  1. I don't get what your point is. Offense was still very good this season.  Nobody is saying they were the reincarnation of the '07 Patriots or anything, but they made a lot of big plays and especially in the second half of the season, played great football. So I guess I'm just confused as to what you want to discuss.  That Shula isn't that good of a OC?  Maybe.  I'd disagree to an extent.  Otherwise though our offense played WAY better than the talent level says they should have.  That is a testament to A) good coaching and B) Cam Newton, not to say the interior OL, Olsen, and Stew don't deserve credit.  They absolutely do.
  2. Kony Ealy

    Short, Lotulelei, Ealy, Kuechly, Davis, Thompson, Norman on defense next year... God, I can't wait.  This Super Bowl loss hurts so much but I can't help but be so excited for our future.  We're so talented and young.  It's going to be a dog fight between us and the Seahawks, probably the Packers too because of Aaron Rodgers.
  3. Kony Ealy

    While I am still trying to gather my thoughts and emotions about the game tonight... this man deserves his own thread.  What an absolutely beast performance by him today.  Defense as a whole, including Kuechly and Norman, were outstanding but Ealy was the star. He's played so well all season long and he is one of the reasons why we should be optimistic for next season.  Him, Short, and Lotulelei are going to form one hell of a defensive line.
  4. I have faith in my team, but I would be lying if I said I wasn't nervous as hell.    
  5. Denver Sports Radio/Cam PR Person

    Cam only came across as bored and tired when he was being asked silly, repetitive questions. When reporters asked him original stuff, he was the same, happy Cam we're used to seeing.  My favorite question was probably when the Mexican reporter brought up Blinn College and asked him how the experience was when he played Mexico City's top team.  You could tell Cam was legitimately interested by the question and he went in-depth with his response.
  6. How much more are they going to talk about Peyton Manning on NFL Network? The wait to the game has been brutal.  Only 6 hours and 20 minutes left.
  7. Next week is gonna be nuts

    I think I'll be able to handle the wait well for most of next week.  I'm actually really looking forward to media day and all the attention.  We have some really entertaining guys on the team so there should be a ton of fantastic material. What will really begin to test my able to focus on anything else in life will be once 12am hits and it becomes Sunday.  The wait from that point is going to be unreal.  I'm not sure I'll be able to handle it.
  8. What is our gameplan with T.D.

    He'll probably see a tad less snaps than usual but I don't think we're going to limit him in any specific way.  If we did though, it'd probably be to take him off the field for running downs where he might have to shed a block.  Also might see him blitzing less.
  9. Conan O'Brien and the Superbowl

    Cam would be a great choice but I don't think he'd agree to do it. It'd probably be Norman and Miller, if they were to do something like this again.
  10. Harper wouldn't even get consideration for the Saints Hall of Fame.
  11. todays practice tweets: everyone back

    I probably missed it.  Why has Short been limited?
  12. Cam...

    Didn't Cam say he was pushing close to 280 at the end of his rookie year or something? I remember him saying it in a press conference or whatever when talking about how he ate junk food for meetings. I think he's at least 260.
  13. Cool Jon Beason article

      I always loved that video.  It's unfortunate he couldn't stay healthy, his '09 season is one of my favorites from a Panthers player on defense and he always seemed like a good, well respected guy.
  14. Jared Allen will be a Hall of Famer. Barring injury, I would be SHOCKED if Luke Kuechly didn't make the Hall of Fame. I think Cam Newton will be a Hall of Famer.  I wouldn't necessarily be (as) shocked if he didn't (not as much as I would be with Kuechly, who is the best middle linebacker the league has seen since prime Ray Lewis), but I think he will.  If we win the Super Bowl, Cam Newton will become a SUPERSTAR for the NFL. Then I guess Ryan Kalil has a glimmer of hope.  5x Pro Bowler and 2x First-Team All-Pro and is only 30 years old so he could have about 3-4 years left of top-tier play in him, but like I said the Pro Football Hall of Fame is really hard to get into.  I definitely wouldn't bank on it, his chances are slim.  But it's possible. Greg Olsen doesn't have a chance either unless he has one heck of a finish to his career.   Far too early to speculate on other guys like Turner, Short, etc.
  15. I don't think you guys understand how hard getting into the Hall of Fame is. This coming from a huge TD fan who thinks it would be a disgrace if he isn't inducted into our Hall of Honor when he retires: Thomas Davis has no chance in hell at making the Hall of Fame.
