam makes another wish come true.

    Man, I watched the whole video. Good stuff. There are a lot of guys who do good stuff like this in the world. But I still think that stuff like this is so cool! I love seeing how engaged Cam is with kids. Man, just really good stuff!
  3. I bet his family wanted him to tow the line a little bit more because Cam does get folks everywhere taking shots at him. Again, I can understand that. It would be so much easier to be as loved as Payton Manning was..I mean he practically pooed gold. How many people spewed the hate at Mannings way? His image even survived the whole HGH and 90s sex scandle.
  4. I don't like that he came out and said anything. Personally, I'd rather him stick to his guns as the Nicest Villan in the NFL. He's cocky, rubs it in your face a bit, an entertainer/icon type. The anti-Brady/Manning. Doesn't like losing. Those are all endearing to me. That's MY QB. He's the best player on the field at all times. To me, the apology is in a way going back on that persona. You can't really be both, in my opinion. The funny thing is that the entire NFL, not limited to the Broncos, have gone out of their way to poo on Cam. Don't open it up with apologies. Double down in this case. Continue to dab in their heads. As a rational adult, I get why he wanted to do that. But as a fan, I was OK with him being a sore loser of the Super Bowl. More fuel for next year. Or he could be transitioning his image a bit too. Sometimes, Cam's hard to read (like his posting...OMFG!)
  5. The DE Position

    Here's a thought on it. Guys you draft "have" to be, or will become, better than those guys on your roster. I think as Gettleman looks at players, he's constantly debating them versus what he already has. While it's easy for the media to say what they want, like why we didn't draft Dodd or someone, Gettleman has done a great job of roster building his way. It could be that there wasn't a huge difference between these late first guys and 4th rounders in their evaluation. And that our guys have the traits to be better than those guys. I don't know, I'm full of it!
  6. We've done a pretty good job of getting DL guys during the Gettleman era. I'm cool with it =) I can't wait for everyone to start picking the Saints, Falcons and Bucs because they picked the easiest watercooler picks!
  7. I'm not sure there are many real fans of the team who hope Norman fails. The article simply points out the holes in Norman's game that he hasn't been able to close up (or simply hasn't needed to). In our zone game, Norman was the man. But if he's asked to be a bump and run, man up guy, that doesn't really play to his strengths. Norman is a really good player, he was great for us. It's fair to say that Washington is going to have to use him properly to get value out of their investment. If they line him up 1 on 1 all game, Norman is going to have a long game because he was never asked to do that for us. I hope he does well, I really do.
  8. Cam shirtless

    Man, I feel bad about my beer belly...Not really!
  9. Josh Norman agrees to terms with Redskins...

    While it sucks to lose Josh, I understand why we let him go. We would never give him $50 million guaranteed, ever. I'm glad he got paid. December 19th should be interesting. So will his first three games.
  10. Interesting...that sheds some serious light on things for me!
  11. Maybe? Stewie? I just did some internet butt-talking =)
  12. I get why Deangelo is still talking about the Panthers. He lives in Charlotte. I saw him at IKEA a few weeks ago. He's also still very close with his teammates. As a player, he's going to side with the players. He doesn't care about the business of running a football team because his business is to be a good player. He can throw the shade (what a dumb term BTW) all he wants. He can insinuate all he wants. He isn't a Panther, he's bitter about that. He doesn't like Gettleman after the coddling of Marty Hurney. Three straight NFC South Championships, NFC Championship, and being the envy of the NFL say all that need to be said.
  13. today's pre-draft presser

    So.....we're not forfeiting the season then? I mean, we let go of Josh, we can't play can we? Jokes aside, it was a good presser, and always a great job by the Captain to fill us in. My hope is that we are able to add the best players and continue to get better. While we did OK in the sack numbers, I'd like to see us continue to add pressure. Getting some coverage and passrush will be helpful.
  14. But we haz all the moneyz? Why not sign ALL the CBz??? Very rational and well thought out point by Jeremy (again!), which folks will still ignore. I will admit, the Chicken Littles are kind of fun to watch =)
  15. The idea is that there is an expectation of some kind of "thanks for the good games" from teammates. You saw that when Smith was released, and Deangelo. Now that's not to say Josh wasn't a well liked teammate. But it is a little telling. It's like announcing you're retirement and everyone going "meh." You just tend to hear a little more chatter about these kinds of things, so I guess it is a little odd.
