unfortunately :( but... law of averages right?!

 

good game guys - i'm a diehard patriots fan. i follow them 24/7 for past 30 years.  

you guys have a good board.    i've been lurking and i love your passion. 

 

3. KB looked good.  i expect great things from him.   i envy big WRs.  6ft 5 240lb guy who can run and catch?  he definitely stood out.  

 

4. there is no defensive player i would rather have for my pats than kuechly in the entire NFL.  not sherman, watt,  miller, peterson, bowman, and etc.  such a great playmaker with a great instinct.  if he was a pat, he probably would've been my favorite player of all time - topping my fav pat, bruschi.  

 

6. for panthers to get to the deep in the playoffs, cam must turn into top 7 QB IMO.   it's hard to build a team like seattle.  that doesn't happen often.  but just like peyton, brady, rodgers, brees - QB can change everything.   i think cam has all the tools.   IMO, he is actually underrated.   with all this talk of wilson, kaep,  Luck - Cam is often not mentioned from media.   regardless, i think Cam has what it takes to be a rising superstar - meaning a face of the NFL.  once he become even more mature i think he will eventually become top 7 QB.   and when brady/manning/brees leave for good, that means Cam should be top 4. 

 

7. i miss steve smith.  outside of pats, smith was my favorite offensive player.  

 

8. i lived in SC in 90's.  panthers fan base came long long way.  mad kudos.   

 

10. sorry about SB XXXVIII, but it was a helluva game.  one of the best SB ever.  do you guys miss delhomme?  i kinda miss him.  i loved watching him play.  

 

 

good luck to your team, and hopefully we meet again in the SB.   

 

yes my good man. welcome to the Huddle.

i wouldn't go that far.  :)   but i do have families in charlotte & charleston.   maybe i'm a closet panther.  lol    i also lived in chicago for a while, so i was forced to follow bears and even attend several bears games.

ramblings -  

 

1.  sorry guys, but there is no 'revenge' factor from the players and BB.  but fans?  definitely yes.   here is what we are going through internally.  we haven't won it all for 10 years.  we only care about winning the SB.  brady or bb isn't into revenge.  at least not anymore.  we revenged our losses many times past 10 years.  that didn't get us the 4th SB.   most treat this season as beginning 'last hurrah' for brady & bb. it's the last tour.   we know the window closing. they know it.  3 years?  4 years maybe?     we are all deprived. fans, kraft, bb, brady, other pats.    we miss that feeling.  it's been 10 years. this is the only reason why we take preseason seriously.   BB makes players to run a mile after stinkers. 

 

2. many fans feel that we lost the edge along the way.  pats used to be nasty.   patriot swagger was gone for past few years.   in our off season we focused on trying to be nasty.  revis signing was huge for us.  he will bring nastiness to our D.   we saw what seattle did.   we are realizing we must fix the D or no 4th SB.   

 

3. KB looked good.  i expect great things from him.   i envy big WRs.  6ft 5 240lb guy who can run and catch?  he definitely stood out.  

 

4. there is no defensive player i would rather have for my pats than kuechly in the entire NFL.  not sherman, watt,  miller, peterson, bowman, and etc.  such a great playmaker with a great instinct.  if he was a pat, he probably would've been my favorite player of all time - topping my fav pat, bruschi.  

 

5. i understand the hate on brady. he isn't your typical next door neighbor.  dude can be a major a hole on the field. he has everything.  guys like that don't make good friends.  

 

   but put yourself in his shoe for a sec.   he misses that early SB success.   he will do whatever it takes to get W.  all he ever wants to do is win his 4th.  he knows more than anybody how hard it is to win one.  it's been 10 years.  it's killing him.  every scream & yelling is saying 'WTF!  this ain't gonna get me my 4th'.   he will die trying another ring.  let's say he is 40 and he couldn't get it done.   he will go to other team and try to get one.  he is a competitor.   i wish other fans embrace that insane drive to succeed.  i wish fans understand that.     you can hate his look, hate his antics, hate his lifestyle, but embrace his passion for the game.  because IMO, it's amusing to see a man who has everything still loses a sleep over a bad play.  and brady isn't about stats either - if he did, he won't keep throwing to thompkins or dobson - 2 talented, but puppies on the field.  

 

6. for panthers to get to the deep in the playoffs, cam must turn into top 7 QB IMO.   it's hard to build a team like seattle.  that doesn't happen often.  but just like peyton, brady, rodgers, brees - QB can change everything.   i think cam has all the tools.   IMO, he is actually underrated.   with all this talk of wilson, kaep,  Luck - Cam is often not mentioned from media.   regardless, i think Cam has what it takes to be a rising superstar - meaning a face of the NFL.  once he become even more mature i think he will eventually become top 7 QB.   and when brady/manning/brees leave for good, that means Cam should be top 4.  

 

i don't think cam will ever get to brady/manning level, but i think he can get to prime big ben level but better.  cam is big as hell, and he can move.  and he is only gonna get better skill wise.  but he has to be that crazy insane mania like peyton/brady are.  if he is treating monday to -friday like a homework then that's not enough.  he has to treat it like a final exam.  he must lose sleep over a bad play.   

 

7. i miss steve smith.  outside of pats, smith was my favorite offensive player.  

 

8. i lived in SC in 90's.  panthers fan base came long long way.  mad kudos.     

 

9. sorry about biakabutuka. (i went to michigan)

 

10. sorry about SB XXXVIII, but it was a helluva game.  one of the best SB ever.  do you guys miss delhomme?  i kinda miss him.  i loved watching him play.  

 

 

good luck to your team, and hopefully we meet again in the SB.   

 

See, this is a first post from a rival fan that others should be measured by. Well-meaning, reasonable bias towards his own team, and respectful tone. Welcome to the Huddle!

Best answer this post please.

It was blatantly obvious what was going on and what was on BBs mind. TB was playing against 3rd stringers at one point. Out defense curbed poo when all our starters minus CJ were out there.


Most rational post about all of this. Zero sacks against Brady is common, but we applied great pressure(which is what you have to do) when our first string was out there ie tom was throwing balls in the dirt.

This was personal for BB and any patriots fan who says different is just being a homer.

 

and keek v brady reminded me of ray lewis vs brady. keek won this matchup though it was short lived. which is simply amazing considering his age. I noticed Keek on the sideline screaming at teammates about what Brady was doing. i got goosebumps because barring injury keek may go down as the greatest ever mentally and i firmly believe that.

 

 

you hit the nail.  totally didn't think of ray lewis, but yeah kuechly reminds me of ray lewis.     kuechly is the next great QB of the defense from my eyes.  i don't know kuechly in detail. is he a leader of man?  does he live football like how singletary or ray lewis lived football?  i don't really  know much about him outside of what i see on the football field(which is greatness), but IMO, this kid will be one of the top 5-6 face of the nfl.

He's obsessed with football. Every indication from coaches and teammates is that he basically has no life away from the field.

 

Don't let the stories surrounding Cam fool you, he's just as fanatical. Every offseason he comes to the stadium and continues his routine of watching film and preparing for teams even if his season is over all the way through Super Bowl week. He says he does it because as long as football is being played his season is not over.

glad to hear both young studs are footballaholics.   i kinda figured kuechly to be a footballholic.  but didn't really think cam was one too.  

 

yes, it's unfortunate, but my perception does get altered a bit because of what media is feeding me. media has a way of making somebody and then totally jumps ship to another one.  BSPN really is an evil.  lol.  

 

2 years ago when cam was  sorta struggling, they jumped to RGIII bandwagon and never looked back.  and right now media definitely crowned andrew luck to be the next great one - which is probably a right decision.  i think luck will be great, but it almost seems like media is already anointing luck to be peyton/brady level.  i was listening to this radio show guy, colin cowherd - he believes Luck is better and bigger aaron rodgers - but he thinks Cam is just a hype.  

 

 Cam is equally talented and even more gifted physically. and if he really does study football like peyton/brady, then why not cam?  and now that cam has a legit #1 guy in benjamin, i'm very curious to see how his game will develop. maybe next year is the cam's 'coming out year' since benjamin will have some rookie growing pains.
