As for those who say that talking about it means nothing, you couldn't be more wrong. Anyone who is familiar with the world of intentionality knows that the first step to changing a behavior is first acknowledging what the issue is, publicly taking responsibility and stating what is going to be different. By making it public you are establishing a much different level of accountability which now people will hold you to since you declared your intentions in a public form.
He could have decided to change his behavior and not say a thing about it in the event he changed his mind or failed to be his word, no one would have known. But doing it like he did, he upped the accountability a hundred fold and increased the likelihood he will follow through on his commitment. So putting it into words was a big deal in and of itself.

Who keeps bringing up Matt Moore anyways? Its like ever time TRD makes a comment the 1st thing out of a Panther fans mouth is "well, Matt Moore sucks." Bringing up Matt Moore or the Dolphins or even the Redskins (in my case) after every post adds nothing to the conversation at hand. Dam sooo who are the trolls you speak of??

I may be the only one here, but I dislike this. Agreed he needs to mature but I do not want him thinking "I'll get it on the next play" Thats a road to mediocrity.


Anyone who has played sports at any kind of level knows what he talking about. You are never perfect and instead of worrying about past mistakes you have to put that out of your mind and prepare for the next opportunity. It is about getting it back on the next play but that is not mediocrity, it is recognizing that you have to play as hard as you can at the highest level you can for 60 minutes. You don't give up or get down while there is still a chance to win.

I could care less if he says things I don't like, but adding nothing to the discussion, or bringing in irrelevant attacks is a perfect example of the kind of thing that shouldn't be tolerated in a message board. There's a difference between saying the following (for example):which I don't agree with but can understand as an opinion that is relevant to the topic, and this:Which is both factually incorrect, written specifically to draw ire, and is irrelevant to the topic being discussed.The first is fine, the second should get your pathetic ass BANNED.

Actually you and TRD brought it on yourselves by taking swipes at the Panthers every chance you get while extoling the virtues of other teams or their players. There are other posters on here that are fans of other teams that don't get the grief that you do. You have been a troll on numerous occasions so you can cut the "woe is me" act.

I went on a 3 week ban from wanting to crub stomp TRd. So it's better to just ignore him and move on.

"taking swipes" and telling it like it is are to different things. I try to speak as little as possible on the subject of my favorite team. If i wanted to speak of them i would be on a different board entirely. I can look around the rest of the NFL and give props to deserving players with no problem. Its not a shot at the Panthers. Patting Andy Dalton on the back for a job well done isn't a poke in the eye of Cam. Oh and "woe is me" is not in my vocabulary, i don't bitch and whine when someone types a difference of opinion.

Great article, and hats off to Cam for continuing to recognize and improve on his weaknesses. This approach is what is needed to be not only good, but a head above everyone else.

As for the trolls, as someone else pointed out, they are the gnats of the Huddle. For whatever reason, the admins choose to allow it, so let them continue with their pathetic little contributions while the rest of the world ignores them.

Perhaps if no one responded, the admins would understand that most don't want to see the Huddle turn into a series of juvenile pissing matches, and perhaps they would take their role more seriously in the future.

Hey, the overall quality of the forum may suffer, but at least the people consistently trying to start arguments get to say whatever they want.

That's justice right there.

It's funny you want to pat Dalton on the back but won't go to the 2 Cinncy Bengals forum
to do it.

Just wondering because I haven't really followed the situation but why do some people on this site dislike Matt Moore?

Why? Is this a f*cking Carolina Panthers fan forum or not? This is the most troll-infested board I've EVER been a part of, and the mods and management have no qualms letting actual fans fend for themselves and giving the trolls freedom to annoy and infest every thread with their crap. I'd rather the moderators used the powers granted them and did their f*cking jobs. Check my pie count, I bring a LOT of quality articles and news to this board's attention and try to contribute to the threads but I'm EXTREMELY FED UP with having to deal with people like TRD and Grits just because Zod prefers flamewars than actual content. And don't give me crap about an alt account, has no one ever heard of an IP-ban? One fell swoop and their retarded selves are too stupid to work a proxy.


Check my pie count brah.

I'd love to see links to the posts you quoted below. And to be honest, there are facts out there that support Moore being better than Cam last year, not that any of you could take your tongue out of Cam's asshole long enough to have a real discussion about it but hey, it's out there. I also don't bring up Moore in the wrong forum.

I went on a 3 week ban from wanting to crub stomp TRd. So it's better to just ignore him and move on.


LOL. Did ya buddy? You took a ban? Gosh your tough. Are you, like, from the ghetto too?

Grits, you have just as much a shtick as any other troll. You try to dress it up by pretending you're "fair-minded" and pleading a persecution complex, but then you work at phrasing many of your posts to imply as much of an insult as you can while still pretending to not be a troll.
I liked what Dalton did as much as anyone. I am a huge fan of young quarterbacks, and I hope that RG3 achieves everything that Redskins fans hope for him, because that franchise needs to finally have a franchise QB. BUT, when people like you openly come to a Panthers forum and talk up your own prospect and imply his ascendency will eclipse Cam's, and do so using by discarding all the "fair-minded" logic you used to talk up Dalton and Brees and whatever other flavor-of-the-moth QB you want to use to denigrate Cam in comparison, then you are nothing but a troll and should be called out and treated as such.
Don't play both sides of the topic; either regard all quarterbacks with the same logic or admit you're a troll and get the hell out.
Panther fans come here because we're fans; if we wanted outsiders taking a poo on our parade every other thread we'd go to a fuging Saints** board to talk.
