Times Panthers lived up to the optimism in week 1

62 posts in this topic

Was the 06 season the one with Keyshawn, the peter king kiss of death, the Smitty hamstring injury, the Gamble punt-return debacle vs the vikes, deangelo's ankle smashed by the browns ending his rookie season, etc? That old chestnut?

Maybe I'm a doofy homer but I have high expectations almost every year. The victories are sweeter and the the losses are more painful. Why should I not ride the NFL roller coaster over and over again.

I guess I'm not cool enough to hang out with many of you, because I too like being optimistic about each new season. When the year turns to crap, as they have had an unfortunate tendency to do of late, there is plenty of time for hair tearing and wailing. So I think I'll just enjoy the sunny side of life a while longer. You can never be sure when The Darkness will rear its ugly head again.

I agree that this Tampa game is a bit of a trap. They will be motivated, and improved from last year. That being said, I think Schiano is going to make a horrible NFL coach and that we SHOULD be able to handle them fairly easy.

In the past....looked like the Panthers were not prepared for game 1. they sometimes looked lost.

As Zod said, did not happen last year. I do not expect it to happen this year either.

    •     Now don't take this the wrong way, but....are you two nuts? Now, if the kid didn't have those injury issues, maybe I can get on board. But man, those petite WRs with injury issues in college? Those guys scare the living poo outta me.   Now get me a Ross clone and I'm on board. Someone for the slot that could actually, you know, scare a Defense. Now that would tickle my giddy like nobodies bidness.
    • IMO, it is obvious, to me anyhow, that the kid has matured. He has taken heat for standing up for what he believes, and has done it the right way. No snarky comments to the press. Keeping his head down, and working toward a goal. He has brought to light injustices not only in our country, but in others as well. His foundation just contributed over a million and a half dollars to the Simolian relief effort.   All that is admirable to be sure. And he can play football as well, or better, than enough QBs to earn himself a shot at a job.   It is not the football side of his life that is keeping him off teams. Almost every team hates distractions. It is just how it is. And Kaep is a walking distraction at this point in time.   I would like to add that another thought could be that at this point in FA, no one is being signed. OK, maybe a better way to put that is, FA spending has slowed considerably.   If teams head to Training Camp and he is still unemployed. Then I may start believing in conspiracies.
    • lol lol lol fahey watched every snap of every game and graded the quarterbacks as he saw it. kaepernick is a fine game manager who was let down repeatedly by perhaps the shittiest set of skill position players in the league and oh yeah he can run like the wind. you've got to be pretty stupid to think this is anything but a quarterback starved league blackballing a serviceable quarterback all because he had the audamndacity to protest racism in america and tbh i've not seen one post itt that would cause me to even begin to question that.
