We are all idiots....

29 posts in this topic

Every preseason, and I am old enough to say I have been around for all of them, we all sit and speculate as to who will be what and what will be who...

We are more than ignorant...... It’s just the truth. (It’s the nature of being a fan) We take the little images we gather from a 2 hour practice and do our best to formulate how we expect a 16 game season to unfold...

We have not a clue...

I remember what it was like to be a Panther fan and not even really know the names of the players (it was much more fun then), now as a fan I can name everyone, understand what position they play, and even as a coach myself have knowledge of what they are responsible for on the field....

I miss the simple days...

The truth is this-- these practices are for the public. The true work wont come until about 9 days from now when it is all behind closed doors. The coaching staff is being very cautious to make sure our guys don’t get hurt, and the playbook is being hidden to ensure folks who are pretending to be fans cannot record what really matters....

So in the end, other than the individual drills, don’t worry about offense vs defense and scoring...

What we will see for the next 4 weeks will be only what the coaching staff is comfortable to show the rest of the NFL, cause they sure is hell are watching...

Point= Don’t take everything you see in training camp so seriously....

The objective is to get everyone to week 1 healthy, and then let the playbook get to work... No matter what, or how great you think our team is, it won’t matter because the only ones who can determine that will be on the field week one.....

So just breath... ;) and enjoy!!!!!!

You also have to take in consideration that this board isn't filled with sane, rational and patient people. As a matter of fact it's for the people who care so much they have to put their thoughts into writing. Think about it, most if not all the people here are one post or topic away from going bat #$## crazy. Even the most sane and rational posters of us are one "Steve Smith is a thug" or "trade D-stew for a probowl CB and DT " topic from going postal. Insert a few "personal" attacks and watch the comedy ensue.

    • I don't feel like we're a sleeper team. We are just mercurial as a franchise- up, down, and in the middle. I really do not know what to expect this year. As it's been said, the O-line is a big question mark. Our interior is good, but the tackle spot is a mystery. I wasn't and am still not high on the Lil Kalil signing, and not because of the contract. He has declined every year since his rookie year. Am I suppose to believe that he has really been chronically injured this whole time and now that he is here with Ryan he is suppose to magically be healthy and perform? I'm not saying it isn't possible- I'm not saying he's def going to suck either. I just have no clue. I think it's a big time gamble from Gman. I hope it works out. And I desperately want to be proved wrong about it too. I hope he fills the hole that's been there since Gross left as a long term solution. And the other thing that worries me is the coaching staff. Everyone talks about Shula but I'm not high on RR. He took zero accountability in his post season presser- as apposed to Gman who acknowledged his mistakes. I've never really liked him- I'm really wondering if Riverboat was just fools gold. He just feels like Fox 2.0- don't think he can get us a Lombardi- which is sad because I feel like our roster can. Again, I hope I'm wrong about this. These two things plus our division- The NFCS will be a dogfight this year. 
    • Yeah we fell asleep..the offensive like ducked and the secondary ducked til Bradbury and the other kid stepped up.. but season was done.. need a healthy o-Lind this year and execute or these new weapons are pointless
