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

    • Trump is making a bad situation worse with his penny pinching ways to showboat to his supporters here in the USA.  He was speaking out of his ass during the campaign, but he should know better by now than to continue with that sort of pandering to the lowest common denominator. There is no other alliance more critical to the safety of the US than NATO and keeping the peace in that region of the world is infinitely cheaper for the American taxpayer than the cost of coming to their military rescue for a third time.   However, the ramifications go well beyond the unimaginable destructiveness of another world war.   Simply giving the impression to our European allies that the USA cannot be counted on for support weakens the hand of Europe when dealing with Russia on economic and political policies as well.  A USA less than fully committed to Europe's defense will draw them further into Russia's orbit of influence.  That will be unfortunate as our European bases are very important to the projection of our military power around the globe.  Just don't act like the USA is blameless in where we are today.
