  1. I'm no football genius here, but I think that anytime we can put KB and Ginn on the same side of a play is going to be deadly. Now a defense will have to respect Ginn's deep speed (10TDs on 44 catches, hello!) but pick to contain him with a S or crash down on KB working the intermediate. Oh yeah, 88 will be out there too. And Tolbert, Stewart, or maybe Philly or Funchess, or another TE... If they roll coverage to KB/Ginn, then that opens things up on the other side or middle of the field. Then again, I know you smart guys will point out the holes in my logic =)
  2. Preacher starts tonight

    I watched it last night, and I'm loving it! Right balance of humor and drama. Like the characters, will keep watching and supporting!
  3. -Game of Thrones-HBO-

    I have a feeling Young Griff is left off because his plot goes no where. That's what I was thinking reading the last book. I was like "WTF is going on with this guy?" I already had the thoughts that Jon Snow wasn't going to die, and that he was too important, and of course Danny and Tyrion. I think there are enough patterns in the snow to see that the Young Griff story line is going to get squashed.
  4. HVAC question

    Thank you for all of your input! It has been extremely helpful to verify what my feelings were as we as those of other HVAC companies. We're not going to set our buyer up for a fast failure and we're not going to put in a new unit. Our agent said they had not heard great things about this inspector. They can take the system as it has been maintained by the company that installed it for the past decade. Or if they want to back out, they better hurry becuase by Friday their due diligence ends!
  5. HVAC question

    So we are selling our home, it's 10 years old. Our buyers inspector came in last week and they recommended removing the rust from the ends of the AC coils. The blades are clean and clear, but the ends of the coils are rusty. Our AC tech (who installed the unit in the home 10 years ago) said he wouldn't touch it. Scrapping the rust off would more than likely cause the coils to fail sooner rather than later. Has anyone ever done that? All the HVAC folks I've spoken to think it's a bad idea. For a 10 year old system, as long as it's working (which it is quite well), and the blades are clean, there's not a whole lot they can do.
  6. Huddle was down for an hour this morning.

    I won't lie...when I went to the huddle, and it wasn't there....I panicked a bit...
  7. Carson Palmer wants some

    This is something that all athletes say. Maybe they will come out and beat us down in the regular season. See'em in the playoffs. But I think the Super Bowl loss is going to motivate the heck out of the Panthers. They are going to come out hot and ready to prove a point. AZ is going to have to figure out how to protect Palmer when we are coming in hot from the middle of their line, and we might have some pass rush surprises this year too.

    I guess we'll see who wins the game of thrones? My guess, no one...or it's simply the last person not dead...
  9. Antonio Cromartie wants to come to Carolina

    The better question is why is he still out there? There are lot of teams who need corners, yet he's still chilling. That's telling!
  10. Panthers Release Boykin

    Man, I love the conspiracy theories! Its getting rather Tenderbox-like in here! I would think that there is something beyond his football acumen at play here. I'm curious as to what he did to not even see the practice field. There's no way not even the most egotistical GM (which many of you think is Gettleman) cuts guys so he can keep camp bodies. Unless there are non-football factors.
  11. Panthers Release Boykin

    Interesting. Very interesting. Before we rush to judgement, let's see if any of those teams are still looking at him. Dave must feel pretty good about his nickle corner.
  12. Someone else said it, but I'd like to reiterate that Gentleman is building a great roster. So many young guys filling out the bottom of the roster. That's one of the things they said about Seattle. They did a great job creating the competitive bottom 3rd of the roster to push the top. Man, what a great time to be a Panther fan!
  13. This is an interesting prediction. I think most sports writers are counting on Cam's success to disappear. That there is no way this Carolina team can be more than a flash in the pan. So, I think it's as simple as some folks trying to pay their bills. Gotta get those clicks!
  14. Vernon Butler signs with Panthers

    But I thought Gettleman made no one want to play for him after Josh Norman's comments? -The Huddle These guys were all going to get signed. Since the new CBA, this is all super easy. It's probably just getting guys where they need to be to sign the papers.
  15. Norman "Panthers aren't family enough"

    For all the love we had for Norman, he has said some weird things over the years. Let's be honest there. This is Norman speaking his mind. He's a cool, smart dude, but he sometimes goes off the deep end. It's just his personality. At the end of the day, he wanted more money, and he got a truck load of it. We wanted him, but we weren't going to give him that much. We wanted 12, he wanted 15. When it became apparent that there would not be a long term contract Gettleman was comfortable with, he gave Josh the freedom to get the money he wanted. Everyone win. Now if I'm a FA, do I sign up just to play with Josh Norman? I mean, we've heard a lot of the top corners give Josh a hard time about being the best "zone" corner in the league, but not being the best man-to-man kind of player. But what does everyone say about Luke, TD, Cam, Olsen? If I signed low to play in Carolina, losing Josh stinks, but it's not like I'm going to quit doing my job. This is still a SB team until we lay an egg. Let's not forget, these guys aren't high school kids who get into fights over snapchat. These are testosterone filled alpha males who are in the .001% of genetically gifted men. They have egos and pride to match. They want to perform and win, then get paid. Boykin is probably betting on a Mike Mitchell effect. Make splash plays on a top D for a year, then translate that into an overmarket contract with enough money to live like a king for the rest of your life. Josh Norman didn't make Mike Mitchell a Free Agent lottery winner. The team did.
