Lots of good points in this thread. I feel Gettleman has done a good job of building based on cams abilities and defficiencies. Tried to improve o line giving Cam the chance to be physical, while drafting receivers to cover Cams tendency to over throw. All while sticking to Carolinas strong Defensive philosophy.
Save enough for two months rent (hit craigslist for rooms/small apts), pack a backpack and duffle bag, and finally buy a one way bus ticket. I cook so i've always been able to find work. The internet has made travelling easy. Once your set up community colleges are a dime a dozen.
With that said, I often wish I'd went the sevice route.
I enjoy Jamey Johnson. But yeah, most modern country sounds like pop. I listened to the Steven Tyler song the other day. I must admit I thought it sucked. I was a big fan of Aerosmith, but maybe it's time for him to put down the mic and hang up his scarfs.
Palace Cafe on Canal St. I also enjoy Frenchmen Street. It is kinda like a local's Bourbon Street. Magazine Street has some great boutiques, bars and food. Couple of my favorite pizza joints are here. City park is also beautiful and they have a cool Arts Museum and Sculpture Garden. Autobahn park has the zoo, aquarium at the end of Canal, and numerous cemeteries. Don't act like a douche, have fun, and be safe.
