  1. Need some input from NC residents

    I live in Raleigh, have a car, and still prefer the train. Comfortable even when sold out, Wi-Fi works well, and really isn't much slower than driving. Faster if there's traffic. Take the train and don't second guess it. 
  2. Third down conversions by opponents

    Curious how this stacks up among past Super Bowl champs, and more specifically how it compares across defensive scheme. 
  3. Good question/thought. We'll soon know. Like @Moorgan said, I think this Sunday's game may be all the indicator we need. 
  4. Re: Rivera, exactly. Eagerly await his reaction when Joe Person brings this up. 
  5. Rarely do I watch anything except live-game ESPN but it's on in the background tonight. Dilfer just accused the Panthers' secondary, and specifically Norman, of routine cheap shots. Says anyone who doesn't watch the all 22 wouldn't know. "Don't be fooled by the glamour of the undefeated Panthers...this is a trend." Another OBJ apologist, no surprise. But I'll be the first to admit...I don't watch the all 22. Anyone who does...any merit to this? Coleman is hard nosed, Harper a vet who has towed the line, but it's hard for me to see this as a unit-wide trend. Embellishment one thing, slander another. If unsubstantiated it's absurd. Irrespective, love the hate. Embrace it.  KEEP HATING
  6. We get Joe and Troy on Sunday...

    Simms is so so bad. Concussed forever. Travesty he's paired with Jim Nantz.  I like him a lot because he's so smart but a lot of people gripe about Collinsworth.  Brennaman comes with Charles Davis who I can take or leave. And that's the point. Opinions are mixed. There is no holy unquestioned duo when it comes to the announcing booth. The C team guys are C team for a reason, they're not as talented, and the A team guys, let's face it, don't know our team as well and it reflects in the knowledge they bring to the game. Which is what many wrongly perceive as bias - if you stop and think about it does anyone really think Joe Buck or anyone else is emotionally invested in the game's outcome?

    Who in the hell else would you prefer? People gripe about every announcing duo like there's another definitively better. I'll take anything over the C teams. 
  8. Where's NanceUSMC?

    The reddit page is pretty good. Less complaining, less PanthersUnited analysis and by extension fewer PanthersUnited attacks (which are worse than the analysis), and the same links posted. Less personality, but of course depends on what you come for. You'd have to ask the boss here, but I imagine the majority of folks read and rarely post. 
  9. This scenario plays out as follows: Brady's performance tapers off, numbers are still incredible, but has a couple of stinkers perhaps in highly visible games late in the season. Cam follows the same upward trajectory but we drop 2-3 down the stretch, throw in maybe one off game, sub-60 completion percentage "issue" lingers.  The left-for-dead Cowboys win out or finish 8-8 and win the NFC East (I believe this would be possible mathematically), Romo plays best football of his career, wins MVP.  As a Panthers fan, what's your reaction?  This scenario really adds to the ongoing debate around what "MVP" means: Brady is the best player. The Cam camp points to "most valuable" [to his team] case and projects that we'd be 9-7 with DA. The Romo camp points to an 8-1 or 9-0 record with Romo, and an 0-7 record without, making the "most valuable" [to his team] case a little more empirical.  Could this even occur? Is there a historical example?  I'm sure there will be plenty of "don't care, 10-0 is all that matters" responses, but curious what those of you interested think.  *Note to mods: accidentally posted in the general NFL forum and cannot figure out how to move/delete. If I've overlooked something feel free to shoot me behind the woodshed.

  11. Miami Hurricanes Interested in Shula

    lol see a beautiful girl and say she deserves no credit because it's only due to good genetics. who cares? beauty is beauty. winning football is winning football. enjoy it. 
  12. Miami Hurricanes Interested in Shula

    I question whether those of you enthused about a potential departure of anyone, even the ball boy, on an 8-0 team are even fans. 
  13. One Panther makes pffs all worst team

    Sure, but this is his 6th season post Fox and one of those was with Chud who very much knows how to utilize TEs. Anyway not bashing the guy, not bashing anyone. Just saying I've not for a second thought "what could have been" with Gary Barnidge. 
  14. One Panther makes pffs all worst team

    The 30-year-old who has 1200 yards in his career? Who had < 300 yards in his previous two seasons with the Browns? Roster spots are limited. If you hold a stock and it doubles after 5 years but while waiting you could have invested in another that tripled in 2, where does that leave you? Better off than you started, but not where you could have been.  Good for him putting it together. Good for us not waiting.
