They should totally start off practice tomorrow with the nike commercial of the fat kid running to get them pumped up lmao

For some reason I really like that commercial. I applaud Nike for actually airing it. Wouldn't be surprised if it get pulled because someone's feeling gets hurt and people protest.

I don't think he was necessarily a 'key cog' per se, wasn't he a backup?

Yep. But that linebacking corps was fuging stout.

backing up: Wilber Marshall, Mike Singletary and Otis Wilson. Pretty strong.

.....Flashback 2 years ago.....

Reporter: "Coach Fox, it seemed the players lacked intensity today in practice. Any particular reason why?"

Fox: "It is what it is sometimes."

Oh how the direction of this franchise has turned. RivERA

And usually that answer would be immediately followed up by Fox announcing he's breaking camp like 2 weeks early

then we wondered why we're getting blown out week one.

I always heard "You only play as good as you practice". I like it and another one was aplicable "Without discipline there can be no freedon" . I think RR fits into a lot of thoses cliches, sure looking foward to this season!!!

Goooo Panthers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The towelboy and bus driver were key cogs to that championship team.

    • 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
