  1. In the first six games, all six qb's passed for 300 plus yards against NE. Since then, none have.
  2. Vernon Butler played well this year. If you look at his snap count, he was averaging playing 35% or better over the second half of the season. Those are solid numbers, given that he was playing behind Short and Star. It will be interesting to see if we think Butler is good enough to let Star go.
  3. He also took Otah and Jordan Gross in the first. To be honest, I think the main thing is to get a good player in the first, regardless of position. I believe that this year, any offensive or defensive area other than QB is in play. Dline, we could use a defensive end. An outside linebacker wouldn't hurt. A safety, wide receiver and offensive line help would be nice. And while we took CMC last year, I do feel that we need another running back to get ready to take Stewart's place. So its all open.
  4. Any chance we look LB in first round?

    He goes for OT as much as Rb.
  5. Bortles vs Keenum or Nick F would be a quarterback battle for the ages.
  6. Updates on the team sale

    I don't think that is true with most people. I live outside of Charlotte (well outside) and I don't hate it, and I haven't met anyone that really hates Charlotte, at least not any more than they hate any other big city. Met some people that hate the traffic, but that is about it.
  7. Interesting thing about it was that Funchess targets per game actually didn't change much after KB left. In fact, it went down slightly. Of course, injury and an improved run game had something to do with that, but I agree it didn't amount to much.
  8. Navy filing homicide charges in Fitzgerald and McCain collisions

    I have to admit that I haven't read the details of what happened. But I find the idea of sending someone to prison because of an accident unsettling. If they were drunk on duty, or down in the officers mess playing poker while they were supposed to be on watch, well that would be something they should go to prison for. But making a mistake while on watch is more of a getting fired and ending the career punishment, not going to prison. My first tour of duty was as an OS, but I never stood watch as an OS. But I do know enough to know that mistakes happen, and aren't usually criminal. This seems like a PR event/which hunt.
  9. what is the official tinderbox opinion on cryptocurrency?

    I don't really care that much about bitcoin, one way or the other. But there is one thing that I find interesting about some of bitcoins most ardent supporters. Some of them tend to be the same people who dislike the dollar being off the gold standard, because its not backed by anything. If you feel that way, then what is bitcoin backed by? Like most other investment items such as gold, silver, etc..., its only worth what people think its worth.
  10. Interesting thing though is that a liberal interpretation of the rules could have gotten him a taunting penalty. The taunting rule says no acts allowed that would be contrary to the generally understood rules of sportsmanship. Then it says such as but not limited to several things included the use of taunting tactics that might engender ill will between the teams. I could see a mocking chant causing some ill will among the teams. Would have loved to have seen him get called for it, and the penalty moved the Vikes into fg position, but the way it worked out was ok to.
  11. Titans part with Mularkey...

    But the guy that they replace him with had proven that he couldn't win much in regular season. He did ok for a couple of years, but the team got progressively worse. If you fire a successful employee, you better replace him with someone as good or better.
  12. Don't really care since I don't live in Charlotte. But it seems extremely wasteful to build a new one. Because of the PSL's, the panthers franchise is very profitable. There is simply no point in building a new stadium simply because the city might get to host a SB or a final four at some point.
  13. Sunday Divisional Round Games

    nah, they might intentionally hurt someone.
  14. Sunday Divisional Round Games

    The Saints defender that missed the tackle was merely a speed bump.
  15. Sunday Divisional Round Games

    Even worse (or better), than the Falcons loss in the SB.
  16. Sunday Divisional Round Games

    If I were a betting man, I would bet the Saints get in fg range and make it with time to spare. If I am Zimmer, I might be tempted to use my timeouts to give me some time when they score.
  17. Sunday Divisional Round Games

    Well, its time for the Vikes qb to show if he has the stuff.
  18. Sunday Divisional Round Games

    I ain't no fan of the aint's, but they were robbed terribly on a PI in the first half. Don't think the Vikes will be able to blame the refs if they lose.
  19. Sunday Divisional Round Games

    2nd and 1, its a great call. 3rd and 1, its a terrible call.
  20. Sunday Divisional Round Games

    Almost made that, yet it was a stupid call. Third and one at a critical point in the game, you get the first down. Hope it comes back to bite them in the a$$
  21. Sunday Divisional Round Games

    There was a receiver in the area.
  22. Sunday Divisional Round Games

    It is close, but no way they overturn it.
  23. Sunday Divisional Round Games

    You new here?
  24. Sunday Divisional Round Games

    Wonder how much $ he gets for a ankle.
