  1. That garbage was sixth in the league as far as sacks go last season. The team had 44 total sacks on the season. Five more sacks throughout the season, which equates to .333 sacks per game difference, and the Panthers would have been tied for second. The Panthers averaged 2.75 sacks per game. The league leader, Denver with 52, averaged exactly .5 sacks more per game. How exactly is that garbage?
  2. Making a Murderer (spoilers inside)

    Great point. HUGE difference between guilty and innocent. That difference is called Not Guilty.
  3. Rank your Top5 sports team you root for

    1. Alabama Football 2. Carolina Panthers 3. Cleveland Indians 4. Charlotte Hornets That's about it for the teams I actively root for. I grew up close to Charlotte and attended grad school at Bama. Became an Indians fan after watching Major League as a young kid, and my wife is actually from Akron, OH, which has strengthened my fanaticism. Obviously, I root for any US team, whether it be the Olympics, the World Cup, or whatever.
  4. Five teams with insane amounts of Cap space

    The flip side of this "cap space" discussion is that those teams have all the cap space because they have, for the most part, failed miserably in drafting quality NFL players. John Clayton wrote a recent article about this. Essentially, because they have failed to draft quality players, they have not had to use cap space to retain those non-existent quality players.
  5. Official Panthers - Broncos Superbowl Gameday Thread

    Know how you know the Super Bowl coverage starts too early? CBS runs a five minute segment on the Bills fictitiously winning the four straight Super Bowls they lost 20+ years ago.
  6. He's talking about the Seahawks internal clock, I'd imagine. If they had an 0730 EST wake-up, it would be equivalent to an 0430 PST wake-up.
  7. Haven't seen Stewart in a while? Have I just missed him, or is he injured?
  8. Making a Murderer (spoilers inside)

    I am currently on my second assignment as a criminal defense attorney after also having served as one of the Air Force's 17 senior prosecutors. My wife and I watched Making A Murderer, and I simply do not know how Avery was convicted. I left the above part of your quote there, because I wanted to address the notion in it. You are absolutely right that a person does not have to prove his or her innocence. Under our Constitution, a person is presumed innocent, and that presumption is overcome only when the Government proves his or her guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, which brings me to my second point. A person is not required to prove reasonable doubt in any way, shape, or form. If I felt confident that the facts of a case contained holes, I could not say a single thing during the evidence portion of a court-martial, and my client could still be acquitted. It is always, always the Government's job to do the proving, and in each case, that is supposed to include proving away any and every real possibility of non guilt raised by the evidence. Unfortunately, I think our justice system is at the point where the fact finders begin thinking the Accused probably did it before they ever hear one iota of evidence simply based on the fact that he or she is in a courtroom. Sad.
  9. Official Panthers - Giants Gameday Thread

    The last few games (except the Flacons game) have seemed like college rivalry games for the Panthers. What I mean by that is this: the opposing team is simply playing off of emotion and plays very well initially. However, as we have seen, that emotion is not enough to overcome a superior team. The Panthers have done a fantastic job waiting out that emotion and, more times than not, stripping the emotion away through a big play or two.
  10. Panthers grooming future GM?

    I don't know if Brandon would do that, seeing that he is a local boy. I went to high school with him in Stanly County. he has stayed with the Panthers this long why not wait it out for the GM job if that is what is next for him? Although he may not have exclusive scouting experience, I have no doubt he has learned the ropes in that regard. He was a sports junkie growing up. He has been with the Panthers for years and worked his way up through the ranks. Plus, he has learned some ways not to do things from Hurney and ways to do things from Gettleman. I would be fine with Brandon taking over after Gettleman and would be extremely happy for a former classmate.
  11. NFL says Pats guilty, and Brady knew

    I had no idea of what Florio wrote. I just deal with all these burdens of proof on a day-to-day basis in my job. Thought the ones making a big deal of the word "probable" we're just missing the point.
  12. NFL says Pats guilty, and Brady knew

    It is actually quite easy to see if you read the word in context of how it is used in the report. Investigations, whether they are criminal in nature or internal to an organization, require a burden of proof to either substantiate or unsubstantiate the claims. By using that language in the report, the investigator was merely saying, "The burden has been met." But you all can keep your panties in a was if you'd like.
  13. NFL says Pats guilty, and Brady knew

    Everyone upset about the word "probable" should read the word in context. The word describes the burden of proof used during the investigation, which sounds to be proof by a preponderance of the evidence. That is a legal standard much lower than proof beyond a reasonable doubt, and it essentially means "the greater probability of the evidence," i.e. more probable than not.
  14. The Azores

    Flown through and spent the night several times. Windy as all heck from what I remember. Cool feel to the area though.
  15. Owe you some rep, thanks for the info on the Manning case. BTW, I love it when Deac is corrected on military matters. He thinks he knows it all since he swabbed the poopdecks. :)
