  1. I guess they do this all the time, but it's weird to have Nantz's call combined with a Panther game he didn't announce (SF).
  2. Cancer Patient Hopes to Meet Panther

    I wanted to give one more update to this thread that I just found out today. Although no Panthers could make it up to Salisbury before Mike passed, Coach Rivera and KB did both Skype with him. I've seen a video of it, and he was truly moved by it. So, kudos to Ron and Kelvin for this.

    Update on this for anyone interested: Mike passed away on Saturday.
  4. There are only 6 intradivision games.
  5. The Mike Shula Statistical Anomaly

    The sad part is that the fact that he's been a good bit better here (compared to his earlier stops) makes you wonder how much better we could have been with a real OC.

    This is the brother-in-law of one of my co-workers, so I was going to post this when I had a chance. I'm glad to see that someone already did. I'm hoping word of this will get back to the team and someone will be able to make a trip up to Salisbury to make this happen.
  7. I would say yes, but a great defense gets you turnovers to offset offensive ineptitude, and we didn't get any yesterday. We had a couple the first week, though, so we'll have to see what the future holds there. Two games is a little too early to make that call. If we can constantly win the turnover battle and keep shutting teams down far below their normal production, then I could say that this is the best Panthers D ever.
  8. There's no way the play clock thing would fly with the NFL, but that's a creative idea. As for the PA guy thing, the first time he announces it to the crowd and it ends up not being a first down, then that would be the end of that. There's a reason they wait for the official announcement first.
  9. The stadium was pretty quiet yesterday

    Yeah - those aren't PSL seats, so any opposing fans with a sizable fanbase in the area buy those up once they go on sale.
  10. Township Grille. They had great wings, especially back in the day before it became vogue for every sports bar to have them. I miss that place.
  11. Warning: Graphic content

    By the rule book, the refs probably did the right thing: "Officials are to blow the play dead as soon as the quarterback is clearly in the grasp and control of any tackler, and his safety is in jeopardy." The problem is that the rules are a moving target that vary by QB. That rule is designed for an immobile QB like Hoyer. They know that Hoyer is a sitting duck, so once it was obvious he wasn't going anywhere, they blew the play dead once Star passed him off to Pep because they knew he didn't have a chance at making any kind of play. They probably wouldn't blow that same play dead so soon for Cam, but that's also because they know that he has a better chance of escaping and making a play. They err on the side of waiting to see if he can get out of a situation like that. It's a double-edged sword because we want him to be protected, but we also want him to have the opportunity to escape the pocket.

    Honestly, if it had been an immediate strip of the ball, then it would have been. I think being stopped by Star and then having Pep coming in to clean up means they were going to blow the whistle quickly and call Hoyer in the grasp of the defender, which seems like the right call by the rulebook. It's not quite the same as another player in the situation, but a QB is going to be called in the grasp and the whistle blown much more quickly.
  13. 16 million that probably keeps them safe from the cap floor. Both teams got what they wanted out of that trade.
  14. I'm kind of impressed that Butker was up around the 25 yard line. Do kickers normally get that far up the field?
