  1. pretty accurate right there. dude's the luckiest QB in the game.
  2. denver didn't kick our ass. they barely won and had it not been for a couple bad calls they wouldn't have. our offense was bad, their was worse. our QB didn't do well, but theirs did horribly. and it had nothing to do with our humility. nerves? maybe. overwhelmed at the moment, esp. after realizing that we were going to have to be playing against the refs as well? probably. but because we weren't humble? lol
  3. 2003 or 2015.... which one hurt more?

    i don't know about hurting more, but this one definitely pisses me off more.
  4. read it last night. pretty eye opening. might be worth doing a little copy/pasting of a portion of it. don't want to infringe on any copyrights. if someone has an account over there, maybe get that guy to post over here and educate us a little? i mean it wouldn't do much of anything but piss us of more, but it would be more light shown on it and in a more visible place than footballzebras or wherever that is. i do like how he called out the OP of that thread as a part time high school ref. that was funny.
  5. NFL Turning Point: The Clete Blakeman Effect

    it would bring attention to the fact that ref crews, esp. this one, show favoritism in hopes that the bad press will cause them to pay better attention to who they select for these games.
  6. NFL Turning Point: The Clete Blakeman Effect

    i hope this poo really starts getting attention. it was a bad call that put us in that situation to begin with and then this happens? you want to know why our heads weren't in it the rest of the game? like 24 said, didn't know we would be facing two teams. i know it's too late and there's no way they would change it. what's done is done, but we were screwed out of that win. i said we were kicked in the nuts early and never recovered, but it was the refs who did the kicking and that's a shame.
  7. we aren't removed enough from our european heritage that teaches us to "keep a stiff upper lip" and act like nothing phases us, good or bad. it teaches us that emotion is bad and showing it is doubly bad, esp. if it's negative emotion. emotion makes you weak and/or immature and showing it makes you look it. i think that emotion can be bad if it rules you and does nothing to make you a better, stronger person. what we have seen from cam is that he is a very strong emotional person. and i'm emphasizing strong on purpose. he's an incredibly strong and focused individual....no one can deny that. he's also prone to very strong emotions either way. what is interesting to me is the effect that his emotions have. when he's up and pumped, it's infectious. the thing that initially drew me to him while watching him in the oron bowl while he was at auburn wasn't just the incredible talent he had. it was the very visible effect he had on his teammates (because they talked about his lockerroom speech at half time that resulted in their comeback win) but the effect he had on the crowd as a cheer leader. he got that stadium rocking. HE got that stadium rocking. the other side of that is the effect his more negative emotions have. sure, it can have an effect on those around him and that isn't so good, but with that said, i think it has an incredibly positive effect on him. first, look at what brings him down and makes him "sulk" or turn into "mr. mopeyhead" or whatever.....failure. not meeting his goals. not living up to the expectations that HE had for himself. not anyone else's expectation, but his. he hates that. he doesn't accept it and it drives him on to greatness. it's his fuel. you want the effect that his positive emotions can have on things? then you have to deal with the negative emotional part that helps him get there. we are all built and wired differently and there isn't one right or wrong way to respond to stimuli. i mean lines can be drawn where it hurts other people, but aside from some press people missing a predictable and canned answer they were hoping for so they can seem legit, he hasn't hurt anyone. what this deal with cam is teaching us is it's alright to be different. the problem is that many are reluctant to learn. people aren't as tolerant of others as they thought they were.
  8. we screwed ourselves as much as the refs did, but if the refs had done their jobs right it wouldn't have cost us the game. of course the counter to that is if we hadn't kept shooting ourselves in the foot, the bad calls the refs made wouldn't have cost us the game.
  9. it's also not a good idea to piss off the guys you need to talk to so that you can pay your bills. the way voth is going he's not just going to be public enemy #1 in the base you get most of your clicks from, but to the team you hitched your wagon to. i mean it's just not a good look. and yes, i'm going to keep driving that into the ground.
  10. but the broncos just did. only one team scored on offense and it wasn't the team that won. had it not been for that blown catch call, the broncos wouldn't have scored at all. we wouldn't have been back at the goal line for cam to lose the ball and them recover in the end zone. that one bad call won (or at least put them in position to win) them the game, not their defense. definitely not their offense. i don't think it was a conspiracy by the NFL against the panthers that we lost that game, but the broncos won because they had on officiating crew that they were 6-0 with because they gave the broncos the benefit of the doubt. i don't think they realized it, but they were. it clouded their ability to be objective. when forced to guess (like they did on the cotchery call) they went in favor of the orange and blue.
  11. here's the thing, who says he's acting like a baby and what makes them the authority? is it ok for him to act like a baby? no. has he been? no.
  12. we've had some horribly reffed games this year, but that is turning into the worst. and that was supposed to be the best crew from this past year? lol  
  13. i don't think he's acting like a baby. i think he's tired of playing that game with the media and so he's just not playing anymore. i don't blame him.   and if you're talking about him showing that he's upset about losing, why in the world should he pretend it doesn't bother him? what benefit is it to anyone other than to make them feel more comfortable to pretend that you aren't bothered by losing the most important game of your life?
  14. And the press will continue to be as fickle as ever constantly waiting for him to trip so they can do their self righteous happy dance. Many around the league will continue to whine, frustrated and desperate soccer moms will continue to write letters, banners will be torn down, and fat emo fans from other teams will keep starting petitions to have him banned from their stadiums while he keeps on winning. It's all good.

    Of all the positions I think we need to address, RB in FA is not one. RB in the draft. Get your mileage out of them while they're young and cheap. Let someone else pay for them on their downward spiral. Any other position I would be fine with in FA.
