  1. Sorry. Gettlemens Draft This Year Blows

    As Bill Walsh said. If a player helps your team it doesnt matter when he was drafted.
  2. Current projection: Hillary to win NY

    Sorry its a myth, and nothing but. Similar to those who call John Mccain and Mitt Romney Rino's because they don't follow lock step with the Right of the party. Except that in Hillary's case, its the extreme left she doesn't follow. That is not to say that corporations don't have some influence, they most certainly do. But to say she is a Corparatist (whatever that is) is ludicrous. The reality is that even If Sanders gets elected, he will get nothing done because none of what he wants will get past congress. Small incremental changes are about all that have a chance. Hillary is smart enough to realize that. She found out early in her husbands administration that it doesn't matter what she wants to do, its what can actually be done that matters.
  3. Deangelo Williams throwing shade at Gettleman...

    Of all the players we have cut, the only one that was truly handled poorly was Steve Smith. It seems that Norman was handled in a much more professional and direct manner.
  4. Harriet Tubman

    Fixed it for you. The both want or wanted to break up the big bank, and have smaller ones, and complained about financial elites and social misjustice. They also both believe they can or could accomplish the goal without congressional approval. Oh, and they were both only popular with white people. ;)
  5. Who built Stonehenge?

    Stonehenge has no real purpose, so the government probably built it.
  6. COLA - Charlotte to San Fran

    I vaguely remember a discussion last year in which someone stated that a player gets taxed based on where the game is played, not where they live. If you play a game at Los Angeles, you pay California tax rates, if the game is in Charlotte, you pay NC tax rates. Not sure if that is accurate though. But if it is, it lessens to an extent the impact of going to a California based team.
  7. COLA - Charlotte to San Fran

    While I enjoyed visiting San Francisco, wouldn't think of living there, unless I got a 3-4 hundred percent raise. Not that I am that concerned about the cost of living increase, there are just to many people there, to many crowds, to much traffic etc.... Not that I have anything in particular against SF, I feel the same way about NY or Atlanta or for that matter Charlotte. But it would take a significant amount of money to get me to move to one of these cities. Of course, Josh is younger, so he might enjoy the lifestyle in a place such as SF. But I do think this is more about ego and him wanted to be recognized as the best more than it is about money.
  8. Josh's response to the AP

    Unless its Chicago or Jacksonville. Either of those two teams could pay him 20 million for this year, and still have plenty of cap space left.
  9. Panthers rescind Norman's franchise tag...

    Agreed. I certainly hoped he would come back this upcoming season. Gettleman made a decision that he feels in in the best interest of the team, and Norman made a decision that he feels is in the best interest of himself. I don't see any reason to get mad at him or Gettleman, at least not until we see what the result of the field is. I do think that sometimes fans get to vested in individual players and get hurt feelings with that player leaves.
  10. Panthers rescind Norman's franchise tag...

    Ah well, hope Bene is fully healthy and ready to step it up.
  11. Current projection: Hillary to win NY

    It wasn't that close. Clinton appears to have won by at least 15%
  12. Current projection: Hillary to win NY

    This myth that Hillary is a Republican is amusing. She is very much a democrat. But she is more pragmatic than Sanders, which is why she appears to be Republican to those on the extreme left, ie Sanders supporters. It is ironic that the areas of NY that Sanders won are those areas that are traditionally won by republicans, while Clinton dominated in the traditionally democratic New York area.
  13. 1st Round RBs vs. 2nd and 3rd Round RBs The Past 10 or so Years

    Well, I do disagree with some of your worth it vs not worth it. Stewart's availability or lack thereof is overstated a bit. He has played in about 80% of his potential games, probably a decent number for a running back. He did go thru a stretch of about 2 years when he missed a lot of games and his effectiveness in the ones he did play in was limited. But his overall numbers are pretty decent, better than Le'Veon Bell by comparison (especially if you look at their first three seasons only). Overall though, I agree that most running backs aren't worth a first unless they are a true game changer ala Gurley
  14. Derrick Henry Making Eddie Lacy Look Small

    First step quickness and/or the ability to take a hit from NFL defenders and keep going. Stewart has lost a step the last couple of years, but has been an effective back for us because he can keep going after that first hit. If Henry can do that, then he might be worth a pick. That is the big if though.
  15. Derrick Henry Making Eddie Lacy Look Small

    Maybe none of them, or maybe all of them. No one knows for certain until they actually play a few downs on Sunday. But the real question is not whether Henry can play well in the NFL, but if there are other players in the draft that would be a better pick for us than Henry, since we will likely have to use a first or second round pick to get him. If we use a first round pick on Henry, he eventually needs to be at least as good as Stewart.
