OMG I SEE WGAT YOU DID THERE!!!!

The black/white thing!!!

Too bad Bird and Jordan were never remotely close to playing against one another, and played in two totally different eras.

 

 

NBA history for 400 Alex, please.  They played on the Dream Team together in 92 man.  Jordan was a rookie in like 84, obviously they played together.  Plus, one of the best NES games ever:

Some of these comments are rather funny considering nearly everyone on this forum at that time were literally creaming their pants at the prospect of gettiung Luck. There was little short of god-like status for the guy at that time.

 

Suddenly he decided to stay in school, which means we were not getting him...and its "oh, he isnt that great" comments by some of the same posters who couldnt floss their teeth with his pubes fast enough. Even now some are still bitter about the guy.

 

As another poster said...Cam is our quarterback, and regardless of whether Luck is more/less of a leader, or more/less of a player...its not gonna change, but I cant help but laugh at the folks who were all over him before, yet crap on him now simply because he isnt ours, or heaven forbid...has some tape that proves he wasnt the second coming of Christ people here thought he would be pre-draft.

This argument is tired. Panther fans should be free to give other teams qbs hell whenever they want.

Please kill this thread mods. The sole purpose of it is to be inflammatory and insulting to the Panthers.

It should at least go to smack.

This person doesn't dislike Luck. This person dislikes the way today's sports media goes about still defining these players by categorizing them and then dictating to us how to perceive them based on nothing more than stereotyping, biases, and very controlled levels of scrutiny. Even worst is the level today's media will go to force me into buying their false perception of these players by constantly using buzz words such as "elite," "franchise" and even "BUST." And when they are not actually using those words directly on today's QBs, they are automatically aligning them with the success or failures of other QBs so as to create a mental picture of how they want us to see them. That is why Cam was automatically aligned with Vince Young and Jamarcus Russell. The two most famous black QBs who were made to epitomize extreme failure among QBs. Was the alignment intentional? YES! Even worst is the falsity behind the perception of those two QBs that many still blindly believe and push to this day. 

 

I am also forced to categorize today's QBs. Despite the false belief that racism in the NFL is dead, today's QBs are still broken down, albeit subtle, into two categories, black and white or the more modern terms "mobile" QBs, vs. "traditional" QBs. But since it seems okay to have some mobility, many of today's white QBs also get credited with having different degrees of mobility. The difference is, with the black QBs it's made to be seen as their first instinct, while the whites, it's an option that goes along with their other "natural talent." Interestingly enough, I am never made to see today's black QBs as "traditional." It's like a sacred  image only reserved for white QBs.  

 

Is Luck good? YES! But so is Dalton, Cam, Russel, Colin, and many others who are not made to be seen as good as him by design. To pick and choose what and how we're to see today's QBs based on very selective and measure narratives screams CONTROLLING! IMO...

 

When Cam's name comes up and folks like Mike Mayock, Charlie Casserly, and a whole list of others so called football experts, an extreme majority of them white,  go out of their way to demean, pick apart, and humiliate this kid, while forcing him to be and do whatever they want him too because they can; and because they refuse to respect his natural gifts and what he brings to the game of football, sends a very loud and clear message to someone like myself..."We are in CONTROL" and can do still treat these NFL players as we please; including invite blatant discrimination against hm. 

 

On top of that, those same predominately white, so called football experts will turn around and not only try to align Luck with Cam in the talent and athletics department but go out of their way to elevate him pass the the other white and more successful QBs, who they themselves hold in very high regard as the best in the league, by doing nothing more than controlling how he's being projected.  Why? Because they CAN.

 

Also, I will not kid myself, the NFL is still the way it is because sports media knows that many of today's football fans still want to hold onto their prejudices, biases, and discriminating views of these players. And someone as average a QB as Luck being elevated to appear as the next coming of the greatest QB ever by today's sports media, is a whole lot more easier to digest than that of someone like Cam. Many of you would much rather debate Luck's greatness against those of his own kind than have to admit that someone like Cam, and or Russell is just as good if not better than him. That attitude is reflected right here on this site.

You didn't know a potential #1 pick could talk to an NFL owner?

 

Dude, seriously, just give it a rest.

 

Of course, but I did mention specifically parents. Not just parent but parent of draftee who chooses to stay in school. I'm wondering if Mariota's parents were on the phone explaining to the Texans his reasoning for staying in school.
