The Blair witch project was utter crap to me. I didn't see it in theaters but I saw it when I was about 17 at a friend's house. Boring. As. Hell. Nothing happens for 90 minutes and I'm supposed to poo my pants? Psh. Jaws is just a great movie that instills a sense of dread and anticipation because you don't see the damn shark until towards the end of the movie. You see things from the shark's perspective, hear that iconic music, and then see a fin. It's what you don't see that makes it scary. Your mind fills in the blanks and makes things scary for you. The original Saw was a great mind fug of a horror movie, and that twist ending. The sequels are all just gore porn, but they don't take away from how awesome the first one was. I'm surprised no one has mentioned Poltergeist yet. That's a classic and killed off half the people that worked on the movie. The Descent is solid and it was filmed in NC. People should check that one out. The Babadook is another good one. More recent, not sure who all has seen it yet.
He's depth at this point. Low round draft pick in two years for him. Not really a bad deal. I don't feel strongly one way or another about the guy. Hope he picks up the playbook and contributes somehow.
And I disagree with you here. After 2008, Hurney sucked at drafting. Trades have to be taken into consideration becuase they impact who you draft. Even without his trades, his drafts are ABYSMAL post 08. Wasting top 100 picks constantly each year does not make him above average. He was definitely below average.
This is true, but there are still a handful of franchises that just have a large fanbase due to prolonged success and "Dynasty" years. Dallas, GB, Pittsburgh, and more recently, NE come to mind. You will find more of those fans than any other team due to the "prestige" and history associated with the franchises. They are (excluding Dallas) perennial playoff teams and well run organizations (again excluding Dallas). Dallas fans are just mouth breathers that don't realize how shittily run their franchise truly is. And they're stupid. But I will say, they are loyal.
What I interpreted from your posts is that you think something "fishy" and "shady" is going on in regards to the relaying of information about Luke's concussion due to lack of information provided to the public and the fact that Luke has been on then off the field on different days during the MEDIA PORTIONS OF PRACTICES. Keep in mind, that is only a small time frame in which journalists get to see what's going on for the day. The team practices more throughout the day - who's to say Luke didn't go out and practice in some way shape or form after the media left? Completely reasonable assumption to make. Just because they don't see it and don't report it doesn't mean it's not happening. People are jumping down your ass not because they can't understand what you're saying, but because you sound like a tinfoil hat wearing conspiracy theorist jumping to conclusions about Luke's impending fate based on a LACK of evidence and not the evidence provided. If it were a more severe concussion, I'm sure they would say "Luke has a severe concussion, he's out until further notice". Instead they're just saying "he hasn't passed protocol, and when he does, he'll play"... which is a completely reasonable statement to make about the dude without assuming the absolute worst while there is no evidence to the contrary. The absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence for Luke.
You were overreacting and being an idiot. It's just football and you have no control over this poo. Luke has a concussion. Those take time to heal. It doesn't matter if it's one week or 10. They have nothing to hide and have no obligation to tell anyone how long he will be out. Let me spell this next part out to people in bold, large font: They don't know how long he'll be out because concussions aren't something to fug with and recovery time varies from person to person far more than an injured leg or arm. The severity of his concussion determines how long he is out not the initial diagnosis. The reason there's a protocol to follow with this BRAIN INJURY is that they can't give a specific timetable like other injuries. That's why every week he sees the doctor again so he can find out if he's healthy enough to resume smashing his face against other people's faces. When he's ready, he'll be back. No sooner no later. Deal with it. I just don't understand why everyone is concerned about being "right" up in this bitch. I've been wrong plenty of times and I've owned up to it. It's not about calling something first to rub it in someones face. All that does is stroke your own ego. Be happy with your life outside the Panthers and you won't have to rely on the idea that you were right about some guy's head injury to get you through the day.
Winston's stats don't bother me. He struggled all game, had 5 turnovers by himself, and they played from behind so they had to pass more. He had to throw the ball 40+ times to get close to 300. He had 4 picks in there as well. Minus his garbage time drive with our backups on the field, he had closer to 200 yards, 1 TD and 4 picks. We owned him. The rushing yards were somewhat concerning but understandable considering we were playing 2 new guys extensively on the DL who might not be familiar with gap responsibilities yet (Delaire specifically, he got an earful from Edwards after the one rushing TD. He might have been out of place). Couple that fact with we didn't have Luke, a guy that can single handed stop a rushing attack, and I'm not that concerned after all. The running game does concern me. It'd be nice to have an established runner take heat off Cam. But we can only hope the O-Line jells and things go smoother the last 3/4 of the season in that regard.
