#2877276 Name one small tweak to make the game even better

Posted by Smithers on 05 August 2014 - 11:51 AM

Might have been mentioned....but I am tired of offsetting penalties.  It just doesn't make sense that a 15 yard personal foul and a 5 yard illegal contact offset each other.  Maybe take the net difference of the two penalties? 




#2734321 D-Will in shock over loss of receiving corp

D-will apparently can't hold his tongue any better than he can hold onto the football in clutch situations.  




#2710761 Has this week calmed your Gettle-fears?

Posted by Smithers on 21 March 2014 - 02:59 PM

So...you mean players do actually want to play here? 

 

The meltdown on this board over the last few days was epic, and pathetic.  "OMG...we just let all our average to below average players walk.  Our GM sucks!"  

 

SMH.  

 

Gettleman knows what he is doing.  And he is doing it marvelously!  




#2710223 Smitty pulled over during phone interview

Posted by Smithers on 21 March 2014 - 11:47 AM

why do we still have threads about this guy

 

if you're no longer a panther then you're dead to me

 

It is quite apparent that Smitty is dead to you...I mean with you opening a threat about him and all.

#2697267 Nicks officially a Colt per Schefter

Posted by Smithers on 15 March 2014 - 06:58 AM

News flash dude. Comparing Tom Brady to Cam is way off ain't it. Cam ain't even in Brady league. Brady is an elite QB. Cam is good, but no where near Tom Brady good. Brady has always made avg or below WRs look good. Also Brady had good oline and a running game last year unlike us. It does take but a few seconds for Tom to pick you a part. Cam is not that good yet. Cam needs some big time WR with talent to help him and a good oline to protect him. So there is no way can compare Cam to Brady.

 

Good grief.  I never compared Cam to Brady, nor did I compare the Panthers to the Pats.  I clearly and simply made a point that its not like we are the first team ever to rely on rookie wide receivers.  Also...please see my reply to another uniformed posters post on this matter...Brady did not have a good o-line last year.  He was sacked just three less times than Cam. 




#2696457 Nicks officially a Colt per Schefter

Of course it doesn't. We may just field the '85 Bears defense and need the offense to kneel on the ball. BUT that is not what teams should strive for if they wish to continue to reach the playoffs, and compete for division titles.

 

Banking on a WR core (especially when Tom Brady is not throwing to said core) with no well-known members is highly ballsy but more likely idiocy-if you are trying to reach the playoffs.

 

Again, it is not like we fielded a great group of WRs and then suddenly they become unavailable throughout the season. It may be our strategy to start the season with no-well known WRs--and presumably some of those WRs would be rookies.  

 

Yep...we should strive for more.  Offensive firepower has been missing from this team for a long time.  I guess that's what happens when we continue to hire defensive minded coaches.  I hope we surround Cam with weapons.  I hope some of the guys on our roster are ready to step up and can be those weapons.  Especially since we cannot afford to sign any known threats. 




#2693065 What the future holds and how can we replace what we lost?

Posted by Smithers on 13 March 2014 - 08:10 PM

Finally, some rationale.  You would think we just lost 5 pro bowlers.  We lost guys that people on this very board refused to get excited about when we signed them last offseason.  Yes, Gross retiring hurts.  But Mitchell, Ginn, and Captain???  C'mon now.  Mitchell was energetic and brought a great attitude to the game.  But his coverage skills are lacking.  When opposing QB's had more than 3 seconds to throw, Mitchell's man would get free.  Ginn is fast, but dropped a lot of balls.  He is average at best, and very replaceable.  Captain made some great plays last season, but also made a bunch of really bad ones.  When not in the slot, he is below average. 

 

It sucks losing Smitty...I love the guy, and am just as sad and pissed off as everyone else.  But how many times did people on the Huddle gripe and complain about those dropped balls, fumbles, stupid penalties, etc.?  Defenses did not have a tough time taking Smith out of games this year.  Sure, part of that was due to the lack of another threat.  But part of that was also due to the fact that Smitty does not have the speed and hops he used to. 

 

Our core is still intact.  We need to work on 3 positions...CB, OT, and WR.  Most teams in the NFL would be happy if they only had major holes to fill at three positions. 




#2614573 NFL Total Access discusses Kaepernick mocking Cam

Posted by Smithers on 14 January 2014 - 06:21 AM

Billick and others say Kaepernick appears insecure by mocking Cam.  He also throws in a cheap shot about him wearing his hat sideways.

worst coaching decision of Ron's career.  I just do not get it.  Even if we don't convert we hold them to a field goal and it is still a 1 score game.  Just stupid Ron.

OMG you guys need to chill.  You sound like a bunch of freakin 2 year olds after your mommy took your candy away.  It is 6-0 after a quarter and a half.  It could easily be 21-0 now, if not worse.  Our Defense is balling out...give them credit and hope the offense picks it up.

Shula is calling a great game, contrary to what some of you think. It seems he is always calling pass plays on the side of the field that Tampa is blitzing from. Nice balance as well. Not sure why some of you expect this team, or any NFl team, to score on every single drive.

Just go ahead and jump...one less pessimist on the Huddle.




#2364735 Watching other games today

Posted by Smithers on 08 September 2013 - 07:01 PM

I bet the fans of at least 15 teams that played today who watched our game wish they had our defense or defensive coaching...
