Mr. Scot

Backfield speaks of "broken promises"...

Ready to run after year of broken promises

“Last year was a lot of broken promises, shall I say,” Tolbert said. “But now we have a new offensive coordinator and things are starting to come to light.”

Tolbert signed with Carolina in 2012 after his first four seasons in San Diego, after he says he was told he would run the football and also catch balls out of the backfield as a hybrid-type back in two tight-end sets.

He finished with 183 rushing yards, his lowest total since his second year in the league, and went from 54 catches and 433 yards with the 2011 Chargers to 27 catches for 268 yards with the Panthers.

The more I hear people speak after his departure, the more I think Rob Chudzinski wasn't exactly the most popular guy in the Panthers locker room.

So...valid point or sour grapes from someone who didn't get the ball as much as he thought he should?

Maybe he didn't reach those rushing numbers because there's too many starting running backs on this team and it's a passing league

I'm not sure how to take that. He had to know the carries were going to be split 4 ways.

I wouldn't sum up a 2 year tenure that saw us ranking top ten in offense both seasons as having his head up his ass

    • There are literally MILLIONS of Muslims living in this country.  You know them.  They are your neighbor, your co-workers, your fellow students. The vast majority of them live peacefully.  And I would point out that Christian America are bombing them and killing them too. I'm not saying we are the problem, but we kill them for killing us so they kill us for killing them and it is just a never-ending cycle of retaliations. When we celebrate killing 30 ISIS people  here but to them they are just family and friends.  To us they are evil doers on the other side of the world.  To them it just a fraternity of brotherhood. I don't know what the answer is.  It is FUBAR.  But don't villainize a religion over the actions of a few.  The "average" Muslim isn't the people carrying out these attacks anymore than the average white is a white supremacist attacking minorities. Compassion and empathy isn't weakness it is strength.
