Good post, Zod. And 5-6 years ago a post like that would have had me excited but at this point I am just waiting for this team to find a way to lose. That is a shitty way to spend time being a fan. It seems we either have a mental break down or a physical break down or both every week. Then we get to hear the excuses and how things will change next week. Rivera needs to have this team ready to kick some ass the minute they run out of the tunnel. No excuses this week.

 

This.  If the team shows anything less than 110% foaming at the mouth then we need to start the coaching search.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- If you're wondering why Carolina Panthers wide receiver Domenik Hixonwas on the inactive roster for Sunday's opener against the Seattle Seahawks, you're not alone. 



 
Edwards
 
Hixon

Hixon wants to know, too. 

The Panthers signed the former New York Giants player during the offseason to add depth to a thin wide-receiving corps, to possibly be the No. 3 receiver behind Steve Smith and Brandon LaFell

After dealing with a hamstring injury for more than a month in training camp, Hixon caught three passes for 44 yards in the preseason finale against Pittsburgh and seemed good to go for Week 1. 

"I felt good,'' Hixon said Wednesday. "Yeah, I felt good.'' 

So why didn't he play? 

"I wasn't told why, so I can't answer that for you,'' Hixon said. "I didn't ask. All I can do is practice throughout the week, show them I am ready to play and keep on working hard.''

i've got plantar fascitis right now. i got it towards the end of july and its still hurting when i wake up and when i spend even an hour walking around. it's a frustrating and very nagging injury that takes a long time to heel. in the literature i got from the doctors office it said that 80% may be pain free in about a year. my wife thought that was funny for some reason. point is, he's not going to be playing anywhere near 100% if he plays, at least not for very long. i think their secondary as is will be easy to exploit and even if byrd is there and able to play, he's just one guy. throw to someone that isn't being covered by him.

 

i think our secondary will still be a weak link, but i think that manuel will be easier to pressure and rattle than wilson and i hope he does try to go vertical because it's quite likely he'll be forcing some throws that will be result in bad/ill-timed throws that our DB will find easy to capitalize on, which is one thing they are good at doing....capitalizing on mistakes the QB makes.

 

I've got it, too.  When it's acting up it sticks around for months and I limp for hours after getting out of bed.  Any strenuous activity causes it to act up as well.  He definitely won't be at 100% if he plays...

I was talking to a guy yesterday who noticed my panthers tag. I asked him if he were fan and his response was "No I just love watching them play, it's amazing how they find a way to give games away, I watch just to see how they will lose."

"Bro, do you even lift." Works every time in any situation. Don't be afraid to use it, unless you yourself don't lift. Then you're just fuged.

Now that's a truly pathetic human being.

I finally could rewatch the Seahawks game today during lunch.  The worst part is that they honestly played one of the better games they have the past 2 years. 

 

Hats off to the Seahawks.  The Deangelo fumble was huge, but he had a good game outside of that and the Panthers defense, while playing a great game overall, couldn't get the ball back to close the game.

 

I honestly think if the Panthers execute better on the field they will win Sunday.  The offense was not explosive, but they were very balanced in respect to what we've seen the last 2 years.

 

If Steve Smith is right about the Panthers being a playoff caliber team, then Sunday is a game a playoff team wins.  Bottom line.

interesting to know about the issues that the Bills are having.  It looks like they are a team that has a great many question marks, even at positions that probably should be solid (like the secondary).  I hope our coaches can create a game plan to take advantage of this.  I'd like to think they can, but RR's track record doesn't give me a lot of confidence.  Looks like it will be a case of the running game opening up the play action downfield passing game.  if the O-line can hold their own, we should be able to move the ball.  I'm guessing that the winner of this game will need to score a minimum of 21 points.  It might take a defensive TD for us to get there.

 

Watched most of the Pats-Jets game last night and WOW!  NE offense was brutal.  They had 9 straight incomplete passes and probably at least 5 obvious drops by WRs.  It wasn't so much that the Jets D was causing problems, the passing game was just not clicking and the announcers were saying that the same poo was happening against Buffalo.  Credit to their coaching staff for pulling out two close wins under the circumstances, but this NE offense is a shadow of its former self with Welker and others.

 

My point is...if that offense can put up 23 on this Buffalo team on the road, i like our chances (based on potential of course, not on what we saw in week one).  Even so...NE is never really serious about running the ball, but we are.  Buffalo hasn't faced a power running game like ours.  It was pretty good last week.  Should be better this week.  We just need that added dimension of the deep threat.  Ginn could have a big game.

 

Another thing is that RR seems to be a slightly better coach on the road in these conditions.  I think that bodes well for us this week.
