  1. CarolinaSock added a post in a topic Panthers - Patriots: 5 things I am looking for   

    Cam did get knocked around in the game last year, but his injury occurred on a play where he had all day to throw and chose to run with an open field in front of him. He simply got down late and essentially rolled into the defender that hit him.

    I wanted AJ instead of Cam. I was really intrigued by Dennis Dixon and wanted us to give him a shot when he came out. I thought Matt  Moore could be a serviceable starter. I was not a fan of Benjamin, preferred Mathews.

    Pff credits Corey with one drop, so I guess they saw it as a tipped or defended ball as well.

    Everyone, even Avant if you pro rate his numbers to the number of snaps Wayne took would grade higher. Oh, and just for those few I've seen mention Nicks, he is just above Wayne at a -10.0 on over 250 fewer snaps. Wayne graded at a -10.3.

    Wayne was credited with 9 drops last year and was in the bottom ten in receiver ratings on PFF. He's not the receiver he was even 2 years ago. Just because you recognize a name does not automatically make them good.

  6. CarolinaSock added a post in a topic Our offense is piss poor, time to cough up something for a WR, Gettleman   

    People clamoring for Wayne clearly did not see him play last year. He was one of the worst rated receivers in the league by PFF. He's credited with 9 drops last year. He's no better than Cotchery at this point in his career

  7. CarolinaSock added a post in a topic Likely defensive strategy we'll see all year long   

    Why does everyone act like those deep passes on 3rd and short were the only routes being run on that play? Cam chooses to throw to that particular route. I get that Shula isn't a offensive genius and has shortcomings but it's getting ridiculous how he gets blamed for every issue on offense including Cam's decision making. Of course if Shula called a play with nothing but shallow routes on 3rd and short you'd all complain he didn't call a route to stretch the field.

  8. CarolinaSock added a post in a topic Not a good practice today   

    How did a post about about the passing game being bad today veer into posts about implementing a zone blocking scheme for the run game?

  9. CarolinaSock added a post in a topic The O-Line looked a lot better on Friday, thanks to Cam Newton   

    Oher did what he's supposed to do, ride his guy behind Cam and out of the play. The problem in the past was instead of stepping up in the pocket Cam would often spin backwards right into the path of the defender. Watch other teams play and you'll see a perfectly clean pocket is not as common as many here seem to think. Being able to set and throw with bodies around is what often separates average quarterbacks from the special ones.

    This is what I was wondering. He's nothing like Bersin or Boykin and more in the form of Brown and Ginn. Seems he'd be more likely to replace one of them rather than a large bodied possession receiver like Bersin or Boykin.

    OK, so you release whole conversations proving what you want, you don't cut and paste pieces of them with whole chunks missing. Hard to keep context on comments when one comment is answering a question or responding to a comment the editor leaves out. But of course these folks and most of their intended  viewers don't care about context at all.

    Why release videos under 10 minutes long comprised from hours of raw footage unless you're trying to make a point the entire footage won't make for you?

  13. CarolinaSock added a post in a topic Tell me about Charlotte Country Day School   

    The former long time head football coach is a close family friend. They have always had top  notch facilities as long as I've known coach Witman. Even 15 years ago the difference in the weight rooms alone between Catholic (96-00 alum)  and Country Day was staggering. Lacrosse appears to be very popular there as the last few years he has mentioned losing several players to that team. The football team is nearly always competitive and when the cards fall right with talent they've won multiple state championships in the past.

    I'm assuming you've never seen Mike Trout play baseball. He's only slightly smaller than Kuechly playing Centerfield.

    ​I don't hate the guy, he's the most physically gifted NBA player ever and one of the best passers I've ever seen. I don't find his game very attractive, he steamrolls people and then complains when someone actually puts up some resistance.
