This is the kind of performance that got Lester cut from the final 53 last season...wow, the exact opposite of a gamer so far. That said, loving being at the game, great atmosphere. Funniest thing I noticed, all "split fanbase couples", and I mean all of them, the girl is wearing a Newton jersey, guy is wearing Brady. I think this says a lot for an old saying about when you go black...
Right or wrong, Opposing fanbases will troll famous players in attempts to get in their head, it's the same way I expect the good ole "Sir Cameron Newton: Leader of Men, Lover of Puppies...Esquire" crap. For Better or worse, it's part of the life of being a public figure. Corey Brown has hit it early enough in his career that he might actually be able to change it before it's stuck.
Edit: HAHAHAAHA Auto-Correct for Cam Newton with an S might be the greatest thing I've ever seen. Bravo mods.
Wait....These people know our head coach is Hispanic right? Also...the NFL wants a more diverse audience and to bring Central America into the fold, and what better organization to do that with the only active (and third ever) Hispanic head coach. Lastly...they do know that on the interwebs, people can watch videos, read articles, or see cat gifs anywhere in the world, and some of them don't speak "Merican"
Im all down with assimilation to become an American, we speak English here, but even when people learn English, they may prefer to get their information in a language that was their birth language so they understand it better. Seriously, this makes me more disappointed than seeing a new thread started by panthersunited...
IMO, I already gave no legitimacy to your opinions for obvious reasons...but somehow I find myself thinking EVEN less of them now. Jesus christ, Matty Flaccid has been good because of his weapons and nothing to do with him. If you gave John Madden Roddy White and Julio Jones he'd throw for 4,000...hell, if you gave Frank Caliendo pretending to be John Madden that, he'd go for 4,000 too.
I would man, but I can't bring Him. Believe me, one of my dreams I had about having a child was to be able to bring him to a game, but I've tried to multiple times(I've tried bringing him to my alma maters games back home twice, and then tried a highschool game), and every time I have to leave no more than a quarter into the game because he has sensory issues. He gets scared and cries when things get too loud, and he would burst into tears any time the band would play, so I know the pro game would be even worse on him. He is however a panthers fan and I have visual proof...
He gets excited and runs around in circles when the panthers play, this is probably the best picture he ever took because he doesn't usually ever make eye contact and getting him to look at a camera is like pulling teeth.
I moved here from my home and family in Louisiana a year and a half ago with my wife and special needs son (5 years old with autism) and because of medical debt and being able to only have a single income (because my wife has to spend more time on him because of his special needs) I don't generally have money to actually go to games, although I was able to bargain shop and go see us play the Bucs last year at about 20$, and my grandmother bought me a playoff ticket for christmas. I'd really love a chance to catch the game.
Our starting 5 are as good as we've had in a long time, then you add a solid backup with Remmers who can play all posititions, and that means a rotation will keep everyone fresher longer. The key to the season lies with the o-line and stewart.
I would be ok with keeping him, but at this point, I want to see Ward and Wegher out earlier in a preseason game, if they perform, then it's time to move on from Tugboat. Here is the easy way I think about it, if we cut Tolbert, will he get picked up? I don't think he would honestly. Right now, guys like Pierre Thomas, Knowshon Moreno, Ray Rice, and Steven Jackson are on the market with very little interest, so why would someone pick him up after he's missed all their training camp and coming off an injury plagued year? Then you look at the replacement, would Wegher get picked up? I have zero doubt, our options are keep him on the roster, or lose him for good because of his performances +appearance on "Undrafted", teams know who he is. Would Lee get picked up? I'm not sure, I know todays NFL is a very pass happy league, so someone like Lee is a bit of a dinosaur in retrospect. That said, all teams need their big pkg and because of his age and his ability as a blocker, I could see someone like a Pitt or Baltimore picking him up. Bottom line to me, will those cap savings be used on bringing in a receiver? Thats cool, I'm on board with that. The other option is that those cap savings can go towards Luke's contract and keep us more competitive down the line. Also, I'm good with that. I think I know where Gettleman falls in this discussion, the key is getting Rivera on board or just having Nipple Shorts go rogue.
Kelvin did accrue a decent amount of his stats in garbage time, but he did open up things for the other receivers which was big. Think of it like this, remember when Steve Smith got injured in 2013 and we had Donald Lafell as our #1. Well, he looked like crap. Why? Because instead of getting a teams #2 corner, he was pressed at the line and forced to play in a role he couldn't handle. Brown just got tried out in that role and he dropped a log, next man to get a shot at it will be Funchess, hopefully someone can step up and take command of that role.
I think that group can and will win. I don't like Cotchery, but I would keep him over Byrd at this point because with KB gone, his presence is necessary for Funchess's sake. The other reason is I feel we'll be able to move Byrd to the PS, I'm not sure anymore about Ward, and I'd almost guarantee that Wegher doesn't make it to our PS without getting gobbled up given his preseason performance and spotlight on the show undrafted. We have no way to hide him, Wegher HAS to be on our 53 if we want to keep him.
