  1. NFL Owner Drama: Jerry Richardson a Bully?

    Maybe he didn't want his kids to ruin his NFL franchise. I don't pretend to know the inner workings of the organization or Richardson, but IMO an owner like Jerry Jones is business above anything else. Our Jerry seems to care a little more about character when it comes to who plays for the Panthers, so I'd have to give him the benefit of the doubt.
  2. Carolina Panthers Top 3 Offseason Priorities

    The thing is, the roster spot wasn't wasted. Like other marginal active guys who saw little playing time at their position, Wegher and others did have value on special teams. And what players on some team's practice squad would you have put on the roster in place of Wegher, or other bottom roster guys, that WOULD have seen significant playing time? Don't forget we weren't yet out of the salary cap hole that had been dug, and Gman's philosophy is to build a team that can sustain, vs. throwing all your money at this season or next season. It's a good bet that our overall talent level on the 53 will improve for next season though.
  3. He and some others are the result of a team pulling itself out of 'cap strapped mode'. You fill the roster the best you can with the dollars you have, then when you're richer, you can have nicer things (in this case, better players). Some of our bottom of the roster guys may be some other team's filler material next season, or maybe out of the NFL entirely until injuries hit some team hard (see McClain, Finnegan).
  4. Which jersey to buy my mom?

    Gotta go with Davis. He's old, like your mom. Just kidding, but yeah, #58.
  5. Gameday Menu Superbowl Edition

    Bronco burgers with extra salt.

    Definitely the last LombardiLESS pie party! No doubts allowed today.
  7. Yeah let's leave real life devastation out of it. 
  8. Back then Manning was tearing it up instead of getting torn up, and Cam was only a shadow of his current self.
  9. In these parts we're just looking for Cam comments.

  11. Deangelo Williams picks....

    And the Panthers win the 2015 'Release the right running back' award. 
  12. Trying to pump myself up for this game

    My thoughts exactly. Your dad wouldn't approve of you canceling the trip or not enjoying the experience. 
  13. I never felt like we had a horrible receiving corps without KB. Aside from from our solid gold TE, we had weapons for the short and long passing game. Ginn doesn't have the best hands, and neither does Brown, but when they catch the ball there's the chance they can go all the way every time if they get a little running room. I had faith that Funchess would catch up and help out, and I knew that Cotchery was clutch in the short game. What kind of help did we have for Smith for most of his Panther career, other than Moose? Not much. We had one draft bust after another, and unlike Gettleman, nobody brought in any veteran pieces to fit the puzzle.
  14. What Broncos Fans Are Saying

    And that never happens to us on other boards. I never go to forums for other teams because I don't troll and have no interest in debating opposing fans. Fandom is usually an emotional thing and the knee jerk reaction of 'WTF are you doing on our forum?' isn't something I want to fight right off the bat.  If you want to post here without trolling you'll get some good, civil responses. If you want to get your back up at every stone thrown your way because you're in enemy territory, then your skin is too thin for posting on other team sites, and your expectations are unreasonable. 
  15. Nobody who isn't totally ignorant. It was just poking fun at the perception of stoic, studying Manning vs. fun loving, celebrating Cam.
