PANTHERS @ BEARS Official Game Thread

Is it actually an excuse if it's what actually happened. I'm sorry, but on my feed I saw Smitty fall and Cam had already throw the ball right to where he would have been in the timing route had he not fallen. Maybe I saw a game from some other dimension, maybe I went through a black hole last night....*shurg*....

Announcers had the same opinion. Timing-based route that Smith didn't make the cut on because he fell. Cam threw it where he thought Smitty would be. Not really anyone's fault, unless you fault Smith for falling down. More just a very unfortunate play that the Bears capitalized on because their play call happened to be perfect to pick the ball off. I imagine the Bears CB was as dumbfounded to have a pick that easy as Cam was to throw one like that.

no its the coaches fault he threw that pick six

You can't argue with the nuthuggers dude. Some think its everyone else's fault but CamS, but if we look at it objectively and watch his demeanor the guy does not have "it". He is a self absorbed ass.

Won't win games when you have to settle for FG's time and time again.

We don't know how to finish games.

That falls on Rivera. On the rare occasion that this team plays well, it only plays well until the 4th quarter. Then it finds every possible way to lose. This team represents the polar opposite of the franchises that find ways to win.

It's like someone said in an earlier post... it's really easy to tell who on this forum has football knowledge and who doesn't.

Defense just doesn't have the talent to cover for any mistakes. You put a determine offense with the momentum our coaching staff handed them against them, we don't have a chance.

Offense looked much better this week in our first week back in system similar to last years. Had a couple balls bounce against us and needed to close out some drives but ultimately put up enough points to win. Defense couldn't come up when it counted.

I am not blaming cam for that pick.

However, this team (coaches, cam, etc) are so far from clutch that we can't even see clutch.

They just can't make plays when they are needed,

This team has the talent to be a good team. But their psyche is broken right now. No one has been able to step up and make a play.

The pick 6 (no one's real fault)....Smitty's dropped pass on the TD....the 2-3 missed int's early on the game. We just can't make the plays that we really need to.

Sometimes it helps if you expect the Panthers to lose, no matter what the score is going into the 4th quarter. That's when we play our worst football, as we did again today.

I rushed home from work and the score was 19-13 and when i got the tv on it was 20-19 I was thinking what in the hell happened in 20 seconds? The Answer is......... The Panthers

Anyone blaming Cam on that pick 6 is a fugin idiot. You don't even have to know football to know it wasn't his fault. At this point comments like that seem more like an awful attempt at trollin.

    • Hello fellow huddles. I've been a Panther fan since 2003 and usually have had the ability to watch all the games until I started at a major retail chain store in 2016.  I'm also at the bottom of the totem pole there so I have the worst scheduling hours  (ex. I have to often do a late shift one day and be back at work for an early shift the next morning , always work weekends) and 99 percent of the time I'm scheduled to work on Sundays. Apparently there's already a bunch of people in my department and elsewhere who already have Sundays off as part of their availability, so I'm guessing this is one of the reasons why I'm ALWAYS scheduled to work a late shift every Sunday it seems which is pretty much a guarantee I will miss the games this season. I've got maybe 4 days of paid time off accumulated so I guess I could pick a few games out of the season to be off on. Logic tells me that I'd probably be better served to let that keep stacking and just take a week of PTO vacation in July or something but it just sucks ass being a huge football fan and miss most of the action for the first time in my life.  I pretty much had to take this job at least in the short term last year, or just take the job that was willing to hire me the soonest honestly.  Its most certainly my fault for majoring in a dumb ass unemployable field of study in college , so I won't waste time bemoaning my living situation at this point. I'm just trying to figure out of theres anyway to at least have Sundays off. I'm guessing I could actually change my availability with the company but that's going to murder my weekly hours , I'm already part time if I miss any given day during the week I get significantly less money for rent/food/other poo I need.  I live in a small ish town in eastern NC right now. 95 percent of the jobs out here seem to be at retail/fast food oriented . I've applied to alot of jobs closer to major areas like Raleigh , Durham for the past half year but no dice so far. At this point, I'm not even sure if its possible for me to get a non retail job. Its pretty much the only thing that I have experience doing and I'm 26 so.. part of me wishes I just went to a branch of the military like alot of my high school classmates did, or gone to some trade school, or did some on the job training for a technical career out of the gate from high school, but you can say hindsight is 20/20 as the cliche goes.  The immediate suggestions would be to DVR / Record the games which isn't an option for me , can't afford expensive  100+ dollar TV packages when thats  ten percent of my monthly income , I make ends meet with this job and thats right about it.  For whatever reason I just assume that the average huddle is middle aged with a decent steady job and income living near a big city haha. Its just my imagination obviously, and what I observe through looking at pictures people post and stories they tell. Even if you don't really have much input on my senario, let me ask you this, was there ever a time in your 20s or just a time in your life where you just didn't have the ability / means to watch the games even though you still considered yourself a fan at the time? 
    • What can I make of Cameron Artis-Payne? What I don't think I can make - barring injuries - is a spot for him on this year's Panthers roster. He may surprise, but I'm not expecting it.
