Oh wow, I really love this David Gettis kid.

11 posts in this topic

And not just because of his performance today.

I'll admit it when it comes to unproven rookies, with the exception of a high profile name like Jimmy, I tend to overlook some of them and only really get interested in them on a more personal, in-depth level, AFTER they show me something.

For those of you that are like me in that regard, I STRONGLY URGE YOU, to watch this post-game interview with him.

WOW! What a humble kid. Intelligent. AND MATURE! Oh man if only he can maintain this type of playing he would have THE PERFECT skill-personality combo and would quickly rise as one of the main leaders of this offense.

That is what I want to see in my Panthers. Seriously this kid talks with the maturity level of John Kasay. Very impressed. He has that "quiet confidence" vibe going too. I really like that.

I hope he continues to have success... and it doesn't go to his head. He sounds great, and he looked great out there.

I like Gettis. I watched that clip earlier today, and I like how he's humble. He doesn't sound like a thug either when he speaks, definitely seems intelligent and a class act.

Yeah that's exactly what I was thinking. I love Smith to death, but it's nice to see the alternative.

A talented black NFL receiver with no traces of thug or the typical(ok maybe not-so-typical) cockiness T.O and Ochocinco have graces us with?

On OUR team?

Someone slap me and wake me up. This kid could actually be A ROLE model. Like for real, for real.

Even if he doesn't get that I have a feeling after today other teams are going to be accounting for him from here on out.

I know I am. I'm going to be paying a lot more attention to him now, and believe he should definitely be a lock for #2 WR next week. Hopefully next week he can lock it down for the season.

Which will just leave the battle between LaFell and Devin Thomas.

I'm hoping he can replace the void left by Moose when he left. He certainly proved he has the ability to run routes well and he can make some tough catches. The best part is that David has made steady progress each and every game, this guy has really adjusted well to playing in the NFL.

    • I had always assumed she was dardaroarroar
    • elton simpson was monitored over a 9 year period (fbi claims there were breaks but at the least there were still years of monitoring) and at least $132,000 in cash was spent on one informant alone. here's the fbi's version in the immediate aftermath of the shooting:   Three hours before gunmen attacked an anti-Prophet Muhammad event in Garland, Texas on Sunday, the FBI sent a bulletin to local police with a photo of one of the shooters, Elton Simpson, noting that he was "interested in the event," FBI director James Comey said. At the time, the FBI had no reason to believe that Simpson intended to attack the event, Comey told reporters Thursday. Nor did the agency know that Simpson was already on his way there. Comey also said that he does not believe that the police officer who shot Simpson and the second gunman, Soofi Nadir, was aware of the bulletin. He went on to say that while the investigation of the Phoenix gunmen is far from complete, Comey believes the FBI acted appropriately. ..... Two weeks before the Garland event, which invited artists to draw illustrations of Muhammad, the FBI and Homeland Security warned law enforcement agencies across the country that it was at risk of being targeted by Islamic extremists. The advisory noted that supporters of ISIS and other terror groups had posted links to the contest on Twitter. Simpson was reading those posts, and communicated with an American in Somalia who'd called for attacking the event, investigators have said. The FBI then developed information that Simpson might be interested in traveling to Garland, Comey said. The Sunday bulletin followed. ..... The FBI now has hundreds of investigations of potential home grown extremists under way, with cases open in every state. "I know there are other Elton Simpsons out there," Comey said. Finding them, however, is a "very hard task," he said. Investigators can follow messages that are posted on public twitter accounts. But ISIS recruiters are steering people off Twitter into encrypted forums, which the government cannot see, Comey said. "Its the old going-dark problem, in living color," said Comey. He added: "We have hundreds working on it around the clock. But in almost every case of violence, someone saw something. A friend, a family member. Its more important than ever for people to speak up."     ^^^just a reminder for the bolded parts that a federal agent was in the car directly behind them as they opened their doors and began their short lived attack
    • Looks like it has potential. BvS was terrible. I will say the extended version was a better film but still not good. Suicide Squad was one of the worst films I've seen in a while.  That said of course I will waste my money and go see this. I hope they bring back Batman's more cunning qualities in future films. I got the sense that in BvS he was a what you see is what you get type of guy. You don't get the feeling that he has something up his sleeve at all times. Which was something Nolan/Bale had, almost Bond-esque.
