It's the most wonderful time of the year

22 posts in this topic

These started going up as soon as we clinched being in the playoffs - couldn't finish until I took down the Christmas stuff because I kept blowing circuits. Some of you have seen some of the before - they only go up when the panthers make the playoffs so it makes them all the more special.

Everything is pretty old except the football and the very large thing on my front porch. The football is a couple of years old but is just now making it's debut. The large thing on the porch is new this year. And the flash washed out the blue lights in the shrubs, but they're there.

Forgot one of the decorations - it's an old one that was on the back porch - the helmet (/grill, it's never been used as a grill)

The year I bought the big inflatable...I remembered seeing it before football season began. I toyed and toyed with buying it and finally broke down - my reasoning - one year we're going to the Superbowl and I know I'll regret it if I didn't buy it. Notice the number on that thing 03.

Before then I just had banners and flags and lights. Oh - and I did get my beer light before then as well. I should look through old photos to see what all I had back then. I wasn't on a message board when we went to the NFC Championships against Green Bay so I doubt I took pictures.

Yeah - that's the fog - it's awful right now. I've got spotlights in the yard and you can see every droplet in the air.

Oh - and pretend like you don''t notice the banners on the garage are upside down - those are among my oldest flags - they didn't even have panthers flags that first year so I got those. They used to work the way I used to hang them - on slanted poles on the front porch, but that large banner took their spot.

And that banner on the front porch - that was also pre-flag days. I bought the printed fabric and made it - notice the alternate logo on it. Those date all the way back to the first year of existence.

    • A pro? Cool. Just quit crying in the panthers main forum about the quality of threads and talking about how you're going to leave. That's not what a troll does. If you're going to troll troll right
    • Naziism wasn't really socialism and in fact one of their first orders of business was to eradicate Communists from Germany. Also, trying to meld Nazis with socialists is disingenuous because the issue with Nazi Germany wasn't their economy which actually recovered quite well under Nazi rule, but the first part of their name.  "Nationalist".  That is what drove them to war crimes and mass murder of Jews and immigrants. And the party that currently most mirrors a form of nationalism close to Naziism is the Republican Party.  With heavy anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim, criminalization of minorities, etc etc rhetoric.  
    • Looked at both your posts, they didn't improve so I will pick this one. Cherrypicking a stat or six game period that was decent hardly justifies that we were middle of the pack. First of all this discussion was about cornerbacks not defensive ends so your run defense and sack stats means little. Newsflash. We were top 10 in rush defense because teams didn't have to run on us when they could pick up chunks in passing the ball. We were 26th in number of rushing attempts by the opponent meaning 25 teams had the opponent rush more times than we did.  And we were second in sacks for the same reason. Teams passed all the time on us giving us many more times to sack them.  We had the 6th most passes thrown against us. We were second in sacks behind Arizona- 47   to their 48. But they had 547 attempts against them versus our 612. So we had a sack for every 13 attempts. Arizona had a sack every 11 attempts. Even Buffalo which ranked 9th in sacks with 39 had the same one sack for every 13 passes attempted as we did. Teams completed passes almost 70% of the time which also ranks us 29th. We were tied for 22nd with 4 other teams in giving up 7.5 yards per pass play.  We were 21st in yards surrendered in total defense. And in points surrendered we were 26th not 15th. That was offense not defense that was 15th. With all the offense and Shula bashing I can understand why you might think the defense was better than the offense but it was the other way around. TL,DR Wrong we are one of the worse defenses in the league no matter how you look at it.
