you're right... completely imaginary and fabricated. I made it up myself because I detest Dave Gettleman. You got me. Only... http://espn.go.com/blog/carolina-panthers/post/_/id/14493/panthers-gm-dave-gettleman-on-de-position-michael-oher-kelvin-benjamin
So yeah, you might want to stop now, or just come up with another ill-fated decoy of an argument to avoid discussing the actual concern expressed in the OP.
Never said any of that. I've repeatedly used the word "neglect," when referring to our lack of attention to Cam's weapons. WHOOOOOOOA!!! EXPONENTIAL HYPERBOLE OVERLOADDDDDD!!! I couldn't have picked a more inflammatory and derogatory term!
Short contracts, reasonable on guys with better upside and greater past production than anyone on our roster outside of KB and Funchess is "throwing money" away? And if all of those guys on that list are mediocre, you should go ahead and get padded up and try out because what we have must be completely off the radar in terms of horrible adjectives to designate them with. I just disproved your idea that they were unaffordable. So often, your go to is to default to what management says or does because they are apparently infallible and I and all others should keep our dissenting opinions to ourselves because we aren't in the football business... And yet, I'm to take your opinion on what comprises a good WR as gospel? LOL. See how this works?
Why does it matter who said it? It is accepted as part of the huddle vernacular for a reason. Either it has been said by people who vehemently defend everything Gettleman does, or it was said by someone on our team's staff at some point. IIRC, Gettleman or Rivera said it themselves in a presser and it carried over onto the huddle... And if it didn't, then as I said, someone here who blindly supports everything our front office does (good and bad) said it in their defense while talking out of their ass. Here's an idea... Google it, and you tell me.
Who is saying that? Hyperbole, yet again to try and negate valid points of concern. There is a huge difference between forcing your QB to suffer with scrubs masquerading as WRs and going out and signing every fuging possible WR on the market. There is a happy medium despite what the huddle mass dichotomies try to dictate, because people can't intelligently express themselves or debate without attempting to disrespect, dismiss them altogether, or infer they're illogical and/or an idiot because you don't agree with them... I guess it's just easier to be lazy though.
Quick question: How many of these guys have a cap hit greater than 3.5 mil for 2015? Torrey Smith Jeremy Maclin Michael Crabtree Greg Jennings Cecil Shorts Miles Austin Stevie Johnson Dwayne Harris Hakeem Nicks Denarious Moore Brandon Tate Darius Heyward-Bey ... I'll help you out... Quick Tip: ONE. One of them will make over 3.5 mil this season, and it's Torrey Smith, at a whopping 3.6 mil. But, it's cool, I really enjoy fables of the impossible.
Well, if expecting my team to be a perennial contender and calling out an obvious weakness is being silly, then so be it. I'll wear that mantle proudly. I want my team to be great. And no, you don't win games by blowouts every time out, but the more efficient you are offensively, the more games you win. Law of averages would dictate you're not going to score TDs every possession, but again, tonight was more of the same problem we had last season. You settle for enough scoreless stalled drives and field goals instead of TDs, and you lose games. As incredible as our defense was tonight, and as talented as our QB is, no one in their right mind would approve of walking away from that first half down to the opposition with only six points to show for your efforts.
Nice hyperbole there. I didn't see anyone saying we would go 0-16. But, as was evident last season, we will lose more than we should if the problem isn't addressed, which us why I brought it up. Secondly, being happy because you "hung" with a world champion is for sugar chugging Losers. Everyone gets a trophy and you get to ride your own unicorn home to the rainbow lollipop castle when the game is over. I say this with all due respect, but people wonder why our fanbase isn't more rabid and unwavering in their support? Your outlook on being satisfied with "hanging" with a team that puts their pants on the same way every other team does is exhibit A.
