Honestly, this is a very winnable game. People may look at box scores and see blowouts, but literally everything went against us against Pittsburgh and Baltimore.
The 12 men penalty, a bounce into Steve Smith's hands when his route had him no where even near the play and he broke off, multiple awful spots by the refs that lead to 1st and 10's instead of 3rd and shorts for the opposing offense. Everything went wrong.
I'm starting to get nervous that Ron is becoming the kind of coach that scapegoats certain players instead of laying in to everybody that deserves it. I mean, our oline coach shouldn't have a job, and neither should anyone on the oline outside of Kalil who btw also looks like poo out there.
Yet I never hear him talk about how they are ass and need to step up, or see him reaming them on the sidelines.
Granted I'm not at the games though so maybe he is and I just don't see it.
I truly believe the Steve Smith Vs. Dave Gettleman debate has people on sides like Republicans vs. Democrats and gets people as equally fired up as politics do. I know me and a certain other member of the community were going at it, and it's only ever on the subject of Steve Smith Vs. Dave Gettleman.
Hopefully now that Baltimore week is over the subject will come up less and less, because that person and I have come to a peaceful resolution.
If you agree with it then why call a thread stating the OL shouldn't collect their paychecks "dumb"?
That was my point.
My point was that Zod just told everyone not to make moronic threads. We have all been here long enough to know that when he says that he means emotional, knee jerk, reactionary threads that should really be in the gameday thread as singular posts.
So even though I agreed with your base material that the offensive line is complete dogshit, the fact that other peoples opinions get deleted if they start a reactionary thread and a mod gets to start his own reactionary thread wasn't kosher.
And to be honest had you stated in the gameday thread that the offensive line should forfeit their paychecks, me and many others would have pied your post in agreement and the world would have moved on and all this ridiculous would have been avoided.
And this thread here would still be on page one. That's all.
In the end we all generally want the same thing. No need to be at each other's throats.
Truth be told though, nothing is going to improve if we simply lie to ourselves and blindly suck off management. Gettleman fugged up. Simple as that. Is it the end of the season? No, but if we are going to salvage it he needs to man up and admit his mistake and make any moves necessary to improve this poo fest.
And this is a topic worth discussing.
I believe Gettleman fuged up with this bullshit offensive line, but did not IMO, fug up in regards to Steve Smith and the WR corps. But that typically makes me a Gettleman homer and turns the discussion sideways rather quickly.
I think it says a lot more about you than it does about me that you think every post I make is directed at you, or that I have a personal beef with you in any way, shape or form.
I enjoy your posts and voted for you as a mod for Christ sake.
We just have very different opinions on Steve Smith and Panthers management, so any topic related to those things seems to escalate quickly.
I'm sorry if you are raging on your end of the internet every time you see me quote your posts. When I see you do it, I open it and reply while drinking a beer, eating a sandwich, and waiting for my buddy to finish his turn in our game of pool. And that's about as far as it goes.
And trolling?? You have got to be kidding me. I state my opinions. I don't do it to be contradictory or to get a rise out of people. If the people that read them get so pissed off that it ruins their day, well that is on them to start re-evaluating things.
I'm just trying to quell that raging boner you have for me and Gettles.
Let me know if it lasts for more than four hours.
I tried to reply to you in your awful thread, and ask that you admit it was an emotional thread creation, and that it was a mistake, and we could move forward amicably. You obviously agreed it was a bad idea, as you deleted the thread yourself.
And then you come in here and start picking fights and calling names, which is unnecessary.
