#3139664 Greg Olsen is a baller

Posted by hepcat on 16 December 2014 - 06:27 PM

Maybe I'm morphing him with Lafell or something. My mistake, I thought he had a dropping problem when he got here


He had a problem with being a terrible rapper when he got here and I'm sure he still has that problem

#3139344 So if R.R is retained and keeps Shula....it is possible

Posted by hepcat on 16 December 2014 - 02:07 PM

Going to depend how the rest of the season plays out.  If they somehow get a home playoff game and beat say Seattle/Arizona or Green Bay/Detroit....it'd be pretty hard to say "Get out of town"


But if they miss the playoffs and you go back and look at how bad they were this season, it's a no brainer he should be gone IMO.  The team was at times the worst team in the NFL this year and that is inexcusable.

Won't be long before starving children in Africa are getting those shirts for free along with all the t-shirts that say the Broncos won the Superbowl last year.

#3137225 And the highest rated tackle over the past 2 games is...

Ron didn't put a gun to Gettleman's head when he signed Chandler to a 3 year contract.


Obviously they both expected him to be a contributor. It hasn't worked out. Simple as that.


Chandler is a great bench player.  He can play guard or tackle or hell could even fill in on the D-Line in a pinch.  Shouldn't be starting though....

#3136162 Derek Anderson the diamond in the rough

Posted by hepcat on 14 December 2014 - 08:41 PM

derek anderson is not a diamond in the rough. he's cut and polished, sitting in the mid-priced section at zales. you wouldn't use him to propose, but you'd get him for your wife when she's mad at you because you forgot her 35th birthday.


Phenomenal analogy, would read again 10/10

#3136155 Brady Quinn

Posted by hepcat on 14 December 2014 - 08:38 PM

Dick Stockton:  "Burton Breslin back to return the punt".  I also think he coined Donald LaFell amongst others.  I'm worried he's going to keel over and die during a game sometime. 



But Brady Quinn though, yes good commentator.  Way better than most of the other former players they have calling the games on Fox.  

#3135759 Derek Anderson the diamond in the rough

Derek Anderson is one of the best backup QBs in the NFL, maybe the best.  He does exactly what you want a backup QB to do - win games in spot duty if your starting QB is injured.  There's a reason he's 31 and a backup QB though and that's because he's been a starter on multiple teams and he wasn't good enough to keep the job.  He might get a shot somewhere else like McCown did in Tampa and more power to him if he does....but if I were him I'd ride out my career making millions of dollars backing up one of the most exciting QB's in the NFL.  With Cam's playing style he's sure to start a few games here and there over the next couple seasons.  Talk about a posh gig....

Ugh not good, hope he didn't tear anything.  TD is such a badass

Amazing that this thinking still exists in 2014.


Think about all the servers out there that are storing millions of racist and homophobic Youtube comments.

#3123137 New Orleans Fans Cheering When Cam Took Late Hit

Is anyone surprised

#3116972 Why would Cam stay in Carolina?

Posted by hepcat on 03 December 2014 - 01:33 PM

Here's something fun I dug up.  Excluding Cam, the Panthers have drafted 10 offensive players since 2011.  Only 3 are still on the roster, two of which were drafted in 2014.  Bold indicates they are still on the roster.



Round 5 pick 1: WR Kealoha Pilares

Round 6 pick 38: C Zachary Williams

Round 7 pick 41: T Lee Ziemba



Round 2 Pick 8: G Amini Silatolu

Round 4 Pick 9: WR Joe Adams



Round 4 Pick 11: G Edmund Kugbila

Round 6 Pick 14: RB Kenjon Barner



Round 1 Pick 28: WR Kelvin Benjamin

Round 3 Pick 28: G Trai Turner

(edit) Round 6 Pick 28: RB Tyler Gaffney


If I'm Cam I'm looking at that and saying, if you don't go offense heavy in this next draft or at least sign some talented FA's to help me, I'm out.

#3116878 Why would Cam stay in Carolina?

Posted by hepcat on 03 December 2014 - 12:27 PM

I recently had a discussion with my Saints fan neighbor.  He asked why the Panthers haven't already signed Cam to a big contract extention like Kaepernick signed in San Fran or Dalton in Cincy.  I said "Because Cam isn't staying with the Panthers."  


Why would Cam stay in Carolina?  The only reason is loyalty to the team that drafted him.  We all know how bad Cam wants to win.  Three out of his four seasons in Carolina have been awful losing seasons.  And little of it is his fault.  Cam can get the same money somewhere else and step onto a team that is lightyears ahead of Carolina in coaching and talent level.  He's guaranteed to be in Carolina one more season, maybe two if they use the franchise tag on him.  There will be teams LINING UP to make him HUGE MONEY offers once he hits free agency.  I'd be extremely surprised if he signed a new deal in Carolina and didn't at least test what options will be available to him.   He'd be an absolute fool not to entertain the idea of playing for someone else.  There are so many good teams that would be interested it's scary.  Here's a SHORT list:


Philadelphia: Can you imagine Cam in Chip Kelly's offense? They don't seem sold on either Foles or Sanchez and this could be a prime destination for Cam.


Dallas: Romo's back is due to give out any game now...Jerry Jones would break the bank for Cam.


Denver: How much longer will Manning play? Cam could keep them in contention for another 10 years.


Arizona: Palmer might come back next year if his injury heals but they need a QB of the future in the worst way. Great offensive coach and solid team all around.


Houston: Another solidly built team that just needs a QB to really take over. Cam went to JUCO at Blinn College near Houston...



And you can bet many other teams would at least give him a call.  The Panthers have one more season to change his mind.  I hope I'm wrong.

#3114118 Post Your Best Interview Advice/Tips

Posted by hepcat on 01 December 2014 - 06:16 PM

you'd be pretty damn confident in that lie. a buddy of mine got a job interview and on the application he said he was fluent in Spanish. Now he was pretty good at Spanish for a non-native speaker, but fluent was definitely a stretch.


His interviewer was a native fluent speaker.



The interviewer straight up called him out on it instantly. 


Well that's not something I'd lie about...haha.  I'm talking about, if someone asked you on a scale of 1-10, how proficient are you at Microsoft Excel, I'd say 9, even though I might be 6.  


As for lies, I'll make an example.  I'm in the audio business on the side.  I lie about what programs I'm proficient in.  I'm an expert at Pro Tools but not that familiar with Logic or Ableton or others like them.  But, when someone asks me my skills in those programs, I also say expert.  It's not hard to watch a Youtube video and learn those skills.  As for learning Spanish...that's not something you can fake!!

Panthers have been to the Superbowl, Jags haven't.  More wins overall.  No contest.
