#2557596 Official Panthers - Saints Gameday Thread

Not that I think the play calling has been great, but I love how people are like "run it Shula you loser"

Then he runs it and the same people are like "stop being so conservative you butt pirate!"

#2536748 This loss can only help

Posted by The_Mango55 on 08 December 2013 - 11:48 PM

I'm not someone who believes stuff like "the streak was bound to end so end it now" or that "this loss was good for us"

But I also am not calling the season because of one away loss to a good team. Perspective boys, get you some. We are a good team that lost to another good team. We didn't lose as badly as the Saints did last week and they came back pretty well.

We going to score a 15 point field goal?


Nope, so basically both plays would not get us the lead, thus we needed to score points any way we could. Early in the 3rd cutting the lead to 2 scores with no 2pt conversion required is an acceptable outcome, and Gano has been pretty consistent.


Basing the process on outcome is a terrible strategy.

Are people really suggesting we go for it on 4th and 5 now?

#2531137 Gross Love

While I liked that article about the name "Riverboat Ron" it was not exactly what I expected when I clicked on the link, considering this thread is supposed to be about Jordan Gross.


Everything I know about Gross I learned from "This is Gross" and from this gif



#2527650 New Power Rankings Out

Posted by The_Mango55 on 04 December 2013 - 01:35 PM

Not really, because I wasn't. There is a difference between productivity and potential. Everyone is operating on the assumption that they know what the problem was--I think I do--hear me out

Maturity. We had a young coach, a young QB, a young DC, and (last year) a young OC and an unproven one this year.

Cam was not playing up to his potential (2-14) in games we were leading in the 4th. Rivera was not coaching up to his potential--playing it safe and never giving his talent a chance to shine.

I was not wrong. When we started winning, everyone noted the changes I had been asking for---more leadership from Cam, better game management from Rivera.

The line is worse now than when we were losing. We have the same receivers. What changed? I was not wrong, but I am happy that I am no longer right about that stuff.

You were not wrong that we needed to execute better and now we are, but everyone could see that so your observation was nothing special.

However you were absolutely wrong in thinking that we should have ever considered blowing up the team. Sure we were not playing up to our potential and that was bad, but it's far better to play worse than you can and do poorly than to play as well as you can and still suck. Close losses can be turned to wins with minor adjustments, wholesale firings are unnecessary.

So to sum up, the people who were preaching patience with the current regime and insisted we were very close were right. The people who were insisting that we needed to start over were wrong.

Not that it matters in this game, but shouldn't we still have officially "won" the challenge since it was a fumble, even though it wasn't clear we had possession? We challenged that the ball was down by contact after all.

#2517240 Cam Newton is a pescetarian

Posted by The_Mango55 on 28 November 2013 - 11:11 AM

I heard that on "This is Gross" a few months back when he had Cam on.

#2512230 Alright guys, so what have you been doing to keep this win streak going?

Posted by The_Mango55 on 24 November 2013 - 11:31 PM

I don't have any superstitions


I'm afraid if I developed any we would start losing







#2510132 Panthers Pull It Out... Free PIE!

I want some damn pie!

We are the best!

I almost filled the back of my pants on that Wallace play

Then I did fill the front of my pants after the sack

#2499293 It is time for me and others to eat crow

Posted by The_Mango55 on 19 November 2013 - 03:34 PM

meh, pats had been stuffing the run all day... we caught them by surprise and got a critical first down.

a call is as good as its outcome IMO

I think he is talking about the play where Tolbert ran all the way to the outside and didn't even get turned upfield before getting tackled for a 2 yard loss.

I didn't get it at all.

#2497619 Looks like Ramsay didn't show up tonight

Posted by The_Mango55 on 19 November 2013 - 01:49 AM

Well I thought it was funny and topical :(



#2497333 Pats fans will bitch about the last call for sure

Posted by The_Mango55 on 19 November 2013 - 01:00 AM

I think "Kuech Rule" has a better ring to it, especially considering the team it was against.
