    Pacman Jones fight at airport(video)

    Dude has a glass jaw. Nothing even landed remotely solidly and he went down like a sack of potatoes.

    Cam IS on the hot seat!

    I’d say it’s safe to say Winston is on the hot seat. He’s put himself in a precarious spot with the league office and brought a lot of negative publicity to the Bucs. His rookie contract is also coming to an end. Are they willing to ink that guy to a big new contract making him the face of the franchise and basically hooking the organization to that wagon? It wouldn’t surprise me a bit if they went QB early in the draft next year.

    Cam IS on the hot seat!

    I think we have to let Cam be Cam and that means letting him run. I’d be all for fewer called runs though. When I say Cam doesn’t run enough I’m specifically talking about scrambling. Cam rarely scrambles anymore and it leads to more sacks because he’s buying time to try to throw. I don’t want him to be a one read and bolt QB like Vick was, but three reads and bolt might be a good idea especially if the OL isn’t any better.

    Cam IS on the hot seat!

    I honestly think Cam is too hellbent on actually passing the ball when we run passing plays. Cam very rarely scrambles these days except for trying to buy time to throw. The vast majority of his rushing yardage comes on called runs. If he’d actually scramble more often it would make him harder to blitz. Teams blitz us relentlessly because they know Cam will hold onto the ball trying to buy time to find a receiver instead of bailing and running.

    Bad review for an old friend

    The run blocking definitely didn't do him or CMC any favors last year, that's for sure. But even on the occasion where there would be a good hole, Stew just no longer had the burst to get through it.

    Bad review for an old friend

    Stew was a good RB for us when healthy but anyone who watched him last year in particular can’t be at all surprised by this report. No clue what Gettleman was thinking.
  7. Makes sense. We all know Cam is as good as anyone when he’s on, but when he’s off he can look really bad. Fortunately, he has a lot more good games than bad and while every player is going to inevitably have some subpar games helping Cam he more consistent will definitely help the Panthers. I don’t think that’s entirely on Cam either. Norv is experienced enough and smart enough to realize every QB is going to have some off games and it’s up to him to adjust the offense when Cam is having an inevitable off game.

    Panthers TC Preview...NFL.com

    Secondary, OL, and WR are definitely the units I'll be watching most closely in TC, probably in that order.

    JR Statue to remain

    I'm shocked the NFL allowed that to be in the contract. I wonder what the penalty is for breaking it? I wonder if it would be required to replace it if it happened to come down as an act of vandalism? There's gotta be a way around that clause.

    Official Tepper Presser Thread

    Those are unbelievably awful. That's also Carolina Blue, not Panthers blue.
  11. The hot seat doesn't necessarily make people better but it usually does make them more aggressive. It just so happens that Ron seems to be a better coach when he's being aggressive. It's aggressive Marty Hurney that scares the poo out of me.

    Donte Jackson just stepped in poo

    Dick move. He deserves the poo he's going to catch.

    The Richardson Rule

    The creepiness factor of this thread is entering "old man Jerry Richardson at the office" levels.
  14. Not good ones. I definitely grew up with some guys who it certainly seemed like that was the case for them. It was sad to see some people who I knew to have a good heart ultimately go down bad roads. None of them ended up in good places.
  15. I wish it was true because Wilson really does seem like he's putting on an act a lot of times, but we have some mutual friends who he went to high school with. Everyone I know who actually knows the guy says he's as genuine as they come.
  16. I think any kid who needs an athlete or celebrity who is not actively involved in his or her life to be their primary male role model isn't in the best of situations. I'm sure plenty of kids are in that situation and plenty of them will come out of it just fine, but that doesn't make it a good one.
  17. It's exactly what makes my post valid. I can't help that you're getting overly emotional about this and taking it as a direct attack on you. That was never the intention.
  18. Which part didn't you understand? He summed it up pretty well and then you slipped right back into your same fallacy.
  19. Turner has to play up to his contract. He didn't last year. Like I said, I think Turner has the higher ceiling, but I really hope we aren't looking back in a few years realizing we re-signed the wrong OG.
  20. It's a pretty strong condemnation of an OC (Shula) that our offense ALWAYS ran better when we picked up the pace in the two minute drill allowing for minimal OC involvement. We always looked better playing fast with Cam controlling the plays at the LOS.
  21. Just reminding you of the post that you were directly replying to via quote.
  22. My point is Vick checks all the aforementioned boxes. That post wasn't about whether or not a football player CAN be a good role model. It was about the fact that just because a guy is a good football player doesn't automatically make him a good role model.
  23. I guess you think Michael Vick is a stellar role model?
  24. We're still crying about a TE who is going to miss the entire upcoming season with a torn ACL?
