    Carolina Panthers select TE Ian Thomas

    They spent a night controlling the board and came up with this? Underwhelming

    Okay. So then...Why?

    Every part of "I have a life" Jeff Garcias soul is filled with the caricature of the dumb jock-douche played in every 80's movie....except he is real.
  3. You described a guy as "he reminds me of Charles Godfrey" Fail!
  4. What would help jumpstart the traditional South Kacky college fan's interest is If the Panthers partnered with SC & Clemson to alternate playing one preseason game a year at Williams Brice one year & Death Valley the next year. That would do alot and help build closer relationships with the staffs of two NFL talent-heavy teams with our own scouts and coaches. Winning consistently and being nationally relevant is important as we were in 2015. Everyone suddenly had Panther gear in week 15 & the wife and I would be like where was all this the last 8 years we have lived there? I would say that the 2015 increased the fanbase by 25% around here post bandwagon jump off. The folks in SC LOVE to be front runners:they used love college baseball(2 national Championships) now it's likewarm, suddenly love Women's college bball(1 national Championship in 2017) and during the 2017 NCAA tourny, there was very few Gamecock fans that could name the starting 5 of the Mens Final 4 team but off to ColonialLife Arena they went where one could hear questions like..."I thought it was 4 Quarters! I goota pee out this moonshine" and what is that clock on top of the backboard for? Look there is a long way to go just to have folks care about other sports out side of Sat football. In my office, i spoke to one person who watched the NCAA championship game. Others began to describe the Women's NCAA finals or said what game last night? Just know it is not uncommon to be in a bar/grill on a Sunday where most the TVs are on Fox new and HGTV where Chip and Joanna are restoring homes for the cheap!! SC can disappoint so hard.
  5. I think it depends on where in SC. Closer to Charlotte: the Rock Hills and Ft. Mills are definite high in Panther fans. In Columbia? It is all Gamecocks and maybe 1 in 25-30 Gamecock only fans will tune in to catch 20 total minutes a game that the Panthers are winning. A LOT of Gamecock fans are just indifferent to other sports in general but most(6 outta 10) definitely HATE Cam Newton, since he tore their azzes up twice winning the Heisman at Auburn.... oddly 6 out 10 Gamecock fans also love country music, yell fake news and say "Heritage" with a lot of pride describing the past.

    Jarvis Landry

    This ensure Odell Beckham will be paid QB type money from someone. I just cannot imagine a senario where Gettles will destroy his cap paying a WR who seems enotionally fragile. Unless... they draft a rookie QB and shockingly part with that Eli cap hit...bc he is garbage juice.

    Getting laid off in july

    Also with a severence deal, you typically have to agree to sign legal paperwork which ensures the employer canoot be sued in exchange for the severance. These may include no compete clauses etc. As Naquan stated this is an "AT WILL" state which means the employee has very little recourse. As I used to teach employment law working in HR, an employer can walk randomy decide to fire everyone wearing a red shirt and it is within the employer's rights. They can fire one for any reason that does not violate a protected class. Legal age protection is 40 and above. ______________________________________ I was let go from a 6 figure job back in 2011 and it SUCKED. My severence was generous but it quickly ran out in 6 months. I tried to take jobs in my field with well known terrible companies (similar job/salary potential) but they were indeed, terrible cultures and I lost interest quickly. My wife got her RN degree & got tired of me being on unemployment again and wanted to sabatage me getting like really good at Madden yelling at a 13 year olds at 4am. She suggested I take a job with a company I like, quit chasing a minimum salary and try to get in the ground floor with a company that is supposed to be awsome to work for. This may mean taking a much smaller salary(in my case like a LOT SMALLER) and although financeswill be tight, I should be able to learn the company and be promoted quickly. Since my wife went from full time student with part time income to full time RN, her salary took a decent jump to absorb the hit on my salary. I took a job in a lol..call center which sucked (the job and money) but the company was awesome and I was able to move out of the department in 9 months. It took about 18 months total but I got into a postion that pays decently and will get 25% higher salary in May due to a promo. Long story lesson: if you can, try to find a place you have heard is awesome to work for..get in any way you can, learn everything and stand out. It could mean lower wages for a bit but everyhing should work out with what you have learned and know from your experience. Or crap, If you have a Publix grocery store where Department managers like the deli manager for example, make around 75 grand with great benefits. I have a friend who is a store manager there and he makes 125k? He loves it. Retail/grocery is not my thing as I have done both in my work past. But it was one of many options at one time for salary/quick job. Sorry for the novel.

    Legion season 2

    The Last Jedi

    Crystal Critters? Really It really felt like a Disney's Star Wars Rougue One made me feel the promise.
  11. When life gives you Daniel LaRusso......you sweep it's sorry, pathetic leg! ..except when you are saying that Daniel LaRusso embodies the Panthers...of course. CRANE KICK THAT SEACHICKEN AZZ!!!
  12. My original Huddle name was Jambalayah! in celebration of the Jake Delhomme signing so you would not be giving anything up to a bandwagon fan. Having to root for Delhomme and then enduring every snap of the Jimmy Clausen season...you could say I feel like this Karma should happen for a certain Ninja....See you on the field!! You truly love your team if you smiled and said sure..I believe Jimmy Clausen will improve!!

    Pulling for the Bengals until......

    Pac Man Jones was traded for...Burfict had major red flags and a worse 40 time. Point is...the roster has cornerstones that are unstable and trash. It would be like building the team around Greg Hardy. They have drafted-coddled and seek problem children on the regular.

    Pulling for the Bengals until......

    Draft Garbage human beings for your teams roster and they will make garbage decisions....Marvin Lewis will be the one that pays but the GM is the one drafting the player with character red flags in the early rounds every year.
  15. I do agree agree with this. Short has really masked the team's avg production from the ends. His push up the middle has caused many a poor throws and yet another guy a team has to game plan for. As Gettles once said: he values guys more that play closer to the line as they impact more plays per game. IMO extending Short is a more important signing than Josh Norman....but let us hope we have both for a while.
  16. I long for the days where the whole defense is pointing at each other in confusion..ahem CHARLES GODFREY!!

    Another school shooting, this time in Oregon

    If these mass killings were by black males Fox news would be talking about how Obama envourages gun violence....and you better believe all the cameo-milita-gun rights folks would have a different talking point about mental illness.
  18. Lukes like I have been following for a while bc @Carona Huddle is the Panther fan must follow. Luke Kuchley was a great pick I loved from the beginning...he has quickly made me forget one of my all time faves in Jon Beason. @tantricninja

    Newton's instagram continues to be unique...

    The Supremacy movements that I think are awesome involve adding sourcream and tomatoes!! ...and fug all of your posts..you know who you are.
  20. For Hypothetical trades WR Donte Moncief seems to be moving to 4th on the Colt's depth chart. Not sure he would be available but if the team offered an aggressive trade pkg for a WR it would make sense to get a young big WR guy who could be a legit #2 WR. Colts adding Andre Johnson and drafting the speedster from Miami has put him on a part time role. Or hopefully Justin Hunter gets cut.
  21. Simonson seems like the better blocker between Lucas&Williams..of course I do say that bc he is white. The lack of snaps for Lucas was puzzling esp in red zone situations where he could be a nice threat as a big wr or as a wing blocker on run plays..but oh well. They seen more of him than I have in practice. The additions of Wes Horton and Glanton make total sense. The experience Boykin has as a starter in GB makes me think we may keep him ....but from what snaps he received in week 3 It would seem his playbook will be requested.
  22. So Mayo is not a duplication of Klien? I think Glanton or Trunsnick would be of more value here. I do agree with most the lineup.
  23. Marcus Lucas:Thy shall shine!!
  24. Yes...Marcus Lucas has always been the answer. Does Swoll Bones get placed on PUP?
