we need to create our own luck

 

 

this.  wasnt it last year that we lost the first 10 coin flips against all odds?  This team has to work harder than every other team because of bad juju.

It was 17 coin flips.

 

Around a 1 in 150000 chance of happening.

 

 

Unreal

There may be something to say about all the other games we lost by means of execution, but the ending of that first Atlanta game was such an improbable kick in the dick that it'll probably never happen again

 

I love the optimism but the problem with getting kicked in the dick is you never see it coming.  I think the comment is spot on though.

Black cat mascot, ridiculously bad luck for a while now, and 0-13 (17 if you count the preseason I guess) on coin flips.

 

Well it's unlucky year number 13 (2013), it's time for us to fuging shine with that bad luck black cat mascot.  It's also our 10-year anniversary since our Super Bowl year, let's do this poo.

 

Oh yeah, not sure if anyone has said anything about this yet... but we've historically had our best seasons after a 7-9 year.  All four of our winning seasons where we finished 12-4, 11-5, 11-5, and 12-4 we were 7-9 the year before.

Somewhat agree but we are summing all these things up to coin tosses and they are not.  The Falcon game, as improbable as it is was not that big of a statistical anomaly.  Fact is he was out of position and the play was pretty much indefensible.   So based on that you have an elite NFL quarterback playing catch with an elite NFL WR.  Odds are pretty high they can make a connection. 

 

The point is we lost these close games because for multiple reasons we have not had the personnel, coaches, etc.. to execute.   Hope that changes

I'm gonna have to disagree. Horrible play on the ball. You should never be back pedalling when the ball is in the air. Turn and run, then attack the ball at its highest point - catch it or knock it down.

 

Naka was in great position to make a play.

Ryan was just chucking the ball as far as he could throw hoping that White could run underneath it.  That means the safety had all day to get into position back there and pick that pass off.  Nakamaura totally misjudged that ball.

    • First, let me say that I pretty much only watch the NBA during the playoffs (or when I'm absolutely bored and channel surfing, which is very very seldom). I am really a fan of players and coaches and not necessarily teams except for the Spurs. That being said, I do support the Hornets as they are a North Carolina team---the "home" team, if you will.  The problem is I don't see any way that they will credibly compete for a championship (because they really haven't come close in franchise history). Gone are the days of Grand Ma Ma and Dell Curry, but even then one would be hard pressed to really believe. Unless they happen to draft a legitimate, and I mean legitimate, superstar that wants to be here, I can't see it. I go from year to year in June saying "Perhaps this is the year," but reality sets in during December.  Well, perhaps this is the year that they at least become credible. Monk was arguably the best pure shooter in the draft. Can he create his own shot---break 'em down and break some ankles to be a legitimate point guard? We will see. Bacon may be underrated. We will see. Does the other Superman in Charlotte have enough juice to make a credible run and get the Hornets over the hump. I don't know.  It's just hard to believe that the Hornets will actually become truly relevant when you look at their history.
    • Also, Greg is counting 20M against the cap over the next two...that's a big amount for a TE, even as great as he is.  This year he has a bit of leverage. Important piece of the passing and now running game. High cap number, and we are trying to free up space to sign the G's. Extremely healthy past.   He's just leaning on DG to extend him, and I think that we likely do....although it's not imperative.
